NEW MEMBER INQUIRIES & QUICK QUESTIONS- CLASSIC MENSWEAR: WK OF JUN 1, 2015 - Page 7

post #91 of 124
Hello!

I have a good deal of experience with classic menswear but as my style has developed through the last couple of years, I find that both my SB and DB navy odd jackets are a bit snug and a bit short.

Therefore, I want to purchase a top quality navy DB odd jacket/sports coat that will last me for years. Durability is what I have found to be the most enjoyable feature of high-end menswear – the possibility of owning a garment for, say, twenty years and witnessing it age with time.

The question: Where in London might I find such a jacket? I am from Norway so going bespoke will not be possible for me ATM. But perhaps something RTW or MTM from Savile Row? I want a sturdy, mid-weight wool or flannel cloth that is not too formal so that the jacket is more versatile.

I hear that Khakis of Carmel are good, but they are also really pricey. I need something about $100. I live in Central Asia, so I only can order from online stores.
Thank you.

Check out Mr Porter. They currently have a nice choice of chinos, some of them under $100. Considering their free shipping and free returns, you can check the quality and fit by yourself.

Thank you, Grigory. And what particular brand would you recommend? I just want chinos to look ok for at least one season, or should I lower my expectations for this price?

P.S. I only saw the first part of the title on the screen of my phone, so I didn't realize that it was Classic Menswear inquiries thread. So please forgive me.

I'm wearing Polo Ralph Lauren chinos right now, got them on the recent sale at Mr P. But I didn't washed them yet and not sure how resilient they are.

I would recommend J. Crew's chinos they are sensational, and I love them. They ship internationally too, and are right at your price range. Just make sure you get a good fit.

Hello everyone! Question about grey suede bucks.



I need help coming up with an outfit with these shoes. What color pants and shirt in general would work best?

Some answers would definitely be appreciated! Thanks!

How's it going guys, new here. I have been lurking in the Suitsupply thread seeing what you guys talk about and I have to say you all are very knowledgeable about fits and fabrics. I'm pretty impressed.

 

I work at the Soho store, so seeing what you guys talk about is interesting to me.  If any of you have specific questions about the product, a fit, etc please let me know or shoot me a PM with the question.

 

I'll most likely be focused on the Suitsupply thread, but may make my way around the rest of the forum as well.

 

Thanks dudes

Hello everyone,
I'm thinking of buying my first ever tweed jacket. I would like it to be plain but textured, similar to the one below from the PS blog; but OTR rather than bespoke. About how much would such a jacket run for, and can anyone give me any recommendations on where to look to buy such a jacket? (I know there are many retailers selling tweed jackets but I'm looking for a color and texture similar to this one:). Thanks.

I have got a pair of vintage ray ban sunglasses,it's the B & L one I believe it's a wayfarer but it hasn't got the BL etching to the lenses but it's got the B&L ray ban USA on the inside of the frame and also hasn't got the ray ban logo on the frame. I don't know if this is the right way to ask thus question on this forum. Please can any one be of help. I just need to know if it is authentic. Thank you so much.

Personally, I think collared shirts look much better when worn with V neck sweaters because crew necks (the round/circle type) look a bit too casual when contrasted over a business/dress type shirt.

 

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?

Hello People,

 

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

I can see no problem with wearing Double Cuffs without a Jacket, although some people would probably jump in my face butt-naked when I say that. French cuffs are the more formal way of cuffing, you just make it more informal by wearing it without a jacket and open collar. If that and standing out of the crowd is your goal, then do so.
