Has anyone purchased NM private label ties lately? They're on sale at LC for $12 today, shipping included. I'm looking at the staple colors, like this one.

Most consumers have to be more concerned about being too hot rather than too cold. You can throw an overcoat on a lighter suit, but there's no equivalent countermeasure in the summer. Three-season signals to me "the wool is too heavy for weather above 85 degrees."
Relatively good selection of $35 shirts, compared to normal. However, non-irons start at $44 and staple colors are still mostly $69.
Putting the DC question aside for a second (and as one of the city's four native sons I assure you that J. Crew polos, while common, are optional), let my advice be about buying stuff before you get to college. When I was a freshman, I had an impressive collection of Timberland boots, Nautica jeans, and white T's (it was typical clothing for DC at the time). By sophomore year, I had moved to polos and khakis. Point being: you're at a point in your life where your...

Definitely more fitted than 346 tends to be, but not as snug as the Varvatos sweaters I own. I'd analogize to J. Crew/Banana Republic, although I haven't bought anything from those stores in a while.
Better deal, IMHO, is going on right now at Bloomingdale's: I just picked up a couple of sweaters off the site. Supima, in a bunch of colors. Some of the colors that were available in the morning are now gone.
Dude does not have a good rep on SF. See the comments on this thread dealing with a previous Groupon deal.
Received another pair last week; great quality as always. I had the same problem with the laces as one poster had above--pair that came with the shoes broke as soon as I tried to tie them--but I was going to replace the laces anyway. Some incredible deals still available.
I did some research earlier this spring on the subject. STP (Sierra Trading Post) has a good deal for Haspel seersucker for $130, if you used the 30% off coupon code that's on the front page. The Haspel suit is very boxy, however, and I had to have significant alterations on the jacket. If you're going to spend more than $175-$200, then I would go with Bonobos. The quality strikes me as nicer. Note there's a $50 off coupon for first-time purchasers....
I am heading to Rehobeth for Memorial Day weekend. I haven't been to an outlet in years (pre-SF days), and I was wondering which, if any, people would recommend. Do any of these outlets carry any mainline items, or is it all made-for-outlets clothing (e.g. BB 346)?
