H2H Mens Formal Slim Fit Premium Business Dress Suit Button Down Vests BROWN US L/Asia XL (CMOV031)

4.0 out of 5 stars A sharp vest; be careful with sizing., July 19, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I go 5'8", 155 lbs., 41" chest. I bought this in L and the Zicac Mens New Top Designed Casual Skinny Dress Wedding Vest Waistcoat (L/Asia Tag 3XL, Brown) in 3X -- I lucked out with both. This H2H vest fits about true to size, mostly. I only have a hint of a gut, and the L is slightly roomy in the armpit / chest, yet is somewhat tight in the middle (hence the four stars rather than five). If you're slim, order your usual size. If you're slightly beer heavy, order a size up. The vest's front material is a fairly thin rayon / polyester blend, but it looks good if not truly sharp. The inner material and back is satin, according to the product description. All told, this vest makes me look goooood.

This is a classy, sharp-looking waistcoat, but be careful with sizing. I'm 5'8", 155 lbs, with a 41" chest, and I often fall between M and L (American). The XXXL (3X) vest fits just about perfectly, especially when I wear a slim fit dress shirt; a 42" chest would be awfully close. If you're a 42" chest, only buy the 3X if you have a slim torso and don't put on winter weight. Otherwise, if you're anywhere north of 42" or are a typical American L, go with the 4X at least.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yes, this is what you're looking for., July 16, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I'm serious about caring for my leather shoes and boots, only to have them abused and attacked by dust bunnies on my tiny closet floor. The Boot Butler lifts my harness and cowboy boots out of the chaos, and I'm happy to trade the foot or so of horizontal rack space for that. My only suggestion for improvement would be a custom slipcover of some sort, but that's small potatoes.

40R / 34

I go 5'8", 155 to 160 lbs., with a 32 or 33" waist. It's very hard to achieve the "slim fit" look on my body. The 40R is a touch roomy in both jacket and pants, but it's close enough to that London look. You'll likely need to hem the pants (thanks for the lessons, Mom!), and I'm tempted to try taking in the jacket. If that doesn't work out, I'll probably give a 38R a try. At this price point, and with returns this easy, why wouldn't I?

The material is relatively good quality, but I suspect that overall it doesn't hold a candle to high-end or bespoke suits. But for my small-town needs, anything that's in the ballpark of looking sharp will do. This suit fits the bill and then some.

This review is from: U.S. Military Arctic Mitts
These are the mitts you've been looking for. I shovel lots of Wyoming snow and am a four season bike commuter. Most of my old Goretex mittens and gloves get cold and wet, and I always wind up with snow or cold air on my wrists. These bad boys fix all of that. These are hands-down the warmest, hardiest, and handiest pair of mittens I've ever seen. On extra cold days (single digits F), I'll wear a thinner set of gloves and there's still enough dexterity to handle a shovel or shift the bike, although fiddling with the car radio is not possible.

5.0 out of 5 stars Recommended, with sizing tips., January 17, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I have the 9.0 - 10.5 / 42 - 44, and they fit over my Garneau MultiRX (EUR 44) bike shoes almost perfectly. HOWEVER, I also use these covers for commuting, and they barely fit over my US size 9 Keen and ECCO work shoes. If you wear a US men's 9.5 or larger and intend to use these over work shoes, you'll probably want to go a size up from the 42 - 44.

I'm impressed with their performance, although I've only had them since Christmas 2015. I've commuted in single digit temps (F) and my feet stayed far warmer than usual. I also used them with my fat bike yesterday, and with double-layered socks in the Garneau's, I was fine at 20 degrees F, even after trudging through some deeper powder.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is the one for us!, July 13, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
For my purposes, this saw is ideal. All three of my neighbors own trees that hang over the fence line, sometimes to an annoying degree. I went with a corded saw because our yard isn't huge, and also because I don't trust batteries for larger power tools like this. I've just stepped inside after using the saw for the first time, and here are my impressions:

Pros:
Definitely cuts through sizable, hard-to-reach limbs with relative ease.
Easy to assemble (but you WILL need to buy bar and chain oil separately.) That's an easy purchase here or at your favorite local hardware store.

Cons:
It does get slightly heavy after a while, but it's not terrible.
The bottom of the saw gets clogged with junk. I went after some small, green stuff that I probably shouldn't have (having too much fun, I guess) and cleaning the debris out of the saw was a pain in the keister.

I'm posting some pics, which don't really do justice to this saw's ability.

3.0 out of 5 stars Meh. There are equally effective oils / cremes at half the price., April 11, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I wasn't impressed with this oil's scent, and its performance wasn't noticeably different from other oils I've tried. Then again, I'm moving away from shaving oils and returning to Proraso pre-shave cremes and shaving soaps.

4.0 out of 5 stars 5 stars for efficacy, 3 stars for scent, April 11, 2014
Like so many others, I'm new to wet shaving after years of cartridges, foams, and cheap aftershaves. I wanted to try L'Occitan's shave balm after having great experiences with other balms like Geo. Trumper's Lime and other L'Occitan products like their men's shower gel.

This product performs beautifully. A small dab goes a very long way, and it definitely reduces irritation. At this price point, I expect an aftershave balm to be noticeably if not impressively effective, and it is both.

However, its scent is a major disappointment. I was hoping it would carry the same strong juniper scent as the shower gel, but it doesn't even come close. In fact, to my untrained nose, it smells like something you'd buy in the local grocery store out of desperation on a road trip. I guess it's vaguely floral, but more than anything it smells like chemicals. Again -- that could just be me and my unsophisticated ways (I really do have a very dull palate and sense of smell).

5.0 out of 5 stars The only men's L'Occitane product worth the money., April 11, 2014
I was looking for a shower gel that was masculine yet complex. In other words, I didn't want to smell like a high school locker room. This stuff doesn't necessarily lather like mass-produced body washes, but its scent compensates for that. It's long on juniper with other complex woodsy undertones, and I've never experienced anything quite like it.

L'Occitane's pre-shave oil and aftershave balm do NOT have precisely the same scent, which was a major disappointment after I'd put down serious cash on each. In fact, I've decided to not even try the shaving cream after those two mishaps.
