French Cuffs/Cufflinks without a suit jacket - If doing so, is it acceptable to wear the first 2 buttons open? Or should one not be wearing the FC without a jacket?

 

Cheers

 

Welcome to the forum, Bob.  FWIW, French cuffs without a jacket is not something I (or almost anyone on the forum) would ever do.

But from a stylistic perspective, is it acceptable to wear a collared shirt under a crew neck top? Or would that be like wearing a suit jacket with trousers belonging to a different suit?


No. A crewneck sweater in wool looks great over a shirt. If by "business/dress" shirt, you mean a shirt in, say, white poplin with a spread collar, I agree. But a crewneck over an oxford buttondown or something key to classic Ivy style.

@SuperBob There was already a thread about this question. As you may see there, it is always a matter of what you use it for

Hello, new user here, not sure if this is the right section to post in, but I thrifted these shoes, and I cant find any info online about them. Does anyone know more about them and give me some info? thanks!

I'm hoping this is not one of those "stupid questions".  I'm new to the Styleforum. 

What should I do with this overcoat?  1969 Oxxford Clothes A&E King's Vicuna top coat.  My sister would like to sell it but don’t know how much to ask for it.  The linen ticket says it was tailored in 1969 for James Medici (could this be the infamous antiquities dealer Giacomo Medici?).  Thank you in advance for any information/suggestions you have for me, if you don’t mind.

 

Respectfully, Rhonda

Hey guys,

 

I'm a Marketer from Brazil living in San Francisco, I recently got a job at a men's clothing startup and felt the need to get more knowledgeable about fashion. So what better place to get some quality insights than the style forum?

 

Cheers

Questions for suits:


Athletic build: Slim suit? or Regular/Classic fit?


If I'm 5 foot 5 and 140 lbs with a good physique (skinny big pectorals build), can I still wear slim fit suits? or would they look weird on me? Do you need me to show you a picture?


For short men, what's better a one button suit/blazer? or two button?


If I'm ordering a slim suit, do I always have to get a slim notch lapel with it? Or can is it normal to get a regular sized notched lapel with a slim suit?

Buy something middle of the road, neither too slim nor too loose. You want to cloth to lie cleanly. This gets different labels at different places – I can't consider a "regular" fit at Brooks Brothers and need the slimmer ones, but then at Suit Supply, which cuts skinnier clothes in general, I need one of their less-slim fits.

 

Hard to find one button suits off the rack, and when you do they often have other unusual details, which tend to make the suit less conservative (and sometimes less versatile).

 

@TitoAraujo I'd suggest watching the webseries "Put This On," and reading books by G. Bruce Boyer, Alan Flusser, and Bernhard Roetzel.

May i know what shoe is this?
post #116 of 124


I'm not getting any answers on the AE Appreciation Thread so I'm hoping I can get some help here. Is this creasing on the front of the cap toe of my Park Avenue normal? This is my correct size and I do keep them in shoe trees. I also condition and polish them every now and then. So I'm a bit confused.

From my experience, crease on caps are not normal. however, I have no  idea how to prevent it from happening or how to get rid of it... ask your cobbler!

I am new to this forum; compelled to join by an in vain 7 week scour of various retail outlets across London and the Internet for a beautiful tweed jacket that I saw an interviewee on the news in early Dec wearing. I am hoping that somebody will recognise my description and help me acquire this jacket for myself.
It was a fleeting view; I remember a light brown/ruddy tweed with a blue, perhaps red, perhaps both, windowpane check, but what caught my eye most was a striking and prominent gold fleck throughout.
I have been advised in various shops that it may well have been a bespoke garment but I have been unable to find the fabric online either.
I would be very grateful if anyone could help me track down either the garment or the cloth.
