For suit jackets does fully lined and fully canvassed mean the same thing or are they different?
post #17808 of 28887

Totally different. Lining is just the fabric covering the inside of your suit, usually a shiny material. I think it adds weight to your suit.

Canvassing deals with the construction of the jacket; some canvas is placed under the wool to help the jacket maintain its shape.

Thanks. I'm also having a little dilemma here you may be able to offer some advice on. I ordered a charcoal gray Benjamin suit from ehaberdasher. Very nice suit and I love the color, unfortunately it's too small on me. The only Benjamin they have in my size is the medium gray, but it seems from what I've read charcoal or navy's the way to go. I'm not wearing it for work if that matters, just want a suit to wear to nice places. I'm also pretty pale and have heard medium gray is more of a summer color. The other option is going to Brooks Brothers and paying more money, but I could get the charcoal gray I like.

So I guess my main question is how do Brooks Brothers suits (1818) compare in quality to Benjamin? And any other advice you could offer with regards to the colors. I'm also on a short time frame so waiting for ehaberdasher to restock isn't really an option.

I bought a pair of Allen Edmonds in dark brown and one is a lighter shade than the other. This is my first pair of good shoes. Should I take them back or is this normal? If I polish them will they be cool?

Can anyone recommend a pair of brown leather lace-ups (with rubber sole) that I can wear in the winter and won't worry about them getting ruined in the snow?

price range?

<$200, the cheaper the better. Looking for something that looks like the shoe in my avatar, but more casual.

Does dark brown corduroy 5 pocket trousers go relatively well with black 3/4 length wool coat? I have no country colour clothings on my autumn/winter wardrobe so either that, or I should buy some country colour sweaters.

Hi StyleForum - I'm a newbie to both the forum and men's fashion, and have been trying to slowly improve my wardrobe.  At the moment, I'm interested in getting some ankle boots - and I'm curious if I'm on the right track in terms of identifying quality products.  I'm attracted to this pair of chukkas, and plan on exploring a bit to see if I can find a comparable pair for less expensive...thoughts?

2. I want to keep my shoes maintenance down to as minimal as possible because I don't have any opportunities to wear them right now, at least not until next year, so the shoes is going to be in storage most of the time right now. Can I just do shoes cream without the polish? I don't care for the shine that much, just want the leather to be properly care for. Also, people say that polish protects the shoes from weather better but also dry out the leather so can I just not use it? Plus, I'm still a newbie so I don't want to have to deal with wax build up/cleaning it out once in a while. I am still in college so funds is limited. Would a horse hair brush and can of AE shoes cream be sufficient?

I DID and RAPED the search engine so please, just give me the answers to my questions, lol THANKS!!

Hey I just bought the Park Avenues in 10 D as well and bought shoe trees from AE directly. They chose a medium shoe tree and it fits perfectly. Go with medium.

So I bought 3 trousers, all the same fit but in different colors and fabric. These were close to $200 each, so I don't want them ruined by taking them to a place that doesn't know what they're doing but I also don't want to go to a place which will cost an arm and a leg. Kind of looking for that middle ground where there is value.

Anyways, I have to let the waist out probably an inch, have them hemmed as they are all with an unfinished hem, and perhaps cuff them. What is the price I should be looking at per pant to have these 3 things done? I'm assuming cuffing them costs too, correct? I've been to this one place before which charged $20 to hem a pant I had. Will seem like an awful lot if I take it to the same place and have all 3 hemmed plus all the other stuff.

Lastly, is there a general rule with cuffs as to how many inches they should be? I am 6'0 and 155 lbs if that matters. I want them to look neat, not too big or small, if that makes sense.
