    Does anybody know whether or not two-finger rings can be regarded as "brass knuckles"?
    I was thinking of making myself some of these:

    in my university's machine shop using a CNC mill, since I can get 1/8" aluminum or stainless steel pretty cheap. Problem is, brass knuckles are illegal in MA, and I don't know whether rings like these are legally regarded as such.

    Also, would anybody be interested in a ring like this? I can make them for less than half of what S2A costs.

    I think you can pull it off, it's just that everyone who wears them wears them as part of a summer in the south/nantucket uniform

    So WSJ did a article on the cost of designer premium denim & it's worth reading. To break it down - I know most of you know about these ludicrous mark-ups & buy from brands just for the name, but this is just crazy - a pair of True Religion signature Fall jeans (called the "Phantoms") retail for 300+ and cost the maker $50 (materials + labour) to produce!

    I see guys wearing OCBD's in the summer... isn't it a really thick warm fabric? I've got a bunch but can't seem to fathom wearing one in the summer heat, even open and rolled sleeves. are there different weights or something? am I overthinking this?

    I do it all the time if I need something with a collar during the summer, no big deal (unless it's stupid hot out, which it has been lately in Ontario, these days its shorts and a tee all day every day).

    Sigh. Just read the 7FAM thread over in MC. The difference between MC and SW&D is that MC sometimes seem proud of their ignorance and philistinism.

    I wear True Religion, Seven and Rock & Republic.

    Things that these brands have over your regulular Lee, Levi's, Hang Ten, Uniqlo:

    - Cut
    - Better denim
    - Higher quality stitching. Especially the hem lines
    - Leather decoration
    - Made in USA


    First and last items make it more expensive. The other one's are arguable.




    This makes no damn sense. Selvedge does not necessarily equate to quality.

    I have two or three pairs of 7FAM because they're the most comfortable jeans I own to this date. And I own about 50 pairs of jeans ranging from $100-$1,200. They are usually my go to jeans when I want a comfortable day out.
