Yup, I think the original quote is "A man should look as if he dressed himself carefully, and then forgot all about it." If you're being finicky in your outfit, however nice it is, others will notice your discomfort.   As for the negative comments, I rarely even justify them with a verbal response. It's quite clear to my friends and peers that I spend more money on, and know/care more about, clothing and the like. Every time I wear something that they don't understand,...
The criticism is probably due to the fact that I'm in college, so my friends are mostly goofball 20ish year old kids who are scared to wear anything besides jeans.   As for conquering something a bit more wild, just rock it. How many men do you know who would even consider buying a pair of shoes like that? Hell, how many men do you know who are even aware that such shoes can be made? Just being an active member of a site like SF has put you ahead of the game, so own it...
My calf/suede through Epaulet have been at my cobbler for over a month, because he ran out of toe taps    And that wouldn't have posed a problem for the Dainite-soled scotchgrain pair from Epaulet...if there hadn't been a mixup that resulted in my pair not getting made    I've paid for four pairs of boots (and a pair of oxfords) since July, and still haven't seen a single pair of them, as I wasn't even the one to drop off my calf/suede pair at the cobbler. All I saw was...
Great, thank you!
^ That is my nightmare. 
I finally have something to contribute to this thread! I ordered this over four months ago back in early August, but had to wait because there was a shortage of my choice in wood. The wait was rough, but I got to end the semester by coming home to this beauty: Swaine Adeney Brigg umbrella, solid oak handle/shaft, 27" ribs, initialed silver collar.                   Let's just say I intend to make some pretty girls very happy...
So just a button attached via a loop on its back, rather than a set of holes through which the stitching is pushed?
Holy hell, that's a magnificent display of cognac shell.
Econ 101, folks: They're splitting the market. It might not be good for general brand name, but if they still make higher quality shirts at their regular prices, and they can also sell lower quality shirts at lower prices, they make more money.   Obviously now they deal with the issue of people like those in this thread wondering about quality and if the high price is still worth it, but as long as those expensive shirts get bought up, I wouldn't be surprised if they were...
I don't have my ruby brogues (yet...they come tomorrow), but my first big step out of what's "normal" was probably my double monks from Epaulet. Wearing them was kind of weird the first time, because they were my only my second pair of nice leather shoes, and they were a bit "out there."   My friends gave me shit for them for a little while, but I felt nothing but love for the shoes after my first time wearing them, and my friends soon clammed up; some of them now even...
