    Mr. Porter gets a bad rep for their bland/basic buys and the newsletters, but I continue to be impressed with their customer service. If they sprinkled in some interesting stuff they would instantly be my favorite shop

    Well it's ok to complement your wardrobe too, I just don't see them buying the really interesting pieces because they cannot be paired with chinos and boat shoes or whatever. I want to get some of the basic margiela tux shirts at below retail and it's one of thr sites I'd watch during sales for that sort of thing.

    Yeah gonna ask for measurements before I pull the trigger. The web store doesn't seem to mention any sort of return policy...

    I see this from other sites too that pair dinner shirts with khakis and it is understood since they have a certain look they want to do. I scope out some basic stuff on Mr. Porter (looking at the Margiela cashmere trousers right now) and just wait them out too. I have yet to find a comparable customer service to Mr. Porter though and I do remember that when it comes to other things that I could buy

    I've found the sites like Saks and B Goodman often get looked over when sale time comes around (specifically Margiela). Most of the time I can get some nice shirts under $100 and a rare nice piece at a similar crazy price since they also let you stack coupons

    Funny to see the workshirt mounted so elegantly, but I dig it. With the second jacket, though, there's way too much going on. To start, I'd remove the red lining and simplify the neck closure.

    Agreed - I like the neck closure on the shirt, but the jacket's a bit 70's busy

    Agree with the thought on red lining. May be just one would have looked better.

    These are custom made as per customer request. Trying to showcase some of our abilities on this side of the forum (being focused on classic menswear)

    Working on some more work-shirt ideas. Will post again soon.

    Thank you for the input.

    That workshirt pattern would look good in flannel too I think.

    My MMM boots have a hole in the heel of the leather lining. Less than a year old, pretty disappointing to be honest. Anyway, is there something a cobbler can do to patch it so it doesn't grow?

    If they're anything like like gats, you can dump some shoo goo in there and hope for the best. I'm sure amadar has covered this in one of his superiorly photographed online guides.

    RFT: I'm afraid to go ice skating in my unwashed APCs. Will this streak/fade/ruin them?

    The one thing I did wrong with my raw denim was baby them. They're made to get beat up, and will fade better with them. Go for it.

    I regret bleaching mine too much. Not sure if it's worth getting another pair though. I like what raw denim has the potential to be, but I feel like there's gotta be something else out there for me besides blue jeans.

    My favorite pair of NS's are 4 years old and have been to brazil with me = sweat and 35c weather, been pissed, puked, shitted on (dog for all 3 and human for the 1st) and had dirty dog paws on them multiple times, no to mention getting soaked during thunder storms etc. etc., last but not least a crotch blow out, which was repaired.

    At least it hasn't been declared lost (yet) but c'mon! A full week ago my package was at some postal facility just outside Toronto, having cleared customs, and it was showing that in the CanadaPost.com tracking system from which it has now been mysteriously expunged. I'll be damned if I have any idea how it recrossed the border after Canada customs signed off on it.
