    I just got back from NYC and I tried on a few items from J Crew and id have to say the quality is pretty meh.

    I def would not pay retail - the quality is similar to Country Road

    I'd love to see a) Uniqlo and b) Land's End open up shop in Australia, followed by Brooks Brothers for higher-end stuff. I think that there's a slim chance that Uniqlo could open a store or two in Australia, but sadly I think that hell will freeze over before Land's End or BB open up here.

    Oddly enough, I popped into Azzaro yesterday too. Oh. My. Goodness. It took me all my energy not to walk out with half the shop. I just bought a Canali tie .. possibly one the the nicest ties I've ever seen and I just had to have it. I'm planning on going back today for a shirt or two ... and maybe even an Antichi Telai suit. I was very impressed with the suits ... but they are a little slimmer than I'm used to. I did find the cut quite flattering on me, though. Maybe I should just push the button and then work out how to sneak it past the Mrs when I get back home?

    What are Azzaro's shoes like? I forget the name of the brand. I know they had some Canali shoes, but there was another brand whose name escapes me. There was a nice pair of double monks hiding under a table that looked especially tasty.

    Sneaking a suit past the missus is very different from a pair of shoes. Too much surface area not to be noticed.:lol:

    I thought I could get away with wearing a new suit I got from CD in his big Movember sale. Got caught but then she shut up when I told her it cost me AUD30!

    Very nice Canali BTW = my near exact size.:fonz:



    There should have been no hesitation IMO..

    I've posted it before, but Beau Brummel with some ugly mug whose pants could probably do with some shortening.

    These are the only silver/grey ones I have in my stock. Which to go with? And perhaps I have to lose the square too. Lacking a solid white cotton/linen one.

    RE : Shoes at Azzaro. He stocks a lot of Bartelesi, which apparently are predominantly deer calf leather using a Bologna construction. Blahman has a pair of Bartelesi wholecuts.

    He also has some Canali shoes, Versace Collection shoes (mainly loafers) and loafers/trainers from Leyva, a spanish company.

    I'd go with the shepherd's check one, as it's an absolute classic. Also, dash out and by a plain white pocket square!
