Good point. I would honestly prefer if they were a little bit less attentive, but given that it's not ever very busy in there I suppose that's to be expected. In general the guys have been really nice, though.
I strongly prefer Morris & Sons, but that may just be because the salespeople at Syd Jerome have almost always rubbed me the wrong way. SJ definitely has a great selection and their trunk shows are nice (e.g., Samuelsohn), but Morris & Sons also has trunk shows regularly and the prices are just more competitive on the whole.I also like that they have free parking right out front, and it's usually pretty quiet in there so you can just hang out for a bit. YMMV of course.
They've got a ton of high end OTR suits/sportcoats - Kiton, Belvest, Caruso, Pal Zileri, Luciano Barbera, etc. Most everything is 30% off retail as the starting point. They also sell Lobb and EG shoes, have lots of nice shirts/pants, outerwear, etc.Pretty cool spot to shop.
PSA to those in the Chicago area - the Bloomingdale's on Michigan Ave has two Eidos suits in size 42L, one is a light grey micro check and the other a darker grey plaid. Both are on the extra 50% off rack in the suits section and priced somewhere between $600-$700. These were both returns originally purchased at the SF Bloomingdale's (i.e., the Chicago store doesn't carry the full line yet but has these two for sale right now).
It's Camoshita / United Arrows. I'm impressed with the quality - thick wool, waistband on the back, thick horn buttons, made in Japan. Spur of the moment Yoox pick up, but I think NMWA stocks them as well?
A few recent pickups...not normally in the market for an overcoat at this time of year, but it was a good deal and the fit was spot on so I went for it. It's gonna kill me to have to wait until winter to wear it!
All ties are brand new with tags attached. They are generally $95 shipped, although there are a few that are less - these are noted next to the description below. I have multiples of some, and any that are no longer available I will strikethrough.These include shipping in the US, and anyone not in the US please ask me for international shipping. The ties are all 3.15-3.25" wide and 58-60" long.Thanks!Self-tipped rust colored foulard - 100% wool [[SPOILER]] Self-tipped...
