Well that sure is an interesting photo to start this week's post off with
Today’s cover photo is extra good
I wear the same stuff a lot
Well, until you grow your beer belly out...
Most carhartt items don’t fit me. I’m tall and slight and I find carhartt to be either too short or too wide for me to wear.
So no idea, but that coat is at least two sizes too big for its wearer
get one with the elastic on the bottom to keep it tight. always buy a size down in Carhartt sweatshirts and coats as well, they seem to be tailored to larger folk. I'm 6' and 220 and I buy a size down otherwise I'm swimming in it.
I've copped 2 vintage ones at this point and they both stick out the back. Idk why, is there a way to fix it e.g. what measurements should I be paying close attention to or can they be tailored? Appreciate any help
Regular USA Carhartt work jackets do yeh, its proper workwear and so they deliberately have extra pleated back and shoulder so the wearer can move around more easily and the jacket can go over the top of other clothes like thick hoodies, overalls etc. The fabric is also dense and rigid so they hold that 'puffy' shape more than usual.
Carhartt WIP (work in progress) is a European version of the brand and the WIP jackets are mostly all cut differently in slim-fit fashion patterns. So they have similar fabrics and all the look of workwear but nicer slim fit. Downside is Carhartt WIP is more expensive than regular USA Carhartt.
You don’t. You wear it with pride.

You pretty much can't get them out of suede. Try hitting them with dish soap and water on a cloth for a few minutes and see if it lessens it.
suede ereaser if you really want to but denim stains are considered really cool for most people!!
if these are the jcrew nikes thats suede i believe
I have the burgundy Killshots and I’m trying to clean the mesh, but the dirt ain’t coming off :(
Maybe saddle soap to reduce the staining, but i agree with the others, the colouration builds character in your shoes
You gotta boil your denim first.
Hands soap in gel with some water and a tooth brush. Doesn't matter if it's a red or green soap, it's gonna do foam and be away with some water. It's worked with a lot of shirts.
I used dawn soap and some warm water and it got most of mine out on my killshots.
You don't, unfortunately. I tried cleaning mine (had identical stains after a rain storm) with everything I could find under the sun - no dice. BUT I can recommend the shoes I wear as substitutes: New Balance 791s. Basically identical shoes without the suede so you can actually wear them outside more than twice ever before they're ruined (I'm salty).
Have you tried using Jason Markk Suede Cleaning kit?
Suede eraser, and I've actually had some success with horsehair brush.
Treat it with gentle sandpaper and then use protective suede spray
There are suede soaps but I would embrace it.
Try with rubber, one that use for crayons
Dude, magic eraser.
Where pants that fit you. If it's doing that it too long.

Earlier this week
Mod note: I would be hesitant to say this is because of the Walmart acquisition. Bonobos QC has always been awful, and the main thing that saved them was the easy return process.
The QC is one of the reasons I don’t buy from them anymore. Enjoy this picture of the other reason I don’t.
I see your Bonobos QC and raise you Banana Republic QC
Both the same size/pair of pants, but the light grey pair was massively baggier and longer than the dark blue
Seems like my past Levis experiences. I bought 4 different pairs of 33x32 513s in the same color and all 4 were different lengths.
Seems about right
I guess that's what happens when you sell out to Walmart
Somebody else just posted the exact same thing a few days ago. Wonder what happened
I would talk to them, they have excellent CS
😂😂 What the heck?! Did you email them about it? That’s so odd.
I mean you have to at least think there's gonna be an acceptable range within a size, whether it be an inch or two, that might be within their qc requirements. Its a little unreasonable to think that you'd get 100% identical articles of clothing, not to mention shrinkage differences among fabric lots or even depending on the age of the material
IDK why BONOBOS gets so much praise in this sub, their quality sucks. The fabric just feels super cheap.
I’m waiting on my first purchase from Bonobos to arrive at my door step. This doesn’t really instill confidence in me.
Currently experiencing this with Gap, I have a couple pairs of 30 length Khakis that fit perfect. Ordered 2 more pairs and they're almost an inch longer.
30x30 +- 1in
I've had the same issue with shirts. I bought M and L over time and some M fit like snug M and some fit like L. Some of the L fit like M and some fit like XL. Recently I bought some J Crew tshirts and while it's better, I still have one L shirt that fits like a M and one that fits like XL.
Damn, I actually like Bonobos.
