    New pair of Levi's 508s and a couple of knit ties:



    The big score (for me): Barbour Beauly, size medium, reg $399. Found it on the XXL rack of Macy's clearance area. Price tag had it reduced to $135, but when the cashier rang it through, she told me they had an extra 40% off clearance items. $81!!



    Went back and hunted through the clearance racks some more, and also picked up an RLP blue gingham linen shirt. Again size medium, and again hiding out on the XXL rack.

    Also got a new Merkur safety razor on sale and some Smartwool no-shows (as well as stocking up on some single malts). Overall, a very productive trip!

    Not really a purchase, but a company did send me one of their linen suits to review. Very nice, except for the sleeves which are about an inch too long. But ... functioning cuff buttons. So I'll need to see what I can do about that.

    Levi's 508 look great, is it regular fit.

    In Levi's, I normally wear 511s, so I can compare them to those. The 508s are roomier in the hips and thighs, but not baggy (501s are way too baggy on me). They have a noticeable tapper starting just above the knee. I usually take a 33 in 511s. In the 508s I took a 32, and the leg opening is about the same as the 511s. The rise on the 508s is a little higher and the material is nicer. I really like the the fit. Hope that helps!

    I would move into an industrial freezer if it meant I could start wearing those immediately!

    Awesome, I can understand how difficult it would be to wait.

    LL Bean just put a bunch of these on clearance, and I picked one up on a whim (I had a gift card to burn). Now I'm glad I did. Just got back from a weekend at a friend's cabin up north, which cemented its place as one of my favorite pieces of clothing. It's like a particularly cozy sweatshirt, minus the ultra-casual look. It's nice to be able to feel that comfortable going into town without looking like a schlub.

    Thanks--I'm always looking for popovers. How is the fit? If you don't mind posting the size you bought and chest measurement, that would be super helpful.

    I got an XL, which was a pretty roomy fit without an undershirt. I wear a 50r jacket at present. Their flannel and chamois stuff tends to run pretty huge unless it's their slim fit, which runs closer to other retailers regular sizes.

    Just snagged a brown plaid waistcoat from Frank & Oak for a measly $39 - fits perfect!
