    Priced Out of Trad Market

    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.

    If you could bring back one thing...

    so ... I thought this was going to go in a different direction. Here's my one thing: Manners. Without them there are no gentlemen, no matter how they are dressed. Cheers to you fine men.

    AAAC Informal Trad Thrift Store Exchange

    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...

    PSA O’Connell’s sale

    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...

    PSA O’Connell’s sale

    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. Would say this regarding the limited edition Trafalgar braces: beautiful, but for at least one pair of the three...

    Bob Iger

    So Bob Iger (Disney CEO) typically gets on CNBC/Bloomberg with a buttondown he always wears sans tie. I think the collar roll is fantastic ... and you would think Iger gets everything custom made. Closest thing to OTS ... Mercer?

    Thanks to all ... your kind words were touching. End of the day, I'm just Amory Blaine - a poser and dabbler in literature. Maybe one day I'll try a little harder. God's grace be with your families, Alex

    Thanks so much for reading ... as above, could it have been less? Well it was a long time ago. It was dear and dear to me. I'm pretty sure it was more than $100. 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...

    It was so extravagant - thick, and irish. Could it have been less? Perhaps; but not much. Thanks!

    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...

    Where to start an outfit?

    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...

    Bill's Khaki's Fabrics?

    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...

    i think the appropriate response might be "where do you live?".

    crazy sharp shoes dude. I guess a dancer would always want a Cadillac for his feet, though.
