To elaborate:The original poster's complaints are petty. They do not merit the vendors' entry into the mosh pit.Exactly.
To the original poster: 1. Leffot owes you nothing. You cancelled the sale. Indeed, you owe an apology to Leffot because you attempted an end-run around it. 2. Edward Green also owes you nothing. 3.

LS Men's Clothes on W. 45th St. Good luck.

Considering retail price in USA is 3,000 and they sell it for 1/3 of retail. Btw, they manufacture Oxxford in USA? The Oxxford 1220 is a better suit. I would say that it is comparable or superior to Brioni's RTW make. The Oxxford 1220 has less handwork than Oxxford's "Highest Quality" line, Oxxford's...
