Black and cream do not go together well at all. Really, the entire outfit looks like a mess. Switch to gray chinos or slacks (corduroy in this weather is weird anyway), or keep the pants but switch to brown shoes and belt. And a shirt that isn't black.
Why would gold buttons make somebody want to wear the jacket less? I really don't understand what people have against traditional blazers...I have a 3 roll 2 navy blazer in a fabric like that, with gold buttons. It's one of my favorite jackets. I say go for it, though I would also cut off that patch.
What? That's comically wrong. Plenty of Burberry stuff has a "Burberrys" logo. Just means it's older, though the change where they dropped the s is still pretty recent. The vast, vast majority of vintage Burberry stuff out there is going to be labeled "Burberrys".And yes, his friend is an idiot. Not everything is going to have the check, and the check is very common on fake stuff anyway. And no fake is going to have those coded order tags. Hell, if you contact Burberry,...
Yeah- twill. Names like that are generally marketing for one brand's specific choice of fabric. I suspect that they're trying to imply that it's a fairly wrinkle resistant twill by using 'commuter'. Go to a good store and ask to try on a few twill shirts. If you give a price range, people here can make some pretty good suggestions.
Plymouth makes a nice martini, as does Hendricks.IMO, in terms of gin, it's good to keep a variety around. Some are great all rounders, some are specialists with very distinct and unique flavors. Hendricks falls into the latter camp, but that doesn't make it lesser than something like a Bombay that's pretty firmly in the former camp. It just makes it different. If you're only going to have one gin around, I probably wouldn't go for a Hendricks type deal, I'd go for a...
Such as pink linen. I had a meeting (granted, not a high stakes anything, just kind of a get to know you) with one of the better known lawyers in the city I was in at the time. He showed up in madras shorts, a pink linen shirt, and flip flops. Having your name on the building helps. His firm wasn't particularly conservative, but still.
I'm not sure. It was one of those really small ones they sell for snacking. A friend of mind left it here, oranges aren't something I really buy. Edit: Clementines maybe?
I think I've finally found a blood and orange recipe I really like. Warning, as I've made it it's a tad oversized. Size down as appropriate. Juice of half a small (size of a large lemonish) orange, fresh squeezed. Comes to a little less than an ounce of juice. 1 oz Maraschino 1 oz Sweet Vermouth 1.5 oz smoky blended scotch Brandied cherry (homemade ) Normally I'm lazy with orange juice in cocktails, but I think the fresh squeezed did make a difference, and using...
It's a don't because with brass buttons, it becomes a blazer, a distinct and iconic garment with its own interesting history. Simply, the reason is that blazers have never been worn as suits, and are an iconic look in themselves.If you want a navy suit, wear a navy suit. Just skip the gold buttons.
Boat shoes, camp mocs, sneakers. Venetian loafers aren't a bad choice either, but I don't like shiny leather with shorts. Suede or more casual oiled leathers, or canvas.
