    Does the corner.com do further reductions on sale stuff (like yoox does) or does it just hang at 50% forever?

    Thanks.

    I believe the key is to size up and pull it down over your ears...and I'm being serious thats the sad part.

    Question: Looking for a cheap, super-casual shoe (not boot) that goes well with chinos. I'm thinking a boat shoe or loafer. Am i way off base? Any help would be appreciated.

    So I've decided to get buzz rickson original spec chino. Now, I need some opinions; which color would be more versatile?
    Beige or khaki?

    Triad - you could try the wolf vs goat chinos too, they would fit over your calves. I think they are underrated, made in the usa, and can be had for relatively cheap during WVG sales.

    I don't think you can go wrong with either the khaki or the beige. Khaki is probably more versatile as it's a softer hue (not sure if that's the right word, but you know what I mean).

    Yeah, I was thinking to get the WvG chino too, but they have already sold out, haven't they?

    It looks like there are some assorted sizes/colors left on the webshop - check out the sale section.

    How do I get rid of long streaks of wrinkles (prolly got them when the jacket was sandwiched in between clothes) on the back of my leather jacket?

    Not in the past 2 seasons (maybe 60%). They used to drop pretty low, but they haven't been doing that and instead just hold onto things, unfortunately

    I think the gold-over-blue Dior 19cms went for around $100, after that they stopped super drops

    Which color would you pick for a college backpack? I was leaning toward brown but I can get white for cheaper.
    Would white be more versatile anyway?

    Brown will look better once it gets dirty. They are all pretty "versatile" I think.

    Alright, need some help with shoes that I've been struggling with for a while:

    Outfit: indigo jeans + navy or grey blazer

    Shoes: Looking for suggestions for something that's on the border of dressy and casual.

    Requirements:
    - No loafers. I hate loafers.
    - Minimal broguing/wingtips if any. I'm not a flashy guy at all, and would be fairly uncomfortable wearing wingtips.
    - Prefer some kind of dark brown color?

    What are my best options that aren't wingtips, but are also a little more interesting than a boring plain-toe blucher?

    If I can add to this question: Luke, do you (or anyone) have any experience with these Makr bags? Can you vouch for their quality? I know they're pretty hyped due to being made in the US...but that's also no guarantee of quality. When you can get identical bags from any Army suplus store for like $10, a man's got to wonder...

    Allen Edmonds Strands, lightly brogued cap toe balmoral with a very casual burnish. Damn comfy, very sleek.

    There are a few reviews online if you really search. One the reviews I from a guy who has had it for 2 years and it has held up and aged quite nicely. The reason I am getting one is it fits my needs perfectly having pockets on each side for a water bottle and a compact umbrella, enough space for a laptop, 2 textbooks, 2 notebooks and lunch. It also has a unique fastening system that makes the bags simplistic look that you probably won't find on an army surplus bag.

    Currently, all of my shirts have button down collars. Up until this point I have avoided straight collar shirts because they strike me as too GAP-like. Anyone else feel this way in that they perfer button dollar collars? Or am I being too inflexible? Or is there a time for both?
