    Trimalchio in Nantucket? The Embezzlement at Alden

    One has to suppose that the time Hajjar spends in prison will ensure that he's never in a position to commit a crime like this again. My guess is that no one will ever see the $60 million in restitution,... I have to feel for the family who owns Alden.

    It's TWEED Season!

    I have a dozen jackets and five suits from Hemrajani. It seems like a month or two past I received a email Divij might be coming to Portland. It might have been just an ad though. Looks as though Divij Hemrajani is kind of out on his own? Perhaps the firm's name has changed...

    The Three-piece Suit Thread

    I understand that fashion "Shoots" are staged to convey an image. Often times they seem to be over the top in terms of the clothing's cut and overall style. But I prefer images of men who are not models conducting their daily activities, but they are difficult to find. If it cannot be a...

    I love all of my Russell shoes and boots and have had positive experiences with Ralph Fabricius and everyone on staff. That being said Magnoli Clothiers web site* shoe offering, (the sole image that I could find) seem to be more "dress casual" and I find Russell's line-up to be much more on the...
