THAT is a SCORE!

LNWT Balloon cloth sport coat! Killer. I'm envious.

There should be enough in the sides to let out 2CM (+/-) to get rid of that snugness, that and sleeves shortened, and you're gold.
Yeah, I looked inside and I think my tailor can let it out a bit. Really just grabbed it to test fit but didn’t think it would be a keeper! I’m sure my son will happily take it if it doesn’t work for me.

What was your wife's reaction when you walked in the store to buy a BIRKIN bag and walked out with a wallet?
She was shocked at the fact that I blatantly asked for a Birkin bag right off the bat. She was ready to play the game so she planned on settling with a Kelly wallet but I thought I could just buy it. FML. She plans on leveling up by buying more shit from them. FML


My guess is that you have to spend at least $10K at Hermes even to get consideration for a Birkin bag. And then one of the cheaper ones.
Between a bag that she got and this wallet she got, I think she surpassed the $10k mark. I'll expect a Level 2 card in the mail.

Now you get put on The List. Everyone who has spent more at Hermes is in front of you. If they all pass on the Birkin bag, you have a chance to buy it.

F them.

Where can I get a nice leather belt? I have 2 from Zegna but they feel cheap due to their thickness (or lack of).

What level do you get if you buy the $25 bar of soap?

Leather. Would like to stay below $500
W. Kleinberg, Ralph Lauren Purple Label come to mind.

Are you looking for a sterling silver buckle?

Some shoemakers make belts - I believe ZonkeyBoot, Gaziano, Edward Green, John Lobb also make belts. If its not exotic, you should get by under 500.
