    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.

    I'm looking for a shoe similar to this. The searches I've performed haven't really turned anything up, so I'd be much obliged if someone could help me out. [​IMG]

    new standard is mostly sold out, though if you size up one, petite standard has more options. but after sizing up, fit will be slightly looser in the waste and more slim in the leg

    I’m usually a 29/30. My NS is a 28. They were tight at first, but after a few years they have stretched and feel a bit large, so I might go for 28 PS anyway.

    Edit: Damn. Don’t have those either. I think a 29 would be too big. Thanks anyway! I’ll just pay the extra.

    I was at dior today and they had a light, plain and simple black bomber jacket in nylon or something. Really liked it. Can anybody recommend an alternative that won't cost me SGD3100?

    Guys, this is Michael. Michael wears a shiny leather jacket. Can someone recommend a reasonably slim-fitting, similar jacket (ribbed collar, big zipper, etc.) in a number of price ranges?

    Because that would be awesome.

    (Surprisingly enough) I found J Crew L slim fits me almost perfectly. Just a tiny bit short in the sleeves, but if I roll them up it looks great for casual shirts where I'm not tucking in. Also trying out MTM with Modern Tailor.

    I was going to say you could also get a decently-priced shirt with good fabric (Land's End, JCrew, etc.) and pay around $15-25 to have it tailored to fit like something absurdly-priced, but with no apparent increase in durability or fabric quality (I'm looking at you, Band of Outsiders!). Add MOP buttons if you wish. You'll also see Patrik Ervell shirts crop-up here on Buying & Selling for decent prices; and those are, IMO, slim-fitting and worth the extra money, wherever you buy them. Good luck.

    I don't have any specific look or brand to compare with, but I'm looking for a casual military jacket for the spring. Doesn't necessarily have to be military, just that general casual look. Something clean but not boring. Price range can vary but preferably under $300. Thanks!

    You can find navy blazers with silver buttons or really any style of button.

    If you have a navy, I'd get a tan/stone color

    Does anyone have any recommendations for brands that fit like Epaulet? The mediums fit me perfectly but i am on a college budget so I can't really splurge on their website. I have been looking for used shirts and they seem to be hard to come by. I have a 40 inch chest and about a 32 inch waist so any shirts that are slim fitting with darts and box pleats and what not are ideal.
