It would take courage to admit owning, let alone wanting, a Sears suit on here. I asked about the longevity ofa JCP tie in the quick answer thread and was resoundingly ignored. Though, we are in Seattle, so I picked up this guy as per your advice. It's the store brand, so was only $50. The JCP tie was gold with narrower navy stripes for $17, but I realized I would go back and buy this one later anyway, and end up spending $67.
