The price was quite reasonable and I took a chance. It is made in the USA! Overall impression was FAVORABLE. [...] -Another detailed shot of the stitching. RLPL at top and my new belt at bottom. The stitiching on the RLPL belt is nice and even throughout, the other belt not so much. ...

I'm not sure on your budget, but with that theme, off the top of my head: 1) Inflatable travel pillow $5 2) Motion alarm for luggage $20 3) Portable binoculars for sports, wildlife, opera, $30-$50 (Olympus) 4) Noise cancelling headset $100 (Audio Technica) 5) iPod $100-$300 6) Internet home security video surveillance (view your home while you're away - Panansonic) $100-300 7) Digital camera (smaller is better, Casio or Canon)...
Almost all my purchases are at full retail - mostly MTM and bespoke. If you buy your clothes on sale, you will look like a gentleman who buys clothes on sale. (Not my quote, but from a VP of sales I used to know). --ortolan

The room was filled with ancient people, about 400...

I prefer most dimensions looser on my casual shirts than my dress shirts (except the cuffs, don't like them too low on the hand): a very snug casual shirt starts looking like a dress shirt, in my view. --ortolan
