Yeah, I'm stoked. I didn't have any glen plaid suits, and I really wanted one, so to find a Chester Barrie at the last second on eBay was great...but I had no time to look into the exact details of its manufacture. I was just curious as to the quality of these "made in England for Barney's" CBs, and how they compare to the rest of the CB offerings.
Thanks. I'm especially stoked because I found a new thrift/church store in the city today, but after sifting through everything, much to my chagrin, I had found a number of jewels (a few Oxxford, H-F, and Southwick sport coats and suits, a beautiful Burberry DB tan camel hair blazer, etc.) but none in my size. Good to make a score like this at home, glass of wine in hand, at the end of a fruitless thrift-shopping day. I really must start buying up all the nice stuff in this town that is NOT my size and sell it on eBay... Wish I wasn't so lazy.
BTW, Carlo, I must agree with everyone else that those new formal ties (yes, especially the paisley.) are truly mouth-watering. Perhaps one day I can afford them.
