    ^How solidly put together do they feel to you? The leather isn't so much peoples' complaint as the construction.

    I think the construction is well made but definitely not like crockett and jones/alden. oxford jcrew shirt for dirt cheap. edit. meis. jacket is an XS. Fit is true to size except for the sleeve.

    Those ervell jackets fit terribly IMO. I understand the look it's supposed to have, but just doesn't seem to work on 99% of people. It needs ribbing at the wrists if it's gonna have bigger arms like it does, as old models do.

    Bought a pair of Florsheim by Duckie Brown at the barneys warehouse sale. I don't know anything about dress shoes or the Florsheim brand so I went online to get more info. Found out that the shoe I bought is made of cordovan leather. All i know is cordovan means good quality [​IMG]

    "corodovan" just refers to the dye, and it doesn't necessarily mean quality unless its "shell cordovan" [​IMG]

    i have no experience with florsheim by db, but i've heard the quality and construction is solid.

    look forward to seeing them in your fit picks instead of the usual oc [​IMG]

    I like the ervell jacket. Kinda reminds me of the balenciaga egg bomber silhouette but less extreme.

    Yes. They have always made that model in shell. Currently they even make green, blue and cherry red shell models.

    huh?
    Fuck UPS, seriously. RO leather came today, but wasn't left because of the fake ass brokerage/custom fee. They give me a time of 8-8:30pm to pick myself, I get there and they claim they'll only take a cashiers check for the fucking fee. No cash, credit, personal checks, WTF!? [​IMG]
