C&J coming to T&A in NYC - Page 2

Big Al owns T&A. His son Jamie, works at the NYC store. I believe they also own C&J.
Yes, James Al-Fayed is a good guy... very funny. I went to school with him. He is not M. Al-Fayed's son, however. Jay-Z in RLPL down to the socks... lol. I happen to be of the opinion that's the only way to wear PL Oh, and Al-Fayed store ownership (as opposed to owning C&J outright) seems a possibility. I'll check...

i had asked dorian if it was his cousin and if he was the younger fella with curly hair, which i believe he replied as yes to both. damn computers always screwing up.

LOL, that would be something. although i wouldnt be suprised. last month i was there for a fitting and Jay-Z dropped by to have a suit made. dont know why he would chose T&A of all places but he did. Simon replied that all these rappers are comming in for shirts and how odd we both thought it was. i didnt know they offered quadruple XL shirts that are to be worn untucked with baseball caps worn sideways.
Do they have to wait 4 months like the rest of us? And, in the commercial looked like Simon was fitting the rapper for a suit. I think the strangeness of these rappers getting shirts from a proper British man was the point of the commercial. I wish I remembered what it was for. But I am pretty confident it was Simon.

I would think so... Hell, I would hope so. Or even longer.

Turnbull's London store sold Crockett, and its NYC store used to sell Crockett under the Turnbull label. Cheers.
When they sold the Crockett shoes (maybe 7 years ago), I remember that the Eaton loafers cost about $100 more on 57th Street than Pediwear's internet price, and Turnbull only stocked one width.

Probably longer. Celebs are the worst clients to have. They always want a discount or special treatment. Plus, it doesn't benefit T&A to have Jay-Z as a client. It ruins their image. If I was T&A, I'd give him the same run-around they give you other guys.

How are they related then? Nephew? Jamie doesn't add the affected Al like Big Al does though.

You're correct... James' last name is simply Fayed (I added the Al just to show that the two are of the same family). And, yes, James, whose parents live in Greenwich, is Mohammed's nephew -  unless I have been maliciously deceived over the past ten years. Hmmmmm....

I found the commercial online I was talking about. http://www.rbk.com/us/index.html Follow that link through to the I am what I am commercials. Apparently, it is Jay-Z (I am not familiar with his music, but it is apparently ironic that he is buying a proper suit) Let me know if I am crazy.

It is Simon... Jay-Z even asks him (by name.) at the end whether he has ever bought an album.
