Certain Ferragamo and Prada shoes. Quality is sub-par (more so for Prada), and I won't pay retail for them, but when it comes to stylish shoes that are good for both dress and long distance walking, I've yet to find something more comfortable.

Yes,yes with Gucci especially. Other than the disco Guccis (but even the loop on their strap broke the first night) they feel great and are perfectly balanced and comfortable but fall apart instantly. And when you take them back to Gucci they have to send them back to Italy which can take up to 12 weeks for repair.

Love/hate relationship.

This may sound like SF blasphemy, but I am amazed at how good the St. Johns Bay Pique Heritage Polos are at JC Penney. They are listed at $30-something but routinely go on sale for around $10. I bought a couple about 1 year ago and they have held up remarkably well. They are in a regular rotation, getting used every 10 days or so and they look like new. The colors are vibrant, the collars in good shape and the arm bands have not lost even a bit of their elasticity. Worth every penny of the ten bucks I paid for them.....

I have a gray button-up sweater vest I like wearing more than any of my higher-end sweaters.... it's from Club Monaco!!

CM is definitely not SF approved but their sweaters I think are excellent.

Not really. I would say high quality crap...

Compared to other watches in the same price range the quality is not at the same level. On the other hand I am not a watch nerd and care more about the look than the quality of the movement and I do like the design of the ones I got.

I happen to like a simple grey or beige sport coat, simple herringbone maybe, a touch of cashmere for some fuzzy feel and I'm a happy camper.

+1. I really like textures and patterns, but I don't want my jackets to scream that they're odd.
(Pun intended).
