    TBH, I cannot tell the difference between what you have on and a pair of chinos. There is no real shape to that cut of denim. I think they're too loose.


    I see somebody else recommended a duffle coat, and I would second that. Look at the ones on LL Bean.

    Hi all,

    I found a really nice cotton blazer in navy but I can't decide between two size.
    The smallest size looks great but when I close the first of the two buttons it is a bit (just a bit) to tight.
    On size above is ok but I can feel that my shoulders are not embraced enough.

    The seller told me to take the smallest size since the cotton will strech a bit to finally perfectly fit my body. According to him this a brand new cloth and it will soften by wearing it and the size would be perfect after few worns.

    What is you opinion. I am used to get by raw jeans to strech but what about a 100% cotton vest?

    Thank you.

    Do not buy that, you're going to look like a civil war colonol. To more directly answer your question, it looks like it's from the '80s.

    Ann D sizing - at a 40 chest & 32 waist, I'd generally be a L in tops and a M in bottoms, correct?

    Looking into getting a pair of Japan Blue by Momotaro JB0701, was hoping the final waist would stretch out by 1-1.25" and thigh by 0.5" after wear so I could size down, is this possible? Also, how much does inseam shrink after hot soak and/or cold washes? I currently wear 30.75" inseam (after cuffing) and thinking about getting a 32" inseam, is this enough to account for shrinkage and an 0.875-1" cuff? Thanks!!

    I just bought a new pair of Sperry A/Os and the leather is pretty dried out from sitting in the box for a while I presume. Is it safe to use Bick 4 leather conditioner on them or will it ruin the leather? I want them to get a nice beat up look, but not for the leather to dry out and rip/tear

    What are some good American and European made clothing brands available in America? I'm trying to get away from the "made in china" stuff, even if it is a semi-decent name.

    Yup, pretty much everything on SF (at least, everything in MC) is made in America/Europe. The brands that make their stuff in China aren't considered even "semi-decent" most of the time.

    Oh, hello...

    Anyone know the best way to guard MMM GATs against the elements? The right suede guard, leather guard, etc. (especially ones that won't ruin the other material). That would be awesome.
