I was there last week and tried on a suit jacket by Sartorio(?) for $3,900. They also have their own line sourced in Italy for $995. I have a few of their ready made shirts - both in general size (L), and one that is 16/35. They are slim but not foppish, and the fabrics seem to be worth the $135 to $165 price point. Also, they have a broad selection of wool Marcolioni socks. I bought seven pair at $24.00 per. The staff is friendly and helpful. Sid's is worth a visit...
Costco has great pricing. My TV was $300 less at Costco than at Best Buy. When you go above 46" expect to pay at least a grand more to go up to 55". I think 3D TV is going to be a passing fad, besides you can't get any dorkier than those ridiculous powered glasses.

One bit of advice, though, is to buy some nice mini-monitors to go with them. Hifi+, a respected British mag, found they work well with Amphion...so much so they bestowed a best of 2010...
We bought a Sony Bravia LED 46" from Costco back in September. Our main living area where we watch TV is bright, so LED-LCD was the best choice for us. With HD content you will get used to any picture once you focus on it alone. I have been a Sony TV fan for the past 26 years. They are the only TV brand I have ever owned. I am still pleased with what I chose. Great picture but the sound from the thin cabinet is lacking. The 32" LCD bravia in my bedroom sounds...
I am seriously debating the purchase of an iDecco or waiting for the new iNova. My last stereo I owned was in the 70's and it was my dad's Heathkit tube integrated amp and Gerard turntable. My house has built in speakers in the ceiling and I would guess they are 8" in diameter. I am guessing once I start down this road I will end up buying a powered sub too. Since college the majority of my music listening is in the car. I really want to have good quality audio in...
I have enjoyed this thread, but I don't get the hype for G&G. Last week I was in Chicago and asked my daughter (age 23) to pick a spot for the two of us. She found this place on Urban Spoon. I looked to this forum for more info and read through maybe 5-6pages in this thread. I called for a table and I was told a table for two would not be available until 10L30 PM; however, if we arrived early (before 6:30) there would be ample space at the bar for full menu...

Doxe, I don't know how you knew this was the definitive answer from jefferyd, but now I know that the problem is sleevehead to armhole relationship, and thanks to Chris Despos too for adding a little clarity. You guys make this place much better. I can't thank these authorities enough for imparting their knowledge.
My quest for a new sportcoat and/or suit has been frustrating. My wardrobe consists of several Samuelsohn suits and odd jackets in Andrew, Austin, and Alton models. The Andrew & Austin models are too wide point-to-point giving me the dreaded Foo dimple. Although the Alton is more narrow, it still is not what I am looking for. The Greenwich model is too baggy and I have not tried a Gable long enough to make a judgement. As I approach 50 and have managed to keep my...

For a short trip I never remove my overcoat while driving or riding a car, especially if it's...
Cool! That is a better deal than the 46" Sony LED TV & exec. membership they upsold me today. Can't wait to see the pics.
