Isn't VLSI a mod? (His tag says "Hall Monitor" rather than "Senior Member," so I always perk up and engage in paroxysms of regretful self-evisceration whenever he pops in and asks a question.)

So you choose the Clockwork Orange outfit to look directly into the camera and go all Malcolm McDowel? Absolutely, categorically chilling.

The Isaia wool is so sexy it should have had a NSFW tag. Y u no make available??


6 stores today. Some OK stuff -- Zegna shirt in great condition, AE slip ons in great condition, [until recently] current label HF solid navy blue suit, all half price -- but no firsts. And then, in a store I'd never have expected: BARBA (*pop!*) 3 shirts down, Borrelli. Canali. All in 100% perfect condition. Sorry, dudes, the Napolis are my size, and I'm keeping the sh*t out of them.

Pics tomorrow I hope.

EDIT: I've taken to internally calling the Zanella triple pleats "Sharks", on account of the resemblance between the numerous pleats and shark gills. But today I saw Super Sharks: QUADRUPLE pleated Zanellas. HFS!!

Edit 2: WAIT! How could I forget! Look at this converted sofa I passed on today:

+1 the liddesdale is great in transition weather. Wore the one I picked up a couple months ago til the temp dipped real low. Some of the quilting was coming unstitched (read: at least 20% of the stitching was coming undone) so I sent it in to Barbour in NH and they are fixing the quilting free of charge. Can't wait to rock it again in the Spring.

I wouldn't say it's crap but you do have to be careful and check where it's made. I've seen ZS shirts from China, Turkey, Romania and Italy. Fit is completely different depending on the where it's made and it happens that the ones that fit me the best were from Italy. Have picked up a few over the last few months and left at least a dozen behind.

Since it's been a while since my last clothes-related post, here's the highlight reel of the last 6 - 8 weeks or so:

That pheasant is awesome! This is an all around solid highlight real. I wish the discount stores in Toronto carried those ties...unreal! How do you like the EZ shoes? I thrifted a pair of the dress boots not too long ago but haven't had the chance to wear them yet.

Solid graph although I don't think I could go from thrifting Canali, EZ and Corneliani to "progressing" and paying retail for BB...but maybe that's just me...I would think my next logical step would be to go to a solid tailor and spend the cost of a new BB suit on tailoring my new wardrobe.

I'm sure one of you young bucks is going to tell me I'm wrong, and the UCC actually has some kind of exception on point, but at the very least, I would have made my dissatisfaction highly audible, and would definitely have asked for a manager and threatened to call the Better Business Bureau AND TJX customer service...

The sign in the store says the computer printer is $2.49, but it rang up at $249. Saying it was an error, the store is refusing to honor the posted price.

The law


It's generally a myth that retailers must honor a posted price if it's simply a mistake, although some stores might do so as a matter of policy or on a case-by-case basis. The issue gets murky if the retailer begins processing the order, something that is more likely to happen online, says Jane Winn, a professor at the University of Washington Law School. But even then, she says, a merchant might be able to cancel the purchase if the price was so low that a buyer should have known it was mistake. An online retailer's fine print may relieve it of the duty to fulfill orders based on pricing error

There is so much price and package switching (sometimes unintentional on the part of customers) going on that unless all of the others in the store were priced the same, I'd say no to the marked price without accusing the customer. That said, if the price was close to a normal sale price or even a clearance price, I'd say yes for customer service reasons. I'd call this one iffy and would probably try to follow the route that the store took.

I was about to say "I don't want to hear that noise," but the more I think about it, this point is well taken and fair enough. I guess even I wouldn't get stroppy if it was entirely clear that the price was a mistake (not mere regret), and that sale at that price wouldn't cover their costs. Usually that's going to involve the price being orders of magnitude off from the normal price (as in the case in the example -- $249 vs $2.49). If it's merely a fractional multiple ($59 vs $159), that feels more like remorse and someone who knows better is second-guessing the person who was assigned the task of assigning prices. Well, that's just too bad. If you wanted better control on pricing, you should have done it yourself. When the pricer makes a mistake by moving the decimal, that's one thing. When the pricer meant to assign the price on the tag EDIT: in good faith, but someone else feels that price should have been higher, my sympathy is less than nonexistent.
