    How tall are you GN? Also, if you had to give them a grade how well do those Express V-necks fit and would you recommend going up/down a size to your normal shirt sizing to ensure that they are slim enough?

    I'm 5'6" but my torso is proportionately smaller. They fit pretty true to size--I'm in an awkward middle ground between smalls and mediums (BR fitted smalls and Alt A mediums fit perfectly) but they're pretty stretchy, so there's a lot of give.

    I'm looking to buy a nice pair of sneakers that are a bit more dressier than the Converse short tops and Vans black loafer things I have. I want to be able to wear these new sneakers with jeans as well as dressier trousers. Any recommendations? I see a lot of people sporting various colour canvas sneakers what do you guys think?

    You could try looking at the European sneaker brands like Superga and Tretorn, or look for more understated sneakers of the like.

    Any recs for a sub 200 (maybe a bit more) chukka boot? I own a pair of clarks db, and like the general sillouhette, but I'm looking for something a bit more "substantial" if that makes sense.

    x2 on this.

    I'm thinking of the Timberland Chelsea Boots that Nordstrom has for $99 right now (regularly $150), but I don't know if I'm liking the cap toe.

    My skin color is tan/brown. What colors does SF think will best suit my skin color?

    Check out Church's Sahara (DB) or Ryder (chukka) and watch for a pair on eBay or B&S

    After a lot of research I've decided to buy some Clarks DB.

    Love the beeswax but somehow they aren't available here in Germany.

    My second choice is the sands, but I'm not sure, if they are that versatile to wear them often.
    Read a lot of threads about the DB's, but couldn't find an answer which satisfied me.

    Would appreciate some infos or at least links to existing threads.

    Thanks

    Why not purchase the beeswax online? I'm sure you could get a pair off ebay, or off zappos.com. I also saw someone in the buy/sell forum selling quite a few of them.
