    I am selling a brand new moncler gerard vest which I purchased to wear under my jackets. Unfortunately it is slightly to big for me.

    Fused, half and full canvas are available. From $750, $850 and $975 respectively and helps meet most peoples needs. While im not expecting the average style forum member would want to consider a fused option, Im actually wearing my fused suit today... While i prefer the lapel roll on the canvassed options, its advantage is that its extremely lightweight and still has great shape and drape

    One we get the first months fittings done ill get some photos loaded

    Mine ended up being fused, but like, I probably can't tell the difference, and it's an occasional item, so I assume that's totally cool.

    I'd be interested in this, though I do need to wait until I get a new job.

    Full canvas from $975 is great. Any estimates on costs of extra pair of pants?

    Also, this is a broader question to anyone, is there any advantages of half canvas over full canvas?

    Fair warning: this is SW&D related...
    I took my new Noir 001 Stonewashed jeans (Up There Store's house brand) out to Walwa this weekend to break them in. I'm extremely happy with them, and they finally ended my quest for some quality selfedge, washed denim in a slim straight fit to wear when I am out in the country.

    When I decided to order a pair, the guys from Up There Store simply sent a pair of their standard indigo raw 001 denim over to their Melbourne based stonewasher, which I thought was kind of cool. They came back a few days later.Thus they come with all the standard raw denim features. The fabric is really interesting to look at - the heathered stonewashing has a lot of interesting folds/creasemarks in the colour. They are a really vivid shade of blue, much more vivid than a standard stonewash. The colour doesn't come out as much in the pictures since these were taken in overcast conditions. They are just taken with an iPad and really don't do them justice.

    Anyway, this is all a long winded way of saying that they do indeed stand out from a pair of Levis 501s, which is something I was kinda worried about. I never thought I'd wax lyrical about a pair of stonewashed denim, but these are really nice. They even garnered a few compliments from the fam, which is kinda rare for stonewashed denim I imagine.

    Not sure I would've bought them at full retail (that's more to do with my general dislike of paying a lot for denim than anything else), but I had a $225 gift certificate that I hadn't used in 2 years, so I figured this was a good time to finally get some use out of it.

    They are 15.5 oz, so not exactly a light summer weight, but they feel a hell of a lot lighter and more breatheable, even, than raw denim. Might get them hemmed once Up There Store gets their chain stitching machine game in order.

    Anyway, it's good to see an Australian store turning out some quality product.

    Been visiting these forums a lot lately so I thought I'd pop in here and say Hi.

    It sounds like a staple item that will serve its intended purpose very well.

    I believe that 20% off deal ended today/yesterday, might have missed it.
