    Question: How do you install boot tip / heel guards in a boot? Are they nailed into the sole?

    i'll give someone here the chance to pick out my next jantzen tailor fabric.

    the shorts going to be a BD collar or a semi spread that i intend to wear primarily with dark denim, specifically my APC ns. i already have a great white shirt from jantzen, now i'm considering something different like a nice light blue but i'm not sold.

    any suggestions for shirt fabric to be worn with denim?

    How come when I measure my waist I have a 33" waist but I know if I bought stuff in my actual waist size it would be too big? for example I wear 28NS, 30 crate routes, and 30 uniqlo and I fit into size 29/30 gap.

    ^ This might be a stupid question, but are you measuring your waist at the point where the waistband of your jeans sit? Based on those sizes, I would expect that your waist measures 30" there.

    ^^since most jeans are oversized with 2", since they are labeled after some imagined "true waist", but are not intended to sit there. so, most 30" jeans will have a waist of 32" (and in many cases more).

    Dude, what are you doing fucking around with anything besides gas station sunglasses? I lose break/so many pairs I could have copped some [insert expensive brand I don't give shit about here], but I would have lost/broke those too.

    Why do people fuck around with expensive watches, they might get scratched?

    Why do people wear $200 tshirts or $2000 suits that might get stains on them or ruined at the dry cleaners?

    Why do people wear $500 shoes and $300 sneakers they know will get dirty (and possibly ruined) from a muddy puddle or a downpour?

    I take care of my sunglasses like I take care of the rest of my things, but my pair broke by a freak (and non-repeatable) accident. I like Ray Bans. Now I'll ask again, where is a good place to get them?

    ^ [edit: in response to Bobo] While that may be true of certain brands, I know for a fact that none of the jeans he listed measure more than 31" in those sizes when new. I know this because I wear those same sizes, and my waist measures exactly 30". If he really has a 33" waist, the waistband would have to measure 34" (1" more) to fit him. Not even his APCs (in size 28) are capable of stretching that much. I would say he's measuring incorrectly somehow.

    Anyone know how this Boo White Button Collar Shirt with Blue/Red Stitch fits compared to their overdyes? Overdye Small was too small for me so should I go with medium?
