 That's true, I live in the desert, so my conditions are quite a bit different from those experienced in New York.
 I walk about 6 miles a day as part of my job, mostly on concrete and asphalt and my shoes hold up just fine.  I probably go through more soles and cleaner than most, but most of my shoes have held up just fine.  I deal with dirt and stuff, but not bad weather, so that probably has a bit to do with it.
I wasn't aware any of those materials got better with age, are you saying all my old faded thin ripped jeans were actually better than a new pair?
Disappointed that they're pre-tied, but otherwise exactly what I'm looking for, thanks.
Anyone know a good source for a slimmer (1.5-2 inch) tweed (or tweed like) bowtie?  I need one for an event coming up and can't find anything that's both slimmer and has the rougher texture I'm looking for except for a few at the tie bar that don't do anything for me.
I recently ordered a linen sportcoat and when it arrived it turns out it's fully lined (poly lining no less).  I wanted something for spring and summer days (70s and 80s), is the full lining going to make it way too hot for my needs?  Should I return it and find something at least half-lined?
Anyone have (or have seen) the Washington light blue plain linen suit?  I'm looking for something I can wear as separates casually or together for a slightly more dressed up look.  Anyone seen this and can say if the fabric/design works for it?
You don't glue the tux, you glue the flower.
Glue a magnet to one side, put the other on the backside of the lapel.
Is there anyone out there other than SuitSupply who makes a nice casual jacket in smaller sizes (32 and 34) for a decent price (under 400)?  I'm looking for a casual blue blazer for summer and none of the SS options are really doing it for me.
