Traditionally, wearing suit trousers short enough to show some ankle just makes the wearer look like a clueless yokel. Although I'll allow that wearing, say, a pair of chinos slightly on the short side can sometimes be acceptable.

Of course, one is free to accept or reject whatever standards one likes, and to dress accordingly. (Lord knows I find some current fashion trends to be absolutely horrible, when they're not outright laughable. But to each his own, and all that.)

Ok so I was minding my business wandering the streets of New York when I found myself all of a sudden in one of these no name stores with the sign SAMPLE SALE. This one however was having a close-out sale.

They carried suits from Silvio Bresciani (Never heard of the brand) and other no name Italian designers in super 150 on sale between 100-500 bucks (Original prices ranged between 500-1200, the cheaper ones obviously being fused). I talked to one of the sales person and he told me that a some retail group called SRG Group supplies all their suits. , but I am curious about a few things.

1. Does anyone know about these kinds of stores? How legit are they ?

2. If these suits are made in Italy like they claim (Highly doubt that it is nor do I really care.. as long as the quality is there), how can they charge those kinds of prices? The suits fit really well, the fabric was ok... but I am highly skeptical about the authenticity and quality (They were also carry suits from Ferre, Versace and Womens clothing from D&G.

What do you think of this Etro quilted jacket? I bought it @Yoox but not sure if I keep it. I like the corduroy lapels. My only concern is it maybe looks a a bit shabby... 

 

Stitching and overall quality is really high. I will be wearing it on colder days outside over my shirt.

Gentlemen(ladies): Yea or Nay:

Mr. B for Aldo (wait, keep reading) boot, dark brown color, leather in/out and sole. On sale at Aldo store north of Yonge/Dundas in Toronto for $109 CAD + tax. Many sizes available (no 41). They seem to run 1-2 European sizes larger than what I'm used to.

The lengthy thread on SF about this line seems legit: http://www.styleforum.net/t/266772/mr-bs-blake-boots-vs-grenson-sharp-fred

These remind me of AE Dalton, and I intend to wear them like this: http://www.thestyleblogger.com/6153/1-piece5-ways-allen-edmonds-wingtip-brogue-boots/

My constraints: Shoe selection in Canada sucks, and this is about the maximum I can afford to pay for a shoe at this time.

170

edit: all colors except cognac available online for $109 http://www.aldoshoes.com/eng/storeSection/redirect.cfm?sectionID=b2c/search/productSearchResultsnexTopia.cfm&ckey=CA&keywords=blake

Do most people here wear wool pants every day?

For summer cotton is best.

Related question: Do most people wear dress clothing every day? Do you wear suit jackets 7 days a week? Trousers/dress pants 7 days a week?

Hey fellas,

I received the following BBBF tie from a friend. I was wondering if it would be possible to match this interesting pattern with a navy suit? If so, what color/pattern shirt would go best with it, in your opinions?

When working, I wear coat and tie. On weekends, shorts and a polo this time of year. Or linen pants and a polo.

Coat and tie does not always mean wool pants, sometimes it means khakis and blazer. But large percentage of the MC crowd have professional jobs where they wear coat and tie to work every day. A pretty fair number work in dressy business casual places- usually a sportcoat, but tie not required, for example.

So my graduation is coming up soon and the gowns are black. I plan on wearing a white shirt, maroon tie (maybe patterned/striped, not sure yet), and charcoal/grey pants. Does that sound good?

And I'm unsure on what color socks and shoes to wear. Any advice?

Sounds good to me. Unless you plan on taking off your gown for a significant amount of time, the focus will be your cap and gown and your degree. Because of the nature of commencement, no point in trying to be ostentatious. What you have suggested will work just fine.

Both look okay to me, but the white suit's higher inseam definitely makes the look more casual.
