I have their wool car coat. I like the styling and I think its a very good value, but definitely lower quiality than you will get with cashmere blends. Then again - it was only $160 and the wool cashmere blends that I like are typically $500 - $600.

So what's the usual discount off MSRP on watches? I'm looking at a JLC with an MSRP in the $7K to $8K range. I'd buy at a speciality watch store.
Two new additions to the scene: 1) Thomas Pink (King of Prussia Mall) 2) Saks in Bala Cynwyd now has a Men's Department. (used to be a Women's Only store) Anyone check these out yet?

I like XMI ties (generally available at Nordstrom) in the midgrade range.

If you are going to dropping that kind of cash - you might as well go bespoke. At this point - I just cant see myself ever spending $200 for RTW.

I have 7 shirts from them and aside from 1 where the sleeves are a bit on the short side, I like them all. At this point, its unliklely that I would ever buy RTW. They do an especially good job with the collars - IMO. The stated minimum order is 4 shirts - but I think they will...
