Is there a forum recommended online MTM shirt maker? I've seen the mixed reviews for moderntailor. I'm currently paying $100 per for MTM from a Hong Kong tailor. I love the fit but maybe not the quality. Want to try something more convenient and less costly.

You can try our shirts out and get 50% off your first order. We had a few reviews published lately, you might find that useful when making a decision. For your convenience, here, here, and here. We do unfused collars and cuffs too, lots of people from Style Forum come because of that. More on that here.

 

Hope that helps.

What is the deal with Missoni ties? I have seen a few during my short thrifting career, and passed on all occasions. They have a bit of a novelty tie look (busier patterns). Also the quality doesn't appear better than other brands. Are all missoni ties flippable?

Luxire. There's a long affiliated thread for more infos.

I'm looking for a winter coat that I can wear a suit under for the occasional interview. It should be Midwest winter ready. Budget is $350. Also, I'm 5'8 and pretty skinny (so I don't think a full length trench coat will work).

1. Got any suggestions?

2. Will this coat work?

Any opinions on this cardigan? Is the fit alright, or do I need to size down? It's lambswool - how much would I be able to shrink it without damaging the fabric?

It's horrible and doesn't fit you. Send it to me immediately for disposal! ;D

Seriously, it's pretty nice. I'm jealous.

I wouldn't try to shrink it and I think sizing down would be too tight.
post #25029 of 33180

Yeah, that looks pretty awesome to me!

Thanks for the feedback fellas. My concern is that I'm hopefully dropping another 20lbs and worried it'll be way too loose. It's a Gap medium tall.

post #25031 of 33180

Then you'll deal with that when it happens.


Congrats on dropping the pounds so far and good luck with the next 20!

post #25032 of 33180

Thanks! Yeah, I'm trying to convince myself that's an ok approach. Is it not too long for a cardigan?

 

Related question: You're going to lose a futher 20 lbs, but your current wardrobe of dress pants (which are worn ≥ 4x a week) is hilariously large on you. You are at a 34x34 right now. You can fit a 33x34 without too much trouble. You can squeeze into a 32, but it feels like you're going to rip the button off if you make a wrong move. You managed to snag two pairs of Banana Republic wool dress pants for $90 total (in 34) - but you're worried they're going to be way too big in like 3 months. There's definitely some fat to be trimmed in your midsection; your best guess, albeit one that you're not that confident in, is that you'll be at a 32 when you're done.

 

options:

 

a) return the pants, hold off until done losing weight, and grin/bear the horrid look for now

b) swap em for 33s - they'll eventually go from somewhat snug to being an inch or so too big, and you can then get them taken in.

c) get 32s, which will become wearable in around 5-6 weeks and will likely fit perfectly when done.

 

I can't seem to find much on SF about transitional wardrobe strategies.

 

 

I had this problem with like 4 new suits sitting in my closet; returned 'em all.

Choice B.

Is Donegal wool generally softer than Shetland wool?

I tried a Shetland sweater and am not really liking the feel. I am considering a speckled Donegal now for a similar look but softer feel

Is a double soled cordovan wingtip (RL Marlow) just completely wrong shoe to go with a navy worsted suit?

Thinking about packing light for an uncoming trip. (Suit + SC + odd pants)
