Meaning no offense, but perhaps the Boys' or Ladies' department at some retailers?

Or maybe you could buy a somewhat longer belt and have it cut down.

Me, I wore a Beltmaster dress strap (no holes) today. But I don't know what Beltmaster's minimum size is (and I'm sure no 27-28", myself).

No offense taken, I will definitely check out some department stores.

This looks perfect, except none of them have the aesthetic that I want other than the lined and raised calf leather belt which is a bit out of my price range. Guess I'll have to keep looking.

I've never encountered such, but ran across these that BR (shudder, I know) uses in their 'Aiden' fit chinos - so they're essentially wool chinos, I guess. The Aiden chinos they sell fit me so well that I use Luxire to replicate the fit with better fabrics; they're making me up some cords as I type this, but seeing this had me wondering about the whole no-crease wool pant for casual wear thing.

 

Thoughts? Again, strictly casual wear only, as a cords alternative in F/W.

 

 

Also: the size I use for replication by Luxire doesn't fit quite as skin tight as the ones in the photo.

Uncreased wool trousers don't work well. They can be part of a pure-D, true English country look -- literal "shooting at things from horses" territory, and not really applicable beyond that. Or, they can be an old-timey laborer's look, but really? Don't be that guy.

 

So, they're not really traditional. And I don't like them, either.

In that case an alternative is to have your existing belt shortened, ideally from the buckle end.

Is it ever okay to wear a yellow cashmere v-neck sweater? Something such as this shade...obviously a lacuna in my collection:




(Or am I suffering from early onset seasonal affective disorder!!)

I think it'd be fine with cream chinos chinos and a light blue shirt in a very summery sense. Or layered under darker colours for a spot of colour - why not?

I have a brooks brothers extra slim fit shirt and a slim burberry tie. I use a four in hand knot and what I've noticed is that directly below where the knot is the tie does not cover the middle part of the shirt completely (placket). Is this okay? Seems like there is no way a slim tie + slim knot would cover it.

My first thought is "Oy, that's bright" but my next one is "I like it". I think you could pair it with some darker blues and browns and it would be great for fall.

For some reason, I feel exactly the same way.

I want a yellow v-neck. More of a yellow oxford/lemon sorbet color than that, though.

 

But yeah, if you look good in that color. I'd stick to, say, a white OCBD and cream, tan, or khaki cords. Maybe a tatersall shirt could work, as could the right jeans.

I've got a spring wedding tomorrow (I'm in Australia) and I'd like to go a bit out of my comfort zone and wear a pink shirt (instead of white or pale blue) with a navy knitted tie.

Open to other suggestions of course. thanks.

I have a thrifted pair of fifth avenues and LOVE them. Great shoes.

If it's a reasonably relaxed crowd, I can't see the harm.

Thanks

Topys can be good for traction or weird delicate soles that you want to take extra care of. Frye boots are meant to be worn and JFC they're shoes… of course the soles will get scratched and discolored. Carry on.

Like I said...they're my first pair of boots with a leather sole. I don't know much about them, or a topy for them. I was more concerned about the scratched sole somehow preventing a topy from being added more so than the actual wear. 

 

But thanks anyway.
