post #18601 of 28369
Hey guys I'm looking to buy a boot that is durable and has excellent quality yet can be worn around the city with jeans or khakis. Style is, in this case, more important for me than durability because these will only be worn on walks in the city but I still want them to be able to hold up in mild weather conditions (heavy rain). As a result, waterproof would be nice but not necessary. I've come up with

Danner Tanner Goods Mountain Trail Left Bank

Diemme roccia waxed suede
http://www.mrporter.com/product/316825

Alden Indy Kudu (or any Indy you guys would recommend)
http://leffot.com/shop/alden-indy-boot-kudu-404/

Which ones, on or not on the list, would you guys recommend I get? Thanks!

Hello Everyone!

 

I am updating my closet and getting rid of all my hollister/express jeans and starting off with something more plain and simple. What would yall suggest in Levi's the 514 or the 501 shrink to fit? I tried them on and felt them in the store the other day and the 501's felt way more durable and raw if that makes any sense. Thanks!

This may be an incredibly layman question... Can someone explain to me the main differences between a suit and a sports jacket. Obviously each are worn for different reasons, but are there any differences structurally besides some occasional buttons on the lower arm?

Fabric and buttons.

I think its safe to say that we all need a little help with color coordination from time to time!

I just got a jacket from indochino. Overall it is flattering but I have a small "X" on the button. I could live with that but the jacket bottom (when buttoned) pulls apart on the bottom and shows a bit of shirt.

Can tailoring fix that? Will an inch of extra room at the buttoning point fix that or does it require a different alteration?

Grey typically adds neutrality to a color scheme, so if you can balance it out with a pastel color like a lilac shirt or a light pink shirt, I think it would look really sharp.  You'd want to avoid the dark grey flannel though.  Just my opinion.

eBay has been phasing in a new design, with different people getting it at different times.

What exactly are the differences in buttons between a sportcoat and suit jacket?

I don't know the differences as far as buttons are concerned, but sports coats can - and should - have more patterns and designs than suits, which are meant to be understated and conservative. Sport coats can have herringbone, hounds tooth, glen plaid, tweed styles/fabrics and louder colors than do suits. You can have more "fun" with sport coats than you can with suits.

Also, sport coat fabrics are usually heavier than suit fabrics.

Hi, I'm after a 1930/40's sweatshirt. Kind of like the Buzz Ricksons ones but much cheaper!

Any suggestions?

 

Thanks

True but what about if it's a navy blazer but without gold buttons? How would you be able to tell the difference between that and a suit jacket?
