I've heard cotton-linen breathes less than pure linen and wears hotter.

Is that true, or is the difference so small it doesn't matter?

True.

Other options in my price range?  I don't know much about suits or suit manufacturers.

Quite a few probably, but Suit Supply is going to be one of your best. You could check out JCrew (their ludlow line gets a lot of praise around here). There's always ebay. Don't discount the usefulness of a quality but used suit. You can get a lot for your money over there. Also, DragonInside or Black Lapel do MTM at a reasonably affordable pricepoint, and they are two of the better options in that market.

I don't have any spare buttons at home, and I am not particularly fond of how thin the factory buttons are, so I am considering replacing all the buttons on the shirt. Are there any recommendation on where to get MoP buttons online. My first thoughts would be Acorn or HWA Seng, but I was hoping to find an online haberdashery based in the US (or brick and mortar in IL). 

 

I would appreciate any insight.

 

Cheers,

HPH

I was a BB over the weekend and felt a dress shirt made out of their Royal Oxford fabric. It was amazing. I loved how soft it was and how breathable it seemed. Does anyone have experience with this fabric and have any opinions? Also, does anyone make similar/identical fabrics for less?

Here's some links where Royal Oxford is explained: http://thesuitsofjamesbond.com/the-royal-oxford-shirt/  http://propercloth.com/reference/royal-oxford/

Where I live, I have only seen this fabric, as well as regular oxford, in thrift shops , which would be a good option if you're prepared to dig around.

This might seem a weird question, but does anyone know where to get a classic black skinny rib turtleneck sweater? 

 

I want to say something like I imagine Steve McQueen wearing, but these were the staple for uniforms from about 1990 to 2000, that I can remember.

 

I've attached a picture of a woman's version, but they're unisex, and this isn't quite the same thing. The size of the rib I'm thinking of is half the width of the one pictured.

 

You'd think for something that was as ubiquitous as a white oxford, they'd be easier to find ..

Do the brown buttons on a suit jacket require a brown belt and brown shoes?  or could I wear black belt and shoes?  here's 2 specific examples:

Nope, but the color of the suit might. I'd wear brown with the first suit, I think you could go black or brown with the second.

Thanks.  I agree brown would be better with first suit. But would black be awful, or just not as good as brown?  And regarding the second one, just to confirm, it's ok to wear black belt even though it would be close to such light brown jacket buttons?

Black would be okay with the first suit. It's doable. 

 

And yes to the second question. It's more about the color of the suit, in my opinion.

I'm a recent school grad looking to start professional life by getting in a proper wardrobe. Problem is the clothing brands I'm thinking of purchasing (Harvie and Hudson, Hilditch and Key, Ede and Ravenscroft and Hackett) don't have physical stores for me to try on their clothes. I've only bought shirts from TM Lewin before and their slim fit for 17" collar fits me fine, and so does Ralph Lauren Polo Classic Fit large while custom fit from them would be slightly too small. Can anyone advise me on how I would fit into hilditch and key or harvie and hudson shirts, what fits I should buy? Thank you very much.

Might be offtopic, but are we being attacked/swarmed ?

What's with the gazillion threads made by two 1 day old members?

EDIT: There's more of them...
