Cross posted in Manhattan sales: The Turnbull & Asser sale is worth checking out....shirts range from $25(!) to $200 (sea island), with most around $100. Hundreds of ties for $25-75, including a ton of grenadines (ex navy) and knit. A handful of suits and sportcoats/blazers. Best: a rack of smoking jackets for $500, in colors such as bottle green, claret, orange, red & black. Didn't pull the trigger on one, but did leave with three shirts, a tie & a pocket square for $120.

I think it's a testament to how well-rounded prep schoolers are that we have two separate, civil discussions on this thread going on at the same time - math PhDs and high school football.

New England's not exactly a hotbed of athletic talent. Not sure how one...

He's somewhat right, an analyst or associate wearing french cuffs would raise a few eyebrows, depending on the workplace. Again, like with a contrast collar shirt - is that the way you want to call attention to yourself? Being a junior banker is like being in a 6-year long job...

We have interviews at Choate, Deerfield, Exeter, St. Georges. You guys want pics or just the bare facts? Lemme know. Thanks. P.S. I love Toby Keith, especially that 'Stays In Mexico' song. Thanks Dashaansafin (aureh, Baba, Concerned Parent, and mjphillips). I'd love to...
