    Are they soaked/washed yet? They should shrink up when you do that.

    Na, being a short dude, if you have a 30" inseam and try to pinroll 6", it's going to look funny. In my experience with pinrolling jeans to go with my sneakers, I do max 3 rolls on a 32 inseam to sit right on my ankle.

    Hey, has anybody heard from @hbkshin I paid him like 30 days ago for something and haven't received it or heard back from him. I know he was having some issues, I sure hope he is okay.

    No, not really. Unless your jeans are super light then you can roll them up without being too bulky. but I would say any jeans over 15 oz. it's gonna be impossible unless your inseam have been shortened. You should see what happens when I rolled up my 20 oz Oni 527OR!

    hello old friends. back with a random question. feel free to ignore if you'd like:

    if i want a versatile winter jacket that wouldn't look out of place at the bar nor at work (business/business casual - no tie/jacket), where am i looking?

    caveat: OTHER than a peacoat or duffle on a budget of $300.

    bonus points for specific brands

    Where do you live again? Is it NY? (meaning: how cold is it going to get? winter in minnesota is different from winter in oklahoma)

    I'd consider a Barbour. Versatile with zip in liner. Never fails me here in New England

    Can you blame him?


    Thrift fit (XPOST FROM WAYWRN)

    So I put this fit up in WAYWRN and then realized that literally every piece I was wearing was true thrifted by yours truly. That doesn't usually happen. Most of the time I've got an ethrift or a trade or something in there somewhere.
