    does anyone know any alternatives to the website http://www.domestic.fr? It's a site that has a lot of different 'wall stickers' (large works by various pop-artists made especially for sticking onto a wall) but is ridiculously expensive with even pricier shipping (to Aus). Either that or someone in France who will proxy? I would rather a complete alternative though.

    All the stuff from Colette & friends is ridiculously overpriced and totally not worth it, in my opinion. Better look for a realistic alternative unless you've got money to spend.

    so guys i really don't know where to put this but i need some advice :)

    is it possible to stretch a jean back to his "normal" length?

    asking cuz i have the feeling that my LVC1944 are too short after soak+wash...
    they are long enough to wear uncuffed but if i want to cuff they have to be a bit longer so that the cuffing still looks good...
    i've tried it once by pulling the legs but not really much happened...

    any advices?
    maybe soaking or washing the jean again and then try to stretch them back with pulling the legs till they've reached their normal length...!?

    thx in advance

    all i can think of is to pull it out while still damp, so you might wanna soak it again (for a fair while, too) then pull the bejesus out of the legs. it's not something i really have a problem with tho, since my stumpy legs are always glad for a little leg shrinkage, but i'm pretty sure that damp stretching will be your best bet ;-)

    ^yeah this might be the best for getting a bit length out of these again.

    so damp stretching goes over dry stretching?...

    one question to all of you style pro´s :). I am looking after a nice raw denim jacket. I know the ones from fh, ih, nudie... Should be a straight or slim cut and not too expensive. Are there any other nice denim jackets? If yes, please give me some examples. Thx in advance...

    Have you ever seen ALD's Denim Jackets? Could be a bit difficult to get hold of one for a reasonable price, though...

    have a look on rakuten, search for '101j' and you'll get some ok lee repro jackets very cheap. they're not world beaters, they're made in china, but they are dry selvage and they're pretty cool for what you'd pay- if price is an issue, they're a good option, only about 8300 yen because they're all on sale for half-price at the moment. some purists will sneer, but at a quarter of the price of all your top-line jackets, they're an ok buy.

    try this link, it's just one i saved, but if you search you'll find a whole lot more of them. i'd buy this myself but i already have a repro 101j.
