Picked up a pair of CT-100x. So soft and comfy, kind of a revelation moving from APC and japanese repro. Awesome cut too, if you like a relaxed top block and mid-high rise with decent taper.
Have you guys received the new G&R swatches? Particularly interested in the linens in different colors/patterns, if they're available.
+1 on lookbooks. Or even WAYWT for that matter. Nothing motivates me to buy clothes more than seeing an item executed well in a real life setting by someone whose style I share or aspire to.
How would a recommendation algorithm work for clothes? Those systems typicaly match you up with customers with similar purchase history. Problem is when you get to expensive items that are consumed less frequently, not to mention when sizing and geography are relevant variables, there's nowhere near enough data. You're not going to have the Spotify experience of finding 1000 people with 500 song playlists that are a 99% overlap with your taste. Rather it's like books where...
Really love both of these sportcoats emptym.However these pics, as well as the ones mafoofan posted, are turning me off cream squares altogether. I'm not a fan of the warm yellow/gold undertones juxtaposed against shirts with a white base.I always thought the cream color in question was off-white with a slight cool grey/pink tinge, like this:

In this scenario, would Paypal refund everyone and then go after Drew, even though the dispute window is over? Is there precedent for this type of thing?If so, this would be an insane ending to the TOJ saga.
Agree with this and posted about it a lot when Drew was soliciting "partners" a while back.The low price and SW&D forum focus were a great way to build rep and get free PR and overall worked magnificently - to this day there are plenty loyal early customers that continue to defend TOJ and Drew's integrity notwithstanding the current fiasco. And regardless of anything that's happened in the past year, we all know that if Drew posted tomorrow that MTM was back with an 8-week...
