    Sneaker repair shops

    Persol 2747's: opinions?

    I'm thinking of picking up the 2747 persols but wanted your opinions before I take the plunge. I tried on both the 54mm & 57mm and the 57mm suited my face shape, but they felt big and had some wiggle room. Can these be adjusted to make a tighter fit? I don't want to go down to the 54mm because...

    skyvalet sale

    damn, it didn't take long for their selection of EG's to run out of sizes. had my eye on the Beaulieu for awhile and saw they were marked down to $875, but alas my size is out of stock. oddly enough, I signed up for their email list and didn't get anything in my mailbox regarding this sale -- I...

    Do you expect compliments when dressing up?

    I had a thought the other day when trying to decide on my next pair of dress shoes, do men expect compliments from women (and other men) when we dress up, or do you do it for your own sartorial edification? I think it's a given that most of us feel a sense of pride and confidence when we wear a...

    Edward Green 888 last: more elongated?

    can any of you EG owners give me an idea of how their 888 last fits compared to other lasts from English shoemakers? I was checking out skyvalet (or was it Leffot) and they have their sizing listed as UK8.5/US9D. I wear a 9D on the Alden Hampton last and a UK8F on the Alfred Sargent 724 last...

    shadesemporium.com - legit?

    anyone ever ordered sunglasses from this site before? if so, what was your experience? I ask because they sell sunglasses for well below the MSRP of other competitors, so naturally I think something is rotten in Denmark.

    Ray Ban Caravan

    does anyone know if Ray Ban makes this exact color of the Caravan anymore? What about the sizing? I'm afraid that the 55mm might be too big for my face, so I was curious if any of you have the 55mm and what your thoughts are. I ended up cancelling my order with opticsplanet because they didn't...

    so what's the general consensus on DKNY clothing? I've checked out their suits and dress shirts and have only ever purchased their ties. are their suits worth buying? how do they compare when put alongside other OTR brands like Hugo Boss? could someone else explain the fit of their suits for me...

    Hugo Boss ties: made in Italy

    does anyone have an opinion on HB ties that are made in Italy? I took advantage of Macy's sale yesterday because their HB ties were 50% off - I especially liked the mauve/lavender/silver floral motif of the HB tie I purchased. however, I noticed it's of a thicker material than your standard silk...
