How do you find the Septieme Largeur in terms of quality? I love the look of their lasts but will be buying online so can't handle a pair first.

I find the quality of Septieme Largeur most acceptable - not quite Crockett & Jones, but certainly a good value for the money. I will say that, for my feet, their 199 last (on which most of their dress shoes are made) runs a bit narrow - I sized up from a UK 8.5 to a 9 for the one pair I have on the 199 last. The 224 last is more forgiving - I'm an 8.5 UK on that last. I also bought my two pairs of them for the styling, which is different enough from the usual Anglo-American offerings to make them interesting, but I had the advantage of buying them in Paris from the shop on the Left Bank.

Luger, thanks for yesterday's compliments, BTW, and more pin-collar shirts will emerge in the coming weeks.

My husband and I are having dinner with a former colleague and his "significant other", after giving them the five-cent tour of the work-in-progress that eventually will be our new home. Thought that I would try to get one more wearing out of today's suit before it would look too out of season.

Suit - Paul Stuart/Phineas Cole
Shirt - Tyrwhitt
Tie - Turnbull & Asser
Cufflinks - DVVS, New York
Braces - Trafalgar, via Paul Stuart
Shoes - C & J

We all love the perfect coffee brew but I try not to let "perfect be the enemy of good enough" as the saying goes.

That's completely right.

Nice Donegal for the fall. Cool choice on red buttons as well. :fonz:   Taking a page out of Prince Chuck's playbook with the sock repair:

Thanks. Buttons are actually more of a caramel colored corozo.

That resembles nothing so much as the Prince of Wales' shoe repair - apparently, he believes that one pair of George Cleverley's is enough for one lifetime.

Disagree: RFHansen's outfit struck me as one of the few on the internet with any real "sprezz'". I like the slight mismatch with the unpressed cotton trousers. He could be wearing a more summery tie (shantung, linen, matka, poplin etc.) but that would look more calculated. And Hermes type prints are about as informal as foulard gets.

I see that you are pretty new so I'll give you a few tips.

 

Check out the Working Heirarchical Suit Thread and take a look at the brands to get an idea of quality SportsCoats/Suits

 

For Trousers Howard Yount,Panta,Brooks Brothers and Epaulet are some of the well known quality Trousers around here. I am personally a fan of Brooks Brothers(at least 1818 and not outlet) trousers.

 

For Shirts Charles Tyrwhitt,Brooks Brothers,and Kumakara are some of the popular shirt brands

 

Nice Tie by the way :slayer: 

 

Good Luck and keep posting.

@blekit the tie and shirt look too busy together. Try the same shirt with a brown grenadine tie, or the same shirt with a plain sky blue shirt.

@Caustic Man and @wigglr, your fits each capture sublimely why fall is my favorite sartorial season.
