Anyone know if the venetian loafers have the same heal height as the beefroll pennies? They appear to be a little shorter on the venetians, but it could be a trick of the eyes...
What is the concensus on Jack Spade sunglasses... I had read(and heard from a sales rep) that they were made by Selima Optique who is a reputable and quality producer, but the shades on Jack Spade's site do not mention this. Specifically interested in this model... http://www.jackspade.com/bryant-sunglasses/BRYANTPS.html Anyone have this/seen in person, and would care to comment on the quality and style?
Couldn't find anything to use my 40% off coupon on, and ended up selecting this tie in red white and blue because I wanted to take advantage of discount: http://www.brooksbrothers.com/Textured-Sidewheeler-Stripe-Tie/MA01486,default,pd.html?dwvar_MA01486_Color=RED&contentpos=10 Did I make a bad choice? can't tell if the tie is nice and clean looking for spring/summer or too preppy...
Anyone know when the next $40 shirt + tie deal will be? Seems like there has been less promotions/discounts as of late. Is that just because they recently put out a new collection or is their strategy changing?
should have mentioned I am willing to buy a used watch. just looking for some ideas of decent chronos in that style/palette, and then plan to be patient with sales, ebay etc., so the watch could retail for higher than my price range.
In the market for a new dress watch, and looking to spend 3-400. Really like cream/tan faced watches, and looking for something similar to these: http://www.amazon.com/Ingersoll-IN1800CR-Richmond-Automatic-Cream/dp/B000L90B6S http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Rotary-Mens-Brown-Leather-Cream-face-Chronograph-Watch-Waterproof-Boxed-/140927255312 I like the brown leather, tan face and ideally looking for a chronograph. Any suggestions?
It may have been acryclic... I can get the shirt at a 20% discount, but it's still steep at 100$. I'm not so concerned with durability in the sense of whether the shirt will literally fall apart or not. I just worry about buying a 100$ shirt that, when put through the wash a few times, looks like crap because of the synthetic materials. This is an area I know almost nothing about, and don't think I own any shirts that aren't 100% cotton.
I thought donegal was common with wool, which is why I said I would have thought it would be 100% wool (especially at that price point). I checked it out in store the other day and it's like 20% cotton and the rest is polyester and some other synthetic material I can't recall. The collar is not too flimsy in my opinion, and my main concern is the material. Is the material a sign that the shirt won't hold up well after some wear and washes?
http://www.clubmonaco.com/product/index.jsp?productId=23294166 what do you all think of this shirt? I really like the style, but I'm a little concerned that it's made in China and out of polyester rather than 100% wool. Worried the thing will fall apart after a few washes...
Thanks for all of the helpful replies. Ac - it looks like you purchased the slim burgundy wool tie. There is also a plain burgundy tie that looks identical to the navy one. These ties will be free with a shirt... I just can't tell which ones I should buy, as I don't really want any of them specifically. Probably will pick up the burgundy or purple.
