    well, kinda, mercury has always mesmerized me, since childhood. also im in college and my areas of focus being sustainable design, environmental politics, and such im aware of the implications this object, and that itd be a bit hypocritical of me to wear one. still, this stuff is so cool.

    Anyone know what the sizing on the April 77 Costello's is like? I want to know if I should size down or just stick with my regular waist size for a nice slim fit.

    This is going to be a weird question, but my best fitting shirt is a small American Eagle vintage fit western shirt. Any idea if I'd wear a small or a medium Hickey? I was concerned with the comparisons in the original thread to J Crew but slightly slimmer because I wear a small in J. Crew as well but its on the trim side already for me and their mediums are pretty blousy. It sucks being right at the cusp for between sizes.

    I think I already know the answer to this but am hoping I can hang on to this jacket. Can a cowhide leather jacket be stretched in the shoulders?

    Peruse their sizing chart (scroll down to "woven shirts"; people here have reported that it's dead on.

    You seem like a small to me BTW.

    I was given a pair of raw Edwin 1502, modeled afet an early Wrangler jean with a zipper. They are a little big (maybe 1/2- 3/4") on me in the waist and 1-1.5 " in length. Any idea how much they will shrink with a cold wash and hang dry?

    Can anyone recommended a place in San Diego for hemming jeans, or maybe a place that I can mail them to?

    Old Navy, Gap and Banana Republic's stuff is basically the same, right? I mean don't they come out of the same factory?

    Construction is a little better as you go up, though not proportionally with the price increase. I used to work at BR, and we can buy everything for 50% off- so never, ever pay full price for that stuff.
