    @MJF9 I’m seriously tempted, but I reckon the price could be prohibitive. Anyone know if S&S will undermark the value? That might be the dealbreaker.

    Thanks @bartlebyyphonics. I like them so much, I’m almost considering swerving the tcb competition to continue giving them my full attention. Almost.

    @Collin nicest looking pair of orSlows I’ve seen!

    As I understand it, very little difference in terms of cut between 1000 & 1001 – both pretty classic 40s 501 style. 1100 are the 70s cut. 1101 and 1105 are 60s cuts. All of the above will be much more tapered than either the 1000 or 1001.

    @Ar_thor Beautiful boots. Who makes them?

    Unknown Japanese Brands

    That's good to know. I used to use From Japan, and it was the same format – putting money into your wallet to bid on items. They used to let you put whatever value you like, but seem to have removed that option these days. You can still mark it as a gift, but with that £35 limit, it doesn't exactly get you very far. I always think it's ludicrous that they factor in shipping costs to the value of the item, as well. Anyway, Zen it is, next time I'm so inclined...

    Unknown Japanese Brands

    Does Zenmarket let you alter value? I've had a few Bronson packages, declared at full value, sail right through customs recently... but every single time I order from Japan – whether the package is undervalued, marked as a sample, whatever – I always get stung. In my experience I've actually found Fedex worse than EMS; my suspicion being that that they deliberately hand it over to customs so that they can make the additional handling and transaction fee for fronting you the money. For comparison's sake, when I was ordering direct from Japan to Toronto, I'd say items got through (declared at full value) about 75% of the time with no additional charges.

    @volvo240thebest How'd you find the sizing on those excelsiors? Want to pick up a pair myself.

    @wmb I find they’re pretty consistent with most Japanese sizing. I’m usually a medium in western brands and take a large in Warehouse tees — same as I do for mccoys, buzz, etc. Don’t own any MF so can’t comment there.

    RESOLUTE by hayashi-san!

    @beautiful_FrEaKThe thigh is what troubles me. I need a bit of room there. It’s always the downfall of slimmer cuts for me, so I’m thinking 34 might be safer.

    RESOLUTE by hayashi-san!

    Resolute oracles ( @beautiful_FrEaK ; @Collin ) – if I were to jump on this ecru 710 wagon, I'm thinking a 34 would be about right. 34 in OA01, 32 in WH 1001 (both with a bit of room in the waist), 31 in TCB 50s (bit more fitted up top). I want them to be quite relaxed. What do you think?
  21. Kit Carruthers

    TCB

    That's great news. Re: the jacket, I wonder if we'll see the usual TCB thing of a modified length. I'd be much more into a true repro, but that doesn't seem to be his style when it comes to jackets.

    RESOLUTE by hayashi-san!

    @Collin yeah i've been eying up the ecru 800s. Wish I'd nabbed them from Goteborg Maufaktur when they had my size. Son of a Stag have them but at a ludicrously inflated price. Also considering the orSlow French work pants in ecru, since I already have a pair in black and dig the cut.

    RESOLUTE by hayashi-san!

    @Sakamoyorke I think that fit looks good, particularly from the front, but I can see what you mean about it maybe being a little tight around the butt, and I've never really known a pair to stretch in that area. If they're not comfortable and you have the option, I'd size up. Seeing those pics actually kind of makes me want these – they look way less bright white than I was thinking they were, for some reason.

    What are your jeans doing today?

    Yep, Bond Street Coffee – about as Brighton a spot as it gets. Small Batch kind of led the charge with quality coffee down here, but I don't think it's managed to keep it all up with the big expansion it went through. In fact, I think it had to shut down a branch or two (pre-virus). Might be mistaken on that though. Red Roaster in Kemptown also pretty good – and have in fact been going much longer than any of the competitors. Best café all round is Twin Pines, hands down - magical little hidden gem. One to bear in mind for that late British summer holiday that we're all being promised/threatened with.
