    A shame the OS navy knit is sold out at OS in Europe, as it will be too expensive with shipping from the us.

    I don't get the home & tech part of Mr Porter, why would anyone buy headphones, speakers etc. and a 10k watch of a fashion site?

    Good service and customer support? Why wouldn't they buy those things from Mr P?

    You should hear a speaker / headphones before buying and any decent watch dealer, will give you a good discount if you ask.

    FINALLY someone decided to put me on a nationwide late night talkshow as a regular. Just signed on for 26 episodes of what is sure to be stellar TV (just kidding, the show is terrible). I'm just doing this to get out of the house, but are all actors paid this low? Making less than when I was an intern in University

    That's exactly it - there is an additional code in the sale email sent to the Founders Circle that will take 10% off your entire cart.

    That said, I think people got shy in the evening yesterday because we're at about 35 now, so shoot me an email at kyle@nomanwalksalone.com if you want to be in. I think at the current rate assume that after 12 noon EST we should be at capacity, so I apologize if you miss the cutoff!

    ^ I'm throwing a conundrum at you: http://www.nomanwalksalone.com/index.php/brown-plymouth-boiled-wool-blazer-1759.html

    How would you recommend sizing this, bearing in mind that I'm a 38/48/M in just about everything?

    - On the one hand, the measurements for a 38 look a little tight.
    - On the other hand, the description says that it should fit snugly and that loosens up with wear.
    - On the third hand, I believe you've told me multiple times not to wear tight blazers. :p

    So, ghostface won the LOUD & GAUDY challenge fair and square, but he has been so kind as to let me pick the theme of the next challenge.

    here are my thoughts but let me know what you guys think:


    CozyBoyz: To take the edge off the militarism, loudness, gaudiness that we've had, and in honor of the weather the Northeast has been having, I want to see people put together the comfiest, coziest, puffiest most down filled, wool sweatpanted(?), blanket wearing outfit you can think of. I want to see snuggies and I want to see slippers. But it has to be something you would wear outside for the day!


    Black and Blue: Like CozyBoyz, this came to mind when wearing the above linked extremely cozy outfit, and it is exactly what it sounds like. Wear black and navy blue. Do it in a sleek lanvin way with blue wool and black grosgrain, or channel a police officer with blue shirt and pants and black boots. Doesn't matter to me but just make this combination look good.

    haha yes I may have said that once or twice [​IMG] but I think you'll be happy with the 38.

    I've been thinking long and hard about that jacket, and the thing that keeps putting me off is that it just seems so damn short. Not sure how tall you are, but for me it would need to be at least 31" long, and preferably more like 32" or 33".

    Cool, many thanks.


    Fair point. 6'1", so kinda tall but probably not as tall as you. I might have to measure another jacket to see how it stacks up (speaking of which, having video measuring guides on the web site = awesome :inlove: ).

    CozyBoyz sounds pretty brilliant.

    Nice options 4est; I had the same two in mind in case I won the militarism (well, "FuzzyWuzzy" instead of CozyBoyz).
    But +1 for CozyBoyz.
