Q
Where can I find a nice pair of light washed denim for spring?
from:Anonymous

i’m on the same hunt. depending on your budget theres a few different ways you can go about it. my top suggestion would be denim & supply, their new lighter denim is pretty strong and their slim fit is a nice cut, plus, their pricepoint is attractive.

second, and at a slightly higher price point would be levis made and crafted, or APC .

last summer i bought a pair of $29 stonewashed dad jean levis. high wasted, wide cut but an awesome wash. brought them to the tailor and for another $18 he did a total rework, which landed me with these

goodluck.

Q: Man, how do you go without wearing socks?

A: the trick is to not concern yourself over other peoples foot underwear choice.

spring, you’re playing hard to get. and it’s making me want you even more. #topsiding

Q
Whoa! Way to do absolutely no research on the collar/sleeve stains question- before the asker ruins their shirt with bleach or throws it away, a simple stain pretreater (oxyclean, Zout) or the Laundress's Wash & Stain Bar do wonders.

Q
What kind of shoes do you recommend wearing with shorts? Particularly, I need help with black shoes. Often, they look too formal or are clearly made for pants.

i recommend loafers, avoid laces.
