    Does anyone here have any experiences with shoes like pottery? Want to pick up some canvas shoes for summer so might give these a shot.

    Does anybody know how to size on Nike Free Mercurial Superfly? I want to buy a pair, but they're about .5 bigger than I'd normally cop, and if they run big anyways that would be good info to have

    I like them, fwiw. The look and feel are different from Converse (which I also occasionally wear, and wore for years), and the materials *are* better.

    Is there a relatively recent Chicago (the city) thread? GF and I were there last spring, and are going again next month, and I was wondering if there is anything we should do. We're going Wednesday and coming back Saturday afternoon (3 nights), so we have Longman & Eagle, Eataly, and pizza on the list for lunch, and Gibson's, Intro, and dinner/food in Wrigleyville after a Cubs game for dinner. Anything we shouldn't miss in late May?

    Also, any good whiskey bars and/or cocktail bars? And anywhere to smoke a cigar in the city? We're staying at the Raffaelo if that matters (so Drumbar is on the list at some point), but a good bourbon bar or cocktail/cigar bar rec in the city (and preferably not too far away) would be great.

    Thanks!

    Just a few restaurant suggestions off the top of my head: Tango Sur (Argentine steakhouse), Crisp (Korean), Athenian Room (Mediterranean), DMK Burger Bar, Fish Bar, Kuma's Corner

    Places to grab a drink: The Barrelhouse Flat - and if you're into really Dive-y bars go next door to Rose's Lounge, The Bedford.

    Enjoy your time there, I love that city!

    If you like jazz, The Green Mill is a great bar/ music venue.

    Also, after the Cubs game you're probably going to want to get the fuck out of wrigleyville and go elsewhere for food

    Eataly is a good call. Shake Shack's across the street if you're into that sort of thing

    These look good...

    I sent them my measurements and they suggested I go with medium...i expected large or XL, as i am 185 pounds and wear large in uniqlo....

    I think if I follow their suggestion I may be wearing a skin-tight tshirt. Would not post fit pic of that here.

    hmm

    yea that sounds ridiculous, XL is probably right. they have measurements for their shirts though, and I think those are pretty accurate
