    You guys just wait. When East Dane can't clear out full size runs of Starks in odd colors at 70% off, you'll know you've hit rock bottom.
    Nah. I have a Naval and a Fisherman (of course). Starks have always reminded me too much of the Banana Republic knits I used to wear prior to joining SF. Can't go back. [​IMG]

    My Iron Rangers are my favorite boots.

    And I own several pairs of boots that fall well into the "baller boot" classification.

    The lightest Ventile is 180 grams per sq meter (6 Oz) while the heaviest is 300 grams (10 Oz).

    The 10Oz(L28) is too heavy for pants. The L27, which is 9 Oz is probably the best option if heavy is preferred.

    @luxrie @dieworkwear
    thanks guys. Guess I should give them a miss then, they sound better suited for spring/summer.

    9oz cotton is reasonably substantial. It's not like 9oz wool.

    @hendrix I'm not looking to have a pair of pants made with a 9oz ventile, just found a couple pairs of pants that seemed to fit what i'm looking for that happened to be made out of ventile, which I have little knowledge of as a fabric. OAMC messaged me back and said it's 220gsm which is like 7oz according to them.

    Really? From the cottons I've handled under 10oz or so, they all felt pretty lightweight and thin.

    One thing I will say is that Ventile is not a particularly breathable fabric.

    I always thought the SNS Fisherman was awesome, remember seeing @nicelynice wearing one zipped up around the neck under a suit or coat with the collar flaying open. Quite cool and elegant. Never understood the Stark...tempted a few times to pick it up because it does seem like a rather casual and robust knit to wear anytime. But one thing I realized is that every time I got on the SF bandwagon, I ended up never being quite satisfied. On the other hand, all the things I discovered on my own I really enjoy wearing a lot.

    Thanks, Yoox!

    On the contrary, I think CM is a little different because what you learn in terms of the various makers is more practical once you find something that is well fitting, both literally and figuratively.




    ^That jumpsuit is pretty cool. The day Lemaire makes one I'll be all over it.

    You would probably be aware, but, have seen people confuse the weight per square meter with the weight per linear meter. Most fabric rolls being 1.5m in width, the difference can be substantial.

    So, 9 Oz per linear meter will be 6OZ per square meter. Sadly, there ain't standardization enough.

    True. Not the best breathable option if waterproofing is not a requirement.

    Oh, right. Brisbane Moss uses per square meter, IIRC, which often causes confusion in the Unfunded Liabilities thread.

    having a crisis over a coat i bought. really beautiful wool/silk rick owens coat that fits great and looks awesome, but it's got that minimal lapel and a strong shoulder (not fall 2010 strong or anything, just structured and sharp). i also passed on this yohji coat a couple months back and now i keep thinking about it, thinking i should've gone for that when i had the chance. the rick coat is very cool looking. maybe too cool with its angular tailoring. the yohji would've been softer, less severe, more relaxed, with a classic, timeless lapel. both are lightweight black long coats that the average 'murican male would probably think look similar. but it's all in the shoulders and the lapels, and i keep wondering which coat better represents me as a human being????

    Depends on which shoulder you got - you're too friendly-looking to be a moody rick kid, I think.

    exactly!

    edit: though to be fair it's a pretty simple coat, which is the only reason i even considered it.
