 I do not frequent this thread the same as I used to, so have not heard anything about this spray-on lacquer finish.  What is it? 
 The only way this is a valid question is if @europrep had Aaron fit him in person.  Otherwise, I'm not sure how you compare emailing pictures of a trial suit with having a tailor measure and fit you in person.  I'm a KW fan, but I'd much rather have a tailor measure and fit me in person than rely on the picture exchange method (assuming the tailor has the requisite skill, which is not always the case with all MTM outfits).
  I will have to give serious thought to whether I will send another pair of AE's in for re-crafting.  I sent a pair of chukka's in a few years ago that returned with a deep scratch very prominently placed in the center of the toe.  I did not say anything because I naively thought I could polish over it.  It was too deep and remains very prominently on the toe of the boots. Chalking the first instance up to bad luck, I sent a pair of Walnut Strands in for re-crafting...
 I usually give my KW jackets a few days hanging up before I wear them.  I've had some that arrived clean and ready to go and others where the lapel was wonky and needed a few days to settle down.
   The one gift card exclusion applies to shell cordovan and Edward Green.     Just kidding.
 I have a suede Carmina belt that is awesome.   Love it.
@rnguy001 I've long admired this watch and would love to see a wrist shot the next time you wear it that is a little further back and more accurately shows how it wears on your wrist.
 I like the Italian calfskin ones from Brooks Brothers.  About $90 during one of the many 30% off sales. AE belts are a little wide for a dress belt to wear with a suit.
   This.  The sale is technically from an AD with a stamped warranty card that is valid, which is different from how it usually is with a grey market vendor like Jomashop.
 The only thing I'll add is that several of the German grey market dealers on chrono24 will sell you a new Orion for 25 - 30% off the retail price.  I used mychrono a few weeks ago and was very pleased with the transaction.  Before buying used, I would at least check out what a new version will cost you.
