    Looking for a Fjallraven rucksack in a dark/earth colour (navy, olive or khaki). Anyone know of a place that ships UPS/reasonably fast and actually has it in stock?

    It's been said many times here that The Gap's scarves are surprisingly Okay-ish for the money.

    Guess I'll try the streetwear crowd:

    Is it still acceptable to cuff the sleeves on an unstructured cotton blazer if you're wearing it with a tie? And would the casualness of the tie -- say, cotton or linen -- be a factor?

    Thanks...

    Regardless of the tie, it's fine. Obviously would look better with a knit tie and something slim of course Then again, I usually don't cuff for no reason.

    Sweet, thanks man...

    (I usually cuff because the sleeves run long in every jacket ever made, ever. Practical sprezz.)

    You can probably hem it yourself if you have a sewing machine. Not that tough to do at all.

    I've been wearing my new a.p.c. ps for 3 days now and they're my first pair of raw denim, but i don't think the fit looks right on me. I liked how the size 28 looked on me in Barneys , so i was told to size down to a 27 since they stretched (i don't think i'd be able to fit a 26, I couldn't even button the top on the 27). Now, but I'm starting to get second thoughts on these. I'm not sure if it's because they haven't fully stretched out yet, or because they haven't "settled" down yet, but at the moment, I'm not sure they look right. Opinions/Advice? Should i try a different cut/brand? [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I think they may possibly be the wrong cut for you, it looks like you have a lot of room in the thighs. Did you try the NC?

    When i tried the NC, they were bigger in the thighs than NS or PS. Supposedly, they're suppose to be smaller? otherwise, somebody might have stretched out the one i tried on at Barneys.

    I saw a picture in the WAYWT thread, and someone responded with "if you're going to wear jeans as trousers, hem them like trousers." What does that mean? Does that mean hem the jeans so there are no stacks? Here is the fit pic: WAYWT Picture

    Sag them some, then see what you think.

    Dumb advice. Just don't wear jeans with those other clothes, they're incongruous. Wear wool or cotton trousers. You aren't wearing that fit casually, are you? Because don't.
