Quote: Tiffany's history with watches is unusual.  At various times in their history, up until the present, they've slapped their name on Pateks, VC's, and others, and retailed them out of their bigger stores.  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.  I have no idea how the current stuff is selling,...
two ways to do it without overdoing it- casually i'd wear the velvet jacket over jeans.. formally i'd wear a bit more tailored of a velvet jacket with a pair of tuxedo pants.. at most of the younger benefits this past winter, there were one or two people wearing this outfit.. nice look- a bit more casual than a full on tux, but a much more distinctive look..
Quote: If you do a search on the forum, you might hit on some testimonials/advice on hemming jeans; it's come up a lot lately. People have mentioned that you can keep the original hem. I have not done this - I dunno who's qualified, willing, or how much it costs. My tailor - who's nothing special - has done a fine job on mine, but I've never asked him to maintain a hem. there's a few dry cleaning shop tailors in soho and tribeca (probably everyone...

Quote: Mack, thanks for the input.  How are Ramon and Wilfred?  Will they do out of the ordinary alterations?  Can you give me some price point examples?  It would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Dan I've used Wilfred for a year or two, since right after they moved onto 23rd and i've been pretty happy with them.. they're a full service tailor shop and will do everything from the basic hems on up to custom fully canvassed suits at an entry point...
Joseph's Cleaners, on the Upper East Side of Manhattan charged a bit more than anyone else, but their policy was that if you received a shirt with a broken button, your cleaning was free for the remainder of the month.. never had a problem with them.. Green Cleaners, on 22nd off of Park, and to whom I've recently switched, recently replaced all the brittle buttons on one of my shirts, even putting two replacement buttons on the bottom of the shirt, without charge or...
i've been alternating between a black Kangol Trilby, which, slightly small on my head has gotten me more compliments than any piece of clothing i own and the Prada wool/cashmere watch cap, which has a nylon lining to provide for waterproofness..
in terms of rimless glasses, it's very hard to top Lindberg's rimless.. the Kawasaki's are nice as well, and the style is somewhat similar to the Lindberg's.. understand that both are titanium frames, and thus, they cannot be soldered.. instead, if a piece should break you're looking at needing to purchase a new piece.. all rimless frames are, by definition, modular, however you're probably looking at about $100 for a new bridge piece.. they do have a very nice warranty...
they've reopened the downtown brooks brothers.. directly across from the wtc site..
Quote: I know everyone hear bashes the quality of Prada Sport stuff, but this one pair of America's Cup trainers started falling apart (again, no fault of my own -- I also like to think I take excellent care of my shoes) in just under a year.  I currently own 2 other pairs of PS trainers and 1 pair of loafers, none of which have had similar issues.  I received them as a gift, so I wouldn't know where to take them or even who to contact as there are no Prada...
