    If they fit real good, who cares? The fit is probably the most important thing (unless you're a repro obsessed guy).

    Does anyone have sizing info on this Brown Sound Bronski sweater (at Context). I'm a bit worried about sleeve length.

    These are two week old rag & bone rb17. What do you guys think of the fit? Was it a good choice? I'm 6'3, 165lbs btw.

    I like them. I tried them on recently and was very impressed with the fit. It's a little against trend right now, but I love that they're a little wider below the knee.

    I really like the fit.

    Are those the "Grey Indigo" ones?

    Thanks! I was a little worried that they streched out a little too much. Overall, they're a really nice pair of jeans.

    Thanks bigskydream! They are just the "Grey" ones.

    A couple of quick questions. I am looking to buy some new decent but inexpensive (around $50-$75) jeans. I have heard a lot about Levis 501's, and I was wondering if these jeans on sale at Sears are the real thing. There is a Levis store at a nearby mall, but just wanted to make sure I didnt miss a good sale. Here is the link: http://www.sears.com/shc/s/p_10153_1...ing&cName=Mens Also, any recommendation for decent, slim fitting casual shirts that I can wear untucked? I also have a budget for about $50-60 each, but less the better. Thanks for your help .

    after falling in love with the denim of the 5EPxSF jeans, i'm seriously considering getting a pair of the raw LDB's...so, i've been searching the boards getting info on them...but, i'm still a bit unsure about sizing and what is the best way to get a pair...revolve?...asking mauro to order a pair?...e-mailing hitman about deadstock???

    my 5EPxSF's are sz 32, and i think i got the right size, as i didn't want them to be so tight around the thighs and below...but up top, they weren't very tight at all, from the get-go...and, i can slouch them now, if i wanted to...so, i would definitely want a tighter top-block on the more loosely cut LDB's...should i get a sz 31 in the raw LDB's then?...thanks

    I don't keep track of any online stockists, so no help there, but spiewak's quality is pretty good for the price. Fit tends to be true to size in my experience.

    I like the workwear stuff. The "street" line, or whatever it's called, usually fits well but is pretty unimpressive (they've got this line everywhere, in my experience). Sometimes you can fine older made in USA stuff at thrift shops. The stuff is gold.

    What jeans fit similar to Ande Whall Grifters? when I saw a pair of Rakers for sale on Superfuture, i looked for pictures, and i definitely prefer the non-tapered Grifters. I'm not a big fan of the streaky denim they come in now though, so what's my best option other than waiting for v4?

    To note, Speiwak actually makes real workwear.
