    What would you pair with a jacket like this, or is it a bad idea to buy something like this?

    Anyone know a source for mens espadrilles with ankle laces? I already know about espadrillesetc.com but was looking for more color options than they carry.

    Does it matter if I order from Norse Store or Norse Projects directly? Is it all still shipped in the same manner? Going to pick up one of their zip wallets and was just curious if one is better than the other in terms of shipping carrier and possible duties.

    That's what I figured but wanted to make sure since I remember people having issues last christmas with Norse Store. Thought they might ship from a different warehouse or something.

    Order was under $150 so duties shouldn't be bad if there are any.

    Looking for a nice pair of sunglasses in this style (I think... d-frame?) With a nice weight to it and with a metal bridge and arms preferably however I'll take all suggestions.

    Good Question: How Often Should We Wash Jeans?


    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Every man, woman and child seems to have a favorite pair of blue jeans.
    But how often you wash them, or “warsh” them like our grandmothers used to say, is up for debate.
    Speaking at a conference this week, Levi’s CEO Chip Bergh told the crowd that he had never washed the jeans he was wearing.
    He said it’s about conserving water, and washing too often breaks down denim.
    Mall of America trend specialist Sara Rogers disagrees, even though she’s heard the argument before.
    “Denim is the backbone of most great wardrobes,” Rogers said.
    While Bergh recommends spot-cleaning your jeans with a tooth brush or sponge, Rogers says go ahead and throw them in the washer, but not too often.
    “Every six months I think would be the most I would go, and for most people probably every two months is good,” she said.
    And that depends on how dirty they get.
    “I do know another tip though for washing your jeans, especially if they’re a darker blue, is to wash them inside out in vinegar,” she said.
    Rogers recommends air-drying, too.
    A 2011 study by the University[​IMG] of Alberta showed that bacteria levels were similar between a pair of jeans that were never washed and a pair washed every two weeks.

    The study recommends washing your jeans only every once in a while.

    I'm looking for a pair of pants like these (http://goodhoodstore.com/store/4916 and http://www.e35shop.com/products/levis-vintage-clothing-1920s-pleated-chino-pink) in a men's style and sizing. I prefer the color to be navy, but I'm all for different colors. I wasn't quite sure what brands to look at. I've searched for wider fit and pleated trousers, but I would prefer something with a tapered leg so that the pants bows out and goes back in, if you know what I'm talking about. These search terms, though, aren't of much help. Thanks!

    this is probably a bit early in the year, but I'm wondering where I can get some beater heavy knitwear (cardigan), like ones that will be worn when rubbing against a back pack for the whole day (I expect/don't mind piling)

    I'm looking for something like this

    - under $200 and ships to/available to Canadians
    - heavy thick wool/wool blend yarns, good enough for almost freezing weather with a long sleeve t or button up underneath, like inverllan but cheaper
    - densely knitted, so not much gaps between the yarns where wind could get through.
    - dark colours like dark green, greys, navy, burgundy etc
    - shawl collar or high collar
    - preferably buttons instead of zippers
    - preferably has outer pockets
    - I'm not picky at all about intricate weaves or whatever, so hopefully this cuts down cost


    Much appreciated if you guys could point me towards some brands/shops that offers such a thing right now or maybe in a couple of months

    p.s. if you are looking to get rid of a knit in decent shape used like this for like a 41-44" chest then pm me :D

    Sounds like an REI type store would have that kind of stuff.
