Dropped my car off for some body work this morning, and had set up and confirmed a pick-up from Enterprise to pick me up at 8AM and get a rental at their office. I figured I should be able to get the car and be at work by 9, talk a half hour lunch and still get in a full days work. The shuttle finally came to pick me up from the body shop at 9:45, 1.75 hours late, after saying they had somebody on the way twice, and not answering the phone twice. Then at their office, they...
I do not have a background in economics and have only my own experience to draw on, but there does seem to be a correlation between an increase in both the frequency and percentage off of sales over the past 4 or 5 years and an increase in the pre-sale price.

How so?

Jesus, the Peal shoes just went up last year from $528 to $598. Hard to swallow when they are exactly the same shoes increasing in price by nearly 25% in ~12 months. And they weren't exactly priced too low to begin with.
If you're willing to spend $500, then go to an actual store like BB and try on their different fits and sizes. The one you have shown is far too big. If that is a 42R Madison then you probably could have luck with a 40R Fitzgerald, but just go to a store and see for yourself.
You need to look at things in the full context. A 3" lapel on a 36S jacket might call for a different tie than the same lapel on a 48R jacket. Use your eye.
