    Just got the Orlebar Brown Pique Shirt (Like a button down very light polo) - fucking fantastic. Highly recommended for any of you guys looking for something to walk around in while on a beach or by the pool

    Edit: Just wanted to add that FW13 Margiela T's are very nice, the nicest I've handle yet. With a slight U-Neck, fabric feels like a wool or viscose blend. Much softer than previous ones I've handled

    There's a little place in my heart reserved for birks. a little place.

    NDC boat shoes remind me of sf >3 years ago (is that bad?). The tan wash brings on shades of wu tang wallabees for me tho and 70% sealed the deal.

    I think it's a white person thing? Birkenstocks, I could be wrong and I'm not trying to be racist.

    Size 1. Waiting on it to arrive. I tried it on in-store and it was a little snug across the back when zipped up. Size 2 would probably be too big.

    Got it off farfetch. There's a 20% code off sales items, X20.

    I was debating picking up the size II, size I in Siki Im is getting too tight in the shoulders for me. Can't decide between it and a TOJ MA-1. Oh yeah, and what size did you end up getting in the Schneider (sorry I never responded to your PM)

    ^ all good. I went with the Schneider 4 based off the measurements SW gave me. I was deciding the same between the ToJ and Siki Im, and while ToJ is a nice clean take of the MA-1, I like Siki's approach with the lines and cut outs more.

    Didn't buy anything from sale season. Picked up an Epaulet navy suit for work/formal functions. I think I'm done for a while. Today was expensive by my standards (and all navy everything) :embar:

    Maybe some more MC stuff (austerity brogues and a truly nice shirt or two).

    Ugghh, I had thought I had ordered that SS jacket in size 4, I guess I accidentally choose the size 6. Got it today and it's way too big. Very nice jacket tho. If the 4 doesn't work out for you , let me know.

    Also have about 20 items to add to this thread when I get around to taking pics.

    Farfetch doesn't remove VAT like they say they do right? They said it is auto taken off if you're in the US dollar. I compared it to the price of the Euro and pound and it doesn't look like it is.

    ^ Looks to me like they do.
    For this for example - http://www.farfetch.com/shopping/me...riped-sweater-item-10363895.aspx?storeid=9182 - price is pretty much equal to Schwittenberg's price w/o VAT. About a $6 markup from Google conversion, but since that includes all duties (and duties on the sweater would be $60 if marked at full value) I'd say it's a pretty good deal.

    Edit: Sorry, I guess I don't know German as well as I thought I did. Looks like buying direct from Schwittenberg does save you $26, but then you're gambling that you can dodge the duty bill. (I think they use DHL?)

    (Obviously, the 20% code tips the scale.)

    I thought Schwittenberg's price includes VAT as they are in Germany like most European companies do? I thought most places remove VAT after you tell them you are in another country, I think Oki-ni does it and TBS.

    http://www.schwittenberg.com/Nach-Marke/Stephan-Schneider/Grau-braun-melierter-Pullover.html


    When you use that sweater and change your location the prices are:
    in US dollars 193.27.
    in British pounds 129.79 ~ 195 US dollars
    in Euros 144.5 ~ 188 US dollars

    The shop I bought it from is in the US. If you're looking at the Siki Im, VAT isn't an issue. I have no idea what their actual policy is for overseas, sorry!

    Schwittenberg's prices include VAT. But if you order from non-EU countries, VAT is deducted at the check out. Most European shops do it this way.
