    I was on vacation recently in the UK. I walked by a Charles Tyrwhitt store in London and stopped in. Ended up walking out with 4 shirts.

    They were running a 4 for £100 deal which works out to a little over $30 per shirt after exchange rate.



    I was in Edinburgh for a day and picked up a Harris Tweed driver.

    Picked up a 50's Harris Tweed for $30 on Ebay. Spent more getting it tailored!

Not aware of any C&J carrying stores here in DC. I believe there's one, but I want to avoid it like the plague after reading about the people who run the place.
    Are you talking about SkyValet?

    I believe that may be it. Have you had experiences there?

    Couple more shots of my 1950's 3/2 roll harris tweed. Not bad for $30 on ebay and $45 for tailoring.

It's nice to be able to feel that comfortable going into town without looking like a schlub.

    After seeing it posted here, I also picked up one of these ll bean chamois popovers. It arrived yesterday. I love it. It definitely runs a little big, but I'm hoping I can get it to shrink up a little in the wash. Thanks to @JaimeGarcia bringing it to my attention. Now if we can only get it to cool of in Atlanta so I can actually wear it....

    I just picked up a slim Merino Wool Sweater from JCF as well as this year's blue tweed blazer with elbow-patches (featured in https://dappered.com/2016/08/autumna...-for-men-2016/) and was disappointed by both. First, the sweaters fit much baggier compared to last year with a lot of extra room in the arms (sleeves) and lower arm holes. Secondly, the blazer is no longer lined in 100% acetate but 100% polyester. Joe stated it was the same wool/nylon blend for the shell, which is correct, but was incorrect when stating it still used the 100% acetate lining. So an FYI to anyone thinking of buying the slim fit merino wool sweaters or the tweed/wool blazers from JCF this season.

    Unfortunately both will be returned
