Funk Master P. Smooth I hope that's a good one; how does one tell?
lance == virtualclotheshorse.com he's discostu on this forum Extremely reasonable person with great prices
Usually once or twice a year I go to Louis and pay full price for various things. I always feel like I'm being educated there and don't regret it. On the flip side -- and this is difficult to explain -- I now hate the idea of buying at Bloomingdales or the like (haven't really experienced Barneys here in Boston yet) I also pay full price (out of necessity) for various things that I feel will never show up on sale -- these are usually the tried and true basic classic...
Stripes, IMO, can work as an odd jacket, but it depends. Usually, it's something about the stripe itself that says this would be great for an odd jacket but usually too much for a suit. Also you can do other tricks to make it look clearly like an odd jacket. Patch pockets maybe, or perhaps doing an uncommon color for lining. If in doubt, I'd avoid it though (excepting of course those of unlimited funds)

Somewhat off topic: One of my favorite wine stories was relayed from a friend who went on one of the wine tours in Cal. The guide is suggesting various wine/food pairings, e.g., cab with braised short ribs etc. Someone asks quite seriously what goes with white zinfindel. The guide pauses (perhaps to consider if the request was serious) and then in the most haughty voice says "chicken mcnuggests" Regarding votives: I don't like it when we order a nice bottle of...
