    A quick search tells me resident DM expert Get Smart agrees with you on the "for life" line. Did you get the regular black or the "smooth black"? From the pictures I like the look of the regular ones better, but maybe you have seen them both in person? What's the sizing like? TTS?
    I sized down 1 full size from a 10 to a 9 because I felt like the 10's fit a little too big. The 9's were perfect, and the leather is a bit spongy so I knew that they would stretch a bit. My shoes are a matte finish, not shiny. I don't know if they're regular or smooth. ha. I wanna get the oxblood made in England pair, too. Also, great fit Zissou!

    It is an amazing jacket. Here it looks nothing more than pedestrian. Making an epic piece fall to the wayside.

    Totally disagree...although many here own it I rarely see it work in a fit...it works perfectly here.

    I spent some time in Chicago this past weekend. Here's a brief overview:

    manofkent, those smiths are pretty nice but I'm not really a fan of the cargoes. I feel like you still need a bit higher of a rise for optimal proportions due to your height.

    Not sure I agree with that - High rise can look a bit old-manish. I like the cargos. MoK's jeans / slacks would look better in medium or maybe low rise, and a notch looser on the belt so they sit a bit more relaxed. Diff for formal clothes of course. If you're tall like he is, you have a bit more flexibility IMO.

    ...


    late to the party but this is great, that jacket is john partridge?

    I ordered their duffel coat at the beginning of the season sized down 1 and while quality was pretty awesome and it fit me great, even a little big as a duffel should, the sleeves were such massive tubes of fabric i didn't know what to do. Like they looked like bell sleeves. Tempted to get it tailored but passed in the end.

    so after all these words, out of curiosity, how did you size that jacket?

    Gutman, I didn't mean to recommend truly high rise pants; just a little higher rise than that particular pair. Even just an inch or so higher.

    I do agree that his height gives MoK flexibility in that area. It's the same flexibility that allows guys like superbobo and zissou to look good in looser cut pants.

    this is nice. how do you like the mmm?


    thanks

    they are awesome, but not very versatile...meaning i require more weekend-only spaceman wear to go with them. thinkin some silent and ann d pants. all my denim looks dumb with those shoes, though. any recommendations?

    Really? I think they look good with denim. If you take it too far they're a costume piece.

    Thanks* for the compliments on the fit, guys. The Cameraman is one of those pieces I'll be wearing forever. Bobo- yeah, my beard is thick. Puts the hair on top of my head to shame :\\

    Someone here once said that skinny guys should wear drapy shit. Well, this is about as drapy as I get.

    Everything looks good to me, pants in particular. Extra props if the cardigan is navy, but I suspect it is just the light. What are them shits on your feet? And if you didn't notice, Imageshack doesn't like it here. Imgur seems to be the popular choice lately. Good fix.

    that looks like something I'd really like though it's hard to tell what's going on.
