      That's wise thinking... I think I'll do the same. I need a short hiatus anyway.

        I have a suede double ring belt from Ralph Lauren that I got for less than $25. The Suitsupply one is pretty nice and I also bet there will be a sale in a month.

        On another note, I just placed my first Sam Hober order!! I have been thinking this over for a while, and finally ordered a midnight grenadine and a plain burgundy repp tie. David from CS was great in providing suggestions based on my wants. Can't wait to see them up front and try to on.

Had to just call in myself and got a "oh, sir, your order was actually sold out, even after we put a hold on your credit card. That hold should be gone soon, and you will not be receiving that bag."

          Here was me: "Should I not have been notified of this immediately after it was known, instead of calling myself or just sitting on my bum for no package?"

          "Ummm, yes sir. Sorry about that."

          Lessons learned.

          Edit: I would also like to add that the bag is still being sold on their website, not saying that it is sold out, and not stopping me from paying with a credit card. This seems to be extremely unprofessional.
          Sorry to hear about that, that sucks. It seems like a lot of retailers had BF related issues (unsurprisingly). Not an excuse for not notifying you that they sold out though.

            Terrible picture that I rushed since I was home for less than six hours last night, but my burgundy cordovan Daltons came in. Delightful finishing and the leather is gorgeous. Color is so deep on these. Got dainite soles out on so they'll be my go to rainy day boots and maybe light snow day boots as well.

                Thanks! My first dive in, a birthday gift to myself during their annual rediscover america sale or whatever they call it. I figured since I was doing a dress boot, the combo of dainite and cordovan (being more resistant, generally - although I'll still treat the leather) would be perfect for cold/rainy/snowy weather in NYC.

                I also realized that I'm overall near the end of building out my dress shoe collection, and that if anything I'll be adding around the edges or upgrading if my currents fall apart. I have a black captoe (Grensons, my only non-AEs), brown captoe (Park Ave), black brogues (McAllisters), bourbon brogues (McAllisters, my go-to shoes), walnut semibrogues (Strand), and now my recently purchased brown suede double monks (mora or mora 2.0, not 100% given they're made for Club Monaco) and shell cord Daltons. Might as well go for nicer stuff now when purchasing, if it makes sense.

                  Taking a new job soon

                  This job will require me to be in court a lot more frequently (no more daily uniform of business casual) so I just went insane and bought $1100 of suits, sport coats, trousers, dress shirts, and ties from S&M plus a pair of First Ave dress boots from AE.

                  Blue texture suit $350 (CAD)
                  Brown herringbone suit $200 (final sale)
                  Blue watch check sport coat $308
                  Brown gun check sport coat $308
                  Grey windowpane trousers $50 (final sale)

                    Nice, and congrats on the soon-to-be-new jerb! Especially since it comes with more court time and a reason to upgrade/expand your suits/business attire!

                        After looking some more I'm actually switching the blue watch sport coat to the blue gun check, which I think will be a little more conservative....

                        And since threads are useless without pics here are some from my recent order

                              Bought it from the Barneys sale, using it as a rainy day boot for work.

                                ^ I have been eyeing the blue guncheck for a while. If only my house was sold...
