Looks like the latest iteration of the Costco Graham & Gunn roadshow will be in Washington, Virginia, and California (both SoCal & NoCal) in May. Here's a link: http://www.costco.com/Service/FeaturePage.aspx?ProductNo=11649430&cm_re=1-_-Right_Nav-_-MensSuits I may check it out. Don't need/want one of these suits, but I could definitely use some new everyday work slacks. The regular Italian-made Kirkland wool slacks have been a solid value at $50, but almost all of...
OK, Gents . . . how about these Chelsea boots? Assuming that they are actually "Made in England" as the description says, then they'd seem to be a very good value at $139 (+ another $9.99 for delivery). Agree or disagree? Grenson Black Dress Chelsea Boot on Urban Daddy

I consider myself a "recovering engineer." Before moving into planning & management, I worked for four years in engineering: two years for the government, and two at a small private engineering consulting firm. At both places there was a mix of office work and field work, so I can relate to and concur with most of the comments above. As a general rule, engineers are NOT good dressers. The fact that you're on this forum indicates that you want to be different from...

One summer day one of the speechwriters came to work in a seersucker suit and white shoes and I thought the poor bastard was going to get fired.

I'm 5'-9", and my cuffs are 1-1/2" with some of my suit pants at 1-3/4" at the recent urging of my tailor
Some one please remind me: who have been the tailors for Reagan, Bush Sr., Clinton, and W? I remember much being written regarding Reagan's tailor -- I'm guessing he paid more for his suits than the "retail Nordstrom" price for Obama's.
Looks like the junior senator from Illinois be wearing a custom-made Hart Schaffner Marx suit when he makes his speech accepting the nomination. http://www.forbes.com/2008/08/26/oba...ife_newsletter
