Less whining about SZ, no one cares that you got your feelings hurt. Seriously, feels like you two tag-team about SZ almost as often as Bene talks about buying another Schneider whatever that won't fit well.
All the people excited about union made and I just don't understand how anyone can get so excited about 1000 different versions of a henley, which is seemingly all they sell. (Other than the bucket hats and overpriced Beams+.)

My SdC trousers are my favorite pickup of 2014.
As for brands, NMWA should just keep surprising us - Niche, SdC, Esemplare - all brands that have added great variety to my wardrobe. I'd be skeptical of the feedback for minute variations on what you already carry - Henry Ford has a relevant quote here, I think.
