Any idea of price on something like that?
Shouldn't be much different than anything else. I had the sleeves lengthened on mine. I don't recall what it cost, but it was not much.
Question: How do you tell if buttons are real horn or MOP? I can often tell when they are not, but are there plastics that mimic the real thing so well that it is difficult. Is there any test like rubbing them on your teeth or fingernails or whatever?

It's better now. $449 minus 15% with fall9x code on line brings it to $394.57 with the tax. Just got a grey stripe Fitz for myself.

If I remember correctly, this is what they told you to do in the old catalog. They may even have had a chart for you to trace it on.
I bought a pair of these last fall...

I just picked up this tie and a houndstooth as well on deep discount at the latest sale. For those of you who like narrow ties, these are quite nice.

What is new at Bean?
