Actually, I picked one up on eBay last year for a whopping $47. It was vintage, which means it has details you don't find today, (such as tickng around the edge and velvet lined pockets). I had the tailor lengthen the sleeves so no cuff would be showing and replace the velvet collar which was a bit worn for a total cost, including purchase of $137. It looks amazing. I also have the BB cashmere overcoat and the Chesterfield is in another league altogether.

It bothers me that the J Crew mens suiting does not include the details that their women suits do such as pic stitching and surgeon's cuffs. Also, although the construction is the same, the men's suits are usually 1/3 more in cost. For the rest of it it's geared towards college kids or those that want to still dress like they are both in college and a kid. They don't even carry shoes you can wear in a non-casual business environment anymore. Their cashmere sweaters are...
What got me was the "older posts" where there's a pic and the simple comment "That Tail!' So Sart.

I keep a pair in my MG for longish trips which for me would be longer than an hour. For around the house I use slippers.
I'm sorry, but I wonder how many of the "no's" actually have had to wear them... First, given the health issues associated with wearing even moderately tight collars, (google it) expanders should be in everypne's furninshings box. Second, it's a matter of proportion. If we're talking about a small amount of tension on the expander it'll be un-noticable. If it's a lot, then it's time to move up in shirt size. In any event, it's often a simple matter of choosing,...
Hi, I'm looking at picking up some shirts and I was wondering what people thought of wearing white pencil-striped shirts with pinstripe suits. Is it too much? Especially with a striped tie? Most of my suits are blue or charcoal pinstripes and while I'm looking at black and/or navy pencil-striped shirts I don't want to get anything that I'll wind up not wearing. Thanks in Advance,

You may think it's affected, but for most it's only affected if the person wearing it is affected. It's a matter of perception, and you need to admit you bring your point of view to the argument. That said, the most elegant man I saw over the winter was wearing clesea...
