If you have the scratch, it's a great store to load up on accessories. The last few times I've been, the selection doesn't seem to be as broad or unique as some of his other shops, but there are still some terrific items. Great socks, as Will mentioned. EDIT: I clicked on Foxx's link to the Flusser site, which I haven't seen in a long while. I see they've introduced a more slimmed-down version of their silhouette, which looks pretty good. One of my main objections to...
Zut alors! Comparing Montreal to Des Moines? How can one countenance such a suggestion? Montreal is a delightful city. Hell, I even like Toronto.
Wasn't the first commission a suit? How'd that turn out?
This is all true, and really impacts what I now buy on Ebay. Unless you get a really good price on something that makes it worthwhile to have it shipped, what some sellers charge on top of actual shipping costs (packing or handling fees) can really add to one's actual cost. The silly money people, as usual, make the bargains harder to find. Some people don't do their homework before bidding and buying. I have bought the occasional Ebay-listed guitar, but what some...

A college friend of mine works in a large Atlanta law firm, and marc's advice is spot-on re: her professional wardrobe. She sticks to plain navy, black, and taupe pants-suits, combined with cream, white, or dark blue blouses or dress shirts.
