Quote: JF, what sort of cut are you looking for? (I realize I might have just opened the door for an "American Trad Haircuts" thread.) A Trad haircut is just what I want, as most people think I am still mired in 1962, prior to the English invasion from Liverpool.
I tried Joe Mole when in New York (Lex near 73rd) at Chistmas and got a great cut. Over the years, I found, and then eventually buried, three good barbers in Atlanta. Now I cannot find a good one. Anybody have any suggestions?

They smoke more over there and I am sure this helps to remove odors. However, spot cleaning plus regular brushing and airing (bright sunlight kills moth eggs) is a good alternative to dry-cleaning to prevent moth damage. Drycleaning...
Quote: I wore the Church "Kingsley" bookbinder tassel loafers through the late '80s and '90s. No problem with creasing or cracking-much better in this regard than the Crockett and Jones loafers from Polo I had during this period. No abnormal sole or heel issues. I notice that 'jerrysfriend' still has versions of this shoe. Yes, in retrospect (especially after reading the posts on this board), the leather looked more like plastic and the shape was not classic...
Take a look: http://www.bluefly.com/pages....bizrate Not a bad looking shoe and a great price-5 sizes left. I especially like the fact that it comes with khaki canvas instead of leather as the contrasting part and a wooden heel
