The standard size of an ascot is 6" x 48", and is often consisted of 2 pieces sewed together face to face. So given an inch for sewing -> 7" x 49". At the bottom line, you need two pieces of 7" x 49".

I've got a white linen shirt with faint blue stripes. If I soaked it in a bowl of wine, could I end up with a pink and blue, RLPL-ish colored linen shirt, or just a ruined one?

(This always seems to work on TV ).

Two questions on Allen Edmonds shoes before I pull the trigger here:

1. AE mcallisters in walnut for 240. Is this a good deal or can I get them cheaper new?

2. This will be my second pair of shoes for my second suit. I already own a charcoal suit and black park aves. I am buyimg a navy suit soon and need a brown/tan pair. really like the walnut mcallisters but also have the option of brown strands. Can I make the walnut mcallisters work or are the brown strands safer?

A slightly stupid q, but here goes ... If you had to guess the collar height and length of the collar (at point) what would it be ?

Walnut will look great with the navy suit, but for my taste the McAllisters have just too much broguing to be worn with a suit. I would go for walnut Strands, or even a cleaner model like FA or PA.

First time poster, but long time lurker here.

I have one question regarding the shirt Brooks Brothers sell.

What exactly is the difference between their Dress Shirts and Sport Shirts?

They seem to have the same cutting

colors/style and buttons for the most part. Dress shirts you wear with a coat and tie, sport shirts you don't

Not thinking too heavily and eager to throw on some color, I combined the two. Sure it's a loud statement, but the pants matched perfect with the colors on the shirt, even if the pants did reinforce the watermelon vibe that the shirt already going for it.

My girlfriend saw the outfit later in the day and her reaction was to ask me if I had gone outside yet. According to her, waaay too much going on, and the garish colors make me look like a golfer. Of course I stubbornly defended myself, but inside I felt ashamed and could easily see her point.

Was this a huge fashion mishap as I'm starting to think it was, or do I have allies here on SF that can give me permission to let my quasi-obnoxious hipster flag fly??

I'm in the GF's camp but hey it's only my opinion.

I'd do the shirt by itself with other separates in subdued colors - say under a navy V neck sweater and with a pair of khakis.

I'd approve of the combination only if you're auditioning for a Bollywood part.

The Mcallister and the Strands are equally acceptable styles. If the Strand is dark brown, I would go with it because dark brown is more versatile than walnut for the darker suit colors that you have.

Anyone know if the Allen Edmonds Shelton (walnut/brown) is made of corrected grain leather?

Can anyone help me find a megathread that describes different suit/SC brands and models and their general cuts or aesthetic (RLBL - very slim, Kiton - more full cut, etc) ? I guess I'm not using the right search terms.

Can anyone recommend a cheaper alternative to J Press for a quality navy blazer with gold buttons?
