Hello fellow SFers. I unfortunately had a bad sporting mishap this week and broke my left ankle in several places and dislocated it, requiring surgery. I tell you this not to elicit pity, though that certainly would be lovely, but rather to see if any of you have experienced this injury or something similar and how it affected your footwear. I am worried that my shoes will no longer fit me properly and I will be relegated to gunboats in order to accommodate the metal...
To me, it all sort of distills down to this one sentence: find your personal style and don't get suckered into SF groupthink. There are obviously some amazingly well attired gentlemen on here, and many of them have their unique style, and sadly, some try to push that as the look onto people. I see many new members accepting this advice like gospel without so much as questioning the advice giver. It's about identifying needs and finding the best options. Don't be a pig...
Amazing writeup. Would also love to see d'Avenza on the list, but with its sale to Cucinelli, I'm not sure how much longer we're actually going to HAVE a d'Avenza
Unsolicited and unaffiliated plug for the Persol-MOdel 2990-S 95/83 50/19 140 2F Light Green lens. I own them and absolutely love them. I've had mine for about a year, and thus far they have proven to be durable and withstand heavy use and heavy travel.
I assume that the description is pretty self-explanatory. I have $30 (one $15, one $10, one $5) in Starbucks gift cards that I am never going to use because I don't drink caffeine. My first preference is to trade them for either another gift card that you won't use, or something else that you might have lying around. I'm pretty open minded. I will also sell them for $25. I can't see myself going much lower as I can always re-gift them if necessary. I figure that the SF...
For anyone in the Philadelphia metro area, there is a GORGEOUS vicuna Kiton sport coat size 52 for $2000 at Last Call at Franklin Mills. I contemplated buying it to flip it, but I just didn't want to. I think there is a coupon going around for a percentage off.
I inherited 14 vintage suits/sport coats, none of which are close to my size, thus they are all available for sale to you. I am happy to provide more information, more photos, and measurements upon request. I am also amiable to trading these items; please note, though, that I am a 38L or 40L, so we likely won't watch up on size, but if you have anything else interesting, please let me know.I'm going to make this easy on you and me. Sport coats are a flat $35 and suits are...
Hi all, I have a second interview coming up in July, and I'd like to buy myself a new staple suit for it. I'd like to spend $600 or less, but I'm willing to push my budget for the right piece. My first choice is RLBL, but finding a staple piece at that price seems difficult/impossible, so I am open to others. My measurements: Shoulder: 18.25" P2P: 20.5 BOC: 32" Sl: 25"
Also, look for a more natural shoulder [one with less padding and structure]. If you carry your weight in the middle, which I suspect you do, having an overly structured suit can just make you look like a block (think NFL lineman at the draft). Others have said it correctly: slim and tailored, etc. are just marketing words to drive traffic and interest.
