    Any idea if there are any local or online CAD retailers that would stock MERZ B. SCHWANEN henleys?

    Right now the ones I like are at NMWA - but the conversion is killer...

    If anyone has had good dealings with EU based shops, and who ship postal. Please share.
    The EU gets some really great brands and the EURO is 1.50.

    Anyone here have a recommendation/good dealings for where to buy SNS Herning?

    Thanks. I messed up the 2nd link (duplicated the first). Was meant to be http://reggaemania.com/the-new-years-eve-black-tie-affair-delta-t-o-airport-west/

    The Old Mill one is in the running right now, as is Brassaii; though I shudder at their definition of "sophisticated formal attire".

    Careful with Brassai--their service can be a bit dickish. I have a handful of free drink coupons from their last fuck-up but my aversion to them hasn't yet been overcome by the prospect of free drinks.

    When you get those free drinks, do you have to sign forgiveness papers? I mean you can have drinks and still be angry at them :)

    No anger here--I lack the energy and commitment to carry a grudge! And it takes very poor service for me to become annoyed.

    In any case, I'd rather pay for a drink at a bar I enjoy rather than put up with a shitty vibe just to save a few dollars.

    OK, this was meant as a joke, no judgement of your character. English is not even my second language, so maybe I should have used original "aversion" instead of "anger".
    Don't know what they've done, but they offered a chance to make it up, didn't they? It's a service business, people for people, omissions happen...

    Having drinks or not having drinks is not exactly my idea of saving money...

    Sitting in Pearson waiting for my flight home to Portland. Sadly I had almost zero time to explore the GTA as my work had me doing 12-14 hours every day. Went to a few local restaurants in Mississauga - the highlights of which were Adobo Café close to Dixie Rd and a Korean place called Miga. I did stop by Spier and Mackay earlier this afternoon and got measured for shirts. Jason over there was great to work with.

    Do hope to come back on my own time and see the town and try out those recommendations from several pages back.

    No worries, it was taken as a joke. And good on you for posting here. I can barely scrape together 25 words in what would technically be my third language.

    I finally won yesterday after 4 or 5 losses in a row. All postal shipments. My long established ratio has been literally reversed.

    Lost on a pair of shell Aldens this week shipped USPS - around 80 duties.

    Have another pair of shell Alden boots coming this week via UPS...God help me but I can't even imagine how much I'll get hit :(
