Could someone post the link for Manton's (at least, I think it was Manton's) "Good Taste" thread?  I've searched, but I can't find it :-/

I apologize in advance for the bad pictures, sadly I no longer have a photographer. 

 

three options, 

 

1) the shirt is too long

2) the jacket is too short

3) looks fine

 

the second picture is taken at 'handshake' level and extension just for comparison

Reposting a from a thread I made earlier, sorry about that! I can delete the old one if you want. 

 

My question:

Hey guys, I got this blazer at a bargain price yesterday. It says in the item description that it is 'canvassed', but I am not so sure. I will cancel the order if it is fused. I know it is from the 'signature silver' line with a number 1450/1-401183 (fabric/item i think) associated with it. However, I have not been able to find a definitive answer to my question. Anyone familiar with this line/blazer? Thanks!

Are suede Chukkas like Alden's Flex Welt appropriate for year round wear, or do they have a "season"

How does one avoid looking like a security guard when matching lighter pants with darker blazers (or darker blazers with lighter pants...sometimes they both make me think of security guards)?

Since there are probably a lot of ways to answer this question, perhaps I should ask it it reverse: what would one do to look like a security guard when combining blazers with slacks?

If the quality of the garments and accessories is there. the fit spot on, and the shoes something not black, you will not look like a security guard.

You can wear suede year 'round, although Chukkas are a bit of a heavier shoe so I would think they would be most comfortable in fall and winter. Just keep them out of the rain and snow.

Make sure the blazer is two sizes too big. Carry a flashlight. Harass teenagers loitering outside the combination Pizza Hut and Taco Bell.

Exactly what is the difference between PT01's slim fit and bespoke fit? The bespoke fit seems a tiny bit slimmer. Has anyone got any information on this?

Anyone know where this shirt is from?

Looking at picking up a cardigan. I have found a Harry Rosen $70 made in Italy merino wool and a $150 made in Scotland lambswool Howard Yount. My question is, is merino or lambswool necessarily better than the other?

IMO lambswool is gonna last you loner, merino can lose its shape fairly quickly and will pill easier. hence the price difference. but you could always buy 2 colors in merino, etc etc

which will look better with denim, balmoral boots or jodphurs? I need a pair of boots mostly for wear with suits and slacks with odd jackets, which either would work with, but I am curious what people think about the versatility of each. I'm leaning towards jodphur now.
