    The photos above clearly shows only guys with excess in leg length can afford to wide cuff and doesnt look short legged as result, and
    everything looks cooler when slightly dusty, disheveled, scruffy, and in black and white picture.:p
    :D im team stacks. I feel longer legged when my jeans has normal opening and stacks a little.

    Beautiful color. Congrats.

    Looks a bit like Bentley's Racing Green. Does it have a 9 printed on its back? :) 602C04D8-F67F-4036-94A6-6C821E7DA42C.jpeg

    @willyto thanks very much for that post. I appreciate that. This was why I think those wider chinos look good with my RMC jacket. I'm fine with being called a cosplayer or something like that because I am dressing quite similarly to people from the first half of the 20th century, but that was my point - that people do wear jackets like this with wider trousers and I think it can look quite good. Obviously, it would look better if my stuff was more worn in, but we're in a pandemic and I am working from home and I had to swap a lot of the clothing that I was putting wear into because of my weight loss so I am unfortunately behind on getting my stuff broken in.

    Anyway, here's my Freewheelers Lot 667:

    That's a good point. The disheveled, slightly grubby look really makes it pop I guess it looks less like a pristine costume. I wonder what the lighter pants are, you see them all the time do you think they are wool flannel or cotton drill pants in a bone colour?

    I normally prefer buttons on a trucker jacket but this one really works with snaps. Really like this color, and this hide is so perfect to wear for Southern California where it's dry.

    I still believe the magic lies in monochrome photos, every color even dirt looks coherent in shades of greys. As soon as you put real colors then the magic would be gone, skin color hair color combined with clothes with real fading and real dirty color al youll see are just sad miners in dirty clothes after full day of work, you never know the pants you like could have been powder blue.

    Yeah I would NEVER go for snaps on an actual denim jacket, but I quite like them here. We don't get rain much and it's fairly warm, so a light, suede jacket like this is absolutely wonderful for this weather.

    That alone makes it look like my clothes are dirty and more worn in... although in fairness these are some clothes that actually have a lot of miles on them. I wear the boots, trousers, and henley a lot and the jacket was obviously well worn before I received it.

    I finally received my Aero 1930's Slimfit Halfbelt in Cordovan CXFQQ yesterday. Ordered this back in September and have been patiently waiting for it arrive - I'm absolutely delighted with the outcome! It was made by Janice, one of Aero's newest machinists - her attention to detail and craft is legit! I went with the "wildcard" option for my Lochcarron tartan lining, as I wasn't fussed what tartan was used, as long as it was green! Now I just need to break this badboy in, I didn't consider how tough the leather would be on the nape of the neck and the inner elbows! Still absolutely buzzing about the colour of the Cordovan, it's unreal.

    My sizes are down below.

    Well, Jake there did great effort in color coordinate and looks great in color.
