    I've gone to the philly rack and haven't seen much there, that place is kind of a dump. I've never been to the last call though. I'll check it out. I don't really like ordering from gilt because the shipping seems so slow.

    lol wut? Their shipping is pretty fast... Maybe you mean the occasional delay before shipping - when they say it won't ship out for a couple weeks - btw don't necessarily believe this, from my experience if the item says it ships two weeks after the sale 1/3 of the time it really doesn't ship for a couple weeks but 2/3 of the time it ships out the next day.. sometimes the same day I ordered.

    It depends, some things come from New Jersey somethings come from mid-west I believe. You need to get over your fears of trying new things. It's a trend I'm noticing in your posts [​IMG]

    Lately everything I've bought has the shipping address as Kentucky... which has made things insanely fast... I'll get a shipping notification one afternoon and the very next morning ups is dropping it off at my door - less than 24hrs.

    Yeah it's true [​IMG]

    Yeah I guess I mean the delay. Everything I ever want on gilt sells out so fast I never really have a chance though.

    Can anyone characterize the size difference between the J. Crew Regular Fit, Tailored Fit (J. Crew Factory online), and their new Slim Fit offering for their casual shirts...unfortunately, I do not have a J. Crew store nearby to try these on...any help will be greatly appreciated!
    Can't help you, but you could search for it here: http://www.styleforum.net/showthread.php?t=43730 Or ask them, I'm sure someone there will know.

    Also, someone pmed me about the sizing of my uniqlo button-down. For easy searching reference, I'll go ahead and post it. Here's the measurements on my large, uniqlo/+j white button-down shirt:

    p-p: 19.5
    shoulder: 17
    length: 28
    back length: 30

    I measured seam-seam, and the length from the point where the collar touches the shoulder seam, straight down to get the length/back length. It fits like a small. I actually bought this in Europe, so hopefully the sizing is similar in the NYC store. Not sure if the +j/uniqlo collaborations were different from normal uniqlo sizing. If anyone would like to confirm sizing in the NYC uniqlo store, that would be great. A lot of people seem to ask questions about uniqlo shirt sizing.

    Yes. If someone could confirm on sizing of Uniqlo's current line of small shirts I'd be most appreciative!

    I'm looking for a slim/skinny suit to wear in a dressy-casual context. Something like a Dior Homme suit or the discontinued Naked&Famous suits. Any suggestions?

    Have you thought about Thick as Thieves? Not sure what your price-point is, but their suits are an excellent value for the money. I'm very satisfied with my bespoke charcoal sharkskin in the house cut.

    I gave it a brief look before, but I can't remember how much they cost.

    Yup, the sharkskin suits cost a bit more (maybe a few others) at $500, but the rest cost $480. I met up with Jason, so my suit fits perfectly. Since you're in Canada, look over the how to measure videos he posted on his site and have someone take precise measurements for you.

    Sweet, I'll look into it. Thanks!

    Can anybody suggest a good varsity with raglan sleeves? I saw one recently that had nice arrow points on the tips of the pockets but I can't remember who made it or where I saw it. Regardless, I'm looking for any slim fitting varsities with raglan sleeves. ??

    So I want some nice boots. I've been looking at GTs and 1K Mile but unfortunately they don't have my size of US 6.5D~7C. The only size I can find that I want is the Alden Indys but I would like to see what my other options are. Anyone know of any other boots that match up with these in quality that are available in my size?

    46 low achilles CPs - I know CPs run a bit large, would you say that a normal 13us would fit? 13.5?

    I'm looking for some casual white pants for spring/summer. Something versatile and relatively slim that I could wear with sneakers. Maybe something like SQ below. Any recommendations that are <$250?

    If you're a size 30 you should check my sale for the white Incotex pants. Pretty damn cheap for a well made pant.

    Those look great, especially the price, but I am 6' and need ~33" inseam.

    Got my first pair of selvage. Pretty excited. Plan was to not touch them, just wear them. However, they are too long for me. I have them cuffed with like a 2.5&quot; cuff which isnt my style. Do I get them hemmed? Do I wear them into the shower and shink them up? I am open to ideas here....
