Hi guys, I was in upstate NY over the weekend and picked up a Luciano Barbera suit at a thrift show for an incredibly cheap price. Outside of sleeve length, the jacket fits me to a T. However, it is ventless. I don't have high hopes, but is it possible to add a vent to a suit? Is there anyone in NYC that could do this? I mostly bought this suit because I'd like to have it copied with nicer fabric (umm, and with vents), but I figured I'd try asking here.

I paid a similar amount for mine. However, it looks terrible, cut just isn't right for me.
Hi folks, I've been invited to appear on a business news show next week and I'm looking for some advice on shoes. I'll be wearing a charcoal suit, blue shirt, tie of undetermined color tie, and hopefully, a new pair of brown shoes. I hate wearing black shoes, and my first TV appearance means I'm allowed to buy myself new brown shoes. Any suggestions? I'm willing to spend up to $250, and tend to stick with split-toe numbers.
Does anyone out there have any clothing made of bamboo fabric? I noticed some Isaia stuff on STP made of bamboo and was just curious about the differences from more standard fabrics.
Oh forget all this crap. I want some f*cking coupons.

I just bought a new suit this morning and I'd like to get it tailored in time for a very important dinner I have Tuesday. Any suggestions on a tailor in downtown NYC that can do good work with a fast turnaround? I don't think anything drastic needs to be done - sleeves shortened, waist taken out a bit, cuffs on pants, that sort of thing.
I haven't worn a watch for a couple of years, basically because for some reason I'm always banging into things, and the last watch I wore (a ~$75 number) was scratched up pretty quickly. Now, I'm actively trying to cultivate a more professional appearance at work and I think a good watch is necessary. Is there anything I can do (besides just being more careful) to protect a watch I'm wearing? Maybe certain materials or brands to look at? And if anyone has...
