    In my experience these are easy to find on eBay, and for much cheaper, if you're willing to wear pre-owned. $200 doesn't seem like such a great deal.

    Damn Yoox for stacking sales! A sportcoat that I bought last month just came in, and now the same coat in a light grey is on double sale. It's a brand I hadn't tried before, Montedoro, and it fits me like a glove. All the LBM is on sale too...

    It, or something like it, or something better than it, will be on sale at some point somewhere in your future. You made a commitment. See the month through.

    I've got my eye on you. It's three days out of the grace period. You've got 23 more to go. That's three weeks. Control yourselves.

    Some advice someone mentioned from last month: stay off shopping websites. stay out of thrift stores (though this isn't too bad as it's pretty cheap to match a thrift purchase). unsubscribe to mailing lists.

    Any words of advice for me.. there seems to be a good chance this piece won't come up again, or at least for a long long time (been waiting 6 months?) I know I probably shouldn't but the support would really help me out haha

    I'm late to the party but I'm in (whether official or not [​IMG])! Such a great idea for donating, makes it a community benefit and essentially doubles the cost of any purchase, making you think that much harder. Luckily I dropped my coat off at the tailor on the 1st...

    I have one Montedoro coat and love it. For the price can't be be beat

    Nothing like another endorsement to ease temptation... :plain: I can wait. They'll still be there in July.

    Nice tumblr, btw. Been following you for a bit.

    Ha I wasn't trying to ease your temptation [​IMG] looks like my work here is done.

    And thanks, I have found Tumblr to be an enjoyable outlet. Particularly for visually oriented folks like us.

    Future In-laws are throwing us an engagement party at the end of June. Going to be hard not to get a new tie for such an occasion. Thinking a trade may be in store.

    Oof that was tough. The Aquascutum was one of their new slim models in a size 34 - usually goes for $600 at retail and sold for $170 on Ebay. The vintage models are like tents on a tiny guy like me.

    I let it pass because I was away from my desk, but I definitely feel like I violated the spirit of the NPC... probably would have pulled the trigger if I had been sitting at my desk.

    MZhammer welcome.

    Jbarwick: When exactly at the end of June? You can buy a tie on the 28th.

    Everyone else:
    STAY THE FUCK AWAY FROM YOOX.

    Don't bite on the AE tent sale - I feel like there are always opportunities to get AEs for cheap. Last year on Black Friday I was able to snag a pair of Kenilworths for $160, and the year before I got a pair of chromexcel Bayfield boots for $150. The factory seconds are perfectly fine and they're constantly running promotions on those. Also, depending on your feelings about used shoes - I know some people wouldn't dream of it - like-new AEs can often be had for less than $50.
