I'm not sure if these are sanforized or not, but usually with selvedge denim at least, you want to get them as tight as you are comfortable with and they will stretch over time.

If there is no pressure being exerted on the material it will probably not stretch, so you should be OK.

Depends on your size but Spier & Mackay usually stocks these in a few colours.  Check online.  Its not a severe slim fit, but certainly fitted.

Thanks I googled slim fit royal Oxford and couldn't find one in black. I normally can do my own leg work but just couldn't get exactly what I want.

There aren't a whole lot of shirt makers who bother making black dress shirts in anything but the cheapest fabrics.

I have read with great interest the topic on Carmina shoes and I am a bit surprised - in a good way - by the prices that they charge for most of their shoes on skoaktiebolaget. How does the quality of their shoes compare to C&J for instance ?

I have seen a few ties by Monsieur Fox and many of them look very good but there are not many reviews online about their products, it is mainly about their cufflinks / lapel chains, does anyone have experience with their ties or pocket squares ?

Consensus is that Carmina > Crockett & Jones, especially at current GBPEUR rates.

What do you think of the pattern/color combination on this sport coat?  Does this look like an orphaned suit coat (it isn't), or particularly old-mannish?

 

Thanks SF

It looks like a nice sportcoat that's 2 sizes too large for you.

Yeah, I haven't gotten it tailored yet.  It fits the shoulders and arms.

completely agree with this. I owned c&j northcote boots and i still own carmina shell captoe. Now leather wise these boots are different. But overall construction and feel is nicer on carmina side. i do think i am comparing two completely different shoes but i stand by it. Especially given the price.
