    Good soba. It made the nytimes top 10 list for best inexpensive restaurants 2011. It can be a bit of a wait, go during off hours.

    2012 resolution is to eat more, shop less.

    I touched upon this in a previous post somewhere, but the actual age of MC'ers is not as high as one thinks, there's a glitch (understatement) in the American style matrix, how these people find their way to styleforum, etc, etc. MC and SW+D guys are roughly the same age, I think.
    Fuck, I'm 30, and I'd never wear half of the stuff they talk about in MC. Maybe in 40 years...

    I always forget that MC exists. I think that sw&d has a lot of creative types, whereas MC seems to attract a very analytical mindset (you're showing 1/4" too much cuff you heathen!)

    also, to follow up what impolyt said... a surprisingly large amount of MC posters are quite young (younger than most of the sw&d guys)... there's plenty of MC posters who are 22 or younger

    maybe they just start their career?
    I think the MC posters who has good fit pics are mostly over 30. But here people with good fit are 20 ish(mostly).

    kind of.... but that's the way guys outside of the US tend to think about clothes maybe, whereas styleforum's constant new user base is US-centric, inherently misguided/unguided to begin with, and the general attitude of the only physical sources of fashion information for a lot of these guys, GQ/Esquire magazines, etc, push formal clothes, and if casual, a very watered down Euro-luxury thing that is best suited to 50 year olds whose wives dress them. It says nothing about the fact that these guys are actually 18 or something, then go online, google for a 'forum about men's style' or a 'style forum' and then end up here, click on the first forum they see called 'Men's Clothing' - you see where this leads....

    this is a serious post that showed up on my facebook today..

    how to dress like a dandy
    shoes:
    at least one pair of sperry topsiders or, if you wanna be more legit, sebago docksidespreferably tan or brown
    maybe navy
    you'll need boots, definitely--red wings
    then derbies or saddles
    like the two-tone ones, if you know what i'm talking about
    white bucs, but only spring, EARLY fall

    shirts:
    plaid's ok late fall, early winter, but besides that i'm not a huge fan
    get a lot of solid oxford button-downs
    idk what your price range is, but the best ones are at brooks
    but you can definitely go to gap or some shit
    a LOT of polos
    preferably in lots, lots, lots of colors
    southern tide, despite its rep as kinda poser, really does have some of the best ones
    polo is by far the best
    their interlock is unreal
    brooks is great too, the golden fleece ones
    pocket tees
    go to j.crew, polo ralph lauren, brooks, vineyard vines, any southern store (with exceptions)
    masters shit
    ohhhh, shit
    anything with the masters logo, and if you don't watch the masters, go killyoself

    sweaters:
    argyle is definitely ALWAYS a must-have
    half-zips, too
    the golfier, the better (callaway, titleist, etc)
    patagonia makes a sick buttoned half-zip
    jackets:
    always go mountain hardwear, fratagonia, north face

    shorts:
    9" inseam at the most
    go vineyard vines, polo (of course), fratagonia stand-ups
    anything in pastels
    so green, light yellow, pink, blue, red are all in play
    so's white and khaki, of course

    pants:
    chinos
    nothing but chinos
    jeans are occasionally acceptable
    i wear them more than most gentlemen do, but that's because i always have
    but some people in the south never put on a pair in their lives
    tan, khaki, white, red, light blue, yellow, whatevertons of colors
    bonobos makes an awesome pair of chinos, so does polo
    my favorites, though, are the slim straight from either banana republic or j.crew
    if you need to dress up, or just look fucking sexy, you pair them with...

    blazers:
    seersucker when it's hot
    striped blue and white, red and white, even straight white or grey
    YOU NEED A NAVY ONE, MOTHERFUCKER
    brooks has, by far, the best navy blazer in the fucking world
