post #6826 of 33184
I've been looking for years. I'm really looking for who makes this! Please help. Thanks!

Not sure but I know Jude Law modeled a lot for Dunhill so it's possible it might be from there.

I'm looking to buy a pair of nice professional black dress shoes and I'm wondering what kind of "toe" I should buy. I'm a shorter guy (5'9") with a muscular build. I've read somewhere that short guys should buy squared off toes but I've also read that cap-toed dress shoes are the gold-standard for professional dress shoes. I also don't want something too pointy. Any tips?

Square-toed shoes are vilified here; especially those Kenneth Cole monstrosities. Regardless, if your aim is to look professional, I would avoid them.

I guess cap-toes could, theoretically, be pointy...

But you should be fine with anyghing that is not square. Allen Edmonds shoes are generally recomended as a reliable shoe, and a reliable starting point into the upper end of things. Check out their web site. Most everything business-y looking should be just fine.

Hey guys. Which of the cheaper MTM shirt services is the best bang for the buck? I remember reading reviews for modern tailor and some others but I can't remember the names of the other shirt services to search for the threads. I'm in need of a white dress shirt (not sheer) and I have a large neck so I need to go MTM. Also how is the quality of fabric of these sites in comparison to say Brooks Brothers? Thanks for any help.

But not that jacket. The details are important.

I've had lots of success with mytailor.com. Good stiff collar, holds up well. Fabric - hard to say since they have so many options - can't really compare. Can't go wrong with Thomas Mason though.

I don't mind fun socks, and hopefully will be playing down the formalness of the fit a bit so doesn't have to be i-Banker status.

Any advice is appreciated.

So blue pants and brown shoes? On a fun occasion? I suggest lime green or bright purple.

I'm a little unsure as to what constitutes as a "square" toe. Is this a square toe: Would these two be too pointy, and are they still considered "square toed"?: Thanks

Funny you said that - I have a jacket that looks EXACTLY like that by Dunhill. Just a softer leather.

And yes, everyone else and their mother makes that jacket.

Hey, another: Gunboats and longwings: Synonyms?
post #6839 of 33184
So one should just buy any jacket and wear any jeans and any boots with it. Wow who knew fashion so easy.
