    Got most of my goodies today. The J Crew Thompson suit seems to fit quite well; I'll just need to hem the pants and shorten the sleeves a little.

    The Strands are my first pair of Allen Edmonds. Magnificent. Now I realize what I've been missing.

    Picked up a Bayswater peacoat and a few of these babies (http://www.jcrew.com/mens_category/s...5676/15676.jsp) from J Crew. Loving the sweaters, continue to be thankful that they're fully embracing the X-Small size for us thin guys.

    I have a dorco year pack for quick shaves in the shower, using their 6 blade I find it misses many spots unless I do about 3 passes, it's fairly quick but I don't think it's any closer. It is easier to go against the grain. However I think the soaps etc with wet shaving are much better for my skin, I tend to have a dry spot near my nose if I don't moisturizer and that seems to have gone away significantly.

    if you got an agressive safety razor it also would probably be closer than say a Edwin Jagger DBL which is apparently quite mild. Lots of factors to weigh in with

    They had a BF/CM special where if you spend a certain amount you would get an Apple Product, from an iPod Nano to one of the new MacBook Pros with Retina display. The AT8500 qualified for a Retina iPad, so we negotiated a bit and I told them I didn't want the iPad either so they deducted that from the total price.
    That's where I got my Omega PO from earlier this year. Super nice guys to deal with.

    Great plan, it's just if you find a lot of tugging etc, it may not nescessarily be technique and rather than get frustrated, a simple change to a sharper blade may have you going ohhhhhh! I used derbys first and wasn't really sold on the whole lack of burning feeling after my first heavy shave
    I'm not sure if I'm sold on a safety razor being a better shave. It's definitely easier to shave than my Fusion ProGlide was when my hair is longer but I think the Fusion gives a closer shave. What I usually do now is use my safety razor for 2 passes and then do a quick pass at the end with my Fusion ProGlide to catch all the short hairs in hard to reach areas that the safety razor missed.

    Picked up a pair of AE Walnut Strands 9B on Amazon through the Cyber Monday deal. Came out to $187.50 total. Excited for my third pair of AE shoes.

    Also stopped by Best Buy late Friday afternoon and picked up a Seagate 1TB external hard drive for $75 after tax, as well as a bag of Hanes tank tops for $4.99.

    Used some store credit and bought some Bonobos trousers and a couple pairs of chinos. This wil be roughly free when I return the sizes that don't fit.

    $60 or so BR taupe trousers (I like this color a lot more in person than online).

    $60 wool Saks Red Label glen plaid trousers from Off 5th

    $20 JCP OCBD in purple

    And a total last second impulse, 3 LE ties for $48: bright purple knit, navy blue wide stripe, and my favorite - silk Churchill dot

    Does anyone have an idea when the code may end? I'm thinking I'll snap up the grey one if my first comes back fitting well.
    Their Facebook person told me it ends on 12/18, so you definitely have some more time.

    I thought my wallet would make it through, but then the Mr Porter sale started early this year on Monday. Managed to only buy a Folk cardigan, but added a couple dozen things to my wish list that I'm waiting to see if they will drop further.
