Yep, and especially now with the weak Canadian dollar. I got a pair of baxter ranger mocs about a year and a half ago. They were $295 I believe, but after customs, and shipping I think they ended up being closer to 400, and the dollar was essentially at par back then. That being said, I'd still love a pair of Clymer boots.
Nope, hang dried. It didn't loose much length, but definitely a bit.
From my experience, my HA's have shrunk quite a bit after being washed in cold water. They stretch back after one wear, but I believe I lost some length on the inseam. I saw someone post on the gustin board that their HA's shrunk even more than their Loomstate unsanforized jeans.
I've got a filson medium duffle, which has been great for me. But the obv reason is to support the brand and they're quite a bit cheaper. I think a lot of people caught some kind of Gustin fever as well, and ended up wanting to own all things G. I mean they even sold flasks and people bought them.
I never really considered the bolded part, but that actually makes a ton of sense. I'm in the Toronto area so many of the clothing companies I order from come from warehouses not too far so I hardly wait for those. So I guess I can pay a little extra and wait a little longer for stuff coming from the states, esp when it's unique or not available here. I think the most painful part is seeing just how cheap the US shipping is in comparison, but that's not Gustin's fault as...
Wow, that thing is really small. It makes that toothpaste look like a Costco sized tube.
They look almost identical. The fact that they're both made in Mauritius doesn't help trying to distinguish between the two. This actually kinda affirms why I like JC Factory. For 20 bucks the non Thomas Mason is a pretty decent shirt/deal. I've had a few of the factory shirts for a few years and they've held up pretty well.Any discernible differences in the construction? I usually find some off threads with my factory stuff, more so than the retail store items.
If that is actually what happened that is horrifying. That being said, I've been on their site a lot, put items in my cart, checked out, and end up not buying the item so many times I can't even count and that hasn't happened to me. I'll keep an eye out though. That's insane, and realllllly awful business practice.And yes, we get gouged in Canada with the prices regardless, as per the poster above.
I'd support a slim straight, although, I'd like the rise to be as high as the straights so maybe we're not on the same page there. The slim fits me well as it is. Hopefully, they're working on another fit in the slim-straight area.
Can't say that I've been to that location. But this article might explain some things. http://www.torontolife.com/style/toronto-shopping/2014/02/07/jcrew-collection-store-bloor-street/