Dealt with this same issue. I had 4/5 out of tolerance, which is 0.5”. The tolerance amount seems comical when you consider the difference in inseams are 2 inches. Ended up keeping two pairs I liked and returned 3 after subsequent exchanges.
You're buying clothes from Walmart, what do you expect?
Their quality is shit. I have a pair of navy pants that have faded to almost grey on the thighs despite being washed inside out with cold water.
This is why I never could get into Bonobos. Would order a couple pairs of pants in the same style online and they would fit completely differently.
I think we need a little more info here... there are lots of reasons this could happen:
Factory labor inevitably produces this kind of variation. If it's within an inch of the measurement you ordered, consider yourself lucky.
There's only one way to get consistent sizing: find a good tailor.
been having the same issues. bought 4 pairs in the same size and fit a few weeks ago and 2 were extremely snug and the others were a lot looser.
The same thing happened to me when I bought some from American eagle. Still mad about it lol
What other brands show inconsistencies like this? I’ve heard Levi’s (never in my personal experience though). Any others so I can be weary?
What brands have acceptable quality control? The main thing I like about Uniqlo is that you can get pants hand altered in store to your desired length.
“It looks fine to me.”
Same size, but were they the same fit?
Bonobos has really slumped in my opinion. I had the same thing happen where I bought a new pair of jeans in the same size, style, and fit as a previous pair and they were a good inch shorter. Sent them back to get a different pair which came back longer than my other pair. Sent those back and they would only give me store credit. Finally placed an order last week during the sale and it took them 6 days to ship them out. Customer service "upgraded" me to 3 day shipping instead of 5 days shipping to make up for the 6 days they were late. They claimed to be super backed up, yet increased the sale % despite being a week behind on shipping. Probably won't order from them again.
I've purchased 10+ pairs of their Chinos, selvedge denim, 100% cotton denim, linen pants, cotton dress pants, lightweight dress pants, and wool dress pants. They all have similar issues. I've asked their CS about it and "we have a 1" variance on length". So I'm assuming their width of waste and thigh probably have similar astronomically high variance.
Same goes for their Daily Grind Dress shirts. Some I can button the neck on, some I can't. Although I almost always blow the elbow's out after about 12 months and a wash every other week (no dryer, iron only).
This happens to me all the time! I'm so paranoid I literally try on multiple pairs of pants in the same size/colour every time I got shopping just to make sure.
Quality control: it’s important
Need banana for scale
Reminds me of the last time I picked up some Dockers chinos. Picked 4 or so pairs in my size in store and tried them all on. Every one was different, but at least in store you can choose what works for you!
I hate that
I don't buy Bonobos chinos anymore because three of the six pairs I used to wear turned terrible after washing them. Followed all the instructions on the tags. I donated the other three since I lost weight and could not fit them anymore.
So fucking infuriating. It's hard enough to find a pair that fits right and then I can't even buy backup pairs!
Yup, has happened to me quite a few times. I'm no longer a customer unfortunately
I do it based on athletes having oddly shaped bodies similar to my oddly shaped body. What else can a guy do that keeps taking Ls on off the rack fits?
What footwear do you people wear with chinos?
I used to mainly wear bonobos but seeing all the negative QC make me want to look elsewhere. Is there a similar Jean brand anyone recommend for a 6’3 240lb~ guy?
This pisses me off so much.
Yup, same thing happened to me this month when I purchased 3 pairs of the same size and style of stretch chinos. Luckily I tailor clothes and was able to fix them instead of going through the return process hassle. I really think for the price of Bonobos they should have some form of quality checks. Makes me think of the Monk episode "Mr. Monk Goes to a Fashion Show ".
Same thing with my lululemon clothes. So bad.
This happened to me with Levi's. Same khaki, different colors. 3 completely different sizes. Frustrating.
This is common with a lot of manufacturers. Shirt sleeve length is also usually a problem.
In store at small retailers will give you better consistency and they can usually alter on site if they are any good.
So how much do you have to spend for a brand high quality enough to avoid this?
I have had similar issues with many brands and price points. Get a pair of pants and they fit so good I decide to buy a few more. Same exact size different fit. Had it happen with shorts jackets etc. Very frustrating actually.
I mean, that sucks. But most people are going to get their pants tailored anyway right? Very few people are going to fit the exact length off the rack. So of all the parts of the pants to be inconsistent, this would be the most acceptable.
