Still strong against the Euro, which is good news for me.

The dollar's decline is just an opportunity to reflect on what you really need, save a little more, think a little more.

Or quickly buy everything you might ever want before it slips any further?

A "Just for Men" ad?

I have suits that I treat more carefully than others. Probably cause they are newer or cost more. Then as they slip down the pecking order over time they come out more often in inclement weather.

As for local prices going up, will this dent the minor retail revival that seems to have been occurring (or that I am imagining)?

Depends if units purchased decrease - still 22m people growing at 1.5% pa that need to buy things. If same units are purchased @ higher price then local sales go up and all good.

Well if local prices do go up in relation to the dollars decline the great unwashed will (not) realise that their all just cash cows there to be milked. Think their could be some sort of backlash? At present the dollar is like a character in Waiting for Godot.

And me. I find I buy most things online from the EU/UK. Rarely do I buy anything from the US. 

 

Menswear wise, what's cheaper buying from the US? Surely the majority of our purchases come from the old world?

Button-down shirts, chino pants, and Ralph Lauren suits!

Lol, all of these being RL?

A large proportion of the affiliates on here are US based. USD is also the currency of choice for a lot of MTM operations.

No, the first two (for me, at least) are from Land's End. I also buy sneakers, boat shoes and knit ties from the US, so I'd better start stocking up!
