    Not sure what your price range is, but you could try Alternative Apparel or even Apolis Activisim. They had similar look deeper placket henley's as far as I can recall. Context has the Apolis ones on sale at the moment too I believe.

    I've never seen this brought up but I think the rubber toe shape is weird looking on Purcells, Chucks have the classic shape.

    I agree about the rubber toe on the Purcells being weird. I much prefer the classic as well.

    Is it ok to wear corduroy pants?

    Yes is the easy answer to the open ended question. As far as the other poster saying only thin wale being the way to go, I disagree. I have both thin and thick wale and both work well. I have a thick wale Engineered Garments cord and those things hold up to the cold weather well with their heavier weight and have a bit more rugged look that looks great with boots.

    USPS is the cheapest, but nothing short of EMS (Express Mail) comes with tracking. It'll probably run you $40+.

    Priority International (not small flat rate) has tracking, $43.5 for a regular box up to 20 lbs (equivalent to the price of your own packaging up to 5 lbs)

    A while back somebody reported Tricker's, but I think they may have been referring to Thom Browne main line. This thread says Alden.

    The ones I am looking at definitely look alden and not tricker's, but not on any last that alden is popular for. They're longwings with a really beautiful pointed nose, hard tapered waist.

    Not true

    True. Just did this last month. Trx # will be your customs number on the receipt they give you. It takes a day for the number to become active online.

    6-10 day delivery anywhere too. Customs form is short and easy. Allow 10 minutes for it, and you don't have to get back in line after filling it out.

    What's a good suggestion for thin cotton cardigans? I really liked J.Crew's cotton/cash but they don't seem to have much anymore. It's necessary they be not-so-warm or substantial.

    I think the only reasonably affordable quality cardigan producer that makes them regularly is A.P.C I always see three or four every season, roughly the same cut and just in different materials. Sometimes they have nice Mother Of Pearl (MOP) buttons as well. Otherwise Jil Sander line always has a few, so does Margiela. The only other I can think of is over in Mens Clothing, a fair amount of boring cardigans over there.

    True that ^^

    I'm sure you would need anything from an XS to a XL in AA, as sizing is wack.

    I'd also like a few ideas if possible...

    Personally, I'm looking for something with the same coloured sleeves and body. Preferably all wool too.

    150 bucks is way way too cheap for a decent varsity, unless BR / Gap / J Crew make one.

    I would wait around for TOJ to make them again.
