    I should've been more clear, I just wear J Crew for casual wear. For dress shirts you can't fuck around (i.e. Borrelli, Barba, Finamore)

    Probably one of the worst brands for sizing inconsistencies is RRL [​IMG]. Drives me nuts since the only option I have here is buying it online.

    This is Gieves & Hawkes by Hickey Freeman, correct? Navy windowpane SC/orphan. Regardless, worth it for personal use for, say, under $70?

    Yep, HF. For personal use, sure. But you could probably do better at that price!

    Yes by HF. If it fits and you really like it, go for it.

    Also, quick question for all you Saphir knowledgeables... do you go for the medaille d'or rennovateur, or the regular?

    Not thrifted, but needed since I am cleaning up 3 months worth of stuff after my move to Nashville.

    Slowly tasting all of the local craft beers. This is by Blackstone Brewing Company, their St Charles Porter

    Not really thrift prices, but Loake is on gilt right now if you have credit handy. I'm debating whether the $209 price tag is worth it for their suede dubmonks...

    Whatchu think thrifty gents? Worth it at that price?

    At that price I think it actually qualifies as a thrift. $8 a tie? Sheesh.

    I caved and bought the Loakes. 20% off with 'MY20' coupon at checkout. Ended up priced just a little higher than AE seconds...

    I remember it was around the holidays, but a few people were talking about a tie site that sold reasonably priced grenadines at about 25-40 bucks? Does anyone remember what it was?
