I think your coat's too short. Looks great otherwise.
A few years ago, I picked up two pair of shoes in the Plaza last, extended combat sole from Alden of Carmel. One pair is in brown calf, which pairs well with khakis, grey dress pants, and jeans. I have gotten great use from them. The other pair has me stumped: black shell cordovan. Any suggestions for pairing them up? Is it possible to have them re-soled to get rid of the extended sole and make them more dress appropriate?
Very trim coat, flat front pants. Not as boxy as the HF Madison; fit is more like a E. Zegna I own. Can't remember what the tag said exactly, except that it was union made in the USA.
These have the Union Made in USA tags, which are identical to those found in my Hickey Freeman suits. Normally tagged at $1200.
Fabric is Ermenegildo Zegna. Who makes 'em?
Try Paul Stuart. www.paulstuart.com

Better fabric (2 ply) irons more easily than cheaper fabric. Ironing a shirt is like shaving. It's a skill every man should have. Get a decent iron with good steam output. Don't use starch, use Magic Sizing made by Faultless. It's available at the grocery store. Practice a bit, and you will do a better job than the dry cleaner, and it shouldn't take you more than 5 minutes to iron a shirt. No more creases in barrel cuffs when they are ironed flat. Your...

Apparently a place in my town called DC Athletic Inc. carries them so I can check them out for myself. I left a message asking them to call me back about what colours and sizes they have since they weren't there. Hopefully this'll work out for me. Then I wish my fellow Gator good luck!
