    The St Vrain Trailhead up by Jamestown is an awesome hike / camping spot and is super close to you!

    Nuggets games are fun, I'm not too familiar with their team this year but I went to every laker game when they were in town....And if you mean having a Kegerator in your living room sophomore year, a fridge that only houses a keg and has a tap, and always had a full keg, resulting in me drinking beer with every meal and even when I was just thirsty...I had more beer than water that year...than I may have partaken a little.

    Some people are just more hands-on learners. I don't think it has anything with not putting in the time, but you retain knowledge from reading about it, other's may retain that knowledge by putting their hands on real versions of things and fake versions of things. Seems like a viable alternative.

    I'm done with it, there's a knowledge box I get it, people add to it, everyone gains everyones happy, I have no problems with it, enjoy the box and gain all you can, I feel no need to address this anymore.

    I thought it was womens at first, but I found the identical looking one on ebay for men, but I dont know, no sizing indicator
    Other than inside one of the outer pockets, theres a bunch of numbers with 10R written as one of them

    I know what I was looking at They were selvedge it's the only denim jeans in there now. I preferred the fit of the dunhills better that's all and there Japanese made versus usa and the overall quality was better in my opinion. I also decided to spend my money across the hall when my wife came to get me to show me something she saw on the way back downstairs from the louboutin store instead. I buy alot of stuff retail so it's not a big deal to get what you want for personal stuff. You have to buy what you want and love is the key. I just didn't like the ford's they looked thrown together to suit a current trend. Not sure who made my dunhills either don't care I love them.You can't tell me you don't drop a couple grand a year on pieces you want regardless of price.Go down to Santa Monica place today and buy something you love and don't look at the price tag. You won't regret it I sure as hell dont.

    You can (pretty much) always look at the placket and see which side the buttons are on to determine whether it's women's or men's. In this case, it's women's.
