        Got a coupla 30-pct off FINAL SALE J. Crew shirts at the store. A tattersall-like secret wash and a "washed red" OCBD. Gotta love those FINAL SALES and those washed shirts.

        I had a hard time though. I almost fell in love with the Liberty microdot navy blue shirt. Was torn between that at $88 and the two shirts for $60.

        I guess I'm just cheap, but I have a real hard time paying full retail anymore. I have to be truly in love with something to do that. Close on the microdot but not quite.

            Fred- When I was doing some research on C&J's, I came across a post from you in SF where you said you had the Westbournes. When you get a chance, if you can post pics and a quick review of the Hallam vs. Westbourne I'd greatly appreciate it. SF thread is here for reference:http://www.styleforum.net/t/293101/c...-vs-wesrbourne

              Those are some baller ass shoe trees for some baller ass shoes.

              How long did it take for your order to arrive? No idea how long Pediwear's shipping to the US typically takes.

                @shift and void- I got mine in the white canvas. Never had them before and saw a review on another site - gave it great marks. Sad part is the review said the could be had as low as $25 but I paid $63 at zappos - and they were on sale!

                  Sure, I'll post a pic tomorrow. They are both on the same last (348) so the fit is the same. I have the Westbournes in chestnut, the Hallams in black, and the Lowndes in brown on that last.

                  It shipped Royal Mail and took 10 days.

                    Just got my BR trench coat that I ordered a month ago. It's darker (as stated in reviews), has some shine (not liking that part) and might fit bigger than it is. I'm a 36R, but I failed to see that this is traditional fit, not tailored, so the small is bigger than I'd like. Shoulders fit well, but sleeves are too long, goes all the way down half my palms w/ a t-shirt on (wfh in pajamas, will try with a shirt later on). It also has too many buttons, one for each pocket and the belt has that fake leather buckle w/ metallic hole look, which gives it a weird look. I'll dress up tonight and try it again, but i'll probably have to return it for XS or refund.

                      Since I'm in the rebuilding phase of the wardrobe- some of my recent purchases:

                      -JCP Claiborne Athens Navy Jacket and pants - I'm taking my chances on the arm holes
                      -Giorgio Brutini tan double monks
                      -Lands End Harringbone plain front trousers
                      -Target Pea Coat (Olive Drab)
                      -Levi's 505s in tumbled Ridge
                      -Ray Ban Wayfayers (New) in tortoise
                      -Thomas Cotton belt from Maxton Men (Brown)
                      -Old Navy Linen/Coton trousers in gray (figure I'll take a chance)
                      -Old Navy Blue plaid Linen/Cotton oxford
                      -Macy's Alfani Code Red Gray suit (peaked lapels) - fit seems good and I'll live with the shoulder pads-

                        I've had orders take as short as a week and some take as long as six weeks from the time they ship them (which is usually within a week if they have them in stock). The delay is entirely up to how long they sit in US Customs.

                          How do you like them? I was thinking about grabbing some. How thick is the material?

                            @ BJmcgeever- don't know yet, ordered them online so I'll keep it updated - I figured at that price and I don't have anything like it I just need to jump on it. I did get them in a 31.5 inseam- so that was a bit risky on my part. I better like like them as a winter pant!

                              I just got a pair of Sperry boats in Sahara- not a lot of good sales going on right now for them but I settled on getting them for $55 - seems like the best deal and I wanted something that would be flexible in jeans, chino and linen. I'm thinking the these will round out my summer shoes although ... there is a pair of espadrilles that I found ... I think these would get me out of my sandals but since I have the Supergas it's hard to justify espadrilles even if they are only $40... Plus, I've never worn anything like these so comfort is a concern ... but if I do it I'm thinking the jean color... anyone have a pair of ropey soles?

                                Added a couple Tie Bar ties and squares to my ties - I'm working off of this article to build onto my tie collection (I haven't seen anything in the archives from Joe on the topic) but this is pretty good (mods- if this link isn't allowed, my bad)

                                Tie Bar ties:
                                -midnight navy silk knit
                                -grenafaux in black (If I like it enough I'll eventually upgrade to the real deal)
                                -white linen square with black border
                                -a micro in silk and linen square
                                -Slip-on Tie bar- never sported one of these but really like the look

                                I'm having a little bit of buyers remorse now that I saw a white cotton with black border and hand rolled edges at Nordstroms online for $12.5 and a solid white linen with rolled edges for $15 - to get the cost down a bit I could get a card from cardpool and use ebates and they'd be closer to Tie Bar's prices - might do it on the cotton... not sure...
