no tips on how to choose the right one other than wearing and trying them out?
ive stopped writing freelance and i was hired to be an understudy of the editor of a major magazine. i was told i have to wear a coat and tie, but i don't think i should be wearing power suits. what should i wear and how do i pull it off? any suggestions?
I have been wanting to get a casual hat. Maybe a straw pork pie, a driver cap...even a newsboy. Any tips on picking a shape or style for different shaped heads? Smaller brims for smaller features/narrower bodies, any kind of rules of thumb about that?
no on the tailors??

And yes, side gussets. sorry, please bear with me. hand stitching? as in not using a sewing machine? and what's the actual use of side gussets? are there any yokes that help with the fit of a shirt?

im thinking of getting a bespoke shirt, and want to know what details i should really look for. looking around these forums, a couple of notables are: removable collar stays hand sewn buttonholes split yokes i know those arent the only ones, but i dont know what else.... so what else am i missing?
