post #16696 of 28577

Greetings all.

 

As a newbie in all things style I need some help. I read that after I shave I need to use an aftershave (also a newbie in shaving at 42 years). Does the aftershave have to be the same brand as my cologne? And wouldn't having aftershave/deodorant/cologne  be way over the top and overpower each other? And what deodorant is good? Is the stuff from the supermarket suitable or, again, do I match it with a cologne? And what about powders (talcs etc) do I need that too? I ought some aftershave from the supermarket (Imperial Leather) but even my untrained nose can tell it isn't the full chop, so some ideas please.

you don't need to buy the same brand aftershave as your cream.

aftershave will reduce infections from any cuts, moisturize skin, and add a scent - those 3 reasons are the most important.

The rest is all your preference, I recommend using a mole hair brush with a little cream mixed. Use hot water to loosen your beard and open your pores. apply the cream well and wait a moment. then shave with a safety razor very lightly, use it's weight to make the cut. I have thick hair so i swipe and clean short amounts of the stubble off at a time. Don't rub your face with a towel, gently pat it and do the same after when you apply the aftershave

It was the aftershave & cologne I was asking about, but thank you your post has given some much needed direction.

Dear Experts,

 

I recently bought two Corneliani Cerimonia suits, beautiful black pinstripes with peak lapels.

Upon arriving, I was a bit puzzled:

 

.)A tag inside says "Nitor Taranto" aswell with "Corneliani" - I can't find anything about this and haven't seen it before?

.)The tag on the sleeve is in grey colors (aswell as inside) instead of black and the sleeves feature five buttons (like on the "trend" line)?

.)The pinch test for canvassing would suggest that this is a glued suit - and oddly I am not able to softly tear the inlay from the thicker (in)side?

 

As the price ($650 in sale) and the sales persons opinion would suggest is that it is on par with the mainline - but it is really? For a gluejob it is too much I guess.

 

I'm all confused - could you help out please?

I have seen the drop number used with a sports coat. Makes no sense.

I need a cobbler recommendation in London.
One of my pair of goodyear-welted dress shoes has a hole in the sole and I need it to be repaired.
I am terribly afraid to get it repaired wrongly by someone who has no idea what he is doing.

If your shoes are English made you could contact the maker and arrange for the replacement of the sole. This may be more expensive than using a regular cobbler but it promises your shoes will be perfect when you get them back.

I contacted the maker and it is an "independent" brand, they recommended me to go to a cobbler.

A sportcoat still goes around your waist. A higher drop sportcoat may have more waist suppression.

Is taking out the cloth inside the sleeve the only way to increase sleeve length? I have heard it is possible to bring down the whole arm from the shoulder. Is that true?

Only if there is seam allowance at the shoulder. There's likely to be more at the end of the sleeve.

Hi guys! First post. I'm an attorney.
1. I need a light, casual, stylish jacket for Las Vegas winters and occasional travel to San Francisco for work. Water proof would therefore be useful. Brands appreciated.
2. What business-ish jacket can I buy that will go with any pants? Dark blazer? I'm talking slacks, dockers, etc. I need an emergency jacket to hang behind the door in an otherwise business casual office.

1. Trenchcoat fits the bill.

2. Navy Blazer would be my choice. Unless you wear jeans/navy pants a lot, then Navy looks weird.
