I love this selection, but a quick question for ya. I’m an athlete, so Levi’s straight fits usually get tight around my butt, quads are more forgiving of muscular builds?
Sorry, that was supposed to say “quads and calves. Do you know of any brands that are more…”
Give Levis Shrink to Fit jeans a try. They come larger, you soak them, wear ‘em, and they shrink to your man-sized legs. I’ve never done it myself but here’s a tutorial from Thighs Bigger Than Your Head.
I always liked those boots from lands end canvas but I have a question. I need some boots that are versatile and weather resistant (such as these work boots) that look just like these, but I almost find it a necessity to now have a zipper somewhere on the boot to make it about 500x easier to take it off/put it on quickly. Any suggestions? I know more ‘fashionable’ boots like some of steve maddens and john varvatos have em but I want it on a work boot.
I did some searching this morning and nothing came up. I would suggest you look for actual work boots, versus those sold to wear casually. Specifically duty boots for soldiers or police have side zips. I have a pair of duty boots that have this feature, but they look like SWAT boots unfortunately. (Or fortunately, depending on your style. )
Anybody have a pair of the work boots? I am about to pull the trigger on it since it looks so damn good!
Btw, if anyone wants to buy anything from Land’s End today use promo code: DISCOVERLE and pin: 6702 to grab a quick 25% off.
Awesome! Thanks for the promo code!
Thanks for the advice Andrew! Can I just say, I love the fact that all the staff of this magazine makes an effort to help their readers. You guys are awesome! Keep up the amazing work
Glad we can be of service!
@Kevin, as for boots with a zipper:
Wow, I can’t believe how well priced all these items are. That is why I love this series.
This is a Great series and i always end up buying atleast two from the list.
Has anybody tried the Waxed Canvas Field Jacket. I am really tempted to get it, but not sure how durable the material and the look and Quality of the Jacket in Person.
Love the shirt from the Gap, purchased it on sale two weeks ago for $39.99. I have received numerous compliments about the fit/style of the shirt.
