My two cents on Indochino: Attended a Style Forum Meet-Up at the San Francisco store. Among the many retailers who have hosted Meet-Ups and Trunk shows, Indochino offered the most exaggerated trendy design and the poorest quality garments. Admittedly, even if they were beautifully made and exuded quality, their style, would never appeal to my conservative taste.
Unless it has changed recently, STF does not offer cash refunds, only store credits and/or exchanges. Several years ago I ordered pants that were obviously miss sized, they were so far off. I used the credit a year later at their brick and mortar store. BTW, if you are inLA, a visit the the STF store/warehouse is well worth it. Huge selection, well-organized.

Is it incorrect for morning dress? No. So there's nothing incorrect about a buff or cream vest...
I'll be there.
"The mood of the '70s I find to be the most exciting in terms of where I live mentally." I think that just about sums it up...UGH.  [/quote] He omitted any reference to Cocaine I remember the 70s, but I wore Chipp.
Actually, Alan Edmonds, Alden and Crockett and Jones come in wide: 3E or G widths. I believe that some models of Church come in 4E or H width. Dinkelacker, not sold in the US, comes in 3E and 4E in some lasts. The problem is that perhaps except for Allen Edmonds, US retailers rarely stock 2E or 3E width. I wear 4E running shoes (trainers)' My last successful dress shoe purchase was from Ludwig Reiter in Vienna. The model that worked for me was not denominated is widths,...
