    Interesting. I think my old Baracuta had something like that but I never thought to use it.

    P Bateman, what'sthe make of that harrington?

    It's a Baracuta.

    I don't think we're disagreeing much here. To extend my thought, something like Carhartt fabric (which may be a type of denim weave for all I know) seems more durable and protective than plain old jeans. In any case, though, I've done lots of physical labor in jeans, and I don't mean to denigrate this staple of Americana.

    Citan I think the calf-and-denim thing really depends on the rest of the items worn. I think your gut instinct is more likely to lead to a coherent look than a more liberal approach, but I don't think it's as categorical as you make it out to be.

    Carhartt uses duck fabric which is two wefts over/under single warps (2/1) with no offset (with an offset it would be a 2/1 twill).

    It'd still be a 2/1 twill unless they're just using the same shuttle with two weft threads, the pattern would just run along the fabric instead of across it, with virtually no difference.

    Don't get me wrong PT, I think you look great, but also isn't this the ultimate sugar daddy look as well?
