    Might this be available?? I'm pretty interested seeing as to one of my favorite animals is this humble giant.

    Big of you, thank you.

    Id suggest taking a permanent marker and putting a big X
    or penis
    on it or something, to prevent unsavory actions.

    yeah, I was mad at first. I managed to shrink about an inch out of it and just decided to cuff em and keep since the price was really good. already have another pair of selvedge with very similar fit that is the perfect length for me so i figured this will be my 'stacks' experiment

    I feel it, I still want to take a pair to the tailor and see what they can do in terms of hemming. I might try it on these, we'll see. I asked her for exact measurements...

    we all put in a bunch of ties to start off the box - good shit, this wasn't all thrifted either. full price guys. maybe about 20 ties, then we sent the box round and round and you took a few, you put in a few.

    some shit that happened was :

    someone stole the box
    someone left the next box on the bus (and fucking got it back that was nuts)
    people were taking kitons and replacing them with dior monsieur

    Had this for the first time on my last trip to Chicago. Buttered Crust.


    Also, Austin, TX has a Gino's now, and it's not half bad.
