My local NM last call only carries Hickey Freeman suits. How can I tell if they are mainline or not?

it's mainly when i try it on and button it up it looks TOO fitted? i don't know..something about it makes it look "feminine." maybe i need to look for a thicker/different material that goes with my body type. thanks for the replies!

Wait you want it baggier? Are you buying the right size?

If you're skinny there aren't too many brands you shouldn't be finding baggy.

When is an OCBD not an OCBD? Or is any shirt with button-down collars an OCBD, in common parlance, even if it's a lighter, thinner cloth than a true oxford cloth?

Maybe the fit does look right and I do the non-SF thing to do and bring the girlfriend when I shop because she's the one who said it looks like a dress. She usually has good taste in general though. Yes I'm making excuses .

Hi there guys.

I was wondering what your thoughts were on this briefcase bag.

http://www.jcrew.com/mens_category/a...0353/30353.jsp

Its not big enough for my laptop but I have a chance to get it for 50$.. would like to hear your guys' opinions on it. I'm not a male-bag wearer kind of guy but would make an exception for trips on the plane etc for a carry on and if its needed. Should I purchase this anyways?

Thank you.

If what you really need is a laptop bag, then don't buy that one at any price. If you need a small carry-on bag in addition to a laptop bag, that'll do nicely.

I am a college kid and I am going to a high school friend's wedding in San Francisco. Its going to a semi casual attire affair. I recently purchased a single button jacket (link below) as I only have one suit in my wardrobe currently and was wanting to expand.
My question is what is your preference of trouser color to match with a charcoal heather jacket like this? Should the jacket be lighter than the trouser? vice versa?

Solid gray really isn't a good choice for an odd jacket. If I were you, I would get matching trousers and make a suit of it. If you choose not to, you really need trousers in a contrasting color. That rules out gray, which is probably the single best trouser color, and leaves you with navy, black, and possibly brown of which the former two are questionable choices.

That's an orphaned suit jacket, and it's never going to be anything else. Not that 99.9% of San Francisco would care. Lighter pants only. Not gray, in any shade.

This is true. I lurked until I wanted to buy. Then I posted twice to start the process. Now I occasionally post if I think I have something useful for others to read. Other than that I don't post much and have purchased from more than one seller. I might suggest communicating with the buyer to get a "feel" for them but I think most buyers here are okay. If one wants to create havoc it is highly unlikely it will be through purchasing an item on B & S.

Hi Guys,

Need your opinions on the below:

http://www.auctiva.com/hostedimages/...0,0,0&format=0

It is a 2011 Zegna Soft. Real or fake? Thoughts?

post #6778 of 33197


I'm having trouble pairing this Banana Republic dress shirt (white with somewhat-subtle light olive green pinstripes) with a tie. I have a green/gray plaid tie but seems like too much "green." Any suggestions?

Thanks fellas.

Unless they brought Soft back I don't think soft has been made in years.

Burgundy, navy, black, purple... anything but something with a similar stripe. That's a very neutral shirt.
