I own a similar Varvatos bag, essentially the same materials and construction but a slightly different shape. It's nice, but honestly more comparable in quality and style to bags in the $600 range. I absolutely wouldn't pay $1400 for it.
I shave using a straight razor that belonged to my grandfather. It probably dates to the 1940s. I also sometimes wear a WWII-vintage garrison cap that was part of his uniform.
Hey, thanks. I am a designer, but not an interior designer, so this was a fun challenge for me. Sweaters are up on the top shelf, and other knits are folded up in the drawers. One of the drawers also has an organizer for belts, pocket squares, accessories, and my one (1) necktie.
OK, let's try this out... I went with an affordable IKEA system. The shelves are hollow core, but they have a pretty good lacquer finish (no foil) and the metal hardware is really solid.

I all seriousness, the ones I keep coming back to are tees I bought at Old Navy for $7.50. They have a slim fit, they're thick and soft, and they keep their shape. I also have some Gap v-necks and they are teh suck.
This site makes me proud to be a small-timer.

Vahram will do whatever style you want. I have a Mr. Ned suit that (at my request) cuts so close to the body that I can't put my sunglasses in the chest pocket.

It bears repeating that my first ModernTailor shirt was off by a mile, but subsequent orders have been perfect.
