Is buying birthday gifts allowed? Today it's my birthday and I was planning on buying a pair of shoes... bigstar[1].gif

 

But if not allowed I will wait until the grace period. laugh.gif

Soz, I forgot.

 

I'll take it under consideration, but jrd actually works to be my nemesis. Every 48 hours or so, he'll send me messages offering to sell me some of his soporifics for dirt cheap just to try and break me.

 

Betel--hold out. Of course, if you let someone else know what you want, that's a different story. And happy birthday! Go to San Antonio for some Tex-Mex.

That is a beautiful beautiful tie. And as early as possible would I believe be July 29th (or 28th?) rather than the 30th. 5ish days are given as a grace period, overlapping into the next month, to make sure the folks going month to month have enough time to make their purchases.

Yep. Thanks! Already talked to Spoo and Ed about the tie. Looks gorgeous. Not sure what to wear it with since a raw silk striped grenadine is quite different. But it's one of those things that is so nice, I'll find a way.

 

Also ordering a brown jacket. I have a blue-brown hounds tooth linen jacket and a navy blue blazer. I need to get brown to be able to cycle through options. Since I primarily go through KW (Price and fit are dialed in), was going to stick to that. What do you think of this fabric..

TR7103 on the upper right. Brown windowpane.

 

I've cycled through TR7100, TR4012 (which I REALLY wanted but green can come later) and TR7108. I think I settled on TR7103 due to it not being plain but still having somewhat of a subtle design and not too loud.

 

$650 for a D-level jacket. I have a $233 credit already. I won't pay more than D-level for a KW jacket until he gets a label on there. It's really weird to me paying $650 for a jacket and it not saying where I got it from.

 

What do you think, senor Clag? (And anyone else)

My favorite, as I think I mentioned earlier, is 7104, but depending on your trouser selection, that might work more easily as a suit. For an odd jacket, I like 4012 more than 7103, but 7103 is definitely nice.

 

KW doesn't put a label on his stuff? Interesting.

I like 4012 more than 7103 as well and it looks pretty versatile (I think greens go great with a white-patterned shirt such as a herringbone). Just not sure if it's the smart idea for building a wardrobe.

 

If I got 4012, it'd be with full brown lining, flap pockets/welt pocket, standard shoulders. My usual is soft shoulders, patch/welt, half lined. But this needs to be more proper I think.. 

 

Just his suit/jacket collections. I've mentioned it to him and mentioned it on the forum. If he had labels I'd be more inclined to get the pricier stuff. That and the lining is Polyester/Viscose blend but that doesn't bug me as much. It feels alright.

 

7104 will not work for me. I have a limited trouser selection and am working on it. Off the rack doesn't work for me, it looks a little weird in the rear. I'm working with Luxire on a base pattern for now. Then they will come rushing in. I have zero suits, I refuse to buy a nice suit to have the pants look like crap. Eventually I'll figure something out.

 

You said you mentioned 7104 earlier, have we talked about this already? Last month?

These Alfred Sargent for Herring were avialable in Herring's sale at HALF PRICE.  Held off long enough that there are no longer any in my size.  They cleared them due to the hatchgrain not being as pronounced as they wanted and were remaking them. I actually liked them more with a subtle hatchgrain material.  While I'm glad I was able to demonstrate some self control, I think it might have been a mistake...

Deets? And you can always hop back on by matching your purchase with a donation to charity.

How badly did you need another black shoe?
