    Has anyone seen the new Thom Browne line stuff in person? Thoughts?

    Might consider kopping one day if I need a boring 'first suit'.

    nice meeting you, and glad to hear you liked it! Did you go with the Bronte burger? Those australians do things sort of weird, but I like it. Just can't go in expecting the texture or taste of a normal patty.

    Interview at Amazon tomorrow and I have no idea what to wear. I guess that means suit.

    Well 42 would probably stretch out if they fit a little tight but 1/2 size can make a shoe fit perfectly. why not ask for measurements? And I'd go 42.


    Kind of related to that. Is it to demanding to ask for insole and/or outsole measurement when buying something on bst or ebay? Some responses I've gotten amaze me.

    "It fits like x brand size x' Well this assumes I have that brand which is a totally different aesthetic and shoe type.
    'Fits like stock/usual x size' Not true, sizing even varies from within a brand.
    'I don't have measuring tape' Selling a 400+ shoe and not only you don't measuring tape but you don't make any effort to get one? I mean you can even print one ffs.

    If it helps, I'm a 44 in MMM GATs, a 10D in brannock sizing (AE sizing too), and a 43 in MMM boots. I wear a UK9 in Lanvin too, and an 11 in nikes.

    The Amazon interview will be high intensity, rapid fire and will go on all day, or it will be over after the first or second person you meet with all the other people on your interview list suddenly unable to make it. If the rest of the day is cancelled mysteriously, they are not interested. If you stay the whole day, they are interested and you have a good chance of moving forward to the next round. Don't be surprised if there is no small talk during the interview.

    The interview is going especially well if they add people at the end who weren't originally scheduled to meet you.

    Wear something comfortable. Khakis/button down should be fine. People dress like it is a college campus without the slobs. Lots of jeans and outdoorsy looking jackets.

    Good luck

    Scheduled to be there until 5pm tomorrow, I hope they don't plan to keep me there much longer than that.

    /edit

    Also, thank you!
