Well, it's not about $10. It's about not buying anything that I won't use, no matter how much it costs. If someone gives me a free shirt that does not fit me or is of inferior quality, it's still a waste, because I will never wear it. Same with these belts... I have very little experience with canvas belts, so I lack the knowledge needed to make this decision on my own.

Is anyone here acquainted with any adults who wear a size 34 suit? I mean adult in the most technical sense, 18+.

Would it be inappropriate to wear a roomier (not ill-fitting) odd jacket and trousers to the interview? Both solid navy or gray. Tie included, of course.

I really ought to get a Brooks Brothers Fitzgerald or Golden Fleece suit.


No one will pay attention to nor notice that your suits are high quality, that the pants have a slim leg, or that your shoes are CJ. Unless they're some ridiculous color or pattern, or you've had the pants altered such that they're absolutely painted on your legs, wear a suit.

What color sweater vest goes best with a grey herringbone jacket/navy pants? What about shirt color?

Any idea who made this loafer for Palmer, London? I'm guessing Grenson given the inscription inside. (Sorry about the poor quality / big size of pix - I'm new to posting photos )







thanks.

Does anyone know about the quality of the Barker Checkmate collection? There is a new pair of these on ebay for ~130pounds. What styles of Barker shoes are SF approved? Thanks

Really? I think traditionally suits often were worn with suspenders and/or side adjusters and had no belt loops. Also, trad and traditional are not completely synonymous.

Yes, they only come in even numbers. At least that's all I've seen. I wear 31/32 myself and always go for 32 Mabi/Inco. They are quite slim in the leg and I probably wouldn't be able to fit into a size 30; however, if the waist does not fit me perfectly, it's easy to take it in a little bit. Any tailor will be able to fix the waist.

Neckerchief or ascot. There's a difference between the two, but I don't exactly remember what it is. He is wearing an ascot, most likely.

It's a canvas web belt. They're not very complicated things. Some fabric in a fairly simple weave for a machine to make, sewn off on both ends to prevent it from fraying. If the stitching does come undone, it's 10 seconds to fix on a sewing machine. And two metal rings. At retail, a pair of those costs a buck fifty or so. Leather belts cost much more becuase they're made of nice leather. Usually. Cotton is cheap. Polyester is cheap. So fabric belts are going to be a lot cheaper unless somebody's trying to rip you off. Those are priced pretty reasonably for what they are. Cost on 'em is probably about $1 or so, and the rest of it is freight and shipping. Also, thanks for calling my attention to that. Now I need to decide what color I want...

Thanks for the reply. I was looking for a canvas belt for a while now. I felt uneasy paying $50+ dollars for one at BB or RL. So ebay was left as the only option. I ordered the one in brown. If it's of acceptable quality, I will probably get some more later.
