Hi everybody,

I am just curious about getting my hands on some pocket knife holder from either Alden och other Shell cordovan manufacture. Are there any retailers online? i got in contact with Alden shop in NY but they would charge me 90 US for shippment to Sweden and that is not including tax ( 25%). Anyone who could recommend other stores i can e-mail or get in contact with? Best regards from overseas!

question regarding collars and face type

 

I've done my research on collars and which  ones go with which face shape.  I'd like to wear spread collars but I don't think they'll fit my face shape, seeing as to how my face is sorta square/boxy.

 

Are point collars and button down collars my only options?  I know they look better on me cause they help to elongate my face. Just sucks to know my options are limited :/

Question regarding true 3 button suits:

Is it acceptable for the top button not being buttoned?

Just a picture of a random true 3 button jacket for illustration purposes:

460

Also, is it possible to alter a suit from a true 3 button to a 3 roll 2 or 2 1/2?

Button the middle or top 2, your choice. I wouldn't try to convert a 3 button to a 3 roll 2 as yuo would have to lengthen the lapel.

These are guides. You can still wear a spread collar.

It is not possible, the collar and the chest innards have to be totally different.

Seems like this question comes up once a week.

I own one navy suit and black oxfords and belt. Someone told me my belt sucked. Could someone please link me to a nice dress belt (aka STAPLE) that will look like it cost more than $50 but less than $500?

If you want to go all out, I'm also considering getting brown oxfords and a brown belt and would appreciate tips on that belt (definitely going to get either Allen-Edmonds or Aldends) and I also have a charcoal suit on my radar.

are AE bayfield boots suitable for real hiking? or are they more for looks and not real function?

i've been thinking about going hiking with some friends (they go regularly)
but i don't want to buy hiking boots or shoes that are solely for that purpose as it'll only be an occasional trip for me
so if the AE boots can actually stand up to getting roughed up and climbing over dirt and rock paths and such, then i'd rather get these to serve more than 1 purpose

I am sure you could, but they will be pretty beat up. I don't see the point in wearing an urban dress boot for hiking though. Just get Doc Martens.

Get real hiking boots. While modern materials and technology don't do a whole lot for the charm, appearance and purpose of dress shoes they have greatly improved technical footwear and apparel. Take it from a grunt, you only go as for as your boots will take you so get the right ones.

I just bought a pair of Paul Smith York Boots in a size UK 8. I usually wear a US 10, but I've been told that they fit "big". Well, the length is good, but they are rather tight throughout. Should I expect these to stretch to a more comfortable fit with wear, or am I doomed?

I have a navy suit and a tan suit, and the only time I could see wearing the black tie would be with a tan suit and white shirt or some other "sartorial" combination as you've referred...it's not that I need advice, I just obsess over versatility and I literally want someone else to make the decision for me smile.gif

thanks for the input!

I'm glad to have contributed whatever I may have. Burgundy and navy are my two favorite colors, and go with pretty much anything, anyway. Enjoy the kopping.
