 Jacket looks great kolecho, congrats. I might get slapped for this but I think it looks much better than the -mostly- overrated Rubinacci stuff. My point of view is that Rubinacci is not as terrible as some folks here say, it's just tremendously overpriced.
I wear my Mercers with a jacket and no tie. Sometimes I'll wear my Panta ties with them. There you have it.Sugar, I don't like collar stays because if you need them you might as well wear a stiffer collar (which I kinda hate, too). But that's just me... Perhaps it's just that cardboard like collars remind me of the cheaper department store garbage.
I didn't see many well dressed people in Naples, either. Guess they were all in court, as Marco said.
I close them with staples after buying, because that weak white thread is not resistant enough. Also, my custom jackets have a Velcro lining that keeps them fixed to flannel shirts; I can therefore raise my arms without the jacket riding up. Seriously, who said you should leave the pockets closed?
lol, I guess. BTW, I hate non-buttoned collars with a coat and no tie, unless they are soft and sporty. I might be crazy as well. And whomever invented collar stays should have been kicked in the nuts. Multiple times. Many times. I'd still be kicking him today if he was alive. There's my take
YYes, some advice is useful even though it might act as advertisement at the same time. But it's not always that easy to differentiate good advice from bad advice, specially if you're a beginner.
OCBD with no tie and sport coat is bad? Has the world gone mad or something?
 This x1000, Foo. It's not just SF. It's thousands of blogs spewing nonsense because they're biased towards certain brands, or tailors. They get paid by them or get freebies, of course. SF is not the most blatant example of this unfortunate situation, but still. Out of all those blogs there are some which are more useful (Put This On comes to mind), and others which are just billboards. When trying to learn and refine my own taste, I'd rather trust those who are tasteful,...
