    Just bought some TAD Intercept jeans...and they are incredibly comfortable. I cannot recommend them enough. I take a 34/32 and the fit is spot-on, the added elastane is effective and the material feels light and 'different' to what I have been used to. Impressive.

    Probably some Pendleton wool shirts. At the time i felt like a pretentious tool for buying them due to the expense, but I quickly realize there is a huge difference between a well made shirt thats pricey and something that isn't well made and is cheap.

    5 years later these Pendleton shirts show no wear at all despite seeing lots of use in the winter months. Same with my other expensive clothing purchases.

    Stuff I bought that was under 40 bucks or so? Most of that stuff lasted a year or two at most.

    so hows the fit on those? tight? loose? Im somewhere between a 32 and a 33, and am not sure if i should size up or stick with a 32 inch waist.

    did they shrink after washing?

    I would say they are a tighter fit than say, Carhartt jeans, but the 'give' in them makes them very comfortable. I am pretty much a 34" Carhartt jeans guy and these fit me spot-on.

    Definitely worth a try-on.

    Don’t know if it counts as clothing but Red Wing boots are the only boots I will ever buy. After getting my first pair and having a excellent time with the guys in the store and being able to take them in to get oiled whenever I need is awesome.

    For outdoor gear, my Montane Extreme smock, I've lived in that for a solid year and owned it for just over 10 and apart from a little stitching going, a couple of stains and a small hole or two it's like new.

    Absolutely bombproof, very warm and keeps you remarkably dry for a non waterproof. Full side zips help cool you off when you get a little toasty!

    One downside is it is pile so it's a bugger to carry if you're not wearing it.

    Merino wool, icebreaker, helly and woolpower, great stuff.

    And finally Fjallraven trousers, again comfortable and just seem to go on for ever.

    Duluth buck naked underwear
    Poly/cotton blend T-shirt’s (don’t shrink but also don’t get all staticky like performance shirts )
    Thin wool socks (I have hot feet)
    Duluth Alaskan Hardgear clothes are all awesome.

    I've been meaning to post in this thread for a while. i have had a real eye opening clothing purchase recently.

    Uniqlo AIRism. They say "UNIQLO and Toray Industries came together to combine unique knit structures with microscopic engineering. This special technology utilises dry silk-like micro-polyester fibres that wick perspiration off the skin and move it through open channels within the AIRism yarn.
    It is designed to work in harmony with you."

    All I know is that if I was an Apple product I would be the iSweat, but with these AIRism things I seem to stay cool all day long. I've bought their shirts (button down Oxfords), t shirts, polo shirts and now jeans. I could not be happier!

    These incredible Fjallraven no. 5 shorts. The perfect EDC short. Yeah, they're pricey, but for warm summer adventures there is nothing better!!!! Here's a picture from when I got them. Not for everyone but I love them. And the orange is fun too!!![​IMG]

    Lunaire Coolmax bra - as a woman, a comfortable bra is what I would consider my most important piece of clothing. After years of searching and spending lots of money pn ones that weren’t comfortable, I found one I could comfortably wear for 16+ hours while working and for physical activity.

    Rikumo wool tabi socks - I wear sandals everyday unless it is too cold, which was usually about 40F. Now I comfortably wear sandals as long as it is above freezing.
