I realize that this should probably be another forum, but Cuffthis' restaurant, Domain Hudson, was reviewed in this Sunday's Philadelphia Inquirer (As in many major cities, we get a portion of the Sunday paper on Saturday). There is also a picture of Mr. This - but the quality is poor - so you can't even be sure that he is wearling cufflinks. The review isn't on the website - but may be there tomorrow - I'll check and post if I remember. He was awarded two bells -...

Also the card is basically fee free because I pay for the annual fee in points - but then again my average monthly charges are significant.

You could try Lands End. Fabric and styling may not be anything to write home about - but construction is generally good and the shirts will last a long time.

I was in NYC last Wednesday and stopped by Saks to pick these up. They are Ashby's on the 606 in Burnt Pine. A couple comments / questions: 1) The regular price at Saks is now $1050; the first discount was to $786.90 (25%); it was then marked down to $550.83 (additional 30%). Paid $13 to have them shipped to me and avoid the tax and then got 10% off for opening a Saks account - so its going to be $507.45 out the door. A pretty good deal I think (as much as paying...
