    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Anyone familiar with the Bay Area can share where to look for deals on suits (cheap). I am considering hitting up the malls first to check out low-end retailers like H&M, but even then, a lot of the stores do not carry everything. So which particular H&M store (which mall?) actually carries suiting/tailoring because I have never seen such a section previously. Another place is probably BB store in Santana Row, but with my current circumstance I consider that even too expensive.

    Looking for a black shoe for interviews and the like. The AE Weybridge in black is on sale at Nordstrom's for just $162.90. Sound good to you all?

    Some might say that a floating medallion isn't very conservative and you should stick with a punch cap, or captoe, but I think these would be good.

    Weybridges at that price are a great deal (I paid $210 at the Nordy's sale 3 years ago), but as stated, they are a little flashy for interviews. Get black captoes for that, but then treat yourself to the Weybridges in Chili. My favorite AE!

    From what I've read on SF, the plainer the shoe, the more formal it is, and vice versa, but I agree with patrickBOOTH. I think it would pass muster with most people and the price can't be beat!

    I ordered the same shoe from Nordy's, also in black, and I just got them today - half an hour ago. My first nice pair and I'm very pleased.

    I wear a 6EE in most Allen Edmonds shoes (various lasts). I was wondering if Aldens are similar sized compared to AE. Wider? Longer? etc.

    More specifically I'm looking for Monk Strap Oxfords and other styles not available in AE.

    Thanks

    I'm a Newbie to this forum, and hope I'm posting this correctly. Question: How do you determine the age of a Vintage Versace belt? I am seeing them referred to as "pre death" and I figure that affects the value. Here are photos of a belt I have and would love to know more about it. TIA

    It's hard to google if you dont know the name of the person, to find out his shop [​IMG].

    new to the forum and learning would this be considered a good year round blazer? if not please explain

    http://www.shopthefinest.com/showpro...ze-40-us-50-eu

    Yes, a medium-weight blazer is about as close to a year-round blazer as you can get.

    I am developing a fondness for not ironing my linen shirts and their crepe appearance. Also, I have always classified rayon as a synthetic fabric which I consider as a group to be low class (except for exotic hiking running fabrics).
