    Equally, the other sticky von Rothbart thread with all links to shoe-manufacturers, -retailers, artisan
    makers and the various 'prawn' sites has gone as well,

    Admittedly, the thread was in need of updating.

    Posted this somewhere, no response so posting it here.

    What do you guys think about this Belstaff[​IMG] Brad jacket

    Got it at $1,395 from jcrew. It's a masterpiece. What do you think?

    Should I ever wear them with gloves in a very cold weather? My first time to try leather gloves. If you recommend I wear them with gloves, which of these 'unlined' Fratelli Orsini gloves would you recommend?

    Now what do you think about these limited edition boots from bedstu?

    [​IMG]

    Got them at $795. Another masterpiece. What do you think?

    Now would recommend me to invest in this jacket from Belstaff?

    Thanks in advance for your participation.

    2 Questions:

    1. What do you guys think of www.ties2pillows.com I'm thinking about purchasing a few ties from here (Trying to shop on a budget, I'm only 21 making $30,000 this year).

    2. I'm trying to buy some Allen Edmonds "McAllister" shoes in size 12 D (Walnut Calf) but they seem to be sold out in my size almost everywhere. What do you guys suggest? I need these shoes!

    thetiebar.com. $15 a tie, and pretty good quality. And a great selection of patterns. The stuff on your site looks to be so widely variable that I wouldn't trust it- looks like everything from nice ties in unknown condition to really crappy novelty ties. Fun for the occasional purchase, but it's especially a bad idea if you don't know what you really need to be looking for. As for the shoes, call Allen Edmonds and ask about seconds. But make sure you're fitted first- you may think you're a 12D, but if you've been wearing sneakers, that may be completely off for dress shoes.

    Alright, cool thanks a lot! Also, what do you mean by asking Allen Edmonds for "Seconds"?

    Second quality. Usually shoes with minor defects, though many here have bought them only to find absolutely nothing wrong, which actually seems to be the dominant experience. They're sold at a discount, of course.

    I don't think AE will be discontinuing these anytime soon. You could call them directly (although, it is better to get sized in person). You could also order them online at Nordstroms and Amazon.

    I am planning to buy some Zara shirts on sale. Should I size up 0.5 inches for neck shrinking or go to a normal size?

    I attempted to start a thread and it said it went to the mods for review

    1 - Is there any notification when (if) it gets approved?
    2 - What are the conditions for an acceptable thread?
    3 - How long do I have to be a member before I can start threads freely?
    4 - How long does it typically take to approve a thread?

    I love mine. They are IMHO the best summer pjs going. I have four pair, two white and two blue, but they're really beginning to show their age. I'd like to get more, but money's tight and they've gone up to $135 a pair! If I knew who made them maybe I could find them for less, but I have no idea. Maus & Hoffman have them made for them with no manufacturer name, RN number, etc., they just say "Made in USA." So OK, here they are:

    Who makes them?
