For spring, we're adding a brand that is very close to my heart and well appreciated on SF as well...

just signed up as founding member! looking forward to the secret sale!

There are, but they're not on the same level - that doesn't mean they're not a good product. Look at how SW&D baller boots/leather jackets are priced relative to other decently made options. You can't really compare Alden or Carmina with say St. Crispin.

There is no comparison, but many would (and have) could argue that there is a level of diminishing returns when it comes to shoes above the $600/pair price point. For about $700, there is no reason to look anywhere but Vass (for me, at least).

For most people, there are diminishing returns above $250. You can get a decent pair of Loakes for that, and they'll last you as much as a pair of top shelf Edward Greens or St. Crispins. But there is a real difference, for those who both know and care. Same goes with pretty much anything.

Quick, SW+D bat signal! Can anyone recommend a reasonably-priced hotel with some character in a reasonably fun part of London? I am at an absolute and total loss and can't find the London thread because my ISP has decided to cap my internet.

Poke around in Dalston for something that seems good enough.  It will most likely have character and definitely be near somewhere fun.  Or are you trying to be even closer to the center of the city?

Thing is, I don't really know. It's a super quick vacation, just on the way to Paris, so I'd rather have easy acces (train or foot) to museums and food and stuff. I've no idea how possible that is. Thanks for the two recs already, though!

Hey, that's a nice ts(s) shirt, let's see how much it costs. Oh, $650.
