Hey, rl1856, do you get your Cabelas chinos unhemmed or will they do a big cuff if you ask for it?
Unhemmed and then my tailor does the rest. I like to have my chinos proffessionally laundered and pressed, which I have found to stretch out the fabric slightly. A pair of prehemmed trousers well end up slightly longer than desired after a pressing. For this reason, I have new trousers laundered and pressed before going to the tailor. This way the length will still be what I want after subsiquent pressings.

Ross

I will attend a funeral later today, so I am appropriately attired. When dressing this morning, I was again reminded that one of the best off the rack suit lines of the recent past was the BB Brooksease line. Well made for their price point, excellent fit, excellent fabric. This suit line hit the point of diminishing returns for a men's suit. One had to spend a lot more for MtM and then full custom to achieve a meaningfully better result. This cut just fits, and is very comfortable to wear over the course of a day. It would be outstanding if this line were to be brought back. One can wish....

Anyway:

Navy worsted BB Brooksease / 3r2 undarted sack
White pinpoint oxford BB BD
Ben Silver "Old Felsted" Rep Tie (green background, with narrow stripes of yellow/red/navy
Leatherman Crocodile Pattern belt, Silver monogrammed clinch buckle
BB wool lisle socks
Allen Edmonds Verona bit loafers

Vintage gold case Wittnaur wristwatch and a navy with green stripe NATO watchband.

Tomorrow will likely be a tan poplin suit, blue BB OCBD, Rep tie, with dark brown belt and shoes.
