    Is there a definitive way to calculate the waist measurement of trousers, when the only size given is in the form of a suit size? I've heard waist size is typically 6" less than the suit size, but is that always the case?
    definitive way? no and trousers are just as vanity sized as jeans if there were a general guideline it'd be size 40 suit has a trouser (could be called size 32/42EU) that measures 34-5" around waist size 38 suit is 32-3" around waist (could be called size 30/40EU) so the 6" less is a good guide, but not always accurate, but is probably close enough to use so that if you had to you could let it out/take it in if it doesnt fit right

    Does anyone see any reason it wouldn't be wise to wash my SC Okinawa's together with my SE button down "black" denim shirt? They are both due for a washing.

    what color belt is more versatile for streetwear...

    brown or black ??


    i don't always think matching a belt to shoes is necessary for streetwear... anyone agree?

    No.

    If your streetwear is more on the pseudo-hipster side get a brown belt. If your streetwear is on the super-hipster side, start with a black belt and you'll need more as you go along.

    Hey. Does anyone know how you're supposed to take care of bridle leather on filson bags? Thanks.

    You don't have to do much, IMO, as letting it age and patina is part of the charm. Cleaning it with saddle soap every once in a while is all you really need.

    I got my bag from Crane's today. The leather is sort of stiff and dry feeling in certain areas. I don't know if the leather is this way at first and it softens up eventually, or perhaps the leather dried out a bit.

    I like the higher v-neck on Splendid Always tees (Zappos, Revolve). Does anyone know of other brands that do this?

    When I first got my Filson bag, the leather was super stiff. Don't worry about it - it will soften up pretty quickly.

    Do these look too old manish to wear with jeans? [​IMG]

    ^ Not old-mannish, just not very easy on the eyes. How about these?

    For something high quality yet easier on the pocket, look at the English makers, when on sale.

    ^ Polo RL has some really decent rubgy shirts, which can be had for (relatively) cheap on eBay. Sizing is all over the place though, so make sure to ask for measurements.
