Bought a pair of shoes from chobochobo and damned if he didn't get them to me from Hong Kong faster than most domestic stores get me shoes 3 or 4 states away. Great seller, and a pleasure to deal with.
had some truly exceptional transactions this week. first is edmorel, whose Panta line of pants is truly as advertised, and more. you've probably read the immense amount of hype generated on SF, and all of it is deserved. it's like someone read SF for a few years, took the absolute best details that the SF darling tailors/brands had to offer, and made a line of pants that either incorporated or blew away every single one of those details....which is of course exactly what Ed did. and all for less than quarter of the price of a pair of Kitons or Thom Brownes. thanks Ed, and i'm already on your list for a few more next is distinctive, who is one of the forum mainstays, but my interaction with him was truly exceptional. i had inquired about one of his Attolini suits, and he was incredibly patient and helpful with my many questions, and went back and forth countless times to help me select the suit that was exactly right for my needs. this transaction literally took weeks and more than 30 emails/pm's, and i am kind of embarrassed that i took so much of his time - but he was completely friendly and helpful through it all. better service than Vacca, and the exact same product at more than 80% less! thanks guys.
