    In the novel "Perfume," the main character has a superhuman sense of smell. The author describes many different smells by breaking their odors into their constituent parts. Humans are apparently a fine mix of cheese, vinegar and cat poop (so, y'know, we got that goin' for us...). Of course this is fiction and takes place in renaissance France, where folks probably smelled kinda gnarly under the best of circumstances, but nevertheless it illustrates an important point: I don't think I want to know what any of you smell like today.

      Really like this look, man. The shirt is a perfect fit. Mind telling me what "fit" that one is? I'm looking at the bonobos OCBDs (or at least CBDs) for some future spendage, so just curious. Slim? Looks like it; but I'm not that up on their cuts.

      Also it's just short enough there, IMO, to leave untucked. I have one helluva time ever going that route, as my shirts all seem to be too long - getting into the GOS territory if I leave them untucked - so I don't.

      Dig the color scheme - the jeans look great too. Just an all-around really-nice simple-casual getup. Coolness.
      Thanks man, appreciate it.

      Yup, the shirt is their "ging crosby" or some such play on words in the Slim fit. I'm just shy of 6'3" and the length is just about perfect. Any shorter and it would be TOO short, but for now it hits just spot on for casual wear.

      As far as how it fits, it's just right in the shoulders, tapers pretty well, a little bit extra material in the back so I would hesitate to tuck it in due to potential billowing in the back, but it's just right for a fitted casual look.

      I'm also looking at throwing some money at an OCBD from Bonobos. I recently bought a pair of their Oxford cloth shorts, of all things, and it's the softest oxford cloth I have ever felt. if shirts are anything like that material (and it says its the same material), they'd be a great fit + great feel. Hard to beat that...

      And this concludes my uncompensated advertisement of Bonobos. hahaha, whoops!

        The one that's the male torso shape and makes me hide the bottle, Aye.

        Beast as in strong? I do 1-2 sprays max

        Or scent, it's nothing like sex panther.

        I'm excited for my creed samples!

          All those samples from Perfumed Court came today yoyo, including Creed GIT. Sensory overload. Why don't you start a cologne thread? I'm sure there are others that would be interested in it too.

            Got them a few weeks ago and they were like cardboard. I've been doing some squats and lunges after I put them on, they are now reasonably comfortable.


            FYI they shrink quite a bit when washed and tossed in a dryer (oops), legs were short to start with and are now unwearable unless I manage to stretch them lengthwise.

              I think he should. Someplace where we can ask him all our cologne questions.

                Something looks off there. I think that's one cardigan where the bottom toggle should be buttoned too. What does everyone else think?

                  It's finally warm enough to start rolling the sleeves up. Which works out perfectly since the Calibrate trim fit shirts fit me flawlessly except the sleeves are about 1" too short.

                    FWIW, the model wearing the cardigan has the bottom toggle undone too.

                      Did you get yours hemmed, or are you just really tall? I have to cuff mine 4x and I still have a bit of bunching around the ankles. (I'm 5' 9")

                      I plan on getting them hemmed, so I will keep your advice in mind. Thanks!

                              None. I actually only have 1 at the moment which my mother in law gave me as a gift. I usually forget to put it on though.

                                Had to go back through my email to find this... they seem to be the slim-straight.

                                Mine doesn't even "buffer," it just freezes and I have to close out the window and open it again. Pretty irritating, though at least it seems to be able to remember where it left off.

                                The buckle is from Montana Silversmiths and the belt itself is some random brown Ariat I picked up at a local ranch supply store. This belt has become something of a trademark of mine around here.
