Favorite clothes in your closet - Page 2

post #16 of 24
We are a pretty well dressed bunch.. Suit - Single breasted, three button Bergdorf Goodman private label, made by Sartoria Castangia. Light grey flannel with a white chalk-stripe. Paid appx. $300. Blazer/sportcoat - Single breasted, three button Luciano Barbera (by Attolini.) Light-to-medium weight Super 140's navy wool with a windowpane pattern done in French blue and bottle green. I'm also extremely fond of my black cotton/cashmere corduroy sportcoat by Cantarelli and my bespoke Alan Flusser Black Watch plaid sportcoat (single breasted with peak lapels..) The Barbera was $240, the Cantarelli was $160 and the Flusser was $99. Dress slacks - lightweight gabardine wool in the perfect shade of tan/cream by Oxxford Clothes. Paid $40   Dress/casual slacks - My Sartorio (Attolini) cords. They are the most incredible cords ever - 50% silk and 50% cashmere, I have them in dark red, dark orange and dark olive. Paid $65/pr   Dress shirt - a toss up between a spread collar number by Borrelli in the perfect shade of rich cream and a dark yellow/cream broad-striped buttondown, also by Borrelli. Both for Wilkes Bashford - I don't think ANYBODY can beat Wilkes when it comes to dress shirts and ties. Paid $35 each   Casual shirt - another toss up between a light blue Borrelli with a brown check pattern and a light blue chambray Borrelli. Paid $20 for the checked shirt and $10 for the chambray Coat - Lightweight and soft brown/grey tweed Kiton casual coat. Hard to describe but the coolest cut of any casual coat I've ever seen. I actually made $250 on this coat but that is another story... I'm also rather fond of my super soft, pebble grain, dark brown Longhi coat which reverses to black cashmere/wool. Paid appx. $240   Tie - Light green smooth-woven with light silver polka dots by Ike Behar. Paid $24 Tie pin - antique art deco stick pin - a tiny but beautifully detailed lady's head. Paid appx. $30 Cuff links - simple antique small gold ovals with a subtle roped edge. Double-sided of course. I'm also very fond of a pair of double-sided gold ovals with a design in bottle green enamel. Paid about $20 each I think.     Pocket Square - either a blue/white linen square from Bergdorf or my white linen RLPL squares with the perforated, seamed edge. Paid $5 for the RLPL and $13 for the Bergdorf. Dress shoes - antique tan cap toe derby by Edward Green for Ralph Lauren Purple Label. Paid $270 Casual shoes - black shell cordovan "combat boots" by Laszlo Vass. They are a plain toe, high lacing, double stitched  boot with a cleated Vibram sole. I got a good deal since I'm the rep :-)   Don't get too upset over the obscenely low prices - I shop 50+ hours a month in the course of my business so I'm bound to run into a deal or two

So, I take my clothing and appearance perhaps a little too seriously.
I don't think so Foxx, we need more guys like you around. Maybe someday the Style Forum will have changed the world and we'll be able to walk down the street in Brioni suits and nobody will notice. That would be cool... In the meantime, it's good to have you back safe in the US, and on the forum.

What's your opinion of Cantarelli? And how did you come by the Flusser sportcoat? (I'm dying to get a single breasted peak lapel anything).

Jeans: Rogan. Anything else other than rogan or PDC is unnacceptable. Heck, ill even add Levi's for iconic purposes. Jacket: Gucci silk bomber Shoes: Nike dunks, air jordans. Adidas Stan Smith. I'm a twenty year old college student. As of now, I dont have the money nor the opportunity to buy and wear a pair of John Lobbs or anything else of that nature. Shirt: Brown Louis Vuitton Dress Shirt. Perfect for a night out. Polo Shirt: Brioni Suit: Have none as of now, any suggestions? Coat: John Varvatos Blazer: White Burberry prorsum. Good for the evening with a pair of jeans and simple t-shirt. T-shirt: Vintage coca-cola. Yeah i know its very strokes-like.

