    Do they sell Polo Ranger Boots for less at a Polo factory store? There are no Polo factory stores in Canada so I'm not sure. If they do...I'd consider a proxy.

    I'm looking to get my first pair of brown longwing wingtips. Want something that can go with Jeans as well as with a suit for job interviews, etc. Any recommendations for under $250?

    Unevenness in the weave resulting in bumpiness (or in extreme cases, knots)

    who makes high quality, lightweight turtlenecks that i can use as a first layer in fall?
    i've been bumming it in uniqlo heattech turtlenecks with some kind of cardigan or similar on top, but these things are synthetic and get fuck all hot. not necessarily looking for warmth, as i would have other layers, just something to achieve a high neck. silk blend or maybe regular cotton?

    presumed responses:
    jil
    mmm
    smedley

    You may have to go MTO for what you're looking for, or try Alden (both of which will run you over $250). I've been eying some Bass suede longwings from Need Supply (forum affiliate, and a good one at that), but they are a lighter brown (almost tan). Brown suede wingtips are easy to find, but longwings...not so much (I know because I've been looking for some).

    Ah, thanks. I think that's like my fifth question you've answered in this thread by now. [​IMG]

    I'm going to the tailor for the first time to take a button down shirt which I want to be slimmed down from the waist and also make the sleeves thinner.

    Is there anything I should ask/make sure?

    I assume you mean collarless shirts. H&M has these in droves ...
