    Are your friends and family used to you being accosted by strangers and greeted as "Stanley" yet?

    PS I still owe you a picture of the Van Buren tower apartments in Oakland.

    Apparently it's not that low rent!


    Yeah, but that was out the ability to filter based on size, brand, etc. Incorporating all listings with these added capabilities would eliminate many users's reasons to bitch.


    Eh, the point of B&S on SF was never to generate huge sums of money, it was to create a neat feature for enthusiasts to be able to trade their wares to each other. Aside from a few power users who pay to have unlimited bumps, I doubt that aspect of the site generates much in the way of income.


    I smell lawsuit.



    There's no way that site is doing enough business to generate going public. How much in Revenue/EBITDA do you think they're doing at this point. If the figures were north of $10MM/5MM, I'd be pretty surprised.


    Wow. Just wow. Given those sorts of fees I'd imagine that it would put quite a damper on growth.

    The point, Stanley van Buren, is not to discuss it publicly thus helping Arun Gupta prepare as best he can for the impending smackdown, but for Fok and co. to secretively plot nefarious intimidation and obliteration tactics for all who cross SF--be it sons of Russian oligarchs in the Bay Area or child CS prodigies capitalizing on a community's yearning for a more advancing selling platform than the 13th century byzantine bazaar currently in place.

    in other words ... do you smell what the Fok is cooking ?

    What the marketplace needs is an automatic function whereby sellers who don't post actual measurements are locked into the CESspool for a week. Sellers who post 'see measurements on company's site' for clothing that isn't current season or where the maker doesn't supply measurements should be locked into the CESspool indefinitely.

    Favorite purchase of 2015?

    I think mine was probably Nike Sock Darts, but if I can mention something from the store then it was definitely the Document robe coat

    Gilt bought by Hudson Bay Company. Will supposedly allow you to make Gilt returns to Saks Off 5th Ave stores.

    That's put on hold for the time being, have grown to like the color as an an alternative to all my other monochrome outerwear
    (been meaning to get the lapels a bit trimmed and reshaped tho, but haven't cared enough to bother yet)

    Stay back. I've had this stupid thing bookmarked for a couple months, but have been getting laid out by Unexpected Real Life Costs That Come from Being an Adult.

    Back to luggage discussion. Does anyone have a suggestion for a rolling garment bag? Does not necessarily need to be carry on sized. I guess this is more CM than SWD, but I would like to be able to get 2 suits, 2 pairs of shoes, plus ties and accessories in there safely.

    Favourites:

    This has been the year of German clothes and heavy black cord for me, so my FHB cord "Ulf" cord jacket wins, even though I consider getting one in a size down..

    Meindl "Sasel" shoes. Perfect mix of rugged Teutonics and relative elegance. And super comfortable.


    Filson black briefcase. Bought in February, and been used almost every day since.

    and Our Legacy black "salt washed" shorts + black Birks "arizona" for the entire summer.
