    Really not feeling either of those, and especially not at those price points--there are definitely better finds out there...then again, I have no idea what you look like

    What are the better finds? I know nothing about hats. I've worn the Columbia survivor things a few summers and I'm tired of that kind of thing. Looking for something a little classier and versatile. And I'm too lazy to post a pic, but I'm an old white guy. I'm told I kind of look like a thinner Tommy Lee Jones (the actor). http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedi...myleejones.jpg

    Thanks. Yeh, actually I'm liking the looks of some Fedoras now. More my style, I think.

    Where are you picking up doma stuff?

    To continue the running obvious joke: "Or do i just have to wait to look at the image location of the forthcoming picture?" (had to do it before someone else made it)

    But seriously, i like some of the damir doma stuff i've seen although i know it's too much $$ for me, probably even on sale.

    I actually didn't pick it up, it's on its way to me from an old friend of mine in europe.

    The layered ones with or without contrast pockets? I liked the pics of them that i've seen. Could probably work well with the right outfit.

    I'm considering getting a pair of RM Williams. I've considered it before but now I'm heavily considering it which means that I'll be ordering them as soon as I get paid.

    I like the layered shorts; but, a lot of the tops are not so nice in person.

    Baron, that's nice. I like that there's no distressing and also that the detailing is that of a normal shirt and not a western shirt. If there was a small available I'd consider getting it. Is it selvage?

    The fact that it's styled like a regular shirt and not a western or work shirt with the two button pockets is what drew me in. I actually want to find a nice source of chambray and have Kent Wang make me a dress shirt or two. Iammatt has some cool chambray shirts from his bespoke shirtmaker in Naples - I'd love to have something like that.

    Baron, grey chambray shirt looks good. Could I get a closeup photo of the material? I ordered the EG gray chambray from Gary and wanted to compare.

    I have a closeup pic on my work computer. I'll try to post it on Monday.

    So I'm thinking about buying a Stetson hat on Zappos. I need a good hat because my haircut is a short buzzcut, and I don't like going out in the sun without some kind of cover.

    They range from around 70 to 180 bucks and more. Worth it? Anybody else into Stetsons or hats in general? I'm looking at the Weekender perhaps. I'll try to post some image links.


    I have two Stetsons - one for winter and one for summer. The Stetson "Open Road," the signature hat of both Harry Truman and LBJ. I bought one on a road trip years ago and wore it during the trip then ended up selling it to a vintage store. I regretted selling it for years then found the felt hat on ebay last year (apparently they're highly sought there). I just got the straw on yesterday for summer.

    Yea, the shorts were the only things that stood out to me that i saw on seven, but obviously haven't seen em' in person. Just one of those brands i noticed in the past year that i kinda enjoy, like some of the petrov and ute stuff i've seen. I still really really want that khaki ute ploier trench i saw for f/w08 but there's no point while i live down south of even bothering.
