Thanks guys, I'm leaning that way too.

Yeah, I mean more than double the amount of $, I could think of a lot of good uses for that money, and they both look great.... but I think I'll stick with the SL one at the end, just a little more versatile (the shorter version doesn't look as good for work clothing I think, a bit more casual).

I realised BTW that the Lanvin one would be a bit warmer because it is a wool/polyamide blend - in HK anyway, the coldest it gets is 10-15 degrees celsius so it's not like I need something super warm.

Since you are in Hongkong, how about getting a bespoke coat? With the price of the SL's peacoat I believe you could get something that fits you better, and save some money to do something more useful.

Actually the SL coat fits me really well as is, and beautifully constructed - I'm happy with it (and actually v happy with the Lanvin one too, hence the dilemma - clearly I can't keep both).

The SL peacoat costs me ~HKD8200. The Lanvin one costs HKD4400. So there's the agony.

Have absolutely no idea how much a bespoke one would cost in HK, but can't imagine I would save much on pricing as is - will head to HK tailor thread to confirm that, thanks for suggestion.

I didn't expect it will be around US$1000 for the SL and US$500 for the Lanvin. You did get them cheaper than in the US. At that price point, just ignore my bespoke suggestion and go with the SL. I though the SL would be something close to US$3000, then the bespoke will be an option.

Hi guys - not sure if this is the right thread for this.

What do you guys think of this shirt?

I'm thinking of wearing it casually. I don't really have anything black in my wardrobe (other than ties and shoes), so I'm not sure how to incorporate it. Any help would be appreciated!

^^^ I don't like it.  Nor do many other people given how many sizes they have left in both fits and the steeper than ordinary discount.  I can't imagine wearing it any other way other than on it's own.

post #31045 of 33186
Only way that I would consider wearing that is with a pair of white shorts on vacation somewhere.

Thanks for the feedback!

Hi all - need sizing help on a pair of Selvedge Chinos. I bought a size 29 and 30 from Club Monaco for $90 and will keep one/return one. I am wondering how much I should account for shrinkage as I've never owned selvedge chinos - the 29's fit me perfectly as is without shrinkage but I'm scared after washing it'll be too tight to the point of unwearable/looking like yoga pants. I have regular chinos and if the shrinkage is similar i'd probably go with the 29's, but if not then i'll be better off with the 30's....since these aren't stiff like selvedge jeans, would these not shrink as much and eventually stretch back due to normal wear after the initial wash?

 

The size 30's are ok but the waist and thighs are a bit loose  and I'll need to wear a belt (which I assume will get better once shrunken). Any guidance/help would be appreciated, i'm probably thinking about this waaay more than i should...

I have a Hober glen plaid prince of Wales tie that I would love to wear more than once a year at weddings. Is there any way to incorporate it into my business wardrobe? Maybe with a light blue shirt and navy suit? I am in a business formal environment but not a stuffy one. Thanks all.

Or a white shirt and any suit (well, not a PoW checked suit). You're overthinking this- it's a pretty formal tie, it will be appropriate. If you want to wear it, wear it.

Should I buy these? I have no chukkas in my wardrobe, FWIW.
