    Quick question. Can someone tell me if LAYER O boots run big or small. Also, are they rather narrow or wide?

    Do take it to a seamstress.
    I think it's wort investing an amount in order for that jacket to look nice.
    If you do it yourself, you risk making it look like you stole it from a homeless man,
    but if a professional does it, it will look like it has character. :)
    my 2c

    I have a question.
    Fall starts soon... I just remembered today, trying on some shirts- HOW do people layer without the hassle of wrinkles, shirts pulling out beneath sweaters, shoulder seams being dislocated on
    inner layers etc.
    It can be rather uncomfortable to wear a slim (well) fitted shirt under a thick sweater, feels.. constricting.
    The worst thing for me is when I try to put something on while wearing my fitted shirts.

    optional reading:
    From easiest to hardest to layer for me:
    Blazer: Sometimes, the shirt shoulder seams dislocate, and I almost always have to pull the cuffs out of the jacket sleeve because my sleeves are fitted.
    Semi-thick or thick sweater: This is ever so aggravating. You need to raise your arms over your head to put it on, so that means your whole shirts becomes dislocated on your body
    when you do put it on.
    Light cardigan: Ok, THIS REALLY PISSES ME OFF. I can only imagine style bloggers getting ready with a help of 3 other people for this to look good. Any of this, for that matter.
    It's just impossible to take a slim fitted, light cardigan and layer it over a slim fitted shirt. The shirt's creases will be visible everywhere, it will get severely dislocated underneath and needless to say, when you wear a fitted shirt your movements aren't exactly liberated.

    I'm really bad at knowing when clothes fit. Even a t-shirt, I couldn't tell whether I was a small or medium until I went into a fitting room with multiple mirrors which showed me how ridiculous I looked in medium. Now I'm having this problem with a long coat I bought (only medium left in stock), can't tell whether it fits baggy or it doesn't fit. I also have trouble with skinny jeans and shirts. Is there any guide for how clothes are supposed to fit?

    Wouldn't agree.
    Many times, "proper fit" isn't the most comfortable fit.
    Do you feel more comfortable in a regular fit, slightly billowy shirt, or a slim fitting one, where you can't raise your arms without stretching the **** out of everything? :)

    Has anyone tried Corter's new belts? How do they compare to say Tanner's or Hollows natural veggie tan offerings? I know Tanner's is a stretch because it's a $100 belt, but I do think they're slightly overpriced for the job done (from what I've seen). Hollow's just restocked a 9 oz natural offering for $60 as well, which I'm very interested in.

    So I guess my main question is, does thickness matter? Corter's is 12-14 oz and looks like a beast, but Hollow's new 9 oz seems much more refined (waxed and smoother edges). What's the best value here?

    I just got my corter leather belt a week or so ago, and I couldnt be happier. I also have a tanner belt, a filson belt, and a handmade belt from a local leather worker for casual wear. The corter belt is so thick you could rest a cup on it, and is currently breaking in very nicely. The hollows belts look fantastic, but I seriously doubt I am going to buy another belt for 20 years, except maybe a dress belt to match some shoes. As far as quality goes, the corter is not as nicely finished as tanner, but its probably more durable and has a great rugged look to it.

    Are there any selvedge denim that is made with stretch material like elastene? I ride bikes fairly often which stretches out the thighs and waist on my jeans.

    LOL at the model buttoning the top two. Some of these stores don't even try to make their stuff look good.

    Is it possible that your clothing is too fitted?

    Thanks for responding. If you were to go back and do it again would you get Corters or Tanners first? Is the thickness a bigger pro than a more refined finish?

    What's a nice, cheap ($100 or less), versatile belt that'll age nicely?

    Mostly gonna wear them with some APC's i got to prevent waist stretching.




    Also, dumb question, but how do you size a belt? I wear a 27 in APC PS, so my waist is around 28" or 29" (I think)?


    edit: Actually, if it's that much better, I wouldn't mind spending more than $100.

    I like this leather jacket from the Japanese Company "Freewheelers", but it is $2000+ bucks.

    Is this is a good jacket? Is it worth the price? If not, are there similar choices? I don't know anything about leather jackets.
