I have driven a car made by Ford everyday for the past 15 years. My Dad worked there for 40 years and old habits are hard to break. Of couurse relative pricing is nice, too.
Love ties by Ermenegildo Zegna. Expensive, but once you wear one, you don't want anything else. Hand made and heavyweight, I laughee until I bought one. Don't pay Meiman Marcus prices ($140 plus), though. Ebay has them at less than 50% of that.
My girlfriend is hooked on MAC makeup and Coach.
Anybody here have brands they like?
