    Denim Question:

    1. Any differences between the APC New Standard and the Skull 5010xx (6x6) raw? I've compared them side-by-side and seems like the measurements are very similar.

    2. Are the Skulls sanfordized (no shrink)?

    3. I have a 28 in APC NS (worn a belt for 3 months) and the waist fit is solid. Would the Skull size 30 be good?

    I'm too far away from BiG or SelfEdge to go try them on myself.

    THANKS!!!

    Is there anywhere to buy a Tanner belt online? Google search proved futile.

    Does anyone have any suggestions for boots similar to the Red Wing Gentleman Travelers? I absolutely love them, but the biggest size I can find is a 12, and I wear a 14 US. I also saw these, http://www.zappos.com/n/p/dp/28439986/c/3.html, but they're really not the same.

    Any suggestions for places to look, and thoughts on the boots above?

    Anybody have a Merc Harrington (http://www.mercclothingstore.com/p-ME-1104106-CRM.html) and can comment on the relative sizing? The description says "European cut for a slim, snug fit", who the hell knows what that means without measurements.

    Check ebay. Most auctions have measurements.

    Anyone heard of Peckers brand? How is it? The name sounds strange. There's a tweed coat of theirs at a consignment shop that I'm thinking of getting.

    Hi all, I started wearing my 5epxSF's on Friday and I think they're great so far. I love the fit everywhere, but the waist is about 1/2-1inch too big on me and I was wondering what I should do to shrink it down just a little bit, because I don't want the waist to be really tight. Any suggestions? Hot soak? If so, how long should I soak/ what temperature should I soak at to shrink them? Thank you for all of your help in advance.

    you could do a hot soak...but, you'll lose the starch...or you could do a cold soak and and bake them in the dryer (inside-out, of course)...

    there are pro's and cons to all methods...but, here's the biggest con for you...no matter what you do, i don't think that waist is gonna shrink too much or for very long...

    i say learn to live with using a belt...especially since you love the fit everywhere else

    Can anybody tell me if Steven Alan shirts fit differently? I know they have a reverse seam and non reverse seam. Wondering if one fits slimmer then the other. I remember I was in nyc and i tried one on and it seem to pull on the chest when I button up to the second from the top. Any help be great as I would like to order from a sight and not sure if there is a difference. Thank you.

    What does the "break" refer to in regard to pants fit/measurements?

    Thanks!
