what would be more versatile for shoes colour, the "usual" dark brown or dark mahogany?
post #32162 of 33197

What are those suspender type devices called that keep your socks up and your shirt down.  I believe it clips the socks to the shirt and gets held in place around your leg??  I hate my socks going down and my shirt going up while at the office.

Shirt stays.

Thanks for the name.  I just noticed some have a loop and go around your foot and others are just straps and you would use 4 total.  Any idea on what one works better than the other?

It's the "usual" dark brown for a reason smile.gif The mahogany works best with richer colors. You pretty much can't go wrong with the dark brown. It definitely isn't as sophisticated or eye-catching, but it 's very versatile.

This is so ridiculous … can't believe it's an actual product.

I have no clue...I only posted the screenshot to show the power of Google :)

Shirt stays are the ones that go from your shirt to your sock. Traditional for military types, if I'm not mistaken. The ones with elastic around your calf are called sock garters. I have no personal experience with either, though seeing this conversation inspired me to order a pair of sock garters, an idea I've debated before, since falling socks do irritate me.

Oh, and to control the shirt coming up, try tucking your undershirt into your underwear. Makes a huge difference in my experience.

There are essentially two types of 'shirt stays.' One which clips to the top of your socks and the bottom of your shirts. The other is essentially the same except you clip the shirt, then use the loop on the other end and wear it like socks on your feet and form a strap. 

 

If you're going for the first type, try to buy ones that are relatively high end http://www.kkandjay.com/shop/. If you just snatch one from ebay it's not unusual for the clip to break in a matter of days. I wouldn't wear the same pair continuously either, switch it up a bit to prolong the life span.

 

If you're fine with socks and they stay up alright you should go for the second type, which is much firmer and secure and harder to come lose during the day. However for this type if you like wearing playful socks the strap may obstruct the view.

Thank you Sir for the feedback.  I was really hoping to find some good inside info from someone with experience and your post really helps a lot.  I really don't have a problem with my socks that much, since I cycle and have big calves some socks seem to get stretched out and start to sag just below my calf muscle.   I'll go ahead and pickup a few from the shop you posted.  Surprisingly they are about the same costs as the ones I was about to pickup from amazon, but these do look much nicer and I'm sure they are made a lot better as well.

Figured this was as good a place as any to ask:

Any brand recommendations for a wide foot? I'm not crazy wise, I'm measured as a US 9.5E.

I'm looking at the Rain last by Carmina, but I'm not totally sold, especially because the price is so high. I'd prefer to be around $300-$350 and have an elegant, versatile shoe that is a true E width. I'm specifically in the market for a pair of brown oxfords (or if they're really beautiful, brogues) and a pair of brown tassel loafers.

Thanks!

So got my new shoe trees today, strangely it doesn't fit in my Meermin Elton last, however I did manage to fit it into my other pairs (shoe tree is size uk 7-8, 41-42, all my shoes are size 7 with slight variation in last length and width) Is this a distinct meermin last problem? Sooooo I should probably get a sized down shoe tree? Just found it to be rather weird. 

 

 

 

Also, is this tie technically grenadine? From Charles Tyrwhitt, it's advertised as plain and separate from the grenadine listings but it looks texturally closer to grenadines. So just wondering.

Am I the only one that doesnt get selvidge/raw denim? I have a pair of jeans now for a year that look brand new. I have watched videos about it saying that when you work on your car or motorcycle the jeans will fray and develop "character" I'm not at mechanic or a miner so what's the point? I have not washed the jeans either like the ceo of Levis says to do and still no character.
