The final Glenroyal one in your pics is the one I have. It's true the zipper at the top is kind of younger and less professional but given the rest of how I dress, I don't think I'm in much danger of looking too young or unprofessional.

The locking/latch ones look more IB/lawyer to me. The straps and buckles thing does look more professorial, it just seems like a huge PitA to deal with every time you're going somewhere or need to grab something out or your bag while on the metro or something.

I have this Tustings zip top bag. It's perfect for what it is but it's a bit small if you need to carry a laptop and charger.

Does Mabitex fit TTS or should I size up to a 33 to accommodate 33-34 waist? I am thinking since they are more like dress trousers, a 32 should be vanity size so can accommodate up to 33"

sale on GILT with 30% off...want to give it a try but no returns.

YOOX order should be in today and ordered 3 trousers.wow.gif

FME, the cuts are all over the place. There's no real way of telling what the cut will be, but generally, you should just go TTS and hope for the best.

I personally wouldn't recommend buying them at no returns, but you can roll the dice.

So, my trousers came in from Yoox

All made in Italy, all very "raw." Hems are unfinished, some seams come undone at the hem, threads here and there.
SARTELLI sent me a pair in Super 120 and 100, which I thought was nifty ... was going to keep the 120 but decided to just return.

Going to try go with the entry level stuff like Incotex or Mabitex if I find any on eBay. Sad / relieved.

Anyone in New York City? If so, can someone recommend a hotel that's on par with Four Seasons but is a bit more affordable? I'm asking for a friend.

Tell your friend, good luck...

+1. Even the normal Marriotts are $400+ a night. Kinda scared to know what the Four Seasons here costs...

A friend of mine has been liking the new hip hotels like the Nomad Hotel.

OK OK, how about just really nice hotel recommendations?

On par as in terms of old world? Like the Pierre or the St. Regis?

I assume he is looking for something in Midtown.

I can recommend The Benjamin. About $350-400 per night with corporate discount. http://www.thebenjamin.com/

A step up would be The Peninsula. One of the best hotels that I have stayed at but it will be closer to $750 per night. http://www.peninsula.com/New_York/en/default.aspx

I imagine those two are really quite expensive. I'm happy to pass their names along though. If you have other recommendations - perhaps something nice, but not as luxurious (ie affordable), let me know.

I usually just stash any luggage at Penn Station and stay out until some nice young lady offers me a place to stay.

Is this why you're looking to commission some heavier coats this year?
