    Thanks, It's a size medium, but fits like a small.

    Hmm, what is your build? My chest is about 38". All they have left in black is a size M and XL.

    Playing with settings on the camera. Today, we feature - no flash! Here is yesterday - a lot colder than today, and I decided to do a mirror shot. Surprisingly difficult. Anyway, lots of layers for the "never-worked-a-hard-day's-labor-in-my-life" workman look. Fred Bare John Varvatos DIYed military/biker style short jacket, LVC S506XX "Victory" jacket - a gift from Jay Allen. Before deciding to become a designer, he was in the vintage rag trade, and handled lots of the real thing. W+H black tiger shawl hoodie over a Jay Allen shirt. Also (not showing) 5EP raw bootcuts, worn sort of loose and slouchy, Engineered Garments for SF belt (blue) and natural Chucks. No, the expression on my face is not "I'm going to kill someone." It's "Man, it's hard to hold the camera steady for a slow exposure." [​IMG] Today - slightly brisk, but was sunny: Kelly Spruce hoodie, Oliver Helden t-shirt, Studio D'Artisan SD-D1002, Engineered Garments for SF belt (blue) and sweatshirt Chucks. [​IMG]

    Thanks man. The kelly green hoodie has been DIYed as well - I tea dyed it in, literally, green tea and saffron, and washed and dried it a bunch of times to fade it, initially. And that was last year. Since then, the hoodie has 2 homemade repairs from snags from errant fences, and numerous washes. (I like my clothes tough for a reason.) I also love my stuff slightly grungy and DIYed. The Varvatos jacket is from S/S 2004. I got it at Marc Laurent on Bloor Street in Toronto, near the Club Monaco building.

    LA Guy, great looks. I have to say though, you look much more "free" without the hat. If that makes sense. That hat seems to add a bit of a constricted feel to a very comfortable looking outfit.

    Yeah, I really like the hat, so sometimes overuse it (my wife thinks that I wear that hat a bt too much too.) I love hats, but it is nearly impossible to find one that fits well, so when I do, I have a tendency to wear it all the time.

    I put some contrast stitching (mostly orange) on the jacket when it needed some patching up. It is a jacket very suitable for the Italian army. That is, it looks really nice, but can't fight worth shit. Lampo zips, high quality hardware, good construction and taping throughout, really interesting twill fabric, etc... but the durability is not on par with real military stuff.

    This is what I was wearing yesterday (and on Friday night [​IMG]). Today I was wearing snow pants. [​IMG] Coat: Banana Republic Chesterfield* Shirt: Le Chateau Scarf: Gap Jeans: APC NS Boots: RM Williams Yearling Craftsman * It's boxy like most BR stuff and most overcoats. I've decided to wear it a few times to see if I can live with the cut as well as the sleeve length - comments welcome.

    How tall are you? Either you need a size down, some more muscle, or a tailor.

    That's a badass hat, I can't believe it costs so much but if I paid that much i'd wear it everyday too. It's hard to find a good hat, esp for the yellowman as hats don't tend to look good on *us*, imo

    They should bring back those hats that the Chinese Ming, Han and Tang dynasty warriors used to wear. The Samurai also had some cool headgear. I tell you, it's the white man screwing everyone else as usual.

    Dude, looks good, actually. But, you're wearing two pairs of pants to take out the garbage? How long is your driveway? Also, I highly suggest putting on your face.

    Not sure what the question is... what is my work, i.e. pays my bills? I am a research associate at Harvard. I research forest fires. Does that qualify as crazy?

    Oh, the white board, right. That's my wife's home office. She is a mathematician, a number theorist. So is one of my brothers. I have no idea what any of that stuff means. We were teaching our seven year old how to reduce fractions though. That bit I do understand [​IMG]
