Thanks, I checked their website as well but didn't found anything like it. They may have more in their physical store.

I can't quite see the picture, but these Reporter unstructured wool and cashmere jackets in autumnal tones are at tk maxx:

I have one and it is a very nice quality and fabric. I may need to return mine as the fit isn't quite ideal for me though.

I would appreciate any advice on whether to keep or return this suit. This is the smallest size they offered and the shoulders are a little too big, exactly 1/8 inch too wide. The tailor said it would cost me $60 to narrow the shoulders, but recommended it looks fine and it wouldn't be worth it. The tailor only recommended I hem the pants to a "slight break."

Do you guys think this the look okay to keep and alter the rest, despite the shoulders being a little too wide? If so, what else would you suggest getting altered on the suit?
This is my first suit and it will be primary used while I am in law school, so I am not looking for something too fashion forward, but at the same time I don't want something too conservative. Is the overall proportion okay or should I look to slim the sleeves, pants, and chest down further? Thank You!

Hello,

anyone knows where to buy high quality buckles for single monk strap shoes? Many thanks.

Hello guys, I am not 100% sure how dress shoes should fit. I got a new pair of Yanko in 7.5 D in US size, it is actually shorter than my Meermin Elton 6.5 by half size. I cannot place my finger in the shoe for my bigger foot (according to guide online I should have room for a finger, smaller side has some room). I do not feel the shoes are tight when I am wearing them, which will be fine? But the leather bends inward when I put pressure on my feet.
This is with some pressure, the leather forms a curve.

This is when I lift my feet from the floor.
Are these shoes too small or too narrow? My feet are standard width if not narrow. Should I go up half a size or ignore the leather bending and finger test as long as I am comfortable wearing them?

Howdy all. Any idea what this style waist is called? I have never seen it before. These pictures came from the posting on eBay by @sartoriale here http://m.ebay.com/itm/Sartoria-CHIAIA-Napoli-Bespoke-Blue-Wool-Dress-Pants-EU-48-US-32-33-Slim-Fit-/122174394013?nav=SEARCH[IMG][IMG][IMG]

Is there a popular thread here that alerts us to steals on eBay?

 

I bought a dirt cheap Drake's of London PS recently from eBay because of it and know I saw it on SF, but have since been unable to find said thread.

Thank you for bothering to look. I'm not sure. Maybe? It was this item:Drakes London Cotton Pocket Square Handkerchief Dark Blue Orange Aztec Pattern

 

I tried googling it with styleforum attached. no go. The auction link is now inactive so no go there either. Wish I knew :embar:

Have a navy blazer I decided to convert to make it look more like a sport coat. It's of a true navy color from BB. Would you go with the darker brown or lighter brown?

 

darker

 

lighter

 

or lightest

 

I will be wearing this with flannel trousers and chinos mostly.

Which would you choose?

Any particular reason for that choice?

I'd choose the lightest batch(conflicted between the 2nd and 3rd options,truthfully), but I'm seeking wiser perspective because I'm still learning to work with colors. I'd like the one that is most versatile, though I will be wearing the coat with other blue items primarily.

 

I added a 3rd one(the 3rd batch that contains the lightest buttons) last min so there were originally only meant to be 2 to choose from.
