Not nearly as accomplished, Eagle - but of a feather. However once I fell to the siren song of O'Connell's, since they are only 25 minutes away and created the great sin of my life: paying full retail.
Even typing it feels dirty. But like many of the fallen at least I only did it once.
Just a general statement about Gamma ...
* My shirt arrived extremely quickly.
* It was in good form (crisp, clean, no odor)
* It came with 2 lagniappes, the form of very nice ties. Completely unexpected, unnecessary and they brightened an otherwise disappointing day.
Thank you kind sir. You...
O'Connell's Lambswool Donegal Tweed - charcoal gray, and light brown.
O'Connell's Cotton Twill - Khaki, Blue.
All plain front, no cuff.
All, just outstanding. The tweed trousers are so luxurious you'd find yourself just rubbing the clothing between your fingers. The 8.4 ounce twill also just...
I dropped a fair amount of coin there this past winter, couldn't be happier with the quality overall. Slacks and dress pants, a tweed vest, braces. I can't wait to go back again.

Since you asked ... here comes TMI.
The girl was the first love of my life; my first partner, the first time we were away from home...
1975, Christmas season and my girlfriend's dad brings us into Brooks Brothers in Manhattan. I had never been in men's store of that sort and was the typical college freshman - starving and poor.
He saw me staring with an open mouth at a strawberry pink, cable sweater - a stunning price of $150...
an intriguing thread and good thoughtful answers.
On occasion I use the audience - which is sort of like the affair, but different, isn't it? It sounds terrible but I try to figure out the lay of the land and step my game up just a quarter tad.
I don't need to be screaming, a preacher of...
You see, I live near Buffalo NY - so I have pretty much the opposite life and I am highly reactive to temperatures. I don't think there really is anything that is "year-round".
When the weather is extreme for extended periods (Buffalo, December 10 to March 1) or DC (June 15 to September 1?) I...
