    Oh my, that is very, very sad.

    Demeis is also in a dire situation, living in Rochester and all. Of course, I'm a little concerned he'll get beaten up by the boys if he dresses in elegant suits.

    Just a reminder, the giveaway ends soon.

    I will announce the winner this Sunday night, after I return from my wife and my visit to Jekyll Island, GA.

    Spread the wealth. Make more than one person happy (and this way others wont be sad).

    Just my .02

    Happy 2005 to all.

    Absolutely. And if you agree with that idea, make those 2 or 3 you will choose send you directly a list of the clothes, rated in order of preference, and see how you can best accommodate them?

    I agree with the "split it up" idea, if only because I would really love some of those Turnbull squares. I'm just drooling at the thought of getting my hands on some T&A... oh, and the pocket squares too.

    Its actually worse.  I live in Geneva (Hobart and William Smith colleges and home to a trival pursuit question about a drainage tile museum).  So I have to drive the 45 minutes just to get to Rochester.

    As for splitting it up i think thats a good idea as well.  If i won i was planning on giving away the RLPL and Fluser jackets +the dinner jacket because I'm not sure how much i would wear them and why not spred the wealth.

    I'm getting married in July, and the dinner suit would be terrific. Plus, 1) of my over 2000 posts, I have slagged classic clothing afficionados in fewer than half; 2) everyone would have the satisfaction of knowing that my future wife can get me to dress properly, at least for our reception (in the evening); and 3) I promise not to insult ernest for, say, 100 posts. Or unless he *really* provokes me.

    Happy New Year ALL.

    And the winner is Demeis. You sound a lot like me when I was a 20 year old in college. I preferred Brooks Brothers button downs and repp stripe ties to whatever the current fashion trend was (Guess jeans and Members Only jackets?).

    Enjoy the clothes and wear them well. And post a picture of you wearing them in the future and let us know what you think of them.

    Please send me a private message with your name and mailing address and I will box them up and ship them to you.

    Happy New Year to you and yours.
