    Well I am on my New York vacation with my daughter and we are walking down Fifth Ave. toward FAO Schwartz, when I spot out of the corner of my eye, Domenico Vacca ! Well I was in heaven! I loved the shoes, there was a sale on summer clothing and I was told by a great salesman, (Peter, I forget, asian looking guythough) to try on a lightweight cotton, almost mesh like, Polo. Well this is the softest, lightest cotton I have ever felt. So I sprung for $197 for a Polo, and to my embarassment I left the hotel quickly without my wallet or credit cards! This is after I tried on and said I would wear the new shirt out too! So I checked my pockets for cash and luckily I grabbed a few hundred for incindentals which my daughter would undoubtedly want/need. I think I took $400 and after a build a bear stop, a Trump Tower ice cream stop, an american girl stop, and a few others i forget, I had $180 left. So I counted out $180 the shirt was $240 before 30% off sale, so @ $197 with tax. The great salesman understood my dilemma and told me not to worry about it $180 was fine! So all in all a really, really great store with gorgeous clothing,(a zip up 2 sided pink/grey cashmere sweatshirt was on my list and I came very close, but even after sale deductions it was $1200, a little much, but worth every penny!) So great store, great stuff and great staff! Bergdorfs here I come!

    Somehow I'm vaguely reminded of "Polos and Lacoste" by Pastor Troy.

    Anyway, have fun shopping.

    $180 for a cotton polo! He must be a truly great salesman indeed.

    Based on the many D. Vacca slacks that were at Filene's Basment in DC about 3 months ago, there are at least two different makers of their slacks. Some clearly appeared to be made by Incotex, based on the interiors. Others -- I couldn't tell who the maker was. The more casual pairs seemed to be Incotex whereas the unknown maker seemed to be dressier slacks. By the way, I have a pair of Attolini odd slacks and I didn't see any comparisons indicating that the DV slacks were made by Attolini.
    I ended up buying a bunch of DV Bermuda shorts. I would have sprung for some slacks but found them too narrow/slim-fitting, even in my size. I haven't been wowed by the construction quality of the shorts -- of the 4 pairs I bought, one pair has had the zipper break come unstitched (never seem that happen before) and in another the side-hem has come unstitched in one spot. On the other hand, the fabrics are fantastic and entirely unique.

    That was a nice gesture. I have been in small cafes where they won't sell you somthing worth $2.50 because you didn't have 10 cents.
