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.
Turns out the AE Woven Chili belts get quite close and because they are multi-tone I can deal with the slight difference in shade better. http://www.zappos.com/allen-edmonds-woven-inlay   Thanks though.
Bump - would be interested, I have long arms (14.5/34 in BB) and VV doesn't fit. Love BB but can never find that really thick cloth I like as most of their OCBD appear to be lightweight (at the least the ones sold as dress shirts and not in S/M/L/XL sizing). Looks like Peter Millar does S/M/L/XL sizing as well, although I've never tried it doubt the arms fit.   Honestly, I still wear a couple of oxford shirts I got from Ruehl five years ago. Actually stepped into an...
Anyone have a favorite BB SA in Boston? Recently wandered into the Newbury store during the corporate sale last week and was pretty much ignored. Have a few big ticket purchases coming up and want to start developing a relationship, as apparently without one the New England cold shoulder is what I can expect.
So I just picked up a pair of C&J Handgrade Barrington's in the Tan Antique. I'm anal about my belts matching my shoes, and my current tan belt is too light. C&J's tan belt is also on the lighter side (sales rep said this is because the hand grades are a bit darker), it doesn't very match well now and will only get worse as the shoes are "antiqued" and will darken over time even with neutral...
