1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Hi,

    I'm trying to get boss belts at a slight discount? Maybe like 20-30%.

    Anywhere online or such? Regular Harry Rosen's prices are pretty high [​IMG]

    I tried eBay but apparently according to styleforum members there's not one real belt there.

    Why this obsession with Boss (of all brands) belts (of all items of clothing)?

    How many more threads do you plan to post asking about them?

    Try the west end room at the Bay on Queen street on a Friday (when stuff often goes on sale for the weekend). If its not on sale, you can ask the salesperson if they will give you the sale price.

    Note that I have a Boss belt and I have to say that the reversable belt I own from Tip Top is way better. The layers on the Boss belt that I own are glued together and and have come apart (I can't wear it until I have it repaired). Better belts will be stitched along the edges instead of glued.

    Use the search function on this forum and on the AAAC forum to search Boss and you will see that most people here are not fond of the brand (overpriced for what it is).

    Go to Made in Italy at Dufferin and Finch and get some Ermenegildo Zegna and Pal Zileri belts for $59. You will not find a better deal in town.

    The other thread went into a discussion on fake items and I happen to like Boss. What's wrong wrong with the brand?

    For someone in the early twenties, it's a pretty fashionable house.

    No more, I think the conclusion is that The Bay's West End is where I'll get them.

    Since you like Hugo Boss, want some Boss t-shirts? They are not fake and I bought them at Holts last year. See: http://www.styleforum.net/showthread.php?t=20979

    The cut and styling of a Boss suit can be great for someone your age (depending on your build). The problem most people have with a Boss suit is that, while it is not a bad garment, it is not worth its retail price point ($900cdn). It is not any better than suits made in North America that retail for half that price. But, a Boss suit on sale, with a very flattering cut can be a great find.

    See the following for more info on what people have against Boss:

    sorry t-shirts not my size

    I won't be buying a full canvas canali/zenga suit for a while until I actually make enough money that it matters. To be honest Boss is still better than 70% of the suits people in my age range wear for a undergrad student (unless their ibankers in the summer). Since most of the year I wear a suit a few times a month (in the summer daily) I think I'll survive.

    I have a pretty heavy build. 5'10, 200lbs. Not sure if it'll fit great but I'm going in for a fitting when I'm in town either later this month or in December (I'm away at university)

    Have you considered Made to Measure suits? Let me know and I will send you the name of a place that can make you a made to measure suit (fused) for $650 (more is you want canvas).

    the hugo boss corporate outlet store for canada is located in windsor ontario
    not sure if you're anywhere near that

    they generally have belts for $39 - $49
    some will be one off samples, some current season product overruns, some season leftovers - ithey're not seconds or imperfects - there is some very limited baldessarini stuff left over but most of it was all shipped off to the separate baldessarini division

    you can call them to see if they will sell over the phone and ship, not sure if they will though

    The $100 train trip to Windsor would kill the deal. It would be awesome if I lived near there. $50 is less than the ebay belt!

    I'll give them a call - maybe I can have my friend pick it up

    I haven't but I might, is my build not suitable for off the rack?
    Please PM me, if I don't get a M2M suit I think I have some friends that might be interested

    It has been interesting for me to read about Boss items in this and in other threads. I have a few Boss items myself, and although I have no major complaints, I sometimes feel that the quality is not too good for the price (now, I am no expert on clothing, it is just a feeling that I have). Actually, I found out that the cloth of a jacket that I bought comprised quite a lot of polyester (40 or 60%, I believe). That is supposed to be bad, isn't it? I guess I should have looked at the label before buying it.
    On the other hand, I find Boss' orange label stuff generally horrible.
    However, Boss has some nice leather sneakers that I think are good for the price (I am not talking about the orange label ones).
