New SF member and not sure where to find the answer you're looking for? Have a quick question that doesn't belong in a current thread? Welcome, you found the right place.

This is a weekly thread where new users can ask quick questions and get a solid answer. If a thread already exists that would be more helpful, we will point you in the right direction. The only stupid question is the one that isn't asked.....so ask away!

Can anyone recommend some non-CM linen (or other summery, breathable) pants for someone who normally wears a 34" inseam? I'm having trouble finding anything that's in between colonel sanders or hyper cropped 3/4 pants. Black preferred but not being too choosy on that point right now!

Hello all,
Just wondering whether anyone on here could identify a specific brand for a hat. I first saw it on holiday on Greece about two weeks ago (yes, I got out just in time!
). It is a 'boonie' stye but was by a Chinese themed brand (small black label with white Chinese and English writing on the side) I'm afraid I have no recollection of the name, hence the query. It looked great. I know it's a long shot but if anyone could identify it they would have my eternal gratitude.
Many thanks,
Tim

I would really love a pair of white, smart sneakers, like Common Projects, or Stan Smiths.

Only problem is I have a wide foot (EE), and sneakers of this nature don't normally stretch widthwise without some serious discomfort.

Anybody know where to find a quality sneaker like this in a wide width? Where my wide width people at?

Thanks!

Welcome to the forum, GB. Have you tried on a pair of Buttero? I find that they run a little wider than CP and Stan Smiths. No wide widths, but it might be worth trying a pair on. The leather ones stretch a lot more than the canvas.

Thanks I'll check this out! My only concern would have been that with these shoes, the sole extends up and covers some of the foot, which always limits stretching. But they say to order one size tighter, so it may be wide enough off the bat.
Appreciate the reccomendation!

Anyone know where to find similar trousers/jeans/chinos or whatever you would call these? Really like the look of them and how they seem to fit perfectly on the leg. Or if anyone could help provide me with a few key words so I could search for them myself. Also if you know any high street stores like topman or river island etc sell them. Thanks.

Compared to the Levi 511's, should I order the same size in Unbranded UB101s for a similar fit? Looking for a selvage around that price range and I live pretty far from any stores that carry brands like that and APC.
