Still continuously wearing sportcoats with jeans.

because i'm kinda cheap i haven't updated the jeans i wear most of the time in a while. my go-to pair are slim fit selvedge jeans from american eagle in a mid wash that i got for… $29, i wanna say? my fave pair are Rugby RL's from 6 years ago in a dark wash that i rarely wear bc i don't want them to fade too much, at least until i can find another pair that fit the same (thinking the 3sixteen sl-100x might be the ticket and at some point i just might break down and get a pair. or if @brillopad ever tells me the knee measurement on his jeans, maybe those).

i did splurge on a pair of Sid's natural denim (which to be honest, are almost as tapered as the AE's. just a half inch more in circumference at the hem maybe).

anyway, here's a couple of posed pics from yesterday with the AE's.

I'll tell you the knee measurement of the jeans if you tell me where you got that Drake's scarf! I've been looking for that one for years.

easy: Coachman Clothiers in Knoxville. They went out of business this spring/summer, and were liquidating all their stock. I got it for like $60.
There's a reasonably similar one this season in tan, though. different fabric make up but it's mughal print in tan (just with some blues and greens in there, too): https://www.drakes.com/usa/accessories/scarves/beige-mughal-hunter-print-scarf

If you like the natural denim from Sid, their denim fits the same.

i do like them. i wish the hem were a tad wider though. for the natural color i think it's fine but would want a bit more width on dark denim.
if only @brillopad were around to tell me his knee measurement.

Size up and have the waist taken in. It’s free if I’m their shop.
