    cross country bicycle trip was a failure. my buddy bailed before we got out of washington and my mom said I couldn't go alone (and I didn't really want to o it alone anyways, would have been sketched). so now I'm back home working all summer. I'm also broke as fuck.

    unless you had one of these [​IMG] how did you expect to raise funds riding across the country -- seems like you're better off working, no ?

    ^^regular, carrot fit is the most played out silhouette.

    regular (straight legs) often looks like bootcut
    i think pants with tapered legs look best

    ^^Depends alot on the width and cut, but a slight taper is often a good idea. Thats however not the same as a carrot fit.

    do you think carrot fits are played out in the netherlands because of the popularity of g-star?

    Yea this is what I really want, but the slight drop crotch also makes Topman's carrot fit chinos interesting to me Slim ones are too tight but I think I will try the regular fit ones.

    The day I tried on that Dries bomber I popped into Balenciaga to swoon over that crazy convertible vest thing (navy/black, not the awful orange one). I want it so bad but I have no place for it in my wardrobe.

    did you end up getting this? I know you were debating.

    they have great shows too. one of my new favorite lines.

    Carrot fit or regular fit chinos

    ????


    No disrespect and abundant homo, but aren't you kind of carrot-shaped to begin with? I think I remember you mentioning that you needed some leeway in the hip/thigh area and a decent taper below the knee to match your proportions. I'd assume that pants that follow your silhouette would be more flattering than pants with a bunch of extra material at the ankle.

    Random...uh...style thought? It's amazing how Wire went from being all minimalistic punk on Pink Flag to being the flag bearers for prog rock on 154.

    Also, whoever said "Damn These Vampires" was the only good song on All Eternals Deck (GN?) needs to listen to "Estate Sale Sign" again. Not as amazing, but a worthy submission.

    In conclusion, go Phillies, and I need to drink some bedtime tea and hope I don't wake up with a hangover.
