Ask him if he's ever heard of Barba or Borrelli.

well... he's wrong without a doubt. There are FAR superior shirts from makers all around the world..and as you'll find on here, bespoke makers that exceed in fit and quality that OTR just cannot match. that being said, not all of their stuff is the obnoxious crap with which I'm sure you're familiar. Like many fashion labels it's certainly overpriced at retail but I've also bought items in Burberry boutiques at 50% off or more during sales so there are still some good things to be had... I just remembered I have a great wool sweater as well that is understated, well-made and very comfy. anyway... you can take some points... he's full of it. but check out the different lines... they really do have different aesthetics and you may find something to change your opinion a bit. fing02[1].gif

after saying he thought B'brry was the SHIT I'd venture a "No".

btw.. he goes to Case so he's probably busy jerking off to a picture of a customized motherboard or some shit. (not you Steez, your buddy! jk) tongue.gif

Absolutely.  Make sure your tie is as well and probably best to stick with a white shirt.  Just my suggestion.

What do you know about conservative? confused.gif

thanks for the reply.

how about windowpane vs navy stripe (formality level)?

425

vs

529

I'd say navy pin stripe over glen plaid. Then again if you're buying a suit for interviews I'd probably stick with a solid navy or dark gray to be safe.

Is this suit worth having fitted ?
It doesn't need much to fit me..

Any suggestions on a good summer sportscoat for less than $200.

An Oxxford? Absolutely.

I just had a wristwatch strap replaced. How do I go about preventing the strap from becoming all worn from the buckle?

hey everyone came across a GQ article on boat shoes that had a pair I really like. but the linked product is definitely not the pictured pair.

Does anyone know where I might be able to find these? (#4 on the list, 3rd from the bottom)

thanks

Is this conservative enough for job interviews, normal formal events, etc?

What BB suit is this? Thanks.

How difficult (expensive) would it be to re cut a long suit jacket to a regular?  Also, is this commonly done?

 

Thanks.

I've contemplated this on a nice jacket i've seen on steep discount. Button & pocket placement seems to be what most people point out as being problematic. That and the fact that if the pocket depth is too close to the bottom of the coat, it will be extremely difficult for a tailor to reduce the length. Maybe a pic with the jacket on will be a good judge of how well the alterations will go?

Yeah, I would say anything more than 1/2" you're getting into trouble.

I think 1/2 would work perfectly as I'm right on the cusp between reg and long...only 6 ft tall but have 35 sleeves...is it something that most tailors can do?
