Does this shirt look like a twill or an oxford to you? I ordered a twill on Moderntailor, but it looks like an oxford to me:

Oxford cloth is a basket weave.

Notice the diagonal line (wale) in the fabric, most visible in the edge of the cuff. That is a characteristic of twill, not of oxford cloth.

Alright, thanks. I see it in the cuffs now. I just couldn't really see it in the body.

What type of tie construction is this? Made of one piece of silk with no lining or tipping - just like a traditional seven fold - but without the requisite number of folds. An unlined 3 fold? I'm just stumped because I've never seen this...

My eBay package went "out for delivery" at 9 am yesterday. It's being shipped with USPS and the mail already came sans package. Should I be worried?

Is it priority mail? Priority is usually done by a different mail carrier than your normal mail delivery. Also, was their signature confirmation? they may have it at your local PO. I would call them

I believe it is. So that's a different route than my normal mail courier?

I would like to know what do you guys think about wool and cashmere blend? Is it suitable for warm country? I've read some forums and some gentlement said it doesn't hold the crease well in the trouser. Any advice? thanks.

It depends where you are. Often times priority or express mail gets delivered by someone else. I recently had one of the office employees run a priority package over - I only live about 15 blocks from the post office.

Also, unless they overnighted it or you live very close to the seller, it may take longer than two days. Priority is typically guaranteed in three.

I really want this jacket,

but I have no idea where it's from

175851560420380831_rt4eyu1b_f.jpg

anyone got any ideas?

whenever i look for red plaid i get incredibly loud tartans etc.

finding the fabric alone would be enough, I could get it tailored

Is there a brand for dress shoes called "Gravitti"?

I saw it at a high-end store in my town, and wanted to do some more research on it online, but got nothing. I believe I am misspelling it.

It's either Isaia or Kiton.

A quick question about the shoe anatomy. Is there a technical term for shawls on shoes (under tassels in the first image, and below lace holes in second and third image). I assume now they are purely for decorations, but anyone knows the origin behind it.

 

Also, does anyone think those vintage Justin boots (last two images) will be suitable dress boots to be worn with a suit? Thanks.
