    I hear you; I have the basic professional suits that I get from my tailor, so wanted to see if I could do SS for funkier/casual suits.

    Intern season is NYC is nice, but I wouldn't be wearing my linen suit at the beach either

      btw, anyone know if you can return these outlet suits to a brick and mortar suitsupply store? the gigantic tombstone box has to go asap, so it'd be nice if i can return in person instead of mailing it in this ridiculous box

        You bet - I returned two coats to the B&M store (one of which I really loved but was just too long!). I think you basically have 3 options: 1-return in store, 2-slap the return label on the box and drop at UPS store, and 3-schedule a pick up from your home. So far I have used #1 and #2 - gotta love free return shipping

          These are my 2 new Aldens that I got during the Haberdash sale. I love these unlined Dovers since it was just what I was lacking - a brown blucher. They actually messed up with the unlined suede chukka. They sent me the snuff suede instead of the tan/sand suede. I'm trying to decide if I should swap it out or just keep the snuff suede since BJMcgeever keeps saying the sand suede wasn't very versatile for him.

            The suede boots seem to have a greenish hue. Maybe its just the picture. As long as it is not greenish in person, I would keep it. It looks like a frequently wearable option.

            Will you be applying any conditioner/ polish to the leather shoes? What is your new shoe care routine?

              I think the wood hangers ship with sportcoats. Seems like they do the plastic hangers with suits because they want the velvety cross-bar bit to hold the trousers. The plastic hangers are still pretty decent, IMO. The ones I've gotten have had a nice wide shoulder, anyway.

                There's no greenish tint to them in person.

                With suede shoes, I always apply waterproofer before initially wearing them out of the house. With leather shoes I usually apply Saphir Renovateur. Since these are more on the casual side, I think that's about all they'll ever need.

                          I purchased the Sienna in charcoal birdseye at their SoHo store while I was visiting my sister this past spring and had it shipped to my house. The suit bag and the red wood hangar it came with are far superior to the accessories that accompanied my outlet Napoli blue linen. Not sure if the outlet Sienna suits come with the upgraded storage materials or not.

                            Vicious the PTBs look awesome, they'll get a lot of wear. PootieTang (well there's the first time I've ever written the word "pootie") I'm going to echo hornsup, there's MORE!? I'm curious to see what's left.

                            I got a number of things recently, I'll put up a picture when everything gets in/returns from the tailor.

                              I just received the JCrew Aromatic Red Cedar Shoe Trees in size small. Decent quality. It will serve its purpose. Was not very "aromatic," until I put it next to my nose. Total: 23.97 with tax. Free shipping. (I know... I missed out on the Jos.A.Banks shoe tree sale)

                              In the box:

                                Spent the past 4 years in San Diego, now that I'm in the bay I needed some warm weather clothes. Got wolverine 1k's and some jcf stuff coming too. I couldn't resist those haberdash deals

                                LCDR, have you checked out Nordstrom rack? They have woodlores for cheap, and Allen Edmonds sells trees 2/$40
