I thought about that but my wife and I are headed to Chicago to see the Wolverines play at Northwestern on Saturday.Instead of making it out to NYC, maybe I'll start lobbying the StyleForum powers that be that the vendors need to be part of the renaissance of Detroit and should have a trunk show here. Or maybe open up a pop-up for the holidays?
Speaking of the Trunk Show... I seriously considered taking the day off of work tomorrow and flying out to NYC for it and then flying back to Detroit in the evening.
I too generally prefer a slightly larger lapel, but I don't think the Epaulet stuff is anywhere near as slim as some places have gotten over the past decade or so (I'm looking at you J. Crew!). I think the Epaulet stuff definitely will have a longer shelf life than many of the other suits and sportcoats I see these daysIn the end, I'll take what I can get, where I can get it. I can go get some very nice Southwick sportscoats with a wider lapel (and more of a "trad"...
Yes - they are the camel MTO Rudy from @Epaulet. I absolutely love them but I think I am going to take them to the tailor tomorrow and have them shortened just a tad.
Picked up my blue suede tassel loafers yesterday and couldn't resist some nice, bright red and blue houndstooth socks to go with them.
Very cool on so many levels! I don't know that I've seen a reverse chamois makeup lately that isn't awesome.
I'm 35 (for one more week anyway).My first pair of Alden was either the Cigar LWB or brown CXL Indy - I got them both about the same time about 4 and a half years ago. I quickly sold the Indy boots as I don't care for the shape of the TrueBalance last all that much. Since then I've added waaaaaayyyy too many Alden's to my collection. I need to get serious about taking some pictures and posting more for sale.
I got a big pull in mine like the second or third time I wore it but just decided to live with it , at least until the end of the winter anyway.
Just got a call that a batch of blue suede tassel loafers has arrived at my local retailer and my size was delivered. I'll be making a slight detour on the way home from the office this evening!
J. Press. I'm a sucker for the flap pocket.
