    I could be wrong. I know they replaced a fly button for me on another pair for only $8.

    And the do it while you wait convenience is awesome. So glad to save the return trip.

    Where should I go to pick up my next pair of jeans? I’m kinda out of the loop. I have ordered my last few pairs online.

    I’m looking for something with a large selection. Salespeople who know what they’re talking about. I’m also looking for more modern cut type denim - less the workwear vibe.

    I live in Echo Park but I work on Fairfax and I’m willing to go wherever. Thanks.

    Depends on what type of jeans.

    Selvage. Something less workwear inspired. More modern cut

    Barneys has a decent selection, or at least they used to. The salespeople have no idea what they are talking about though. I'm not sure if Scott still works there but that guy knew his jeans. You can get more modern cuts at Self Edge and they do know what they are talking about. RRL on melrose maybe? Some cuts are a bit slimmer and it's just a cool store to check out.

    Any recommendations for a hip, yet classy upscale restaurant in the West Beverly Hills area near Westheimer/UCLA? I'll be doing a business dinner with some advertising folks, so it doesn't need to be buttoned up, but in my experience, the area is too casual. The diners lean toward the healthy side, but are not overly strict.

    (When I'm in LA I usually hit up the sushi joints, such as Mori, Shunji, and Zo, but I think that'd be too sushi-focused for this sort of group.)

    Westheimer? Personally I would go to Cut or Spago a little east of there.

    Jet’s suggestions are solid but I’d also throw in Hinoki and the Bird in Century City if you’re going for “hip”. People also seem to like Craft in Century, although every meal I’ve had there has been fine-but-not-great.

    The PTO Holiday Market is Sunday on MacArthur Park. Would love to have some StyleForum folks stop by. Buy something and tell me you're from SF and I'll give you a free Put This On DVD. We'll have tons of vintage stuff of all kinds, a super deal on our pocket squares, a lot of Japanese magazines and beautiful fashion books, absolutely gobs of cufflinks and whatnots.
