How/when/where/why does one wear chocolate brown suede tassel loafers? Was recently awestruck by a beautiful pair of Ralph Lauren Purple Label shoes.
Hi, I'd like to order some white mother of pearl buttons. 3C: 32L (20mm) x 3 24L (15mm) x 10 Thanks very much! -Ryan
It's common in Japan for men who aren't allowed to wear ties (Cool Biz) in the summer. Strengthens the collar area visually, just like double buttons or contrasting buttonhole thread. They don't always look good, but they don't always look bad.
How tall are you? (Thinking about how your sportscoat fits on you)

That thread about SF retailers should be relevant... it's here.

I'm still trying to get a hang of what's flashy but not too flashy, what's neutral enough, and what is as far as possible from "party tie" which is the unfortunate association many people seem to have with them. I also really like the third tie posted above (the Argyle Sutherland). People say the Churchill dot bow tie is good, but I think it's too dressy for most occasions. Maybe not.

I ordered a cheap (striped repp) tie from an unknown maker on eBay yesterday. The description looks good but I don't know.
