Thanks for the feedback - very helpful. Now I just need someone to exchange my thornproof for a Sylkoil... Not quite sure how to get this done but I suspect Orvis or one of the Barbour dealer in NYC will be helpful... Anyone know of other big box retailers in NYC that carry Barbour?Which I knew about Oi Poloi before pulling the trigger with Bloomingdales,,,
Can you expand on why you like the Sylkoil better - is it less waterproof than the thornproof? Is the olive much different in color than the sage???
OK.. I followed the advice I received on this board and picked up a Bedale online at Bloomingdales on sale - The problem is that they only carry the jacket in black. I think I have more interest in Sage so now I have to find someone that will let me exchange a legit US-Sourced Jacket for another color. Any ideas?
Does Orvis or the Barbour stores in NYC ever run sales on Beaufort, Bedale, etc? Thinking post-XMAS if it makes sense to wait...

I have a pair of Alden Perf Cap Toes in Shell Color #8 - 9.5 EEE on the Modified Last - Willing to consider parting with them. This was a custom one-pair make-up from Alden

There's a 30% off sale coming up - One day sale on OCtober 18th.... You're in college, save the money!Or buy from LL Bean - even cheaper
I know I'm many, many months away (6 months) from a first fitting but the question is - How should be-spoke shoes fit? I've read comments by forum members that mention that bespoke shoes fit differently than RTW - I've been wearing 'blah' fitting shoes for so long that it's difficult for me to get my arms around what that means. Does anyone have a cross-post or article that discusses fit and comfort? Opinions welcome - I have to believe that there are many different...
Did your friend seek a similar solution? I'd love to hear about it...
I met with George Glasgow today in New York and ordered my first pair of bespoke shoes. I was hoping to travel to Vienna to try out an Austro-Hungarian shoemaker but due to a very hectic family & work schedule I just don't see it happening any time soon. George comes to NY at least 2 times per year and I plan to travel to London in the next 6 months for a quick business trip. In addition, his reputation is stellar, so I really feel like this is my best option. I use a...
