Wondering if anybody has had good experience with a drycleaner on the UWS? Mainly looking for one that does a nice job with dress shirts. Thanks.

I've seen a few recent photos of Polo's version (I'm assuming it was...
I'm in the two overcoat camp. All I need is a camelhair polo coat and a navy chesterfield. Currently have zero so need to get to work on those purchases.

I was expecting an entire shirt, not just the collar. Am I wrong, or is this just another...
Yes, please let me know as well. Looking for some suede unlined chukkas.

You don't need no stinkin' tailor nor any $40 Chevy Chase cleaning job. Your really only worry is shrinkage and only God...
