what is the best place to get the lowest price on filson briefcases? thx
Crane's Country Store - They are a forum affiliate. Call them and tell them you are from SF. They will typically knock at least 10-15% off MSRP.
Anyone know what a size 20 in brooks brothers is? I got this thrifting and it fits me good i like the frabric and collar roll. Will prob get the box pleat removed
I think that is a boy's shirt? Not sure what the adult equivalent of that is. Possibly a small.
Ah okay. I actually heard some people here saying they buy large boy brooks brother shirts because they fit nice.
With USPS Priority Mail international how good is the tracking? You use the customs form to track right? I would be shipping a relatively heavy and bulky pair of boots to Germany (over 4 pounds). Buyer wants gift and value marked down as well. Just trying to see if it's worth the risk.
The tracking is as good as level of tracking/service provided by the federal postal service that takes it over at the receiving country. My guess is the German postal service will be quite good at updating the tracking. I have only had experience with USPS shipments to Canada, with several the tracking stopped at Canadian customs, and once I took receipt of the packages, tracking was updated to show that they were delivered. Hope that helps.
Thanks for the info. Yeah I ship to Canada all the time and Europe as well but usually I just take first class and hope the item arrives. These boots will be a lot money than usual and I would preferable not want to lose it.
^Sounds like you want insurance. Not sure how well that jives with marking down the value though...
how much should a good pair of custom made horween cordovan shell boots run me? local boot maker is charging $1800. seems steep to me but i dont know about these things
considering you could buy almost 3 pairs of Aldens at this price not sure why you would want custom? Plenty of group mtos
How much does it typically cost to get a button down shirt shortened? I have an ocbd that fits well in all dimensions but should be an inch or so shorter.
Also, does cotton twill fabric stretch at all?
What's a good place in the Chicago/Milwaukee/Madison area to check out some quality leather moto/bomber type jackets? I'm paranoid about buying stuff like that online.
I like the look of Keds' Champion slip-on shoe, what about something like this:
OluKai Lanai Tapa
Or the Jack Purcell's
^JPs all the way. They look, by far, the best.
