    I know you said NATO, but maybe a vintage looking leather strap would be cool.

    Question: Anyone have any experience with how narrow AA is in Alden shoes? Contemplating an ethrift but don't want to end up buying foot binders.

    Sooner the better on the advice please.

    I've had superb transactions with lots of you dudes lately, and have been very remiss about sending shouts. That's a major my bad. So let me shout to some recent awesome dudes: Woofa, Dadjeans, Koala-T, ReubenR (as always) and Cottondockers.

    An e-thrift for me.
    Shreve Crump & Low tie by Vineyard Vines.
    I don't think Vineyard Vines are really known this side of the Atlantic, so picked this up for a song.
    Does Shreve Crump & Low add any rarity value?

    And, I found a very nice Odermark, Loro Piana cashmere and wool overcoat.
    Priced far less than all the more dept.store brand poly/wool blend coats on the same rail, and not a bad fit on me.

    Excuse the trousers at half mast, but I had to trip the camera and then sprint down the path.

    ^^ I saw that Vineyard Vines tie on eBay. I've bought loads of ties from that seller. I don't know how he makes any money, such awful photos and free postage means I've picked up lots of beautiful ties for under £2 shipped. I think you could probably make a decent living just reselling his ties! Nice fit pic btw, I've been looking for a similar overcoat.

    I think his awful photos must be a deliberate ploy to hide any faults. Nobody takes photos that bad.
    Yes you can get good ties from him, at good prices and with free shipping, but it can be a gamble.

    Got a Dunhill tie from him once that had a stain on the front which he'd never mentioned.
    Gave him negative feedback and he was on my case right away in a very rude way, demanding I change the feedback.
    When I said the tie had a big stain his response was basically "Well what do you expect for that price"?

    First: Really F'ing skinny. I had a pair of Alden for BB tassels in an 11 or 11.5 AA that I thrifted a while back. After stretching they kinda fit, but they hit the road when I figured out what size(s) I actually wore.
