You don't need a proof of purchase (strangely, they accept the fact that you have the bag as proof that you own their bag), no shipping (just drop it anywhere that sells it), and they don't exclude wear and tear or damage done by airline. In fact there are no exclusions. They won't clean your luggage for cosmetic reasons,...

I've got a set for a few shirts that are just a shade too long, but not long enough to bother having them tailored. They're useful enough, but I would never wear them without a jacket.
Glad it helped. Spend some time reading the forums, don't assume a suit is good just because it has a well known label. No matter how much you want to spend you always want the best deal for your money - whether it's $300 or $3000.

He might as well cite himself as a reference in most of his books. It's not bad stuff, it's just not particularly intelligent or groundbreaking. I guess I'm not his target audience though. Sent the link to my sister, who is a clinical dietician at a major...
Quote: Originally Posted by AntonioG Agree with what has been said above. Work with Joe, he is very good and helpful in improving what you need. +1. I've bought about a half dozen shirts from them over the last few months, in batches of two. Each time I've tweaked it a little, and Joe has been very helpful in the process. I'd recommend that you wash it about 3 times before making those adjustments however, I think the shirt you have it...
Also just checked out that site, and it screams "FAKE". For example, I'm not a huge Boss fan, but have had some of their suits over the years. On the ones they have pictured, the font on the label looks wrong and I've never seen a real Boss suit that has "Hugo Boss" imprinted on the buttons like theirs does. I'd stay far, far away ...
STP is a forum favourite - http://www.sierratradingpost.com/ - I've bought from them and been extremely happy with product and prices. I also keep an eye on http://www.ehaberdasher.com/ and http://www.virtualclotheshorse.com/. Can't say I've bought from either, but I've seen positive comments here about both. Another is http://www.shopthefinest.com/ - same thing, never bought from them, but seen good comments.
Quote: Originally Posted by fries Yeah, I tried them. They didn't have solid navy on sale unfortunately. I guess Canali's suits are good enough that they don't have to discount them. Not the solid navys anyway. It would be somewhat rare to see a solid basic navy (or charcoal for that matter) at a deep discount - everybody needs one or two in their wardrobe, and if the stores can sell them at full retail they will. The Canali's that you...

It's a decent get-you-by article on diet and nutrition, but it's so basic that it's almost worthless. I have to disagree with that - the fact that it focuses on basics is great. I love this quote - "... a great Conspiracy of Confusion has gathered around the simplest questions of nutrition -- much to the advantage of...
