    Does a Russian reindeer smell like Santa Claus and happiness?

    Given the nature of the product, I'd think Santa Claus and death is a closer descriptor. Also vodka.

    +1. I checked out the reindeer leather at a Cleverly trunk show, it's lovely stuff, with a beautiful and unique grain - and it smells very, very nice.

    Yup. Was yours the insulated one or a shell?

    i want its smell to resemble that of a cedar closet. very fresh, rustic and pleasantly aromatic.

    I'd say that's not too far off - they were treated with birch oil, and a little bit of that spicy woodiness is part of their scent. Seriously, it would make a great cologne.

    Shell. It had really tight shoulders. Maybe I should have taken the large instead of medium

    I see. The insulated one I got actually has pretty wide shoulders. If there are any fit issues (for me) it's with the very high armholes...

    Bourbon, If they fit, you should keep.

    Just bought a pair of brooks brothers strands at the Leeds, Alabama Allen Edmonds outlet on sunday. Brown factory-firsts for $110. The sales clerk told me they had an email come in about the sale, just as I was about to lay down 200 bucks. Glad I went to church that day!
