    I'd assume all of the usual suspects do. Just depends on what flavor you like. The PTB is a pretty standard shoe.

    Just received two LBM jackets from yoox in my quest for a green sports coat. I am not sure which looks best color wise (they both fit about the same IMO - they need some sleeve shortening).
    1. Darker green "emerald" more like forrest green

    2. Olive/gray color termed "military green"

    Personally I would go with the darker (forest) one.

    According to the tag they are from this shop = http://atlasandmason.com

    Maybe send them an email and ask for ID?

    They look to be pretty poor quality. Tacky videos too.

    I'm not sure what signifies freshness in this context, but whatever.

    That the photo of them was of them being worn by someone in blue jeans, without socks, pretty much caused me to have little interest in learning more about them. That's not how I dress, nor the look I prefer, nor one typically addressed on this, the Classic Menswear forum. (Maybe the shoes would get more love over in Streetwear & Denim.)

    If the shoes appeal to you, fine. Buy them, wear them, be happy with them. But don't be surprised that nobody else here is expressing great interest in them.

    I am wondering if someone can tell me what is the name of this pattern. It looks like some type of birds
    eye but I am not able to confirm this, so maybe not.

    At work, a malfunctioning hand sanitizer dispenser shot a bunch purell onto my green shell cordovan boots and left some noticeable light spots (significant color bleeding when I wiped it away). What is the best way to remedy this?

    Thanks

    Convince your employer that since he was responsible for the malfunctioning hand sanitizer, and your insanely expensive and virtually irreplaceable green shell boots with immense sentimental value have been utterly ruined, he should financially compensate you for your loss.

    Oh, and I believe that GOJO owns the rights to Purell. Deep pockets there.

    You should probably be compensated for pain and suffering too.

    All joking aside, as I am sure you are not laughing. I would think that the color is still there. If you wax it, it should get darker. You may have to try and do mostly the lighter spot first, maybe with some green paste wax. You will have to experiment with it

    I feel your pain. I learned a valuable lesson after spraying my suede drivers with piss. Now I either squat to pee or cover them with papertowels

    By the way, I think you should request a refund from Purrell. All of our shoes are at-risk

    I wonder if the manufacturer of the malfunctioning hand sanitizer would cough up the price of a few pairs of cashmere socks, while we're at it.

    (I'm assuming the tragedy occurred in the United States. Our national sport is bringing suit.) (I'm in Maryland. Our state sport is jousting.)

    Hi guys, I just registered few minutes ago and presented myself in the Introduce yourself thread.

    Quick question: I'm looking for a coat, light grey, similar to this. http://www.armani.com/it/armanicollezioni/cappotto-monopetto_cod41588851bu.html By similar I mean basically it's shape, a bit tighter on waist and not too long (half leg let's say). Possibly well under 820 euros range. Do you have any brand to suggest?

    Thanks

    Every single menswear company will do a coat like that...it's hard to suggest a particular one on your description.

    Suit supply coats are nice and generic and should do.

    Best place to buy Alfred Sargent boots at good price? Looking at the Alfred Sargent Cambridge.
