    if you check the sizing link on coverchord, there should be a corresponding cm size to the number size

    also, i have shrunk a hat significantly by dipping it in just boiled water. is kapital boro hat and still the top is a bit wonky. really risky i think and wouldn't bother getting a hat you know is too large...

    Devoa, as Nahneun said, or if you want more "standard" jeans try RRL : http://www.ralphlauren.com/product/index.jsp?productId=11750064

    They do a "slim bootcut" in a variety of washes - if you check SF's Buy and Sell you may be able to find some for much cheaper than retail.

    I love your optimism. Did you ask what happened to the last intern? Last I heard, he was living in the basement of Men's Warehouse, living in a tent constructed of poly-blend suits. That's why you always hear crying whenever you walk into that store.

    How loyal are y'all to good retailers? At what $$$ amount will you simply choose the cheaper option regardless of how good the customer service is? I've got a couple fantastic local stores with staff that (I believe) tolerate my presence pretty well and (maybe) enjoy hanging out and talking clothes with me. I try to buy at these stores whenever possible, but sometimes the difference is $200-300 vs. ordering across the country from another store (with good customer service) or $300-400 vs. ordering from an EU store that doesn't care about anything except whether I've paid them, doesn't answer e-mails, and forgets my orders. Those aren't insubstantial sums of money, and these are businesses, not charities. I feel bad "windowshopping" local stores, and if it's less than $100 difference, it's a no-brainer, but with higher-ticket items.. the price adds up.

    On a side note, I wish Hide-M stocked Layer-0 :)

    I'd say about $250 on a item priced in the $1-1.5K range. That's based on recent experience. However, if a localish retailer is selling something for $300-$400, and the overseas retail is $170 or so... c'mon, I'm not that loyal. I won't showroom though. I'll simply buy the product from overseas.

    On other note, I wish that Guidi would deliver my MTO Guidi 017s (reverse horse, that off white color) to Hide-M already.
