    Yes, they do have the color spectrum I like, but they US based.

    I should have mentioned that I live in Euroland.

    A Fine Pair of Shoes has a very good selection of Alfred Sargent shoes and boots. You could look into Tricker's too. Both brands offer a made-to-order service if you can't find exactly what you want.

    Lurker here ...

    I have a pair of month old APC New Standards that are just stretching out nicely, they are my first pair of anything-near-nice jeans and on Saturday I dropped my new japanese kitchen knife and put a very neat 1cm slice into the inside leg around the knee.

    Whats the best way to repair a very clean cut in denim like this?

    Can someone recommend me a brand that makes quality chinos with buttons and slim fitting in the $100-200 price range. I am looking to but 4 new pairs and j.crew seems to be my only option. I like some that I have seen on mrporter.com but they have zippers or are in the >$300 price range.

    Generally. Not at very conservative or formal occasions.



    Ask the streetwear forum, they're the experts in this stuff. I hate the general aesthetic over there, but they do know about denim repairs.

    Personally, I would back it with a chino type twill cloth in a rectangle, sew that around the outside, then zig zag over the cut closely to prevent fraying. Good old fashioned patching.

    The colors are seasonal, they have all sorts of colors in the spring/summer. They were on clearance not too long ago. Not much you can do about the US issue though, other than proxies. Milanos show up on B&S pretty frequently.
