    Review time! (Figures I’d post here rather than start a new thread). The server apparently isn’t allowing me to post photos, so, sorry. I’ll try to post pics tomorrow if it’ll let me. I ordered the Trek aluminum carryon suitcase in silver: $395+free shipping, so I didn’t pay anything out of...

    Well this made my week! Coincidentally, I was looking at suitcases this weekend for a trip to DC in the fall, so the timing is GREAT. Thank you @mikel / MVST for setting this up! I’ll post pics as soon as I receive it. Now to figure out which color- definitely the Trek carryon, but conflicted...

    LL Bean pants sizing, true or oversized?

    I have several pair of chinos and they’re my best fitting pants without alterations- TTS in a 32x32, with a perfect rise for me.

    A Trad "What are you Wearing"

    Love all of it, but that watch and overcoat are something else

    A Trad "What are you Wearing"

    Saddle shoulders aren’t really a factor for me- it’s neat if a sweater has them, but I won’t not buy it if it doesn’t. I honestly don’t notice any difference in feel or wearability between saddle, raglan, or set in. I have 3 from Bean (gray, green, and navy) and love all of them.

    A Trad "What are you Wearing"

    Shetlands and tassels were apparently the theme this week: Gloverall - LL Bean shetland - VV shirt/chinos - AE shell Grayson’s Unseen- VV Texans belt, because playoffs They don’t have saddle shoulders, but the Bean shetlands were a pretty great value- decently thick, warm/durable, and...

    A Trad "What are you Wearing"

    Today is just a variation on yesterday. Same shirt/sweater/shoes/pants, just in different colors (except for the pants): I actually hate bathroom selfies, but they’re easier and quicker to do than setting up my camera and timer at home: Gloverall - Bills khakis shetland - PRL OCBD - VV...

    Are You Rich?

    You’re not wrong. I went to school at Sam Houston and roadtripped to McNeese for a football game one year- there was a storm system that followed us all the way there. It was kind of bizarre to watch the radar matching our drive.

    A Trad "What are you Wearing"

    I’ve wanted an ascot for so long, NYE would’ve been the ideal occasion for something like that

    A Trad "What are you Wearing"

    I don’t know if they still do, but I picked up 4 of these (gray, light blue, Kelly green, rust) during the fire sale at the end of 2015- normally $225 IIRC, I picked them up for $30 apiece. MiUSA, so not traditional in that sense, but made of thick Shetland wool with saddle shoulders. I wouldn’t...

    Bills Khakis shetlands are severely underrated imho:

    Houston gets colder than a lot of people realize as well. Since we’re costal, we’re humid year round, which makes cold weather feel much colder than the temperature would indicate. Went to a concert Sunday night in the overcoat/cashmere sweater- as warm as those are, we were still really cold...

    Austin can get cold- I was there mid December and had my overcoat from a few posts ago, was still pretty chilly. Maybe my tolerance is low.

    Tiffany Engine Turned Belt Buckle

    ^This My wife and I have bought Tiffany’s for each other since we were dating. We have friends who used to give us a hard time about it because they would buy mountains of cheap costume jewelry for the same price as a single Tiffany’s charm or necklace. As I told them, with jewelry, I’d rather...

    Tiffany Engine Turned Belt Buckle

    The seller mentioned the same thing in the description- I didn’t notice the waviness until you mentioned it, but if I were buying, I’d want better pics first.

    Are You Rich?

    My single best deal I’ve ever gotten on anything was a kelly green cashmere cable knit sweater from Ralph Lauren Purple Label- $1k retail, found at Marshall’s by yours truly for $49.99. A statement and a caveat: Statement- I think this sweater is worth the retail price. I’ve never felt a...
