I've been lurking, just recently signed up. There's usually not that much explanation, though..usually just that something doesn't "work" or comments on somebody's fit. I know it's all about aesthetics, I guess I just haven't trained my eye to catch what works and what doesn't yet..just looking for some pointers.

I think it was serious suggestion. Well...sort of. I think the best way to get this stuff is osmosis. Just keep looking at what people praise, think about what you like about it, and you'll notice your choices in purchasing and wearing improve organically.

 

Though by all means, post while doing so (so I suppose...don't lurk more...but observe plenty)

Cole Haan does not get a lot of love on these forums, in my opinion for good reason - they are not a good shoe.

Why do some thermals/t shirts give me the appearance of man boobs, even though I have none? Not every shirt, just every now and then I'll try something on, and boom.
What kind of boxers are best for wearing under skinnier clothes? I recently picked up some Levis 508s (tapered) and I'm still always struggling with my boxer briefs rolling up on the leg and causing discomfort. And when I wear skinny chinos (not too skinny, they fit fine in the waist) some of them still show a dreaded outline even though there's plenty of loose fabric. I'm thinking I need something that keeps me held in better. Any help appreciated. I really think it's a problem with the underwear, since I'm having problems even when wearing 508s. Same problem with my APC NS.
Finally, in the levi's 508's I got, I tend to roll up the bottoms once for a nicer look. However, the jeans don't seem to want to stay rolled and 5 minutes later the small cuff I created in the pants has gotten bigger. Is this just due to cheap denim? Anything I can do to keep a cuff in place without pinrolling?

Check with SW&D.

I disagree completely.

"Break" is a term used for pants to describe how the hem falls. Usually described as "no break," "slight break", or "full break." Can look those up on your own.

"Stacks" is a denim nerd term for how jeans with a longer inseam "stacks" or bunches up around your ankles if the opening is narrow enough.

What do you guys think of the quality of Corneliani leather jackets? I know Corneliani is well regarded when it comes to suits but I couldn't find any relevant information on its leather jackets... Iam specifically interested in the Corneliani ID brand (which as I understand is more fashion-forward but compromises on quality. Don't know whether there are leather jackets on the mainline though)
Thanks in advance for you input and thoughts!

So, does no one have any experience with (or overall opinion about) the quality of Corneliani leather goods, or should I post the question on a different thread?
Thanks again and sorry to bump my question, but I was encouraged by the questions of previous posters (mine cannot be that bad)

Re the question about Mourinho's coat, I'm not 100% sure but I recall the press in the UK saying it was Ermenegildo Zegna.

  1. Men's Bachrach Polo Style Sweater, Size M, Made in Italy, 40% Acrylic, 30% Cotton, 30% Wool
  2. Men's Idea Uomo Cardigan Sweater, Size L, Made in Italy, 70% Acrylic, 30% Wool

Thanks

Start them on e-bay for $5 and let them go as high as they will. Neither of them are good sweaters, you shouldn't expect too much.

Does anyone have suggestions for custom shirts? I'm currently looking for 1-2 nice shirts that will actually fit me better (since I'm so skinny ffffuuuu.gif and I already go slim fit) than the RTW I buy at stores. I'm looking to order one with Mina and NSM but does anyone have other suggestions?

Joseph A Bank has a doorbuster sale today on their merino wool topcoats for $99. Are they worth it? I've definitely been in the market for one and the price is ridiculous.

It doesn't look bad on the website but I've never been impressed by JAB products in the past. And don't rely on the "sale" vs. retail price of $450. I doubt that coat was ever sold for $450. JAB is notorious for misleading sales.

But if you don't have a topcoat, can't wait to peruse ebay or the B&S, can't save money for anything better, and have already visited your local thrift shops and come back empty-handed then go ahead.

I have a handful of different things to say.  First of all, I would recommend Luxire, Solosso, or Modern Tailor to get some custom shirts made to your size without breaking the bank.  Beyond that if you like some more hand stitched good really slim fit stuff, Borelli, Barba, and Zegna all make some great RTW shirts with some better fabrics that are slim fit (I am in the same boat, about a 17" waist on my shirts but an 18" shoulder, its tough to find good shirts).  Find one shirt that fits you well, then take all the measurements and tweak them a touch if necessary.

Are wool ties supposed to be skinny or at least thinner than regular silk ties? I am trying to buy a check wool tie, but most of the ones I find are probably 3" or maybe 2.75". I usually wear a 3.25-3.5" tie.

post #18688 of 28717
They should be the same size. I would just change the maker's that you are looking at.

Where do you live, what's your budget?

Yes I think they look better a little thinner than silk ties. Not quite sure why though.

Boston. My budgets around 600-700. Would like to get 2 shirts for that price though. I'm unsure about Zegna and their fit since their suits aren't slim at all, so I'm guessing their shirts won't be as slim fit? I've tried Thomas Pink but returned since I didn't really enjoy the quality for the price.

I think I might try Napoli Su Misure when she comes to Boston next week. Are Charvet RTW worth the $300 price? After this, going to start ordering from Luxire instead of RTW shirts ffffuuuu.gif

I'm just looking for 1-2 really well fitting shirts for more important occasions. Thanks
