    Agreed re: Americana. So what's the NEXT BIG THING (i.e. the next supremely effective mainstream marketing gimmick)? Luxe lounge/gym wear? In two years will Banana Republic be selling formal sweatpants?

    I think you can always remove the 'Americana/workwear visage' from of flannel, or denim, or a chore coat, if you style it creatively. nothing wrong with a good flannel or plaid

    I guess its the lifestyle+clothing style matching that matters the most.
    This guy I know has been wearing Flannel + Jeans + Dayton since he was a college student and now he is a college professor. Still wears the same and looks comfortable.
    On the other hand, some kids who have never touched mud in their life before would buy Red Wing or whatnot workboots and throw them out in a month because they felt uncomfortable and clunky.

    trying to be stylish when weather + climate control is that extreme is hard, but basically, you can:

    -half tights (bike shorts) or full tights + full long john heat techs (two layers) under trousers
    -one or two longsleeve heat techs (neutral colors) under a longsleeve buttonup shirt, tie if you dont want to show the top of your undershirt, knit over that if you want. Go into bathroom and remove any unneeded layers at office if need be. Inconvenient but most protective.
    - beanie is key, wool socks, about all you can do.

    Ha! Been trying to figure out your user name for days, it sounds so familiar...

    It's from Portrait of the Artist..., right? The end of the first section, right when the book stops to suck and turns really good...?

    :satisfied:

    i dont wear V necks under buttonups because Uniqlo V necks are pretty deep, you can see a pretty big outline. Only ever wear crewnecks under a buttonup, and wear a tie. I wear V necks by themselves, including heat tech in winter, though.

    Ding ding ding! That's my favorite book, and that sentence is one of my favorite sentences.

    What happened to your old avatar with Jean Pierre Leaud? I always liked it. He's one of my favorite actors.

    Need to cop some heat tech things it looks like. I could also do the American thing and gain 10 pounds of solid fat to provide some insulation, but I think I'd hate myself too much for that. Hah.

    Haha, nice...if you're the kind to have favorite sentences, we'll get along well. :fistbump:

    I had to put my old avatar on hiatus; couldn't stand the way the site was stretching out Claude Jade like that. O_O

    Same here. I already got my Mr. Porter package yesterday.... unfortunately the a.p.c. boots I ordered were too small :fu:


    edit- just got my order from the corner and as someone else said box is enormous, I mean they could've used a box 1/3 the size and it still would've been more than big enough

    :slayer: The Raf is a perfect fit, so hyped

    edit - its super slim fit, so unless you have a big drop you should size up
