Blue tuxes just scream "bad lounge act" to me.
So what's the consensus on Levi's Capital E in terms of quality? I found some at the Levi's discount outlet for about $50 and I'm probably going to buy them, but I was wondering how they stack up to the other Levi's lines. This outlet generally sells a lot of factory seconds, and that's what these appear to be, but there's not anything noticeably wrong with them. My thought is that I wouldn't pay full retail but at that price they're a steal.

All that being said, the weather has been pretty inconsistent this season, with heat one day and rain the next. I'd say medium weight clothes and don't forget to bring something a little heavier on the off chance we catch freak weather.
Why are there so many orphaned suit jackets at Goodwill? Do people seriously donate just the coat? Or does Goodwill split them up? And if they do, why do they do that? Today I found a really nice Hart Schaffner Marx for Dior suit jacket for ten dollars that was more or less NWOT. I'd have bought it in a second if it had the trousers, but alas, they were nowhere to be found. Meanwhile, the ugly as shit mens warehouse suit right next to it was complete and was priced...
The only thing I can really tell you is that you should probably have someone who speaks better English copy edit the site. Some of the item descriptions are a little engrish-y. The site design is pretty nice though, overall.
