    Frans Boone is Dutch, and I think he is only using UPS and FedEx.

    I don't think that's correct, but I might be wrong.

    All I have seen is speculation about it since the sweats are made in Canada. I'd think someone would have been able to confirm by now if true, but who knows.

    Gotta give some love to The Corner.

    I called to see if I could get a price adjustment on an item from a week-old order that had dropped again and was still in stock in my size. The call took about three minutes and they adjusted both items from my order that had dropped again.

    Really great customer service. Definitely will not forget that.

    My TS X Champion sheet metal varsity jacket is made in the USA. It looks like the jackets might be made by Golden Bear, the quality is definitely on par.

    I believe this is tied to your particular account.

    I didn't even get a shipping confirmation from Sneaker Boy yet. Wouldn't mind actually if my order gets canceled, don't need any more shoes.

    Were you a first time buyer from Gilt? I can't get the code to work. I'm not ruling out user error however.

    Just got the stuff I ordered (which was damn quick, I might add). Thoughts:

    - The TS x Champion fleece jacket is ungodly soft - the closest material I can think of is loopwheeled fabric, although I doubt it's that - and fits really well, not too tight in the chest and not too boxy through the midsection. It's somewhat similar to the EG porter jacket. There are some loose threads but nothing that appears to be structurally deficient. Made in Canada.

    - The selvedge chinos are a lot softer than I expected; they're made from a pre-washed fabric that I think is 100% cotton but definitely has some give to it. The color is definitely lighter and maybe a little greener than I expected. They fit well, not too snug in the thighs and with a nice taper below the knee. It's worth noting that the inseam is pretty short, and they run large by about a size. They're somewhere in the range of some of the pre-washed (but non-distressed) RRL stuff I've handled, IMO. Made in China.

    Overall, I feel like I wouldn't pay retail for this stuff ($400 and $300, respectively), but I feel like I underpaid for them at $100 and $70, respectively. I'll definitely keep an eye out for TS x Champion stuff next season if the line continues.


    Dana Lee stock chinos are kinda tempting. Anyone have experience and care to comment on fit/quality/whatever?

    Anyone know how to get the Gilt code to work? I created a new account but it still won't let me apply the code.

    As a side note, I'm trying to buy some Eastland MiM marked at $99. When I went back to the page signed in under the new account the price went up to $109...

    The code is linked to certain accounts. Usually accounts that have bought something the past, but have been dormant for a while.


    I've handled them on at Inventory (or was it Neighbour? Can't remember). Didn't try them on, but the quality seemed just as nice as any revered "SWD" brand on here.
