    Seems like a good deal.
    I was reading the reviews on that shoe rack. Apparently you only get 1 level for that 11.90, even though the picture shows 2, which is ok I guess but at full retail that would be a joke.

            Picked this Orient Union up last week and threw a Hirsch Duke strap on it last night. It's hard to show the textured dial in pics but it looks much sharper in person.

            I have and I am wearing the same watch. Might have to spring for a light brown strap after seeing it.

                I'll try to get a wrist shot for you soon so you can get a wider angle view on it.

                  Picked up a pair of BR monogram nailhead gray wool pants and a pair of Luciano Barbera wool pants in what I'd describe darker than a mid-gray but lighter than charcoal.

                  Question: Should I pick up a pair of Rugby (the defunct RL brand) flannel trousers? They're light gray and would need a bit of tailoring. This sounds good so far, but they're 30% poly. They feel great but at $45 that seems a little steep for something with so much polyester in it.

                  Others I passed on: VBC light gray wool pants. Unfortunately they had a pair of forward pleats. Also pale olive or weird sage-greenish tinged (really hard to describe the color) flannel Corneliani for RL. Just have no idea what this color could go with.

                    The Barbera wool sounds nice. I would pass on trousers with poly.

                      Also not a huge fan of Poly.

                        I bit the bullet and purchased a winter parka from STP. Waxed cotton, removable insulating liner, goose down (albeit of uncertain quality), and a $145 price tag. How did I do?

                        Unfortunately, despite this purchase I keep feeling tempted by the Karmaloop Schott sale. I asked this on reddit and got no response so far, but can anyone comment on the thickness and warmth of their 24oz peacoats? What about 32oz?

                          i finally got through to theshoemart and got some alden seconds... and they are pretty intense for a first alden purchase...

                          apparently several went straight for the indy 403's and passed over this guy, model #4461H in color 8 shell

                          i might have a tough choice to make, since i have a pair of dark chocolate daltons that look very similar. we will see how these aldens look, but i'm very excited

                            fey, how was the discount on the Alden seconds? I would love to make my first Alden purchase... I'm assuming there is a thread on this topic somewhere, but is it as simple as calling customer service at the shoemart and asking to purchase Alden seconds?

                              Pretty much. I was on hold for half an hour though. Those boots were $399, and Indy boots would be $299. The shell is such a good deal!

                                Those look like some really nice boots especially for shell.
