Can I get an inspirational pic of this? I'm getting dreamy just thinking about it.

I'd appreciate the link, though I'll be most likely going ahead with more spread. The evidence that I greatly prefer spread collar is pretty damned conclusive.

I was hoping for something from real life...

*smiles* Understandably so. I am sure from the myriad menswear tumblrs  etal  around would emerge what you are looking for.

400 images, this is what I got for light to mid brown jacket, stone to cream pants (got darker than cream and there's plenty, mind you).

Unfortunately, I don't have any saved, and it was harder than I'd thought finding by googling.

Guys, I'll be in NYC this week (arriving Tuesday). What are the must-visit menswear opportunities?

leffot for shoes, the Armoury, TiptopBrooklyn for cloth

Um, NMWA....You might catch the end of the 15% sale, but email Greg or Kyle. I'd make that your first stop.

Edit: note it's not a B&M store, so the thing to do is to buy on-line and then pick up stuff saving on shipping, or have some things on wish list and then try them on, look at them so that you buy them. PM greg on that.

Any insight on where (if applicable) to track the cufflinks they have on offer? I quite like a few of their links/studs, but was immediately suspicious of the cost, despite not seeming over the top, due to the near $600 price for standard Carminas.

Don't know that particular brand, sorry. But there are a lot of other affiliates that offer cufflinks (KW, HY,NMWA, etc) for a fraction of the cost.

I hear ya. Actually have a few Wangs and via NMWA, and they're excellent.

 

That said, I'm a cufflink/stud junkie, so always seeking new possibilities.
