    Speaking of TV, if you haven't watched The Knick you should. It is fantastic and beautiful.

    The acting, settings, costumes and most importantly, the story.

    It's ALL top-notch.

    Hm, doesn't sound like me—I don't have a white moto jacket. :/

    Quality is always really nice, in Japan it's stocked alongside "artisanal" brands like Layer-0, incarnation. A lot of the design sometimes veers into eurotrash, but if you find a nice piece go for it

    In some US stores, like The Archive, it's stocked alongside the same. The branding is sorta lame, and yes, the designs veer deep into eurptrash territory, but that's just Italian designers.

    Ever since I moved UPS has been super unreliable. They consistently run late with delivery and sometimes show items as "delivered" even though I've been home the whole night and then the items randomly show up the next day or so. WTF.

    Isn't the Alden thread in the wrong side of the forum, i.e. shouldn't be in CM along all the shoe brands in the same vein like Allen Edmonds, Carmina, Crockett & Jones, etc.? Just got some Aldens myself so I checked that thread it feels super CM, it's mostly dress shoes and pants, people saying "wear in good health" and the official[​IMG] CM shoes pic pose with crossed feet.

    No animosity here, I fluctuate between SWD and CM, just curious. Maybe because jet started the thread?

    This is a pretty standard trick used by overworked drivers to keep their deliveries "on schedule" and avoid shit from higher-ups. Especially if your deliveries are towards the end of the day, that is almost certainly what is happening.

    This sounds like a pretty clever way to woo the high-buying-power customer, for whom "wow! customization" might be a more appealing proposition than "wow! value for the money!"

    That said, if someone were to leave a pair of white calfhair velcro high-tops at my doorstep tonight, I wouldn't object. It'll only cost you $1090.
