Hello. I'm wondering if anyone got any idea what jacket Yuri Boyka (Scott Adkins) is using in this clip:

Also, any idea where I can buy a shirt looking like this?

Thanks for the responses guys. I was definitely eyeing epaulet and will check out Howard yount for sure.

As I stated, looking for versatile, most likely basic/staple fabric trousers/slacks, hopefully below 250, but knowing me I'll go up to 300 if I find something I like.

Thanks again.

Very noob question. What is the point of a 3-roll-2? In light of Bond, have noticed all his jackets are like that.

What does a 3-2 offer that a strict 2 button doesn't? Just preference?

Just preference. Not sure of the history of it, but it was traditionally part of the trad sack suit. Most true 3-roll-2s aren't meant to have the top button buttoned at all--the suit binds and looks weird if you do.

Are Christmas Sweaters tacky for the occasion? I'm looking at few sweaters at topman which are christmasy but seem like they can be styled on...

I'm not a fan.

In moderation, at appropriate times and on appropriate occasions, some Christmas sweaters may have their place. But they can easily become tacky when overdone or when the season for them has passed. They're sort of like outdoor Christmas lights that way.

(Admittedly, I worship the Flying Spaghetti Monster. But I do have a certain fondness for Festivus.)

Don't know if this is the correct forum, but are George or Anthony Cleverleys worth the premium?  They are about

the same as St Crispins in some cases, but their RTW is more expensive even than G&Gs MTO porgramme!  Is there

something that makes them woth the price?

anyone have a heads up on where to find some nice oxfords online?  I'm specifically looking for plain pink and light blue with button down collars.  I'm shopping on a budget relatively speaking so something around $50-60 is ideal.  Looking for quality items though (obviously).  Shipping to canada would be necessary.

 

I've looking around on BB but found nothing and the sale is now over.  Fit is ideally a small but i take everything to the tailors anyways.

Try Kent Wang, although it's above your budget. I'd say get one better shirt than one poor-fitting shirt.

I'm pretty sure that Brooks does carry OCBD's in both light blue and pink. (I'm pretty sure of it because I own such shirts, myself). And I'm reasonably confident that there will be another sale next week, probably on Black Friday (23 November, that being the day after Thanksgiving and the traditional start of the Christmas shopping season).

Otherwise, I have some Lands End OCBD's that are perfectly adequate, and which cost me considerably less than your $50-60 limit. They're not quite as nice as the BB shirts, but there's nothing fundamentally wrong with them, either.

I'm sure there are many other sources of pink and light blue OCBD's; such shirts are pretty much staples, and for that reason are widely available. Perhaps if you could provide some more detail as to what exactly you're looking for that you haven't been able to find, it would help narrow down the list of suggested sources. For example, do you prefer a more traditional fit, or a very close-fitting shirt? Do you insist upon non-iron, or "must iron?" Is there some particular type of cotton you want? Some particular type of buttons?

It's somewhat concerning that you state that "fit is ideally a small," as nearly any of the better (or even many of the lesser) OCBD's are not sold as, for example, S-M-L. Such sizing is more typical of sportswear, and OCBD's are usually sized as dress shirts. That is, they are identified by neck size and sleeve length. So you might see something like 15/32, or even 15.5/32-33, but not "Small" or "Medium."

I picked up an interesting casual shirt by Salvatore Piccolo -- the label describes it as "Japanese fabrics tailored in Napoli." It's a kind of chambrayed-denim (forgive me on the lingo, I know nothing of these denim fabrics). I like the light weight, soft hand, and the tone of blue is flattering. The problem is the collar is awfully skimpy.

 

Does anyone who works with Geneva or CEGO in NYC know if these kinds of refined denim cloths are easy to come by or something they might have? I want to get something made with a more substantial collar.

I'd agree with Michael- Lands End is the perfect solution here. Good reliable basics.
