Never seen it in person, but via WWW I'd call it "hideous."
I know that this is the "Men's Clothing" forum, so I deserve whatever ridicule I get. That said, it's about time to turn the little lady into Mrs. Dobalina. She has the dress, and it needs to be altered. We have no idea where to take it. Any recommendations?

I no longer go into that Filene's, as they never have anything worth a damn, Also, they usually have cheap fused suits made from Zegna cloth in the store, passing them off as "Ermenegildo Zegna Suits". I once discussed this with the menswear manager who "used to be a buyer" and he tried to assure me that "these are indeed Zegna suits. Just look at the internal label"-- which looked nothing like the label on the three Zegna suits I own.

What's a sensible 33 year old to do for a pair of nice jeans? Criteria: 1. Nothing that requires substantially more care than one would give to any other garment. 2. Look appropriate for a man of my age. 3. Less than, say, $300. 4. Trim, but in good taste. Nothing to reduce my sperm count. 5. Make my (relatively) fit body look good. Thanks. I am in Manhattan
Hey, Andy, what size are you?
Ever been to Federal Hill in Providence? I'm far too lowbrow to credibly argue about what's more "authentic," but I've gone 5/5 in Federal Hill, while batting about .250 in New York, and .000 in Boston. The food there is just, erm, better, in my experience. Quote: Originally Posted by gdl203 There is more "real Italian" food in NYC than anywhere else outside of Italy. It's probably the most concentrated Italian diaspora in the world. I don't know...
