I'm a Bill's Khakis fan and own many pairs of Original Twills in all colors. I recently picked up a pair of Bill's in Mushroom and they look fantastic. Mushroom is really Olive. I totally dislike British Khaki - I wound up giving away my pair to Goodwill. British Khaki is a wierd brown that doesn't work wtih anything.

Spent some time trying to decide between Kamik boots and LL Bean Duck shoes.
At the end of the day, I chose Kamik boots because it is functionally a better design. These Kamik boots look and feel great. Most importantly, in wet and cold weather - the Kamik boots keep your feet warm. When I've owned Bean boots in the past, they've always pinched a bit at the heel and around the ankle.

Spent a bunch of time looking at tote bags. Finally decided on the $90 small filson tote bag. I absolutely love this bag. I looked at all the various Filson bags at first it seemed way too small. Now that I'm using it, I can't image schlepping the a larger bag around. Sid Mashburn likes the oil cloth tote bag Mashburn says: "Filson’s oil tin cloth tote ($98), is 'kind of like a golden-era movie star — rugged and classically handsome'". The oil cloth tote bag is huge.
