I have a simple request: can you doomsayers point out for me a few evidences of this sea of change? Lest the market is significantly
different than, say, last April, I would just attribute the "trend" to seasonal factors, the slow economy, and last but not least, nostalgia.

Mind telling us where you two live? For I'd kill to find Dior Homme suit and Corthay shoes at >50% discount at garage sales, anywhere.
