How true-to-size is the neck measurement? To the tape, a 15.5 fits me best, but I wear smalls from J. Crew/BR--published as a 14-14.5 neck--with no real problem. If the neck seems a bit forgiving then these look ideal.
I'm in the same boat.
But I'll say that for the money, J. Crew is my go-to store for wool products. I get most of my sweaters from them, and it seems the only place to get a 100% wool cardigan for a reasonable price (With sale prices they can be had for under 50$). That said, this winter they seemed to have exclusively shawl collars, which do not appeal to me, and the few basic ones they had were out of my size by the time the sales hit.

There is 30% off all men's items at last call by neiman marcus, which seems like a good place to go if you want unusually patterned though well-constructed house brand dress shirts for 35$, or some Callaway polos.
I picked up these sebagos for 100$, this after trying to convince myself I could afford a pair of oak street trail moccasins. I feel like I paid about what they're worth.
Thanks y'all. One of these weekends I need to get to NYC...no Club Monaco and the like around where I'm from.
Any one have experience with MTM oxfords in the metro NY area? I'm in southern CT at the moment, but if I can get that done for a little bit more than I'd spend at BB I'd consider making an adventure out of it.
Thought about picking up some oxfords from LEC during the fall sale but the collar kept me away. I need something to wear with a tie half the time; as a...
