I found my first Oxxford suit last week...and passed it up. It was a ventless SB in a 38R. Way too small for me. The tag in the pocket said 1992. There were about 3 other suits from the same guy there. Another was a ventless DB Samuelsohn in a flannel chalkstripe. Really nice suit, but again, I wasn't sure what the appeal of a ventless DB would be here.

Corduroy pants, hemp necklace, birkenstocks. My favorite t-shirt was either my Phish Fall 95 tour shirt, or the shirt with the Maxell logo I got with the UPCs from the hundreds of blank tapes I bought.

I would keep it. I'm wearing a pinstriped flannel Polo Signature suit today with really roped shoulders that I wasn't sure if I could pull off when I bought it. Now it's one...

I have had one for 5 years and it looks the same. If you are set on Macy's just get the Alfani Red Label suit. It comes in separates and is probably as good as the Boss for half the price.

I think this looks great, but what is the consensus on wearing gingham with pinstripes if you are not a super-cool jazz musician? I'm thinking about giving it a try now that I picked up this shirt (in blue)

That is effeminate, and makes the trench look like a dress. Instead, thread it in the back. I'm confused. How exactly am I supposed to tie the belt on my trench in the back?

Split yoke, side gussets, MOP buttons. Fits me very well. The collar has a bit of a ring around it, so it'll get my stain treatment tonight. Do you like those contrast collar/cuff shirts? I've never tried to pull one off, but maybe someday I'll give it a go. Definitely...
