    A fine and pleasant Monday to you, fellow enthusiasts. A bit messy outside. Phoning it in today, sartorially. J Crew 770 chinos, Lands’ End OCBD, Uniqlo lambswool cardigan, AE Central Ave belt and brown Strandmoks.

    Hopefully by the end of the week I can start scheming again about buying a pair of shoes or boots. Also this Friday is the date of my unique opportunity. So far it still looks like it’s happening. Can’t wait. Will post a report over the weekend.

    Is that a new box design? Are they solid like the old ones?

    No, unfortunately I can't make it down there on Thursday. Keep the SF flag flying for me!

    Gorgeous and breathtaking!! :worship:

    I stand by my statement (many times) that the Cambridge is an awesome shoe/pattern. Slap any color shell on it and you've got a contender for a sexy shoe!

    Do you pull the front and back of the waist to a straight line when measuring?

    I sure did. At this point, AE can really go fuck off. By no means am I a massive collector, but the 14 pairs in my closet were bought with Canadian dollars. Yet, promotions are domestic only? 50% more on the price of the shoe? And the ultimate annoyance...the Canadian price is still $50 more after exchange than the pre-promotion price.

    Honestly, this is some next level bullshit. I get shipping promotions and such never apply cross border. But price-point promotions and hell, NON-promotion pricing? I take some serious issue with that.

    They hold the upper hand to make anyone happy. A wild card MTO on a future item. :) Suggest this if you get the call!

    Went with brown Strandmoks and a cardigan today also. What’s the unique opportunity?

    Well guys, don't have to think about navy anymore - just got charged for a pair of bourbon Leeds

    I guess they weren't all sold on Thursday afterall - or held back some pairs. Perhaps some others got lucky as well.

    I can not understand why. It should not matter where you order from. You should get the same price that I get. Of course shipping would be more and the exchange rate is what it is. The one question that I do have is whose sales tax do you need to pay? Canadian and US?

    Late post. Natty Higgins for errands on Sunday and this morning. I was planning on travelling with them until I remembered the TSA. I really need that pre-check so I don't have to disrobe in the terminal.

    As we left the house my wife said she appreciated that I was dressing better even when we were out shopping. Boom!

    Pre-check is awesome, and HM's don't have a steel shank, so they won't set off the alarm in pre-check. Still have to remove in regular line though.
