I'd just go with raybans myself. They're much cheaper and still the original.
I'm trying to decide on whether to give the BB MTO Shirt experience a shot, or to go with my first Moderntailor shirt. Here's my situation: I need a couple staple shirts in solid blue, white, and perhaps a pink as my current selection is running ragged. I'd typically go with BB rtw, but they have a really crappy selection of rtw shirts with a Londoner collar and button cuffs right now.

A friend told me that the better brands are moving to Holt and away from quasi-lower end department stores such as The...
