Is this what the B&S Has Come To?
Economy isn't the best, and since it's Christmas, people need more cash.
Also, for what it's worth, there's not a whole lot of people that have access to try these out in stores..and with no returns, it's a 400$ gamble.Since they've been up so long, it's potentially a bad gamble too.
It's a buyers market.
I'd buy almost all your coats if I could afford it - not that "if" really helps matters.
I suspect a lot of members have similar thoughts about similar B&S stuff.
Fact is, for me, my company has decided not to give raises and bonuses 2 years in a row. During that time, cost of living and taxes have risen and my medical plan has doubled.
So basically I took a pay cut two years in a row lol ... and a pretty decent sized one at that.
Since I refuse to have credit card debt, I unfortunately must be much more frugal with this addictive hobby of ours.
This needs its own thread. If you can get 100 people to ring in or Thumbs Up, I'll have to concede
And there you have it.
I am reading this thread wearing Giannis I bought from Ralph for basically the same price, and was able to return if sizing down didn't prove to be a good idea.
As a BS browser, it is too hard to see new stuff on mobile. The sort by newest post feature either doesn't work or lets bumped old posts past it.
Readers of that RL cordovan thread are well educated about their sizes. I wouldn't put much weight into that factor.
