    3sixteen is an excellent choice.
    Others:
    James Perse*
    J Crew (I have a couple made in USA I purchased from Mr P a year ago that are surprisingly really good)
    Engineered Garments and EG Workaday*

    * can find on sale at or less than your target price.

    Reigning Champ. Extremely well-priced for probably some of the highest quality contruction I've ever encountered.

    Anyone have any thoughts on the Tom Ford Orford sneaker? Worth the price or not at all?

    I think they look good, but ... I mean, they're $900 sneakers. Even people buying them can't think they're "worth the price."

    Loro Piana has similar sneakers if you like that look (although they're also priced the same). Greats is kind of similar style wise but a lot more affordable. There's also the various iterations of German Army Trainers, which is what those Tom Ford sneakers are based off of. I like Margiela's, but tons and tons of companies make them. Adidas has released their own version and some guys on Grailed sell the original vintage GATs

    Great to see your carrying Prospective Flow. It's a new brand on my radar that I'd love to try out. What other pieces do you have coming in from them?

    Yikes, those TF Orford sneakers are pretty ugly. Reminds me of European tourists in the Bay Area, lol.

    I dig the first sweater, not the biggest fan of the second but I can see it working with your Schneider wardrobe. What is the first?

    Ordered up one of those Reigning Champ tees to give it a try. Miss the old Uniqlo prima cotton ones...

    Thinking about picking up of these up, but too feminine?

    I have the double wrap version of that bracelet. Basically same design but longer and wraps around the wrist twice.

    I used to wear it with sport coats. Still like it, but only really wear a watch now with tailored clothing and then Native American jewelry with casualwear.
