Hey guys, what do you think about these shoes? http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-Tommy-Hilfiger-Casual-Leather-Shoes-US9-EU43-Made-in-Italy-/271211265840?pt=US_Men_s_Shoes&hash=item3f25737f30

I would like to wear it with navy chinos and dark blue jeans.. Mostly casual wear. Thanks.

I think they're cheap crap with a brand name in them.  Don't buy them.  Read around this forum and take the leap on some "proper" shoes, even if they're "entry-level" e.g. Goodyear welted L1 Loake or Meermin Linea Classica: they're still far ahead of these turdies for about the same price.

I recently acquired a vintage glen plaid 3 piece in heavy wool, tweed-like fabric; and I was just wondering whether if it's excessively loud. I am hoping that I could keep this for the fall/snow seasons here in Norther Michigan. The item was relatively cheap, keep or return? shog[1].gif

Too loud to wear for business, but just fine for a variety of non-business purposes. I'd keep it.

I phrase my answer this way, as many people regard a suit purely as an "office uniform" (and perhaps the occasional wedding or funeral), so when they ask "Is it too loud?" what they mean is "Is it too loud to wear to work?" Not saying that's what you were asking, just that it's how more than a few people think. And that suit wouldn't be what I'd wear to go on a job interview, or to address the Board, or to attend the deposition of one of the other side's witnesses, or to a funeral, or so on.

Oh, I'll also point out that for various reasons, it's also essentially a daytime suit. I'd be considerably less inclined to wear it in the evening.

But for daytime, wintertime, non-business wear? Looks like a keeper to me.

I agree- keep and and use it as a weekend suit. I think it will be fine.

Hello everybody. I'm looking to buy a grenadine tie online, and I ran across a peculiar tie in an old selling thread. I was wondering if it's grenadine. It looks like it is, but I'm not quite sure. Any second thoughts would be much appreciated. Thank you.

Pretty sure that isn't grenadine. Grenadine fabric is a loose weave produced on special looms from two mills in Italy. These are grenadines (from Sam Hober)

 

grossa

 

fina

 

prometeo

 

piccola

Great answer Claghorn.

Is fact alone that shoes are sewn make them better than glued ones? I've seen kinda inexpensive leather/leather sole, with a inprint inside "hand sewn in Italy".

Shoe is for 125$ was for 200$ before. So is it already a sign of better quality compared with glued shoes or it means nothing?

In almost all cases sewing > gluing.

that's what my gut tells me as well, thanks:)

1. What color jackets would match with a pair of navy blue odd trousers?

 

 

2. Is there a method for removing sewn-in collar stays? I recently picked up a dress shirt thrifting that fits me perfectly, but the collar stays are sewn-in. Normally, I would live with that, but I just invested in some brass collar stays, so I'd like to remove them if possible.

I'd go light grey.  And leave the stays; get some more shirts you can use them in, I'm sure you'll need more than one!

Is this tie grenadine? It looks like garza fina or garza piccola. Any second opinions would be appreciated. Thank you
