    Thought I'd try asking again:

    Where can I get nice, affordable streetwear boots in size 6?

    How do you remove the "pills" from sweaters. I have a couple of sweaters that are pilling quite a bit and I'd like to find a way to remove them.

    Guys--

    Please advise-- buying my first BoO shirt, a cool madras for the spring/ summer. I wear a size 40reg jacket, 16/34 dress shirt, 5'9 175 lbs, 31 or 32" waist. Which numbered size should I order? Am I a large or extra large? Which numbered size would I be )Barneys lists by numbered size, while other websites put the s-m-L-XL size??)

    thank you!

    that madras is beautiful. From what I've read, I think a L would fit you.

    How do I keep non-skinny jeans from flaring out between the knee and ankle and looking like a bootcut jean? I'm having this issue with my raw indigo Rag & Bone RB15, which isn't a baggy jean by any means, but a relatively slim straight leg that fits similar to the Acne Mic but higher rise (for those not familiar). Why exactly does this happen? Is it just the nature of rigid denim that's not super slim below the knee?

    The only solutions I can think of are:

    go to a denim tailor and have them tapered a bit
    shorten so there's less break
    just wait for them to soften up so the stacking/piling happens closer to the ankle as opposed to higher up

    Other suggestions welcome.

    What's a size 3 in MOTO boots equal? If smaller than my shoe size, can I never get a pair, or do they do MTO in larger sizes?

    When you develop honeycombs behind the knee, and through stretching and wear, the area around the knee tends to become narrower than the hem unless the jeans are tapered. However, I think this is a desirable look and unless the jeans are bootcuts, it doesnt look bad IMO.

    But yes, getting more heavily tapered jeans would reduce the size of the hem in comparison to the knee area.

    That is how jeans should look.

    thank you! I think I'll go for a large, and will plan to exchange for an XL if too snug (XL would prob need some tailoring / extra expense on an already expensive shirt tho)
