Any thoughts on the quality? Often mentioned in the same breath as Brioni in suit conversations here and my favorite ties are Brioni wovens. Nordstrom seems to be clearing house on them with multiples styles/colors at $50.
College student go with the Wolverine, the leather will be a bit harder wearing than an Alden boot (even if marginally less nice). Given the terrible things that are basically guaranteed to happen to it, there is a good amount of value there. Also, you probably have great uses for an extra $125.    However, if you basically want a replacement for buying captoe/wingtip shoes, you might want to look into a more formal boot. Chelseas if you are in a city or laceup wingtip...
Awesome. Should have just gotten the bundle :)
Can someone confirm that the portfolio fits a Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Carbon. I've had problems with 13" Mac cases in the past despite the listed dimensions being at 13.03" x 8.92" x 0.53" (Front)-0.77" (Rear).   Don't worry guys - already backed the card case and portfolio but literally my whole office would get the portfolio if our laptops will fit.
Problem solved. Thank you crowdfunding.   http://www.styleforum.net/t/417448/linjer-leather-goods-official-affiliate-thread
Got a new wallet but the card slots are slightly too small for my business cards, so need a card case. Sounds like leather is the way to go. Looking for relatively conservative (no alligator unfortunately), no (or very subtle) maker's mark and thin case with high quality leather. Don't love the BB shell, Alden is a bit thick. All the "etsy" makers like Mitchell like to stamp big, beautiful inappropriate for the finance world contrasting logos on everything.   Willing to...
Over the last few years this forum has really helped me develop my personal style. However, for most of that time, I lived in a suit and spent the majority of my shopping time and money on high-quality tailored clothing and leather goods. However, a move from NYC to Boston later, I'm in an environment with a lot more streetwear, and would like to adapt my closet instead of continuing to be a brightly colored New England prep as the seasons change.   Have a couple items I...
Honestly, I'd spent the gift cards on a replacement item like shoe trees, fragrances - it may not be on sale but assuming you will wear it not a bad way to burn gift card currency.   I haven't bought a department store suit, shirt or sport coat in years (menswear specialist, at almost every price point, deliver much better quality/price). That being said they have a side selection of AE, even if you don't want to buy shoes they have discounts on belts (AE is the only...
Is it just me or did BB take price across the board on staples (shirts/suits)? At the same time they seem to be heavily discounting some of the seasonal/fashionable stuff (assuming they just missed trend).   Unclear what the rationale is here - menswear is more competitive than ever with RL pushing into tailored Polo with lots of retail store openings. If this was 2010 you could make a case based on cotton prices. But with overall weak traffic trends and limited uptick...
Really dumb question. I just replaced my favorite pair of BB cordovan loafers with the lined Alden equivalent. I fly frequently and generally go through the TSA Precheck line (where you can keep shoes on). The Aldens set the metal detector off, where the BB loaders didn't. Anyone know why this is?   And for those who will say loafers are meant to be slipped off I sometimes go sockless and don't cherish the thought to walking barefoot on that floor.
