    Such derp. Might have ruined a 700 doll hair Andy sweater. Thought it was cotton all along but has fair bit rayon in it - popped in wash on cold cold/delicate cycle and it shrank like crazy :(.

    Spent some time stretching out the wet thing. Would hate to gift it away :(

    I have three pairs of Uniqlo jeans in different cuts and sizes and I think I hate the fit on all of them.

    Idk how cold that is but it was -16 a little while back and I just added down jacket and heat tech leggings to that and was good.

    Just meant that a nice thick pair of sweatpants and warn fashion sweater does both :)

    I'm a big baby when it comes to cold weather :)
    Blame it on growing up on the west coast. I read all the reviews on the Patagonia website saying like "I wore this fleece in zero degrees with wind" and I'm sitting here at like 40 degrees and sunny, freezing cold

    I like not all one thing or another too. doing just one kind of fit all the time isn't appealing

    also don't care for uniqlos jeans

    Levi's > rest

    (I particularly like the Levi's Made and Crafted line.)

    Took my so long to realize this.

    Although, I've yet to try Lemaire denim.

    My favorite jeans are old Ralph Lauren black label. More like RRL than current black label

    I do think skinny menswear will be around a while longer just because menswear moves pretty slowly, but it does seem like a bigger variety is popping up again. Last time I was in Club Monaco, which is obviously pretty mainstream, they had pleated carrot fit pants. I see a lot of guys in oversized drop shoulder coats in NYC and big sweatshirts. I think things are moving slowly toward a different mix. Bound to happen eventually.

    I posted an oversized drop shoulder fit a while back (shown below) and the forum powershit on it. I think you have to be a rail to pull it off.

    broad shoulders and lean def makes the oversized/drapey thing work better. Ive been doing more of it this winter and feel like its worked better when Ive leaned out

    I got a pair of black straight cuts back in 2009 that I really loved, but never quite attained that satisfaction with Uniqlo denim again. A grey pair of the tapered fit the following summer worked well for a while, but the low rise and my cannon ass proved to be poorly paired. From there, it seemed like every pair I got just had such a stupid low rise that the rest of the fit became immaterial to me.

    Still living in Levi's 508's these days, even though the rise is somewhat low on those, too.
