Thanks in advance!

Khakis. In pretty much any color. Or yes, jeans.

Also, perhaps rougher wools. Heavy flannels, tweeds.

Buy or Pass:

This is about as high as my budget can stretch for a new suit. I need a charcoal one and am a 38L (kind of hard to find). Also, is this suit too dark...should i go for a lighter charcoal or even medium gray? I would be wearing it to work in a law office. Thanks for the input!

hickeys are pretty good suits - half-canvassed. Now discontinued. I was actually looking @ the hickey herringbone blazer on that Suit Up sale.

Just remember, with Gilt if you try it and it's not the fit you like, you're stuck with "gilt credit," which might be an annoyance at $500...

I'm trying to decide between AE Burgundy Shell, I've narrowed it down to Leeds (Blucher Plain), Cambridge (Oxford Brogued), and MacNeil (Blucher Brogued).

Is the Brogued Oxford more formal than the plain Blucher? SHould either of the blucher's be worn with a suit?

If you could get only one pair of shell, which one of these would be most versatile?

Thanks for the quick response/input. Getting stuck with "gilt credit" is my main concern and the main reason I haven't purchased the suit already. However, I am also kind of worried that it will look too dark...I don't want a black suit.

I may be biased because I own the shell macneils, but I think they are the best of the 3 you mentioned. I'm not a fan of the leeds at all. Just too plain. The cambridge is nice, but I think it's better with calf because it is a dressier shoe than the macneil or leeds. The macneil is pretty versatile. You can wear it with jeans, khakis, or slacks. The cambridge would probably be too dressy to wear with jeans.

I agree, get the Macneils. I own a pair of used burgundy shell Cambridges myself but I would've bought the Macneils if I was looking at full price brand new shoes. I wear my cambridges with jeans but at 20 years old you can get away with those kinda things

For the record, if you're around a Saks Off 5th or a Nordstrom Rack (I live in MPLS and have both), you can find totally comparable suit prices. With a size such as 38L (I am personally not aware of how uncommon it is, I'm a 40L), you might have more luck than a 40/42R. Century 21 in NYC, or Filene's basement might have similar deals.

I think, frankly, Gilt is a silly way to buy a suit, unless you're young and don't have a lot of cash, and need a cheap john varvatos suit for $200 (or if you know very well how Brunello Cucinelli, for example, fits you). I've been stuck with gilt credit once before and was unhappy about it.

How much fabric do I need for the lining of a 40R jacket? Half as much if it's half-lined, or a little more?

Hi, anyone know where can I find thin white rounded laces for dress shoes (which are also white) with just 3 eyelets?

You're asking about an unknown stain on an unknown material. If somebody tells you yes/no they'll be only guessing.

We need:

Coat brand
Coat cloth
Cloth Finish
Age of Coat
Aprox age of stain
Colour of coat
Colour of stain
Price of coat
Discount offered for the damage
If you have a good dry cleaner near by

Then we could make a semi-educated guess

What would this pocket square (cotton, but in the drake's Mughal tapestry pattern go with?

Suit? Odd Jacket/Tweed? Or nothing at all because a pattern like this should be in silk?

What is this jacket worth? Today i found a beautiful Brooks Brothers blazer on ebay. However, it is a bit pricey, and I am concerned that i might be paying to much if i purchase the item at the set price. Brand: Brooks Brothers It is 100% wool It is partially lined Those are the only details listed about the blazer. Please help me with the value / worth of this jacket.. Also, what price is too high and what price is too low, etc. Here are the pictures:
