Yes. I can't find "Made in America" I can find "Made in...
Ermenegildo Zegna suits are great suits but you have to become an expert of their cloths and manufacturing plants. I buy the EZ suits carried by Barney's. The Saks suits are generally the "B" line cloths from the Mainline label. NM will carry EZ suits from both A and B cloths lines. Switzerland is the plant you want your EZ to come from unless it is MTM. EZ is doing too much IMHO. But, with that said, learn your product, and you will have a great suit.
I still like K-Swiss. I prefer leather to cloth but a cloth pair of sneaks is indispensable.

Unfortunately, the suits that seem to fit me best are EZ Milano and...
90% percent of the time my shirts are laundered after each wear. Once in a while I can wear a shirt a second time and it is worn on the weekend. The twice worn shirt does not make it back to the office a second time due to wrinkles. I have two launderers. My good shirts (Borrelli, Zegna) go to the $2.60 per shirt laundry. My other shirts go to the $1.80 per shirt laundry. I pretreat collars and cuffs on all shirts.
3 miles...treadmill...yes, I know. But, I was able to get in strength work as well.

Pretty much any barber who provides a shave with a straight razor isn't going to provide the optimal shave.

One word: Repetition. Repetition is the problem. With the grain, against the grain...whatever...try to shave with the fewest strokes possible. Re-lather when attacking the same area. Lubrication and fewest strokes is the name of the game. I do believe in the four blade system. There is a video about all the research, time and money that went into developing the four blade system...it works. I got a barber shave six months ago...great experience...terrible shave!!
