I need to just make my rounds at these places. I think i'm just not at the point where I can walk in to Ralph Lauren and buy black label stuff at...
If you are in Boston, try these two Filene's Basement stores. Both stores usually have a limited selection of Oxxford suits, which are highly thought of here. (Search the word "Oxxford" if you wish). They also have a "Vault" section, which consists of prior season merchandise from high-end stores across America. There may be other suit brands there that you like. If you don't find something you like, but are still in the market for a suit, go back every...

So what is the consensus? I have some pictures below. The trees I use are the Johnston + Murphy Washburn (same as the one sold on cedarville), if that...
I nominate this thread for the "making a mountain out of a molehill" thread of the year! Why don't you read the eBay listing for the shoes again, this time focusing where it states: "YOUR SATISFACTION IS 100% GUARENTEED!!." What do you think that term means, other than "send them back if you don't like them?" So, here's what you should do if you don't like the shoes.
