    i'm thankful for this forum, as it has given me a place to discuss the clothes that i like and to discover new clothes as well. most of my friends dress like slobs, or do all their shopping at banana republic/armani exchange because it's safe. it's great to have a place to discuss men's clothes.

    i'm also thankful for every article of clothing i have.
    have a safe thanksgiving everyone.

    Amen to that.

    Amen to that, too. If the shoes aren't my undoing, the Borrelli shirts certainly will be.

    I remember buying my first suit, it was 1987 or 1988 and I just started working at a bank as a teller and needed a suit. I was 21 and still living under the close eye of my parents. On that day, I headed out to Woodies to pick out a suit with my mother. I eventually found one I like and took it up to the counter to get a few shirts and ties. I salesman comment on my selection say it was one of their best suits (what did I know). And, off I went. A few days later, after I had retrieved the suit after alteration had been completed I was talking to my (at the time) girlfriend and mention that I had bought a suit. She asked me who the designer was, not knowing much more then I liked the was the suit looked I had to check inside the jacket, the tag sewed inside said MANI by Giorgio Armani. I told her, she being much more fashion savvy then I, went silent for a few second and then ask me when she was going to get to see me wearing it.

    Anyway I'll post pic of the two MANI suit I have laying around(both of which do not fit) when I get a chance.
