Is there any benefit to using a wash bag to wash all your socks in?

They might not get lost as easily. Also, they probably won't agitate as much being confined to a bag.

(2) I wouldnt worry about what colors you wear during the day versus at night.  I think thats purely a personal thing. 

Thanks alot, well appreciated.
I guess I`ll find a upscale store and compare their ties to some shitty ones I´ve got already.

Sorry for the double post. Still curious as to why Tailored Suits Paris is so looked down upon here.

 

Edit: The reason that I am asking is because I have one of their suits and want to make sure it is the quality I believe it to be before I invest more money.

Is it possible to get a decent MTM suit for about 700 USD?

Hi All, 

 

I bought these C&Js at a thrift store about 3 years ago on a trip to London.  I believe the store was in Notting Hill, but I'm not certain.  I didn't know what they were at the time (nor sadly what Crockett & Jones was) but due to their comfort and quality, they basically single-footedly (sorry, bad) were the impetus (im-ped-us? No? I'll stop.) to my becoming more interested in well-made clothing and footwear.  All I know is that they're C&J Drummonds.  Inside it reads 5056 12 8E x39902.  On the insole it reads "Hand Benched and Hand Finished by Craftsmen".  Thanks in advance for any information you can provide.

Is this a Dark Shadows theme wedding?

Well, I don't much care for it, but neither do I pretend to understand how a bride or a wedding planner thinks.

Now, let me exercise my incredible psychic powers...

It's a daytime wedding, isn't it?

I totally get the whole hatred of renting thing.

But come on - you know perfectly well that you will wear this tuxedo one time only. It just doesn't make sense to drop hundreds of dollars to purchase a tuxedo you'll only wear once.

So if you can buy the exact tuxedo the bride wants you to wear - the EXACT one, mind you - for no more than twice what it'd cost you to rent it, then buy. And afterwards, sell it or donate it. Otherwise, rent it. Tell yourself it's like renting an unpleasant hotel room or an disappointing car for a week while you're out of town on business. Not ideal, but nothing you can't endure. Particularly since you'll only have to put up with the thing for a matter of hours.

Oh, and was the pocket square color chosen to match the bridesmaids' dresses?

I own several tuxedos (a notch and peak single buttons...love the single buttons...and the same in a two-button variation) and HATE the idea of renting anything. I want to purchase and be done with it but I am a bit conservative in my style. Not only does this tux strike me as trendy, I've never even seen anything like it to research its history. I'm not sure that I want it in my closet.

Anyone care to enlighten me?  

This is a monstrosity.....are you required to wear a foamy red nose and curly wig with this?

Wear your peak lapel and urgently insist the bride reconsider her reasoning for this nightmare and if she doubts you, send her here and we'll straighten her out.

lol8[1].gif no offense to your friend's lady but many women can't even dress themselves and now they're dressing the men... that is more of a costume than a tux.

Any similar bags like this: http://www.jcrew.com/mens_category/JCrewingoodcompany/Billykirk/PRDOVR~34005/34005.jsp Would prefer if it was ~$200.
