Travota is awesome. They're spot on with the preppy/surfer theme. All Abercrombie will do is make you look like a student on a college campus.

Did you guys check out the shirt hanger rack right outside the shoe department? It seems many overlook that rack. The prices are ridiculous. Borrelli, Charvet, Brioni, Lorenzini, Isaia, Truzzi... many but not all are marked to $100's plus 50% off, they can be had for $50's or $60's with no tax. ...

[quote=Manton]You mean more like this? /QUOTE] That doesn't look like a silk tie. I have a few cashmere ties and wool ties that aren't able to dimple. I think that's the case in the photo above.

It seems to me the only people divided on this are the ones who debate whether or not to match their tie and pocket square.
Anyone know of a good place in Mahattan that is offering decent markdowns on better shoes (Lobb/EG etc...)?
He made me a linen shirt about two years ago. It cost $65. The linen was of OK quality, however the cut is amazing. I bet if you just sent him some fabric, he'd do it. I ordered by mail as well.
