Hello everyone!   Just thought it would be worth dropping by here to mention that Federal Store in Washington, DC has 40% our remaining Alden models, the unlined Dover blucher in brown chromexcel (29364F), the plain toe blucher in sand suede (29332F), and the unlined chukkas in snuff suede (1493) .     phone orders are welcome!   202-518-3375 
Finally, the long awaited delivery of FW has arrived at Federal DC!    Items should be on the site shortly, but here is a list of what we have received -    Shirting:    Spread collar shirt (black/check) S-L $228 Spread collar shirt (dark navy) S-L $275 19th Century BD (navy polka dot) S-XL $240 Long bush shirt (navy) S-XL $240   Jackets:   Bedford (navy moleskin) S-L $395 Bedford (olive moleskin) S-XL $395 Baker (Charcoal wool gabardine) S-L...
Was going to say the same thing actually, I work at Federal, and though we haven't gotten our FW shipment in quite yet, it should be in any day and I'd be happy to answer any questions  and help some fellow DC folk out 
That 2060 sole swap sounds like it would look real nice. I did a similar maneuver on a pair of black redwing 101 oxfords, with a vibram 2021 in sand (just slightly thicker than 2060s) and have been loving the results. Significantly more comfortable than a christy, especially since I'm using them as work shoes, where I stand on my feet hours at a time. Bought the soles myself off ebay for about $20 I believe, and a local cobbler only charged me $45 just for the labor
Any other promising flannel work shirts in store for this season?    also, pardon if this gets asked a lot, but can we expect standard olive fatigue pants this season as well, specifically in a reversed sateen? 
EG newb here, first item I copped have been this seasons fatigue shorts in that olive ripstop fabric (the ones posted in the gentry link above) and I absolutely love them. Anyone else own the same pair, or anything else with that fabric? Just curious how it wears, whether or not it will soften up with wash and wear, or even crock like the bedford posted a few days ago. Just curious, and definitely beyond impressed with the shorts either way 
^ Personally, I would say what I think has been mentioned in this thread before, is that the brand has something for everyone, but in the sense where the the pieces are easily adaptable to a variety of wardrobes. Many single items can work for a variety of fits and styles and be worn multiple ways, and that level of versatility is something that very few other brands could ever match. 
Kidcoin is as legit as they come, definitely recommend getting your pair from him if you are in the market. Worth nothing though, the pair I received is definitely of lower quality than a previous pair that I owned.. The pleather is meh, there is a very significant amount of excess glue on the front of the shoe, and the tongues are not even the same length, with about a 1/2" difference between the right and the left. Not things that are a huge deal, especially considering...
Hi Gary, any bedford jackets this season? 
Could somebody point me towards a dayton shirt in a Medium? either the gray stripped or chambray. Have I missed my chance, or may they come back around for F/W with different materials?
