If by "V" you mean the shape of your lapels - there is a small minority which prefer a high gorge.

And who are your calling a random stranger?

Sadly, no. He does look over at my computer when shoes are pictured. Or when his favorite designers are featured. 


@ Bertie: That's amusing. We haven't conversed before. Now that we're having a (somewhat) conversation, I retract my "random stranger" comment.

This is probably the best resource on dressing well for dudes. If you want to learn about either classic men's clothing or street wear , you likely won't find a more informed community.

The CM forum can be a bit stuffy and rule oriented but has valuable insights into tailored clothing. The SW&D forum is authentic and honest and fun.

And hello.

I mainly post in the CM section. My hubs doesn't do streetwear. No idea why. He knows what he likes, haha. I rather enjoy this community and everyone's insights. The amount of knowledge is amazing too! It's a very welcoming forum.


And hello to you too, Bertie!

I did not think I was SW&D (i am 50) but if you want denim or any kind of leather jackets -that is the place to learn. Your hubby may appreciate a ToJ leather jacket for example.

Guys always appreciate an alternative point of view though so please participate where you can. nod[1].gif

I agree with this one. I've seen females working in a men's consignment store and they don't get nearly as much attention as females on here. I may be a female, but my personality is tomboy-ish. Treat me like any other person! lol8[1].gif

When I refreshed my wardrobe my first suit was a charcoal pinstripe. I've since added two solids a navy and a light gray. The navy gets by far the most use.

Assuming a stripe is a good choice at all (for body type and circumstances), then probably the most important details are for the stripe to be a low-key color on either a gray or navy background, in a standard wool.
