small questions thread (use before making a new thread!)

^that's about 8-9 inches approx?? not too baggy imho. tried on some cdg carpenter pants the other day that probably sit in that range. looked pretty good when no break; also worked with a beefy cuff. imho once you start to get to wider pants it's more a question of silhouette + drape + how they'll fit your body type. i have a pair of y-3 trousers that have a similar width (based solely on eyeballing the hems laid flat) and they end up like this:

but i've noticed they drape forward more than they flare at the outseam/inseam so >_>

ive raw hemmed a pair of trouser just with scissor, didnt pay much didnt care, but i though of maybe going for a real hem at the tailor, can they still do something ? theyre almost at perfect lenght right now, so if its gonna shorten them a lot, fuck it ?

i'm far from an expert on these things but i assume the tailor can just give it a clean finish and it wouldn't take off much at all. just ask them and find out

ok cool, its such a light trouser, i shouldnt have done that tbh, it just drape good like 1/2 times cause of the raw hem.

any recs for lightweight running vests/bag/body bag things?

 

had my eye on CCP BA-T004c and fits pretty much everything that I'm looking for. Just would like to know other recs or options.

For context this is just for casual outdoor jogs meant to carry my phone and bulky house keys. Was also considering one of those arm strap phone carriers.

any advice on how to tighten this collar? it's second hand so used, but wondering if there's any way to make it look like it's about to melt off me without destroying the shape of the tee. it's all different materials, so not sure I could tailor it at all.

Can you really go wrong if you're buying sweat shorts or is it worth paying for quality? It's getting pretty hot where I live and I need something functional and comfortable. I looked at reigning champ but it seemed like a lot of money to drop on a pair of sweat shorts.

Go buy regular sweats, cut to desired length, and enjoy.

Anyone ever seen any good pictures of how island dunks look after getting beat up a bit? Geobaskets seem to be everywhere but I'd love to see the age and wear on a pair of dunks.

Hello,

 

Looking forward to grab a few pairs of these Tabio socks: https://tabio.com/uk/detail/042110014/

 

As you can see, they are readily available in the UK store. They can be shipped directly to me (however, I don't live in the UK and there will be a shipping cost) and the buying procedure is straightforward and in English, thankfully. Thing is, they are priced considerably higher compared to their price in Japan. I found them on Rakuten for 972 yen: http://item.rakuten.co.jp/kutsushitaya/062110025?s-id=top_normal_browsehist&xuseflg_ichiba01=10003915

 

I have absolutely ZERO experience in buying from Japan.

 

What would be the best way of getting those socks to me, from Japan?

Should I even bother, or just get them from the UK?

Is there a risk?

 

Thanks!
