This week I received my first Filson bag, their Original Briefcase. Some two dozen threads were pointing at all directions, and the shoulder strap had dried and cracked, otherwise it's a well-thought-out-and-made thing. The canvas laughs a scorn to water as I tested it under a faucet, and the fabric seems solid enough. Those who've owned similar bags for years; will the canvas droop when the bag is mostly empty?
I believe it's Carmina own thin, smooth, and dressy rubber sole unit.
Isshi, you have just about the most interesting shüüs online from year to year. When can we see your favourite top 10 vintage pairs all in one pornographic money shot?
Of course you do because the world of style nerds is small. We are a peculiar and eccentric breed, and we have similar thoughts (which, to be honest, may be an equally good or bad thing).
Here be French bespoke monograms on a Lanvin/Marc Lauwers shirt:
Kindly note that the troubles with these four shirts are just the tip of the iceberg that punctured my vessel. I never wore the shirts during the five months because of the hardness, and I couldn't make up my mind whether to keep them or sell them on. As they were not worn or washed, they have not shrunk so the newest set should have fit the collarband. Luxire should have put buttons and buttonholes on the first spare set as it's mighty hard to source similar buttons on...
Alright, here's something I wasn't expecting: Ashish has cancelled all of my pending orders, including a nice Black Friday find.

Is it acceptable business conduct to deny any future services to a customer with an order history of 25 transactions? I can live without Luxire,...
So true! I only learned of this option now and it would have spared me from a world of trouble. Despite the "new nice" their webstore's functionality is still straight from the '90s.You're missing my point. This point is that, while all manufacturers make mistakes, these shouldn't happen several times in a row. It shows that the people in charge of quality control are not doing their job well at all, and it also makes a deep dent into a perceived image of quality. If the...
Luxire orders gone wrong I really should have better things to do, but I thought that by sharing my experiences, I could also ask if others have had similar ones. 1. I had four custom shirts made about a year-and-a-half ago. Details and measurements were like I'd come to expect from Luxire, but the collars and cuffs were cardboard-stiff when I had asked for unfused and stiff, but "not as stiff as my high club collar shirt has". These were rock-hard. I had asked for...
