i.e. silk on one side and cashmere on the other, of good quality for less than $300? Thanks!

PS if it were Drakes that would be amazing!

Not under $300, but Drakes, and reversable silk and cashmere:

Thank you for clearing up. I was a bit confused at the first response. Those two name brands were the first two that came to my head. I'm here to learn smile.gif. Thanks for the help.

Not really relevant, but I thought I'd share.

Do any of you recommend wearing a tie with a tartan (not flannel) button-up? I have a dark green tartan shirt with hints of blue and yellow and trying to incorporate fall into the business casual look. Any suggestions? Or best to eschew a tie or opt for another shirt pattern?

I would like to know is there anywhere good to find some good green clothes, I find it quite difficult to find any I know what I generally want.
Some dark green foresty patterns would be cool, also curious to see some black and green tie dye.
I can only find ugly lime green clothes.
I would have thought green dye would be easy to come by, last I checked there were quite a few plants that are green and almost every military wears green as the default.

Search for "fitted caps"

Is there an "appropriate age" to consider a slimmer cut suit? I am 53 years old, 5'9" and 160 Lbs, very fit. I see slimmer cuts like the Fitzgerlad and the Milano, but not sure if that is more appropriate for someone younger than my age?

Probably not a style for you. And honestly, I don't think you're missing out on much (speaking as a guy in his mid 20s). That being said, if you look good, you look good, and nobody will question you.

Agree. Super slim is just a trend anyway, and a pretty bad one. Who wants a jacket with paper thin lapels that ends at their belt? Apparently a lot of people ...
post #17848 of 28327
I'm not sure BB's Fitzgerald qualifies as "super slim". Also, "slim" does not necessarily mean a jacket that is too tight and too short - length, cut, armhole height, lapel width, button stance, etc. are all separate considerations.

Cabana, don't be afraid of the Fitzgerald, if you like it and you think it looks good (post pics if you're not sure). Milano, maybe be afraid of. But the Fitzgerald suits are not so "trendy" as to quickly go out of fashion, IMO, provided you get something in the appropriate size and length.

I've been thinking about getting a pair of Magnanni Francesco's.
Most of my shoes are C&J an on the 348 last.
My question is do you think these will be much "pointier" than the above?

Many thanks

Can any tall guys recommend brands for sweaters? Preferably a slimmer fit and in the $75-$200 range. I just tried on quite a few sweaters at Nordstrom and only found one brand (Vince?) that was both long enough and slim fitting. Just went through this same ordeal trying to find simple v-necks for summer, grrrrrrrrr.
