My Ride: 2011 BMW 135i
Had the day off of work.....

APC jeans
Bayfield boots
light blue OCBD with a light gray sweater over that.


In other news, I had to send my Daltons back to AE because the tongue on the left boot was all messed up. It kept shifting over to the outside portion of the boot so much so that you could see my sock through the laces. I wasn't sure if it was a defect, or what, but apparently the problem was due to my instep. They're bonding the tongue and sending them back. Anyone else have a problem like this with boots?

In other OTHER news, there's a day in December that the wife gets 40% off of all items in the store (Nordstrom), so I'm currently figuring out what to purchase. I'm thinking a pair of AE's....possibly park ave's or 5th aves in dark brown (I can order anything out of the AE catalog), a Tumi Suitcase, and maybe a pair of Blundstone boots.....I'm undecided on that.

I have that issue with basically all boots.

Ghurka bags come to mind

The misses would shoot me if I did that, lol.

One of those will be a purchase next year, in any event.

Did your prior issue with the 1K's never get resolved?

not familiar with the designer. most MTM suits are actually fused, which sucks. i'd bet this is MTM and not ACTUAL bespoke. that being said, fit is everything, so if he can make a suit that fits you well, that's great. for you, however, i'd say you're at risk for not really knowing what you want. many people go into a MTM/Bespoke fitting not knowing what they want, just go with the house style/tailors natural inclinations and end up very disappointed. even if i went with you to every fitting, all i'd do is recommend what i think looks good, which is just my opinion. unless you really know what you're looking for, i wouldn't jump. you can find deals like this all the time.

YES. That's my thought. Astonishingly comfortable and well made. I've read the Kudu is great for foul weather.

They agreed to pay for half of the repair. I just have a big issue with a company selling such an expensive product, going bad as a result of an obvious manufacturing error (not the normal wrinkling or rip found on seconds), and then not agreeing to stand by their product at all until I blew up their Facebook page.

I'll probably get them repaired, sell them, and never purchase from Wolverine again. They've proven, without a doubt, they are not on the level they're trying for.

What was the issue with your 1k miles? I'm still planning on getting a pair but haven't pulled the trigger because of the price.

Pattern is good. Looks like a skinny tie though.

I bought a pair of 744 LTD seconds. They were seconds bc they had a minor defect (wrinkle) on the shaft of one boot. After 10-15 wears, the toe cap literally started coming off - it wasn't stitched on properly. I understand that I purchased seconds, but they were still $609 and Wolverine's answer was basically "tough." If Wolverine wants to be a legitimate player in this space, this ain't gonna fly. The same things that might work on $100 boots don't work when you're selling boots that, when discounted, are still higher than an average car payment.

Alden whiskey leisure hand sewn at the Willis Tower Sky Deck yesterday.

I'm not afraid of heights but this made me pause for a second.

Yeah that sucks. I actually mentioned this to the store I bought them from and they had never heard of an issue like this but we're surprised Wolverine wouldn't stand behind them. Nevertheless they said that they (the store) would stand behind them no matter what.

Mine are also $350 and not $600, so that makes me a little more comfortable too.

How hard is it to alter a 40L to a 40R?

BB has some killer deals, but I'm a 40R with 33 waist, 33 in seam. How much work would it take to shorten up a 40L to me?
