Considering purchasing a SC that is a polyamide/wool (20/80) blend. Is it possible to spot this (20 % blend) with the eye?

Yes.

It looks good to me, but I'm not sure how polyamide/wool blend fabric turns out in real life. I've never handled such fabric.

Yes.

The sport coat (Click to show)

 

The fabric looks a lot like last season's Brooks Brothers' SC that was very popular around here.

Yeah, pass unless you can handle it in person.

Thanks. Just so that I understand the reasoning behind this; is it because it looks cheap-ish or is the general rule with blends "don't buy unless you can handle the fabric in person"?

The latter. Looks good in the picture.

Looks nice, and versatile color, but if you've never worn loafers, you really should see if you like them on you first. its a really acquired taste.

How the hell are loafers an acquired taste?

This really leads me to believe that you guys are in full cravat and monocle 24/7.

Loafers: you stick your foot in it, done. In suede, goes with anything. What the fuck.

 

 

Burnished double monk strap wearers calling loafers an acquired taste. Mind blown

Have you really been a member since 2012? Nothing divides CM like loafers.

Personally, I love them, for the reasons you posted.

Because not everyone likes loafers? Or might like the idea, but don't like how they look on them? Not sure why this is controversial. . . It's been talked about on here before.

edit - also, please not I said they're an acquired taste (which does not mean that I dislike them). I actually do like loafers, but that does not mean they are for, or liked by, everyone.

Chelseas > loafers. But loafers are great. I only have one pair, cordovan pennies. Would like suede pennies at some point.
