    Yep, I live in Eugene. We're competitors of sorts, I suppose.

    Nah. Frenemies at worse. We should wreck the racks one of these days, or at least note eachother's sizes for lookin out.

    Yeah, I'd be down for that. Send me a PM some time and we can talk more. I hope you're finding good stuff - I've had a bit of a lull lately.

    Hi!

    Could anyone please help me identify the maker from this tag in the pocket of a really nice Italian made BB suit that I picked up?

    :wow: Do want! They're my size too..... Wait, whaaa.......?? I hope you're not serious.
    I love both classic tailored clothing and SW&D (workwear, selvedge denim, etc). I see your point, though. It's a hard gap to bridge for most.
    If they are recent and are vented, they should sell well on here. It just takes a bit of educating in your sales thread. Mine did pretty well.
    :D
    Cool find! Boglioli is pretty well-made stuff.

    It is interesting how this stuff migrates around the country. I found a Bullock & Jones shirt in SW Florida a few weeks ago. I am not sure that they are in business anymore, but their stuff was all the real deal! Nice find. Quality not quantity. . .

    Keep your eye out for some Gokey Bullhide or WC Russell's in 9.5 D and I will fly up and get them!

    Personally I think these look like the Adidas Samba's...which can be had for $60.

    I actually just picked myself up a pair of leather Tretorn's (white w/ navy) for $30 new at one of the local tennis stores. I'd been wanting a pair of these to wear with khakis on the w/e.

    I like some SW&D but some of it is just stupid. $500 for sneakers, for instance. I saw a pair of drop crotch sweatpants for $195 for another. I like good denim, though.

    I really like the leather Tretorns... much better than the MMM or Common Projects shown. I've been filling out boat shoe needs first though.
