  • [MENTION=10240]LCDR[/MENTION], just curious... what inseam are those?

    Comment


    • [MENTION=6633]Duvel[/MENTION], they came unfinished, so I took it to my local dry cleaner and had them make the inseam 28.75 inches. (I am 5'7'' and 125 lbs. I went shorter than usual for a no-break look, and to show some sock this summer) inseam tailoring cost was $16.45.

      • I was under the impression the Fitzgerald fit was slimmer than that? Those look great though.

        • Nice. Can you show us how you do the no break look?

          I like all of this by the way. Great shirt and pants, and you wear them well.

            Those are both great looking items and fit is nice. Really digging those pants and frankly I'm surprised an ESF isn't more fitted.

            • Thanks.

              Also, got this washed button up shirt from JCF in size small. $36.83 - $25.00 rewards card = $11.83 shipped:

              As with most of the JCF shirts, the material is very thin and likely very wrinkle prone, but it's not hard or scratchy. I would consider it a summer weight shirt for casual wear. I like the blue color. The sleeves are too long, so I am wearing them rolled up. I was debating whether to get the slim version, but I guess I'm ok with the regular fit.

              (The trousers are also new from Epaulet New York. I will post a review on it once I get it back from the tailor)

              • [MENTION=10240]LCDR[/MENTION], got to love those rewards. I snagged a pair of stone urban slim chino's at the Jeffersonville outlet this weekend using mine and walked out paying only $6.32.

                • Nice, I know the store you're talking about. I passed it several times driving from Columbus to Cincinnati.

                  • I'm on a roll here... my new watch just came in from the Nordstrom online sale.

                    http://shop.nordstrom.com/s/accutime...m-_-proddescr1

                    I was looking for a simple unobtrusive beater black watch. Something minimalistic.

                    I think the style looks comparable to a Seiko I saw on Amazon, but that one is $118.00: http://www.amazon.com/Seiko-SNZG15-A...C1P5K1FE38W2VY

                    Here is mine the box it came in:



                    The case is thicker than I thought it would be, and it has a substantial weight. I love the no-branding, no-labeling on the dial. (The brand is ACCUTIME, and it is quartz). The nato strap seems decent quality, but it is too long and needs to be tucked in at the end. The case size is 40mm, but it looks a little too large on my wrist:





                    Overall, I like the style, but would have preferred a smaller and thinner case. But, you can't beat the sale price: $17.88 shipped.

                    • I almost picked up one of those as the Yin to my Weekender's Yang. Was unclear on it's amount of water resistance though.

                      • Wow, I like that a lot. May I ask how much?

                          I believe Target is offering a different version of that watch with different NATO bands.

                                picked up in black. A much needed staple for me.

                                I actually got them for $214 when I ordered them in the store. I really hope Jos. A. Bank isn't stamped on the bottom of them.
