Joy said...

i like it all. the first fake coffee cup is just brilliant.

james said...

love the herringbone Californias. Shoulda got two pairs. Don't think I've seen em anywhere as of late. Bows & Arrows in Berkley always has a nice selection.

Cool. Do you own all of these?

Love the color and cut of those Left Fields but my butt isn't meant for them. :/

nice to see that you're posting the usual. Not some bandwagon jumping euroitaliantailoring

This is a very beautiful, evocative post. I have to wonder, any chance Left Field might make women's canvas khakis any time soon? Or at least provide us with equivalent women's sizing? I am almost certain those 29s would still be too big for a woman who wears a J. Crew 4 or 6, but I can hope. Men's tailoring works pretty well on me, men's sizes, not so much. *sigh*

HOME RUN!

LPC, not sure about Left Field doing women's in the near future(perhaps Christian could confirm), but as they state, the chinos are not vanity sized(as J.Crew does). I would think that a Left Field 28 might indeed work with a little tailoring. Good luck.

james said...

Yes, this is the way I dress and yes, these are my clothes.

LPC said...

Thank you. I suppose if they just didn't fit I could always give them to my skinny son.

Hey LPC,

The LF sizing runs small in the waist. The actual measurement is about .5 less than the tag size. So a size 30 is actually closer to 29, a 29 closer to 28, etc. And, ff they don't work for you, the brand has a generous return policy.

I think you have the best taste of the whole current menswear blogger scene. Your styling reminds me of early (2005ish) Engineered Garments lookbook - as in you go for a great, dressed-down, relaxed everyday look, but with a bit of eccentricity and great materials. The color mix is also nice.

What I am basically saying is "Don't change". No disrespect to Daiki and EG, but a lot of his later stuff is bordering on the costume-y. Makes sense for a brand that crosses over to the fashion world, but he lost a bit of the "great shirt and sweatshirt over it" relaxedness.

Granted, this comes from a guy who thinks of menswear as an interest exclusive to douches, and can't stand any outfit that looks "put together". I am looking at you, Ry'on!

I need to try out those Left Field Chinos. I've only heard great things about them.

james said...

Sangsouvanh Khounvichit, I highly recommend you doing so.

james said...

BilloBallo, wow. Thanks. Glad you dig the site and what I put on it. Always a rad thing to hear from people who connect to something they find on SFs. Huge thanks and hope you keep coming back.
