    LA Guy, did you get the RR-style Japanese dry selvage, or the streaky flame dry selvage? And nice jacket.

    flsxik, nice outfit... we have the same jacket. Also +1 on the shoes.

    Sauce, great looks as usual.
    Cheap, love the hair in your latest pic. I would grow my hair out long again, but the Asian 'fro intermediate stage is detering me from doing so.

    Thanks about the jacket. Wife's Christmas present from 2005. A go to piece for my warmer toned outfits.

    The jeans are the RR-style Japanese Dry Selvedge. I wanted a go to pair of jeans, Nudies fit me well (these are actually 30/32, so my true size.) I could probably go one lower for a tight fit, but you know I am not a fan of tight fits. From the Denim Bar. With the discount, these things are only slightly higher priced than they were pre-distributorship, and actually cheaper than in Europe given the exchange (they are still cheaper in Sweden and Norway, however.)

    Funny, my original plan if I didn't find anything in NYC that really grabbed hold of me was to do exactly that--buy a pair of Japanese dry selvage Svens from Denimbar. In the same size, even! [​IMG]

    LAG, those Fred Bare caps are pretty rad on you. one of the only 'hat' looks that I've ever liked. Your head shape and facial structure is perfect for it.

    Jeez - come on, Harvard! This is why China and India are eating our frickin' lunch... Edit: No, I don't actually have a camera myself - so what? It's still funny...

    Get Smart, I think you probably just sold 10 more suits. Great jacket, I love that it's a higher-stance one-button, unlike most one-buttons where the button is basically at the navel.

    LAG, I also realize you are probably Chinese (right? I have a rough understanding of Asian names), which sort of blows up the joke, but you know what I meant.

    Anyway, I was just yankin' ya before I added that throwing the old country scarf on top of the EG and Edun is a stroke of genius. Is it patterned or solid?

    Thanks for the compliments. Chinese, yes. This is the way academia works though.

    Prof to research associate (me) or grad student: "I think that we should look X phenomenon. Heard something at meeting Y you should look at."
    Research associate: "Okay, I'll see what I can do." (Goes off, fucks off on the internet, gets around to research, figures out how problem should be approached in about 1 day, messes around with program for a week. Gives up on debugging, goes to programmer.)
    Research associate: "I can't figure out how to get program Z to work? Any ideas what might be wrong?"
    Programmer: Takes a look for 5 minutes. "Ah, here's the problem." Fixes it on the spot, including debugging, in 15 minutes.
    Research associate takes fixed program, works up results, does analysis, and writes paper. Boss reads through it, tells associate to redo runs in 10 different ways, then rewrite paper. Research associate does this, needing to visit the programmer about 20 more times. Rewrites paper.

    Paper is submitted. After review and rewrites, is accepted (hopefully). The paper is henceforth referred to as Prof G's work. Research associate gets second billing. Programmer gets an acknowledgement to 6 point font at end of paper.


    Edit:

    Anyway, the scarf is great - my favorite right now, actually. It is a really intricate plaid weave. Looking at it now, it is predominately russet and burnt orange, but with forest and moss green, chestnut brown, and a brownish red in it as well. $38 from a traditional Irish soft goods store (Irish Imports, Cambridge MA), soft as cashmere lambwool.

    The same scarf from Dries van Noten would be $150. Loro Piani would sell the thing for $300. I really recommend traditional stores for accessories like scarves. Unfortunately, clothes in the same stores, although the construction is on par with stuff from brands like Engineered Garments and LOden Dagr, and make brands like Rogues Gallery look cheap and flimsy, are made for Burly Irishmen (tm) and not for guys who can fit into those latter brands. I tried on a few of their sweaters, in the smallest sizes (small), and even those were too long in the body and too large in the torso for me (the better to fit over bellies.)
