Well, you still want to fit in the theme, and people don't associate Gatsby/Speakeasy with either of those.

Hey guys, how do I describe the shirt that the mannequin wears that doesn't have a price tag, and says " not for resale". Thanks

Is this called a demo shirt or something?

Can't you just put a disclaimer in all your listings saying that the auction is for the jacket only?

Well, it would have to be white tie, since it's in the evening, and frock coats are morning dress.  Go for the wing collar, peak lapels, and jeweled studs.  I think it works.

No, I mean there's sample shirts that the mannequins in stores wear. The shirt I purchased does not have any tags for size/fabric etc. The tag attached also doesn't have any price attached to it, because its the shirt they use to demo/ sample the shirt. Harder to explain than I thought.

"Floor model, from mannequin, no tags" if I wanted to be clear, I guess. I don't know if there is a correct term; didn't know this about mannequin models. Don't know if JR was suggesting one, or knew the proper one.

I don;t want anything disposable but will wear well through several seasons.

LL Bean. The shearling ones are the warmest.

I get them for tennis, and they are called sample shirts, made for the vendor shows, some I have are even different from the actual production design, since they changed the design or cancelled it.

There are a couple of other brands of menswear (normal clothes, not athletic) where I get the clothes shown to vendors or worn by the models which are also called sample shirts.

I am pretty lucky to have the build of a runway model except I am about an inch too tall (with bad posture and a face that doesn't make the grade) so I usually don't even have to try the stuff on, it just all fits like it was made for me, let out the sleeves and bam. If I didn't have enormous feet I'd be set for shoes too!

So I've been told four in hand and a cutaway collar is a no go

Here is a pic of four in hand knot and a cutaway collar


Opinions? Is it better to tie it with bigger knot or is this fine?

Are there any brands selling suits with below-waist button points right now? I know it's unfashionable but I can't find a single suit with a high gorge and a low button point.

 Probably because they look ridiculous?

Having the buttoning point slightly below the natural waist has a subtly slimming effect on the silhouette (I think I learnt this from Despos), and gives the coat a natural, relaxed feel.

This is one of those arbitrary rules people like to repeat that have no basis in the actual history of menswear (kind of like "no cuffs with flat-front pants"). If you look up photos of British royals in morning dress, you will find plenty of FIH knots with wide spread and cutaway collars. Ralph Lauren also favors this look.

Frankly, that knot is too big as it is, and I would tie it a bit smaller.
