1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Thanks for the heads up! I was going to pick up a pair in the next month or so.

    This seems like a nice Canadian option:

    Especially if you factor in the duties/taxes on top of a NMWA purchase.

    Also don't overlook the secondary market like Grailed and B&S. The secondary market is brutal right now, lots of pieces lower then they have been in the past, and sitting there.


    Only drawback is no returns, no trying on. But there is a lot of stuff that is new or barely worn for 1/2 price.


    @7_rocket you're a small, correct?

    Where can you get decent non split toe shoe trees? Harry Rosen outlet only carries split toe.

    In the past I have gotten mine when ordering shoes from Allen Edmonds directly for around $20 a pair.

    Schneider Algae and Wick coats. 500 and 600 USD. Wick coat is a colour block stripe. Killer jacket.


    I think you need to be a Grailed member

    Grailed links don't work on SF. They don't like each other.

    Johnston & Murphy outlet at Vaughan Mills. 2/$30, cedar, and a metal knob on them. IMO they're the best shoe tree deal in the GTA.

    Styleforum automatically blocks Grailed listing. Just replace the asterisks with "site name".com

    Hey y'all, I'm thinking of organizing a local SF meetup again this year. Just read through the thread of the San Fran Suit Supply meetup that happened yesterday and it looked like fun and well organized. I've done around 9-10 events like this with various hobby community groups and it's always a fun time. Takes a few days to organize but it's worth it.

    Posting here to get a general feel for:
    1. if there's interest in a local meetup (don't say yes unless you'd actually plan to come)
    2. timing, I think we need 3-4 weeks notice so i'm thinking late September some time like Thursday 29th or something. Also any preference for day of the week?
    3. location, I want something central and on the subway lines, so Yorkville seems good, and I'm looking for more of an indie boutique type setting that ideally covers both SW&D and MC. The alternatives are something like King/Queen West, or Yonge/Eglinton type areas... for example the last meetup was at Nicolas. Any suggestions you guys would prefer?

    Will go scout it out, either for after event drinks or to host.

    A meet up sounds good but Sept is pretty shot for me. Downtown works.

    I would probably attend the meetup. Should take a bit of vacation travel in mid October. Other then that, should be OK.

    We would be glad to volunteer our venue to host the get together; it is always nice to meet passionate people and help foster the sense of community.

    Toronto peeps.............I'm about to list a bunch of NWT Eidos Napoli pants in sz 32 & 34 - cottons and wools with unhemmed bottoms.

    Prices are reasonable even after exchange rate :slayer:

    I was just about to suggest that maybe LF or S&M might want to host the get-together... Bravo @LeatherFoot!
