It's just an expensive sweatshirt, right? Inside out, cold water wash (or hand-wash), air dry is always wise for any garment you want to preserve. Hot wash and machine dry can expedite fading and wear.

how do Gap refunds work? I bought a jacket online using 2 gift cards (that I threw away after)and a credit card and then sent it back (online return only), so they sent me an email that suggests they are sending me a giftcard with the amount minus what I put on the credit card.

So, are they sending me a giftcard?

1) BBS cotton jacket (~$400)



2) Junya Watanable jacket (~$700)



which do you prefer and is either worth the price?

I would call their customer service line. They have always been very helpful with me.

Rather than dig up some other thread... i just received 2 pairs of chuck taylors from Zappos because i wanted to compare them to the PF Flyers i have.

Quality seems a bit worse than the PF Flyers, but they're also like half the price so i'm not as worried about that.

Sizing seems odd though...

People say to size down 1/2 size from your normal shoe size, so i did... and they both fit like half to FULL size bigger than i thought they would.

I got the All Star OX Maroon in a US8 and it measures 11" across the bottom.

And then i got the (RED) Black African Canvas in black US8 which measures 11.5" across the bottom.

http://www.zappos.com/converse-produ...anvas-ox-black

I have an 1-1.5" of room in the toebox on these, and an inch is prob what i usually have for athletic shoes... but for some reason both these feel much more roomy in the toe area than normal?

If i were to try and exchange both pairs you think i'd be able to fit comfortably into a US7? Or would they be too snug?

Also, what is the difference between the all star core and chuck taylor? notice in my links that both appear to be the same shoe but are named differently?

Having tried them on they are barely less comfortable than the PF Flyers (which do have a LITTLE more support) but i think i do like the looks of the chucks better.

Also... what is the point of canvas hi tops? Just so that your socks don't show with jeans? haha i don't see any point outside of that... its not like they offer additional ankle support or anything???

Dude, it's Zappos. Free return shipping on returns. In the time it took you to write this, you could have boxed them up and ordered the sevens. Shoe fits vary like crazy. Difference between a 7 and 8 is about 1/2". Yes, I think you'll fit. I just got a few pair from Zappos and returned all of them and went a size smaller than I'm used to. I got 9s, and I've never gone below 10 before. The 9s fit great (and these were structured leather shoes, not stretchy canvas sneakers). Tip: when you go online for returns, select USPS as your return shipper, then go to the USPS website and select 'schedule a pick-up'. Pick-ups are free for online order merchandise returns since you have the Zappos label on the box. Have USPS pick up at your work. Saves you a trip to the UPS counter. It's so damn easy and you don't even have to get off your butt to return :-)

Ha! yeah i know ive used Zappos a million times... including sending TONS of crap back. That's why i use em... hehe

I was just wondering if going from an 8 to a 7 would be a full size down, because i think that might be too much? I noticed that the core/seasonal come in half sizes but damn i don't know if that means much for this shoe. Sizing is crazy... and the african canvas models only come in 7/8/9/etc

If i couldnt fit in a 7 why bother to send them back? Easier to ask an obscenely long short story about them on here since 75% of the members prob buy them on a regular basis haha

Looking for this Gitman Bros. shirt in medium: http://www.contextclothing.com/item.php?id=1016

Tried to order it from Fred Segal Trend but they were actually sold out despite what their website indicated...

Any ideas?

Email the Context boys and ask them if a re-stock is expected.

Just picked up an ermenegildo zegna full-button-down polo shirt for next to nothing at a thrift store. Problem is, the fit is somewhat large, so I wanted to shrink it a bit. The care label recommends hand washing in cold water, but would it destroy the shirt if I machine-washed it in boiling water and then hung-dry it? Forgive me if this is a stupid question

Point me to a place for decent shirt buttons that are relatively cheap. I only want to spend around $5 a shirt, since its only a $25 lands ends canvas shirt. I've found a dozen smoke MoP buttons for $6.40+shipping, http://www.mjtrim.com/Catalog/Produc...505/18505.aspx But white or off white, MoP buttons are considerably more expensive, I could go plastic as well. Also for a grey chambray would color buttons should I go with? White, off white, or something darker colored (smoke, black)?

Probably would be fine, check the tag and see what it is made of. As long as it isn't a fragile material or the seams look weak, should be fine. And if it was in a thrift store I'm guessing it has been machine washed quite a bit.
post #12585 of 12663
Thanks, I'll probably go ahead with the wash tomorrow. It's a cotton-viscose blend, 60/40, so I'm thinking it should be fine, right?
