    I am a believer in closing all toggles on cardigans. Just looks weird with something dangling off.

      Is your blazer mainline J.Crew or factory? It looks the same as mine. Great clean look btw.

        meeting up with some friends to watch the Kings/Blackhawks game. (Go Hawks!) I do love the way these Uniqlo x Michael Bastian polos fit.

          I plan on getting them hemmed, so I will keep your advice in mind. Thanks!
          6' I normally wear about a 34 inseam in most brands, never hand them hemmed, but I'm guessing they lost about 1" - 1.5" in length so I'd wash and dry them before hemming for sure! They sit at the top of my shoes now.

            Thanks. I actually don't know the story with the jacket. I got it at a factory store, but I'm pretty sure I saw the same or a very similar jacket at a main store a couple of weeks ago. Do they even sell mainline stuff at the factory stores? I haven't seen this jacket on the factory website. All a long way of saying I don't know but probably factory...

              I have yet to see anything mainline in a Factory store.

                Is there a style number on the tag? That'd be an easy way to tell.

                  Easiest way to tell from mainline and factory: check the label, if there are two small diamonds under J. Crew it's factory. Same with Banana factory, they have three diamonds.

                  I've seen a few mainline items at factory stores, they are rare and are always going to be in the clearance section.

                    Made it through about half those samples last night, including all the Creeds. I've come to the conclusion that not only my wife has a better vocabulary than I do, but also her nose works much, much better.
                    LOL! I really thought the concept had very little (to no) interest. But OK, I guess if even just a few of us chat in it, then it might be beneficial. Just remember: you guys asked for it. I've been known to get a little... uhm... *wordy* at times. You've been warned. Ha!

                      Good to know! In that case, the jacket is Factory - and highly recommended. The linen blend makes it deceptively light and breathable.

                                Didn't post yesterday because I spent the day packing boxes. Here's Day 3 of my lean wardrobe experiment. I don't think I like this belt, but my other casual belt is navy/white striped and I don't really like it for this outfit either.
