    anyone got leads on flared jeans for men, not quite bell bottom status, slim with some stretch? like the uniqlo slim tapered up top but you know not tapered

    levis standard bootcut jeans are gross frat status

    preferably somewhere with a good return policy or a physical store in LA in case this experiment is a horrible misdeed

    imo, absolute best tees are nonnative pocket tees they put out every season in slightly different fabric. so freakin hard to get tho, they sell out almost immediately in japan and the ones they sell stateside is a little too much like maas and stacks just refuses to put them on sale for some reason.

    have to treat tees like button down shirts and go into the $70-100 range and not think they are hanes and should be $3 each and think going to AA or Everalne or Uniqlo at $15 is a big step up. But also not needed to go nutso into the $400-$500 range.

    It was me, but I was wearing the denim shirt tied with a knot by my hips. You should have come and said hello man. You were the dude with the porn moustache and pink sunglasses right?

    How do measured hats translate? Like a size 58 would be what, Is it cm and you measure your actual head?

    Yep, just take a measure-tape and measure where you think the hat would fit (just a bit over the ears usually).

    usually i measure a few inches above my ears, because the tiny hat look is in vogue right now. i suggest you do the same.

    OK, so I guess my next question is how much does steaming shrink it? If it's like 4cm big is steaming a viable option?
    I feel like these questions are better asked by telegraph.

    If it's wool or cotton steaming is pretty much guaranteed to shrink it somewhat but not sure if we're talking 4 cm or more like 1-2. (I know there's someone here who has tried it, possibly @Lorcan7 ?)
    Based on your 2 post I have to add though that I highly doubt your head measures 54 cm since that would be a womens sz small or mens x-small (s=56, m=58, l=60)

    Yeah the one im looking at is 61. I get 59 when I measure which I guess would probably fit fine though after seeing your post (l=60). Nonnative laborer in rabbit which looks like a felted wool so I figured it would shrink. I always thought nonnatives were letter sized though.
