    OK no one in the leather jacket thread could tell me so maybe someone here will know: is it crazy difficult to shorten a leather jacket's sleeves by the shoulder like you would a wool jacket with functioning sleeves?

    Yeah, the area was pretty trashed. Seems like ln-cc is okay though as their store is in a basement.

    The riots started from a peaceful protest over the police shooting of a man.

    Their sizing charts are so stupid.

    I often question the styling on retail sites. Yoox is exceptionally bad, but Gilt and Mr. Porter also have a knack for making stuff look awful at times.

    "Monday's violence started in Hackney, north London, at about 16:20 BST after a man was stopped and searched by police, who found nothing.
    Looters in a convenience store in Hackney Shops have been looted across the capital

    Groups of people began attacking officers, wrecking cars with wooden poles and metal bars, and looting shops. Violence then flared separately in other parts of the capital."

    The second part of the Gilt final sale is some how worse than yesterday's.

    I hope they styled that terrible Jkissi outfit and that wasn't his own doing.

    Mr. Porter is significantly better than the new Park&Bond that Gilt put out though, imo.

    I'm surprised by how much less I like Gant mainline shirts than Gant Rugger shirts.

    Sadly I have never found a retail site with the styling ability to make garbage bags full of wet feces look appealing. Where will such a site come to us? Topman is pretty good consistently though.

    I was reading about the riots all yesterday.

    have you tried moderntailor? the trial shirt fabric sucks (maybe except for the blue one depending on your standards) but the other ones are good, especially when different ones go on sale all the time
