    I have always hated short sleeve shirts, rather buy long-sleeve and do the roll-up. Never once seen a guy wearing a short-sleeve that didnt like dorky.

    Same...but I'm going to give it a go.

    Dunno, I think the main problem with short-sleeve shirts is when they have huge arm openings that make your arms look like toothpicks. If it's reasonably fitted, a short-sleeve shirt can look fine, and it's sometimes more practical than a long-sleeve shirt in warmer weather.

    Yeah you are right...I have quite big biceps so I thought this would help pull it off. It's the match stick arms that make it look ridiculous. Looking for a pair of the fatigue shorts in chambray now if anyone has/sees any.

    thought you had a custom ARSIX hanger for a hot second

    only should buy if your name is synthese

    Should I or shouldn't I buy custom ARSix hangers

    The thing that holds me back from purchasing the DBSS vest is that I can't imagine wearing it much except with my Geller denim trench. Not sure I can handle having something in the wardrobe that's that limited in scope.

    cool piece but I agree, can't really see you working it in with what we've seen of your wardrobe.

    NC do make some nice stuff, but just because it is NC doesnt make it nice. I dont like them at all. They look exactly like regular safety wear, but if that is your thing then go for them.

    I'm on the fence between going wider leg for trousers, or going slim, like Epaulet Rivet chinos. The leg opening just seems so tiny on them, though.

    Has anybody here had any experience with the Arc'teryx Veilance brand? Would you recommend their products? Saw this on B&S and was real interested:

    I've basically pulled the trigger on this blue suede TOJ bomber... [​IMG] [​IMG] I'm thinking summer night staple, since it doesn't get that warm in Vancouver. Any other alternatives I should consider at the pricepoint? ~$525/710 if the ToJ thread is right about pricing.

    I'm in the mood to blow some money on a new pair of sneakers.
    Toss up between CP Achilles, MMMs, or Lanvins (in navy).

    I feel like the CPs would be the easiest to wear as an everyday summer shoe. The only thing keeping me from copping them is that I already have a pair of the black cap toe lows that have been my go-to sneaker for a couple months now and I kind of want to change it up.

    The MMMs I'm very much on the edge about because of the color, and while I've been wanting to cop a pair of Lanvins for a while now I think they'd be more of a special occasion sneaker than an everyday sneaker, which is what I'm looking for.

    I agree that Lanvins are too much of a special occasion sneaker, especially with the patent leather. I'd go CPs because you can't have too many pairs of CPs, plus the others are captoe so there is some difference. Not a big fan of the all white MMMs.
