I think you'll find loads of Stafford stuff wherever you go, people just tend to only post when they find exceptional stuff.
Pics or it didn't happen!!!
I have lived here through college and the good portion of my professional life and have never been compelled to say, "Wow. That's a well-dressed guy" upon passing or meeting any one in Omaha
Another fellow Omahan, Achilles, found some Stefano Ricci shirts once while thrifting IIRC. But I think you may have gotten lucky.
Yes there is a lot of money in Omaha, however if you're rich as balls you typically don't look it. (Tons of boomers and their BRK-A and tons of wealthy farmers. Most are Buffett idols and live their lives in the miserly ways of Warren himself.
For the youth of Omaha, I gather that names with marketing cache like Burberry and Boss are pretty popular. I see a lot of that Burberry check around town. I have a tie that garners a lot of compliments and the exchange goes like this.
-That is a great tie. Is it Burberry?
-Thanks. No. It's Tom Ford.
-Oh. What's that? Did you get it at Von Maur?
Not many Omahans have heard of names like Attolini, Partenopea and Isaia.
