I'd call it a glen plaid pattern. If you wanted to be more specific: a glen plaid tweed jacket.

first post after months of lurking. Yes, these did get me to take the time to create a username. I'm a college student on a pretty strict budget, so no idea if I can afford these, but someone please fill me in on what these are. I have an obsession with suede! the details just say "clark 2.0"

Does the quality of fabric-weaving affect the wrinkle factor?

This is the 89th version of the "is it shell" question. Sorry.

They are vintage Florsheim Imperial PTB. The numbers inside are 92606CB. Also, 618140.

My pictures aren't great because what looks almost like micro wrinkles here looks more like built up something IRL. Still maybe you can help.

Hard to tell from the pic, but given what they look like and your comment that what looks like wrinkles is really build-up, I'd vote shell. If the whiteness brushes out, leaving the ripples but evening out the color, then it's definitely shell.

Are all Façonnable pants made in Portugal made by Incotex?

Thanks.

Why don't you ask the dude who posted them on tumblr? Looks like a variation of the Clarks Mead Wing.

I just realized one of my T&A shirts came back from being washed and ironed with a rip near the collar. Should I make the next one out of my dry cleaner's skin?

Looking to get edumacated on dress socks and belts. I want to know what to look for in quality of both, and or a thread to help me get started. Also - any resources on what to look for in a quality shoe tree/where to find quality shoe trees for a reasonable price would be great. Thanks.

You can get raw cedar shoe trees by Woodlore (AE subsidiary?) for about $10 a pair in places like K and G and Nordstrom Rack.

Picking up a H&C shirt white shirt. Two options: Poplin and End on End. I'm not entirely clear on the difference. Business casual environment (tie w/ no jacket) and I walk a few blocks to work in the summer heat. Thoughts?

Except that it's not made out of tweed! That is a type of fabric, and is not the fabric used in that coat. Tweed is a heavy, rough, unfinished twill. That is not tweed. The photos are not good enough to see the weave, so I can't tell you what it is, but I can tell you that it ain't tweed. This is tweed: This is a tweed jacket:

I my opinion, neither. I have 2. Their collars are ridiculously tall, easy to wrinkle, and 'slim' fits fit like a tent. The most use I got out of them are the supplied collar stays - haven't touched the shirts in months.

I also find Kabbaz's guide to shirt fabrics over at AAAC a real good little guide on different weaves and patterns.
