Predominantly golf brand right?

They're mid-tier, I believe. If you like something and the price seems reasonable, I wouldn't hesitate. The MSRP seems a bit high to me, though.

I see a lot of that stuff at Wingtip and Cable Car in SF, and it does look fairly nice, but absolutely overpriced at retail. Like, hella.

Also 18 sizes too big usually

Peter Millar actually makes some solid stuff for casual wear IMO.  I prefer it over Brooks Brothers due to better styles and fits.  Gold stuff is nice as well.

Their tailored stuff used to be made by Lardini, I believe, but I don't think it is anymore. They use quality construction techniques from 2nd and 3rd world countries, mostly. I like them though. I have some casual pants and shirts from them, and they are well made. But they do tend to make shit baggy, so buy the fitted stuff.

Is anyone else completely over double breasteds? I feel they have no place in the modern wardrobe except in a few colors of formal suit. I continue to be amazed that people so wantonly wear double breasted odd sportcoats (online, at least). I don't think I've ever seen that in real life except on store clerks and it would be completely ridiculous in most contexts. Even the DB blazer is a relic at this point.

Also, has noodles considered using recreational marijuana? Tremendous benefits would accrue, I think.

My girlfriends dad wears them. I think as long as you have the confidence, it works.

Edit - it's also a more traditional DB though, no obnoxious patterns

I think Jack Victor makes their stuff now. Dont quote me on that though. I remember hearing it. Their sportswear stuff is really high quality, but definitely size down one from normal sizing

I have a DB linen herringbone navy jacket that I love. I think the style works and is modern enough in style and fit. I think there are some DBs that are trying too hard and then some that are well balanced and minimal which I think look the best.

I haz no steez.

 

The top one gilds the lily too much for me. You had better be a balls to the walls bad mofo if you are going to walk in with a DB, ascot, and orange pocket square. And browliners.

 

Bottom seems good, what are the sneaks?
