Basically, yes. There's a reason those sweaters are so cheap, and I wouldn't expect to get more than a year, maybe two, of use before they start pilling substantially, getting holes, etc.

Good wool is not cheap. Good cashmere sweaters, even less so--good cashmere sweaters start at around $500.

Not sure what your budget is to suggest alternatives. Johnstons of Eglin on Sierra Trading Post is usually a pretty good deal depending on the budget though.

As for now, washing isn't going to do much good, so I'd just get a good lint roller and use it after wearing.

How is a dressing gown supposed to be worn? What is supposed to be worn underneath a dressing gown?

I'm trying to build a basic shoe collection, my "uniform" is Gap Tailoreds + button down. I love my AE mactavish (cognac). I have a pair of penny loafers I bought to give the AEs a break but they kill my feet. Question is: What AE lace up would you recommend next? I think Strands in Walnut or Fifth Aves in bourbon calf. Trying to vary style and color just a bit. Thoughts?

Hi,

Does anyone knows how to remove those inevitable scuffs from my LV loafers?


Thanks!

Hello... What colour shirt would best match this tie? Thinking of wearing it with navy blazer & khaki chinos but stuck on a shirt. Would plain light blue be too matchy? Thanks in advance.

Can someone recommend me a inexpensive briefcase for a interior design student? Thanks

Does anyone have experience with Bertolo cashmere knit wear in term of quality and fit? I did a quick research but did not find much information about it.

Neutral cream polish. Not wax.

How about a Filson ? The cotton twill comes in several colors. It holds a lot and is very durable. I believe they are under $200.

For something less expensive and more modern. Look for a black ballistic nylon zipper portfolio.

Also try Yoox for briefcases. They have some good looking ones

Hey guys. I have a wedding to go to next weekend. I'd like to wear this tie with these pants. I need a jacket and shirt. Suggestions? I'd like to pick up a shirt with a pattern, I don't have many.

Thanks for the brutal honesty - that's what I'd feared. With that said, does anyone have any recommendations for brands, or lines within brands, that are "square-shoulder" friendly?

Uniqlo has decent cashmere sweaters for the same price you might pay at BR. They aren't the best, but I haven't notices the lint issue. You might also look at Land's End.

Brutal honesty is a style forum specialty. wink.gif

The secret is trying on LOTS AND LOTS of jacket's. And always try one size up and one size down as well. Your body will demand different sizes from different brands.

How tall are you?
