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.

The M-T-M was around $1800; I only saw 1 OTR (I didn't have a lot of time) - and that was closer to $1300. I am trying to decide between that and a Basile for my next suit.

Boyds in Philly just started carrying Samulesohn (and is having a trunk show tomorrow.) The only experience I have with Samuelsohn is a Paul Stuart jacket that I love. Is the Samuelsohn tagged clothing made to the same quality as the Paul Stuart badged clothing? What is the general price point for Samuelsohn suits and sports coats?
