Thoughts: Fit is great. Could use some waist taper but overall it's still the best I've had (compared to H&M, qlo, W+H, J.Crew, GBV). I'll probably be buying the Medium in BD cut from now on. Quality-wise, it's great. The fabric is heavy without being rough. It's smooth, as far as oxford fabric goes. Honestly, the fabric shares characteristics with Uniqlo Oxfords, but qlo doesn't fit me so in my case that's irrelevant. Construction is on point. No loose threads, or loose stitching.

9.5/10. Construction and Fabric quality is perf, but the fit is just a bit off for me.
Damn it looks sick, thanks for the review. What's the difference between BD and AD, is it significant? What size do you wear in GBV OCBD's? I tried on a size S GVB OCBD at Roden the other day and the fit is just off. The armholes and shoulder part don't seem to work for me =/

I'm 160lbs, 37ish chest, 16-17 shoulders, 31 waist. That 18" shoulder looks pretty wide for the S....Fuck I hope they're going to restock the dark slate ocbd.....or have something similar

I'm assuming its a shawl [collar] cardigan. What's your price range? Club Monaco and J.Crew have some pretty nice ones. What type of fabric? I personally think cable knit shawl cardigans are pretty nice.

A pair of new kicks for me. My first Nike in a very long time.

Nike hasn't really made anything that appeals to me in a long while (except maybe Yeezy 2, but too hard to get one at MSRP), but this looks good to me. So I asked my kicksgeek friend of mine in Portland to order for me. All for $130+$12 shipping... Gotta love tax free states.

Nike Trainer SCII Megatron

Got my new Tiger of Sweden suit back from the tailors, along with a custom made dress shirt that my mother in law got for me. Just need to pick up a nice tie and some dress shoes for my buddies wedding in a couple weeks.

BD is 1" smaller in the chest and has some pretty aggressive darting so the shirt tapers through the waist.

I had a size S GBV (this one) and it became way too small for me. I don't know if we can even compare sizes among GBV shirts, though. They have some of the worst sizing inconsistencies.

Got my pair of Stacy Adams dress shoes last weekend, really pleased with them.



Size 10, in Cognac

Does anyone know where I can buy a pair of good insoles? Which is a good, breathable type?

Thanks in advance.

If you want really breathable insoles, just buy leather ones. They'll prolly have a thin layer of foam on the bottom which is fine as long as they're perforated..
If leather insoles are too thin for you.. find ones that are just perforated and scented foam. Terrycloth and gel get gross after a while.

Two-coats.. If you're wearing the same shoes every day, then spray them every two weeks or more if it's raining a lot..

Or you can use mink oil on polishable leather (ie. not suede, nubuck, reptile skin, patent leather..) to prevent and reduce the appearances of blemishes/scuffs. It will also make your shoes water resistant but the aerosol leather protector is more convenient.. Mink oil for the purpose of water protection also doesn't last as long..
