Does black works ok with the navy suit? 2) Will a Ferregamo belt draw too much attention away from the suit, or give the impression of "trying too hard"? 3) Are spread...
Are there any coats on sale at the NYC store? My toggle coat's finally given out on me, and it seems like now's about the time that winter stuff might be on sale...
