Honestly if you are speaking in terms of selection at actual Ralph Lauren/Polo factory stores, Woodbury Commons is where it is at. ...

Personally I actually prefer Ralph Lauren Blue label knit ties....probably because they are the perfect width for me. I have J. Crew made in Italy knit ties but can confirm that the outlet versions are indeed made in China and poorer quality. I also have a Purple label and the quality is higher than on the blue labels but it's actually thicker than I prefer. But everybody has covered all the vendors that I know sell knit ties....

Personally I like Off 5th and visit it pretty regularly as their is a store about 15 minutes from my house. They have been having great sales as of recently as well, I believe their most recent sale was 40% off of any pair of shoes. Anyway, I don't really purchase a lot from them besides shoes because ours doesn't usually have anything that great. I have probably bought about 5 pairs of shoes from there though...
Only probelm with Crombie's shirts is that their sizing selections suck!! Last time I ordered from them they did not offer multiple sleeve lengths with each neck sizing. The shirts I ordered had a collar that was too large and sleeves that were too short. Fortunently I purchased the shirts on sale for 29pounds each but they rarely have sales and their regular pricing is absurd for the quality to be the same as a Charles Tyrwhitt or TM Lewin shirt.
Personally I think that their shirt provide an excellent value when you can find them on sale. I would recommend you going with their trim fit because otherwise the shirts will fit like a tent. But as far a quality the shirting fabric is decent and they feature single needle tailoring, split back yoke, etc... I would gauge their shirts as being higher quality than Jos A Bank but below Brooks Brothers. I usually catch their shirts on sale and pay between $19.99 and...
I am in Barcelona, Spain right now and only stumble upon this store yesterday as we went to virtually every Zara store I could find. Here in Barcelona, Zara a hands down the most popular retail store. I can't think of any store this popular in the United States. Anyway, I was very impressed with the presentation in the store as I felt it has a very upscale feel. Although they had some really nice looking pieces I didn't pull the trigger on anything by their cologne. I...
