Two ties for sale in used but excellent condition. Buyers have two options for shipping: $9 to Canada/CONUS gets a tie that is placed in a flat cardboard envelope. It may arrive a little wrinkled from being folded, but you should be able to steam it out no problem $15 gets a tie that is rolled up and placed within a box. Check out my other sale ads. I'll be happy to combine shipping 1) First up is the iconic Burberry in a modern width of 3.25 x 58.5". SOLD 2) A very...

I have for sale 3 great Ralph Lauren starter suits for your new office job. All are in like new condition, 100% wool, and all are the same size. All are 2 button and dual vents, and have flat front pants with no cuff. All are only a couple of seasons old and worn sparingly in a rotation of 10+ suits. They are all tagged a 40S, but I'd say they fit between a S and a R, see actual measurements. S: 18.5" PP: 21.5" BoC: 29.25" Sleeves 24.25" + 1.5" Pants waist: 34 +...
I'm from a stylistically challenged city in Ontario too. If you are thinking of dropping around $2-3k for a wardrobe upgrade, my advice is to go to NYC. What you'll save compared to paying paying retail (or even Canadian sale prices), will pay for the flight and hotel. You'll get a free vacation out of it. If you are a newbie, you'll likely have a limited idea of proper fit and combinations. Getting to NYC and visiting stores like Suitsupply and Century21 will make...
Sizeup, and alter waist on the next suit if necessary. Also Hugo suits are crap. their shoulders are too stiff if you're built. Slanted traps make all sorts of shoulder or sleeve divots. try something with softer shoulders as you bulk up. The top seem will sit on your shoulder a lot better and not make a mini peak. It's not just size, but fit of that size in relation to the cut and shoulder
So many options with this jacket. Don't be afraid of the FU factor since you aren't going to work in it. I have a similar cream blazer and a off white one too. I usually pair it with some indigo or navy Incotex, and a pink, blue or a pastel green shirts in gingham, stripes or solids. You can go bold with the shirt as this is a pretty conservative blazer. A white shirt under this blazer is a bit ho-hum. And makes you look like you have no sense of adventure when it...
FWIW, last time I was in Chicago, I found better deals for suits and SCs on the Mile than at the outlets. NM, Saks, Nord and Barney's all have fantastic sales during holiday weekends. I picked up a couple of Drake cashmere ties for $27,and a Corneliani blazer for $280.
Started in 1997 with a BA - $28k, 40 hrs per week. Supporting a family. Now close to $200k, but I live in the great socialist republik of Canada, where they tax me like there's no tomorrow. Closer to 50 hrs per week As someone else mentioned, you gotta pay your dues. I remember living for the first couple of years stealing Toilet paper from public washrooms, one roll at a time, and buying the half rotten $1 bag o' assorted fruit from the supermarket. No cable, no...
I think you're better off making it a home based on-line business. Tax write offs for your residence and utilities may make this a better option.
Welcome to American sizing. It makes us fat slobs feel better about ourselves when we fit into a smaller size. Pants are even worse. For $200 get yourself to a NMLC, Off 5th, or Rack and buy a better coat. Last time I was there I picked up a Canali summer blazer for $125
