    What is a BoO shirt size 4 equivalent to? an extra large? 42?
    42
    Probably a 2, though it would be helpful if you listed some specific brands that you're a small in. If you're referring to j.crew or similar lines then you could probably pull off a 3. If you're talking about more fitted stuff like gitman vintage, probably a 2. Going to NYC this weekend. Gonna' be pretty busy for the most part but definitely going to get some shopping in. Other than Barneys what are some recommendations for stores I don't know about?
    If you are a true/slim 36, you're a 1

    Quick question:
    How's Levi's 511 sizing? I can't find a size chart anywhere.

    I wear 30 in APC's Petit Standard. Since PS are vanity sized, do I go for 32 in Levi's?


    good luck.

    levi's are all over the map on this shit. you can go try on 8 pairs of the same size and get 8 different fits.

    What is the difference between Converse Chuck Taylor "OX" and "Core OX" sneakers? I've been trying to google this without any success.

    Hi SF members. Long time lurker, first time poster with a quick and easy question. I'm looking for a good place to buy casual button-up shirts, either in-store (San Francisco area) or online. I'm mainly looking for solid and patterned shirts to wear with jeans and black sneakers. I'm looking for shirts in the $30-50 range. Thanks for any tips.]


    Lands end canvas. find the thread here for coupons.

    Thanks for the tip, just ordered some short-sleeves and polos from Lands End. Problem is they don't have tall sizes, so I can't get long sleeve shirts from them (I have a 16 1/2 neck, 42" chest and 37" sleeve). Any places (online or in-store) that sell casual shirts in a similar price range in tall sizes?

    I'm sure this has been asked, but figured I'd ask in this quick question section: How does sizing in APC pants/cords compare to their raw denim sizing? I wear a 29 in the petit standard raw, a 30-31 in Nudie Thin Finn, 29-30 in Diesel Thanaz and Thavar. What size should I get in the Petit Standard Cords?

    Need help choosing between 2 backpacks... [​IMG] Pros - To me more stylish of the two, big fan of the leather straps, extremely durable with long company history. Cons - A little too simple, might lack the proper support for a backpack I am trying to carry around for at least 4 years. [​IMG] Pros - Seems like the ultimate backpack for backpacking and stuff. More technical than the Duluth. Cons - Looks too boring and not as stylish. Costs more too.

    Anyone get a pair of these Comme des Garcons shoes this season or have experience with her footwear in general? Wanted to know what the sizing was like on them. Any help would be much appreciated. [​IMG]

    Get the Goruck bag, I have one and as we say in my line of work, it's the 'cat's ass' (i.e., really good). It certainly lacks the heritage looks of the Duluth bag (and they make a great bag too) but I've found with bags/packs/luggage function trumps fashion, although the goruck folks seem to have found a happy medium with a functional mil-spec bag that doesn't make you look like an over-enthusiastic airsofter wannabe. Cordura isn't the most stylish of materials, but it looks better once broken in.

    I'm really really torn between both of those bags... Maybe I'll get the Duluth and the GR2... I don't have any big backpacks anyway.
