Anything good except for the AEs? Everything else still seems way too expensive.
it's not that it is expensive...its just expensive for what you are getting. I saw a Burberry trench if that is up your alley, it was heavily discounted i think 799 from 1299.
Don't do it

Steven Alan has 30% additional off sale items with SUMMER30. Lots of great non-Steven stuff for sale.
Anyone know how those svennson oxford lace ups fit? i know the sneakers are the same as CP's, but never heard anything on these....
Not really. Dappered has a good roundup, and I would single out the Red Wing 8196 Round Toe Boot if you're up for a pair of boots.
Does anyone do packaging better than Mr. Porter? I feel guilty returning things, they're packaged so beautifully.
Part of the reason behind packaging so well is to compensate for their expensive products.
Haha those pants that they highlight at the end are seriously hideous. I was there today, doing some work for them. It's crazy how much you see guys dropping, literally a pile of clothes that must cost a few g's and the guys look average at best (style wise...too big polo paired with too big shorts and terrible shoes).
That is true. I got everything on sale, so wasn't thinking straight when I posted that. I paid next to nothing and still got the full boat in packaging - they even threw in a Mr. Porter branded suit bag and another bag for free! But if I'd paid retail, you're right - I wouldn't be so surprised.
The corner can be hit or miss. Usually somewhere in between Mr. Porter and Yoox
I love Mr. Porter's packaging too. There's something about getting a white suit bag with a personalized placard with your name on it that just instantly cements something as "yours". It does tend to make things harder to return from a psychological angle.
I'm gonna be the voice of dissent here and say that I don't like the packaging. It's a huge waste of resources, and what does it matter how it's packaged as long as it gets there in one piece?
