Anyone know how Barena cotton blazers / jackets fit? Looking at one in 42 and I'm normally a 40 but may size up for shoulders / arms in some italian brands

He did a good job with the sole guards, but that is the extent of the maintenance I have needed

Shoes made in Italy vs. made in UK

 

Which country has best quality in general?

That's not really a relevant question... Both countries have manufacturers that produce excellent shoes, and both have manufacturers that produce garbage.

Got a sweater from O'Connell's with the saddle shoulder. Wondering if this thing fits, feels a little snug but perhaps that's alright. Thanks in advance for the feedback.

It looks nice, but to my eye it feels like the sleeves are a bit short. Maybe have your shirt sleeve poking out?

There is no definitive answer but British shoes are generally goodyear welted while the Italians like to use a lot of different methods. You can get a goodyear welt resoled easily always, some of the others might be harder

Sleeves are way too short up there!

You need a larger size.And these Shetland pullovers are worn with the cuff rolled to the right length so it's too short.

P.S. these are not meant to be tight body fitting and it would be uncomfortable to wear it tight. You'd be hot too every time you went inside. btw, people sometimes would even roll the bottom ribbing. That one is also too short.

As already mentioned, yes. If you can only afford one shoe, and it has to be a PTB, you can also give the kenilworths consideration. They seem to be pretty versatile and on my purchase list.

How do I know which manufactures that produce the best shoes?

Hello,

 

I was wondering what color/style pants would go with these shoes. 

 

Thank you for your time and help.

Question:

 

When would it be appropriate to wear these shoes in black? What kind of pants would be all right? Would jeans be too much? I'm new to this whole "caring about how you look" thing. Basically, I'm a colorblind fashion newb who needs as much help as he can get.

 

Thank you!

 

I also have a pending post with an inserted pic with a different pair of shoes.
