There's always the SF-darling SNS Herning.

Good idea, I think a local retailer carries some SNS Herning. I'll stop by their shop to check out their sweaters.

 

Do you know a good online retailer for SNS Herning? Because I think the store here maybe carries like 3-4 different models.

I just purchased some trousers today, but I am second guessing the purchase now.  Are they "in good taste" being a linen/wool blend 55/45% and pair well with navy or beige based odd jackets?  They look slightly chunky on the model and he is a bit taller/slimmer than I am. I do need some more mid-grey pants and thought linen would be nice for spring/summer weather  if it ever hits (live in Wisconsin), but now wondering if I would be better of getting a gabardine pair now and a flannel in the fall for more versatility.

Uhh, they look kind of old mannish, to be honest. Maybe Bonobos?

What would be the best color combination utilizing knitted wool tie? The tie's desaturated brown, almost khaki in color. It was a present; APC, very nice tie in itself. I live in the tropics so no tweed etc, but heavy cotton might be OK. I would say very light blue or pale yellow shirt? Or probably checked/ gingham with a bit of earth tones? As for the jacket, all I've got is a navy double breasted worsted wool....

got this. fits great. love the color. but is it worth 399? please advise. i know there's a lot of hate on china made stuff.
post #20948 of 33081
There's nothing wrong with made in China. SuitSupply generally gets good marks around here.
post #20949 of 33081
^^ yeah, I mean you've already said it fits well and you love the colour, so you tell us if you thinks that's worth $399. Sounds pretty reasonable to me.

Any brands I should be looking at? Filson is an obvious one, any other brands?


I'm a fan of Saddleback Leather.  Some other cool companies to look into are Hard Graft, Tanner Goods, Kenton Sorenson USA.  I have a co-worker who swears by Duluth Pack. 

I only own Saddleback Leather and Tumi leather bags so if you have any questions about them I can try to help out.  Otherwise, happy shopping!

Because brown is a neutral color, brown / khaki can go with most colors.  I would personally go for a regular to darker shade blue as it would give the lighter khaki color a stark contrast, which could look really nice. For more insights, you can visit my blog at http://suitupdressup.wordpress.com

Thank you for the input.
I will have a look at the companies.

Cross-posted from C&J thread:

The hook eyelets of my Islays are ripping my pant hems apart. Does anyone else have this problem when wearing these boots (or any that have the hook eylets)? Any recommendations to avoid this (hem tape or something like that)?

Quite dandy-ish for Wisconsin, but I'd go for a slimmer model. Other than the fit, the material is good for summer wear. I love linen/wool blends. Maybe try some Lands' End next time? I haven't tried their tailored fit yet, but I know that the leg opening is 8", and that's neither too slim, nor too wide.

One of my shirts has an annoying tab collar. I'm sick of it. Can I cut it off with scissors/a serrated blade, or will the fabric fray? It's a pretty rugged shirt to begin with, so it doesn't have to be perfect.
