I'm not the most sartorially savvy on this forum, but there are two issues I have with that.

 

It won't both cover your ass and fit in the shoulders/chest.

The jacket itself makes me want to cry.

Does Aspesi fit true to size? It's a raincoat that i'll buy over internet.

Are Polo Ralph Lauren in XS men size fakes? Because the official webshop doesn't sell PRL in that size.

Not an answer to your question, but FWIW I have bought 31 inch sleeve BB OCBD's at a BB outlet and you can not get those on the website. It is possible that RL makes the shirts for another market or that the shirts are deadstock.

Is this a trick question?

And I concur with the above comments about the jacket and the shirt sleeves. Showing a bit of cuff (a quarter of an inch) is cool. An inch looks goofy. By the way, does the jacket look ok when it's fastened? It looks as though it might be a little tight.

It's a cashmere sweater. It could be possible that Ralph Lauren makes stuff dedicated to the Asian market, because the guys out there are usually smaller than other markets. But is normal that brands difference the markets with sizes?

I am going to a Christmas Party at my golf club next week. Very old school type club, and this is a very nice event where all men wears suits. I have a Navy BB Fitz suit that I plan on wearing. I would like opinions on shirt, tie and shoes. I have both walnut calf and black allen Edmond strands and since it is an evening event, I assumed black shoes would be more appropriate. I expect many are going to tell me I should wear a more formal cap toe shoe, but I am just starting to get my act together on my wardrobe, so take it easy on me. I was thinking white shirt,French cuffs, but not sure about tie and colour of shoes? I realize there are plenty of options, but you guys are the experts, give me your opinion .

Might anyone know how to remove 'dimples' from the collar of an OCBD Lands End shirt? I have tried ironing with a large amount of pressure, spray water, spray starch, and high steam setting on the iron to no avail. It has been hard to accurately capture this with a picture but perhaps this will appear familiar to someone who may be able to suggest a solution. Thanks.

Suggestions on an affordable overcoat? Going to NYC on Friday and will be wearing a suit and tossed my old crummy overcoat last year when I was doing some spring cleaning.

It appears to be a sportcoat with short sleeves, probably for tropical climates.  If the fabric was good and the length was post-posterior, would it ever be acceptable for someone to wear something like this?  With a collared short-sleeve shirt, mind.

NO NO NO

I think they aren't as square as some of the things I've seen online, but not sure what to classify them as and determine where to go from here. Thanks for the help!



They're fine if you think they're fine. I would prefer something more rounded, but I'm sure the author of the article you read was referring to hideous bicycle-toed glued junk, not shoes like yours.

I have three decent ties in navy; a repp tie (I think...) from Edsor, a solid navy tie from Eton and a pin dot tie from G&H on its way in the mail.

(Eton is probably not "decent" by SF standards, but I picked it up for 15 USD and the tie felt quite nice)

I'm also considering a navy grenadine tie from Sam Hober (or midnight blue) and was wondering what you think about the versatility of such a tie. 

As you've probably understood I like ties that are navy/blue. tongue.gif

But are there other "staples" that you could recommend?

I've seen the tie list, gotten some inspiration from the Soporific Tie Porn-thread and other sites but I'm still a bit unsure of what my next purchase should be.

PS: I seldom wear a suit and when I do it's for a somewhat formal setting.

A navy grenadine is a beatiful, versatile tie.

Really, if you don't wear ties often, but when you do it's in a formal setting, then a solid navy, a navy pindot, and a navy repp stripe is probably all you need. Perhaps get a sollid navy twill for daytime and a solid navy with more of a satin finish for night-time.

Other than that, IMO it's up to you to express yourself. This is where you're supposed to have fun and wear something (within the bounds of good taste, which you will definitely find on the Tie Porn thread) YOU think is beautiful.

EDIT: I almost forgot, some knit ties to wear with sport coats are mandatory! teacha.gif
