I have reservations at a "fancy" restaurant tonight for valentines day. I wear a suit to work every day, but am still young enough to not be comfortable with the etiquette. Am I supposed to wear my suit jacket while eating, or should I take it off?
Given the context, any prudent individual would have queued in to the fact that I was unknowledgeable with regards to suits and suit care. When asked my jacket size I responded, "I don't know." That should have been a pretty good giveaway.
I never blamed anybody for me ironing my suit. I simply brought up the idea that when you buy a suit of quality, the sales people should probably offer a higher degree of customer service than a place of business that sells lesser quality garments. Not everyone has years and years of suit care knowledge. All it says on the tag is dry clean only... Why would I think its harmful to iron clothing if I otherwise had no prior knowledge? Not sure why I would think that, as...
Thanks for all of the good insight. You would think that the staff at Brooks Brothers might mention that to me, seeing as I am 24 and might appear less than well-seasoned in suit care. Oh well, you live and your learn! Is an old t-shirt suitable to use as a press cloth, or would you recommend purchasing a specialty product?
I recently purchased my first suits and made the mistake of ironing one of them, and now it is shiny... It wasn't a cheap suit either. Does anyone know if this particular product is good for pressing suits without giving them the unsightly sheen yielded by metal irons?
These seem to get good reviews, and I like the styling. Any opinions? One review said they are too casual to wear with a suit???
Yeah, thats what I figured judging solely on price. I would not like to spend more than $300. I do realize that it is probably better to invest in a quality pair of shoes, but they are quite expensive for someone making 45k a year. I just started my first job out of college, and I need shoes and suits! I have a pair of the Allen Edmonds Strand. Does anyone have any knowledge on how these two shoes might compare to eachother?
I recently started my first job out of college, and am required to wear suits every day. I made the mistake of buying a black suit, and my only other suit is a navy pinstripe. I am looking to buy new suits, but my major qualm is long rise pants and jackets with low arm holes. Anyways, I want to wear tweed for the fall and winter, but I feel as though I need to transition into those. How can I improve my wardrobe to achieve this?
Papa Johns peperoni pizza... Don't ask me why.
