Received my Tyrwhitt shirt. Wearing it right now, actually. Thanks again
Received my RLPL OCBD yesterday. Great shirt and super fast shipping! Thanks again!
Excellent transactions with: jpo, highgrade, matt22616, MBreinin, jerrybrowne, whusurdadi, jevum.
I like the Royal Oak as "something different" but it definitely looks straight out of the '80s. In a good way. I know you said no to the Rolex, but as far as investment is concerned it's far and away the best brand for resale (or to trade for your life in a 3rd world country). A good alternative to a "standard" Rolex is a gold Daytona on a leather strap. If it's good enough for Steve McQueen, it's good enough for me. I applaud you for branching out, though. All...
I am really envious of my girlfriend's soul-less retail return attitude. If there is anything awry she'll take it back for a refund, even if it's been worn or washed. Me, I've found stains on shirts after getting them home and OxyCleaned them instead of returning. But you said the sales guy was pretentious, so who gives a hoot.

It's at the tailor shop now getting pants brought up a tad, and cleaned. ...
Thanks, I'll have them taken up another inch or so - it's tough to get an appropriate length to wear with cowboy boots and dress shoes.
On impulse I bought my first "trendy" suit - thin lapels, skinny trousers, pseudo Paul Smith liner. I'd like to hear how you all think it looks. I see the pulling in the jacket with it buttoned - how much of a faux pas is this? Can anything be done to alleviate it? Since this is more of a "party suit" I doubt it will be buttoned much anyway. Be critical (especially of the iphone 4 camera ), I can take it: Also, I don't actually wear my tie knots that big, I...
For now I stick to BB slim fit, usually around $70. Looking forward to the day when I've "made it" and can spend $400 on a T&A shirt or $500 on Hermes and not worry about it.
