    Looking for a Navy Blazer. Kind of liking the brass(?) buttons on this BoO one, but I think it might be a tad too small for me. Anyone got any other suggestions? Doesn't have to have those kind of buttons either. ~400-500 price range, maybe more if I really like it

    why not go with thick as thieves for 150. theyll do the pants separate, no need to buy a whole suit.

    As I mentioned earlier, I'd definitely check out Epaulet for office-appropriate pants. That's probably where I'd go if I wore pants.

    Levi's keeps sending me 20% off credits, and I'm toying with the idea of using one of them on the MIUSA selvage trucker jacket.

    Disadvantages:

    - I already have a Levi's selvage trucker jacket, although that one is the MIC model.
    - I already wear jeans every day, so I'd have a total Canadian tuxedo looking going on, which would probably look kinda bad until my jeans show a little more wear.

    Advantages:

    - I don't currently own anything made with White Oak Cone Mills denim.
    - This jacket is cooler than the one I currently own.
    - The MIUSA model doesn't have side pockets (just chest pockets), so it should have a cleaner, trimmer silhouette.

    Jacket is this:

    - I don't currently own anything with Swarovski crystals bedazzled on it.

    I came to this board because I was interested in raw denim. (0) I own more raw selvage denim - almost all of it Japanese - than I care to enumerate, but I don't have anything American.

    I should've posted this in superdenim. They'd understand. :confused:

    Didn't somebody just post in this thread about a bedazzled shirt or something?

    Wow, I've never seen someone multiple cuff on a jacket....looks like shit.

    I'd say pass....how often do you wear the canadian tuxedo? Now you need another one?

    I'm not sure I like the jacket without the side pockets. Seems, I dunno, unfinished. Maybe I'd feel different seeing it in person. Oh, and if you want something because it's Cone denim then get it. Some people collect oil cans, some people collect denim. It's your cash.

    Denim jackets are pretty much impossible to pull off unless you're the marlboro man.

    I would expect such narrow-mindedness, coming from a Norwegian.

    Thanks man, that's probably what I'll end up doing. I hate waiting for clothes but because they don't carry these instore, ordering them seems like my only option.



    Great. Will look there as well.


    I've got a pair of bowery cotton urban slim fit pants as well and I really like their slimness. Have you ever bought any pants from Epaulet?
