    Well, I might as well introduce myself in here and get a subscription to the thread going.....although sadly on the daily this is typically what I wear:



    Nothing very dapper, to say the least. Although I frequently hear....remarks....regarding a man in uniform, so maybe it works better than I realize.

    Valentine's is coming up though, of course, so I'll have something a little more on-topic for that. More in a few days.

    Glad to be here, hope to learn a bit more and improve the off-duty options.


    (and yes, that's Supernatural....great way to pass the time when you're bored out of your mind waiting for class to start)

            Temperature in the low 20's this morning. Had snow flurries all day yesterday. If it was raining, they'd maybe shut Atlanta as a city down for today haha.

            JC topcoat, vest, flannel-lined pants
            BR sweater
            Lacoste polo
            Grenson boots

            I'm thinking hard on getting the jacket version of this vest. Edit: $90 on the website

              The peak lapels on the topcoat are a really nice detail. Also, I bought the matching jacket (assuming Sussex) and can vouch for it -- perfect weight for the cool days.

              ThreadStats says it's at 62.99 but I can't get the promo SHOPNOW to apply, so either an error or I'm missing something... http://www.threadstats.com/product/ckm. EDIT: I paid around $90 myself and can't complain.

                Jacket: JC Penney
                Shirt: Charles Tyrwhitt
                Tie & Square: The Tie Bar

                Edit: imgur is blocked on my work computer (I type out the URL's when I post the images), but it tends to still let me see pictures hyperlinked in threads, but I'm seeing X's. Is it showing my pics for the rest of y'all?

                NVM fixed it.

                  How is the fit of the jacket? For example what size do you wear in other JC vs the jacket. Is it slim or baggy?
                  Thank you sir

                      Got to working on my new Unbranded UB221's. 21oz denim is no joke. My heaviest until now are a pair if 13.75oz Cone Levis. These are a whole 'nother ballgame.

                      I'm not an uber denim head, so the construction is just fine for me, especially at $50 after some Nordstrom Notes. The fit of the legs is great, not to slim or loose. The top block is kinda goofy. Very low rise and high crotch, combined with the thick material is....different. It will feel better when they soften up. The N&F weird guy these are based on has a higher back rise, which would be nice. And like N&F, the pocket openings are a bit to small, especially with how stiff they are right now.

                      But, overall these will be fun to break in and see the changes. With a higher rise these would be perfect as a good, heavy work wear style jean.

                      Size of the yarns is crazy:


                      Suppa short fly, legs are perfect:


                      Low back rise:

                        No problem. It's TTS and slim cut, so I wouldn't recommend you change up your usual sizing on it. I'm normally a large and that fit great for me -- jacket length was spot on (hits just about where they portray it in pictures, maybe slightly higher) and there's no extra fabric anywhere to complain about. Only semi-complaint is that the sleeves are a touch shorter than I would prefer, but it's minor and I'm also 6-4 so likely a personal problem. Hope that helps.

                            If you don't mind me asking, how long would you say the cuffs are (1", 2"?) on the pair in your photo, and how tall are you?
                            I ask because when I roll my denim up to the right length, something looks "off," like maybe the cuff is too long/loud.
                            Yours look right though which prompted my questions above

                              Probably about 1.5". I roll once right at the hem and then over again for the smallest double roll possible. I'm 6', and a 31.5" inseam gives me a small break with dressier pants. These are a 31" waist and Unbranded lists a 34" inseam, though I haven't double checked any of the measurements.

                                I'm wondering what's up with the old guy.
