Just getting an extra hole added. It cost me about £5

OK.  I'm not sure if that would be something you would like to do, but I would recommend you start lifting and taking in some protein supplements and quality foods to bulk up your muscles a little.  Not that you need to be a muscle-head or anything, but your shirts, as well as you as a whole, would probably look better if you add some bulk, preferably in the form of muscle.  I'm serious about this.

Thanks for your advice I will follow it but what do you think to the fit of the shirt?

With the first trousers, I'd stick with solids as much as possible, probably in lighter shades than the pants. Navy blue would work, but green or gray or lighter brown would look good too.

 

On the second pair, just about anything. Texture is more important in that regard. You want to match the texture of the pants, but you could pair them with solids or patterns and still look pretty good. That's the nice thing about light to mid-gray trousers. You can pair them with almost anything and look good.

 

Thanks Koala

And take A LOT of creatine. Stop eating, only drink creatine.

Fit is meh. Not terrible, but meh.

I have a question about half canvassing or full canvassing. My tailor makes half canvassed jackets but with no interlining or fusible or anything below the half-canvas just empty space in there. He can also make full canvassed jackets.
I want a pretty soft construction jacket. It is worth to go for full canvas in this case ( maybe with very light canvas) or going half canvassed is "enough"? I assume full canvassing will be more expensive.

Need to pick up a navy grenadine tie on short notice. Would prefer one that is roughly 3.5" wide. Any suggestions on who might have some in stock and could ship to the U.S. By mid-week?

I love my burgundy grenadine from Kent Wang; the navy should be no different except in color.

He ships out from Texas, so you should definitely receive them by mid-week.

Any thoughts on double monk strap dress shoes, especially in tan?  Are they too much of an oddball these days and you need a lot of confidence to pull it off?  Can I wear them with dressy jeans for smart casual?

I like my Kent Wang ties too. Not sure if you will receive by mid-next week though. If you order by today you might. I would double check with them and check to see if they have expedited shipping options. I don't remember if there were the last time I ordered. I usually pick the cheapest option.

Personally don't like double monks myself, but don't see why you couldn't use it for for smart casual with jeans, especially in tan.

Question of my own.

Thoughts on shoe brands for patent leather oxford shoes.

I don't think I want to spend more than $200 and English made is a preference, but would go for American, Italian, etc.

Would prefer a sleeker last (not as sleek as C&J 348, but sleeker than Allen Edmonds/Alden) and looking to have it in hand before mid march for a black tie wedding.

Hi all,

Question about online shoe purchasing. I recently bought a pair of shoes online from Macy's (Florsheim, had a gift card, and they were on sale). When they arrived one had clearly been tried on and creased, the other had not.

Should I return them to the store for a new pair, or simply accept that they will crease anyway not make a big issue out of it.


Thanks
