    You can try Uniqlo and Club Monaco both in their slim fit line.

    No idea about the jumpers/cardigans, but have two of their hand-woven acrylic scarves. Very cheap, very awesome.

    If the jumpers are anything like the scarves there will be the odd irregularity. That might not be your thing, though, if you're
    looking for something like SNS...

    So…I have what may be an incredibly stupid question, but:

    With raw denim, is there any way to make buttoning them easier? I don't mean losing weight in the waist, as that's not the problem. I mean that it feels like I need twice my normal strength to get the fly buttoned. Is there a way to break the buttons in somehow?

    Thanks for your time!

    the pants are probably new. just keep wearing them...the button holes will loosen up over time.

    you can stick a pen through the hole when you aren't wearing them to spread it out some...but it's really not necessary.

    Yeah just wear them and they'll loosen up pretty quickly. What's the weight of the denim? I've never had anything over 15oz and those softened up after about 2 weeks of wear.

    Question - I mostly wear dark denim or chinos - mostly more casual type pants. Looking for a ~1.5" snuff suede belt that wouldn't clash too horribly, but I'm finding that most of them come with a brass buckle (in particular I have my eye on Carmina's snuff suede belt). Is that kosher to wear with a steel watch? Also, is it a bad idea to wear a snuff suede belt with snuff suede LWBs?

    Thanks. They're 14.5 oz. I look forward to breaking them in.

    What is the difference between Italian suit drop and American suit drop? I know American suit drop refers to the differences (in inches) between the jacket size and pant waist (i.e. 44R drop 6 means the pants are a 38 waist).

    But it sounds like Italian suit drop is measured differently. Anyone care to explain how?

    Thanks!

    can any guys in the Baltimore, MD area give me a recommendation for a cobbler? I just want to get a vibram half sole put on my Oak Street Tench Boots and the 2 places I called are wanting to charge $45/$50....seems way high from what I've read in the various threads on here.

    preferably, northern baltimore county but I'll take any decent recommendation! (i don't know if there is a better place to ask these questions).

    Read an article in the paper today, and one of the subjects' boots looked great to me. Below is a picture of the group featured in the article -- I'm interested in the pair of boots worn by the man who's sitting on the stool.

    Here's another picture from the article.

    Thanks in advance.

    Anyone seen a nice (small) winter jacket/coat anywhere on sale? It's still damn cold up North. :/

    Had my eye on that White Mountaineering Camo jacket, not sure about the print though...


    Thanks for letting me know!

    Picked up a Puma jacket on eBay that was advertized as Puma Mihara Yasuhiro and in the bad photos looked like it might have been. With the item in hand tho I'm suspecting it's just a basic jacket, and the only things really Mihara-ish about it are the misaligned stealth reflective pinstripes. Before I attempt to send it back to the seller as mis-advertized I wanted to see if anyone of you knew for sure: Mihara, yes or no? (No declaration that it is on tags or on Puma descriptions.)

    Here's an EU catalog shot, looks like the item isn't distributed in the US.
