    THIS OR THAT? (Use me for all your Should I Buy...? questions)

    Thanks, all. Despite the price tag, I ultimately decided to spring for some brown MF Shipyard Chinos (rather than the Sportsman). Compared to jeans, pants have been much harder for me to get enthusiastic about at these prices. But I think these MFs are distinct enough from a run of the mill chino/fatigue look without being too over-the-top, which means I'll actually want to wear them consistently. The Stan Ray option is definitely one I'll keep in my back pocket; thanks for the tip.

    I'd like to get a non-denim pant back into the wardrobe, and I'm really liking the look and measurements of 3sixteen's new Fatigue Pants. Most chinos and pants are way too slim in the knee and lower leg for me. But $265 seems really expensive. Any other non-slim/non-denim alternatives worth considering?

    @SmokeStackLightning you should be okay removing the back with minimal damage. I recently removed the suspender buttons with the same basic hardware design from my tcb 20s with minimal damage. If you have needle nose pliers with the little wire cutter with the circular "cut out" (like those pictured below), just put the wire cutter side flush against the fabric and gently close around/under the flat end of the button on the inside of the fly. Don't cut it, but get a good grip and then wriggle it back and forth until it's out. You'll have two very small holes in the fabric, but nothing that can't be closed or covered with a new button.

    So what you're telling us, @volvo240thebest is that we're looking at the "W.H. Dungarees of flutes"? In all seriousness, I hope it's everything you've been waiting for. Cheers.

    @TheIntelligentHoodwinker you can see the full fiasco as it played out in the 20s contest thread, but, in brief, the original limited run of tcb 20s for the contest had arcs not unlike the now defunct fullcount arcs...conflict ensued...contestants returned their original pairs to tcb to be replaced with a new batch of contest jeans (because we care and wanted to help alleviate the heat coming down on tcb)...the contest happily resumed and is going strong (minus the few mates like @Broark who we were sad to lose during the replace or reimburse phase).

    curious, uninspiring changes by FC...it rather reignites my frustration with them, given how hard they went after the original tcb 20s contest arcs just 12 months ago. I hate to think that FC had already decided they would be getting rid of their arcs when that whole fiasco occurred.

    Still working on my outdoor denim photography skills, but here's how things look these days. I'm not usually one for desecrating art, but I've been seriously considering amputating the suspenders buttons. Anybody have thoughts or recommendations on how best to do that or how bad of an idea that would be?

    TCB

    ^Yup. That's the most likely explanation. Admittedly, I'm less puzzled by "why" this jacket and feeling more "if only" a storm rider (I need extra motivation to catch up to you @nycsurfer530 in the 20s contest). Anybody have any insight on the denim Inoue is using for these new pieces? I'm not finding any details on the web blog or the store, and I don't have a sharp enough eye to tell if it's entirely new fabric (my assumption given his past practices) or something we've seen before.

    TCB

    Right there with you @JDelage. A TCB-made storm rider would really be the dream for me.

    Are folks out there with the usn chambray finding that they take the same size in the loop-wheeled sweatshirt?
