So I've been folding my sweaters with a piece of tissue paper in between the back of the sweater and the sleeves that drape over. What's the point of the paper and what happens when I start storing my sweaters without them?

Hi all,

 

I am looking for tailored wool dress pants on a budget (80-120$) and I am a little on the chubby side (240lbs, 5.11, 40 waist). This causes a problem.

 

The usual suspects in this range like Jcrew, Uniqlo, and BR either cap out at a 38 waist or have their pants split into classic (parachute) or slim/skinny which tend to be tight in the thighs for me. Oddly I can find chinos and jeans in this trim(er) style e.g. gap jeans regular 38 waist fit me well, but not wool trousers.

 

I know Nordstrom can sort me out but at a price point that I am not comfortable with considering that I blow out the crotch in pants after a year of use.

 

I want to avoid the old man pant look but I cant fit into the skinny stuff. Anyone have any suggestions? Brands to look into? Or will I just have to get the larger ones tailored?

 

Thanks!

Similar question here.

 

Looking for wool trousers, but with slim fit. The E. Zegna slim fit trousers fit me perfectly, but are expensive. What would be alternatives I should look for, and how does E. Zegna size 48 (European) translate to American sizes? Thanks.

Does anyone know if LBM or Boglioli make jackets in Long sizes? I take it they do not, seeing as I've yet to find one for sale.

Both brands have blazers that look exactly like what I want; but the standard length will not suffice.

Thanks.

Buy pants you can get into, then have a tailor slim them to your desired dimensions.

Hey guys, so I want to buy this jacket http://www.gq-magazine.co.uk/style/articles/2013-08/21/liam-payne-one-direction-premiere-wearing-topman-jacket and I found one size extra small for an affordable price. It is sold out on their official website.However, I typically wear size small not extra small for t shirts by Topman. The jacket is genuine leather. Should I buy it? Is it true that leather jackets should be sized down as they are supposed to be tight, but then loosen up as you wear them? I want a similar fit to the one in the picture. Thanks!

I notice that you've asked several times whether it would be okay for you to buy an extra small, even though you wear a small. Once again, the answer is typically "no."

Not even if leather jackets are supposed to have a more snug fit than some other types of jackets. (Not a "tight" fit. There is a difference.) Not even if you might wear the jacket unbuttoned (something you asked about in a post in another thread). Not even on the hope that it might "loosen up" with some wear.

If you are a size small, then with few exceptions you should buy a size small. Not an extra small. Not even if it's priced low. Because while every now and then you might find an extra small that runs big for the size, mostly you won't. (To the best of my knowledge, Topman fits pretty much true to size, and not unusually large.) As a general rule, you should buy the size that fits you, and in your case it's typically going to be a small that fits you, not an extra small.

I beg to differ. I have lots of experience owning and buying leather and denim jackets and always size down one and even two whole sizes. You are completly correct in your assumption that your leather should have a tight fit. There's nothing wide than owning baggy leather ( have you seen leather jackets that add a gut? Not appealing).

Just the .02 cents of a biker.

I was wondering if there's any 'official' way to tell if a particular Zegna pant is made by Incotex. I see the usual signs (belt prong loop, blue band in back, made in Portugal/Romania) on my pants, but still want to confirm that it is the case.

Thank you for your post, do you have any knowledge specifically on Topman leathers though?

Just buy the jacket. You'll either prove everyone wrong, or learn a valuable lesson.

Do all AE business shoe models have the same size? I tried on a pair of Park Avenues in person but I am thinking about buying a pair of Cliftons online.

 

Thank you in advance!

Different models have different lasts. Their balmorals however, (and correct me if I 'm wrong gents) are mostly in the 5 last. My strands are in the this same last and they go tts with park aves.
