I think it's fine. I have some Meltonian that I bought in the early 90's that I still use.

Good day gentlemen. I am interested in rules for carrying a wallet. My needs are 2 credit cards, drivers license, 2 checks, insurance card. Are their different wallets I should carry based on attire? (i.e. suit, and carry in jacket inside left pocket). Also, what should I use if I am wearing slacks and a shirt, with no jacket, suggestions?post #9858 of 332959/6/11 at 7:51amQuote:Originally Posted by onefortypoint6

For what you are carrying, a card case would probably be fine. You just carry it in your front pocket. I have a few more cards in my wallet as well as a work ID, subway pass, etc. so I use a fairly slim wallet that folds over once. I carry it in the breast pocket of a jacket when I wear one and in my back pocket when not.post #9859 of 332959/6/11 at 7:55ampost #9860 of 332959/6/11 at 9:11amQuote:Originally Posted by phenom01
I'd say it's an OK deal. From what I've seen, they go for about $85-$100 around here. If you have a hard time finding that size, all the better.post #9861 of 332959/6/11 at 11:04amQuote:
It's almost limitless and the price range can be staggering depending on what you can spend and what kind of leather or other exotic material you want. Mine is from Ralph Lauren, nice leather, and pretty nondescript. I got it quite discounted at a sale and probably would not have paid full price (I can't remember what that was).post #9862 of 332959/6/11 at 12:17pmpost #9863 of 332959/6/11 at 12:24pmJeans are just style of pant, not necessarily denim, so I imagine the pocket placement would be pretty uniform. You might have better luck just searching for denim trousers or chinos...
Anywho, denim Mabitex pop up semi-regularly on MC B&S. I just grabbed a pair, and if you're just looking for a slim chino made out of denim, I recommend them.post #9864 of 332959/6/11 at 12:49pmi've been wearing black shoes with my charcoal suit
and different shades of brown with my navy suit
i have a midnight blue suit on the way from my tailor
it's dark enough that it might even be mistaken for black if seen alone...
do i wear black shoes with the midnight blue suit?
is it too contrasting/flashy to wear brown shoes with it?
i guess i have to see the colors once it arrives
but i was just having a passing thought about it so i'm asking nowpost #9865 of 332959/6/11 at 3:14pmpost #9866 of 332959/6/11 at 3:18pmpost #9867 of 332959/6/11 at 3:52pmQuote:Originally Posted by jc4jax
I apologize for the misinformation. I assumed it was hand tailored in London since it has bespoke on the label but in asking its actually made in the US, i am guessing by Hickey Freeman. It shows Gieves & Hawkes Bespoke on a purple label on the inside jacket but he bought it in the US about 11 yrs ago. It seems to have a good amount of hand tailoring though, but I have been told by this forum a notch DJ is an abomination.
Notch DJ is historically acceptable and popular enough, but the issue is that it's been tainted recently by low end crap, made using business suit patterns, but with faced lapels. The notch lapel has been assosiated with horrible excuses for tuxedos on stupid looking high school students. If it's high quality (Gieves & Hawkes makes this a given) and the other details are right, don't hesitate to wear it.Quote:
These are great. Heavy duty metal rings, thick and heavy webbing. And cheap. And with lots of colors.
The same seller has other listings with lots of other colors.post #9868 of 332959/6/11 at 4:47pmpost #9869 of 332959/6/11 at 4:57pmQuote:Originally Posted by Unrefinery
I got one for $7 from this guy on Ebay.
For a plain military belt (which I didn't realize was what he was asking for), the local army-navy store is your best bet. 50 cents for the buckle (they'll usually have brass, steel, and black), $2 for the belt (Tan, navy, green, and black at mine- some sell various non uniform colors too). If you're paying $5 and shipping, you're getting ripped off.post #9870 of 332959/6/11 at 5:28pm
