Getting ready to place my first order and am just curious what width most of you folks are ordering. For context, if it matters, I'm a 47-year old finance professional and am assuming 3.5" is an appropriate, middle-of-the-road width. Thoughts?
Recently I have purchased a couple of pair of plain front wool trousers that I ended up taking to two different tailors to have hemmed. In both cases I asked for just a slight break with no cuff, and in both cases the tailor told me I should angle the hemline so that the back (towards the heel of the shoe) is slightly longer. It seems to me that on pants with virtually no break the hemline is straight, which makes sense, but I'm wondering what the thoughts are on the...
So I'm at the point where I'd like to expand my modest Hober collection that currently consists of just a dark navy grossa and a burgandy grenadine grossa. I'm thinking of adding 3 more with my next order and am looking for opinions as to what should be included to begin to round out my Hober starter kit. It seems to me that the #3 Powder Blue & Brown Stripes on Midnight Blue Grenadine Gross is obligatory, so what else falls into the "must have" category? Thanks in...
Can someone clarify the differences between Persol 2747, 2803, and 2761? I've tried them on in different places at different times but never all at once so the differences are indiscernible to me. I know the sizing is slightly different but that's all I can tell. Thanks in advance.
In ascending order of slimness, BB suits go Madison, Fitzgerald, Regent, and Milano. Can't help with the rest of our question.
Any idea what brand of suits David Muir of ABC News wears? I always like the look and the fit.
Of the 2 trousers options, definitely go with the grey, and I'd prefer a brown shoe.
I've got a pair of Wolverine 1000 Mile boots (love them) and use Venetian Shoe Cream, which Horween himself recommends for chromexcel, for regular cleaning and conditioning. I also use Obenaufs LP in accordance with Crane's method once or twice a season.
So I've got a modest collection of AE going and would like to add a wingtip to it. My current line-up consists of black PA, merlot PA, brown Fifth Avenue, walnut Strands, and burgandy shell Randolphs. I have seen the McAllister, MacNeil, Jefferson, and Cambridge (shell only?) mentioned frequently, but I'd like to know what model you prefer/recommend and why, as well as what color you think would be most appropriate for me given my current inventory. If it matters, I'm...
