    Every answer Mr. Dapper pants will give will be one bashing anything not advertised or sold on this site. This is such a predictable game.

      Dear Greg,
      Obviously, you have not watched the video. We have never sold a single brand mentioned in the video on the website.
      A few of the questions pertained to brands that advertised with us, but the vast majority did not. I recommended many brands that have never been advertised here: Meermin, Carmina, Castangia just to name three.
      It’s one thing to disagree with my opinion, but please get your facts straight before you make false accusations.

    Sven, thank you so much for this. Many of us, especially the US are not familiar with all these different brands. Without this video and discussion from GG, I wouldn’t know about them and miss out many wonderful brands that exist. knowledge is power … No more shopping Macy’s 🙂

    HI Sven,

    Just wanted to let you know that your site is just fantastic. The amount I’ve learned just in the past few months reading your posts and watching your videos is just amazing. And I also made the leap and purchased a number of your Fort Belvedere socks, which I’m loving. Cheers, Dan

    Hello, sorry for not submitting this question to the video itself, I hope you are able to make another video for more questions. I was wondering if you’ve heard anything about Klein, Epstein, Parker suits/clothing? If you have, do you have an opinion on them?
