what exactly is a slub tee, slub polo, etc?

 

 

 

i see the word 'slub' in front of all sorts of tops lately, just curious what constitutes defining something as a 'slub' _____.

Found some stitching in the upper of a pair of dress boots starting to fail. Can a cobbler fix this and if so can someone recommend a competent cobbler, either mail order or in the Los Angeles area?

Hi,

 

Apologies if I have done this incorrectly - not sure if I should 'reply' or 'start new thread'...

 

My enquiry is for advice on buying my first suit.

 

That said, I'm 56 years young. I've had sports jackets and good trousers but never a suit.

 

I'm wanting a suit for my (not overly formal) wedding, and have decided on a classic style suit in a darkish charcoal as something versatile for the infrequent use I will have for it - weddings, job interviews, perhaps meetings, funerals?, etc.

 

I have looked at Tolley in William St Melbourne, and also at Pozzoni in Queen St. For $600 or $700, marked down from $1000, or $1200, they seem to be nice quality, fabric and style. But I am a total novice.

 

Does anyone think this sort of place (ie a small independent label) is an appropriate place for me to be shopping. I also tried Myers, but was not so impressed with the quality, fit and advice.

 

As example, Pozzoni is $600 (down from $1000), fine merino 100%, designed in Melbourne, made in Italy, with 2 pair of trousers.

 

Thanks so much for any advice I can receive,

 

Steve

Hard to say from here. How does it fit?
post #28311 of 33197

seems to be a very good fit - feels good from that perspective

Where should your suit jacket pockets hit, relative to your waist and hips?

nvm thanks

@steveattt
Mate you are probably better off asking in the Australian thread. Everyone there is pretty helpful and there are a lot of Victorians who will know what you are talking about. Try reading through some of the thread first though as this type of question gets asked a lot.

need recommendations for 100% wool socks in solids (grey/navy). What's the least I can pay to get quality? Thanks!

I've used HJ Hall soft tops for half a year. No regrets, don't need to replace them yet, would recommend though I haven't tried other brands. I hand wash them in the shower and just let them dry, and in winter I can get a few wears before I need to wash them if I don't wear them for too long. I imagine if you machine wash they might need replacing sooner. I have a good variety of solids. I'd check them out.

Gammarelli over the calf in the most luxurious Merino wool.  As worn by the Pope, we're told.  From www.meschaussettesrouges.com  Their service is excellent, the socks about $20 without VAT.  I love them.

 

Cold machine wash seems fine.

I always thought single needle seams were superior to double; why is it that Polo RL shirts are single, while black label are double? Zegna are double too, but Brooks Brothers are single?

gents -- both of these are 80/20. Do you know of anyone selling 100% wool?
