Just be careful with those models. Consider what will look good on your frame. The low stance, strong shoulder look gives me a 80's power suit vibe.
I have a Paul Stuart, navy pinstripe umbrella. I've had it for 3 years now and it's one of my favorite things I own. I used to loose $10 umbrellas all the time, and trust me that you won't misplace a $200 one. It was a gift from my brother, and a perfect one at that. I love getting or giving decadent items that you'd never consider for yourself or feel guilty about buying.

Perhaps I am greatly mistaken, but it seems to me that the black label is almost as good as the purple label in construction. Perhaps the chest...
Thanks, I'll give it a try.

What is usually delivery time for those that have ordered from NYC?
Try Kurabo. They provide the denim for many of the best manufacturers. It will be a cut above anything found in department stores (Seven, True Religion, etc...). If you're looking for true, japanese, high quality denim this is a good place to start.
That first one is bad. The jeans look w/tie, or jeans and blazer is starting to feel really dated. Chino's are the wave of the future... I like the second look.

It's around that time of year again. Just saw a few and I'm super paraniod as I've acquired much more cashmere over the past year... Anyone have some more updated tips on protecting your clothes from being eaten?
