    Benson & Clegg in Washington

    I've since learned they will be giving away a made to measure sports jacket that evening and have other specials on goods. Might be worth the stop by if you're in the D.C. area.

    Benson & Clegg in Washington

    A political friend of mine sent me an invitation for a reception he's part of next week, the 14th, in Washington. Apparently, it's raising money for a scholarship fund. Benson & Clegg is participating with a trunk show. It looks like it's a Republican audience. I won't be going because it'd...

    Jaeger clothes

    I didn't mean to write was in the past tense. I should have wrote is. What has changed? They appear a little bit more fashionable now, but the shirts aren't fused, as an example. The suits are probably no different than any half-canvassed, off-the-peg brand, to be frank. However, I've always...

    Bookster Praise

    Not bad, sir. The jacket does, however, appear to be a tad too short. I would also humbly suggest a two-button jacket in the future. You may also want to see about a tailor removing some of the excess cloth (I don't know the precise tailoring term) in the back, near the shoulders. I also think...

    Jaeger clothes

    That's interesting because I've always thought the consensus was that T.M. Lewin was superior to Charles Tyrwhitt.

    Bookster's new lounge jacket?

    Quite nice. I'm tempted to buy one, but I'd want no padding whatsoever.

    Jaeger clothes

    So where does it fall between the likes of Austin Reed, T.M. Lewin, Charles Tyrwhitt and the other off-the-peg U.K. clothing brands?

    Airport Security and Trad

    Wear loafers, put all the pens and coins in your briefcase along with your mobile telephone, don't wear a belt and be prepared to take your jacket off.

    It's here, the new J Press.

    In my opinion, I don't see this version of J. Press lasting more than a year or two. If Rugby Ralph Lauren couldn't succeed, I don't think this will.

    What's even more interesting is the demographics of emigrants from the British Isles to America. Are they English-Americans, British-Americans, Irish-Americans, Scottish-Americans, Welsh-Americans? From what I understand of demography, the oldest bunch of Americans, the English-Americans who...

    Macy's Cashmere Sweaters

    I buy one or two every year. Often, they're marked down to $10 come late February -- a far cry from the $100-ish price of Black Friday. They aren't a bad sweater. I buy two or three cheaper cashmere sweaters (I refuse to pay over $45). I know I could get much better quality, but I wear the...

    30% off at Andover Shop...

    It can't be a true sack without being a 3/2 roll, no?

    It's here, the new J Press.

    The prices are higher than mainline J. Press!

    I need a dinner jacket ensemble
