    It is almost the time to unpack all the linen and put away the cashmere. Every year I get antsy and take my seasonal clothes out to early, can't be wearing linen pants when it's 30 degrees outside. Also I am looking to get some summer weight cashmere, as all the cashmere I presently have is thicker, winter/fall weight. I have plenty of linen sweaters,shirts,pants,jackets,suits,and socks,etc. but am curious as to how cool even thin cashmere will be? anyone tried voile for a shirting? It's weird, every winter I long for summer to wear linen and every summer I long for winter to wear cashmere.

    You are apparently living in an alternate dimension Boston than the one I live in... Jay and I visited the store yesterday as well. Very interesting, and much better selection in both casualwear than Louis, NM, or Saks, and suiting and shirting (didn't look at shoes) at about the same level, although I think that Louis is still better on that field.

    Louis is definitely going to get a run for it's money, though. I have a feeling that Louis is really going to have to step up it's casualwear game. Louis has a great selection of Dries van Noten and Neil Barrett, as well as Marni, Haute, and Yen, but honestly, I've been less than inspired that past few times I've gone to their third floor. Compounding that with Barney's earlier and gradually better markdowns, and I think that Debi Greenberg is really going to have to get a better feel for men's casualwear/streetwear, or she is going to have to hire someone she can trust on that front.

    I think that the smaller boutiques, including Alan Bilzerian, with a terrific houseline in addition to Margiela and Yamamoto as backbone to terrifically edited selections from smaller, fresh, designers every season, and Stels, which is terrific and brings in fresh designers all the time (if only they had more stuff though...) are going to feel the pinch less than Louis will.

    I agree with you LA Guy, but think you posted your answer to the wrong post. I have another post, Barney's Boston, I think you are replying to that one, as this one asks a few diff. questions.
