Definitely not suit. You can wear pink shirt, tie and PS and a dark suit.

Styleforum Top Pickspost #16007 of 317347/15/12 at 9:15ampost #16008 of 317347/15/12 at 11:57amThrifted this yesterday. I'm keeping, but for my own interest:
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
Thanks!post #16009 of 317347/15/12 at 12:06pmpost #16010 of 317347/15/12 at 12:30pm
Absolutely.Quote:Also, I am in need/wanting some loafers/drivers shoes. I am young; 20, so I don't particularly want completely leather loafers/tassal, but I am in love with the Sloop Slipon look - http://store.asuitablewardrobe.net/thesloopslipon.aspx - but I don't think I could pull that off in my kind of crowd, as weird as that sounds.
For these, I was thinking around under $200/under $150. Obviously I don't have a very deep pocket!
A bit off topic..but I'm Australian, and summer seems to be creeping around the corner, or more the fact I am looking forward to it.
So I am looking for a nice pair of light, white linen pants, with a slight taper, a light blue would work as well.
Price: under $150.
Try some more traditional camp mocs rather than those stylized ones.
LL Bean's run about $100 I think. Other traditional preppy brands will make them, I don't know what's available down under.
As for linen pants, Old Navy puts out a pair every spring, generally based off their classic fit khakis, but I don't know if you have them down there. The quality is hardly gonna knock your socks off, but they fit pretty well and they work nicely to just beat around in.post #16011 of 317347/15/12 at 12:36pmpost #16012 of 317347/15/12 at 4:04pmpost #16013 of 317347/15/12 at 5:16pm
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.post #16014 of 317347/15/12 at 6:49pmpost #16015 of 317347/15/12 at 7:29pmQuote:
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.post #16016 of 317347/15/12 at 8:02pmQuote:
I'd be more concerned with appearance than durability. Cheap silk looks bad and it gets worse the cheaper you go.
I understand not wanting to drop much on a one-use item, but there's some minimum threshold for a decent item.post #16017 of 317347/15/12 at 8:57pmQuote:
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.post #16018 of 317347/15/12 at 10:36pm^Wearing a blue tie with a tuxedo, as I'm presuming is the plan here, is a really bad idea.
Still, it's your wedding. Don't cheap out on a fairly cheap item. There should be some decent ones at Nordstrom Rack, or you can go with tie bar. Or you could shell out $40 instead of $15 at a place like the Cordial Churchman.
Seriously, don't cheap out on your attire. Not getting top of the line is fine, but spend at least enough that you're not wearing crap. Think about what your fiancee is dropping on the dress, and then realize that on a percentage basis, a $5 tie versus a $50 one isn't gonna break the bank.post #16019 of 317347/16/12 at 12:06ampost #16020 of 317347/16/12 at 1:12amQuote:Originally Posted by repsakC
Thank you! Does that imply a high twist cloth will have a certain kind of hand/feel? I'm not familiar with fresco so I can't compare mentally the difference between it and flannel. Would this have any effect on the way it drapes/is there any conventional wisdom about buying pieces with higher vs. lower twist?
Yes, as cptjeff pointed out above, cloths woven with high twist yarn, such as fresco, have a more open weave which allows a little air to flow through and so they wear cooler. Any suit advertising its high twist cloth is probably intended for warm weather. The looser weave also gives the cloth a bit more texture, and they feel different too, a bit harder and scratchier than worsted. They hold a crease well and create a suit with quite a sharp silhouette. Imagine a continuum that goes flannel - worsted - fresco. From left to right it would go from low to high twist, soft to hard feel, fuzzy to sharp silhouette, cool weather to warm weather.
