Oliver Spencer is definitely on a nice, slow, burn. The accessories are nice (I have the very simple "Cadet" belt (FW07), and the slim belt from SS08 is very cool as well,) and the cut and details of the clothes are well thought out. The brand is carried by surprisingly fewer retailers than I'd expect, considering that it's accessible, and priced comfortably. I would have expected it in as many stores as Rag&Bone, but I suppose that the line suffers from not having any denim in it.
Good call on the Julius bag. I think that compromise is the source of discontent. If you have your heart set on something, nothing else will compare favorably.
