    ^ what was all the hype a few years back over Steven Alan pieces? I read somewhere that they were comparable in terms of fit and quality to BoO.. or were they crappy back then and still?

    SA sucks. A more expensive J. Crew. They occasionally have cool looking fabrics, but they end up feeling so shitty it's not even worth it.

    Any idea if the web store will be updated to reflect this?

    I dunno. Lol I'm guilty of buying two of their shirts. They had this decent SA wool navajo looking shirt there that I was eyeing. But somebody snatched up the SMALL. There was also some Klaxon howl work wear shirts. A thick canvas KH blazer that was 340 before the 40 percent off. Wish the cut wasn't so boxy would have consider it.

    Steven Alan is now mostly made in China. A wide variety of bros at work have jumped on the brand maybe inspired by NYC Gilt / GQ / #menswear hysteria. So yeah, like Rag & Bone... it's now a go to brand for late 20something/early 30something bros with a few extra bucks in their wallet.

    Haha, I was guilty of being one of those bros 2-3 years ago. I would buy anything just because Gilt was having a sale. I remember buying a bunch of Arnold Zimberg or something and thinking "what the hell am I doing? This stuff sucks." Even then I could tell SA was pretty bad.

    inevitably and unfortunately so many brands do this... in order to grow and meet demand they outsource, move their shit to China and next thing you know they're the featured brand at Target! :facepalm:

    Mostly this. Not a fan of the shirts, the ones I've tried on fit worse than jcrew, their other stuff can be better- the pants I have from last season were made in the USA and are pretty nice.
