post #13156 of 33197

Hey guys, looking for some advice on this blazer I bought:

 

scaled.php?server=577&filename=blazes.jpg&res=mediumscaled.php?server=339&filename=spreada.jpg&res=medium

 

I feel it's a bit too big, and I think the sleeves are a bit long.  The man at the store insisted it was the proper fit all around.  And there were plenty of sizes of the same blazer, so it's not like he was just selling me this just to sell it to me.  Being new to this type of fashion, I took his word for it, and he was a well dressed man himself, so I figured he knew what he was talking about.

 

I'm wondering how you think it fits in the shoulders and midsection.

 

I appreciate any insight.

Wanted to get a quick opinion on a pair of Harris shoes I just got that were marked down a bit at Barney's. I'm not sure if they are too narrow or not. Any thoughts? I'm still somewhat young and I'm trying to balance between bleeding edge trendy and traditional. I'm planning to wear them with my navy RLBL suit or dark jeans and a navy custom Italian cut blazer and hoping to keep them part of my rotation for a few years to come with care. I think they are a little too much for trousers or dark/crisp jeans and just a nice shirt without a blazer or jacket. I can still take them back since I haven't worn them out yet, but wanted an opinion before I decide. You can see them on Barney's website or the inserted images I took of mine.

My washing machine has two settings-- "wrinkle free" and "cotton." What's the difference? Which will be more delicate on my clothes?

hi. any thoughts on where to get a similarly toned (snuff color) and sleek chelsea boot? or a similar jodphur for that matter? I'm shopping around.

If you have the manual read the manual. My guess is that the wrinkle free setting keeps your clothes slightly damper when finished so they can be hung to dry. Probably not as intense of a spin cycle.

Unfortunately I'm just renting an apartment at the moment and the manual is nowhere to be found. Google seemed to indicate wrinkle free was the way to go, but I just wanted to poll the collective knowledge here to confirm smile.gif Thanks.

having no idea your budget... seems like this might be an ok quartz for you given your techie feel.. about $300 (although most on here will hate this I presume lol8[1].gif)
or maybe this is more dressy.... about the same price

I like the Museum watch but it's really a little too formal for jeans. The Seiko is a better suggestion.

Someone with Corneliani experience: Is $350 for a PRL 100% cashmere SC a good deal? Seemed nice enough but wasn't sure if $350 was a steal or mediocre. Retail was around $2300, if that helps.

It's not a bad price, if you like the coat and it's NWT in a desirable size and pattern. I'd consider $150-$200 a great deal, but such bargains are less common these days than they used to be.

Really depends on the coat. I'd say $350 would be a good price on a cashmere blazer in 38R, but somewhat pricey for one of Ralph's weird oversized patterns in a 44.

Thanks, Doc. That is my thinking. It's at Marshall's and hasn't been marked down yet. I'm hoping that it will get a further chop in a couple weeks (as seems to be the trend at my location). At below $300 I'd be highly tempted, but since I really don't need it I wanted to get an informed opinion before I jumped.

I have been looking at purchasing a pair of double monk strap shoes but can only find a model made by churches in a UK wide G. My feet are rather wide and was wondering, would an F width also work since the straps are adjustable? Or would my feet hang over the soul a bit?

anyone know how joseph abboud fit?  what's their cut?  found this which seems like a good deal for a half canvas suit.  for reference i'm a 40R and HF are way too big on me.  Eurocuts fit me better.

Trafalgar suspenders okay?

 

Don't need to be mind blowing. Just decent.

I like those shoes. They are sleek; but I don't think they are too sleek and would wear them with suits or dark jeans and blazer. Enjoy.

I like Trafalgar stuff in general... very decent for the price. Just make sure you get the Made in USA stuff... I believe they've started outsourcing some shit to the place I shall not name.
