    Brooks Brothers Full Dress Shirt

    For those of you who have purchased detachable turndown collars from www.vintageshirt.co.uk to go with your BB formal shirts, which collar did you select? I see the "Albany collar," which is described as starched white cotton, or the "Soft separate collars," which are described as white poplin...

    Lands End tailored fit trousers

    I have several pairs of the LE tailored fit trousers, and I like the fit. Based on your description, I'd definitely recommend the tailored over the traditional fit for you. The tailored fit are slimmer than their regular pants, but nowhere near tight. Their traditional fit is actually quite...

    Used Audi - Good Investment ?

    I am curious as to what Audi has to offer. I am locked in for my incoming 335i (waiting for it to arrive). The BMW residual is 63% for three years at 12k per year, money factor is .00180. All maintenance and normal wear and tear items are covered with exception of tires. Well as of a month...

    Used Audi - Good Investment ?

    From 07' on, Audi no longer provides the maintenance included with the car, but you can still purchase it (for $550 if memory serves me correctly), and IMHO its money well spent. Seriously though, if you are considering leasing, I would consider a BMW, they have much better lease rates and have...

    Michel Angelo suit, any good?

    If I am not mistaken, they are canvassed with fused lapels. Construction is very good at the price point. I'm not sure exactly what you mean by "canvassed with fused lapels," but for clarification, my two Michel Angelos are fully fused. No canvas anywhere. Nevertheless, that doesn't bother me...

    Michel Angelo suit, any good?

    I'm wearing a Michel Angelo suit today. I picked up two of them off of STP a few months back for less than $300. At that price, I think they're a great suit. They are fused, but it seems to be a very light fusing. Not at all stiff. Most of all, I like the cut and the way they fit me. Their 38...

    Oxxford suit on Ebay...what do you think?

    That's a lot for a used suit when Filene's Basement has them new for $800. Agree with that statement, but there are two key exceptions in this case. First, this ebay suit appears to be NWT also, and second, Filene's will almost never have something as basic as a solid navy blue. Most of Filene's...

    Joseph Collection at JAB...any comments?

    I haven't bought one, but I have tried them on in the store. As is typical for Jos. Bank, it's definitely not worth the MSRP of $895, but for $190, I'd say you might have a nice workhorse type of suit. Much better cut than JAB's typical offerings, in my opinion. Narrower lapels, higher gorge...

    Hickey Freeman Barrett model

    Does anyone have any experience with the Hickey Freeman Barrett model? HF website I'm somewhat desperate for a navy suit in the short term, and the HF website has a basic navy pinstripe at half price. I'm familiar with the Madison model, but haven't tried on the Barrett model. Any idea how it...

    best/worst corporate logos

    How about some good ones from the world of sports. I've always thought this old Milwaukee Brewers logo was great... Much better than the awful one they replaced it with... I'm glad to hear they're actually bringing back the old logo for their alternate uniform this year.

    Anybody Heard From Jantzen Recently?

    Received two shirts yesterday. Wearing one now. Order was placed on 3/2/06. Received an email from Ricky about a week and a half ago saying that one fabric I ordered was out of stock, but that the other shirts were on their way. Total time about 5-6 weeks.

    Les Copains

    I have a Les Copains tie I picked up in Rome about two years ago.  I knew nothing about the brand name then (and I still don't) but I just liked the look and feel of the particular tie.  If I recall correctly, I paid about 60 euros. I like the texture and the thickness, and it ties a good...

    CHEAP Alden bluchers on Ebay

    I can definitely vouch for this seller. I've bought numerous things from him. I had seen these shoes and was actually going to ask who made them for Brooks Bros. I guess Alden is the answer? Does these correspond to any regular Alden style number, or is it something that is Brooks-specific?

    Polo 40% off code

    Does anyone have any experience with the "Congressman" suit?  It's a 3-button, but somewhat hard for me to tell if it's a true 3-button, or if the lapel rolls to the second button.  Any other comments on cut or fit from someone who has worn one before? Also, is this one made by...
