Unfortunately, we have canceled the Sartorial Meet-up scheduled for October 15th. I look forward to meeting up with you otherwise.

We've moved the start time of our event up to 5:00 p.m., but otherwise everything is the same: $76/person; Hub 51 at 51 West Hubbard Street in Chicago (between Clark and Dearborn); and Featured Vendors - Alfred Sargent, Harvie & Hudson and Hemingway Tailors; and
Moonshine on West Division Street and McGee's on West Webster both serve tasty wings, but here's a pretty good analysis: http://www.greasefreak.com/wingsstars.html
Barcelona is perfect for a shorter visit.
I just returned from my honeymoon and we stayed at the Hotel Splendide Etoile at 1 Avenue Carnot, one block from the Arc de Triomphe - it might be a bit over your price cap but you'll be very pleased. The staff is excellent (notably concierge Farooq, who is very knowledgeable) and the breakfasts are tasty - also, across the street from the hotel are both a Metro stop and an Air France airport shuttle bus stop
Le Pergolese in Paris. Very solid - we enjoyed the degustation menu, especially the turbot. http://www.lepergolese.com/uk/home.html
What about a black blazer? I've heard differing views on this (navy only and black is "OK"). I have a black Chester Barrie DB blazer that I like very much, and in truth it's not that much different than my midnight blue BB blazer under most lighting conditions.
Supposedly dated and a relic of the 1980s and 1990s, but SF icon Price of Wales/Duke of Windsor sported jackets with this button stance (although these might have been capable of both 6x1 and 6x1 buttonings, as are RL's DBs).
I don't know why they changed Buscemi's character's name from "Enoch Johnson" (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Enoch_Johnson) to "Enoch Thompson". The actual historical guy was only in his late 30s when the events supposedly depicted in the series took place but maybe having an older actor portray him emphasizes his gravitas.
