    Ok these bulldogs are NOT the worst looking pair of shorts I've ever seen but they are no where as cool as real SURF Trunks. Costa Rica is a surfing paradise, the majority of the guys will be wearing real Surf Trunks and for good reason. And they all know someone wearing Surf Trunks is more into their culture, haha. Ok maybe I'm getting a little too surfer about it. But seriously...

    If you like those Bulldogs which I think are $240...
    You will probably like these QuiKsilver Surftrunks for $50.

    And if you wanna go crazy, check out this link. It's got every surftrunk known to man on it. You can even filter by length, brand, color, price range...

    Sure thing, but you can't compare those to Orlebar bulldog? Much diffrence and I dont think they will have the same fit as they will.

    What recommendations do you have for a casual shoe with all of the following characteristics:

    --fits a custom orthotic-very important
    --casual--I am looking for something just a step up from athletic shoes
    --comfortable--good for walking around lots
    --stylish but classic looking--with shorts or jeans
    --somewhat lightweight if possible, though not the most important characteristic, good for summer

    Would you say the Converse Jack Purcells fit the qualifications I listed above? Also, would you recommend leather or canvas JPs--and why?

    Take a look at MMM Gats and CP Achilles.

    I don't find chucks comfortable for walking a lot, I assume JP would be similar construction.

    Oh my, why would you look at American labels when you can have anything you want made to measure locally for 1K per suit, in nice tropical worsteds . . .

    The first picture shows a good fit, while the other two show a need for it to be trimmed at the waist.

    I think the jacket looks good but your shirt sleeves are too long. Can you move the button on the cuff or have them taken in at the shoulder.

    It looks pretty good. It's hard to tell if the sleeves are too short or if just that your shirt sleeves are too long though.

    So I very much dislike bow ties. But need one for an event coming up.
    It seems you can no longer (easily) find a bow tie with a specific size.

    Where do you buy bow ties that are self tied and a preset size, I don't want to have a size adjustment clip in the back.
    I'm looking for a 7 1/2 Black Diamond bow tie.

    Thanks!
