Look forward to your further comments, DJosef. Thank you.
Thanks.
Thank you, Sander. If so, I may be willing to go up to 450-500 euros. Are there any particular places for finding good leather jackets in Berlin that you'd recommend to visit, anyway? Thanks again.
I shall be visiting Berlin in early October. Looking to get real quality (German-made) leather jacket while there. Preferably vintage, although a brand new one would be considered, too. The spending budget could be up to 350 euros if it helps. Can anyone recommend a good place to look? Thanks.

If you really would like to explore completely different 'universe' (and not only high-end traditional shaving creams), then try to take a closer look at "Reviews - Badger & Blade". You shouldn't be disappointed. http://badgerandblade.com/vb/forumdisplay.php?f=37 Enjoy.
Gentlemen, I wonder if anyone here would be kind enough to recommend a couple of places in Chicago for purchasing really good quality RTW shoes (Edward Green, John Lobb etc). Actually, this short note goes on behalf of my very good friend over there (who happens to be a writer), not myself. His possible spending budget for such pair of shoes would be up to $900 - $1,000. Thanks for any practical input in advance.
