1. Anyone know what to call this material? It's cotton, thin and very crepe-like.
2. For the canucks out there. This is a Harry rosen private label, Made in Italy. Any idea who the maker is? The label is faded beyond reading
Is this a good choice for a black tow tie to wear to my wedding? It has a little bit of a pattern, but I figure it shouldn't be noticeable.
If you don't think so, suggestions on another bow tie to get? Preferably something pretty inexpensive like this.
I'm ok with over $10. I probably will wear this so rarely that I'm not that concerned in durability though. As such, I'd rather not pay the $50+ I see on sites I can find them.
I would agree with Gibonius,
Anything less than $10 I would say would get you a very poorly weaved tie, and you wouldn't even know if its silk. For all you know, it could be polyester or microfibre. Tie Bar does decent ties for $15, they should last you a while and if GQ endorses them, you know that they're at least made of the silk they say they are made from. Plus, you never know when you may want to use the tie again. Go for a blue tie, chances are, you'll be able to use it more than once.
I'm new here. I didn't want to be a bother and open a new thread, but I have a few questions.
I bought this navy blazer yesterday for $10. I was thinking about wearing it to go out to dinner with the girlfriend or something more on the casual side. I’m in in my early 20’s. I’m still working on my wardrobe.
I plan on getting a better blazer when I can afford one.
My questions are:
First off all, is this blazer too short? If so, should I get rid of it? It was just $10 bucks.
As said, I’m thinking about wearing more casually to go out to dinner with this pair of jeans, does it look ok?
Should I wear a dress shirt and dress shoes, or sneakers and a polo shirt?
Here are two pictures to illustrate:
