    Personally, I think it's about time he got off the side lines and back in the game so to speak.


    Hasn't it been about a week now, that is since his last purchase? LOL

    Is vintage Rioja very similar to Vintage Cherry?

    vintage cherry, vintage oak, vintage rioja. i think their is enough variance between the two that if you got starkly opposing styles youd avoid any redundancy

    Great comparison Namor.

    I am considering the St James in Cherry or the Gable in Oak.
    I have the Hayes in Rioja so not sure which is the best choice.

    Right? But that Gable is pretty amazing also. I tried the navy gables when Barneys had them on super sale and was so mad they didnt have them in my size.

    I'd get the st. james. They are iconic. Out of my size but i think I'd prefer the TG73 anyway. I go back and forth between liking and hating the stitching and the v-cap on Gable.

    Those came out amazing! Gold Delapre looks so good IRL. I have to ask you about those trousers though, I've never actually seen you ever wearing denim. Are those strictly for posing in, brohan? :D
