Which leather weekend bag?

Mulberry -$1,700

365
365

Glaser - $750

308

The price does not make that big a difference as long as I am getting something extra for the money. Also open to any other suggestions in a similar style.

it's difficult to tell the leather quality, feel and thickness from the pix but the Glaser looks nice... considering it's less than half the Mulberry. We've posted a bunch of these recently in http://new.styleforum.net/t/115841/the-definitive-manbag-thread-post-feedback-brands-here/2055 there are other pages with weekenders as well. Have you checked out Lotuff?

There was a bit of hate for Mulberry quality when I was researching bags a while ago. It's Mr. Porter, why not order it and return if you don't like it?

In regards to collared shirts/button ups

 

Hi, I have a question about collared shirts.

 

I usually wear button down collared shirts (collars that button down), but recently I've been trying to mix things up and add more to my wardrobe

 

Are there any types of collared shirts (collar type) that can be WORN OPEN in all in a business casual and casual setting during both the day and night that aren't button downs?

 

I'd like to get a collared shirt that I can wear during the morning to night that I can wear to the class, the office, dinner, and going out that doesn't have a button down collar.  I know I should stay away from  spread collars then cause they don't look right when worn open and without a tie (read it here http://onemansstyle.wordpress.com/2009/07/07/corporate-style-part-3-shirts/#comment-259).

 

Do you have suggestions? links to the shirt, brands, and ect.

You are looking for a standard point collar. Pretty much any shirt that isn't a button down or a spread.

I made a mistake while buying a white dress shirt. After buying it, it turned out the dress shirt has French cufflinks. As I am currently still a student who is doing his internship it's not approriate for me to wear that shirt to the office. Any recommendations where or how I could wear the dress shirt in a casual way?

I know some here will disagree, but if you just wear it with low key cufflinks you are just fine. Unless your work is super formal/regimented. Where do you work?

It would be hard to make a white french cuff shirt come off as casual, but you can wear it as you would any other white dress shirt. I would always wear a Suit or SC though, not jacket-less.

I think most SFers would still wear a spread collar. That blog you posted mentioned staying away from "cutaway" collars without a tie.

Here are two Isaia jackets of mine with 3-roll-2.5 stances. The lapels seem to bend outward when the second button is done. Is this something that should/can be corrected by a tailor?

Hard to see, the pics are pretty small and half of them are blurry... plain.gif

Sorry for that. I can try to get better pictures later. But can you see how the jacket bows outward on the side view pics? (Just above the top button) I'm not sure that's supposed to happen

No, it means you are wearing a size too small.

I'd tend to disagree with that. If anything, it is too big in the upper chest area. There seems to be excess fabric that needs to be shaped. Not too little.

I'd be swimming in a 40R Isaia.

It looks like the bottom part of the jacket is pushing up, maybe due to the waist, causing that bend. Maybe some part of the waist will have to be let out...
