I think Boyd's is much like Paul Stuart - good stuff with sometimes overbearing salespeople. The difference between PS and Boyd;s is that I don't think Boyd's is any more expensive that other B&M places. (Though I recognize that it is hard to compare PS since they only sell their own goods.)

For high end Italian stuff at predictable high prices, try the shop in the lower level of the Comcast Center. I believe that the store is called L'Uomo. The owner is a very nice guy. His sale prices can be quite good. I posted a question on this last weekend - I pass L'Uomo every day and I have yet to see anyone in...
Just asking - but does it even make sense to worry about durability in a "fashion-forward" suit. Almost by definition - the suit will be out of fashion before it ever wears out.
Not sure if 995 was the tagged price at Boyds - but if not on sale - they'll give you $200 off just for asking. Officially you need to sign up for their preferred customer program - but just promise you will and they'll give you the savings. I just recently bought a (solid navy) Basile suit there at $1295 - $200 = $1095 and I love it. You should be able to find something good there for $1000 if that's your limit.

I walk by this store multiple times every day. There is never anyone in there. (I actually mean that I have never ever seen anyone in there.) The merchandise looks gorgeous - looks like tailored clothing from D'Avenza, shirts from Marmol (tagged at $495 and $495), Romano Martegni shoes. Anyone know what the deal is?
I have ties from many (but by no means all) the brands on your list. I hate to say it - but I think Carlo Franco ties are / were the finest in the world. Regardless of what happened - one must admit that the ties were sick good.

Are you sure you can get MTM at $1200. When I briefly looked into Samuelsohn - I thought the RTW were around $1200 - but that the MTM program had a significant up charge.
Quote: Originally Posted by suitmeup Does anyone know if you can find any of these brands in the Philadelphia area? I went to outlets this weekend but the shoe selection was pure junk. I liked the Allen Edmonds but I don't know where to find them and I'm nervous about ordering on the internet without getting a chance to try them on. Thanks. You can get Alden (and AE and Loake) at Sherman Borthers. I think Wayne Edwards keeps a limited stock of...
