+1Both jackets are awful. They are at least 1-1.5" too short and 2-3" too narrow through the chest.
Almost everything on the 2ND floor, including the Incotex, was 50% off. 200-250 is my best guess
Bergdorf and Barneys are both at 75% off. Barneys has three models of C&J at dirt cheap prices (~$250). A dark brown suede Tetbury, a brown casual wingtip boot, a pebble grain Chelsea, and a double monk. Sizing was super limited. Most of the good stuff at BG was at 50% off. Highlights included a JL two eyelet boot for around 1k with shoe trees in an 8UK. Lots of staple Incotex on the 2nd floor if you are size >32 or larger. BTW, I never noticed it before, but a...
You're going to have to try on all of those suggestions in person. As much as the Margiela aesthetic appeals to me, I haven't found a jacket that compliments my body type.

Trunk Show at James Leonard I bought a pair Mykita from them earlier this year. The Brooklyn shop has always offered great service. Not cheap, but all their products are mid-range to high-end (e.g. iC Berlin, Mykita, Dita, Cutler & Gross, etc with Zeiss lenses).
I'm leaving in a little over a month. So far, my rough itinerary includes 3 days in Madrid --> Cordoba for 2 days --> Sevilla x3days with 1 day devoted to an Alhambra tour --> return to Madrid for return flight. Does anyone have suggestions for lodging, places to eat, can't miss sights, etc? I was in Madrid around 5ish years ago. I covered a few of main sights but missed seeing Guernica. I'm an amateur photographer and plan on shooting a lot of Moorish architecture...
