The STP dealflyer that just came out today has 30% off and 99 cent shipping with no minimum order.  Not sure if that shipping price is valid to Canada though.

Also, why not have cuff links or hanky without a jacket?  This is one of my favourite looks http://s254.beta.photobucket.com/user/amp94596/media/61510Sunglasses_1725Web.jpg.html?filters%5bterm%5d=recent&filters%5bprimary%5d=images

You asked for opinions. I do not like the tie and do not like matched sets. Cuff links are fairly formal and meant to be worn with a suit. I'm not sure how you could wear a pocket square w/o a jacket. You should spend some time perusing the forum.

Oh, I wasn't trying to be rude, just asking for clarification on what you meant. 

I do appreciate your feedback :)

Can anyone help with overcoat recommendations?

Criteria:
- $1K or less
- No synthetic materials
- Prefer camel, grey also acceptable
- Does not fit like tent

It appears my coats did not make the move with me, so I am starting from scratch.

Also, if they are not, do Opening Ceremony's ones are? I clearly prefer Clarks, but you know, "gotta do what you gotta do"!




Good day to you gentlemen!

I have Clarks chukkas, basically same body as DB, The insoles is very thin so instead i bought a better insole and just put it in there and did not have to rip off the insoles that is included in the shoe. It will not be a problem just putting an insoles because CLARKS insoles are very thin and not supportive.

I agree with what you've been saying, but this statement is not true.
This might be the case for the US, but not everywhere in the world.
Cuff links arent that formal in Europe, especially not in the UK.

Bump :)

 

 

are these converse slim suitable for a 27 y/o's wardrobe?]

 

 

http://www.schuh.co.uk/mens-white-converse-slim-mono-ox/3401961070

 

 

As i mainly wear dark brown boat shoes for casual wear with jeans/chinos, casual shirts/sweaters, i want to get some footwear to replace my Adidas Stan Smith trainers - a classic plain white shoe

 

So was wondering what people think of the above converse slim trainers, for weekend/daytime casual wear (shops, cinema, restaurant, town shopping , friends, etc)  with denim jeans, chinos, cargos,and sweatpants,

 

they look quite versatile so could they be worn with a casual shirt, sweater/cardigan as well as a t-shirt & jacket?

 

- i just need a casual white shoe but not too sporty like trainers/sneakers are

 

also do they were a size big? e.g. im a size UK 8, so is size UK 9 more suitable?

 

thanks

OConnells is nice stuff, but is pretty trad, so it's not going to be the slimmest fitting. However, your tailor should be able to nip in the waist a bit.

Does anyone know where I can find a brown suede belt for about 70 or less?
Can't find any in any department stores around here. (only have Dillards, Belk, and JCP) And the ones I see online are more than I want to spend.
I'm a size 34 or 36 btw

Email them directly about their belts; great values.

Hi, suit and tie experts!

 

700

 

Do you know if the tie on the left guy is wrong or somehow weird looking?

If so, why did the director made the tie so "weird"? And what does that tie to the left and right symbolize?

 

It's for my film and litterature school assignment.

post #18313 of 30168

The big knot with a narrow spread collar is probably why he looks weird. He would get ribbed if he posted that in some of threads on here. I imagine it has more to do with the big knot being associated with 'big timers', and the collar is more of a blunder than an intentional choice. You might want to do some searching on the crap people write about so called 'power dressing'.

 

Think about their hair (head and face) and even the fact that he's wearing a three piece suit (and the other guy isn't) as well.

I'm 6'3 170, and have tons of problems finding clothes that I like the fit/look of.

Why do some thermals/t shirts give me the appearance of man boobs, even though I have none? Not every shirt, just every now and then I'll try something on, and boom.

What kind of boxers are best for wearing under skinnier clothes? I recently picked up some Levis 508s (tapered) and I'm still always struggling with my boxer briefs rolling up on the leg and causing discomfort. And when I wear skinny chinos (not too skinny, they fit fine in the waist) some of them still show a dreaded outline even though there's plenty of loose fabric. I'm thinking I need something that keeps me held in better. Any help appreciated. I really think it's a problem with the underwear, since I'm having problems even when wearing 508s. Same problem with my APC NS.
