    Can someone recommend me a nice laptop bag, preferably under $100? No leather either (not that you could get a leather bag at that pricepoint) - rains way too much around here.

    Thanks!

    Are there any denim brands like N&F that make 'weird' (as in strange, not the fit) jeans like the red weft and stainless steel jeans they have? I love their stuff but it's hard to come by in England and I'd rather not limit myself to one brand.

    Recently picked up a pair of red denim (a pretty dark cranberry). I assume that it's probably best to keep the rest of my outfit fairly understated so I don't look like a peacock, but are there any colours I should go for/avoid like the plague?

    I have a pair of APC New Cure and N&F Weird guys, worn both for about a year, never washed. Both are starting to stretch/sag through the waist. Will washing fix the stretching? Or, is just a by-product of wear - if I'm unhappy with it, time to buy a new pair?

    Yea, I am not too sure on the longevity but for $60. I am going to go check them out this week. I figure at <100 bucks if I don't wear them to much no biggie and if I do then next year I will get a heritage pair from too boot or the likes.

    If you have had two custom dress shirts made, should the tailor provide your measurements on request or is that his IP so-to-speak?

    Found these in my basement today...They used to fit my older brother.
    Do they still have play?

    Anyways the leather bike jacket is wilsons full grain fits well I think. Only concern is the light coloration. I think it looks solid with the jeans and maybe a simple t-shirt or henley? I think button downs would be a stretch?

    The second is an old jcrew jacket. Cotton. It fits a bit boxy but I think it would look solid under a button up or simple sweater?

    Am I along the right lines or do these need to find their way back into the basement?

    Just hand wash them in cold water with Woolite. They'll shrink back close to what they were like when you bought them. Hang dry.

    I like the moto. I thought the sleeves were long, but now I changed my mind.

    The second one could be tailored, what size are they?

    The moto is a medium and the jcrew jacket is a large. The jcrew jacket is just a bit boxy.
    Outfit ideas with the moto? I am thinking its fall spring only due to color. Maybe I will give it a go next week with some dark jeans, chelseas, and a v neck tee. Either way I am happy I went into the basement :D

    Are W+H tiger hoodies worth the money? And how do they fit (I'm an XS in Uniqlo)? Thinking of picking up one for this fall, the raglan tiger one or is there a better option for the money (besides for Uniqlo, those don't really last long =\)
