Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.
There is a support thread if you have any issues.

Quite fond of this tie I just pulled the trigger on, we'll see if it looks as nice in person
RL Polo (C&J):
$11.50/pair. A little clean up work and they should be good to go.
Wow, those are great shoes, Alan (not to mention a real steal). Don't let anyone dissuade you from the flat laces. With some conditioner and a new heel they could be spectacular. Are they a slight pebble grain?
Yes, they seem to have a pebble grain to them. I'll report back when they get here. The brown ones do like they'll need a new heel, but I think the black pair should be fine.
Polka dots FTW... about $30 total for these.
^ Nice ties, excellent prices, drizz.
From my outings yesterday:
l to r, Eddie Bauer (wool), Eddie Bauer ($5/ea), Old Navy, Old Navy ($5/ea), Donelli, Donelli (both wool, unknown Italian brand from TJMaxx, $6/ea)
Alan, I've got the same brown herringbone socks from Eddie Bauer. Nice choice.
More ties: $50 or so total... tradness!
Just put a 3 Button Navy Pinstripe RL Black Label suit on hold. Been trying to weasel a major discount on it but had to bite asap due to an impending "dressy" event (read: Xmas Party). anyway im getting the private sale and Nov16 discount so I managed some damage limitation. Will post (sh*tty) cell phone picks in a bit
yes the sleeves are real short (The Jacket is a 38s instead of 38r, I chose the 38s for the shorter jacket length), and I will have them let it out a bit. Otherwise the suit fits perfectly and only needs minor alterations (pant waist, leg opening, sleeves, maybe suit waist, oh and pockets)
Is that from the dressing room?
Pringle of Scotland wool/cotton trouser. Polo RL Made in Italy wool trouser. Vintage Harris Tweed from England. One of the cuff buttons is worn, but they're leather, so I plan on replacing them anyways. Love the pattern. NWT Brooks OCBD (made in USA): This is great...Talbott "Democrat" tie, complete with donkeys, eagles, and American flags.
Waiting on these to arrive from ebayland:
Brooks Brothers snapper cufflinks, $20 (this is the Brooks pic):
Cotton pocket square, $10:
This pair of brown Barksdale
This lovely Japanese cotton hanky
^ Oooh, like that handkerchief.
