    Trickers would be year round, though frankly all I plan on wearing in s/s is chucks/vans.

    I'd go with the Cabourn, in that case. You'll probably get more use out of it in the near term, and unless you want to sit on it until sales come up, it probably makes sense to buy it at the beginning of the season instead of picking it up when you'll only wear it for a couple of months before putting it away until next spring.

    Not that I'm all that crazy about it, but whatever, it meshes with the stuff you wear.

    I mean I would wear the Cabourn year round, just changes what gets layered and worn underneath. The issue is it isn't going anywhere and the minor discount I already get on it (F&F) isn't worth dropping $900, when MTO Trickers are around $700. Also, the Trickers take 10-12 weeks so the sooner they're started the better is my attitude.

    Draw straws. Or order one while you're drunk. That might yield the best results.

    I'd get the Cabourn now, you can get the Tricker's anytime...

    I hear you, boss. These days I only drink on days whose names end in a Y, and I rarely drink before 5 PM except on days whose names start with an S. edit:

    I'm assuming that you already have some cargo shorts and flip-flops to wear with them.

    You just described somebody's regular outfit on here [​IMG]

    Contemplating this, given that there's a good discount going on in Tres Bien. Not sure how often I'd wear it, however, given the less-than-stellar weather in Seattle and the summer rains of Korea.

    It's versatile for casual, and I have to say I love the styling. It stands out so much though it'd definitely a be a one and done thing. You don't want to rock that for too long, people will be like, here comes the guy with the orange jacket again.

    "versatile" is overrated.
