 Thanks for sharing this.  I did the same with the Butteros and got a black pair (oddly enough about the only pair I don't already have).  I would just add that if you use eBates it's 3% back or better yet if you have a Discover Platinum card and use Discover Deals it's 5% back.  
 I'll echo the sentiment that the strap you have is a great option, especially if it's a matte alligator.  Even if it's not it will break in over time.  I think the alligator is a better option than a non-distressed leather strap as well assuming the leather was going to be rather plain.  Congratulations.  Very good price considering it's the black.  I was looking at Black Bays about 2-3 weeks ago and while I wasn't shopping for a black it was definitely trending higher...
 Damn.  I never clicked on that link as I thought it was just generic measurements.  The just switched things up on me.  Thanks for pointing that out!
 Don't get me wrong, I'm sure it's a relatively time consuming process and as you note the measurements may not be made the same way the consumer would.  Still I find it helpful with some brands that I'm not familiar with and in my case it's not like I'm in a market where I can just go try on a lot of brands that interest me.  Of course none of that is End's problem and they have a business to run on top of them surely being willing to provide measurements upon request....
 For what the product is, I agree.  However their markup is so high that they must be making margins on a good portion of it.  If they simply control their inventory better I would think that RRL has a future.  
 It has nothing to do with "sale time" and I wasn't inquiring with them.  Had I done so I would have expected them.  From what I've seen this season they don't have many (if any?) measurements where just last season and for years before they did.  I didn't ask.  On top of that their not providing measurements makes me less inclined to buy in some cases as returning shipping from the States isn't cheap and some brands sizing can change over time.  
Banana Republic has an excellent sale going on in store and today is the last day.  I know it's not a very Styleforum approved brand, but they have great basics, offer great value in some cases and I found a few gems yesterday.  I went in for basics and thought I'd check out the shorts as they had some cool prints (an ikat and this "tile print" in linen) when I walked in.  Here's how it works:   -40% off if you spend $200 after promotional disounts and before sales tax...
 Well it was a bit rushed.  I wanted to hit Marshall Pierce, Swiss Fine Timing and the Omega Boutique.  I had two hours on the meter which was about 5 blocks from Michigan Avenue.  The only catch after that was that Swiss Fine Timing was about another 4 blocks or so south of the other two.  Plenty to see between those three places, but next time I'll skip Swiss Fine Timing (depending on what I'm looking for) and spend more time at Marshall Pierce.  The catch there is that...
 End apparently can't be bothered for measurements anymore.
 I've only seen you post a few pieces.  I haven't been on for the past two years though so that's probably why.  Either way quality over quantity and I'm interested in great looking watches regardless of their complications.   Wow, that's quite the get together.    Thanks!  I was actually in Chicago myself.  I drove down and was able to snag meter parking, but that limited my time.  Like I said in my post Nomos was the main reason I went down, however had I known I wasn't...
