    This sounds like the wording of a community chest card.

    I'd probably commission a suit from Despos. Then again, I don't need to wear a suit that often and already own five, so I don't value quantity as much anymore.

    If you are talking about Paul Stuart bespoke then that, otherwise the one suit option and I would go to Italy to get it made.

    I rarely need to wear a suit to work and I have enough non-work suits.

    NYC is right up the street, and I hear Christian Garcia in FL is the real deal.

    I have quantity of suits. Would waiting for a Seville Row or Naples tailor to come to NYC count as a 1,000 mile radius?

    So, is the person who voted for Sears being a wise guy...or does he want a lot of disposable suits?

    I was just wondering that. And does he want to risk the wrath of SF by admitting who he is?

    I am guessing not...unless he is like a factory boss and can't risk quality suits at work.

    It would take courage to admit owning, let alone wanting, a Sears suit on here. I asked about the longevity ofa JCP tie in the quick answer thread and was resoundingly ignored. Though, we are in Seattle, so I picked up this guy as per your advice. It's the store brand, so was only $50. The JCP tie was gold with narrower navy stripes for $17, but I realized I would go back and buy this one later anyway, and end up spending $67.[​IMG]

    20 suits from Sears. I've been needing rags for my gun cleaning kit.
