    Lol I'm sure we both buy more than is necessary, hope to run into you one day, it'd be neat to thrift with someone from the forum.

    Has anyone heard of Bruno Rubineski Paris? Found a nice shirt.

    I recall someone here was looking for Gitman shirts. Found one of those too.

    AE sometimes recycles the names of their shoes. The Strand without the medallion used to be called the Clifton. The current Clifton model is a blucher. Search for Allen Edmonds Clifton balmoral and you should find what you are looking for.

    With the amount of skis and snowboards I've been finding lately, I wish I could channel that knowledge as well.

    Awesome coat. Size / Available?



    Also... I wanted to do a little shout-out for the SF Gift Exchange. Maybe it's already been said recently... But I would like to ask SF members that are involved with the exchange to please update your profile!

    It's important that your current sizes / measurements are accurate, so that you have a better chance of receiving things that you could actually wear. I know that my profile was pretty out-dated, as I've lost a lot of weight recently. I've gone down nearly 2 full pants sizes, and nearly 3 full jacket sizes in the past several months. Also, if your particular interests / hobbies have changed or evolved, you may want to update those. If someone is unable to get you clothing, they could at least get you a book or something related to your interests / hobbies.

    Cheers!

    They should have caught that kind of hole before it went onto the floor. Mind you, if you do take it back, they'll probably rag it out. If you think somebody would bother to have the holes rewoven, and that it's worth keeping in the world, go fish. If it's just too bad, cut your losses. Er. Bait.

    Generally I pass on anything with holes, unless they are like Kiton / Brioni / Etc. Re-weaving is not only expensive ($20-50 per hole in most cases), but re-weaving is a dying art. There aren't a ton of re-weavers left in the US and other countries. It's difficult to locate a re-weaver that's local to you, and you also can't really be sure how good their work is.

    For re-selling purposes, most buyers are not going to want to deal with holes... unless they are inside the jacket, or in a really un-noticeable area.

    I notice that the stitching on the right counter tab is off. However, is it just a product of perspective... or is the right shoe fractionally taller than the left?
