    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I second this, Buttero makes solid boots. No man walks alone has a nice reverse leather.

    The quality on Yang Li is good @pickpackpockpuck , but the designs are rather difficult to wear? for the small collection of menswear at least, the prices are astronomical. Haider on the other hand makes a lot more wearable garments for both men and women. Flamboyant as his overall aesthetic may be, but still easy to incorporate into ones closet. Most of the offerings are good, although some of the items are piss poor in construction like some of the trousers.

    Was about to buy a nice Inis Meain cardigan, but then realized that I would wear it 3x/year. Meh.

    ^It's not about wearing it. It's about having it. Get on board, man.


    That's the only bad example. Look at any of Gustin's other shirt offerings, and you get (presumably) wonderful fabrics, a choice of fits, and high armholes for the price of a Gitman on substantial sale. I just ordered my first shirt from them (slim fit, thank you), and will happily blow out all of my Gitmans on B&S if it works out.

    Fair enough. I'll await your report (for reals).

    Though personally I think GVB fit like shit anyway, despite incredible fabrics.

    Is there really more of a market for OCBDS or other non-fashunz button down shirts?

    If I need beaters I go to Uniqlo.

    If I want something dressier I go to Kamakura.

    Beefier I go to WvG or Epaulet or BBBF.

    Baller I go to Thom Browne or CM brands (the Mazzarelli shirts I picked up from NMWA are noticeably nicer than anything else I own shirt wise).

    Don't even bother with Gitman or BoO anymore.

    I'm actually debating between Butteros or Story et Fall as a pair of beaters. Was waiting for @reedobandito to receive his but looks like his shipment was delayed. Or maybe they just stole his money and are lying to him.

    RFT: That feeling you get when you set a limit for how much you'll spend on an item, then it goes for $20 over. Fuck responsible budgeting sometimes.

    My go to for OCBDs is solely Uniqlo [​IMG]

    Granted, I've had the same oxfords for years and they've kept me content. Quality is superb for the price

    ^ no argument, but the colors are limited and there are very few patterns avail in slim fit.

    There could definitely be more options, no doubt.

    With that said, selection is great if you're boring like myself and only wear white/grey/blue

    Can't remember who it was the other day, but someone noticed the price difference on an RO leather that was close to, or a bit over $1K USD, was only about $470 USD in the Russian ruble equivalent.

    Don't PM me. I won't help you.
