How is the Uniqlo trench in the rain? What's the fabric composition and does it actually repel water or just absorb it?
I picked up these shoes brand new a few months ago, and have decided that they aren't for me. Literally only wore them 5 times, so they have barely any wear. Kept in shoe trees in the box when not in use.   Includes two dust bags and shoebox. Shoe trees not included.   Price includes shipping within continental US, pm me for international rates or if you want more pictures.   200 -> 180.
I'm told that the next Friends and Family (25% off) will be the third week of september, and corporate incentive (30% for corporate incentive members) will be mid October.   I wasn't too jazzed by the fall Black Fleece collection, but it looked surprisingly good when I tried it on in store. My experience with a lot of Thom Browne and Black Fleece is that the pieces look like something I would never be able to pull off, then I try it on and change my mind.    I...
  I have a feeling you were never BBBF's target demographic. The whole point of BBBF was to introduce Brooks Brothers to a younger generation that for the most part had written it off as a stogy old man store. Hate on Thom Browne all you want but it's pretty clear that shorter jackets, narrower lapels, and higher pant lengths are on trend right now.    As for the fall 2012 collection, I'm not that into the oversized tartans, I think they look kind of bizarre on my frame....
  Pretty sure the ones I linked to have been around for at least two seasons, or are you talking about something else? I don't really follow this line.
I really like the prorsum ones:   http://us.burberry.com/store/trench-coats/mens-trench-coats/prorsum/prod-44555591-mid-length-cotton-trench-coat/   http://us.burberry.com/store/trench-coats/mens-trench-coats/prorsum/prod-44555541-cotton-military-trench-coat/   Cut a little slimmer than the heritage and london, but hard to justify at that price.
      I have a pair, and yes they smell terrible. Great for running and lifting but not exactly stylish. I'm seeing a lot more people wearing them on the street, but I live in San Francisco where anything that can be marketed as being more natural becomes an instant trend.
  Saw this thread on Reddit, sounds like Nordstrom is selling AE factory seconds for the sale.   http://www.reddit.com/r/malefashionadvice/comments/wwdi2/caveat_emptor_latin_for_check_yo_strands/
To answer some questions, the lapel is 2.25 inches, and the lapel roll is fine.           Apologies in advance for the wrinkles, cell phone, dirty mirror, and t-shirt. 
  Small for him, not for me. Both will probably be too short though.
