I honestly just came here to post that I got these for an amazing price and then saw your post. Been looking at these for over a month but just didn't want to pay the $230-$250 that sellers were asking for them.
glad you got them. I hope they work out for you
I just sold a pair of those
Oh whatever Cigar Indy w/ commando sole!
How did you find out that Dave (distinctive) had those anyway? I didn't see them in B&S.
Away from my computer for the evening and I totally missed out, thanks for the link thou Namor, those were amazing looking. And what a price. Nope not UCD, I finished with school sadly, UCSB and USD. The closest I get are paying the ungodly fees for the Mondavi center. Are you a UCD man?

So a little bit of a side topic - and honestly been discussed here before - but I find it interesting. I strolled into a Ralph Lauren store and then a J Crew store. RL Black Label has a bunch of stuff that looks like Belstaff. I also saw a PRL jacket on ebay that was a dead ringer for a Barbour motorcycle-style jacket I have.
Then in J Crew. everything looks like a poor man's RRL, their plaid and flannel shirts, especially. You could almost go on the RRL website and pick out a flannel or workwear shirt, then find an almost exact copy in J Crew. Except it's not called J Crew - they have this in-house brand called something like "Wallace and Grommet"; well, not really... but the name reminds me of it. At first I thought they were retailing another brand, but turns out it's still them. All of the new flannels are branded this way. So it made me think of Ralph Lauren with PRL, RLPL, RLBL, and RRL (not to mention the sub-brands like the Polo Sportsman thing). So even with the branding thing, J Crew seems to be following along - at a lower price point, of course.
BTW.. I have a pair of the wool officer pants that RKD is wearing in 34 that I'll be selling soon. I got them a while ago off ebay, but have lost weight, so they are too big. Let me know if you're interested.
What's the best (or a few of the best) Denim tailor...?
And places that will accept mail-ins. Probably New York or LA I'm guessing.
Need to get some hems chainstitched and would like to taper the legs a little more.
For chain stitching I've used Blue in Green. It cost $30 and took 5 minutes. I would have thought you could mail them denim but you had better call and find out. For tapering I've always used my local tailor (The Tailoring Room) on the LES. The dude in there knows what he's doing and has never butchered any of my stuff. You could also try something like this or this.
K. Thanks for the info. I'll see if they take mail-ins....
