    How easy would it be for a competent tailor to make a faux fly a functioning one with zipper/buttons? Just took delivery of a pair of pants and the store's description did not mention the mock fly, but I like the pants otherwise.

    Hmmm... hard to say, isn't it. I suppose that you still have time to pick up something from Eastdane, particularly if you have Amazon Prime.

    These CP x Robert Gellers are the way to go if that is your size:
    https://www.eastdane.com/common-pro...1/1519233473.htm?folderID=19217&colorId=12688

    Otherwise, Loake are always a solid value:

    Spoiler alert!!!! I wanted to write about all of the great SF and NMWA people and experiences but it seemed a little indulgent after that other mega post of mine. Needless to say this year brought even more fun and awesome clothing friends than any previous one.

    I've been real tempted to try some chelseas, as I like the slip on slip off nature. But I've got a pretty blocky build and wear straight fit pants (levis 501) with a 7.5"ish leg opening. I've mostly seen chelseas look good with a cut that tapers itself down to the ankles.

    @Parker has worn chelseas with bell bottoms and made it look pretty cool. So have the Beatles and any number or 70s rockstars. The trick with chelseas is that you have to commit heavily to the length of the pant hem, either with cowboy style stacking, or with a clean, very short, break. Anything in between looks like you compromised.

    fyi the geller x CPs have a wide ankle opening so they're actually really well-suited for straight leg jeans

    Anyone have a recommendation for ultra-warm wool baselayers?

    I like and wear Smartwool, but am curious what else is out there. Have tried Terramar and Icebreakers.

    a friend of mine was just praising the Patagonia "thermal weight" baselayers. super light but warm.

    edit: I guess those are not wool. sorry!

    I have been using the Satoro bottoms from Arcteryx for the last month or two and I have liked them so far. It is a 81% merino, 12 nylon, 7 spandex blend. I got it on sale too which helped my decision. My legs have never felt cold in them and also never too warm in them ranging from temperatures of high 20's outside to indoor high 60's. I have tried on the Woolpower ones and they felt really nice, but they are are blend as well. The terry knit interior on the inside feels very nice. I have used Smartwool in the past for bottoms, but it seems they don't make them like they used to make them. I had one Smartwool pair for 4 or 5 years, before they ripped and I needed to replace. The last Smartwool ones I got ripped during the 1st winter I was using them. Arcteryx justifies the blend by saying the nylon add durability so that also factored in my decision.

    Yea, I hear ibex is the best. I like how their sleeves are raglan which makes more sense for me for baselayer. I remember when some videos of Patagonia's wool supplier leaked by PETA and it was pretty harrowing. They dropped the supplier but still made me think twice about checking where the wool is from.

    Isaora has baselayer merino wool for a good price too btw. The fits might be popular here too. They did not answer my email about spruce of wool though.

    Booked a last minute trip with my fiancee to Arizona, and we'll be there next Wednesday - Sunday

    Soliciting ideas for what to do while we're there

    It'll be her first time out there, and her first time in the desert or anything like that. (she grew up between the Scottish countryside, London, and Japan, so she is really excited to see some new landscapes different from the Northeast US). It'll also be my first time in Arizona with the exception of going to the Grand Canyon from Vegas once, but I would go there again in a second.

    I've rented an AWD car (A4) with no mileage limitations so I'm eager to hit the road as well and see something different, as well as just drive some nice roads if there are any. We're flying in and out of Phoenix but plan to stay a few nights elsewhere as well.

    We're interested in seeing some good scenery, driving on nice roads, going on hikes that can be done in a morning/afternoon with no specialized equipment (although thinking about doing a mountain bike trail if there is a way to rent bikes), going to good museums, seeing anything weird or distinctly American or regional, and maybe a little shopping (vintage or locally made, I guess).


    Will definitely be doing a few things in Phoenix/Scottsdale like the Heard Museum and Taliesin West (FLW house), Botanical Garden, L Ron Hubbard House, but are eager for any recommendations for hikes or sightseeing. Also will be driving to Tuscon to see the airplane boneyard and will likely make a stop along the way to check out something campy like an ostrich farm. Will also definitely go up to Arcosanti, north of Phoenix.

    We've just started planning but what else should we do or keep a look out for?

    Sedona? Probably. Helicopter to the Grand Canyon? Definitely. Eat Sonoran hot dogs? Hell yes.
