    Brooks Brothers Christmas Corduroys

    After last Christmas, I purchased a pair of BB cords that were embroidered with their signature pig wearing a santa cap. They were $38 and figured I would wear them this Christmas. The weather report for New Jersey on Christmas day is sunny and 60+ degrees. UGH!

    Johnny Carson Suits

    Anyone remember Johnny Carson suits? I owned several, probably 3-4, back in the late 1970's and early 1980's. They were suit separates with a vest and pretty sure they retailed for $99.00. Not sure what size I was back then, but they fit me like a glove and wore them right off the rack.

    Anyone remove elbow patches from a tweed sport jacket?

    I'm looking at a couple of tweed jackets on EBay that have elbow patches and I'm not a big fan. Has anyone removed the patches? If so, was it visible? Could you see a difference in the fabric where the patch was? Thanks--
