I have a Schlesinger Partner Brief Bag. I'm told that Atlas is no longer being produced, or that there was extremely limited availability.
I like the bag, the leather quality is great, and the lock is actually pretty heavy duty.
1 - Daniel's is the bagel place on 3rd Avenue and 37th Street. They have great bagels but couldn't give a shit if you wear a suit.
2 - If you're going to Daniel, flagship restaurant of Daniel Boulud in New York, you should wear a suit. You should keep your jacket on. They'll ask you to replace it or leave should you remove it.
3 - You're likely to spend ~$500 for dinner between you and your companion. If you can afford to spend this much on dinner, you should be able...

often, while things are kept off the floor, they're available to anyone who either knows what they're looking for, or who asks.. Prada in NYC has a room where all of the bags are kept.. if you look like halfway normal they'll take you there upon request..

Ramon, a tailor on the LES on Orchard, or nearby, will do MTM CMT for $300.. unsure of the house style, he's done a decent amount of basic tailoring for me at dirt cheap prices over the last six or eight months..
all work done in house, one week turnaround..
This is a somewhat common practice, especially at higher end cleaners here in New York City. The practice is literally hundreds of years old.
While I understand the issues that the op has as he wished to give the shirts as a gift after laundering them (which I believe would make them no less returnable than having the laundry marks places upon them) I think the original poster and many of the responses over react to the cleaner's making the laundry marks.
Tiffany's history with watches is unusual.

Â A few years ago they had a lot of success with a stylish and inexpensive line of women's quartz watches, which they promptly discontinued to try to move further upmarket with their current offerings. Â I have no idea how the current stuff is selling,...
