    It sounds fine. Lace it up tight and it shouldn't slip. You can try adding an insole to the boots or wear thicker socks.

    Yeah I was just running in it with no problem. I guess all I'm worried about is it isn't really a "tight" fit since I see all this talk about breaking in boots

    Hey guys, having a problem.

    Going to buy some new jeans online and I prefer the slim/straight jeans. I'm 5'10 150lbs, most people say I'm a slim/skinny build but think I'm average.

    I've been wearing 31x32 for the past 2 years, but now my jeans which consist of 508 Levis and other Slim/Straight jeans are getting a bit tight. A bit around my calf and butt region. I'm debating whether to get 32x32 or even 33x32 because some slim/straight cuts are actually skinny.

    For these jeans:
    Altamont The Whilshire Staple
    Comune The Lindon Jeans

    Should I go for the 32x32 or 33x32? I read some reviews that the jeans may feel a bit tight which is why I'm debating to go up to 33. Thanks in advance.

    anyone know a site where they can compare brands and other retailers really quickly?

    only one I know of is www.mpashop.com but it is not exactly meant for that.

    Would just go with forum affiliate Epaulet in that price range. That's where a majority of my work clothes come from. Probably mid gray / charcoal / navy / something brown toned.

    What do people here think of "Freewheelers & Co", Japan made. I don't remember reading any reference to it or seeing it much. Is it legit? (Esp the ones with the extra trim by their pockets)

    Is there a limit to how much a tailor can take in the bottom of a jacket? I need probably 5 inches taken in around the waist and then maybe 3 or so out of the chest. If this would be better served in the tailors thread I can move it over there. Thought this could be a simple answer.

    I would just abandon that particular jacket and cut my losses.

    Mismo stuffs look nice on their own, but they don't really carry well with clothing... IMO.

    I just scored a pair of AE Strands at the suggestion of a member here and am now addicted, as well as enlightened as to what to wear. Anyway... Among the things I would like to change with my wardrobe a few more pairs of nice shoes that I can wear to work and to go out in are on the list. I am not sure where they fit in but the shoes that have my eye right now are the AE Neumoks, in particular the blues. Nordstrom's has them for $170, $90 off. That is a hell of a deal for a new pair, I believe. Any reason to not get them?

    If this will only be your second pair of good shoes, I would suggest getting something more versatile than blue wingtips.

    The purchase will not hold me back from getting something else. I'm just not sure if there is room for them in any wardrobe, especially in August.
