    Your most prized possessions?

    Let's say your house is burning down (God forbid) and you have only 30 seconds to grab 3 sartorial items before you run out the door. This is going to be tough. What would be your 3?

    Tom James (made in Chile) suits

    I'm aware that this is the entry level suit for the Tom James brand. If anyone has any experience, I would appreciate some input on quality of fabric they use. I would guess that the entry level suits are also fused as well?
