    Couple of work fits

    [​IMG]

    Pants are current season Jan Jan van Essche in the brown taupe which is a waxed/oiled canvas made from 97% cotton and 3% linen, fantastic fabric.

    Shirt is frank leder, green linen, hence the wrinkliness ;p

    I have really big thighs and the PBJ Loose Tapered work good, the washed out pair looks like your JE. Only problem I heard is if you wear a size smaller than 33" then the leg opening is super slim, like 6" or some shit.

    yes, do it. you won't regret it.



    yes, do it. you won't regret it. (pm me if you having sizing, styling, or pricing questions. :))



    just speaking from experience, my black reinhard plank hat definitely got looser as i wore it more. it may have to do with the particular consistency of the fur, compared to the one you tried?

    also, while we're on the @cyc wid it lower body clothing recommendation subject-- have you considered footwear that is less sleek? maybe boots that are more combat-ish (with a more bulbous toe and thicker sole), as opposed to the mmm's you wear a lot? i think that would help balance out the proportions on your fits (especially when paired with diniro's recommendation for pants that are looser in the thigh), since you have such wide shoulders.

    I dig his boots. The MMM boots seem to have really chunky / square toebox?

    In effect, [email protected], I will bet money that Mr Moo is actually getting his words by translating word-for-word from the Russian language.

    Russian language borrows massively from Greek language---(we gave them everything that civilises them, they are barbarian animals by nature! Just look at Putin!!)--and modern Greek language, which of course comes from classical Greek language, is full of idioms that draw on hyperbole...for example, you can indicate someone knows a lot by saying they "have forgotten more than [someone else] knows".

    Example for use:

    My brother Teger: Stanley van Buren knows so much about car models!
    Me: Indeed he does, my brother Teger. He is so knowledgable! He has forgotten more about Volkswagens than even the German engineers know!
    My brother Teger: "I don't like Germans"
    Me: Why not, my brother Teger?


    etc etc.

    If you're under 33" then you need to be a shoe size of ~9 or smaller to fit through. I'm barely making it through the opening of my 28" as an 8.5D. But they're amazing if you have a small waist and large hips/thighs.

    Good stuff. I'm a 35.25" waist and I'm wrestling with a 33.9 waist or a 35, knowing that my legs warrant the smaller size. Do you think that the waist can stretch over an inch? Is there fabric to open the waist?
    Thanks
