  1. Rent from the airport. Not worth the extra hassle. Return it and cab into town.
  2. Forget Rickon. That witch needs to work on bringing back Wun Wun.

  6. this may be my favorite thread on FFA at the moment
  7. I have two pairs and like them. If you get a cool pattern they're $. Just make sure you wear a white tshirt or something simple or it looks way too preppy. I also love seer sucker shorts.Bought these the other day and love them. Look good at the pool or just casual wear: http://www.oaknyc.com/men/men-apparel-shor...us-check-shorts
  8. The jeans that I've paid $100 or more for are the ones that last. My favorite pairs are at least 10 years old.My cheaper jeans are the ones in the trash two years later. I know it might sounds strange, but I'm actually saving more money in the long run by buying a much higher-quality pair of jeans. Plus, it is a pain trying to find jeans in a 29/30 waist, 31" long. I find the higher-end jeans offer more size-wise. So not only do I get quality, but I get to save the time and expense of getting them altered. Plus, since I'm an art director, I never wear skirts/slacks. I always wear jeans because we creative types can get away with it in the workplace. So yeah, it is worth it to me to pay upwards of $150 for a great pair of jeans. They are the only fashion item I splurge on. Yeah but you're a girl. Totally different for a guy.I bought a pair of jeans off the clearance rack at Kohls for $20. The look great and have lasted close to 2 years. True, I am a girl. However, it seems to me that the jeans for guys are so much more simple. We women have more hangups about our bodies. So we want jeans that slim our tummies,make our ### look good, and makes us look thin. It's a lot harder to find jeans that we feel show us off and yet look cool. For guys, I think it is much more simple than that. =) All you need is the waist/length/color and you are pretty much set. Not so with us.yeah, being a guy when I try on jeans I want my belly to bulge, my ### to look flat and an obese look in general
  9. Summer attire for guys is a tough one for me. I'm not a big shorts and sandals guy personally, but understand that in the summer it's a necessity and when it's hot out comfort is key.Here's what my thoughts would be for your post: - Cargo shorts are OK to me....just make sure the pockets are somewhat streamlined to the leg...not a big fan of the shorts that have pockets that stick out 4" from the leg and look like you have a bag lunch packed away in there. Also make sure the length is appropriate....my rule of thumb is just below the bottom of the kneecap. When I wear shorts I also tend to go up a size in the waist than what I wear for pants....I personally like my shorts to be a little bit baggier and have a little hang to them compared to pants. A snug fitting shirt with slightly baggier shorts is a solid summer look IMO. - Personally I'm not a big fan of the marathon, local bar, softball league, Intramural champ T-shirt thing. I feel it comes off as cheap looking. Now, if the shirt has a subtle design or a funny saying or picture or something that's a conversation starter than I'm all for it, but more often than not I'm more of a fan of just a solid color T-shirt (v-neck preferred. Bonus points if the t-shirt looks a little vintage and washed out or faded). More simple and classic. - Sandals or running shoes are fine. Just be careful with the running shoes....make sure they aren't bulky cross-trainers. Shoes with shorts should lean towards being more of a streamlined "athletic type" looking shoe and keep em simple. All white or incorporating one color is better. Subtle is always better in my opinion. - Also be careful with the socks when wearing sneakers....I prefer no socks or very short (below the ankle bone height where you can't really see them anyways) if you're the kind of person who gets weirded out by not wearing socks with shoes. - Thumbs up on the shades! Visual of what I'm trying to explain... http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_HE7ZiqYDIW0/RqhN...shorts!.JPG The only real problem I have here is that people that wear fake vintage t-shirts or ones with "witty" sayings on them should be punched in the face repeatedly. Legit 20 year-old Jax Beer t-shirt = Brand new faded Miller High Life t-shirt from Target = :facepunch: ironic t shirts are played like parker brothers and the fake vintage ones are even worse. Ed Hardy even worse than worse.
  10. I want to buy a pair of these shoes for my Republican friends: http://www.sneakerobsession.com/1848/obama...e-one-sneakers/
  11. I have noticed this difference from the jean links you've posted. Majority of my jeans seem to be a little more on the distressed/casual style and yours steers towards the glossier/sleek denim (which tend to coincide with being a bit more espensive as well)I do have one solid pair of black William Rast jeans that would be up your alley, but as much as I preach investing in nicer jeans I can't bring myself to drop that kind of coin on one pair of jeans all too often. Just checked out the Rast jeans and they look good....I like this pair of black jeans...http://www.revolveclothing.com/DisplayProd...am+Rast&d=b As for price, it depends on what your budget is and what you consider important. To me a great pair of jeans and a cheap t shirt are all that i need. I used to cringe at spending $200 for jeans, now I see brands like Dior selling for $500+ and it makes me feel a little better...I try to get my ish on sale though...rarely pay retail especially in this economy.
  12. In regards to the BBQ afternoon/night attire question.....definitely keep it simple. Nice pair of well fitting jeans (I'm not a shorts guy personally), simple V-Neck short sleeved T-shirt with no design (just white or light colored), aviator style sunglasses and possibly a simple short-billed cadet hat (if you're a hat guy).Visuals from my 4th of July attire yesterday to coincide with my thoughts above.Cookout/hangout during the day: http://i280.photobucket.com/albums/kk161/o...on/IMG_1505.jpg Night out downtown with some college buddies: http://i280.photobucket.com/albums/kk161/o...n/IMG_14742.jpg not liking the jeans in either photo...but I'm a big denim snobWhat brands do you like? I'm looking to branch out from brands other than all the urban brands.Jeans are tough to recommend b/c they're so dependent on how they fit you. One pair can look great on a friend and look terrible on me. If you live in NYC or LA you can easily try on a lot of great lines and see what works for you. Best quality denim for the price is APC (around $140). The brands I like best are Nudie, Paul Smith and Rogan. They're not cheap but I generally wait for sample sales and get them for about $100/pair. If you don't want to spend over $100/pair look into Mavi. They fit great and are decent quality for the price. Whatever you do, don't go spending $150 on a POS pair of Diesel or True Religions.As for colors, I'd recommend going dark. I like dark blue and black jeans.
