They are hand-me-down Johnston & Murphy chelsea boots from the late 80s to early 90s. They are made in Italy; the calf skin seems good quality when compared to Allen Edmonds and Ferragamo.

1998 called and asked if they could have those back.

 

I'm sorry man, it's too bad that these are so offensive.  I'd have to vote no-go on these. 

 

Aaah, jesus... I just looked at the picture again.

I always tread with a great deal of caution when matching blazers.  Steer clear of trying to mess with a black blazer. 

thx everyone that replied. .  The consensus I'm getting is light colored pants(mid gray, creme, beige). and maybe purple shoe laces  ;-)

Could anyone recommend a source for good rtw shirt jackets/safari-type jackets? I want a nice linen one for the summer. Preferably in UK or EU.

I own both that Kenmoor model (stamped pebble grain) and the Veblen in grey waxed leather ... they make for great casual shoes if purchased for less than half of MSRP.
I find the Kenmoor is built with just a little more care than the Veblen.

I recently bought a pair of Edward Green Chelseas in Black Calf. I looked inside at the shoe sock/insole and noticed that the insole was made of a wooden material with a thin leather pad glued onto the heel area over the insole. I was wondering what you guys thought of the 'wooden' aspect of the insole? This is the first time i saw an insole made of wood/wood laminate. Thanks guys!

Just got my "Napoli Navy Plain"-suit from Suitsupply, EU size 46. Does it fit?

I guess the sleeves on the jacket are too short, or maybe my shirt extends too far down. Or both, I don't know. Could anyone make a judgement?

Looks short to me.

I picked up a pair of AE Strands in Walnut but before I walk out the door with them wanted to find out if I should seriously consider something like the C&J Barrington in Tan.  What differences am i going to see/feel in that type of an upgrade?

 

Thanks.

Thanks.

I have sold many pairs of C&J (for Peal & Co) shoes and several pairs of AE (for Brooks Brothers). I am usually not too excited about the AE's but recently had a pair of dark brown Strands. Damn, those were nice. Now I want a pair. The C&J shoe may be a little bit nicer, but you will be paying quite a lot for that little bit.

I currently have a grey 3 piece suit from Ted Baker. I'm 19 years old, and i'm looking to get my next suit. I cannot afford a bespoke savile Row, so it'll likely have to be off the peg. What is the best brand to look for? I'm likely looking at a blue 3 piece, and then i'll get myself a pair of Church's Brogues

Does anyone know why guys wear black to the high school prom? It's like they are going to a funeral. Why not navy? o.o Anyone have answers?

Fear not, there are a multitude of options at various price points between Ted Baker and Savile Row. It is a subject that has come up here once or twice before - try the search function and read through some existing threads on the matter. Likewise shoes (it is generally agreed that there are better options than Church's).

They know no better.

Short, and looks like you have a little collar gap going on.

Try posting on the ask a tailor thread.
