    Looking for jeans that are similar in fit to APC NS, but have a larger/taller rise. Any suggestions?


    Blue Owl just got these Spellbound jeans that look pretty awesome. I noticed the rise was quite high.

    i dont know if this is a quick question but:

    if i stop wearing my Seiko 5 automatic watch for awhile, will it significantly decrease the life of the movement? im thinking about getting another watch, and id probably be alternating between the two.

    Unfortunately, shoe sizing isn't as precise as it should be. Europe uses a two-digit sizing system; the "Italian size 5" is actually using a UK standard (equivalent to EU 37), which should be a US 5.5, but may well be more like a US 6 or even 6.5. It depends on the make and the last.

    In short, your friend should only buy these shoes if he can return them for a full refund if they don't fit properly.

    If you wear the watch every other day, alternating probably won't have any effect on the life of the watch. If the watch is regularly off your wrist long enough to run down completely, consider getting a watch winder. Winders keep you from having to reset the time (and complications, if any) and prevents wear and tear in the crown winding mechanism. It also keeps the oil in the mechanism distributed, an issue of debatable importance with modern watches that use synthetic oil (such as your Seiko 5).

    A good watch winder can cost more than a Seiko 5. But if your new watch is also an automatic, then a winder may still be a good investment.

    if a garment has some percentage of wool in it, should i be worried about moth holes? or do they only eat 100% wool garments?

    Moth larvae prefer pure wool, but also eat wool blends. So, you should protect blends as you would pure wool.

    I just lost some wool-blend sweaters to moths -- even on cedar hangers.

    Looks like a cedar box is probably the best way to go.

    Looking to get some old school raglan sweatshirts, zippered hoodies. I would like better quality than AA, but not something as expensive as buzz. What are some stores/brands I should look for?

    After 1.5 years of constant wear in the rain, mud, jumping around in the woods and shit the soles on my W+H finally crapped out. Kinda regret not getting them vibram'd and shit.

    Anyways, this is cobbler-able right?
