man, i just had the most annoying experience with Unionmade. i ordered a harley of scotland shetland sweater, a pair of converse and two pair of pantherella socks. the socks were listed as "one size" but each pair is a very obviously different size. like... one is literally twice the size of the other. for $13 on sale, i wont bother returning them. converse were fine. but they didn't include the sweater. looking at the invoice, it's on there but the number of items is listed as "0" for the sweater, and they didn't charge me for it. but ****, you would thing they would at least call or e-mail saying "we don't have this in stock" or something. wtf? horrible customer service.

That would be irritating. I have been to Unionmade and bought a chambray shirt there, but I have never ordered anything from them online.

So my new BB shirts were delivered yesterday. I like the tab collars. I also got a blue french cuff shirt--it's darker blue than I expected. It's more of a French blue than the lighter blues I usually wear. I like it, but I will have to figure out what to wear it with.

Man, I wish I wouldn't have clicked back into this thread...haven't checked in a while.

Those brown cordovan Strands are calling my name.

Just listed my AE Randolphs (Chili Grain, 10D if anyone is interested) for sale on Ebay this morning.

Huge price difference though.

Cordovan is pricey stuff. I haven't been able to get myself to make the leap.

i just received a credit for $159 for anything that luxottica (owners of rayban) makes, which is basically anything from the sunglasshut website. my raybans got messed up and they couldnt replace them under warranty because the style is discontinued. i currently own three pairs of shades, all by rayban: wayfarers, clubmasters, and aviators.

any recommendations as to what to spend the credit on? i'd like to get something that strays away from the three styles i already own, but everything else seems ugly to me. i hate those gaudy shield-type sunglasses, but that really seems like the only style i don't own. ideas?

I have a pair of RB Cockpit sunglasses that I like. They're sort of like aviators, except without that droop on the lens that makes it look like the Scream mask.

Been wearing them for four years and the lens came out yesterday. Off to RB to get fixed.

It's more easy to kill with a sword than with a gun.

A sword is more frightening than toy-looking gun like glock.

robbing with a sword is a good thing

Why not just stop by your local optical shop? They should be able to pop the lens in while you wait.

Yeah ... I can see that

Btw
Do you even have any asian friends in real life? I don't think I have seen any asian friend comment on your fb stuff other than e46 people
Which would make me stand out even more on your fb

You should just let them know that you are a man of wealth and taste who has similarly situated friends all over the country/globe. Then bust out the Grey Poupon and make yourself a sammich.

I like those. Similar to Randolph Engineering squared off aviators. Very Daniel Craig-esque.

Random thought of the day. Airlines could make a killing if they offered adult only flights. The amount of shreeking kids on this flight is comical.
