    Okay, let's not try to play it off here. Wealth management, trading, and investment banking are all different parts of finance. PWM is not a part of IB and they do totally different things. Where did you make the connection from, the fact that all have to do with investments?

    You sound like a huge douche that tells everyone you work in "investment banking" to convince them that you're a baller/have a prestigious job.


    i am a total douche. i also work in the ib industry. please continue to stalk me. thank you.

    Lol he says he's going to be a trader when he "grows up". You barely even have a foot in the IB industry. Don't play.
    He probably just got a job and is starting to get paid which is why he is buying tons of expensive basics and acting high and mighty about it. Hes got 3000+ posts and was never even a blip on the radar until he tried to steal SQ's crazy ideas about sales and kop good shit. Too bad he failed at both. edit - this is also my final post on this stupid subject.

    Catching myself up
    FW2011 stuff looking really spectacular on luisviaroma.
    This led me to finding out Decarnin was replaced by some young gun Olivier Rousteing (25 with 2 and change years at Balmain and 5 at Cavalli which is ridiculously impressive, though I doubt he has formal instruction so who's to say how he does at the head of the label). They're also starting up a diffusion this Fall (though I doubt it'll have menswear) and that Balmain jacket with the fur hood is teh awesome. FW11 is probably my favorite season in a few years and I haven't even finished looking at all the collections (Bottega, BOTTEGA!) even Varvatos had a number of things I liked

    Finally decided to pull the trigger on this Burberry London coat I was going back and forth on (mostly about sizing). Figured if it was a little off, I'd take it to a tailor and have some work done. I get to the site, and I can't find it. Pull up the live chat window, and it turns out that all of the coats that didn't sell last season have been sent to an outlet. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    Unless it was made in USA or England (not likely), waste of money. Step your game up to Prorsum level.
    is opening cuff buttons on a blazer an easy job for a tailor?
    Most jackets have the buttonholes already sewn, they just need to be cut open (which is to say, it takes half a second with a seam ripper)
    You don't understand. Whenever you paypal dispute if you go directly to the payment instrument (bank/credit card) they will resolve it for you much faster than paypal and will take care of you even when paypal rejects your claim. I have never heard of a situation where the payment instrument would not set you right, but paypal would. Picture a big circle with a little circle inside. Big circle is claims that bank/credit card will give you your money, little circle is paypal. Not much of a ven diagram. Credit card especially there's not a whole lot a merchant/seller can do if you have even a valid claim your credit card will side with you. They are too big to care and paypal is too sheisty to match them on that. It's like car accidents. The system/law/police whatever pretty much just assumes that whoever is hind-most is at fault because it's not worth figuring out that stuff. Same thing with credit cards. My friends who run various small online businesses hate how this works because they've been burned by fake chargebacks many times, but accept it and factor it in as cost of doing business. Enough people apparently don't realize how this works, or aren't sheisty enough to abuse to really make it a huge problem...
    Mildly unrelated, but my bank recently sent me a new card due to suspicious activity on my account but didn't cancel/refund any purchases. Should have tried to get them to cover my Whistler trip and blamed it on some dirty Canadian hippiester

    After your post KitAkira I suppose I am not the only one right now who is going over Fall/Winter collections and picking up pieces that I want to get. Difficult process since I am trying to cut it down to 10 items and reasonable prices.

    The green Lanvin loafers are already off the list because they retail for $990 on Lanvin.com. The Burberry Prorsum tree sweater as well, I wasn't expecting it to run upwards to $1400, crazy pills.

    ... Can someone pm me when kvc throws up the pradas for sale?
    I'm betting that KVC will be selling them when the next Junya f/w come out [​IMG]
    I bet he keeps the shoes at least through ski season.
    Let's start a pool, everyone can throw in a buck and choose a date!

    man, I called this shit before he even bought them, but seriously, he should just man up when he buys shit and say he will probably end up selling them anyways. didn't even put them on sufu.

    Flirting with the idea of putting patches and shit all over my green "no more war" Junya jacket.

    I mean I want to stick with exaggerated Americana with a preppy focus for this summer, bit come fall I really want to start messing around with some more camo and go for a disgruntled Vietnam vet thing

    New Junior Boys album comes out tomorrow.

    Also, I'm going to get a tank top screen-printed with something Phillies-related to make myself seem like less of a weirdo outsider than I actually am, at least around my neighborhood.

    Just do it yourself? Costs maybe $30 for the set up, much less if you just iron something on. Infinitely cooler though
