    Why wouldn't Alden put the textured surface of the sole all the way to the toe? The toes on my shoes wear out quickly unless there is rubber there.

    I believe I read somewhere that the reason is so the grippy crepe doesn't catch on stuff and make you trip, but honestly I've no idea.

    I just purchased two pairs of AG Graduate jeans. Nordstrom Rack for $75. I buy expensive-ish clothes (and other things), but I could never stomach spending $225 for a pair of jeans when my Levis work fine for $40. But I tried on a pair at Nordstrom a couple months ago, they fit better than my Levis, so I bit the bullet when I found this sale.

    Also bought a zipper vest from Eddie Bauer since they're one of the few places that makes a medium tall. We'll see how it looks when it gets here today. Hopefully not big and boxy like the one I bought from BR last year (and returned). http://www.eddiebauer.com/product/ve...=111&color=100

    Picked up this Brooks Brothers mainline jacket on clearance at the Brooks Brothers outlet - Seattle Premium Outlets (which is actually 40 mi north of Seattle).



    Thick but soft, water resistant cotton woven by Nova Fides. Has a zip-out quilted vest for added warmth.
    Was surprised how well it fit me (slim but not too tight in small, my go to size), especially as the sleeves were the perfect length instead of 1-2" too long like most brands.

Settled on these Danner Vertigos... we'll see how they are in-person.

    Got these, didn't like them in-person, plus they didn't really fit anyway. Back to the drawing board.

    Thanks to S&M's sale, I pulled the trigger on a charcoal sharkskin suit. It will soon be banishing the black Men's Wearhouse abomination I bought as a stupid college kid.

    I bought four pairs of Darn Tough socks from REI as they are currently 25% off:

    Hiker Boot Sock Full Cushion (1405)
    Hiker Boot Sock Cushion (1403)
    Haselton Hiker Micro Crew Light Cushion (1939)*
    Solid Crew Light (1617)

    I'm going to wash them in accordance with their care instructions and see which level of cushioning work best in my boots. No pictures, I'm still searching for a new image hosting site.

    *I think Captain America would wear these. :)

    I bought the Merlot and Emerald Fields chinos last week from Bonobos. The Merlot's I wore in engagement pics, and are so easy to pair. I'm having such trouble working the Emerald fields, the green is just a little too dark to wear with a navy sweater without being too match. I tried it with a https://5thandlamar.com/collections/...ucts/riverside but it still felt... off.
