If I found a Swatch I'd be pumped (big fan of them). All I ever see looks like the crap you can get at Wal MArt.

This, of course, begs the question, if you were a diver and needed a Diver's Watch, why on earth would you consider wearing something named Guess?

5 pairs of Marbitex and one pair of Inco's at Daffy's in NYC.
Now I get it.

Just remember to wear boxers that match the color of your pants so it's less obvious when the ass blows out. (seriously - finally got a couple pairs of incos that fit well in trades and they ARE nice, though I don't know about Zanella-Platinum nice)

Never fear, TheWGP -- I got some Zanellas for you right here. I'd love to know how much those Mabitexes go for at Daffy's. I mean, I like the ones I've acquired here just fine, but can't imagine paying up to $200 for them. Does anyone pay that amount? Do regular stores even sell them, or is that just a myth? Hmmmm...

Hmmmm...

At Daffy's they're 29.99-49.99 I believe, depending on the material and the sale.

I've seen Incotex at even Midwestern men's shops, and Barney's carries them. Saks/NM did, but I don't turn any up on their website at the moment so I can't verify.

Mabitex... I've never seen at retail. Hell, I've never seen a pair period, only seen Incos.



Oh, and yesterday in a trip where I only found a NWT LL Bean Signature shirt for the Trads, I saw a Claeholi shirt. Made me laugh, anyway...

Last Saturday, I bought 5 pairs of Mabitex at the Daffy's in Philadelphia for a total of about $130. The linen/cotton pants are $20. The wool pants were on the clearance rack and were $37.50. And the cotton pair was $30. Each pair was super long. I'm guessing the inseam might even be a 36. They will need to be hemmed.
