    Huh. Now reconsidering whether I should have gotten plum duck pants... While at work I saw the newsletter and immediately bought the white pants (good white pants are so rare to come by) and the brick pants without consideration for longer than five minutes.

    Which is more versatile, plum or brick?

    BOTH! They are pretty equal I think. Bth serve as a bright pant for spring, really depends on which cut you prefer.

    I like both but see more versatility in the plum because of the dark almost burgundy undertone, the brick color looks like a lot of fun but the plum seems like it could mix business with pleasure.

    I saw them both in the store. I'd say the brick is more versatile, both for its color and its fit. The walt trouser can dress up or down. The rivet's shorter rise twinned with the brightness of the plum make it a casual pant.

    Picked up my french blues and koi shirt at the orchard store today. Thanks to Mike for being so accommodating to my group. The chambray floral was great, but small was slightly too small and medium was a little too large.

    Mike-
    Any chance we can purchase existing dress shirt patterns but get them made with a point collar (i.e. Navy Gingham, Purple/Brown Gingham, etc.)?

    Mike -- Can't believe the caramel duck canvas sold out. Are you going to be able to restock these and the French blues?

    I just recently set up an account on Mint and embarrassed myself when I saw the "budgets" it automatically set up for me based on the past couple months of transactions it pulled in.

    Clothing $830
    Groceries $150
    Gas & Fuel $150
    Restaurants $80
    Fast Food $20
    Coffee Shops $10

    I need professional help... can't sustain that sort of spending.

    It's times like this I appreciate this board so much, it's such a relief knowing there are dudes like me, of course it's not great knowing that I have a problem but I feel a lot better knowing that other people have it too.

    As expensive as this addiction is, I guess we have to be thankful for having good taste?

    Just wanna ask again if there will be restock on the plum ducks? I wanna know before I get the 30 that's available now since I should be getting a 31. I have a 30 in the gunmetal I find them a bit tight on the thighs and waist.

    If that's the past couple of months you're doing really well on grocery/restaurant/coffee spending. Nothing at bars?


    Yeah the Alden thread has people strategizing how to hide new pairs of shoes or how to tell their wives.
