I'm on the tighter side of medium in shirts, and a 38 Doyle was a bit uncomfortable in the shoulders, so I went for a 40. It's a bit more relaxed in the waist area, but whatever. Also, there were samples of the private label boots and shoes mentioned earlier, and they were bonkers. Bison/bull(?) leathers, vibram soles, really tough.
Totally enjoyed my visit. So cool talking to Mike and Adele, as well as guys (and gals) coming to the store. Hung out there till about 4pm, almost got late to the event in DTLA - the traffic was pretty heavy. Found myself buying a pair of Hawthornes, grey Wilshires, camo chinos, grey sneakers, a couple tees (thanks Mike!), a scarf, a Lunchino, and an olive Doyle.
Carmina was such a deal, holy cow.
Hey Mike, a tactless question: the SM discounts are not applicable to sale items, are they? I just picked up some walt shorts from the sale section, they're being shipped from the SM store, so I just got curious if I should have waited till I'm in store to grab them
Wait... A hundred for a pair of sneakers? That doesn't seem to align with the discount percentage published earlier.
Anyway, 2.5 months left before I fly back home and I only have 1 (wearable) pair of sneakers here, so I hope I'll be able to grab a brown and/or grey one.
