    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.

    GetSmart - Nice pickup. How do you plan on completing the outfit?

    my go-to will be black trousers...otherwise dark denim or dark brown cords. I have a pair of burgundy cords that might look cool if I want to have a LOT of color going on. Black shoes, brown shoes, red shoes.....one good thing about burgundy is that it goes with a black colorway just as nicely as a brown one.

    You MUST try Leather CPR (http://www.leathercpr.com/) on any / all leather goods (except suede, of course). This stuff is amazing and makes new, stiff leather much suppler. I have used this remarkable compound on all my leather goods with great success and never been less than happy with the resulting effect. Bargain Outfitters is getting new stock in on 5/7 and 1/2 price at around $7.00. Bed, Bath & beyond carries it but at the regular $14.97 price.
    The Following is an excerpt about Leather CPR from Linda Cobb's #1 New York Times Bestseller, Talking Dirty With The Queen of Clean.
    "This miracle product conditions and cleans all types of leather, except suede. Totally neutral, Leather CPR can be used on leather furniture, car upholstery, purses, shoes, and equestrian equipment--and on any color leather. It is without a doubt the best leather cleaner I have ever found." Page 214


    Linda Cobb, The Queen of CleanÂ[​IMG], is a #1 New York Times Best-selling Author. She has authored six books on cleaning, all of which have been bestsellers. Leather CPRÂ[​IMG] has been awarded her prestigious seal of approval for being the best leather care product available.

    Perhaps SF should dedicate a sub-section devoted to the caring of clothing...

    Ron Herman is a RIP OFF for the oxfords/shirts!!

    I used to buy the plain basic oxfords for $400 when I lived in LA and then when I moved to NY I realized at BG they were only like $275-95. Even now the broadcloth oxfords don't hit above $300, the Sea Island Cotton shirts are $420 (tux shirt $520), the linenshirts are about $395 and then there are some more poplin like cotton shirts for about $375.



    i think the oxfords were like 220 at bg back when I bought them from there
    they must of increased a lil bit

    I was considering picking up that Loomstate shirt on the top right too, although I prefer the shirt in white.

    I really, really like that v-neck dot sweater at the bottom. Where did you find it, if you don't mind me asking?

    This is the one piece I posted that I can't convince myself to buy yet. The $265 price tag is kind of steep.

    Yeah, I just saw it on Azalea. I'm always hesitant to buy anything from Theory at full price, because it can usually be found on sale later on. That, and it's not like I need a sweater right now in Florida...

    I sure did...they had it in white an navy; but, it was also $3500 and I didn't feel like I needed to spend $1k more than I did for a notch lapel and trim.

    Thanks. Wearing it now actually. The medium was a good fit, although a tad short; but I think that is intentional. Nice little details too.
