I posted this to the newb forum earlier this week but didn't get an answer so retrying here.  Does anyone know the name of this weave type on one of my jackets?


Looks like twill weave.

 

Broken Twill?

Edward Green, I believe.

Not Edward Green, certainly C&J - for example the open channel stitching to the sole, the heel treatment, and the way the size is written in (C&J mainline production is usually stamped, but for special orders like this it's sometimes written in by hand).

I don't know if there's a specific mainline production model that is equivalent. They could be pretty recent, I've certainly purchased C&Js that look like that in the past couple of years.

Granted, this doesn't have Crockett and Jones, but I was going off this Leffot Tumblr:

I thought C&J. But was trying to learn more as I will probably sell them. They're a bit long for me. Any idea what a fair asking price might be?

If C&J or EG, you could probably get between $125 and $250 for them, assuming pretty decent shape.

I've edited the above, to get to the crux of the matter.

You like the length. Assuming you have confidence in your taste and judgement, that means the length is fine. Don't go changing the length of something whose length you already like.

If you've little confidence in your taste and judgement, then post a photo of you wearing the coat in question - which is worth 1000 words describing the coat to us - and ask for opinions as to length. Then do whatever the majority want. Dress by SF opinion poll.


It's not just a matter of taste, as I think knee-length looks great too. I'm just weighing being modern against being trad, functionality against versatility (I feel a slightly shorter coat can be worn with more casual clothes, while long coats look off with less than odd trou+jacket), having a flashy, dramatic coat that blows in the wind against not being too outlandish and out of touch, etc... tough decisions...

So, is having a shorter coat total blasphemy against CM gods, or should I be fine?:tounge:

No, it's just a straight diagonal- if I have the orientation correct (that's a sleeve, right?), it's a left hand twill. Made of coarsely finished wool, making it tweed.

I'm looking for a maximum $200 good quality Cashmere scarf. Any recommendations at that price point? Something that pops.

Hi,

I have read "dressing the man" and "true style". I was wondering if you guys have any recommendation for book that would deal with suits (structure, shoulders etc) ?
post #31541 of 33186
I like the first ones because they have unusual detail. The second ones are plain. However I like both
post #31542 of 33186
Option 1 because they stand out.

I'm new to this world and I wanted to know if Blue shoes are acceptable or it's a no go?

 

Thanks.

Really depends on context. I'm assuming you mean leather/suede and not sneakers?
post #31545 of 33186
I love navy shoes but they have to be spot on in terms of quality and style (ie expect to spend some money if you want a pair of blue shoes that dont look silly). Youre probably safe in anything made from navy horween cordovan
