    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.

    costume national lace ups


    Nice. I've wanted a pair of those costume national laceups. Did you get them from yoox? I was confused because they had what appeared to be the exact same shoe but for different prices. They look great though. The ymcs, are of course a classic.

    br & gs: thanks!

    chrono, yeah, i know, very confusing. I got the one pair that had my size. I compared several times but couldn't figure out how they differed. I'm very pleased though. I wanted a shoe with a bigger, bulkier toebox so these fit the bill, and they're really beautiful in person. I couldn't be more pleased.

    If you can get them in that color, they'd be at the full retail price which I think is around £250? Plal and other sources will be less, but you're restricted to three types of stock colors/leather types. Others in the MC forum would know more though.

    Those Polo's are nice. I'm also a big fan of the Brooks Brothers equivalent: http://www.brooksbrothers.com/IWCatP...&Parent_Id=522
    Those are made by C&J, and I think they're a variant of the Coniston model (or are the same ones, I can't recall at the moment). There's been some discussion on them if you want to find out more.

    i picked that up a while ago, maybe around 50%. well worth it -- extremely soft, and the way it's knit is interesting

    yeah, I'd say true to size or half a size down. I got true to size, and they're fine, but could have gone down half a size and they would probably have fit me a little bit better. I love them too.

    Don't worry all my purchases are planned so you better not have bought anything I plan on buying or I won't buy it and will have to plan on buying something else.

    I'm not digging the patent sandals, but everything else looks pretty good. Nice fit on the jacket too (or at least from the side view).

    I just got my blanket from Peasant's sale and the fabric has a nice vintage feel to it.

    +1 The green jacket is tops. Not sure about wearing it with matching trews....a bit Peter Pan-y. I think it'd look killer with the BF chinos, or dark denim

    now the sandals......grey patent designer sandals have no reason to exist.

    How funny...my feeling about mod squady guys of Oriental descent!

    I don't think I'll wear the green jacket with my Black Fleece chinos. I have my Jil techno pants on in that pic and next week if my MTM suit comes in I will get a pair of khakis.
