Either you're being funny, or that was weird.

Dude is notorious. I actually didn't see your post until you quoted it since you posted in between me reading and clicking post and then I got paged.

On / off topic - a CNBC show that re-aired the other night and I only caught the last few minutes.  "Luxury Boom" - the new big spenders (who they are, what they're buying - heavy emphasis on clothing & accessories).  Originally from March 2012 but still relevant.  Video.

No competition, I don't look that good in a bra.

I wasn't planning on going out today, but ended up going to one store nearby. I am glad I did. I found a recent solid navy J Press suit that fits nearly perfectly (sleeves need to be lengthened slightly).



And a recent made in Canada J Press wool/cashmere herringbone 3/2 sack SC(39S) that is a little short so it's available.

Ran by a couple of stores this evening and picked up a few items, including several brands I hadn't seen in the wild before.  First up, dress shirts by Facconable and Canali.  Both in my size.

 

1000

 

 

Then, found my first Etro and J. Press.  Also picked a Brooks Brothers tie I liked.  Is there any value in picking up Yves Saint Laurent?  They had a few, but this is the only one I was willing to get stuck with if there was no flip value.

 

1000

That YSL looks recent enough to not be a licensed POS, but I don't think it's anything particularly coveted.  

 

It might be nearing the end of the appropriate season, but I just thrifted a solid linen shirt:
