Has anyone heard of Berry Sartoriale?  I came across it on ebay and was wondering what the quality was.  The pattern matching across a complicated pattern was pretty much perfect, shoulder looks relatively soft.  Anyone have any experience to actual quality however?

Is it possible/feasible to have shoulder pads removed on a blazer to make it a bit more unstructured?

post #19068 of 29141

Hello all, I am a newbie to this forum, and after a bit of lurking I have finally registered. I look forward to contributing as much as I can to styleforum.

 

I would like to know if any of you have any experience with the brand Ze Garie for suits. I went to a professional suit shop here in my town (not a department store or chain, rather a boutique/warehouse for menswear) and they fit me like a glove. I was able to get a charcoal and navy suit for $300 together. Supposedly they are at least DESIGNED in Italy, and use 140's wool, which beat the Alfani suit I returned to Macy's. However, the website listed on their tag (zegarie.com) doesn't exist, and a google search yields absolutely nothing relevant to the brand in terms of suits. What gives? 

 

Would any of you be able to shed some light on this brand? Even if they're relatively nonexistent I would like to think I got a decent deal for both suits. I am a college student and just started work in a professional environment where I may have to wear a suit every now and then and really wanted to have my own after gathering some knowledge on the internet. I really like the way the suits fit, so I would probably still keep them regardless (which may or may not have something to do with the fact that they were final sale when I bought them at the store). Thanks in advance everyone.

Might anyone know how to remove 'dimples' from the collar of an OCBD Lands End shirt? I have tried ironing with a large amount of pressure, spray water, spray starch, and high steam setting on the iron to no avail. It has been hard to accurately capture this with a picture but perhaps this will appear familiar to someone who may be able to suggest a solution. Thanks.

 

jesPak,

 

 

I'm no expert on the matter; however, it is my opinion that the fusing inside the collar has come loose and created that bubble. I do not think there is much that can be done about that.

 

Best Regards,

I believe there was a thread about this on here... or maybe it was on one of those blogs SF likes. Anyway, to answer your question, yes. It probably won't sit right afterwards, will cost you a great deal of money, and will look worse than before, but it is possible.

Can anyone tell me if these pants can be tapered at all? With there being an elastic cuff at the bottom? 

 

I just got these in the mail today and they clump up at the bottom, and are very loose so they look like MC Hammer pants.

I was thinking about picking up a pair of AE Fifth Aves in brown (I have them in black), but they are so dark in brown that I was wondering if it was worth it. 

 

Would getting the Fifths in brown open up any clothing possibilities, or are they too dark and too formal? Could I wear these with, say, navy dress pants? Probably not chinos, correct?

 

Thank you.

One in Navy certainly can. Especially with its different coloured buttons.
I have one which has brown horn buttons and it goes perfect as an odd jacket.
People will say no as it's part of a suit. But it looks good, so why not.

I was hoping for more comments about the brown ones I posted. Thanks for the reply, though.

I have the brown ones, and I think they are worth getting. They are dark, but not so dark that someone would ever mistake them for black. After a few wears and shines, they start to develop a nice patina. They are also considerably more conservative than the walnut ones and look great with a navy suit.

I think so, especially in navy as powneb noted. To me, the criterion is "is it obviously part of a suit?" Double-breasted and pinstripes jackets are obvious no-no's, but given that this one's a solid color and linen, I don't think anyone's going to know, especially if you change the buttons to, say, dark brown.
