Okay, so real question.


Chambray shirts...

New fad? Shirt staple? Recycled from vintage?

I really like how it looks and I think it would look great with certain ties and even when paired with a suit.

 

I'm also interested to see if the fabric/idea has some significance or history behind it.

 

Thanks!

If you put "chambray" into the search box and then click "threads" in the results, you will find this and this as the top two results, which you may find interesting reading.

Thanks!

 

I really love how the fabric can seem to change color with angle. I saw a red chambray tie that was really eye catching!

X-post from Suitsupply thread, but though I'd ask here too

Thinking about grabbing one of their quilted vests, but not sure if I should go with blue or brown. What would be more versatily? Keep in mind that I'd be wearing it with v-neck/crew neck sweaters, casual shirts and denim, rather than over suits/jackets.

Both are versatile colors--the question is going to be which is most versatile with your wardrobe, which only you can answer.

A bb or charbet or zegna tie isn't that much better because of brand.

Lol.

I have two, a Land's End, and an L.L. Bean.

One given to me by my mother, one given to me by my father, both for Christmas two years ago, both still unworn.

It's not that I don't like them, but they aren't really my style. I'm going to peruse those two threads and see if I can find some inspiration.

They speak to me for some reason. I really like how they change with light.

I got an ad for 20jeans and they sell done that look pretty good. Check their site out and let mgr know what you think. I think it's pretty great for the price point.

Www.20jeans.com I think.

Hello, can someone recommend a pair of RTW or even MTO (but not full bespoke) boots made with high quality leather and construction? It doesn't have to be hand-welted - blake/rapid is good enough; something with a sole at least equal in quality to Rendenbach valona or J & FJ Baker oak bark soles. The closest I've come is boots from the Rider Boot Company, as they are blake/rapid with quality uppers - but unfortunately, they are only available in rubber dainite soles. Thank you for your time.

True that. I went with the brown one, since I usually wear indigo colored raw denim so I figured brown would contrast better.

When can I wear spectators aside from at a horse race, or polo match? I have until spring to convince myself that I need a pair.

I can't help here but if you manage it let me know. I think they're beautiful but I've never actually seen a pair in the wild (possibly because I never attend any horse races or polo matches). I'd love even a half arsed excuse to pick up a pair.

Well I'm conveniently located by Belmont, and Meadowbrook Polo Club, but I obviously have other stuff I could wear. Might do Kentucky Derby this year.

Just don't want another pair of shoes that I wear once or twice a year.
