HF LTD is a lower grade of construction. Generally the fabric isn't as nice as the mainline. Its a perfectly fine suit, but will lack the feel and drape of the regular models. Paying $500 for a HF LTD on ebay should be a crime. For that much you should be able to find a NWT Madison or other mainline, from the last few seasons. Heck even Nordstroms Rack has NWT HF madisons for $550 retail.
The above loafers ended up being a little too loose in the heel and would slip off when walking. So Ron graciously allowed me to return them to him. I bought a pair of suede EG Parson's from Whnay that has the elastic gorge - so we'll see if that'll do. In the meantime, researching this I concluded that I should add a pair of Chelsea's to my modest collection, which will come after the cordovan balmoral boots Ron will have in soon.

BJJ as mentioned but I'd seek a gi-less school, or start with catch wrestling. the Gi and its associative techniques are fine, but if you're looking to do this without sight, body to body will be easier and faster to learn. Just watch out for the dreaded butt drag move... For striking, get private training. You'll be within a 18 - 24 inches of the trainer almost the entire time.

Just received the Hickey Freeman "Vanguard" DB from the Presidential Collection. Reportedly, almost entirely made by hand (button holes suggest otherwise) with handwork clearly visible in the collar, shoulder and edge finishing. The silouette is nothing like the typical HF's. Slim (to the point of being a size smaller than tagged), more darting, shorter hem line and more structured shoulder. Its off to the tailor to finish the sleeves and hem the pants. Also getting...
