Why not go to Nieman Marcus to look into Oxxford. Gus and I obviously have different impressions of the Wing Tip operation. It's certainly worth checking out both WingTip and NM.
I was there. My remarks are partially based on that experience. They were pushing Club Memberships, not clothing. My guess is that they only picked up the Oxxford line recently. I was in their store maybe a year ago, months after the Meet- Up. I do not recall any Oxxford.
I would stay away from them. The last time I checked Wingtip is a membership club, barber, furniture dealer, cigar vendor and retailer of moderately-priced mens clothing Oxxford is the premier mens tailored clothing manufacturer in the US. I would only buy Oxxford or other high-end menswear, especially made to measure, from a store that has deep expeience in this market and the requisite skill to do the measurements. Wing Tip is too inexperienced and unfocused to...
I'll be there for sure. Thanks Gus for organizing.
And in a separate county- San Mateo.That's the main reason that the Palo Alto high schools score so high inState rankings. Viirtually no disadvantaged kids. Menlo Atherton High School,while it has many affluent students receives many kids from E Palo Alto and Redwood City,and consequently tests lower. Also, probably a greater percentage of affluent studentsgo to private schools than in Palo Alto.These test score are reflected in the price of real--estate

I own a classic (notch lapel) Ivy Cut Tuxedo from Paul Stuart that is over 40 years old. I still looks good. That is an advantage not buying " fashion" as in slim-fit but sticking to classical styles.
I miss Winter. I really do.
There are actually two Flood Mansions in San Francisco.I prefer the newer one:https://seesdifferent.wordpress.com/2009/09/14/san-franciscos-two-flood-mansions/
Not really, but I am awaiting delivery of my first pair of MTO shoes from Europe.The reality is that I really have no need for tailored clothing, although I keepbuying it. I usually wear jeans running shoes and polo shirts. Last weekend was an exception. I wore Isaia, Sartoria Partenopea, along with a twenty year old T& A shirt- they're indestructible.Re: local real estate. The only way to benefit from the appreciation is to down sizeor leave the immediate area. If we...
Where I live , Menlo Park , it's as bad( or good). There was virtually no real estate recession in this area 2009- 2012. My house, purchased in 2012, has appreciatedover 50 % in just 2 years, according to online estimate sites.
