    Just purchasesd an old Army surplus canteen in insulated holster w/ belt clips. 5.95.

    I'm going to distress it up a little and then sell the idea to J. Crew to retail these as a men's accessory for like $150.

    Cold water wash with woolite dark, hang to dry. Shouldn't have a problem.

    Sounds good- that's my usual routine. And if the old lady gets a hold of it and decides to "do me a favor" by washing and drying it?

    Then it's your fault for not having the balls to stand up and take over your own laundry. My wife and I have been doing our own laundry probably since the day we moved in together. Safer for both parties that way.

    For every one of the elitists that bags on J Crew, there is one wearing a $1000 outfit but looks like a clown. I'm not going to go in that thread and "throw down" because it's just not possible to convince them they'd look better in a $50 J Crew outfit.

    for what it's worth, I think generally the J. Crew thread contributors are nicer than than anywhere else on the forum. Just sayin.

    Can anyone comment on the fit difference b/w the vintage slim and straight fit cords? I have a local store, but they only carry the straight fit. Mostly curious how much slimmer the thigh is, and if the top block/waist runs slimmer (ie truer to size), as the straight fit run pretty large.

    Since they don't make a 31/34 in hardly any of their pants, and their 32 is typically closer to a 34, it's tricky getting them to work. But fuck me: a decent fitting pair of cords is hard to find these days. Or, a decent pair that's not 45rpm...

    Have only seen/tried on the straight fit meself. When you were in the store, you shoulda asked the clerk.

    is there any consistency to j crew's pant inseems?
    I have a pair of Urban slim fit 32x34 and they measure 33"
    And a pair of Linen Classic slim fit 31x32 that measure 32.5"
    And white jeans 32x34 that measure 33.5"

    basically all over the place, weird that the 32s run large and the 34s short, I wonder if this a general trend or coincidence?

    Well, that assumes they know anything about product they don't stock and never see. I didn't think of it at the time, and I can easily call them and see what they say, but none of them are likely to have tried them on, while someone on the forum may own a pair.

    Sorry, I just assumed that the "fucking gay dumb family" wasn't yours [​IMG] On a totally random note, that's partly why I hate using bleach. I quit using it for a while but my POS expensive front loader pools water inside somewhere and mold grows, making the washer REEK. Bleach became a periodic necessity again.
