    Is there somewhere online where I can purchase a sample bottle of Terre D'Hermes with free shipping?

    Why don't you go get a free sample at a store instead? Nordstrom, Saks, Sephora, even Neiman's if they're feeling nice enough. They have all given me samples of more expensive scents, it should not be a problem. Unless you live in Antarctica that is...

    Or did you mean a tester, by chance?

    Can somebody describe this blazer as precisely as possible so i can find something comparable:

    I mean what material its made of, lapel "type" and perhaps designer/brand (that would be really awesome!)
    Many thanks!

    What's the difference? What I want is a small bottle with more than one spray so I can try it a few times.

    That would be a sample, and as my first reply stated, they can be acquired for free at many establishments.

    When i re-read your post, i wanted to make sure you were not asking about buying a tester bottle online (which is the bottle on display you get to spray in stores).

    Hope that clears up everything, hunting for samples is a hobby of mine, happy hunting my friend :D

    I own a pair of Cavendish. My color of suede is a shade or two lighter than that but they are excellent shoes and have a much more approachable last than the 348. For me they are way more versatile than double monks. Then again I have a far more trad/preppy style, so I love tassel loafers.

    But these loafers are maybe not the perfect time to use now in this ''winter'' ? Or they it doesnt matter what time in year you can use them?

    Keep, return, or size down? It's J Crew lambswool and I'm most concerned with the bunching under the armpits. Am I being hypersensitive?

    Sweater looks bigger than I'd like, but I don't have a stomach to worry about. Next size down might emphasize that too much for your comfort.

    I don't have a stomach either, that's part of the problem [​IMG] It creates these folds under the arms that swoop down and make it look like I have a belly. Anyway, that about settles it these are going back. I had the same issue with their merino vnecks.

    hmm
    either get that thing tailored or just return it
    because it makes you look like you have quite a potbelly underneath

    Does anyone know how to avoid getting stained socks when wearing leather shoes (particularly new ones)? And I don't mean just transference from recently waxes shoes. Often times it's from the leather inside that I've noticed stains.

    Thanks
