Anyone notice the article (subscriber only) in today's WSJ by some dude named Antongiavanni? http://online.wsj.com/article/SB119820646382444181.html

They just sent me a suit that looked nothing like the picture, and came with prehemmed pants and prechalked arms. It's the downside to their return policy
This is going back to STP unless one of the kindly folks here wants it. The suit is a single-breasted, 2-button, grey (with blue and grey stripes) Isaia suit. The model is Scott A. The pants have two pleats (per side). This suit being sold to me must be the result of STP's generous return policy-- the pants have been hemmed but not cuffed. I am 6'1" and the length is fine on me. I can measure for you if I have to. The sleeve buttons have not been attached, but...
The Oxxford flagship has about 20 suits @50% off, and 20 more @30% off. Some of the fabrics are even completely banker-acceptable, including a beautiful charcoal with light grey pinstripes in a 46 (US). Maybe they always have those sale racks, but it's the first time I've ever noticed.
I've read the whole thread, but I haven't read enough to come to a decision on my issue, which follows: I have no fewer than twenty dress shirts that need to come in a good deal through the body. My neck is still 16.5, but my chest has gone from 47" to 45", while my waist has gone from 42" to 35". (Following Art De Vany's Evolutionary Fitness, in case you care) I look like a clown in damn near every shirt I own. Reselling and replacing my current wardrobe is not a...
I am wearing a pair of shoes from Kendericks right now. They came on-site to my business school, and delivered what they promised. Recommended.
The pants are going back, thanks. And "yoke" is the word that I am (clearly) misusing to refer to the distance between the top of the waist and the bottom of the crotch.

On the bright side, I really like the pants; they fit me perfectly in the waist, seat, and...
I am so totally lame for having to ask this: I picked up 2 pairs of Incotex trousers from STP @36% off, paying $135 each, shipped. They arrived today, and after trying them on, I can't decide whether to keep them. They are the "Paul" model, made in Portugal. They just look a little old for me-- a thirtysomething NY finance guy who is too poor to buy these things at full retail in a store. The quality is all it's cracked up to be, as far as I can tell, but I can't...
