hey man, probably a long shot but i picked up a pair of ricards at nordstrom rack recently (i guess they were clearing some old stock), i think i saw some smaller sizes as well. may be worth a shot if you have one near you.

many perfume counter will have a little mini-spray bottles that they will fill from samples on display for you to take home. they;re tiny spray bottles that are good for 2-3 uses. i know sephora will do this for you, just tell them you want to sample something for a few days at home.
if these are your first pair i would consider not burning a large amount until you know what you need in a pair. at the same time, if you have to wear glasses all day, spending $150 or spending $300 for frames, that $150 is well spent for a pair of comfortable frames that you'll be wearing 12+ hours a day.
i recently looked at the oliver peoples, not too bad, look well made, but their metals are a little expensive, almost mykita territory...
i did go today, its a wierd setup, the basement is the cheaper stuff but i found the sizes tend to run large (i'm a small in steve alan sizes)
upstairs the prices were not that great, dress shirts (SA brand, usa made) are $68, pants are $50 (i did get a nice pair of khakis) includes corduroys. wierd though since the cordoruys were also downstairs in the outlet but in larger sizes only. jackets tend to run in larger sizes, sportcoats were ~$250. duffle sweater cardigans...
to those looking for persol i've seen them at loehmann's all summer and they're on sale (at least at the few i've stopped at recently) for less then $50, so check if you want one and have a loehmann's nearby.

There is no way that my wife is going to tolerate a $900 suit in light of the recent suit purchases I've...
