    Best.setup.ever!!!! Love it!

    Wool, linen, and silk. The last character is suppose to be silk.

    I almost koped a pair of their duck canvas pants when I was at their store on Valencia.

    I need some denim help. I picked up this pair today and it looks like they are the Momotaro x Context 07010MC Grand Indigo selvedge . Can anyone confirm?

    Is the fit supposed to be slim? These are tagged 34 and are really tight on me. I usually wear a 32 in Levis 501 selvedge and 33 in Gustin.

    If anyone wants to trade another pair of selvedge for these I am game.

    yes Momotaro 701s have a slim upper block with slim tapered leg, definitely a slim fitting jean, not a 501.

    Japanese also use some alienated Chinese characters when writing , eg these three ( i'm a Chinese and can't read Japanese)

    New to Styleforum-- discovered it after a huge thrift win last week, and now I'm hooked. Anyway, I wanted to share the finds that brought me here in the first place.

    In short: I'm American, recently moved to Switzerland, and desperately needed some shoes. Found a local thrift shop. Found some shoes that looked like they had no business being in a thrift shop, and it turns out I was right:

    First, I found these-- not a bad find:

    Not bad, right? For 15 bucks, a great pair of Cheaney shoes. Then... I found these:

    Zegna limited-editions. #354/1000. Found them for 20 bucks.

    Needless to say, I paid and got the heck out-- I felt like they might change their mind before I left the store. I'll be hitting this place often!

    Been hard out here for a pimp. But a few things.

    Horn horn, J. Crew cardi, and gator belt are NA, wearing 2 of the 3 as I type this. Uniqlo jacket is unstructured and awesome. Shoes are Church's.

    Welcome to the USA! RRL corduroy pants heavily distressed (or are they totally wasted? The crotch and the seat especially. Can anyone comment?)