Also, nice foot ;)
Seeing as how they're the only brand I found with athletic fit and 36 inseam, I have no choice. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
The inconsistency is appalling though.
What similar brands can I go with now that Bonobos is sold to Walmart?
Work at a retail store every company has a QC margin of error, in mine it's +- 1cm. Also different dyes will interact differently with the fabric causing changes in the feel and even the size. Not defending this company don't really know them, but in retail no two pieces of clothing are exactly the same so it is paramount to always try stuff on.
This is from the production side of the world. There's lots of places in the process to introduce distortions to the final dimensions of products. The first place this can happen, and my suspicion here, is in the laying of fabrics before cutting. As fabrics are stored on rolls they can be put on the roll with varying degrees of tension. This tension needs to be relaxed out of the fabric when it's laying waiting to be cut. This is critical for fabrics with stretch. If it's not relaxed completely, the cut panel will shrunk after it's cut.
Based on the photo I'd guess two colors were relaxed completely before cutting and two were not quite there and resulted in shorter inseams vs the other two colors.
Clothing is a hand made product and variations will exist from piece to piece. Tolerance depends on brands don't know what they might have for inseams. I'd be surprised if these fall within Spec. 100% If you're not happy, let them know and see what they can suggest to address what you see.
I had this happen on the waist with Jcrew tech shorts that arrived yesterday. One size fits perfectly. The other would rupture my appendix if i tried to put them on
Old navy is the worst at this. Some of my slim fit pants are actually slim fit while other skins are as big as their loose fit
Imagine having 4 chinos 2 of which are basically the same colour
I have 7 pairs of chinos from Bonobos. Same style, size, and fit. They all fit differently. It's so annoying.
I have an expensive Bonobos tie on order. It is the color I want but I’m embarrassed by the brand
This was explained to me by someone in the trade once... I’ll try to summarize. Most clothing manufacturers use automated cutting tools. Instead of cutting one pair at a time, they stack a big pile of fabric and chop it. Consequently, there’s some fluctuations from the true pattern as material on the top pulls or gives. Additionally, there’s a contractual allowance for error, on top of sizing that is based in vanity or heaven knows what. Plus, potential for shrink in post assembly laundering. It all boils down to slack quality control.
The finish used was not meant to be exposed to that level of heat. There may be little you can do; but give a solution of baking soda and warm water a try, being careful not to spread the colouring further.
Never wash trainers in the washing machine.
You can also get colour correction liquid that you leave the garmet/footwear to soak.
Had blue stains on my white and black printed tee from a coloured hoodie, left it in the liquid with water to soak and came out with no traces of blue.
how does he breathe
I get it that muscular dudes want to show off but fuck man , thats too tight . It looks like you wore these before you started working out and you got muscles .
You would probably look better naked because this outfit is not working .
It’s a European cut
This dude was going for the latex body suit look.
Business meeting, horse riding, scuba diving, casually dying of asphyxia... that’s a look for the connoisseurs!
Guys always dress like that in the UK. Skin tight jeans, Chelsea boots, and a black shirt that's too tight.
Can I just say, ya... no.
Dude looks like he is trying to hard to show off. Lole go up a size.
This looks horrendous.
I can see how the shirt might work- but the pants look awful
This guy's quads 😶

You ask a girl out wearing this, she'll ask you to do your hair while helping her pick her new boyfriend. And rightly so.
I mean I like wearing tight shirts to show off as well but damn, at least make sure that it actually fits. You can have really tight shirts that don’t look like they’re 2 sizes too small.
That is way too tight. Bro might RIP his shit.

My dad gave me these https://imgur.com/a/8AfZMbAblack AE McAllisters a long time ago. He was a shoe sales manager at Nordstrom in the late 80's.
I don't wear them all that often, but I want to see about having them touched up. I don't believe they need to be sent in to AE to be recrafted yet, but the uppers are definitely in need of some TLC. the leather is quite wrinkled and scrunched in certain spots. The current sole is still in good shape.
Should I take these to my local cobbler? He is pretty good at touch ups. Is there anything he can do about the wrinkles?
Also, I just purchased the Walnut St. John's at the SF AE shop 2 days ago. I plan on wearing these shoes and a matching AE belt with this suit for my wedding in 2 months. Pretty fucking excited!!!
