• Melvin’s is awesome – slightly expensive, but awesome. A guy can wander in off the street and have a tape measure stretched around his waist in 60 seconds or less. They know what goes with what and exactly where in the store to find it. I remember being in a hurry and being able to purchase a new tailored suit complete with socks, shirt, shoes, and a tie in less than 15 minutes flat with the final alterations being ready on the same day. And the Allen Edmunds shoes last FOREVER – I’m still wearing a pair of wingtips that I bought in the early 80’s and they still look good.
