    Nice fitting coat. Great casual look.

    As good as the clothing is, I'm just as intrigued by the details of your hotel rooms--the ceiling molding etc...

    Bespoke cashmere/wool herringbone SC. I experimented with the length as well as the buttoning point on this one. Didn't turn out to my liking if I'm honest. To me both buttons should be an inch higher, as well as the side vents should reach the same level as the bottom button. Then again the labour on this one was super cheap, so I still wear it without regret and 99% of people won't notice anyways.

    Shoes are navy suede chukkas with crepe sole. Pre SF buy, still like em.

    I absolutely love those jeans. After 6 years they look terrific and I've been told on numerous occasions that I have a nice butt in these. From men and women alike. [​IMG]
    My future son will hopefully inherit those jeans.

    does this count as "mc casual"?

    not really happy with my business casual wardrobe. pants need to be taken in an inch, shirt waist is too baggy to really be tucked in, and v-neck is too short.

    It's nice to see someone around here wearing non-crazy socks.

    Side note: Teger, you familiar with Shockoe Denim?

    no. is it a denim brand based out of shockoe bottom? (if I had to guess?) that's MIA and uses cone mill denim? priced between 150 and 300?

    I google them and apparently I was right. I'm curious, but I don't really like cone mill denim and I don't have a lot of faith in these small batch local denim companies - they're hard to distinguish from one another, and because of their size either lack the top-notch detailing/hardware you can find on a premium japanese label, or have jeans that cost twice as much as they should.

    also it took me way too long to find their address.

    edit: also their house party pics kind of turn me off.. reminds me of the atmosphere at need supply parties, where 75% of the guys there don't really give a shit about clothes or fashion, and are only interested in dressing well because it's currently popular within certain subcultures. really boring. there's too much emphasis on 'atmosphere' at that level of men's fashion - who gives a shit about having concrete floors and exposed hvac in your production facility? i care about the fit, the detailing, and your pattern - not a specifically engineered image that was probably the product of an expensive marketing firm
