  1. Was moving those big rolls of roof material and one of them nicked me right in that spot.
  2. Was in the portland/woodland area for four days for a wedding for New Years. I really enjoyed my time there. The woodsy, rainy, overcast environment is really my jam. A little visit to my uncle somewhere in Vancouver, WA. Nice and cozy neighborhood. Woodlands area where there was a insanely curvy road leading to our destination for the ceremony. Fit pic Freeman jacket Boncoura shirt Contest Jeans Downtown Portland area. I wasn't able to really taste the local foodsy stuff except for Kim Jong Smokehouse (pork bun; twas good if a little overpriced) and some other place down in N Williams Ave which was terrible. Wish I was able to get something from the many food carts I saw. SEPDX. Wasn't open as we were too early. Hot pot somewhere outside Portland. Chicken Feet Wedding Day. Suit from Proper Cloth. Like it for the most part. Design needs some work (e.g. less of a high gorge and lower button stance) so hoping they give us those those options later on. I probably could have also make the suit a little longer and let the waist out just a bit but again I like it enough. Jeans now
  3. Anyone know of a similar sweater to this with the buttons? I preferably want something without a logo. https://www.aimeleondore.com/products/fisherman-knit-sweater-3?variant=30108315680865

    Show us your leather

    My simple corter wallet over the years.
  5. Broark got great pics of it pre and post wash so won't bother trying to get good pics. Denim is super crinkly after wash and I'm loving the heck out of it.
  6. Wew. I see the short sleeve glory park is already sold out in certain sizes.

    In with a size 35. Also asked about the signage but nothing I'm holding anyone to anything.

    Hey @Bobbo Sorry to bother you with a sizing question but would you mind posting your waist measurement now that it's stretched out a bit. Just want to be completely sure since I'm in between sizes. I appreciate it.

    Shoes that look better with age...

    I don't think anyone here was saying/implying you were lying @cameosis. It just sounded a little off compared to other tanneries (besides Horween and Shinki Clayton and Comipel was near the same price range. Don't know what Rocinante, Argentina tannery, sell theirs.) That being said, with more research the 40 euros is pretty close to what Rocado, an Italian tannery, is offering theirs directly on their site ($66/sq ft) which if you were on good relations or bought a significant portion would probably bring it down further.

    Ahhh, I'm in. Just need to figure out my size.

    Well, I mean I curious as to how you could be able to procure cordovan at 40 euros then since other leather workers have tried and the quotes they're given for the various grades is much much higher. Almost seems too good to be true. Likewise, what was the tannery? There's apparently few who can tan cordovan and the process for it is supposedly more laborious.

    Gonna mull over this till the last minute, but probably gonna stick out of this one. Jeans looking real good though.

    You sure it was shell cordovan and not "cordovan" leather i.e. the color or calf leather that mimics the shine of cordovan. I ask only because Horween, Shinki, and Clayton supposedly sells theirs at $100+ sq ft. Likewise, there was also a little mix up that Mike from Epaulet had with his Portuguese supplier (wasn't shell cordovan but calf leather called cordovan).

    Belts

    Was literally just looking (and just bought) for some type of O belt and this looks really good. Like the use of the belt keeper as well. I'm assuming you made these belts?

    New collection trickling in. Imperial jeans seem to have the usual big waist and seeing pics of the Swingstar online is making me take a second guess on it. Fit on the arms looks like it bellows out pretty big and the print on the front/arms looks weird to me. Might be how big it looks on the jacket. Probably have to handle it in person to see for myself. Anyone handle the slinger jacket?
