Polo Ralph Lauren 100% Silk Cable Knit Toggle Sweater, Size Small.     Fit is a little closer to a medium.  Worn once, hand washed once.  Ribbing at collar, cuffs, and hem.  3 hefty wooden toggles on front placket.  Open weave so fine for wear in the Spring or Summer nights.   Price includes shipping to Continental US.
Thanks Bengal, I should have figured.  The Llama looks incredible.
  JB, any ID on the maker?  I know Nutcracker's partial to Japanese artisans so my guess would be Fukaya due to the last.  Just curious.
I should add that it's by no means my most expensive suit.  It's just performed admirably.
I guess I'll go ahead and be the first one to say my favorite suit happens to be the one that fits me best.  But that isn't the only reason I like it.     I love that the fabric bounces back and holds a crease very well.  I love the weight of the fabric.  I love that it's a ready to wear jacket and has been going strong for over 5 years with weekly wear (sometimes up to 3 or 4 times a week).  I love the shoulder on it - soft but not unstructured, it also falls right...
This is actually about as restrained as Santo Barilla gets.  I like to call him "Pitti the clown".  Remember this picture?     Must have caught him in between fittings.  In all serious though, I do enjoy the fact he clearly doesn't give a shit.
  Her leaving and talking about Megan and the Doc as she did it was the true power play, lets be serious here.
For posterity...     Also, even more damning...   https://twitter.com/JHilla320/status/334668264502358017
I thought the scene in the bedroom with Megan and Don talking about his kids was very powerful.  Reminded me a bit of the emotion from what is, quite possibly, the greatest scene in Mad Men history, The Carousel.   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=suRDUFpsHus   I agree that the focus on non business related issues is a little disappointing but there is so much going on in the world at this point it can't be ignored.  Kinda wish they would just get rid of Betty and...
  Well, I guess that's part of the reason I like it so much.  There's almost a completely uninterrupted front with, in my opinion, quite a large amount of shape in the jackets due to the rounded quarters and what I'm assuming are his ironing skills.  Plus, after seeing his garments in person, I was really impressed with the fineness of the stitching and it's simplicity/rustic-ness.
