  1. I got some time to kill after work in the Mission tonight, I'll swing by.
  2. Fiending after the black waxed stadium jacket - what can you guys say about the sizing, as it compares to your Type 3 jackets?
  3. Homage to Chuck Taylors, I expect.
  4. No way he's wearing jeans. Sombrero, totally.
  5. My buddies who are (and soon to be were, RIP) the butchers at 4505 Meats swear by Namu Gaji.
  6. As someone who never tucks shirts in, I'm really liking the new longer length (that's what she said).
  7. I've got both, and I prefer the PF Flyers hands down, but your mileage may very. They have pigskin leather lining, and a leather toe cap as well. And a New Balance-y insole which is very comfortable. I've been fighting the urge to grab a second pair, but I probably will eventually. However they are little less streamlined and possibly beefier but still quite a low profile shoe. -Jake
  8. Where is your job? Depending on your answer, that will help pick a neighborhood.
  9. Dude I feel you, and when I first moved here, I moved to the Mission, but now I live near SF State. So I give zero fucks about being IN the city. There isn't anything so far out of the way from anywhere, more or less, that is a barrier to going to something I want to. Compared to other cities, anything here is convenient. All I want is the possibility for a small backyard so my dog can lay outside (pets seem to be the issue for a lot of landlords these days).
  10. Dex, when you say "dirt cheap" are you saying "I moved here 10 years ago and my rent is still dirt cheap" or do you just mean very cheap in comparison to the rest of the city with us all paying fantasyland rents in general?
  11. Do you like beer? Go to Mikkeller. You can walk there pretty easily.
  12. I really try to get into the spirit of what jeans were made for in the first place. I don't worry about combs shifting. If they are unsanforized, I soak them. If the are sanforized, I don't. I get my jeans hemmed about 2 inches longer than I need, wear them, and wash them on cold when dirty. Hang dry. Everything seems to work out okay when I do that. Which is not to say I don't understand the handwringing about combs shifting - I just try to embrace the shift.
  13. Dig the fit - how did you size the jacket?
  14. Also just a fun weird video to watch. I'm not ashamed to admit I aspire to Goldblums old man steez.
  15. [puts on flight jacket nerd hat] That A-2 is based off a Roughwear contract from the war. [takes flight jacket nerd hat off]
