Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I love these pants, I'm on my second pair and the fit is what keeps me coming back. It's a true straight slim, if you order the size you normally wear they'll fit slim but not extremely tight like you're a super hardcore punk rock skater kid, becuase we can't all be that cool.

This is especially nice if you've got built legs, but still like the slim-fit. This pant doesn't resemble a sausage casing when worn by someone that doesn't have bird legs.

The Material is nice and smooth with a good amount of stretch. You can move pretty well in these pants.

I'll be buying this model till they discontinue it.

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

If you respect that dude who pulls up at the local gas station in full camo with a matching pickup truck and a 12-point buck chillin in the back, then you'll probably dig this hat. The classic stitched graphics are a throwback to a different era, they reek of coolness. Have you seen the eagle? AMERUCAH!!

The snap-back gives you plenty of adjustability so you can dial in he right fit. That being said this is a big hat. The front is tall and deep, if you have a large cranium you won't have a problem fitting into this lid. If you have a smaller head (like me) it could be a little overwhelming. If you're motivated to rock this hat you'll make it work though.

The corduroy material is pretty thick and there are no venting holes, so this hat holds the heat in. Great for fall and winter. The lining has a quality feel, it should hold up well.

Choose your spirit animal wisely or you'll have to buy them all!

Coal makes awesome winter headwear and their ballcaps don't disappoint either. The classic snapback gives you all the adjustability you need to get the ideal fit. The clean understated graphic has quality stitching and should look good for the life of the hat. The brim comes perfectly flat but not so stiff that a slight bend can't be made depending on personal preference. Solid all around.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Picked these up this past May to be my everyday around-town pair of glasses. They're super light-weight and stay put on my face pretty darn well for a non wrap-around style frame. The styling is spot on, the frames aren't obscenely large but are bigger than a traditional Rayban, a perfect middle ground in my opinion. Construction is just nylon grilamid so they don't have the acetate feel that a lot of people love. Doesn't bother me personally but they aren't going to be an especially tough frame. That being said, I haven't been gentle on these glasses and the are holding up just fine. The lenses seem to be a bit prone to collecting dirt and fingerprints, so be prepared to have a cleaning cloth handy if you like your lenses to be spick and span. My only concern with this frame is the removable temples, I'm just not sure how many times the hinge and temple pieces are going to be able to handle he removal process. You just have to be very deliberate and careful while switching the temples. Solid overall piece, would recommend to anybody looking for some casual and stylish eye-wear.
