speaking of ties, i picked up 2 robert talbotts, 1 jhane barnes, and a (drum roll) pierre cardin. oh also a wool knit tie by pendleton. something like $2-3/ea. don't ask me why i got them. i never wear ties. also found a kinda cool zippered mock turtleneck by 'bachrach'. it has a pocket on the sleeve and those kindof nylon-ish patches on the top of the shoulders, i guess it's military inspired. couple sportcoats that fit perfectly, no fancy brand (dominic d'bruzza), but pretty nice material. going to pick up my shoes saturday (see previous post), can't wait. ...i forgot to mention, the black AE 'Austin', that's a wholecut shoe. no broguing, just two smooth leather size 13's.
