^^

 

You should be able to tell which one has "more timeless styling" just from looking at them.

Well that's the thing - I am not sure if the E Zegna I was looking at was an accurate picture because it's been surprisingly hard to find a pic of one. I've edited my original post to remove the styling as it is entirely more subjective than quality. Thanks.

 

Can you(or anyone else) speak to the quality and comparison of both? I've read Belvest in the Suit Heirarchy thread Belvest is one tier above, but other places claim they are nearly equal. For this reason I'm inquiring regarding which suit I should choose in terms of durability, quality, & feel.

Are we talking about specific suits here, or in general? Second hand, you can generalize all you want, but until you're looking at a specific suit, then it doesn't make much difference.

 

I don't really know anything about E. Zegna or about Belvest in particular.

Yes, a 2013 Belvest black label suit vs this Milano

Should striped pants or a shirt never be paired with a fair isle vest? I have one similar to the one below but I find it a little difficult pairing it with a shirt and tie. Should I try and match the tones of the backround fair isle color or have a contrast?

Anyone know where I can find a menswear shopping guide for Italy? Planning on going to Naples and Florence this year and would like to do some shopping.

Does this suit look dated? Is the gorge too low or the lapels an older shape?

Any thoughts on whether patch pockets would look a little strange on a grey herringbone jacket? Patch pockets on a blue blazer look quite nice, although I am am not sure about sports jackets with a plain herringbone weave?

Lapels are a little too wide in my opinion, and the three buttons come down to preference.

That many patterns would become too confusing, I imagine.

Is that a 3-button suit, or is it designed to be worn 3-roll-2?

 

Any other opinions?

It looks to be 3-roll-2, although that's still a 3-button.

 

Furthermore, I can't tell clearly from the picture if it has more than four buttons on the sleeve?

No, it looks fine.

Beautiful ... and wonderful colors.

I'd start here for the Florence shops

Anyone know the quality difference between these two Brooks Brothers "Desert Chukka Boots"

One is Peal & Co, made in England (by Loak)

http://www.brooksbrothers.com/Peal-Co.%C2%AE-Chukka-Field-Boots/614H,default,pd.html

The other is non-Peal, and says Made in Italy:

http://www.brooksbrothers.com/Field-Chukka-Boots/MH00369,default,pd.html?dwvar_MH00369_Color=BLCK&contentpos=1&cgid=0522

They look similar but I notice the navy suede is darker on one more than the other.

Has anyone experience with both of them? With the Italy one? Strange that they are the same price.

In general which of these are more frowned upon on SF? Tie without jacket, or suit without tie?

 

Also what do people think about getting an odd (light gray) tweed waistcoat made to use just as a generic piece, and wonder if it'd be alright to wear in non wintery months, either with a jacket or without. I think if it's light enough and somewhat subtle it should be fine? Or should I keep tweed only for winter/colder months?

 

Something like this:
