    Hi Guys, Activeendeavors is a new affiliate of Styleforum. In order for you to help the forum, you should use the coupon code for 15% off: styleforum BTW, to plugg them, they have 5EP and Rag&Bone, and the latter are particularly well priced right now at $200 for RB1's. So spend all your well earned money and help a good cause (us). Fok.

    Awesome. Does the SF coupon only apply to full-priced items?

    Unfortunately, yes. Still, RB1's for 170?, no shipping?

    Me too, especially cuz it actually does seem like they don't make 32x34. I could have sworn I tried them on though....

    Oh, I'm not complaining. BTW, am I the only one who thinks the light denim on the site looks kinda cool?

    We're in the exact same boat. Email them and complain -- I did.

    BTW, 15% is amazing. Is that a standing offer, or limited time?

    Did they actually tell u they don't make 32x34, or have you just never seen them?

    I have been told by Louis Boston, Circle Boutique, and Active Endeavors that they don't think the size exists. Apparently, the buyer at Denim Bar always orders the longest lengths first, so when I stopped by there and asked for 32x34 they were surprised not to find it (this was just a couple days after Denim Bar got their shipment). I've contacted Nathan Bogle at Rag & Bone, but haven't received a response. But at this point I've pretty much given up.

    God, those light blue RB1s look awesome. Awesome awesome awesome.

    Oh, does anyone else think they're NOT RB1s? They're nothing like the other RB1s, and they have a cinchback.

    Oh okay. Then I still stand by my "I tried a 32x34 at HTC" story :p For what its worth, the 32x32 I'm selling have a defect and they are going to replace them. I asked if they could replace for a 32x34 and he said he would if they have the size. If they didn't make 32x34, he probably would have said so. Maybe its just rare?

    It's possible. If they send you 32x34, please let me know.

    I can tell you that Active Endeavors had a 32x34 listed on their site last year in the trouser straight selvage. When I ordered it, they said they didn't have it and cancelled the order. [​IMG]

    I'll keep you updated.

    To get things back on topic, I'm glad to see Active Endeavors. I've had nothing but good experiences with them, their prices seem to be competitve even without the coupon. With 15% off (and no tax) I don't have much of a reason to shop anywhere else :p

    That is a standing offer, as long as we keep our relationship with them. We are on a trial basis right now, so don't be skimpy and make us look bad. BTW, there's no rule against telling your friends to use the coupon and to join our ranks.

    Well, of all the online boutiques out there, they don't have the largest selection (I think that goes to Revolveclothing), but I would say that they carry better brands and a better edited selection: Rag & Bone, 5 EP, the Cast (they should be getting new stuff soon), etc... No one else except for Steven Alan carries these online, AFAIK, and Steven Alan never has any coupons and in general their prices are NYC prices, while Active Endeavors are not. For comparison sake, most places (Barney's, Steven Alan) sold the Rogues Gallergy Shoreman sweatshirt for $199 (c'mon, that's $200), while ActiveEndeavors sold the same for $174. RB1's in the heavier denim were selling for $235 at Rolo (SF) two seasons ago, and I know that they go for even more now. Those are significant differences.

    And you may say, hey, LA Guy is hardly impartial, and that's true; but I've gotten a The Cast hoodie, the Shoreman hoodie, and a pair of 5EP straight resins from them in the past 5 months from them, and that was before they were an affiliate. (Holy crap, that's a lot of money).
