    Only because of the pictures. It was much easier to see the pin straight line on the chevron versus the back/forth on the herringbone. That's much more subtle on a weave. It makes sense once you can conceputalize how twill/weave has to work. But first you need to understand the difference between chevron and herringbone, THEN you can apply it to weave. So I started with the obvious.

    I dunno. Made sense to me.

    The Chinos are a solid 38W, sorry.

    What size are both of these, seriously, I will wear them together.

    That BB corduroy suit is the bomb too.

    Hey, @Fueco ... What do you call this Patagonia reversible nylon / Sherpa thingy? Also, if the tag says F4, does that mean 2004?

    That is not a stain on the front... it's just my sub-par lighting.

    A VW bus will cost you more than a Ferrari. well, if you want the 23 window safari. the one i designed in my head for spoo was a barn door.

    Fuck you guise, my sofa is uncomfortable, and my floor now has Crayon drawings on it.
