They can still look damn good but they're out of fashion so you won't see them much here. They often sell for much less just because of that reason.

People think double vent drapes better, but it depends on your body. They're also more italian cut most of the time.

Take that for what you will.

I think single vent is ok as well, but again depends on body type. Single vent not very popular on SF either.

I don't think that's true. Most of the posters on the CM WAYWRN thread have single vented Jackets. No one discredits a fit there because people are wearing a single vented jacket. There have been some great fits with unvented jackets as well...

Huh? I mean, most people aren't showing the backs of their jackets, but very few people have single vents, from what I've noticed. Look at all the SuitSupply, and the vaguely Neapolitan stuff. None of that has a single vent.

And then look at Brooks Brothers. Most BB suits and sport coats are single vent. And BB probably sells 1000 suits/blazers/sport coats for every 1 sold by Suit Supply. Even restricting the numbers to SF members I am confident that BB sells hundreds of jackets for every one sold by SS.

The fashion is for double vents. A majority of influential people on here are in double vents.

 

In the real world, plenty of people, me included, wear more single vents than double vents.

 

But SF ain't always the same as the real world.

Single vs double is meh. Just don't get unvented right now.

I agree that double is in right now though.
post #27083 of 33380
I like double vent more, because I don't have to worry about how the vent folds when I sit down or drive.

Single vent lovers would argue that you're always sitting on the jacket then, which might cause that part to wear unevenly.

For a while I actually thought that people on this forum don't care about what's in fashion and what's trendy - that it was really about classic style. Now that I've been more exposed to pics from WAYWRN, the current perspectives on vents & tightness of the trousers & all the nearly-highwaters, I've reconsidered.

Not a valid argument, because you're sitting on your jacket when it's single vented all the same. Except that it may fold and crease in unpredictable ways.

Most of us don't follow trends. But you have to conform a little bit, otherwise you look weird in real life. Also, the makers follow trends, so when we buy new clothes, we have to buy what is more or less trendy.

Quick question-

 

I picked up a couple of seconds during the 2 for 250 sales - one of which is the Singletons below

 

The right shoe of the singletons (left one in picture) has a darker color blemish spot at the front, and a few scuffs on the side; are there any way I can go about fixing these issues?

Also what shoe polish/cream should I use for this pair? Walnut or neutral?

 

 

Thank you guys very much in advance,

The scuffs will be gone with polishing. The dark spots will stay. It's not a big deal and is hardly noticeable in real life. If you wish, you may polish your shoes with a darker cream to make it less obvious. But be careful with that, it takes some skill.

Unbuttoned points always make we wonder whether the wearer forgot to button the after laundering.

 

I could probably button it, but honestly I don't know because I never have, and I never plan to wear it with a tie.  It fits well in the body, and shoulders, which is tough for me to find, and I'll only ever wear it with the collar open, so I just never even thought about the neck size.
