    Nah, I'm comfortable with the people here. Everybody seems genuine. I just wanted to get a gauge of how I should go about things in the B&S market since it was my first time. I'm sure everything is fine, no need for Ebay. Thanks guys.

    Does anybody know if Marshall Anthony is closed down?
    I ordered items a long time ago which havent reached yet. Nor have i received any refund.
    Their customer service has stopped answering my mails and the website says "closed at the moment".

    Also I recommend funding your paypal account with a credit card. The one time I had a problem (elsewhere, not B&S) paypal were shitty about giving my money back, but one call to amex and I had an instant refund from them (and they assured me they would get their money back from paypal, eventually).

    Looking for some advice one a gift for my Father. He has just started collecting watches. Has 2 so far. We got him a winding box for Xmas. Is there any other kind of useful accessory or something that would make a good gift in the sub $250 range?

    Perhaps a couple of straps and a tool to swap them with. This depends on the watches he has, obviously.

    Don't watches need special straps? One of hi watches is broken as he has spent several months trying to source a link for the strap as you can supposedly only use links from (Cartier? maybe) and they cost a fortune and he can't find any.

    Depends - most watches that use leather / croc straps can be swapped out easily with a strap changing tool for another strap of the same size (lug width). Watches that use metal bracelets will require dedicated links for resizing, but even most of those can have the metal bracelet substituted for a strap with the use of a simple tool. Quality generic croc straps can be had for $120-$150, and of course, can and do cost a lot more if you buy dedicated replacement straps from the manufacturer.

    Consider also a nice watch storage box or a subscription to a watch magazine (Watch Time is pretty good) as alternate gift suggestions.

    Also - try asking for suggestions on the watch appreciation thread here: http://www.styleforum.net/t/36253/the-watch-appreciation-thread

    Lots of dedicated watch nuts in residence and ready to help.

    I just picked up a pair of rich forest/fern green corduroy pants. Found a picture of them because my phone is dubious when it comes to colors.

    Anyway, they beautifully match my hopsack tan blazer in color and texture, but I am having a difficult time visualizing a shirt which would match well.

    I may just wear a rust colored sweater as I feel that would be the best color match.

    Any other suggestions? I feel like blue would just be off, any shade of green, yellow, or tan would be too close in shade to the pants or jacket.

    I'm thinking pink might work, but pink and green is a spring combination I feel, and corduroy is a fall/winter fabric.

    Here is the shade of the pants, would love any suggestions.

    Not sure how I feel about yellow, but a burnt orange would be nice! That's a great color though!

    Yea, but burnt orange or rust is a sweater color, not a shirt color.

    If I strip out all the color of my rubber boots using alcohol wipes by accident. Is there an easy way to restore them?

    Would using some sort of leather color polish work?

    So wear the pants with a white OCBD, under a burnt orange crew neck sweater.

    Cords and sweaters are a natural pairing, since they're both pretty much cold weather clothing items. (Nobody muddy the issue by pointing out that there are corduroy shorts, or that he wears sweaters on 90 deg. days in August.)

    A white shirt adds little color interest to the equation, but if you're already talking fern green and burnt orange, the last thing you need is to add some additional color to the mix. Besides, under a crew neck sweater, just how much of the shirt will even be visible? The sweater takes the shirt down to the level of a minor accent piece.

    Possible, possibly not. The trick is to spot quality -- to be able to say "this is good" or "this is bad," whether it's from Bean or Brunello.

    Anyway, regarding the green cords, I wore a green surcingle with a yellow BB OCBD (kind of a peachy shade), and it looked pretty good. I wouldn't wear a yellow shirt with a tan jacket, though, but I hate tan jackets with GTH trousers. Camel hair with subdued shades is great, but I associate that kind of look (bright trousers, tan jacket) with the dudes who get photographed hanging out with Fred Castleberry.

    But for the record, I only wear navy blazers with my GTH pants.

    Try using a silicone-based plastic cleaner - the sort you use to clean interior plastics in a car (you can get them from garages etc). There are a couple of products marketed especially for cleaning rubber boots but it's the same stuff just three times the price. It always puts a nice sheen back on mine, and lubricates the zip.
