    haha ya i thought that was funny. I figure i cant go wrong for the price even if it doesnt get a whole lot of wear.

    Good laugh at that. Those who enjoy the more traditional/formal blazers might not like them, but for a more casual and fun look and wear, I like the PE blazers. I am hopeful to pull the trigger on them someday.

    MASSIVE, natural-coloured leather belt, 8-10mm thick:

    (click on pic for more info. In german, though)

    Is this just too much? Can normal jeans handle this?

    that is going to be uncomfortable and awkward. bought a belt that thick once and never wore it.

    It's all about personal preference.... it can be kinda awkward like uncontrol said. The belt is thick and stiff - when worn its going to bump out quite a bit where it buckles, which is going to be a pain in the ass if you don't always tuck your shirt in.

    I'm a fan. I love the red call outs on the images directing you to the important data.

    SPURR suit for $448 (retail $1300)? Nothing interest/creative I guess, but quality/fit-wise? [​IMG] More pics:

    thanks guys for the advice. i saw some SPURR cord suits at bloomies once. don't remember being particular impressed by the quality. but almost every article i read about spurr mentions the brand's supposedly superior suiting. surprising because he was mostly known for denim... will probably pull the trigger
