Purple Label, Black Label, and Rugby all have very defined aesthetics and levels of quality. Their target demographics are very clearly...
Grant model is awesome. I take the same size in it as all other polo models. It is a much softer construction overall, and fits slimmer in the body OTR.
In before story (of dubious authenticity and replicability) of some dude being upgraded to first class on a flight due to being well dressed.
If I were to do it, I'd do it in black shell as opposed to calf.

It's possible in certain instances, but you probably need to have a better developed eye for proportion and balance before you'll know.
I remember having the suede Peal chukkas in my cart two years ago for $159, about to check out, decided to wait on it, and then lost out. Probably the only item I've regretted not purchasing.
I remember the difference between seeing the Aldens in person and on my feet vs. in pics--it's a world of difference. Barrie-lasted shoes always look a million times better on the foot than in a photoshoot (even the PTBs, which tend to look the blobbiest), whereas you often observe the opposite with elongated, overly sleek chisel toed shoes that many times look better in pictures than on the feet and in the context of an outfit. That, and those who complain about them...

I basically go straight from lats to hips. From powerlifting my chest is 43 inches and my waist 2 inches above my navel is 31 inches. I also have a fairly large butt and...
The J. Crew one has obviously been set up and pinned very carefully on the mannequin, while as others have mentioned, Yoox has a tendency to make even the nicest garment look like a piece of crap. I'm generally a fan of fly fronts on overcoats, and the styling on the J. Crew one is nice, save for the shorter length.
