Good Natured Advice Thread (improving a business wardrobe) - Page 258post #3857 of 376633/25/14 at 5:54ampost #3858 of 376633/25/14 at 6:17amFiance is making me buy a suit in Korea. I am thankful but I feel like I am totally on my own since I don't know any local brands. My tailor just taught me how to look for fully canvassed. But can anyone give me some guidance on how to gauge the quality of fabrics?
Jacket length must cover my seat.
Lapels better be wide.
That's what I will be looking for.
Clags, buy a spanish blue.post #3859 of 376633/25/14 at 6:21amThread Starterpost #3860 of 376633/25/14 at 7:20ampost #3861 of 376633/25/14 at 7:38amQuote:Originally Posted by Betelgeuse
Thanks! I usually like to build a first layer with a little wax and apply it with my finger and rub it until it gets "dry". Then spary a few drops of weather and buff with a cotton cloth. Then apply a few layers of Crat's method. And finish with a… I don't know how it is called in English but I use like a lady sock (?) and give a final buff. Don't know why that brings a bit more of shine to the shoe.
Pantyhose? Like a thin nylon sock.
Clags - I vote blue herringbone as well. How wide are you talking when you say wide?

One thing you don't seem to have is an evening blazer. Something with some shine to it. Not that you can't wear these at night, but they aren't specifically for nighttime. I'd suggest velvet if you want to get something for cooler weather (or just something awesome), and a mohair or silk blend for warmer weather.post #3864 of 376633/25/14 at 7:47ampost #3865 of 376633/25/14 at 8:17amThread Starterpost #3866 of 376633/25/14 at 8:26ampost #3867 of 376633/25/14 at 10:53amQuote:Originally Posted by Claghorn
BUY RUDALS A DRINK
Rudals is coming to Korea for his wedding, and I'm going out with Rudals this coming Sunday. If you'd like to buy him a drink, message me and I'll give you my paypal information. You can specify the drink. Any left over (I don't know how much individual drinks cost!) will be pooled together to buy more drinks for Rudals. I will upload each drink, as well as who it is from (if desired).
2nd to last is a fresco-ish (I think "fresco" actually refers to a specifcally to Minnis) and a blazer suit. In fact, #1, #7, and #8 are all blazer suits (though only #7 is meant to really function as a suit in terms of even approaching that level of business attire; maybe #8 as well).
Wide herringbone has been suggested and is definitely a top candidate. I'd also love to see if I or B&T can scrounge up something in houndstooth that resolves to solid fairly quickly.
So how much is for 5 shot of tequila? But nice tequila. First of all, no white tequila, that shit doesn't work. Second, something like Herradura Reposado. I want Noodals to taste somethin that make hm say: Damn you Betlegeuse!post #3868 of 376633/25/14 at 11:07ampost #3869 of 376633/25/14 at 11:11amQuote:
It is nice but it is white because it has less age years. When it is "Reposado" first it has more aging process and secondly, and I think most important, is that, it is 100% agave which is the plant from which the Tequila comes from. Sometimes white ones are not 100% from agave and they are going to give you some terrible headaches next morning.post #3870 of 376633/25/14 at 11:14am
@Rudals Plus one (if you get stoned, you might as well do it on the dope of your choice).
Make it a full round for @Claghorn (pls pm your pp to me) and you, though.
(Slight word of caution, I had borderline abomb poisoning at the end of last year's Oktoberfest. Beer, Scotch, Jaegermeister, Tequila, ... didn't become me...)
