    *hijack* Is a RJ shirt a good buy or not? Do they size small (can I get away with half size less than what I usually wear)?

    thanks

    I think they size approrpriately. My RJ shirts aren't at all small. They fit fairly well, if a bit blousy in the arms. They also run about 110 on sale at Barneys. Not sure I'd pay full price for them.

    I don't think I'll be buying more RJ shirts in the future. At his prices, you can now get decent bespoke which would feature almost always better cloth, and certainly better construction and buttons. RJ's shirts were cheaper some years ago before the exchange rate fiasco, and at that time his styles were elegant but very striking -- striped patterns that weren't often seen elsewhere. The quality was OK. At around $200, I sprang for some and bought many others on sale. Nowadays garish striped shirts are everywhere, and RJ has generally incorporated more elegant and subtle designs... but many of those are similar to what much better shirtmakers like Turnbull & Asser put out in similar price ranges and designs. And, of course, two years ago sourcing switched from Britain to Slovakia for his shirts, so his margin must be fantastic now that he's getting almost $300 or more for a shirt.

    Great ties, socks, cufflinks and knits though. And I love my RJ wallet.

    Anyone know anything about Duncan's umbrellas? I have to say I find some of them quite attractive, especially the black one with white piping.

    just that they're expensive at $185 ea. I like the way they look too, but I probably need an umbrella 10 days out of the year in LA.

    Toni Truant rue Guisarde has or had a good RJ selection -- ties, leathergoods, socks and cufflinks.

    Given the scoarching heat we are experiencing, I have turtled myself in my apartment and I have refused to take my usual lunch breaks to go shopping for les soldes. My account balance feels so much better! I'll try to give a look though thanks for the tip. !luc

    Wait, you smell that?
    I'm a fan of DQ myself. I'm curious where people have purchased his goods. I've got a couple of DQ shirts from Bloomie's (bev center, L.A.)for a significant discount, and contemplated a couple of his ties, but really didn't need to spend $60 for it at the moment.

    I just want to know where else I should be looking for DQ when they go on sale, since Bloomie's has a limited selection.

    Saks also carries DQ, right now they are half off the sale price making them about $90....Bloomingdales may or may not carry his line for the fall/winter. Also, his website had a sale on shirts last january that was quite good for the select items on sale.

    Sounds good. I'll check Saks out either at South Coast or San Diego as I head that way next week.

    Saks SCP doesnt have Duncan Quinn, as far as I know of.....the Wilshire store is the one I was referring to. Don't know about San Diego (they have a SFA there??)
