Quick question for all. I think it's the same, but does UK sizing = US sizing? The only reason I ask is because on Yoox, they have UK size as being +6 over US (i.e. 40UK = 34US). I have never seen that before, but wanted to make sure before I place my order.
Magic Johnson needs that article.
No do not get those. First off, I think both the Kennett and Tribeca are ugly. Plus, you can get most AE's for <200 through different discounts/shoe bank.

I going to be getting rid of it; size 36, side vents, 3roll2. 38R probably. My actual shoulders are 18" and chest is 39".
JCrew is fine, but it's really no different as a whole from BR or shit you can get at Macys. I did pick up a yellow and blue tie for $10 there yesterday to look extra douchey at cal games.

As for their wool, don't really know. I meant from several years ago, i.e. 3-5 yrs ago. BR is definitely improving this year but for awhile they were brutal with quality/fit. I have a silk/cashmere sweater I got a couple years back, much...

Thinner and lighter fabric. Some come with the cross stitching/padding on the shoulders and elbows while some don't. I think the custom ones do not but you can always call them to ask.

I would've kopped the other wool/cashmere one but that sold out in like 2 minutes. Anyone have any knowledge on sizing for that Caruso one? i.e. which size correlates to a 18" shoulder?
