OK, thanks for the vote of confidence. It fits me like no other jacket I have, and it feels so regal, for lack of a better term.  I love wearing it,  but I see newer pieces with slightly less wide peaked lapels on DB's.

To hell with the trends ! I am not fashion, I am style !

Thanks guys !!

Honest opinion please. Does my beloved Canali DB 6X2 look a bit dated? Specifically the lapel width. Thanks. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)


For my eyes, it looks dated, from both the style and the color. Though the lapel width is not necessary the indicator (Tom Ford has a bunch of huge lapel designs last winter). I would be interested to see how you can pull it off.

Which color should I get on for an athletic, mid brown haired northern European to wear to work over a suit in New York? I am thinking camel, as every girl I see seems to have a beige coat.

Thanks!

I say stone because it can go with black shoes too I think?

I think either would go with black, but I prefer the darker camel if those two were my choices.

Hi,

I have been giving the following Diesel jeans:

 

 

 

 

 

 

But am unsure what footwear would go best wit them?

 

Im a 27 year old man and usually were mid-blue denim jeans with dark brown boat shoes, but not too sure they will go well with thee jeans?

if not, what other footwear could i use?

 

i will be wearing these jeans with casual shirts, maybe a plain (gray/navy/black) sweater/cardigan too

 

will be fore evening and weekend casual wear, to the shops, to the pub/cinema/out with friends

I'm buying some Wolverine 1000 Miles in Brown and I want to get my first legit pair of denim to go with the boots and be usable in a wide variety of looks. I like a slimmer leg fit, living in Brooklyn and all, as long as it's not too extreme (and my slightly more muscular build makes it easy to go extreme there). Any suggestions? Either on brands/styles, or on NYC stores to visit?

Nope. Hard to tell just on hanger. Crisp white shirt, looks brilliant.

Wear a great pair of suedes. C&j's Belgrave in Polo Bown suede are beautiful and a great differing look on your feet than boat shoes.

Some boots!

My dad's older Ferragamo's (Studio Line, so theyre the cheaper ones.) I know theres a lot of hate for square toed shoes, but are these passable?

I'm deciding whether I should keep them, or just sell them to the nearest thrift shop.

Anyone have experience with J. Crew's suits? Friend is looking for an "affordable" 3-piece suit, and of course does not want to go bespoke no matter how many recommendations I make. Can anyone recommend alternatives to the J.Crew? He's looking for a classic mid-grey 3-piece.

I'm 5" 5' (and a little bit overweight) and I always went for plain shirts or vertically lined striped shirts. It was said that shirts with checks on it would make me look wide and short. I'm considering to buy this shirt:





What effect do you guys think this shirt will have on me? Would it make me look short or bulky?
post #18105 of 31077
I don't think that kind of that kind of checks will make you look specially wide. Wide horizontal stripes are the ones to avoid, I think.
Still, more important than the checks would be that the shirt fits you well: not bulky around the belly and not tight either.
I have a "little" belly myself and found (since joining SF) that slim fit shirts make me look thinner than normal shirts with a lot of cloth bulking over the pants.
Still, I'm not expert of any kind. You should try it and trust your eye.
