    Does anyone have an SA that will honour the 40% discount for Cordovan/EG? If so, please PM me.

    You need to develop a relationship with a SA for them to even think about doing that.

    I stopped being loyal to SA's after my 2nd one quit. My current SA is pretty good, but he is not pulling strings for me.

    Here's a question for the group. I just had a burgundy striped dress shirt made up, as it goes great with some stripes on a suit (navy blue with a rust check) I just had made. Question is, what pairs best with such a shirt in terms of ties. It really is outside my usual comfort zone, but it goes so well with the suit it was a natural choice.

    I'm thinking navy blue, charcoal grey, maybe dark green?

    I know it's a personal, not a "Toronto" issue, but this is the thread I hit up the most.

    Green is the natural compliment, but the exact shade would be dependent on the shade of navy in the suit. A Navy texture would probably work as well. No on the charcoal.

    I bought a couple things during the 30% sale but didn't get a 40% coupon. I feel left out... unless it came today...

    PSA: Motoretta on College St. is having a 2 for 1 sale right now. They stock Filson, Redwing, Gloverall and more. Selection is not great, but if you can find what you're looking for it's worth checking out. 30% off single items too.

    Leatherfoot finally has their Crockett & Jones collection up on their site here.

    $870 CDN for the Coniston boot though...
