It could be a very innovative product/idea or it could merely be an affordable version of an existing high-price product.

I always have difficulty in finding high-end dress shoes with rubber sole for winter.

I think pocket squares in general are extremely over-priced (US$70-US$100+) and I'd like to see more affordable ones in the marketplace.

C&J rubber soles seem pretty ok so far for trudging around in the rain. Never tried with snow though.

I've never spent more than $30 on a PS


I'd like to see some cheaper and more simple tie clips, like the swatch of the tie clip world. All the ones I see these days are too over the top.

Codpieces in decorative colors, shapes, and textures designed to get girls to want to touch it like a soft sweater or a silk shirt.

Put me down for a shirt that has a presentable hem, so that when worn untucked underneath a suit jacket it doesn't just look like you're wearing it untucked underneath a suit jacket.
Wait a minute, I think I'll invent that. (Pleeez don't tell Glennie.)
1. Split the side seams up to the waist...
2. ...allowing the back to be tucked-in while the front hangs free.
3. Huh?
4. Hold on a minute, will ya?
5. Then the front tails are hemmed as vees, like the front of a vest/waistcoat.
6. Slight stiffener is added as backing to the front tails.
7. Do you have RL's number?​

I would like to see more flower brooches (what is the real name of this?) specially designed for men at affordable prices.

Fitted sweaters. You can't have a sweater altered, so it would be nice to have more slim fit sweaters in good fabrics. Uniqlo is not slim enough.

Overcoats in plaids and checks. These are hard to find.

Also, suits with roped "pagoda" shoulders, super-wide lapels, and hourglass cuts at the H&M pricepoint.

For fitted sweaters, give Piombo a go.

A good looking hat that you can wear in the rain without having to worry about the brim or crown getting ruined afterwards. That and hat check girls.

It's hard finding brightly colored socks aren't usually done by the designers that would sell them for $30+ a pair.
