    +1. Whenever I see a post by Xenos, I prepare myself for jealousy.
    A good thing to do if you have the time. I did it a few weeks back. Saw the new Zanella platinum waistband style, that Brioni changed their signature "Made in Italy" label, drooled over some pure cashmere Kitons and oogled at the Isaias.

    Phoenix/Scottsdale area has a lot of $$$. You might just want to figure out which stores are biggest and hope the larger volume works to your advantage.

    Hickey-Freeman Collection line is supposed to be fully-canvassed. It's the Hickey-Freeman Ltd. line that is half-canvassed.

    I hit a couple of stores today and found my first thrift store Loro Piana shirt. It's a 15.75" so it's available.

    Also, found this really cool Harris Tweed

    I have no idea who made it. Has anyone ever seen this tag or button before?

    Speaking of Marshalls, there are a bunch of solid color (black, navy, white, cream) Dior Homme skinny ties at the Marshalls around here that I'd be willing to proxy if anyone is looking.

    Your prayers were answered, Andro. Found the rarest of all birds today - 2 pair of zanella flat front khaki dress pants, one 32x29, the other 36x29, both with about 2" to add in length. Of course, when I measured the larger ones I noticed two small holes. I blame the lack of pleats. Also found an olive Donegal tweed sportcoat that smelled like pot. All available.

    $49.99. There is also a couple pair of Diesel Black Gold clip-on leather suspenders for the same price.

    Saks Off Fifth down the road from me is selling Dior skinny ties at $49.99 as well. If that price includes allowance for the More card, could take a further 20% off. But I am thinking that is sale price, and More card would not give a further reduction.
