I like the brown one.  Especially if the shirt is light blue.

thanks mimo, it's great that this site has posters like you, sadly so many are in ignore mode

Im ordering some MTM dress shirts. I followed the video tutorials and had my gf measure the tough to measure place. 

 

it turns out my shoulder (measured from end of shoulder bone to opposite end of shoulder bone) is 16.25". Is that way too narrow for someone with a 41" chest and 15.5" neck? 

 

it's hard to answer that question, i understand that. but the guy at the shirt company asked me if im sure cause someone with the rest of measurements "should" have 19" shoulders...

 

uchh, this is such a crapshoot with this online mtm stuff.

That sounds low to me. I share your neck and chest measurements, and my shoulders are around 18.5".

Does anyone have any idea what brand are these wingtips?

I am looking for another suit. Yes, I am a brand homer. Which designer would be the best for my physique? 165 lbs. 6ft tall. I've have 2 suits from both E.Zegna and RLBL. I am currently considering Isaia but don't know too much about them. I think Brioni and Kiton are out of my budget and TF's lapels are too big. I tried Isaia this weekend and I found them very nice and the fit to be just right. They'll just have to "pinch" a little around the waist. Nice patterns too and no boring solid colours. Pull the trigger or just go with RLBL solid...again.

I'm thinking of getting a peacoat, and I've been looking at the PRL Academy Pea coat (80% wool - link below).

 

One example of where I can get one of these is from Ebay, as they don't stock it at polo.com now. (starting at USD 300 in my size - L)

 

I know vintage peacoats from Vintage Trends or the like is probably as good or better than the PRL one, but with this I know what I'm getting. So when does it normally appear on the site and when does it go on sale? I know it was priced superlow around christmas I think. If you have any other good alternatives in the same pricerange (about 250-300$) from a store that ships internationally or Ebay seller, I would consider that as well.

Dude, seriously, with a blue suit and white shirt, you could pick any tie in the world. It's totally a matter of personal preference.

Hi Can I get an opinion on these Loake Shoes called Loake Druiit?

I tend to like the shoes, but in Norway other people on a forum called it ugly, and that it looked like immigrant style/not ment positively. shog[1].gif

What do you think? I like the originality and the size.

Do you think it is ugly? Not worth the money?

Im thankful for your opinion.

It was more of a general remark(i know all three ties i posted are commonly approved, so i wondered what the general preference here would be), so my post was more thanking mimo who helps people/responds to posts regularly.

In that price range, Sterlingwear of Boston would be my #1 choice for a peacoat. They've been the official manufacturer of peacoats for the US Navy for nearly half a century. Made in the USA. Wide variety of styles, fabrics, and sizes. Yeah, definitely the "go to" place for a $300 peacoat. And they even ship internationally.

Most of my ties are polyester.  They are all ties I bought in Honduras about 10 years ago and were purchased as a 20 year old with no sense of style, in fact I was mostly trying to get old polyester and the only two silk ties I have were given to me. 

 

The ties on the left are all polylester.  The right top is a hand woven wool tie, and the bottom two on the right are silk.  So I have a couple of questions.

 

1.  Are any of these appropriate for a job interview? 

 

2.  Should I just throw some away?

 

3.  (Don't kill me.  I have searched around but can't find much good info on ties as a nice primer, other than what to wear with what)  What is the difference in a $5 ebay 100% silk tie and a tie that costs $100.

 

4.  Should you get different tie lengths for your height and neck?

 

5.  If I sew my own ties, what are the things that set apart a nice tie from a not nice tie that I should add to making my own ties (that is assuming a $5 ebay one is not going to be worth it)

 

Thanks and sorry if these are stupid questions, I really did try and find some info first.

Which one should I go with?

1. Brooks Brothers' Golden Fleece at full retail minus 15% corporate discount

2. Isaia at full retail

1. The silk striped one

2. YES! All of them except the silk striped one and maybe those two bow-ties

3. Sometimes the $5 tie was $100 new, these are mostly used ties you are buying.

4. Only if you are very tall or short would you need a special tie length

5.
