    Hey guys, I need a plain burgundy hoodie, stat. Must be full-zip and logo-fee. Anyone know of a walk-in place that carries one? Most would, i figured, but I tried both Target and Old Navy -- no luck.

    Just need something fast, cheap and reasonably slim for a costume. Thanks!

    I'd guess H&M as well.

    Thanks -- unfortunately, I don't live near either of those, it turns out. O_O

    Those look good if I end up ordering one, though. :fistbump:

    These ones are almost perfect, but I really dislike the arm patch.

    Damn, so close.

    When you say not raw is that because of the shrinking?

    If so then you should consider selvedge raw sanforized denim. Unsanforized denim can shrink ~10%. Sanforized 3-5%. The Unbranded Brand makes great budget selvedge raw sanforized denim.

    I'd actually be interested in this also as I want to have jeans which will not develop fades over time for "dressier" occasions.

    You can actually remove the arm patch, or do you mean the really small one?

    is there a way to "soften" a dress shirt? i have 2 BB ESF shirts that are so stiff/scratchy and i have no idea why. all my other BB shirts are nice and soft.

    thanks!

    Can I get a jeans reccomend?
    I have worn a pair of sz 27 APC PS for like 4 years now and they're pretty much perfect. I'm looking for a replacement with very similar fit and styling. I bought a pair of 3sixteen ST-100X but i'm really not happy with so much room in the ankle.
    What jeans can I buy? Japan or no is fine. Price is fine up to $350 or so.

    Put them trough the washer a couple of times, should soften them a bit.
    Search for reviews and brands at http://www.rawrdenim.com/ , really good site for all kinds of denim.

    I'd really appreciate any help I could get with purchasing a pair of Common Project Achilles Low. I'm pretty lost as to what would be the appropriate size. In my Nike Free Runs I wear an 8 but a 7.5 (US) would probably fit much better. In my Versace drivers I fit in a size 39. Should I get a size 39 or 40 in CP Achilles low?

    The fit is slightly large, i would say that you should go for a size. 39, unless you have a abnormal wide feet. It will also stretch slightly to suit your feet more.

    Guys, I need some help as a non-English native speaker. I placed a backorder for which I gave my credit card details. Unfortunately I had to replace such card because my bank called me saying my details had been compromised. I emailed the store saying my card details were not valid anymore (they hadn't charged yet any amount), and this is their reply:

    We can not make any changes at this time. Once we have charged the item and we have not been able to obtain authorization from your credit card company. At that time we can up date the card information.

    Should I assume that whenever they're ready to process the order, if the card authorization fails, they will contact me to supply the new card details?

    My main concern is that they don't keep the reserve of that item for me. They say I can call a US number to provide my new card details but I'd rather don't do it because a) my English over the phone is seriously lacking and b) it would be pretty expensive as I don't live in the US.

    Thanks in advance.

    Bonobos makes some jeans you may be interested in.

    I have a pair of their travel jeans which aren't selvedge but hold their color magnificently. They don't do a standard indigo tho they do lots of great colors.
    https://bonobos.com/products/travel-jeans?color=austin asphalt

    They do make a selvedge jean but I am not familiar with how much it fades.

    Hi all, I have $300 in gift cards to Bloomingdales, which is a place that I never shop. I'm thinking of getting shoes that I'd never ordinarily buy. The 2 I'm thinking about are:

    Ferragamo Giordano loafers:
    Pros:
    Kind of nice looking.
    I wear a lot of khakis with blazers, so brown shoes are best.
    On sale, so I'd only be $145 out of pocket.

    Cons:
    Are the bits too flashy/mafioso?

    http://www1.bloomingdales.com/shop/...=96&sp=1&rid=&spc=42&cm_kws=ferragamo loafers

    Church's Wingtips:
    Pros:
    I hear good things about Church's.

    Cons:
    Not on sale, so I'd be $285 out of pocket.
    I rarely wear outfits that require black shoes.
    I could probably get some AE's that look identical for half the price.

    http://www1.bloomingdales.com/shop/...492709&Quantity=1&seqNo=1&EXTRA_PARAMETER=BAG

    Thoughts anyone?
