appreciate the advice. I have been browsing ebay for some Allen Edmonds and Aldens as well. I haven't dealt with meermins yet, but i know they are supposed to be pretty nice.

There's a Rugby thread. You should try there.

I've traded successfully a number of times on SF. Honestly, I've found the biggest indicator is the level of communication WITH YOU. Does he write you PMs in complete sentences? Is he responsive? Are the pics good quality? would you date him? Kidding. But seriously: it's a gut check thing. If he feels sketchy, or does not answer your questions in a way that helps you feel at ease, ask yourself if it's worth the risk. Don't be blinded by a deal or an item you're really after.

Good calls here. And also: embrace it. If you're wearing shoes to do shit in, you're gonna get stuff on them. Take the steps to try and minimize and then accept that it's inevitable that you'll get them dirty. Especially suede.

how does the warmth of a sheepskin jacket compare to the warmth of a down-filled jacket?

Why is Visvim soo expensive?

Yeah, it's made in Japan, but that can't defend the price.

Is the 3sixteen ST-100X better or the Rogue Territory Stanton? I have a hard time deciding.

do levis jackets shrink a lot?....I'm looking to purchase a "rigid" levis jacket, brand new, 70797-0004 is the style #. It's a standard fit trucker jacket I believe. I'm about 6' 135-140, pretty tall and lanky and I don't want the jacket to be too short on me in the waist, however, I also don't want it to shrink a lot after I wash it.

Trying to figure out which ones I should get



or



I know the Aldens are more MC whereas the MMMs more SW, and my wardrobe is definitely more leaning towards SW, but I am definitely more intrigued by that cordovan leather.confused.gif

Both are equally well made, in the US, of excellent fabrics. Pick the fit and minor detail differences you prefer & you'll be set. Awesome people all around.

Why is there so much hate for a place like UO and so much love for Uniqlo? Just an honest question. I picked up a pair of Obey Jeans and Koto Camo Chinos for under $80 on sale today. I guess sometimes it's hard to figure out where the line is on brands that are SF approved or not, and to understand why some are promoted over others. I know has Uniqlo just prices low to start, and is good for basics, so maybe that's it. Or is the quality THAT bad from a place like UO?

Bottom line: I'm directing all my left over $$ each month to improve my wardrobe. I'm genuinely trying to buy mostly quality/quantity these days, sometimes it's hard, even when looking at dress shirts, to figure out what the real story is. For example, I could go to Lands End and get a tailored fit dress shirt in my given length/neck size for $30...or pick up a shirt from Taylor Stitch for $130. Is the difference longevity of the fabric and the quality used? I've run into the same thing looking at Chinos from Dockers/J. Crew vs. Unis. Hard to know the reasons for the difference in price and when it's justified. Genuinely interested in upping my knowledge and becoming informed, all replies appreciated.

Quality from UO is generally terrible.

I got some casual leather boots that I plan on beating the hell out of this winter. What do you all recommend I do to protect them from moisture and salt stains?
