    Sadly, Cinnibon has slipped.

    I'm currently on a diet ... I wouldn't know. It's either loose seven to ten pounds ... or put the wardrobe on eBay.

    I was so looking forward to the day I might enjoy one of their Cinnabonbons ... and now ... I find there is no rainbow at the end of my pot of gold.

    Eton (shirts). I now have 10 although they are only a few weeks old. I don't know how they will stand the test of time.

    Good luck. I had to replace all of the buttons on each of my Eton shirts. Shirts are great but the buttons cracked very quickly at the laundry.

    Buttons can be replaced....but it would be disappointing.

    I have to agree with PaoloM on the Brioni recommendation. My Brioni suits have held up very well.

    Every piece I buy from Cucinelli, but every lives up to my high quality standards, even though I've heard stories to the contrary.
