Pull tab on my Chelsea boots ripped the second time I put them on Wasn't even yanking that hard. Will have to see if a shoe repair place can construct new tabs or something.
I love Chipp ties. I've found a few vintage ones in thrift stores over the years—sharks, nautical flags (permission to lay alongside), IITYWTMWYBMAD (if I tell you what this means will you buy me a drink), and "piss and vinegar."   Two others I found but could never decode: santa sitting on the toilet and some sort of tree emblem, inside a circle (perhaps a company logo?). Any hints what these might be, @chippneckwear?   Planning an order now, knits and grenadines....
Should I "weatherproof" my suede 5 zip with some kind of spray protectant? Does that even do anything?    Don't want to have to baby it, but don't want to have to pull a Seinfeld either.    
Man this thing is awesome. Brookline Jacket - Multi Color Indian Embroidery

In for three raffle tickets. Pretty great fundraising idea.   Odd sizes only is a weird choice (9, 11, 13). Not that I'd wear them around anyway I guess. 
Really glad to see new Taylors in stock. Ordered two, bringing my Taylor collection to 6:   Tobacco Calvary Twill Oxford Grey Flannel Light Gray Hopsack MTO Navy Hopsack Wool Stormcloud Wool-Silk-Linen Olive Military Twill (fell victim to a crappy washing machine, RIP)     The perfect ready-to-wear CM trouser. Thanks @Epaulet!
Howard Stern interviewed Metallica earlier this week and they talked about this exact t-shirt design, funny enough! Great find.
I can't understand the #menswear dress-down-a-CM-coat-and-tie-with-jeans thing. Same thing with pairing slick dress shoes and denim. I know people say, "Andy Warhol did it," but it's such a jarring incongruity.    (Not to pick on one poster, but this is the latest example I've noticed)
