I have a very small stain on a (silk) tie, what's the best way to deal with it? Also, I have no idea at all what the stain is as I noticed it yesterday, and I hadn't eaten any food with the tie on or anything that day.

Blazer fit question -- what should be done here? Shortening the sleeves seems immediately in order, but apart from that what would you guys suggest? 

 

Specs about the blazer: Gant Rugger Hopzack 42

What is the quality level of Lost and Found shoes?
post #28505 of 33455

So I am standing up in a wedding this october. I'm not the best man. The groom wants us all in grey pants, monochrome plaid shirts, and any tie that matches. I'm having a hard time matching a tie (neck tie or bow tie) to a monochrome plaid shirt. Can I get some suggestions? My grey pants are on the lighter side and Id like to not have to buy new ones..

 

HELP!?

Is there a specific thread for like "looking to buy (insert item)" For example, I'm looking to buy a leather biker jacket, is there a specific place I should post or just create a thread? Thanks! Don't really know the rules as I am new.

Plaids are generally informal and wouldn't be my first choice for a wedding, but of course it's not up to you. Might be helpful to ask the grooms for more specific instructions. What exactly does he have in mind--does he have any examples of this combination (monochrome plaid + tie) that he likes?

 

By monochrome do you mean specifically black/grey and white or is a different color (e.g. blue) okay as well? 

Are you going to wear a jacket?

What scale plaid are you considering (or do you already have the shirt, in which case it'd be really helpful to see it). In general the larger the scale of the pattern, the less formal the shirt. Can you wear a small-scale graph check?

Shoe question!

 

 

 

 

Hi guys!

 

I'm interested in getting either 1 of this shoe ( Plain-toe derbies in brick / Wingtip derbies in brick ) both in brick colour, but i'm not too sure if is too formal / suit if I wear it with my black jeans or beige chinos and a t-shirt?

And also alright to wear it with berms?

 

Please guide me. Thanks!

I don't consider those formal at all due to the color of the sole. I also would not wear them with black jeans....mainly because I don't own black jeans.

Way too casual for a suit because of the soles, and black jeans demand black or gray shoes in my book (or something really saturated and bright, like a red sneaker, but those are outside the realm of classic menswear). Either pair would be great with blue jeans, though. Or chinos. But yeah, those shouldn't be worn with a suit.

I find contrast soles type shoes not very versatile. I have a tan suede chukka/desert boot thing, and the contrast sole means I pretty much only wear it with denim and linen. I think it'd work with chinos too, which I don't wear much.

 

That said I think washed black denim would be fine with that color. I don't think black can only go with black shoes when it's textured.

I don't know about that. How about a cotton or corduroy suit? Or some kind of rough textured tweed or wool flannel?
