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.

(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

Hello,

 

Brand new member here, been stalking the forum for the past 2 days and I have a lot of questions to ask and I feel powerless and would like your help.

 

Disclaimer: I've only found this forum after i bought my shoe so here goes:

 

  • I have bought a pair of Bruno Magli (i know i know you guys hate it haha) "Raging" this past weekend and it is being shipped to me
    http://shop.nordstrom.com/s/bruno-magli-raging-slip-on/2953850
  • I have only had time to glance and semi read, but there's a lot of articles to go through and there are many opinions so I figured I can get it consolidated with the experts here
  • My goal is to figure out, what I should do to my shoe, from beginning to end to keep it nice, etc. 

 

Here goes:

 

  1. I believe this shoe is 100% leather on the top, rubber on the bottom, that's it right? (very important, please confirm)
  2. When I first get the shoes out, I'll try them on briefly around the house, but after that, then what? I heard that you're supposed to insert shoe trees and then "apply some shoe conditioner all over the shoes." Is this correct? If so, what conditioner? can someone please give me a direct link to it (not a generic description)?
  3. After i let it dry naturally, i shall wipe it once with a "dry cloth", but what kind of cloth exactly should i use? can you show me an actual product for this cloth? terricloth? random dishwashing towel?
  4. Do i then "apply a layer of shoe cream"? what is shoe cream? better yet, can you show me a product for this? Is this redundant if i already have shoe conditioner? How long should i leave it for? What do i use to wipe it off?
  5. What next? i heard about brushing the shoes now that the cream is off, but with what brush? i heard horsehair, any ideas? direct link to the product? why brush shoe if its fresh off the box/been conditioned?
  6. Polish the shoe? if so, how exactly? with what equipment? I read from GQ i should just take it to a nordstrom to do it. should i? I don't want to F up my brand new shoe by using the wrong brush/polish
  7. Wax the shoe? if so, how exactly? with what equipment?

 

etc, etc

 

you see, this may seem second nature to you, but if you can explain each tiny step to me as how i can take care of my shoe i'll be forever grateful. I have a 1.5 yr old colehan that I didn't do any of that and I can see the black is a little bit fading (just a little bit) and i don't want my first "getting to the top tier shoe" follow the same path.

 

Sorry it's a long post, but in reality, it's really a small question.

 

Thanks so much in advance!

I got a couple Zegna coats at a thrift store and there are some some threads or something that are prickly pointing outwards from the shoulder.

I have pulled a couple out and they are like 6" long and they are some kind of plastic thread.

Anyone know what they are? Is it bad to pull them out?
