Just spot a cheap Harris Tweed Jacket on ebay icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gificon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif
http://www.ebay.com/itm/200851012585?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2649
Since I just start on MC, what type of pant/shirt should I wear with this jacket?

The sellers mentioned "Skinny" on the title of the post? Is it possible that there is a skinny fit version of Vintage Harris Tweed Jacket?

Thanks

I think the skinny tie trend has come along with a fairly large percentage of woolen ties, which is why we feel woolen ties should be skinnier.  The trend has been skinny woolen ties with checked shirts etc....

I obviously tried google but it lumps them all together. I'm not trying to drive somewhere to find all they have is women's clothing.
Also, I don't think that's true about them being only as good as the things they have when you're there. Some places have much higher standards than others and some focus more on women's clothes, some men's, and some both. It's not completely random.
I think it's a pretty valid question, the facepalm wasn't really necessary.

Hello,

 

I was wondering who here uses the mac method for their cordovans and what wax they use.

 

Thanks!

I feel like there's some SF etiquette that I'm not aware of. It seems like certain threads can go off on ridiculous tangents but if someone asks a question (usually a noob question like the ones I ask) they get flamed for it. The "good thrift/consignment shops in __" are a perfect example. Why do people get so angry when this question is asked (especially in the "thrift store bragging thread")?

Established members get bashed for such things too. Check out the derailment in WAYWRN; several hall monitors got involved.

Still, some might be in the assumption that a new person hasn't lurked enough (and done his due diligence in ensuring the answer to his question isn't out there).

this may be helpful as it has dozens of links, reviews, etc.

I wasn't even talking about my question specifically, I think I only asked in here which, I assume, would be the right place to ask. It's cool, I didn't mean you and I'm not upset about it either. I was more talking about the reaction to other people that asked the same type of question in the thrift thread. I'm in Philly, by the way, but thanks for the link anyway, I'm sure there's one for Philly too.
The reason I think the question gets asked so much (or at least the reason I asked it) is because there seems to be a lot of people that bring in a ton of great stuff and then a big dropoff between them and everyone else. I guess what I mean to say is "what's the secret?" Obviously nobody's going to give their whole bag of tricks away or else they wouldn't be doing as well as they are.. just looking for a pointer or two.

As a rule of thumb, pick stitching on a suit is a sign of quality right?

Edit - suit I am thinking of is a Lubiam 1911

How do Isaia shirts fit? The best fitting shirt I've worn was a Massimo Dutti one, so if anyone knows how Isaia compares (fit wise, I know the quality is miles apart), please help!

There are a lot of cheaper suits with machine pick stitching now. JAB has some truly awful pick sticking on some of their lines.

Nope. Pick stitching has shown up in all sorts of garbage suits. It's like working buttonholes. At one point, it may have only been seen on nicer suits... But then people latched onto it as a false indicator of quality--"oooh, only nice suits have working buttonholes/pick stitching!"--at which point every manufacturer started adding them. Means absolutely nothing now.
