One of our most important (and most fun) challenges has been finding merchandise that has an expensive look and feel while giving our clients an incredible value...case in point - this new jacket from Old Taylor. We've carried similar leathers (this one is from Spain) for $1495, so it's almost as if it's already 50% off, even at full retail. Stay tuned for more amazing new arrivals...we've got some COOL pieces for fall!
Many people ask us how suede can be a year-round material for shoes. Provided the shoe has a rubber sole (like these do), suede is easy to weather proof and requires no polishing - if you scuff your suede shoes a wire brush will have the material looking fabulous in no time. These new styles provide an AMAZING value and are a great dressy/casual shoe for a Seattle guy's wardrobe!
