    We wants the ring first!
    No, but we can get a nice grey suit without the Mrs. finding out!
    No! She'll find out and when she does, she will be very very angry!
    No, my precious. She will never know that you bought a $3k Isaia suit.
    No! It's not right! The ring is more precious to us!
    No, my precious. The suit is more precious to us.

    When I have a big project or something I usually do 6 shot espresso straight in the morning and I do another 6 shots in the afternoon. Keeps me focused and then I just burn out and get a migraine.

    6 shot espresso and I would be knocked out (sleeping).

    Works for me. Get it.

    I was thinking perhaps halfway between the two for the shade, and a pinstripe or chalk stripe. You're an accountant. Don't be afraid to dress like a good one. Also, I don't like those suits...maybe they just don't fit the model that well.

    Also, forget about the labels for a while, will you? This is how you got into that Neiman Marcus tie binge in the first place. Don't spend $3k on a suit because you like the name. Butch said earlier in this thread that his suits cost him about $250. Forget the labels, check the sales, find something from wherever that fits and flatters you and buy three for a grand! Or one.

    Jesus, I cant imagine spending $3.2k on a suit at retail.

    Noodles, what happened to your wifes concerns? She only cares if you spend more on ties? :lol:

    Anyone know where I can get a nice navy coat that I don't need to sell a kidney for? Wool/cashmere under $1000 in theory. 42l? I'm trying to find some end of season closeout deals or something.
