More of a tailor-etiquette question: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
I guess my dad is going to pay, because he wants to avoid saying no..
i prefer flap to patch.
I know the shoes are below SF standards - I would have liked a better sole, but I really like the design, and the future mrs. said that they were the best of the ones I had to pick from... Out of which some were suede... and most were cap toes or wingtips.....
The belt is the correct width for a "dress" belt. It is not "streetwear" size...
I've tried on alot of suits the past few weeks and even had one Made to Measure.
From Brooks Brothers, Armani, Joseph Abboud, Z Zegna, Boss Black... And I even bought a Made to Measure Thick as Thieves suit which came out incredibly wrong beyond repair and unwearable but they were nice enough to REFUND my money. The owner took my measurements in person so it was their fought. I was extremely disappointed because I was so looking forward to this suit, but at the very least I want to GIVE Thick as Thieves PROPS for refunding me. THANK YOU!!!
That being said... I know everyone here for the most part does NOT like Boss suits... but the Suit that so far fits me best is the Boss Black Jam Sharp.
And at this point I want to buy it (it will be on sale for about $500) but everyone keeps saying don't buy Boss. Any thoughts?
Also there Boss Black has a similar cut suit called the Hour / Sharp (Dark Grey) that is normally $1,000 on sale for $660.
And I like the Hour / Jam even more then the Boss NAVY since I'm looking for Dark Grey / Charcoal.
So does anyone have a good Boss story that could re-assure me to buy it or should I just run away from Boss?
What I'm thinking is BOSS makes really good fitting suits and good style... but perhaps the quality is NOT good and doesn't last?
Is that why so many do NOT like BOSS?
I recently bought a pair of suede loafers from BM, which were half a size too big (compared to my usual size UK6) but they fit snugly when purchased. Now, especially after I have put in shoe trees (woodlore's ultra S), they have expanded to the point of being uncomfortable. My other shoes (leather loafers from moreschi) have also experienced the same expansion, though not as severe. Other than utilizing insoles, is there any way of 'shrinking' the shoes and prevent the heel area from expanding or will they adapt to my feet as time goes by?
Thanks in advance.
Thanks a lot for the comments. Well, the shoes should be for everyday wear - mostly to school. I usually wear chinos or jeans, paired with shirt or polo (in colder weather sweater or jacket). Until now I used black oxfords as my main shoes, but it is not very comfortable and way too formal, so I need some casual yet stylish alternative.
