I agree with you on this.

I'm looking for sport coat and blazer maker recommendations for a coat that has very soft shoulders?

 

I'm just starting to dabble in upping my style game and I started buying a few sport coats on Ebay with varied results.  So far my favorite sport coat is a 48 L ralph lauren sport coat that I had the shoulder padding taken out of. 

 

I just think big angular shoulder construction of many suits is both uncomfortable and stupid looking.  I bought a a brooks brothers and a canali coat that I really don't like the fit of and may actually make vests out of to salvage something out the purchases.  But I want to buy a brand that suits my taste better.

 

Thanks for any suggestions.

I am a new convert to braces, and need opinions:

1. Is there anything wrong with wearing black formal braces with a charcoal suit (black shoes)?

2. In the situation that I was photographed without my jacket on, would the following textured braces and tie work OK, or would they clash?

post #25594 of 30739
1. No
2. Ok

Does anyone have any recommendations for tie repair in the UK? A pair of mine have just been through the washing machine.

Thanks. I should have worded my question better, but by "No" you mean "no, it's not a problem wearing black formal braces with a charcoal suit and black shoes," right?

I think this is the route I'm going to go with so I have a little more versatility.

Does anyone know anything about this company?

http://www.sartoriastirling.com/

I found a shirt by them at a consignment shop; quality seems to be on par with my Borelli...but I can't find anything more about them then the web page.

Are they custom only? What would retail be?

Why do you care about the retail if you got it for a bargain? And yes they are a custom only operation by the looks of things.

I was concerned about the price to see (if they sold any off-the-rack items) if they might be in my budget for a future purchase.


Thanks for your assistance.

I don't know your life, man. There are plenty of lists for a good five or seven shoe wardrobe out there -- start from there, and excise the items you don't think you'll need.

So... is there a pair of leather/suede shoes that's decent for rainy/snowy/slushy weather? I still can't figure out from what I've read.

Black oxfords, city brogues, country brogues, chukka boots and a loafer.

This is the lapel button hole that is stitched on both sides of the lapel, but is not functioning. Can I cut between the stitch to make it useable, or is a trip to the tailor in my future? I have a boutonniere that attaches via a small button through the lapel I want to use.
