In Philly, I get shirts made at Barton & Donaldson which is "high-end" for Philly (I think) and generally pay $215 - $250 depending on fabric.
Over the past three years I have spent $4K to $6K per year on clothes, shoes etc. in order to build out my wardrobe. My guess is that I'll drop back closer to $3K now that most of that build out is complete.

What do you think of Gran Sasso (Italian) and A. Paine (English) (Hope I spelled those right). I have picked up one of each recently - like them both, but can attest to their longevity.

I stopped by Wayne Edwards in Philadelphia over lunch today. For anyone that's interested there is one pair of EG black captoes (202 last) in size 8.5/9 D. Not sure what the model is and I think they were bals. They are marked down to $195. You could probably call them and have them shipped if you are interested. They are also selling Lobbs at $1100 - which I am guessing is much cheaper than most. The salesman indicated that Lobb was in the process of reducing...

Nothing complicated, there's definately enough room at the wrist (though I guess the buttons will inevitably have to be reset). I have a feeling my tailor is pulling a fast one on me... Based on other tailoring I have had done - I'm guessing a tailor would charge $25 - but that's just a guess. Yes - it seems like a lot to me too, but its a free...

I am hoping you meant "not a lot of money to some people" I would hate to think that there were a lot of people that could afford this kind of expenditure.
