    I mostly wear workwear-ish stuff, both classic and "fashiony". Stuff like Pendleton, Woolrich, Engineered Garments, Sassafras, Filson, etc. I also wear a lot of Polo stuff (but not actual polo shirts).

    As CM stuff goes I'd love:
    -flannel pants (ideally in muted/"classic" colours, pleated or flat front, no care)
    -corduroy pants (see above, prefer wide wale)
    -Sport coats, especially navy, ideally with a minimally structured or unstructured shoulder that also comes in around the 18.25" width mark
    -dress shirts in staple colours. Classic/"blousy" cut is totally fine since I don't wear them without jackets. Prefer button-down collars, especially ones with big generous points that roll well, and spread collars.
    -tweeds of all kinds
    -madras of all kinds
    -patchwork anything!
    -nice walnut/cognac brown dress belt in 36 or 38. Any colour hardware is fine.
    -emblematic ties

    other ideas:
    -wool blankets
    -interesting or weird books
    -some coffee from a roaster from your area

    sizes in profile!

    One of my favorite films, and favorite lines. Gene Wilder is the best.

    I like this idea.

    I wear mostly Streetwear / Workwear / Denim these days. I do collect CM stuff like SC's, ties, etc... but rarely wear it.


    Things that generally work for me, or that I have been needing:

    • More recent J.crew shirts / sweaters in size L or XL Slim. Preferrably darker colors, but plaids / micro patterns are cool too.
    • Pendleton / Filson stuff in M / L. (44" chest, 26"+ sleeve)
    • Tapered leg dark denim in 38 x 34.
    • Tan or Brown flat-front chinos in 38 x 32.
    • Cool sunglasses in a larger / wider size. (I gots a big head -_- )
    • Cheap Timex or Seiko watch? Weekender / aviator / minimalist sort of style.
    • Black plain toe dress boots. Chelsea or w/e. 13-14 E.
    • Cool vintage lighters.

    That's about all I can think of. I hope this helps. Cheers mate.

    Don't feel bad, my own wife doesn't know what to buy me. I really don't care what I get, if anything. The holidays for me are not about a material item, I spend all year thinking about that. Send me a handwritten card on thrifted stationary and it would mean more than a Kiton tie. Seriously.

    Thriftsmas buddy:

    Not too worried about receiving anything in particular, I'm not too picky. But for the sake of giving an idea; a 6 pack from a good local brewer would be a wicked gift. Not sure how feasible that is with shipping though... [​IMG]
