    I may do just that. Will look through recent posts to get a sense of the various designs. You do large rhinestones surrounded by gold leaf, right? ;-)

    Beautiful Duke. Love the design — striking, interesting, eye-catching, yet symmetrical and not over the top or flashy. Though probably too advanced in years to commission a belt like this, I’m tempted.

    RESOLUTE by hayashi-san!

    Great color combo b_F. As you know, I’m a little less resolute on Resolute than you, though I love the texture, color, and softness of the denim.

    Thanks Darren -- love the jacket and soft collar, very warm. Runs kind of big, by the way.

    Not lumpy at all. Great looking coat JDelage.

    Full Count Denim Thread

    ^ Didn't realize the inseams are shorter now. My first FC pair was an 1108 in 36x36 (still have it but don't wear it), followed by the 1101 and 0105 in both 33x36 and 34x36.

    Cold Summer, the 1108 is a trim fit through the hips and thighs, no doubt. You may want to try the 1101 or 0105 -- both more forgiving in this area.

    Full Count Denim Thread

    I hadn't worn Fullcount jeans for a few months and put on the 1105 this morning. I'm posting because I'm reminded how soft Fullcount's denim is. In terms of comfort and feel against the skin, there's nothing in my experience that quite compares. I love several other brands (e.g., Ooe, Warehouse), but FC really seems to have the magic when it comes to the softness of the fabric.

    What are your jeans doing today?

    That’s a dish I’m not familiar with. Is it a b_F creation and how did it turn out? Most important, did the baby smile at the aroma, if not the taste? (too young, I’m guessing ;-)

    RESOLUTE by hayashi-san!

    I’m wearing the same model and size today too. Like em, but the leg twist on mine puts the seam in the middle of the back of my left calf. On a trim pair of jeans like the 710, I can feel the pull and twist.

    For a wool sweater, it’s soft, in part due to the relatively loose weave. But I only wear it over a long sleeve shirt, so I can’t say for sure. If I want to wear a sweater directly over skin (arms or body), I’m going cashmere ;-)

    Beautiful belts and buckles Duke. Not sure why, but well made, interesting belts are not easy to find.

    I love the sweater. Beautifully made, relatively loose weave, very comfortable, but, yes Broark, quite warm. I'm a 17 in FW shirts and an L in the sweater would be fine, but I wear it over a shirt and t-shirt, so went with 44/XL -- no regrets.

    Two lumpers! Good to know I'm not the only one who's tempted to double (or triple) up -- justified with jeans, not so much with leather jackets.
