I can't seem to find great fitting sunglasses for my long face or a great hat that goes with my large forehead. I have a normal narrow & pointed nose if that helps. Any suggestions Thanks!
There's a 40% off sale at Banana Republic Canada sweaters from 11-2pm. I'm thinking of passing up on the deal; not enough savings for their inflated price + I don't think their fit will look good on my 6"5' frame. I'm still waiting till the first Jcrew shop opens in Toronto for tall apparel. Is this a good choice? Thanks!

Some more tips: The B&S forum is also your friend; ebay is a a friend and enemy. Basically all the affiliates are good, check what they have to offer. There are a few affiliates in the SW&D forum that are Canadian. I'll check cottonwork selection. Buy and sell is usually...

It's trial and error at first and most stores that offer free return shipping can't do it for Canada. But once you nail the sizing with whatever online shops you like then you're good to go. It can be a crap shoot but a couple bucks here or there in shipping is worth it in the long run...at least until J Crew comes to town next...

Around the KW area. So what site (Canadian maybe) is for good MTM shirts? Honestly, I still don't know how to do measurements (link on how to do that well?). I read that places like Tip Top Tailor and Stars screw...

University student here looking for some good wardrobe staples. My first one is gonna a tall/long pea coat from J Crew (coming to Canada in 2011). Since I'm from the Great White North, a few of the US and international brands aren't here. Where can a tall guy like myself find good clothing?* My mall has RW & CO and MEXX so I might go to Toronto and suburbs to get what's good. *not big and tall...seriousy nothing fits me there and I'm a 6' 5" and skinny (should...