I've heard of Rogan. I want to buy a pair of those.

Perchance that this doesn't suit your needs but Gucci has a nice single breasted peak lapel jacket. Albeit Gucci isn't cheap it might not suit the standards of Kiton, and such. Are Gucci's fused or canvas front? I believe that Gucci has a bespoke line made by Zegna Napoli.

Jeans: Paper Denim, but I'll wear Rogan, Sevens, Von Dutch, Diesel, Levis, Wranglers, Lee's, etc.. so long as I like the wash and cut. Sneakers: Black Converse Chuck Taylors. I like Dunks, wierd Italian brands like Nose, Pumas, Ludwig Reiter Sport, fancy Converse by Varvatos, etc... but I always come back to the classic. Boots: Prada brown box calf buckle back boots from a their "western" season. Shirt: Moleskin snap button shirt by Jil Sander from 98 or 99. I have one in orange, and another in brown/khaki, and would wear them every single day, if I could. Jacket: Chestnut/chocolate brown moleskin jacket with stand up collar by Costume National from F/W 2002/2003. Favorite piece in my closet. T-Shirt: Orange/flesh t-shirt with moss green felt "Saxon Raiders" logo on it by One True Saxon. I know, fake vintage. But it is a cool shirt. Belt - used to be my Varvatos belt, but I've been wearing a Paul Smith number with a distinctive silver buckle and made from thick bridle leather recently. It's wearing in nicely. Suit: I always seem to go to my three button peaked lapel Emporio Armani. Not the best construction, but the silhouette is topnotch for me and I love Armani's crepey materials. As you guys know, I love highly textured materials. Mike C. - totally dig the Schott jacket.

Jeans: Helmut Lang dark wash or Theory dark wash Tristans... the HL look nicer since they are a crisper denim, but I can wear my Theory jeans for days on end. Sneakers: those are for running only Shoes: Edward Green Berkeley in Edwardian or JL blucher in a chestnut color... the Lobbs are a bit more comfortable but not as distinctive. Shirt: Charles Tyrwhitt Sea Island black and blue check, I get the most complements wearing this shirt. Knitwear: navy Ralph Lauren cableknit cashmere sweater (really soft), or a light brown Malo cashmere v-neck.   One of the most versatile pieces in my wardrobe. Jacket: Brooks Brothers, 3-button black cashmere.  I know, not as nice as a top name, but for less than $150 brand new I couldn't go wrong. T-Shirt: see sneakers Belt - Coach black pebbled calfskin with silver buckle.  Three years and counting. Suit: I only have 1 suit worth mentioning.  3-button gray Calvin Klein Collection.  Yes, its fused, but the drape looks good on me. Tie: sentimental favorite, black and white Charles Tyrwhitt handwoven.   I got into every school I interviewed with this tie (and I didnt get any love with the Pink tie I wore ) Cologne: Issey Miyake for Men (my date's roomate recognized it last Thursday night) or Bulgari Blu.

Jeans: A pair my wife found for me at Sisley, honestly. They're well-made and fit me exceptionally well. Sneakers: red Reebok Paul Smith collapsable travel trainers Shoes: Ludwig Reiter Gustav Mahlers Shirt: all of my shirts of late have been made by Zum Jockey Club of Vienna. Knitwear: dark grey Loro Piana crewneck Jacket: camel peacoat from Helmut Lang ca. Fall 98/Winter 99. T-Shirt: red Lacoste polo, made in France before the move to Peruvian manufacture. Belt - I don't pay much attention to belts. Suit: High-stance two button peak lapel in midnight blue fabric with broken lavender striping tailored by Max Dietl. (This suit is a replacement for a very similar Brioni that was murdered by an errant cigarette at a reception.) Tie: Titanium grey with embossed rep pattern seven-fold by Kiton. Cologne: Creed Green Valley Peace, JG
