I have done so much research on these forums and Oxxford suits seem to be good value for mone.

 

Thanks

Oxxford makes, arguably, the best american made suit. Their cut and styling can be a little boxier (read, more american) than an italian suit, but their construction is on par with Kiton. Their off the racks suits start at $2k and generally are seen in the $3-4.5k range (USD). So if the measurements for this suit (that you listed above) are spot on for you, it would be considered a deal, not a steal. The problem i find with ebay is that you cannot check the garment before you buy it. While the suit looks (and probably is) brand new, you cannot check the fabric/color styling and fit before you buy so it is a bit of a shot in the dark and it is a lot of money. My advice, go for it under the condition that if you are unhappy with it (if it doesnt fit right and cannot be altered), you can send it back (which who knows the sealer will go for). If you spend that kind of money, i would make sure it is exactly what you want.

PM the seller on the forum; his name is Vman. He might be able to knock down the price a bit; he's a great seller.

Thank you

All I need are the actual metal taps. Thanks!

Bumping this.

Better how? Lower price or higher quality?

Thanks, I suspected there is a conceptual divide inbetween these seasons.

I am a size 9, how do I know how to pick the size that will fit me best?
post #20728 of 28664

New to the forum.  Decided I want a nice pair of leather oxford shoes.  Always worn shit dress shoes and hiking boots so I'm new to this.  Tried a few pairs of Park Avenues on and the closest size is 9 EE (US).  My heels move about 1/2 to 3/4 of an inch when I walk, otherwise it's pretty snug.  Is this normal?

 

I have my heart set on a pair of benchmade GG shoes (they look stunning compared to AE) but the closet brick and mortar is Leffots which is a 4 hour drive.  Are there any online dealers that will let me return or exchange a pair if the fit is not right?  What size should I pick?  My feet are wide. How much does is cost for a resole?  $1300 to $1500 is a lot to drop on shoes.  I'm not wealthy but don't mind spending money on something if I use it daily.  The fit would have to be perfect though.

Need advice on party attire...

My Gf's surprise 50th party is coming up in 10 days. Her daughter has set an animal theme to the party. She wants everyone to attend to wear something animal print ect...my gf chose a dress with zebra print, so I purchased a matching tie. The men were advised to wear suits, however I don't think I want to wear a full suit so I'm thinking about going with a pair of nice denim jeans and a sport coat.

My problem is tying this all tog in terms of shoes(color), jeans(brand and color)and of course what color dress shirt and coat to go with all this. Any advice would be great...thanks!
