You could be buying them a size too large.

For context, I am 6'4" 190 lb and almost always wear a medium sweater.

Other options, beside the ralph lauren, would be uniqlo, jcrew (which has a slim fit in addition to their regular fit) or even brooks brothers when on sale. One of the downsides of cheaper wool sweaters will be pretty bad pilling that will happy pretty quickly. You can get "merino" wool sweaters at target for about $20, but you get approximately 3 wears before they look like sh*t.

I would say wait for a BB sale and try and grab one of those. If you have a store you can try them on in, so much the better.

Also, in general JCrew > BR.

What is a stylistic way to keep your ears warm while still matching a smart cashmere or wool topcoat?

post #20121 of 32173
Thanks for the advice cptjeff & E,TF. Both make some good points. I've considered a linen or linen woll blend as well. I'll look into both when I finally decide to pull the trigger on a summer suit. I can see how cotton would be more casual though. I think it would be ok for most of the outdoor weddings I have been to.
Thanks again.

Thanks again for the help. What's the best kind of button up to wear under  a sweater ? I mean in terms of collar. Are oxford collar's the best for that ?

post #20123 of 32173
You're confusing collars (button down, spread, cutaway) with cloth (Oxford cloth, end-on-end, twill).

Earmuffs, hair, or a massive freaking lapel that you pop.

And the answer is, without a tie, a button down collar, like you'd find on your typical Oxford cloth shirt (OCBD stands for Oxford Cloth Button Down, by the way, Button Down referring to the collar). With a tie, anything works.

What type of Balmoral boots do you prefer?

 

 

 

I'm not sure whether the first (Edward Green Galway) is called Balmoral or not due to its open lacing. I just want to know which type do you like in the three types given. The significant difference is the material of the ankle part (leather, grain leather and suede). I would go for the suede but is it right that the whole leather boot is more formal than the others? And the grain leather is the most casual amid three types?

I like the second the best out of the three. Not thrilled about the different leather on the first and the derby construction. You are right that the first boots are not balmorals.

What conditioner should I use for my Allen Edmonds? I was thinking of going with the Allen Edmonds conditioner/cleaner. Any suggestions?
post #20129 of 32173
Saphir Renovateur.
post #20130 of 32173
Saphir is somewhat the gold standard, but the AE stuff isn't bad. Much easier to find, as well...
