    Back in October I pulled the trigger on the most expensive clothing item I've ever bought - a leather jacket. I bought the Taylor Stitch x Golden Bear Moto jacket (point collar) in espresso. I've been waiting for months for it to get thought production. Finally, it shipped last Monday with a delivery date of last Thursday... only to be lost in the flustercluck that is USPS right now. I'm hoping it'll show up soon, but who knows... the wait continues.

I have been using a Targus canvas messenger so this was a direct upgrade for me. Heavier canvas and real leather so it is a bit of an upgrade for a real good price.
    I couldn't lay off the 70% off sale price on the velvet dinner jacket they had (the burgundy was sold out but dark green is holiday season appropriate too and they had that left in my size) and the Moon Mills herringbone sport coat. I got those two jackets and a pair of socks to hit the 3 item 70% discount for $92 with tax and shipping. INSANE! The velvet jacket...it's not going to see a lot of use but for $39 it doesn't have to. In normal times, should they ever return, I'll wear it to holiday parties and concerts...could go black tie festive with tuxedo trousers and a silk bow tie for the right event. I think the Moon Mills tweed jacket was like $45 so that was the high ticket item.

    Cross-posting from the watch thread, The Armoury x Anordain Model 1. Note to self, never 'import' a watch into the US again.

    The last of my recent shoe purchases came today:
    H.S. Trask "Aaron" sneakers in navy suede, with Guarded Goods flat waxed laces in "sapphire" I swapped in.



    Really well made using think, soft C.F. Stead suede and fully leather lined with sidewall stitched sole. Came with your standard 8mm navy laces, but swapped them out for a pair of flat waxed laces. A couple shades lighter than the shoe, but I love the neater look the narrower 6mm laces give and don't mind the slight contrast.

    Also, here's the above Frye sneakers with brown waxed laces swapped in.

    FedEx Easter bunny delivered the Sneaker version several days early!! (Please excuse the lizard legs).



    Here they are next to the slip on version from above:



    Looks kinda like a football with the cream laces. I've got some brown waxed laces from Guarded Goods on the way (my go to for all my laces).

    Just got these new Italian made Frye slip on sneakers.



    Really nice, thick full grain leather, leather lining and removable leather lined insole plus dust bag. Sidewall/channel stitched to a Margom sole. Not too shabby for only $44 shipped. Definitely a keeper and I've already got the lace up version on the way.

    Thanks guys. I was kinda on the fence, but BR is decent quality at this price point (~ $70) I think, and as I said been meaning to branch out beyond brown shoes (although I guess it's a moot point while we're all stuck indoors).

    A good looking shoe.

    I think those shoes look pretty good. Makes me wish I had picked up a pair - in brown - too.

    I'm curious how these turned out. Did you end up keeping any?
