Andrew Harris, in his excellent description of Castangia, mentions that they can only be obtained at Barneys, Bergdorf, and one other boutique in NYC: what is the name of this boutique?

Also, where can one obtain Chester Barrie MTM besides Turnbull and Asser? TA's prices seem rather high (above 3000 for MTM seems like a rip-off to me).

Bergdorf's MTM private label line, Barney's under the Battistoni label, and Jay Kos under the Jay Kos private label. There could be others that I'm not aware of as well...

The only location I'm aware of for Chester Barrie MTM is Carrol & Company in Beverly Hills. But I haven't put much time into researching that - I'm sure there are other's. Perhaps Steve could weigh in on this one.

Any idea who else makes suits for Carrol & Co.? I have several suits with that label that were my stepfather's, who lived in Beverly Hills at the time. They are at least 10 years old, possibly 20 or more (no idea really).

I was offered them by my mother when he died, and I took them thinking perhaps I could get them altered to fit me, but they're just too big. It was also in part a sentimental gesture since it made my mother feel good to think I might wear his clothes, but the truth is they are bagged up in a closet doing no one any good. Perhaps with her blessing, I'll dust them off and see what they might fetch on ebay.
