    Huntsman, I have the same jacket but it's way too big for me, I really need a small (6'3" 125lbs). It's too bad though, I like the look of it a lot. Dont' really care for the plastic zipper but its one of the few peices of clothing from my pre-caring-about-what-I-wear stage (i bought it freshmen or sophmore year of highschool) that I still like. But if someone wants to trade me for a smaller but equally warm jacket I'd be up for that.

    Areth, the convenience thing is just an excuse. They really just think it's fashionable b/c everyone else does it. It's such a disgusting epidemic, everywhere you go in oc and la you see it. To me, it looks like you can't afford shoes.
    How else would you define fashion?

    man i started a riot [​IMG] I just like the sandals because they're comfy, its hot here, and alot of people do it so it is pretty aceptable around my part of cali. nobody ever bats an eye. i think it looks kinda neat too, as the black chucks i woulda wore would have made the outfit too genaric. i'll post another outfit later tonight

    a good pair of sandals can cost almost as much as shoes! [​IMG]

    Sorry bro, if I ever left the house like that when I was younger my mom would yell at me saying to put some shoes on because I looked homeless.

    I have a couple pairs of 527s, though you seem to wearing yours sized up once or twice. The bootcut's rather extreme for my tastes; I'm contemplating having them turned into straight legs or at least making the flare subtler, but I'm not sure they're even worth that.

    That said, I don't think they fare too well being work sized up; the low rise and extreme flare get out of control when they don't fit as intended.

    Wearing your pants low and slouchy is sizing up. Your true size is probably around 30, even if you don't own anything in it.

    I wish I liked mine more, but I found the washes (at least the ones I could find at Macy's at the time) bland and flat, and the massive flare doesn't help. The worst part was that of all the jeans I've had (everything from the Macy's 527s to J Crew to 1969s to Earnest Sewn), the only ones to ever wear through the fabric in the crotch were my 527s. And this wasn't exactly hard labor wear, either. Still, the slim fit at the waist and through the upper thigh is nicely cut.

    My first post on this forum and in this thread and on a kind of "special" occasion. [​IMG]

    I'm visiting SF now (I'm from Vancouver) and finally managed to buy myself some W+H and Wings & Horns stuff today, kind of ironic that I had to go all this way but I'm still happy. Anyway, here's what I was wearing today (put on the hoodie right after buying, since it was kind of chilly):

    W+H Sleeveless hoodie
    Zara long sleeve t-shirt
    Nudie belt (not seen)
    Nudie RRDS (around 3 weeks of wear)

    I'm not in a habit of buying $130 stuff to solve a problem that will last a few hours, so NO. As I said, I bought the stuff becuase I wanted to, but since it was a bit colder I put it on right away. It's not like it was freezing.

    the old levis premium usa made 527's are still one of my favorite cuts, less bootleg and tighter fit. kind of like an updated 517 imo. and they sold them in one rinse. in fact even after they brought out the 517 to the general public they initially had a 1 rinse pair, i got one, that replaced the premium ones that i wore into the ground...
