What is the difference between Italian suit drop and American suit drop? I know American suit drop refers to the differences (in inches) between the jacket size and pant waist (i.e. 44R drop 6 means the pants are a 38 waist).

But it sounds like Italian suit drop is measured differently. Anyone care to explain how?

Thanks!

Anyone knows if this "gap" in the stitching of the leather sole of new MOMA boots is a defect?

Will it shorten the life of the sole?


The shop (in Belgium) where I made the purchase told me that they have contacted a MOMA representative to examine the picture.

What do you think?

I'd be primarily using the parka to walk around campus in single digit weather, about 10-20 minutes at a time. I'm

in the Midwest, so we get some pretty unpredictable weather.

Without being an expert on it, I can't see any reason why this would have intentionally been done,

They are my favorite shirt, mainly due to their slim fit being a perfect fit for me and quality for the price. No idea about their tuxes though.

Okay, so you really don't need an expedition quality parka for short walks around campus.

Honestly, both L.L. Bean and Lands' End are sure to have parkas on end-of-season sale any day now, if they haven't been marked down already. Browse the companies' websites, read the customer reviews of the parkas that appeal to you, and buy accordingly. Both companies are easy when it comes to returns, so you'll have that going for you.

I'll add that, if in doubt, you'd probably be better off with a medium-warmth parka and layering, than you will be with the warmest parka you can buy. And that much as I dislike the overly short and close-fitting look in suits and sports coats, an overly short and close-fitting parka is even worse. A picture of such an item ought to accompany the definition of "ridiculous," in the dictionary. (I doubt whether Bean and LE style many of their parkas that way, but you never know.)

What do you think of AI's M-3B?

Ok, so I'm new to colored denim. Which of these shoes would pair best with these maroon jeans? Black monk, blue suede, or walnut blucher?

Thanks in advance!

The blue suede. The colors look good together , plus that's a more casual shoe than the others and so goes better with jeans

So you are suggesting that this was not supposed to happen during production and that it is (whether or not a serious one) a defect. Am I right?

Any thoughts on the versatility of Loake Jack brown suede shoes?

 

 

 

I think they would work with charcoal flannel trousers and a sports jacket, on the more formal end of the spectrum.

I have two very similar pair from different not quite as good makers.

I absolutely loved them, bought them, wore them like 5 times right away, and now it seems I wear them like twice a year because there is always a better option.

Regarding when to wear them, I wear mine mostly with jeans. I wouldn't wear them with gray trousers/navy blazer as that I feel requires a bit more dressy shoe, probably not with charcoal at all but with medium gray and a more casual SC. For sure with Chinos, or a more tweedy county outfit. I've worn mine with seersucker when I didn't want to wear bucs (I want tan/white spectators so bad).
