Alright, so I took my favorite UC jeans out on what ended up being a way more extreme than expected adventure and they split down the crotch and thigh on one side... Does anyone know of any services that might offer a repair? It's pretty bad, so I don't think the typical darning services will be feasible. I'm almost thinking I should find someone to install a gusset?

I'm trying to keep these available for somewhat presentable situations, so I'm trying to resist the urge to just go crusty with them.

sold acne coat on da bay to a guy in germany who now says he can't checkout because the stupid global shipping programme wont let him (quick google indicates this could be true). wants to complete via paypal.. just worried he'll do a chargeback on me but i guess paypal's seller 'protection' is pretty much the same as ebay now right?

Yeah, if you send him a detailed invoice its basically the same thing. Don't have to pay eBay fees either.

My plaid cotton watchband of about 5 years has worn down. Where can I get nice 18-20mm cotton (not nylon or leather) watchbands? Extra points for interesting or strange designs.

Do Muji hoodies run small? Is a US M equivalent to a Muji L?

Tagging @kyung because I'm pretty sure he has one.

I just got one of the pullover organic terry cotton hoodies. I got a Large. I wouldn't say it's equivalent, it's like Large = Medium and a half. Worked out awesome for me :^)

I'm looking for a new and first pair of raw denim. I really like the fit of my Levi's 508's and one pair of 514's so is there something out there that would compare fit wise to these two. More along the lines of a 508. Also it must come in black...

I'll stop wearing black when they invent a darker color.

Supreme is coming out with these terry shorts. I'm open to getting them from Supreme, but wouldn't mind picking them up elsewhere if anyone had suggestions. I'm very drawn to the peach colored ones.

Can anyone ID this A.P.C. coat? I'm looking for information on when it released and whether it was in the women or men collection.

You can tell that it's a men's coat because the buttons are on the right hand side if that's your worry

Any recommendation for training trousers? By training I mean workout + group class (both inside in a gym). So don't want tights.

Was considering the tech fleece but I guess it would be too warm.

I tried on this OL jacket last weekend and I liked it a lot.
Image

Turns out it's a copy of an M65 liner that goes for £10 on ebay. That got me thinking about other jacket liners. Syekno told me about Barbour liners and I stumbled upon this reversible fake fur sleeveless liner.
Image

It would look pretty cool on the other side I think.
Maybe I could keep just one lightweight jacket and wear it with a liner in winter??

Do you guys know any other cool jacket liners?

I was in DSM NY a few weeks ago and they had these cheap $60 sunglasses in a huge variety of colors. Anyone know the brand? One style, bunch of colors, matte finish

mystery pack because otherwise you'd have no games for the 3DS and that is Just No Fun.
