Thanks! Not fond of the RMC shirt as I don't like the symmetrical bandana pattern. Also not into the cross like pattern on the front of the shirt.

You have that Sun Surf Duke shirt, right? How do you like it? I think @UrbanComposition also has it.
I’m enjoying it - open over a tee, closed by itself, under a sweater with points exposed.

Peter’s fits him longer than mine fits me. I’m 6’3” and had to swap for an XL to get proper fit in the shoulders and enough length. I haven’t (hand-) washed it yet, so not sure on shrinkage, but it’s rayon, so I expect some amount.

I love my feit chelseas. I have 2 pairs
I have a pair of their sandals, which I dig. For those, because they're unisex, the sizing was S-XXL and I had to go XXL. But this doesn't map to regular Feit sizing, I don' think. I think you answered this previously, but how did you size?

I went TTS, all their boots come with an additional leather insole and a cork insole to help with sizing. I wear it with the additional Buffalo insole. Some people find that sole to be slippery but I don’t. So if you find it a lil big or small, you can add/remove insoles as you like.

i like the thicker chunkier look of the feit Chelseas. It’s more workweary than rocker which I like.

It is comical, she will often wear things knowing I will disprove just to see if I react. The pens and stationary thing is interesting, my girl is obsessed with those
My SO is also super into arts and crafts. But on the clothing front, more about comfort these days except when we go out for a date.

Someone mentioned PI earlier in response to your question, which is great. Also PF. And GV.

I personally love vintage ralph stuff on ebay. Inexpensive, and as long as you don't get something with women's bodies, pretty good.

Bump. Anyone?? I mean, this is SF after all...
There's been some good recs so far, but more to check out if nothing is catching your eye:

Monitaly makes great camp collar shirts, though their prints usually skew more "retro" or vintage inspired than modern.
Dashiel Brahmann
Lemaire always makes some cool ones if you want to spend $$$.
Check Steven Alan, they usually do a couple house brand versions every year and carry other brands too.
Battenwear
Pilgrim Surf + Supply

Love that shirt. One of my favorites from last year. Also got the Scott Fraser leopard print in terry cloth. Wearing it right now, actually.

Hey gang, just a heads up that I made a comparison thread of the Heschung Thuya VS the Paraboot Michael. I feel like this is brought up a ton, but no one has conclusively addressed this until now.

Please shit post here:

Usually when we go out on a date my SO will ask me to pick out their outfit. Which is always fun, I think womenswear can get a lot more playful

Agree. I enjoy helping my wife out, but one must tread carefully. I’m lucky she’s pretty waify, which makes it easy as most designer-ish stuff fits her very well. I coaxed her into a slightly subdued Anita Pallenburg/Keef look for a date last night and damn...

I love denim, but I have realized that 16oz is the heaviest I can go and even then I still find myself wishing it was lighter. I don't like how stuff in that range feels. They are probably gonna be tanks though.
