    Also does anyone know about Alain figaret shirts? I found about 15 of them. Are they worth picking up?

    Thanks. Good info.

    I've been waiting to see if they'll get some new AEs esp. dark for business wear. They seem to have an abundance of "chili" colored AEs.

    What size? Dibs if it's a 16.5 and not a bizzare color/pattern.

    Yeah, their AE selection is pretty limited. The do have the Hinsdales and Hales in black, at least at Potomac Mills.

    The term 'grail' is thrown around a lot here...

    Left behind a Charvet myself today, the collar had a little tear in it that could've easily been repaired. Starting to think about going back for it -_-. Also finally got some god.damn. pants. Just some basic BBs but at least this pair can fill a gaping hole for my casual wear for a bit until I can get some stuff moved.

    I've gotten a lot of interest in the Charvet, but from my experience, damaged stuff doesn't go very far. I generally only pick stuff up in excellent+ condition.

    I'd say that counts as a grail find. :nodding:

    Nice find! You'll have no problem finding that beauty a home as I know a bunch of guys (myself included) who that would fit. Sadly my closet is at max. capacity. Need to thin down the herd.

    Are you guys pissed at me for flooding the thread with crap like Brioni and Oxxford?

    I really thought the Bijan was a big deal [​IMG]
