Those new Kent Wang sneakers are looking pretty fresh. Definitely gonna pick some up when they expand their sizes in the spring.
Thank you culver. I was considering Simpson's. And I will keep my reservation at Grosvenor House, then. Anyone have suggestions for the best place to get meat pies?
Bumping this thread. Debating staying at either Grosvenor House (JW Marriott) or the May Fair. Can anyone compare? Read some so-so reviews of May Fair on Tripadvisor. Also, has anyone been to Wild Honey? Surely there must be more restaurant recommendations for London. Also, where should I do Sunday lunch / brunch?
Agreed. Also, I can sell my ring for what I bought it for. And I shopped at the wholesale, jeweler's row places and my ring would've cost the same. Colorless, GIA, round, VS, as you get over a carat prices increase exponentially. So I would be surprised if In stitches could replicate the setting/ring and diamond for 9k.
I did a lot of shopping around. I cannot handle the idea of overpaying for things. I guess it makes sense since I make a living out of buying things I deem to cheap and selling things I think are dear. After doing all my research, I was prepared to spend ~$15k and had located the ring my wife liked most and decided to buy it from Tiffany & Co. I went in there and thought I could get a ring that was listed at $17k for $15k. Turns out they don't negotiate. (Winston and...
I'll throw my hat in the ring on this (although this is largely focused on Tokyo). This is just excerpted from an e-mail I wrote to some friends: I am not 100% confident on this, but if memory serves me correctly it is very expensive to take a taxi / towncar from NRT into the city (in the order of $200 and that was when the JPY was relatively weak against USD and it has since gotten stronger, so could be up to like $240 USD equivalent now). There are other options, so...
Alcantara is trash. It doesn't really make sense to have it anywhere other than a track-type car, if only b/c it's flame-retardant. Otherwise, it's just, well...retarded.
My friend had a couple sweaters that his gf bought for him that disintegrated within 2 months of purchase. Tons of flaws on that knitwear. This was 2 yrs ago when brand was first starting to get out and knitwear. Things may have improved but the sheer lack of quality that he experienced has deterred me from ever buying anything from them.
I own a Porsche and I hate Panameras. They are hideous. It looks like they just lowered a Cayenne as far as possible.
Bumping this old thread just so people can see the pics of some of those bold, garish prints. Very 70s/80s. Not sure if I would wear them, but I can dig them.
