    No - just know him well and thought people here would be interested. Henry Bucks has/had field jackets too (don't work for them either!).

    I tried the Badger & Blade discount coupon at Mensbiz and much to my chagrin it didn't work. Was using what i thought was the current one. Has it changed? If so anyone know the new code?

    Have walked in there a couple of times and had a chat to Michael. Nice little store, often forget it's there though or nothing strikes my fancy on the day but it's great to have some local options for that sort of thing. Good to hear about your experience, hadn't considered them for shirts actually.

    Apparently they have their warehouse in NZL and if you want something done to their OTR suits it is done there before shipping to the store if what is on the local rack needs some adjustments.

    Not sure if it has changed but some products are no excluded. Try the Live Chat on their website or email them....they are usually very quick and helpful (PS I don't work for them either....hahaha).

    When it comes to shoe trees, do you guys have a preference of say, a single-tube tree over a double-tube tree (or vice versa)?

    The following assumptions can be made for this exercise:
    • both versions are made of cedar
    • both versions have a negligible difference in cost
    • the negligible difference is negligible to you

    Might be my imagination but I think the double tubes fill the shoe out a bit more. I tend to use them for wider shoes.

    Though my knowledge on the subject is...negligible.

    I try to never, ever click on those Executive Style articles, because I unerringly know that I will regret it.


    NM, I prefer the double-tube trees with the spring-loaded piece on the side of the toe. Not only do I think that they fill out the shoes more, but the piece that fits into the heel also tends to be more rounded and so it doesn't press against the inside of the heels of the shoes as much.

    Of course, I'm probably over-thinking things, but I'm sure that's not the first time that's happened in this thread!

    i've got both.
    the only qualm i've got with the double tube is that, if your shoe has a more elongated last, there will be a gap between the base of the shoe tree and the heel (or toe, depending whether you slide it forwards or backwards).
