Men's belts should be worn with the free end pointing to the left, women's belts to the right. The line between shirt, belt buckle, fly is a gig line.John Doe beat me to it. Didn't read far enough.
I have a couple of episodes on the DVR, I will dfinitely watch at least one episode just for the costuming.
For those in the Baltimore area, Samuel Parker on Falls Road has all winter merch between %30 and %40 off. He has cashmere from Hawick, Polo and Pringles. Suits and sport coats from Polo (Blue lable), Hickey Freeman, and Samuelsohn plus pocket squares and ties from Drakes. I picked up a Hawick cashmere sweater (%30 off) and Drakes madder tie (%40 off)
I recommend the following threads: http://www.styleforum.net/t/85589/the-official-alden-thread/0_100 Amd http://www.styleforum.net/t/228153/the-official-shoe-care-thread-tutorials-photos-etc/0_100 The bottom line is to treat them like boots, wear them. Yes, shoe trees are a must (IMHO) for all shoes and boots. Wear them in the rain and slush. If they get wet, be sure to dry them properly. Use some sort of conditioner every once in a while, no need to polish them...
Grrrr, that's my size, but can't do it now, please someone kop!
Quick story about how awesome Jamison is. I was poking around his websight Friday night (21 December) and came across a sweater I had been eyeing. I put in in my basket, and decided to try a pair of the lambswool American cut trousers out too, so I put them in the shopping cart as well. I mulled a while, and decided to go for it, and placed my order. Jamison was in his shop wrapping things up for the holiday, so amazingly I received an e-mail from him about ten minutes...
I would be interested in a pair of those, if it makes any difference.
I would not have waited as long as it took to post.
Watch an episode or two of Boardwalk Empire. Pick a fit from the show that includes some elements you already own, then do a little shopping for remaining elements. One easy way to make a modern fit look at least a little 30's is to wear classics, navy or gray suit, solid blue shirt, etc. and throw on a good quality hat.
