    New Three Button Sack Suit

    Hello. It's been a while since I've visited. I hope everyone is well. For the first time in a long time I'm in the market for a new suit. I am replacing a 35 year old olive green three button sack suit. Any suggestions on what stores to try to find one? It appears that Joe Banks and Brooks...

    Three Button Sack Suit at Bargain Prices

    Hello. I find myself in need of new suits. I strongly prefer the traditional three button sack suit. Unfortunately the need for a new suit or two comes at an inconvenient time economically. Any leads on where to find such traditional suits at affordable prices? Thanks!

    Three Button Traditional Suits - Where to Buy?

    Hello. I need to buy some new suits for the fall. I prefer the traditional three button "sack" style - at least I think that's what it's called. JosABank no longer sells them apparently. Other than Brooks Brothers, where else can I find them? Thanks.

    Inexpensive Dress Pants / Shirts

    Hello. I seem to wear out my dress pants and shirts rather quickly. Can anyone recommend a good source for dress pants and shirts that are decent but inexpensive? Say pants under $50 and shirts under $30? Or does such an outlet just not exist? Thanks.

    Splitting Shirt Collars

    Thanks all. The last time I flipped collars they split again very quickly. So, I'll just keep these for casual wear.

    Splitting Shirt Collars

    Hmmm. I had not thought of that.

    Splitting Shirt Collars

    They are cleaned commercially. Most are several years old. And, yes, I wear bowties. Why would that be relevant? Thanks.

    Splitting Shirt Collars

    Here are two photos. One is collar spread open and the other is the collar closed. Come to think of it, they are all Brooks Brothers.

    Splitting Shirt Collars

    Of late, three or four of my dress shirt collars have split. Each has split on the part of the collar in the middle just behind the neck. Granted, age, wear and tear all take part of the blame. But so many at more or less the same time. Could something be amiss that I am overlooking? Thanks.

    London Fog Trench Coat - Khaki, single breast, no belt

    I need to replace my 30+ year old London Fog Trench Coat; however, searching around the internet I cannot find a similar style: single breast, khaki, no belt. Anyone know where I might find one at a reasonable (i.e., lower end) price? From reviewing the London Fog website it appears that they...

    grooming Switching Razors: Blade to Electric

    I have a heavy beard and enjoy the closeness of shaving with a razor blade. Currently, I use the Fusion by Gilette. For various reasons, I am thinking of switching to an electric razor. I know little about them except that when I used them in the past they provided nowhere near the close shave I...

    Jos A Bank Sale and Sales in General

    Jos A Bank is running another one of their non-stop sales events. I need some new basics: shirts, sockes, etc., but not necessarily right now. Do you think there will be better sales after Christmas? (I know. Silly question.)
