    as with anything, it depends on what you can afford.

    If you can afford it and like it, i see no reason not to get that.

    The DVN shoes I've handled in person have been really outstanding. Shape/leather are awesome. If you think they'll fit your look, I definitely say go for it.

    I like it, and depending on your financial state and how you value your money I would buy it. I dont like overpaying for things though, I understand its a frame of reference thing, and in my opinion $800 for a cashmere sweater it a bit much. But hell for all I know your an investment banker clearing 800k a year and in that case what is $800 to you. Let me know what you decide to do because I would like to know about the quality of RLPL when it comes to sweaters.

    ...Now if those corduroy pants were to just go on sale

    they don't mark the item value down so you'll most likely get charged. but the free shipping and -VAT is probably still more than what you'll get hit with.

    snowman you can always diy the brick sole to darker sole...150 is significant enough diff in $$ for relatively insignificant detail...relatively. "blk" is better tho
