Jack- Through years of trial and error I have culled my preferences down to a very small number of suppliers: SUITS - I divide them into 3 catagories High end - Gianluca Isaia MTM Standard - Ralph Lauren MTM Everyday Suits - Paul Stuart I generally order a few suits in the fall and the spring SHOES - Again, a few catagories High End - Edward Green - special order. I order 3-4 pairs a year. Standard - Alden Cordovan Everyday/Rain shoes - Allen Edmonds SHIRTS- High end - Turnbull & Asser MTM Standard - Brooks Brothers MTM 90% with french cuffs. TIES- I prefer grenadine silk ties, which I pick up at Paul Stuart. I like seasonal ties, and pick up the heavier wool and cashmere ones at Bergdorf in the fall. POCKET SQUARES - Paul Stuart, great selection Gray seems to be my official color, with the majority of my suits ranging from a really light pearl gray to a nice deep charcoal chalkstripe. Favorite color scheme is gray suit, white shirt, black grenadine tie, or some form of it. Generally with tan shoes, but you knew that already. How about you? Where do you like to shop?
