Try one or two shirts each, from several likely prospects. Determine which you like best. Stock up from that source.

If you have no idea where the likely prospects may be found, do a search of past posts here on SF. Moderately priced dress shirts have been mentioned in a post or two here, over the years.

Me? I like Brooks Brothers. But my fabric and tailoring preferences may not be your preferences. My build may not be anything like your build. My needs may not be anything like your needs.

If there were truly one source of dress shirts in staple colors which was unarguably better than anything else near its price point, that one source would dominate the marketplace and most of the competition would be out of business.

Good Evening Everyone!

 

If anyone here is familar with Robert Talbott-Does anyone know who makes their suits and sport coats?

 

As they usually retail for around $900-1,500+ and are typically made in Canada, although I've seen some that stated they were made in the USA or Italy?

 

Who makes them? Samuelsohn??

Good evening.

I'm heading to tailor to make my wedding suit. Given my slender body type (32" chest, 27" waist), shall I proceed with light/mid grey prince of wales check for a early December wedding take place at 3pm? Given temperature by the time still 60-70F here.

Good evening gents,

Silly thing, but I was hoping someone might be able to tell what kind of fold this is, and/or how it is done?
Thank you for any assistance!

From memory PTO (@dieworkwear) put together some eBay search links which can help focus your efforts on quality brands. The best deals are usually from auctions, or make offers against inventory held by professional sellers with a Buy It Now price.

 

Surely suitsupply?

How should a good fitting dress shirt look from behind? I'm looking for a very slim fit, and i'm wondering if this is a normal amount of blousing/stacking on the back: http://imgur.com/a/0f8xb

 

The above shirt can't really have the waist diameter reduced anymore without causing pulling lines/being uncomfortable

Just wondering how do you guys lace your Wingtip shoes (like Alden LWB)? I have been using straight bar lacing but for such a casual shoes the lacing style seem to be off.
post #33113 of 33195

I use european straight lacing for all oxfords. For me broguing doesn't affect it, it's all about how the eyelets are placed. I use crisscross for pretty much everything else (derbies, boots, chukkas). I rather think the corrugation adds character to casual shoes.

I'm looking for a pair of oxfords for a business casual work environment for my first job. I'd be wearing them with mostly chinos. Looking for a pair in brown and prefer if the leather is suede. I just like the subtleness of suede as to the shininess of leather.

 

What's a good brand to look into without breaking the bank?

post #33115 of 33195
When you say oxfords I assume you are referring to lace ups, since you mention the business casual environment and the fact you'll be wearing them with chinos. To clarify, oxfords in the true sense of the word, are shoes with a closed lacing style, a more formal shoe than say a blucher, which has open lacing. Anyhow, you may want to try checking out shoebank.com for Allen Edmonds seconds. There you can get a high quality, durable shoe for a very decent price.

I'm looking for a pair of slim black leather chelsea boots / side zips. I've got a pair of Story Et Fall suede chelseas, so I'm looking for something in a similar price range, maybe a little cheaper.

 

 

I'm having the hardest time finding a decent pair, any recommendations?

Same with me.

QUESTION seeking answer:

 

Hi, I bought a pair of oxfords and I like the quality, fit and look. Only one issue with the stitches at the bottom of the lace parts near the vamp, you can see in the photos. The tiny eyelets are close to the edge and they are ripped. Could anyone tell me how much this will affect the durability and wearability of these shoes? Is this issue big enough to return them? Thank you.

That's a return/exchange for me.

You can't really come back from ripped leather.

What do you think to the Jacket?
