    lol halis we'r planning on having the same sick look then :p How much are the RW at UO? (thought it was you who told me that... where do you plan to buy your RW and for how much?) I went to Neon today and they had them for 337... Didnt go to UO since men and shoes are in st-cath. I plan to go to les etoffes soon to try the 14% merino wool and see the cardigans + hoodies [​IMG]

    Hey if Brandon, hooks up any deals for you, both of youse being from Montreal, but sure to help your Vancouver friend out.

    If anyone wants anything from the Times Profile Shop in Vancouver, which I believe will have all available styles and items, let me know, I'll help you out!


    They don't. I went there the other day to pick up something and they didn't have it in my size. WTF - I would fully expect a flagship store to have all sizes of all inventory at all times.

    Seeing as I've yet to find pictures of a faded pair of Organic Weirdguy's, I figured I'd post a couple of mine here. They're only three months in, with slight fading. I had to wash them recently, because I spent the summer roaming around Central America and they were smelling pretty bad... I'll report back in another few months with updated pictures. While it certainly won't be getting any high contrast fades, I'm pretty happy with the color. Nonetheless, I'm thinking about getting a pair of the deep indigos soon to have a more standard pair of jeans, with the added bonus that they will be thicker for the winter...

    Nice! I just got myself a pair of those, and have been wearing them for about a week and a bit now. I love how those fades look! They are there, but not too high contrast. This is actually more like what I was looking for compared to the dramatic fades from the dark indigo. I'm looking forward to some nice fades like that on mine! Thanks for the pictures!

    PS : Were you wearing these like every day for the 3 months, or were you wearing other jeans too?

    Thinking of buying a pair of black power stretch skinny guys, but how's the sizing work. I get that you're supposed to size down on the WGs, but what about the Skinnys? Are they true to size?

    I saw the Naked and Famous trunk sale here in Toronto at the Bloor Street Holt Renfrew today. They're going to be at Yorkdale mall tomorrow (Sunday Sept 12) if you want to go meet the owner and see all their denim styles. They were doing orders for custom jeans, which is pretty cool. They had one denim with rainbow sparkles embedded in it, it was crazy.

    They also had a pair of jeans made from 32oz denim, which were so stiff they were free-standing in the middle of the store. I took a photo, which I've attached to this message. The guy I was chatting with said they're unbelievably hard to manufacture and need to be custom ordered, and the price was around $2500. Yikes!



    Interesting stuff, I wonder if any person would order those and then lost his ball hair for such a stiff garment.

    Well in the Montreal UO they have no red wing boots. All they had were these cheap looking leather boots. Was in there yesterday. Never knew UO sold RWs lol.

    Check U&I on Saint Laurent. They stock RWs. Seems like we've had an influx of montreal members. Probably should take all this to a new thread[​IMG]
