FINAL price cuts on all jackets. If they don't sell at these prices, I'm going to donate them to a local charity.
FYI, for you brave bargain hunters: Carlo Franco is having a sale! Any three ties for $80 each; four or more for $70 each, and bowties are only $25. Best of luck! http://carlofranco.com/

Hence, I think they would look better if they were a bit slimmer through the legs, and if they tapered to a narrower opening at the ankle.
I am pretty clueless about jeans, so I thought I'd ask the experts. I'm 52, and don't wear jeans out to dinner or clubs, etc. I wear them to my sons' soccer games, and other places where I might get my pants dirty. But I still want them to look good. A year or so ago, I finally switched from grandpa jeans to 501s. It was at my wife's urging, and I'm glad I listened to her. I like the <$50 price. I also like the way they fit, except for the baggy legs. Should I...

I used to have my alligator straps made at Flemings. I have a small wrist, so I liked that you could have a strap made to your specifications (for an additional fee). They did great work, but the cost just kept going up and up ($200+). For the last couple of years, I've bought my alligator and crocodile straps from James Rust, who has an eBay store and a Blujay store. Mr. Rust has been a pleasure to deal with and the straps are first rate. All the ones I've...
I've got a black shell pair from BB, and two #8s from Alden. I've also got a tan calfskin pair from Alden. As far as I can tell, they're all identical.
Just ordered three of these luxury slim fit herringbone FC shirts: http://www.brooksbrothers.com/IWCatP...uct_Id=1432954. They fit me perfectly, and for $50, they're a steal. Couldn't quite pull the trigger on the cashmere cable dog sweater: http://www.brooksbrothers.com/IWCatS...Section_Id=313 Of course, if it were made by Coochinelly, I'd have to buy it!

Very nice pair of Polo English butterfly loafers with a BIN of $87.99 (with the option of making a lower offer). They're size 10D, and look barely worn. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...E:B:SS:US:1123
