    Dem Stacks.

    - Gant Rugger "The Hugger" Old Loom Oxford. True Thrift. One of my favorite shirts, with such an awesome plaid. Been losing weight, so I should get the back slimmed up a bit as you can see.

    - Unbranded 201. Thrift-funded. These are actually my best fitting jeans since losing more weight... All my other pairs are too baggy -_-. Have worn these 1.5+ years, and still barely any fading.

    - Adidas Stan Smith. True Thrift, with new laces. Happy to finally add a pair of these to my sneaker rotation. Going to try to wear these as much as the good weather will permit.


    Wanted to wear a more "Streetwear" shirt with these items, but all my Norse T's were recently washed and drying:

    Those are all Niels Boucles. And yes, I purposely match the hanger colors to the shirt colors. [​IMG]

    Beard / Pattern detail. That collar roll was on point today. [​IMG]


    [​IMG]

    Sneaker / Selvedge detail. Those sneakers cleaned up so damn well. Bright White... clean... like new again with some fresh laces.

    Love when people give stuff away like this. [​IMG]

    99% sure it was WWM and not John Rich. It was a gray wool coat, couple large button pockets on lower front of coat. Looked fairly short but was an XL, so it was big in general. Can't recall the site of manufacture. Looked to be older -- maybe 10 yrs? Sorry, I know this is probably not all that helpful, @Nataku...

    I know a while back Peal & Co for Brooks Brothers were made by EG. Are any of the new ones made by Edward Green? I picked up a mint pair yesterday that have the size, style number , etc.. handwritten inside.

    Maybe so, but in my experience they're:
    a) a bitch to get the length right -- far fussier than any other knot
    b) a bitch to get the proportions right; you often end up with a knot disproportionate to the blade that exits the knot or a knot that's laughably long and thin (unless you're Spoo)
    c) only usable, at my height, on extremely long ties.
    Add a+b+c and it's just not worth the effort. YMMV

    I don't want to hash the Great Knot Debate here. Its been beaten to death throughout StyFo. I'll pause to say, though, that for me, one of the benefits of being free of the shackles of WAYWRN is I do what feels right for the tie and the situation now. Sometimes that means half Windsor which, Takai, I think is what you had there, whatever you called it), and sometimes 4IH.

    BTW, asymmetry is sometimes the intended effect of 4IH and double 4IH. As in, yes, my tie is asymmetrical, go fuck yourself. Sort of the Red Queen Hypothesis of ties -- I can be asymmetrical and still land the bitches.

    When the inseam is "Open" an Overlock stitch, it's a cheaper, faster way of doing things. You actually WANT to see Flat felled seams; "Folded over" inseams. It takes much more stitching to accomplish those, and really they are very uncommon on selvedge in this day and age. A flat felled seam is much stronger than an overlock as it exposes far less thread to the riggers of daily life.

    I can try and put together a visual guide from my archive, however Im not actually sure I have any denim with FF seams that I did not put on there by hand. Ha.

    Ridiculous "find" of the day... $500 for something I could get new for $685.
