 I own a MTM suit/shirt company so I'm not really in the market for these, unless I see some crazy deals. Mostly thinking shoes, sweaters, suspenders, gloves, etc. I'm definitely going to check out Al Bazar and Mr. Raro's new shop on Via Bigli. I definitely need some nice double monks too.
Hey guys   I'm heading to Como for business in early January and will be staying in Milan for one day (Saturday the 10th) and was hoping to do some bargain hunting since sales will have begun. Since I only have a day I'm gonna need to be well prepared and was wondering if you guys had any tips for me. I'm looking for good to high quality at fair prices, not really into super expensive fashion brands. Also, if you know about any places to by cut length fabrics that would...
Hi guys   I'm about to order some boots in the Hiro last. Allen Edmonds I wear 11D (borderline small, almost perfect with thin socks) so I'm thinking I should go with 10.5 here. Anyone with similar experience?
   Thanks for the input. I can get MTM suits at factory prices so the jacket would run me less than $150 (half-canvas w/ horn/MOP buttons and Bemberg lining) and I have plenty of other sport coats. I was really just curious what you guys thought about that fabric.
What do you think about this pattern for a summer sport coat? It's wool/linen/silk (60:30:10) and I would get it unlined and unstructured.  
         Got you all. I'm just having a layover in Dusseldorf and travelling with just carry-on so I won't be able to proxy for anyone, but I'll let you know what they have. I contacted SS and they told me the outlet gets new stock on Tuesdays and Thursdays, so I'm hoping for a nice selection.
I'm heading to Roermond next week (Thursday). Anyone want me to keep an eye out for some specific cuts/sizes at the SS outlet?
Has anyone been to the outlet recently? I'm thinking about flying through Cologne on my way home from Napoli and drive over to Roermond to pick some things up for cheap. Can I expect to find some good stuff there like Havana, Lazio and Washington suits/jackets in 98, or is it mostly odd sizes and items that didn't sell well?
 Awesome post. Really appreciate it.
Really appreciate you taking your time to reply Sam! To be clear, I wasn't doubting the quality of your ties at all. So to be completely clear, if the twill seems to lie at lets say 20 degrees, that has nothing to do with the silk being cut to the bias?
