upcoming, I have taken the liberty of creating a new thread in this forum. "upcoming Asks You About His Shirt," is a thread where you can ask as many questions as you like regarding the fit of your shirt. No other topics of conversation will be permitted there.

You're welcome.

Hi,
I would like to buy a tie with a flowery - if that's the adequate term - printed pattern similar to what Drakes, Shibumi offer but around £40~50 ? Or am I just being delusional ?

I think what you want is typically called a "neat" or "neats" pattern or maybe "challis", and I think I can do better than your price for decent quality. Check out the Ancient Madder section of the Chipp2 website. They make quality, classic neck ties for a god price (and no, I don't work there). They even have grenadines for less than $50.

Hello all,

 

I've been looking to purchase a leather messenger bag or satchel for some time now. I will be using it to carry around a laptop and school books, so it needs to be quite roomy. I want it to look elegant and be able to use it in a business setting but not too formal and with a bit of flair. I am in my twenties. What do you guys think of this Burberry Prorsum Everyday Satchel. It comes with a shoulder strap aswell.

I learnt a new word for the patterns then.
Thank you kindly !

Would wearing deep navy velvet slippers with a black velvet jacket be clashing too much? For general wear and specifically for a formal event?

Hey

 

I'm 5'10 and I wear 9/9.5 dress shoes.  I never knew proportions mattered when choosing cuff heights so should I go with 

 

1.75

 

OR

 

2"

 

Thanks!

Bigger cuffs are in right now, and you're on the tall side of things. I'd say go 2", but others may disagree based purely on the numbers.

Hey guys,

Got this pair of black pebble grain/suede Grenson x Foot the Coacher boots from Mr P recently.

Great shoes, but what do you guys think about wearing these with suits? I think I can wear them with chinos / jeans but was hoping suits would be possible too (given I wear suits most of the week). If not, no worries. Cheers.

Also, what do you guys think of pulling off a bright blue suit for work, similar to the attached photo? (Ignore the shirt / shoes etc obviously).

Saw a suit that has a similar colour and it fits well, but... that is a bright colour.

I wouldn't mix different colours of velvet in one outfit, especially with colours as close as black and navy.  It might be possible with red or green velvet slippers depending on the shade they are.

That's a very reasonable colour for a summer suit IMO.  You might be able to wear it to work if your office isn't too deeply entrenched in the dark suit master race.

Is US GQ magazine a good source of info for current trends in menswear?

Which is more aesthetically pleasing?: Alden's Medallion Toe or AE's Strand?

Alden:

AE:

Carmina's:

I like Alden's brogue because it is closer in its overall look to Carmina's incredible brogues(love that narrow,sleek look but obviously Alden doesn't have the chisel toe), but I like the Strand because of its elongated toecap that makes your foot appear longer(I do hate their PA and 5th Ave because the toe cap is very short). One important thing is that Alden's Hampton last fits me better than AE's 5 last.

 

I'm having trouble deciding on my next pair-can you guys help me out? Please don't take color into consideration.

I like Aldens medallion the best but Carmina has the best shape for me. I don't like Carmina's medallion because it looks like a praying mantis.
