Regarding loafers... included in this post are a few ebay postings for used loafers. I was curious as to your opinions about them. Please respond with which one you think is the best of the group if you have a free moment.

 

 

Thank you very much. I appreciate all the replies I've gotten on this forum so far. It's a big help. Feel free to just respond with the number (1-7).

 

1) http://www.ebay.com/itm/200850233276

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
7 are the ones I have, but am thinking about getting rid of for one of the other options.

Hey. Just purchased a pair of loafers and I'm wondering what kind of clothes I can wear with these loafers in terms of casual / something a little more formal. Accidentally posted a thread about it and then saw this thread. Thanks.

Need to get a few alterations to a navy blazer I got and looking at around how much these things will/should cost:

1) Shortening the sleeves
2) Changing the buttons to brown horn

Hi does anyone know where I can order, or find something very similar to this jumper? 

 

Or better yet, if a tailor could reproduce it for me, for the best fit? I'm in Bangkok at the moment and I'm getting a suit made by a great tailor so I'm thinking of showing him the photo.. is this the kind of thing a tailor could reproduce; its a little different to the normal suits and shirts they seem to do.

Welcome to literally everything in my wardrobe.

Horn buttons will cost about $10-15 for the buttons (depending on # of sleeve buttons), and probably $1 a piece to get sewn on. I just had this done with a thrifted blazer and got the buttons here.

You can wear anything with these except a suit. Others will tell you you can wear them with a suit, but don't.

Absolutely this.

+1 on Alden. I am a fan, especially of their shell cordovan leather.

Shortening the sleeve from the wrist about $10 per sleeve. From the shoulder can be much more expensive.

Replacing the buttons themselves only about a dollar or two per button. The cost to purchase the buttons varies depending on source.

EDIT - When I replace buttons I always ask the tailor to "double button" those buttons I'll be buttoning on a regular basis. So for example, on my overcoat I have the front buttons attached to smaller buttons on the back. I find that this offers greater strength and makes it less likely the button will come loose at some point in the future, while also putting less stress on the fabric itself. Actually, I have no idea if that's true but I like to think it is.

In this instance I sewed the new buttons on myself, but you get the idea.

Do you think the lapels on this jacket look dated?

Not at all.
