I *could* have gone with any number of retailers and gambled on getting them by Thursday, but I went with Gary Drinkwater, who I knew would come through in a pinch. He didn't have exactly what I wanted, but he phoned around immediately, found what I needed, and had them dropped shipped, express, from a supplier, the very same day. I was willing to pay 20% or so more than the closest competitor because I knew that with Gary, I was not going to have to worry, that he would follow up and make sure that things went smoothly.

At Kuhlmans, which I visit everytime I go to Seattle, I know that I can bring in my suit, which they tailored for me a good while back, but which still doesn't fit perfectly, and they will make adjustments to it free of further charge and willingly, until it does. I make a point of buying my Nice Collective there, if they have the piece I want, even if another place in the city carries it for less, not just because I want to ensure that I can get that type of service (which saves me a lot of headaches) for years to come, but because that type of service makes me like patronizing the store.

hahah jet, you make my day! Though I do side with LA Guy on this one.

The cliff notes for you:
Some people won't sell to the lowest bidder, in exchange for superior service at a known retailer

Not quite accurate.

Nom De Guerre & CP's are 40% across the board.

Remaining BoO, Ervell are 60%. Okay selection of both in smaller sizes.

Too bad ss09 NDG was terrible. Megarib pullover lolwut? Fever.se has free shipping, no VAT and 30% off a selection off pieces from W+H, RO, Levi's and a few other choice peoples. The gentlemen who runs it is a champion as well and is a great guy. Gravitypope has a big sale as well, for all those who love W+H, like me. Check it out brothers!

I thought the CPs (all shoes) were 60% off, but I may be mistaken.
