1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Pants look good tegs. Can't see any detail, and i guess RRL is about the detail, but the blurry color looks nice. Don't keep if you won't wear.

    I think I have those same ones, or very similar if not. But I managed to get them for 200 bucks.

    gonna pass on the rrls. the color is nice but they're a size too big in the waist, and I know if I sized down they'd be too tight in the thigh.

    I like the color, but you've just described the fit of every pair of RRL denim I've ever tried on.

    I agree. Beckman is a more versatile shape & color. In contrast to that comment, though, they do look off w/ those pants.

    Cigar look way better. Black looks so awkward in that style for some reason. However, I'm not a huge fan of black boots (gasp).

    2nd pair
    1st looks very generic. 2nd looks more like a boot.


    I missed this :embar:
    But I hope you get my point and how you know? I am saving for a home now. (0)

    I dunno what that is but I don't really like it. Detailing is ugly.

    Haha, I know what you're getting at KJ, but it's that quintessential Cloak look

    Ah, it's cloak? You might be blinded by the brand. My problem with it is that the medieval/military aspects of it (epaulet-looking things, napoleon sleeves) clash with the technical/nylon fabric. And the brass hardware is just ugly.

    I'm with KJ, don't really like the look of it at all. Reminds me of a barbour but with more unecessary hardware.

    I'll admit, was not expecting the backlash to this item, but I certainly can see the points everyone is making. Maybe I am just blinded by the brand as KJ said, though part of me still really likes it for some reason.

    Too bad, that really is a good color. Hate that about the way RRLs fit. Not sure how LA Guy loves the fit so much. Maybe he's getting a different model?


    My take is that the textured and somewhat wrinkly fabric doesn't necessarily jive with the extra-clean look that a hidden placket usually provides.

    Then again, I think hidden plackets were pretty common on workshirts back in the day because you couldn't catch your buttons on whatever you were carrying around.

    Also, it's ASOS, so you can always take advantage of their free two-way shipping. Hell, I just bought a W+H cardigan that I'm 95% sure I'm sending back and a Denham(?) henley that I doubt I'll keep, either.

    edit: Not loving the Cloak jacket, either.

    I think it's pretty awesome but I am boring and predictable.
