steven said upgrading your shoes is an easy way to spend 25k for a work wardobe which I found to be absurd if you're a sw guy and don't have 25k to waste on mc shoes to get by for work

Check out my interview with Paul and Sara of S.E.H. Kelly. A brand you all should be foaming at the mouth about.

Looking forward to reading that, Teger. What I love is that they have this fully formed point-of-view right out of the gate. from pattern design, fabrics to their site design, photography, look book, etc. It's a distinctive look but seems like it could meld with other heritage stuff pretty well.

That can usually be fixed really easily by a tailor. I think it's just a matter of raising or lowering the collar. that bump can happen on any level suit -- just depends on the pattern and how you are built (shoulders/back shape, etc). I still think OTR suit + a little tailoring mojo is the best way to go.

So far I just have a couple Epaulet suits for work and a Boglioli silk blend one for fun. I'll probably look to add something a step up or so (or hopefully find a brand that fits me a little better). Then I want to upgrade a couple of my shoes - I have the "essentials" already more or less, but some of them are of lesser quality. That should be plenty. Oh, and add a couple more nice shirts (although Kamakura would probably be enough) and ties. My tie game is pretty feeble.

have you considered simply sizing up?

I'm a measured 45, though have worn a 44 jacket for as long as I can remember and also regularly get the slight ridge beneath the collar and some dimpling at the shoulders despite seams falling where they should on OTR stuff. has been remedied of late by simply going up to a 46/56 assuming shoulder length is also accommodative.

tried on two jackets tonight, 54 fit through the chest, slight ridge at the base of the collar and slight dimpling at the shoulders. 56, no ridge, no dimpling, still works through the chest. just need to get the waist taken in a bit more.

How secured is the Opening Ceremony online store? I just tried checking out 2 times and both times there was an error saying my credit card has expired. Tried it once more and my order got through however I never got an email from them confirming my order. And now I just got a text from my bank saying to contact their Fraud Assist department regarding my credit card =/

About as secure as Target...

 

But seriously, your order probably went through 3 times and triggered your banks fraud detection.

grail is on eBay and somehow the Global Shipping Program fees are 1/3 the cost of the item. :(

Yoox and Yoox sites (the corner) are hopeless for descriptions. The color for a Dries belt that I bought, according to Yoox, was "black". Yet, in the pictures, the color is clearly a very dark, black tinted brown, and on the box, the belt is clearly marked "DKBRN", which, in every naming system known, means "Dark Brown."  I mean, I wanted it to be dark brown, instead of black (I have limited use for things that are a straight up black), but you'd hope that TheCorner would be able to read a label.

perhaps it's a sign you should stop copping belts
post #89157 of 109053
Hey, at the ridiculous discounts they sell stuff at, they can label there shoot whatever they want. Hell that just make it more likely it'll make it to deep discount for yours truly

OC has been compromised before. I remember they sent out an apology email sometime last year or late 2011.

Apparently content people aren't worth hiring.

The little roll under the collar is usually because your posture is slightly more erect than the pattern of the suit.

Now here is the rub: most men stand more erect than normal when looking at themselves in the mirror or when being fitted by a tailor (which, anectodally, is why some old school bespoke tailors prefer to do fittings without a mirror). Also, turning your head to check your back may create the ripple.

So, in conclusion, you need to assess the back of your suit when in your most "normal" posture - walk around the room a little, shake your arms, then look at a 3-way mirror without changing your posture. If the collar roll is still there, have a semi-competent alteration tailor fix it.
