The price may be a tad high by ebay terms for this seller but I've found his service impeccable and the quality of the goods are first rate. You won't be second guessing whether something is really new, etc.
Having said that, because his prices are on the high side by ebay terms I agree for his goods it's best to wait until you see a "gotta have it."
I wouldn't necessarily say it equates directly with intelligence.
I expect smarter people to dress better (though not all smart people dress well).
I do not expect knuckleheads to dress well (though some might).
Has anyone had experience with having lapels re-sized or altered?
Joe Calautti of Rizzos in Cambridge (for those who know him) told me that in the past they used to resize/trim down some wide lapels.
I'm wondering if anyone has any experience with this, and would appreciate any observations or advice.
