    You can buy blank links and any jeweler or arts/crafts store will be able to engrave it.

    Wait... it fits, you like it, and you already own it. And you need the Internet's opinion before wearing it?

    needs SOME work. Wondering whether its worth it as I already have another glen plaid suit... I really don't feel I can justify owning two nearly indistinguishable suits, and I'm trying to figure out which to axe.

    Be like me when I was in college. I had an entire closet full of black suits.

    pB, I can't wear black. I look enough like a gay vampire cop in my "normal" clothes. I'm too pale, too skinny, and too stuck up to wear a black suit without looking like an anorectic Secret Service agent.

    I never would recommend anybody wear black. I knew nothing then. I am just saying, that my wardrobe had slightly less variability than my current. :laugh:

    I think Prada has some from a couple season back. They may have been suede, though - not completely sure.

    I'd love to be able to wear this Alexander McQueen tie in the office, but can't think of a shirt to wear it with that wont leave me (a redhead) completely washed out looking.

    There's no way of getting away with this at work, is there?

    (apologies for the double post from a page ago, my posts weren't showing up yesterday)

    What is the standard cost of adding working button holes to a blazer that currently has unfinished sleeves? It's black fleece and when I stopped by the local BB store (after calling twice to confirm cost would be $10-$16 according to two different SAs) the in house tailor said $96 and it would take at least three weeks. BF in San Francisco said $75 but it's done by Franz so I would just take it to him directly. Is this in line? I thought it would be a little less?

    I've paid anywhere from $80 - $110 for handmade button holes.....cheaper for machine made holes.
