    anyone can recommend me a quality beige/khaki chino pants which is kinda regular fit with tapered leg? I have huge thighs and calves, so the usual mentioned brands probably won't fit me well, for example I have a pair of uniqlo vintage chino waist size 31 (upsize 1), and it's borderline tight on the thighs and calves..

    thanks :)

    This sweater from Target is actually nice soft fabric with good weight too it. Not thin at all. It is comparable to what you would pay 2-4x as much in terms of the style and comfort you are looking for. I have owned both ranges. . .

    Thinking about a new pair of sunglasses. Need polarized and want a silver/grey color. Thinking about the following, I like the practicality of the graduated lens:

    Optical quality is important.

    Thoughts on alternatives to MJ that offer similar or better quality?

    I'd say if you're looking at Maui Jims, then to make sure you take Costa Del Mars into consideration. MJ's have great lenses, but I think Costa may actually exceed them.

    I never understood how you wear these hats forward. Maybe my head is oddly shaped head but I tried to get some "cool" look wearing it and I just "wasnt feelin it" know what I mean?????

    Epaulet has some as does. There's also the Naked and Famous Weird Guy selvedge chino. Are your calves big too? I have some uniqlo chinos from when I was in NY a couple of years ago and the calves are not slim at all. It fit similar to the 501

    Hi, thanks for the reply. Yeah my calves are big too, that's why I'm pretty sure I won't be able to fit into the Epaulet chinos comfortably. I think my biggest concern is that my waist (sz.30) and leg size is not proportional, so I have small waist and huge legs.
    I bought the uniqlo chinos just a year ago, so maybe they've changed the cut? Anyway, I think my only option is to just buy a regular straight chino, and bring it in to the tailor to taper it? Or do you know any other options?
    Thanks. Appreciate it.

    Does Yoox sometimes incorrectly list the MSRP of items or does it sell items that are from several seasons ago? I saw some stuff that I thought retailed for a lot higher than what was marked as their MSRP.

    Looking for boots similar to frye harness boots, but w/o all the harness straps. I'm really looking for something that has a similarly styled chiseled toe. Suggestions?

    Has anyone ordered from Flatspot.com? How fast was their shipping? Was their customer service any good?

    And can anyone comment on the quality of the Makr Farm Ruck Sack and its carrying capacity?
