    No need to check websites; you can just look at the pants…

    I went through a largely similar process—tried waffle weave & liked how they felt but couldn’t get behind how little drying power they had The lack of decorative bands was a definite selling point as well (it’s that, in particular, that pushed me towards Towels by Gus over the other options working from the same mill)
  4. @pomata You're right. It doesn't mean there's no difference. As I said, it means there's a difference in the DAC or the amplification stages. CDs aren't like tape or records. There's no finesse involved in getting the data off of the medium: it's just 1s and 0s that are read directly onto an onboard RAM. This is the same whether you're loading the bits straight into a £2 000 deck or storing them on your computer. It's what you do after reading them that makes the difference.
  5. I’ll add another vote for just ripping all your CDs & getting set up to play them from your computer (or whatever other device) There’s no such thing, really, as higher- or lower-quality CD players, as far as actually reading the CDs goes—that’s a big upside to digital media—any quality difference will be in the DAC and amplifier, and any decent DAC + amp will plug into your computer just as easily as to a CD player, so you might as well save the physical space. A thousand CDs takes up a good few shelves, but it’s no more than ~3 TB of actual data, which is plenty cheap these days

    Went on a big hunt a while back for replacement bath towels, and ended up settling on a company called Towels By Gus. From what I gathered, they’re one of two or three companies still using the last remaining domestic (to the US) towel, and of the two or three they seemed the least frilly / decorated. Overall, I’ve been extremely happy with them. Anyway, for anyone who might be in the market: looks like they’re having a pretty big sale right now on the remaining stock of their largest size towel (“bath sheet”, whatever that means). Go wild.

    No updates—I’ve been told to sit tight while he “sketches”
  8. I would expect scratches on chromexcel to cover themselves up just fine with a little wear and some brushing…that leather doesn’t seem to hold marks easy

    Got really excited when I first caught wind of them, but according to Ryo the jeans are even slimmer than the S40s, which were a good bit too slim for me to begin with, so…

    ^ If you think you could go a bit slimmer, there's a pretty dark pair of the 15th anniversary 1001zxx in size 31 up on Yahoo right now for ~$85
  11. Stevenson Unionist is a good option. Django Atour has been recommended a slew of times, but I’ve never gotten to try them out due to sizing concerns. If linen blends work for you, Freewheelers has plenty of options

    @heyson Thanks—they’re the 1951 601xx

    Great find—color does look very similar to the raw M41200, nice true blue

    @beautiful_FrEaK the 1946, of course I’d had them on my radar for some months, but wasn’t particularly taken by any of their styles—when they announced this one it seemed like an easy call
