Takes me back. About 15 years or so, when I did my CCNA. Back then we were told that IPv6 would have taken over the world by now. Well that, and camo double monks.
Sorry if I'm teaching you to suck eggs, but a word of advice. Get a grip on the maths in binary. After that, I found that mucking around with dotted decimal octets 'just makes sense'.

I'm completing my CCNA at the moment as part of my course. I get binary quite well, thankyou.

 

I don't see IPv6 coming in for a little while yet, but It should have by now. The problem is that the cost falls onto the ISPs, which are purely a for profit business who will not want to spend any money that doesn't give them a direct return. Push will come to shove and there will be some sort of committee set up and the taxpayers will foot the bill.

They do (well Dark Chocolate at least) - .http://www.skoaktiebolaget.se/news/carmina-suede-string-loafers
http://www.thearmourystore.com/shoes/carmina-uetam-80285-loafer-suede-brown

I was tossing up between the snuff and the dark suede. Have preordered the snuff via Carmina (in production now) for a few of reasons -

1. To me that is the original colour for them when the catch my eye (well over a year ago)
2. They are a summer shoe so lighter should be better
3. They are about $100 cheaper via Carmian (though Sk is about $100 cheaper than The Armoury)
4. The dark brown is too dark.

Was very tempted to go dark brown suede, esp since Skoaktiebolaget have my size in stock....

EDIT: Except if you mean why does the Carmina online store not have chocolate ones, in which case it might be worth email them to ask.

Oh, I meant why not on Carmina's own e-boutique. I know The Armoury has them, but at about $180 more than the e-boutique.

 

I'm leaning towards the dark brown suede over the snuff because of my complexion. I might go with Skoaktiebolaget if I have to.

For those of you that use Luxire, any problems with quality control? I received two pairs of chinos I comissioned based on a pair of P Johnson trousers. Overal, the fit is good and they got all the measurements right, but one of the pairs has belt loops rather than side adjusters and the cuffs are not the right length (also, the trouser cuffs have an interior button? I've never seen that before).

 

This is following on from a shirt order that was made up with the wrong fabric. They kindly offerred to remake at no extra cost, but again, the remade shirt has buttons that differ from those specified.

 

None of this is serious stuff, it's all completely wearable and pretty amazing value, it would just be nice to know that you're going to get exactly what you order.

The trouser cuffs with interior buttons are quite functional - it allows you to unfold the cuff when laundering your trousers.

 

It's an Ambrosi standard-issue feature.

Realised that too late - "EDIT: Except if you mean why does the Carmina online store not have chocolate ones, in which case it might be worth email them to ask."

Either way i have found both Carmina and Skoaktiebolaget quick to respond, but on Gerry's advice was very direct in my communication with Carmina.

That's actually pretty neat. I don't think I own any cuffed trousers that I don't get dry-cleaned. That explains why this has never really come up before.

Hi guys,

 

I'm travelling to the States at the end of next month and was looking for a little advice. Half the trip will be in Pittsburgh for business. I realise that Pittsburgh is not well know for it's mens' apparel but there is one store that seems worth a visit: Larrimor's. I may be enticed to spurge on a seven-fold selfie, shirt and overcoat.

 

However, the advice I seek is related to my activities after this (unless you know something about Pittsburgh worth publishing). I see two obvious options:

1) PIT -> NYC -> DFW -> BNE.
This option would involve a few days in New York which gives me a multitude of ready-to-wear shopping options (J Press, Brooks Bros., Oxxford, others?), perhaps a jewellery purchase for Spitfire and most importantly: Rangers v Canucks, Jets v Dolphins.

2) PIT -> DFW -> BNE
This option would involve a few days in Dallas, which I have only ever connected through. The focus here would be on more affordable outlet shopping and: Stars v Blackhawks, Cowboys v Raiders.

 

Note that I will be over there for Thanksgiving so that may rule out some days for shopping in NYC. Do the shops shut just for the day or the entire long weekend (thurs-sun)?


I would appreciate a compelling argument to choose one option over the other as I'm having difficulty making up my mind.

Cheers

How much would a pair of trousers from PJ's set one back? $300? $400?

post #38999 of 54953

And as a follow on from that I guess the next question is what would a pair from Suit Shop set one back?

No idea on Suit Shop but I think (going for a fairly standard fabric) PJ trousers are about $350. These things always depend on a few factors but that should give you a ballpark. Others might be able to help and the chaps at PJ's are pretty good at answer questions (though it has been a while since a "initial enquiry" email).

By the way, you just broke the first rule of Aus Members thread - asking about PJ pricing...or did I break it by trying to answer...hahahaha
