    New SF member and not sure where to find the answer you're looking for? Have a quick question that doesn't belong in a current thread? Welcome, you found the right place.

    This is a weekly thread where new users can ask quick questions and get a solid answer. If a thread already exists that would be more helpful, we will point you in the right direction. The only stupid question is the one that isn't asked.....so ask away!

    I haven't heard quite as much about this company recently, but I've gotten a few items and the quality was great. Check them out for a new leather bag.

    I've always considered sneakers to be ultra-casual and while i do have a pair of Converses, I rarely wear them except when i am really dressed down. However, I travel a fair bit and it is a pain in the rear to pack dress shoes or boots - for starters, i'll need atleast a couple and usually, when i walk, i am walking around a lot with my camera (5-6 hours a day). So i reckon a pair of nice, smart leather sneakers would be the way to go. I can wear one and pack a second pair, if need be.

    So here are my requirements:
    - classic styling: not too much in the way of frippery, or "fashion statements" on the piece. A small bit of tasteful accenting is fine
    - leather
    - high quality

    I see CPs have a good rep here as do Buttero. Anything else? I am ok going up to $300-400 if i must, but if i can get a comfortable, classy, well-made for less, I wont complain.

    TIA!

    (PS: Out of curiosity, for those of who who prefer to travel light: what do you do when you travel for half a week to a week? Suck it up and take multiple pair of shoes, or just one and maybe pack a shoe tree?)

    One pair in the bag and one on your feet. I have three pairs of Buttero and love them...wearing s pair now. They are great shoes.

    Same for me: one pair in the bag, one pair on my feet. Usually something functional and something stylish.

    Thanks for that, Brian & @MurlSquirl.

    I guess i'll have to deal with 2 shoes on a trip. I live in Asia and generally, being out and about all day means regular change of clothes, so i typically tend to pack enough clothes to change regularly and not rely on the hotel clothes-wrecking service aka laundry. But i guess that cannot be avoided. I guess a pair of nice sneakers in the bag and a pair of nice leather shoes/boots while on the plane is a good two-fer combo.

    Ordering a pair of AE Long Branches as we speak, actually - ever since i've joined SF, I've gotten a thang for boots. My 4th pair of boots en route (all AEs - i know my size in them and dont trust buying any other brand online). Damn you all. :)

    Been looking for this coat that Aziz is wearing for a LONG time and no one can seem to identify it. Been a couple of thread on reddit asking about it as well without any identifiers.

    Any idea?

    I was wondering if anyone could recommend a tailor good at working with denim/khaki's in the DC area?

    Thank you in advance!
