You were 'high' and reading details about the lining. Be grateful that you did not leave the store with a Z-Zegna suit purchased at full retail.

Almost all my shoes were purchased on sale; however, that is not always possible - I have paid retail because they were not on sale or wanted the shoes before the sale period. The same applies to clothes, etc, sometimes you have to pay full retail. If you can wait for sale period and they would be available after the sale period just incase they are not on sale, then wait. If not or you want the shoes now; and they are affordable, buy them.

Personally, I would say look at different watches; although, from the options, the white face option.
£27 ($42) every 6-8 weeks Although the last two occasions I have used the top stylist who charges £39 ($60) - the first time my stylist was away sick so they charged me my normal rate and I rebooked with him. The annoying part is when I am booking my next appointment, the reception staff try to sell me Loreal products. My stylist does not bother, she knows I am happy with my current products.
I have only had issues with C&J loafers before - felt ok instore, hurt the first time I walked in them properly. The best solution I found was wearing them for 3/4 hours indoors, and using shoe trees for two days. I had purchased two loafers, the same model in calfskin and suede; the method worked for both shoes.. You may need to wear the shoes for longer. I wear the calfskin pair more often and have not occurred any issues; as I wear the suede less often they can...
5 suits (one is fashion-forward and not suited to work) Tend to wear suits Mon-Thurs, on Fri a sports jacket or sweater combo - although if I am a halfday during the week then will not wear a suit on that day but wear on Fri.
Bob at Dege & Skinner probably has similar prices to Sean Oscar Udeshi on Davies Street, about £220 for MTM and £260 for bespoke - from what I understand, both MTM and bespoke are made to the standard; however, with the latter there is a trial shirt although there is an eight shirt minimum for bespoke (3/4 minimum for MTM). A cheaper option would be Frank Foster (starting price below £150); however, the wait can be long and if cost is an important factor, you will...
