    Picked up the last pair of Stafford Camlins at my jcp, priced at $50 minus a $10 coupon I had. Love the boot - this was the display pair and they happened to fit nicely. And yes, the Kents look like shiny plastic crap by comparison. Sad!

    Picked up the Brooks Gatsby and Brown Strand in the 2/250. Such a good deal on the strands even though they fit a bit snug and if I post pics, people will no doubt say they look too narrow because of the larger V (approx 1.25-1.5 inch gap) but hey for 125, I think I can deal with it. I'm hoping it will close more as I wear them and the leather stretches and the footbed gives in.

    Bought these suede dub monks from Zara over the weekend. Good bang for the buck.

    AE Chesters came in today. For $25 these are not bad at all; bit of a scuff on the right toe, but I can't complain. Going to give them a polish tonight.

    Some things arrived from Banana Republic today, some of it good, some of it not so much. On the positive side, I got a pair of Aiden chinos and love the fit, and a medium tailored slim-fit shirt, which also fits me quite well. The two of them set me back $50, so I'm quite pleased.

    On the less positive side, I got one of their modern v-neck sweaters, just to test it out, and it's just garbage. It looked ratty from the moment I opened the package, and felt synthetic and unpleasant. Which is no surprise, since it largely is. I also got this Charcoal Modern Slim-fit blazer, in medium, and now unavailable. It isn't actually charcoal, it has more of a brownish tint, and the cotton is thick, giving it a very seasonal look. However, it has elbow patches, which I realized only after ordering it, and rather thick shoulder padding. On top of that, size medium is actually size 40R, and it proved too large for me.

    I also got a silk-cotton-cashmere v-neck sweater, but the medium is too large for me. I do like the quality of it though, so I might simply exchange that. And on the whole, I'd say this is not too shabby. Thank god for free returns!

    Unfortunate to hear about the blazer since I have one in the mail that I got stupid cheap. Also ordered a medium and 40 will be too big. Oh well, guess it'll go back when it arrives.

    I got the Charcoal modern slim fit in medium too and it is like you said more like a 40R. Too big on me. At the price I would have kept it if I could have exchanged it for a small. Unfortunately it is out of stock online and in stores.

    Sounds like we all got screwed by GAP Inc.'s oversized measurements/clothing. I swear I can almost fit into XS in some GAP/BR lines, and I'm 5'9" 170. Not sure how a medium is a 40R - basically means they have no size options for true smalls since I imagine the small is 38R. Also annoying that this problem isn't illustrated in the size guide.

    Supposed to be slimmer than their tailored slim too, which is one reason I figured I'd be fine with a medium.

    This is me in my brand new Pointer Brand jacket. Obviously the striped shirt isn't a great choice under it, but it's what I had on when the package arrived, so...
