First off, never iron trousers, press them.  This isn’t a linguistic nicety:  they’re different techniques.

 

T.M. Lewin has a useful video (though unlike him, I almost always use a pressing cloth, just to be safe—he introduces the idea late in the video, almost as an afterthought) demonstrating the technique:

Knowing how to press/iron trousers/shirt is a MUST. If one doesn't know how to do this..........

^ Jeezus it's really not that difficult.

^ No one said it was difficult. 

 

Being easy doesn't, however, mean that people are born knowing how it's done.

 

Cheers.

Does anyone have a tutorial for how to tie a scarf like the guy on the right?


I believe both of the pictures show the same knot?

post #28897 of 33328
not sure if this is the place to ask but i NEED basics for the fall/winter. is American Apparel still OK for the price? I am thinking Henleys, waffle knits, long sleeve crews, etc.

The two look like different knots to me; but four in hand maybe?

Hi, I was thinking about buying a Half-Zip Ralph Lauren Polo Cashmere Sweater, are they good quality though? I recently purchased a J Crew cashmere sweater but it was very thin/almost see through so I returned. I'm hoping the the Ralph Lauren would be a little thicker. 

 

Thank you

thoughts on LL Bean quality for basic F/W wardrobe (sweaters, sweatshirts, henleys, etc.)?

price is right, seem decently made...

Hey y'all, my first post here ...I was politely hushed out of a suiting store today.

 

Within minutes, someone came up and explained that off the rack is not for me.

 

I'm 6'3", shoulders are ~50 and waist is 31 but with big glutes and very big thighs.

 

What are my bespoke options around the $300-500 and $800-1200 price points?

Where do you live? MTM might be the best as it's hard to get bespoke at the cheaper price points unless you can go to somewhere in Asia or something.

In SoCal until Q3 2015.

Anyone got a nice, easy guide/infographic for buying a suit? Going to buy a suit on Saturday and it'll probably have to get tailored as I have a short and muscular physique, so mainly a guide to getting the right fit with the shoulders and chest.
