    I purchased my first Etro shirt today at Marios in Portland, Oregon.  I thought it was a pretty nice place, and would recommend it to anyone in the Portland area.  Especially since Portland is not that much of a fashion city, so it is most likely the place to go.  Anyhow, I purchased a nice Etro shirt there, and I was planning on wearing it untucked from my trousers.  Unfortunately, the shirt tail is a tad bit long.  Does anyone know if it is pretty easy to shorten the shirt tail?  And by how much can it be shortened? I was thinking I should just take it back to them and have them shorten it, as I am not sure of any good tailors in town near my university, and I don't want just anyone to do it.

    Why not just wear it properly and tuck it in?

    I haven't been into Mario's since they moved into their new space on Broadway. I visit their store here in Seattle occasionally,and receive their magazine,which detailed the Grand Opening in Portland.

    How did you like their selection?

    In response to Vero, yes, I will wear it tucked in.  I was just hoping I could wear it tucked out of my trousers on occasion for a more casual look.  As far as Mario's selection, I thought they had a pretty good selection, especially after my first visit to them a year and a half ago when they were in this small unit inside this vacant mall.  Their new location has two floors; the mens is on the first and the womens is on the second.  They seem to primarily stock alot of Zegna, but they also have collections from Armani, Loro Piana, Hugo Boss, Ted Baker, Dolce and Gabbana, John Varvatos, Etro, Kiton and Borelli.  Their selection of Etro was very limited, the Neiman Marcus back at home in San Francisco had a much better selection.  I asked the salesman if they had Paul Smith, and he said they were going to be carrying it starting in the fall.  I would be curious to check out their boutique in Seattle.  Additionally, they had some really nice Hermes luggage, and some excellent shaving and grooming care products from Aqua di Parma, Creed, Santa Maria Nouvella, Phillp B, Geo F and Trumpers.
