    How heavy is "Woolen Flannel"

    There is a pair of dress pants I am eyeing that are Woolen Flannel, are these most likely going to be heavy material? and pretty much winter only?

    It's heavy. You could still wear them on those cold spring days though.

    When you wear a sweater over a collar shirt, as in leaving the collars visible under the sweater, do you do the same for the sleeves? Are you supposed to hide the sleeves? or expose them?

    Personal preference. I like to leave a little bit of cuff showing, a la a suit jacket or sport coat.

    I'm sure there's a thread about this but humor me: I have a new pair of raw Lees and I got them tight thinking they would stretch. The waist is stretching out fine but they're scratching and bruising my inner thighs where the low-slung crotch rubs when I walk. I want to soak them so they'd get softer but I don't really want them to shrink as they're already a bit too tight. I'm really too old for this...
    Cold soak them for awhile, let them hang dry half way (to get most the water out), then wear them damp until dry. Walk to the store or something while they're a bit damp and they won't shrink and possibly stretch a bit more for you noob [​IMG]

    Are these the 101z's? I used to have that problem, it turned out that they weren't stretching because I was wearing them with my belt. You didn't say anything about a belt, but just to rule it out I remind you to wear them without a belt and push them lower on your hips.

    I will definitely try this but I think I'll stay indoors while they're still damp. Lest I literally freeze my ass.
    Yes, I feel like a noob.[​IMG]

    No, these aren't the 101Z's. These are the Ace and the fabric is much heavier on this model and they're not stretching very much. I actually had to give up the 101Z's after I washed them. I could hardly close them anymore after that and didn't feel like looking like some left-over from the last gay pride parade.[​IMG]

    I looked but couldn't really find anything concrete: what exactly do the LVC 1947 501xx fit like? Measurements would be great. Also, how does the front and back rise compare to, say, 5EP LDB?

    You could also try a spray bottle with some water in it if you don't want to soak the whole pair of jeans. They'll stretch where you spray them.

    I need new jeans. My RB11s are perfect in every way (cut, color, stiffness, fade-resistance) but I don't want another pair of the same denim. They can be raw or rinse. Suggestions?

    EDIT: I should've posted this in that jeans thread. Not too late!

    my peacoat (inapt tight fit peacoat), whenever i wear it it leaves lots of black fuzz all over the place...

    is this because the coat is not the greatest quality, (ie not 100% 'natural fibers')

    or is it because it isn't lined

    will most peacoats do this?

    I am really frustrated with this coat after using it all winter and i just felt like the fuzz problem would go away in time, but it never did.

    THOUGHTS?

    I posted this in the hickeystyle.com thread as well, but felt it might get a responce quicker here. My question is:

    I was looking at a long sleeve button up shirt with a 2 button collar on hickeystyle.com and it said "white griffin logo on back upper left". How big of a logo is this? is it lacoste size or like Juicy Couture size? There are no pictures of the back of these shirts.

    The griffin logo, in my opinion, is not that big nor conspicuous. I have a pink striped shirt with the same logo, and one would pretty much have to scan the arm to find it exactly. If there is more color contrast, it might be a bit more conspicuous, but nothing close to Lacoste.

    Your's isn't lined? Mine was lined and kept warm and no fuzzies. Mine is the "admiral" model with the brass buttons though. That sucks, but i remember getting fuzzies when trying on a sterlingwear pcoat at the surplus store awhile back.
