Even in casual Tucson, the well-dressed corsair won't settle for just another grubby eye patch. Set a course for Franklin's, where you can find an entire alphabet of fine menswear, from Allen-Edmonds (spiffy dress shoes) to Zanella (impeccably tailored Italian slacks). The salesmen offer ample help with something more like generosity than pressure; while you're trying on a pair of pants in the dressing room, one of them will be assembling an array of coordinating dress shirts and ties to tempt you further. If you even look like you're just starting
to become a regular customer, they'll offer you extra little touches of service as classy as the clothing. No matter how you look when you straggle in, you'll soon feel immeasurably more elegant, even if you leave with only a pair of socks.
