    No, I got it at a NY store called Harrison James that was in business for a very short time in the 1990s.

    I think CBD is amazingly boring. There are nuances that can be pulled off whereas one can look blah [save fit] from a distance but patterns & textures can be noted as you near. I think gdl & MAnton do this well. Isn't this the point?

    Not true, the weather has just been bad here, rough weather=big shoes.

    gnatty - looks good but I can't help thinking that it would look so much better with a wider shirt collar spread. The square edge also seems so close to the stripe color that you would have been better off hiding the edge IMO

    Yeah, I think I agree on the collar, the point collar doesn't seem to take up enough real estate in there, looks lonely.
