Regarding lapel pins and boutonnières as seen on sportcoats from L.B.M. 1911, Lardini, Isaia and Tombolini. Keep or remove?

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?
