At least within a college environment, I can vouch for this. I'm really hoping that the girls will grow out of it as they mature, but at my age the preferred relationship seems to consist of a mentality akin to "Oh he's kind of a mess, but I like to keep him around." As soon as these girls deal with someone who actually cares and knows about clothing, and commits money to it, the "power" that they observe in the relationship shifts away from them. No longer is the guy...
1. What is a "waterfall sleeve"? 2. To what do "open channel" and "heel nail" refer in the context of shoes?
I completely agree. An Epaulet pair of Carminas, whether it be stock or MTO, will run ~$200 more than a similar style purchased directly. I'll gladly put forth that extra money to (1) get the model/design that I like, (2) get wonderful customer service, and (3) support growing local businesses. Given how helpful and attentive Mike and his associates are, I have no qualms with them taking a healthy cut, especially since they're equally glad to give back in the form of free...
It's quite simple: While one bad experience might turn you off from a brand for good, none (or at least most) of us have had to deal with anything even remotely as bad. So to us, Carmina is still something that provides great products at an arguably unbeatable price point.   Not to mention that it's in my opinion that AE has a lackluster finish in comparison with the few pairs of Carminas I've handled.
Cool cool, thanks!
Agreed. I don't understand how anyone can say they're trying to compete with EG/G&G, and that price isn't an issue; it absolutely is an issue, and is in fact the single most important issue.   It's simple: Pay more, get more. Carminas can be had for less than half of the cost of the aforementioned brands, and it seems silly to expect the same product for a far lower price.   With that being said, what happened to Moo sounds pretty messed up, and we can only hope it was a...
^ Ah, thanks! How do you get PRL for $35 each? Retail is like $150, and I can't imagine sales being that drastic.
Having a reputation definitely helps. If you've built up some craziness over time, it's easier to "get away with" new things, because your colleagues know what to expect.
What do you mean by "boxers class"?
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,...
