Cr@p. I just realized I have the navy.

^ I was in the same position as you, college student here though wearing the same color suit and shirts

I picked a burgundy grenadine, black silk knit, and a navy/white pindot as my first three ties

 

Don't really like any of the ties you posted, navy being the exception maybe..different color dots would be better

Guess, the general consensus out of the 4 is the navy (which I already have) so I guess I saved some $$$ for another tie then. As for different color dots, I believe the dots have to match either your suit color or your shirt color...or maybe there is no such no and we can all do whatever we want if we look good.

Hey Gents!

 

As I've donated all my jeans to charity and only have chinos I need to do a denim haul next week!

 

I'm looking at going for 3 pairs of jeans - 1 Dark wash and 2 Distressed - All Slim or Skinny

 

My Question is what do I go for? (Let's assume they all fit equally well)

 

A. 3 pairs of Levi's @ an average of R699 each

 

B. 2 pairs of Levi's @ R699 and 1 pair of G-Star @ R1900

 

C. 2 pairs of Levi's @ R699 each and 1 pair of Diesel @ R2200

 

D. 2 pairs of Diesel @ R2200 average and 1 pair of G-Star @ R1900

 

E. 3 pairs of Diesel @ an average of R2200

 

F. 2 pairs of Diesel @ R2200 and 1 pair of G-Star @ R1900

You might be better off asking over in the Streetwear and Denim forum, than here in Classic Menswear.

Would you wear something like this, for casual-chic occasions?  Would you even buy something like this?

 

I like the cut, but is it too childish or baseball-shirt like?

Well, it's casual. I don't really see the "chic" part.

I suppose if I sometimes wore long-sleeve polo shirts or rugby shirts or sweatshirts, this would fall within my comfort zone. I wouldn't call it too childish or baseball shirt-like. I'm thinking it'd probably be worn with jeans, and I admit I'm not big on jeans, but maybe you do like to wear them.

It looks a little too slim-fitting for my taste, but I readily acknowledge that I like slim-fitting clothes less than do probably 99% of the people on SF.

It's not something for which I'd have much use, but if I did have need of such a shirt, and if I saw this one at Target for $13.99, I might buy it. I just wouldn't pay much money for it, because I think it's sort of silly to spend much on certain types of clothing. For example, the $120 designer t-shirt or sweatshirt makes no sense to me, and in my mind the shirt in question falls into a closely related category.

Hi all, I was trying out jackets at the Bay today and really liked this one by Black Brown. The man who was working there said the fit was really good in all the parts he checked. How does it look? This is a 38R. I asked him to measure the dimensions because I wanted it compare it to a sport coat on eBay.

The first photo is not clear so I cannot give much comments about the fit.

But the sleeves seem a bit long. Are you wearing a short sleeves or long sleeves shirt inside the jacket?

Creases or not on my navy MTM chinos? I'm going to wear them casually with OCBDs, v-neck and polos. Also, I am 19 years old. Does creases look weird on young fellas like me?

My sleeves are rolled up here. How does the length of the jacket look?

Please let me know what you were thinking by taking a picture in the middle of your Parkinson's flareup, then taking one on the side and not rotating it. Are we supposed to save it, then rotate it for you? Are we supposed to shake our heads really fast while looking at the first one?

 

Sorry to be so rude but I really don't get why you would send those after reading the first page. I know I fall short of meeting the standards for pictures but why would you ever submit that?

Why yes, on both accounts mrjester.

 

 

 

 

 

 







 

j/k haha

Oops on the crappy photos, I asked the older gentleman who was working to take the photo for me, my phone is crap anyways. I actually saved a rotated version on my desktop but looks like I attached the wrong one..

Long-time lurker, first-time poster. Apologies if this has been asked before..

 

For suits, shoes, other items if it differs: does rotating through your wardrobe, "resting items", and spreading out wears add to the item's life in "number of wears", or does it simply spread out the wears you'll get over a longer duration.

There's a fairly widely held belief that giving the item a day or more of rest in between wears will result in it lasting for more wears. This is particularly believed to be true with regard to shoes, although it's a pretty common belief with regard to suits, as well. There are several reasons offered for thinking this way, but getting into them would more properly be a matter for a thread of its own, and not simply a post in this thread, which lends itself more to relatively quick answers than to drawn out discussion.

However, I'm unaware of any statistically meaningful studies having been performed in an effort to nail down the truth or falsehood of these beliefs. Which is not to say that none have been performed - I could easily imagine a major shoe company, or the US military, or a state prison authority, or a grad student with an unreasonably large research grant - conducting such research. I'm just not aware of any such studies, right off the top of my head.

And, of course, even if these beliefs are, generally, true, it's highly likely that they vary greatly on an individual basis. The climate in which one typically finds himself, one's tendencies with regard to perspiration, the construction of the clothing item, and a host of other factors, could well result in the "day of rest extends the number of wears" idea being virtually insignificant for some people, and being enormously significant for others.
