Thanks If you go to Stonehouse in either Eaton Centre or Yorkdale, you can get their house brand shirts on sale for generally $50-90.

If there were ever a time that I wished I still lived in Toronto, that time is now. Pal Zileri has got to be my favourite RTW line out there, and those prices are ridiculous! Paul Fazzari is a great guy too.

I wear knit ties with cutaway collars all the time. I not only think it looks great, but I get plenty of complements as well. As a rule, knit ties are generally less formal, etc etc. But rules like that are made to be broken.

I am in the midst of a change right now. In the past I had tended to wear very bold ties and shirts with subtle suits. I basically wore a slightly toned-down version of the Etro look. Upon joining this site and finding The Sartorialist, I became exposed to a more elegant style of dress and it gradually grew on me to the point that I was not happy with how I was dressing at the time. I've since taken it upon myself to overhaul my wardrobe to a more elegant, but still...

Soft refers to the fit of the jacket. Armani does not make this model anymore. It was transitioned into a fit called "Giorgio". It's an older, looser fit than what's available from the Collezioni line these days.
I've done work as a style consultant before. I am currently working with one client on and off. The clients I have worked with in the past have been very happy with the results, but I tend to be selective of who I will work with (the client needs to have the right attitude, and desire the right ends, otherwise our collaboration will not be fruitful). My regular job is in a high-end menswear store, so I've also seen a lot of style consultants in action. From what I've...

On an other note, do you find ur clients more incline to respect such "unknown" brand if they saw the price-tag at comparable price point of these popular brands? I find the opposite, in fact. If the garment carries a comparable price tag but the client has not heard of the brand before, they generally have a...
