I would advise buying wine rather than the fridge. If they're wine people they can end up being picky about the fridge (e.g., is the motor right, etc. etc.) but they'll feel obligated to use it rgeardless of their druthers. A real nice bottle of wine will be memorable, and that memory will be associated with your thoughtfulness. When I receive wine as a gift I put the wine in my cellar along with the card (bottle rests on it). If you know what they like to drink,...
definitely not full length. Slim fitting, no vents. all cotton and definitely a spring weight Some people will like the style, some won't but for those who do the price is essentially a 1/3 of Barneys so that's something of a big deal
PSA: Yoox is now selling for about a 1/3 of the retail price http://www.yoox.com/item/YOOX/FAY/ts...s/searchResult Here is the vogue article with the exact coat http://www.mensvogue.com/clothing/ar...7/09/fay_coats
That's a difficult price range. I like Belvest; though it will likely be above that range, it will be less than the Kiton's, Borrelli's and Isaias. It's a different cut, but still very soft construction etc. STP carries both Isaia and Belvest in that range but the stylings can be very hit or miss.

Oh well, lesson learned. You may want to consider one of Anna's ties. ...
Re darts, all my AM shirts have them and I think as stated above they are to keep the lower back trim without affecting the fit of the upper back or lats/sides I can not visualize how you can get the same fit by just tacking it in from the sides.

Thanks. http://www.yoox.com/item/YOOX/LUCIAN...s/searchResult I have the coat like that in wool. The coat should not normally have the top button done (as in the pic). It has something like a lapel roll and the back of the collar...
I'll have to try one out some time. I think it might be kinda cool cashmere sweaters may be worn over t-shirts; and at least I know how to wash and handle those.
i considered a bunch of winter shirting material samples recently from AnnaM; many were cashmere blends. As samples they all seemed fantastic and were very tempting I eventually wussed out because I couldn't quite get my brain around how to care for them: e.g., ironing them (which was recommended) seemed wrong (like ironing a sweater), not ironing seemed wrong, dry cleaning after each wear seemed worse. Who knows I might get one eventually -- just to mix things up...
I personally think you can learn some aspects of taste, and that some people pick this up faster than others. i also believe some people are gifted in this area -- the real vanguards
