Some jeans or khakis, cheap dress shirts, and cotton unlined blazer is as nice as I'll bring to Vegas. Basically anything I...

They definitely have a legacy of producing some ugly-as-shit ties. I have quite a few of them that I never wear. Maybe I should put them up on eBay as a batch and see if anyone bites. I...

Not Borrelli or Kiton, but on discount they're pretty damn nice. Who in MN carries APC? I assumed you were talking about LD, but I have never seen an APC piece in there. I remember asking a sales rep about it once and he told me they wanted to carry APC but that APC was...

Last week I scored an XMI Platinum tie, a recent Zegna tie, and a really nice John Nordstrom made in Italy tie. All about $2 each. I also found a set of Polo suspenders in tartan plaid, all leather on the ends with the polo logo emobssed on the leather in the back (where the "Y" is, I don't know what you call this). So today I tried them on. They are from the boys collection. Or for pants w/ about an 18" rise. I can't decide. If anyone has a son and wants a pair of...
I'm a little late to the party here (and I don't wear party shirts), but I've been seeing shirts from a line called Rufus a lot lately, and they look like party shirts to me. Expensive, made in the US. What's the story on these?
Made in Okiyama Japan, Zimbabwean cotton
I am able to get a couple of pairs of KMW 2010 (NWT) for $150 shipped CONUS. Retail is $275. They are available in sizes 32x34 and 33x34. Let me know if you are interested by PM and I will send you details. These seem to be sold out pretty much everywhere. I picked up a pair for myself and they are definitely of the highest quality. These are the jeans: http://www.contextclothing.com/item.php?id=90 Made in Japan.

I got some Brioni socks at Neiman Marcus for my wedding. Just seemed like a fun, silly thing to do. They were only $30 though. Of course, I don't carry much cash and I don't have an AMEX, so I had to run to the ATM just to buy the socks from stupid NM. To this day, that's still the only thing I've ever bought there. I wear the socks about twice a year. They're really not anything that special.
