Aside from that question, can anyone point me to a thread that discusses fabrics?  What are the normally suggested fabrics for business casual shirts and slacks?

I'm currently contemplating grabbing a Uniqlo linen jacket for casual summer use, though I'm in debate of which color to get. What do you think, SF? Gray, beige, or off-white?

Ask your question there, I assure you that there is constant talk about AE seconds in this thread. 10 pages is like 2 - 3 days of posts on that particular thread.

Let me ask this way: if I a shoe is comfortable while standing up and feels tight (not painfull, but still enough to cause a blister initially)), while walking, can I safetly assume it will break in eventually?

What material (suede vs. boxcalf) have a greater chance to break in sucsessfully?

The shoes are breaking your feet in. I know, mind blown.

Also, snug has only 1 g.

Thx

I am a Canadian who wants to buy a pair of Alden Cordovan PTBs, and I can only get them through Brooks Brothers in Canada.   I was wondering if Alden will restore the BB shoes when the time comes for resoling?

resoling is no rocket science. there were rumours that they change their recraft policy. have a look in the alden thread. people are very helpful there.

Pretty different styles there. Do you want a more traditional or an extremely modern cut? Need to settle on what look you're going for before you start worrying about who to buy from.

Thanks.  It's gonna be a work suit and I work in Wealth Preservation / Retirement... so a bit more Traditional but I don't want it to be huge and boxy.  I think the Brooks Brothers REGENT fits more of an athletic build like I have so I hope it's a bit tapered in the pants too.   And I think Thick as Thieves might be too extremely modern like you said for me and they are more for a skinnier body type.

 

That being said I was interested in Thick as Thieves but since I can't see them before hand it feels like too much uncertainty...

 

Any thoughts on the Navy Regent Saxon or the Navy Regent Solid?

 

See attachment...

I have questions on shirt (dress and casual) sizing when I buying them online (i.e. not tailor made, or buy in shop).

Now I know that since I have a 22.5 inch p2p. my coat p2ps should be 23.5-24.5 inches (approximately, could be higher).

Is there a similar rule for shirts? Say for example would my shorts be at around 23 inch p2p?

In addition, is there any good measurement guide to buying shorts online?

Thanks in advance.

I currently own a couple suits but I have not altered them in any way. They fit ok enough but I'm thinking of getting a bespoke suit.

 

I have an opportunity to get a bespoke suit at a reputable shop for ~1000€. They will use Carlos Barbera 150's super.

 

Worth it at that price right?
