Agreed. After all, who doesn't have an old prom or wedding pic or two featuring a light brown tux, chocolate brown lapel trim, yellow ruffled shirt, and matching yellow rose in a photo album somewhere. (Ahem)

Sometimes you simply have to grit your teeth, smile, and accept the honor of being invited to take part in something important to your friend or relative. Years later you can share a laugh together.

Or a wince.

I wouldn't do that, but from personal experience, it wasn't fun being the center of attention (for the wrong reasons).

Hey guys!

 

 

 

 

I got this Acne knitted sweater about a year ago. My problem is, the neck opening has widened so it's almost as wide as a scoop neck jumper now.

 

Do you have any recommendations for what to wear under this kind of neck jumper? Shirt doesn't look to good.


Anybody with experience of letting your tailor do alterations of a knitted sweater? My guess is it would be pretty expensive.

 

Thanks

Use it for digging the garden and replace it with a nice tweed jacket. That won't let you down.

Almost seems like HF is trying too hard with this label. True quality can afford to speak softly; it needn't shout.

Looks like cotton. Have you tried washing it? Stretched out sweaters often reset after a wash.

Any recommendations for a decent quality winter coat for around $400? In search of something clean and minimalist styling like APC raglan mac or COS wool coat (not sure about it's quality/construction)

I dont have this overcoat but I do have the cashmere version. If this wool one is even half as nice as the cashmere one it will be worth the price.

To Keep or To Sell??: Alden x Epaulet Indy Boot in brown CXL

 

I recently purchased an Alden Indy boot make up in brown CXL, but I am having second thoughts, having worn it just once now. It seems most of the CXL boots I see around look pretty beat to hell after just a few months wear, due to the nature of CXL being pretty soft and all, and developing lots of creasing. That would be fine if I picked up a pair of "on sale" 1000 mile boots for $250 or something, but having just dropped $575 for this special make up, I am wondering whether that was a mistake. I know CXL is very trendy right now, but again, I am feeling like I just paid too much money for a boot that is lost

 

somewhere in between a dress boot and a work boot, love Indy as I do….

Are there any online stores where I can purchase turtlenecks in size XS from the UK for a decent price? (I'm on a student budget)

 

If not online, perhaps somewhere in London?

 

I'm not talking turtlenecks that are overly thick, as I plan to wear them under suit jackets/sport coats.

 

Thanks!

depends on how you wear them and how you care for them. If you regularly clean and buff them the scratches and scuffs will fade and the leather will patinate. If you're constantly kicking them around and abuse them and keep them dirty then any shoe will look like shit. Also the Indy is nowhere near a dress boot. It's 100% casual, wear it as such.

I am looking for the blue saint laurent chain jeans size 32. Anyone has them?

What's the most a pair of pants can be taken in at the waist? I normally wear a 29W but may get a suit (jacket fits just fine) which comes with a 32W pants. Taking in by 3 inches reasonable? I seem to recall the recommended is no more than 2 inches. I may be able to life with 30W.

I've heard 2" as a rule of thumb, but if you separate the waist band instead of darting it, I think you could take 3 fine.
