    The first time someone tells me "that's what everybody wears these days," I'm going to stare at them until they apologize and walk away from me in shame.

    I think those ties would avg about $20. Obviously, the RLPLs will fetch more, and the emblematic polo's will fetch less

    I had a similar experience at SS. I do not know what the heck these people know. I took my friends to get suits at suits and make sure they end up with SF approved suits. This dummie when talking about hemming the pants said, you should go short so that there is no break and that it is a bit higher because that is the trend now. I grab the dummie by the neck (not literally) and told her to give my friend a slight break and no clown pants.

    You're are cruel man. LOL

    F.U.

    I finally am listening and returned the suit from NMWA. I am waiting for a 40R. It took me a while but I think I am there.

    Yes. The colour was really not for me. Everyone was telling me that it didn't go with my complexion. If you're thinking wtf is he talking about? Then you don't know what it is like to be a Korean. [​IMG]

    Didn't your wife make a collage of how she liked you to dress that basically existed out of monochromatic looks with grey suits like the zegna? Or were those lighter grey suits?

    Forget the name. (I know people couldn't care any less).
    Your thoughts on the belt? My other Zegna belt had too much sheen to it.

    I don't like the branding, but it looks like a pretty standard belt to me, i.e. there's nothing wrong with it.
