One of their Saxxon fabrics is what I consider to be a birdseye. It may be the one that they call "Tic" in their descriptions, but I can't see enough detail in their photos to be sure. It is a dark blue which moves toward a slate blue, but is not as dark as BB navy.

I've got a pair of Velvet Stubbs and Wootton smoking slippers...is there any product that can be used to keep them clean? I know Scotchgard isn't a good idea for velvet. I've also got a pair made out of taprestry, like what you hang on a wall, basically carpet...can I scotchgard those or use a dif product?

They're okay if you are tall, since they make the wearer look shorter. They're not as classic and timeless as the 2-button.

I love 3 button suit and I think they are more timeless than 2 button. It seems to "fill out" the suit better.

Why go to all that trouble and just not button the top button?

Just wondering thoughts on this... I'm a rookie with suits lol so I'm tryna soak up a lot of knowledge here and there. Ill probably keep it 3 button just to have a different look.

Just making sure there isn't a certain occasion to wear it and etc

A 3-button is actually more versatile than a 2-button because you can fasten only the centre button to get a similar button stance, or fasten the top button as well for more formal occasions (or windy days).  No special occasion is required of course, but 3-buttons are best with some horsehair canvas in the front to get a good lapel roll.  A sharply pressed lapel is murder on the versatility of a 3-button.  Tailoring to get the 2-button look is not required.  I've got a marvellous 3-button late 50's/early 60's sportcoat in a small black/orange houndstooth with a subtle blue windowpane pattern (trust me, the fabric isn't as loud as it sounds) and it's surprisingly enough become a staple of my day-to-day wardrobe.  I just button it wherever my mood dictates and away I go.

I've got a picture of a sport shirt here i'm dying to find the brand of. Any chance anyone might recognize the brand or might be willing to help out? It has a light blue/white check pattern, white inner collar, white trim down the button pannel, and bright blue buttons. Anyone have an idea?

Thanks for the response! Do you recognize it or is that just a guess? Surely someone here has hopefully come across it!

Hey guys,

I got a great briefcase from a friend. He doesn't remember where he got it and there is no mention of a brand name on it. It only says "City Line" on the front and there is an inscription on the inside that says "citare questo numero incaso di reclamo 3". It also says "made in italy" on the zippers. The leather feels great and I'm just curious whether anyone can point me towards the maker?
