I work in a very casual office. Not business casual in the sense that people around me dress fashionably because of the industry i'm surrounded in (artists, fashion people). Even the president of the division wears jeans, boots and a sport coat regularly. Never suits. I like it, but people...
I've got a huge wardrobe for a 22 year old, but only have seven ties. 2 are skinny (prada and Jil Sander) to match my skinny lapelled suit. The others are classic. BTW... Domenico Vacca has 9 and 7-folds on sale for $130. Dad bought two when he was in town.
Riddle is great. My great friend gets all his shirts done there. He's pushing two-dozen. Gorgeous. I need to try it when I get back to IL. Funny... I find a great custom shirt maker after I move to NYC.
Bagutta on Greene just down from Cafe Cafe about 6 weeks ago. They have the deepest discounts at sale time. Last season I snagged an all black 100% cashmere, slim lapelled two- button dior overcoat at 70% off as well. I think there sale is dwindled immensely if not over like much of the city.
Dior Homme does command a premium. That's still alot for a denim vest, but I think you could make a bit flipping them. I just snagged a pair of raw denim jeans for $120 on 70% markdown. Ebay prices are many times higher than great sale scores on Dior because you can't find it everywhere.
