It seems closer to a pique front tuxedo shirt than anything other weave I've seen, yet it is viewed as inherently more casual.

I don't get it, but that's the "rules."

 

Yeah I was under the impression that the Royal Oxford is a bit of a shiny fabric, which I thought would lend it to being dressier.

Hi guys,

I've posted a thread where there will be lots of pictures from the upcoming Pitti Uomo 89. Please feel free to subscribe to it. There are a few pictures in there already, so... feel free to participate in the heated discussion that will inevitably arise on the pros and cons of this biannual peacock bonanza.

I don't know if I'd consider it shiny (though perhaps we're not speaking the same menswear lingo lol), but I definitely would have considered it a dressier fabric. I for one absolute love the weave.

What is a versatile gingham color to be worn mostly casual?
post #32990 of 37396
Different shades of blue. Light blue, navy, etc., with a white ground.
post #32991 of 37396

Brown in the mix is good too I think?

Back to suede chukkas …

 

Anyone have strong feelings about the preferred number of eyelets?

 

Cheers,

This.

Yes, that's my sense as well. 

 

To me one of the defining characteristics of the chukka that distinguishes it from other laced ankle boots is the small number of eyelets, hence 2 is more chukka-like than 3, so to speak.

 

Cheers,

Nice.

Should I get a nice watch (from the wife) or spread the $ around for clothing i.e. sporcoat, pants, chukkas, etc? Wife says get the watch as it will last
