Ever seen macros behave differently while debugging than when run? Anyone know a solution? Using excel '03 btw. I have the same...

I really like the fit. The fabrics range from nice to excellent - selection is huge. The construction is excellent. The store smells musty.
My guess is that (outside the HK makers) you'll be hard pressed to get custom shirts in the $150 - $165 range net of all costs. Remember no tax in PA. The trial shirt is an experiment - the others aren't much of a risk in that sense. I use Barton and Donaldson and they are in the $225 to $275 range.
I have a new favorite maker of tailored clothing - Basile. It's Zegna (mainline) quality at Canali prices IMO.

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.
