I don't honestly know. But from the photo, it looks like the sweater is on a hanger. Be careful about buying sweater that have been kept on hangers for an extended period of time; they should not be stored that way.

Hi, everyone. I'm thinking of purchasing this Kiton tie:

What exactly does "unlined construction" mean? And is it any good?

 

Thanks in advance.

Hi, I just bought a pair of AE dress shoes. Everything is great about it but when I wear the shoe, as u can see that's the right side of my shoe, it kind of bends outward. Can anyone explain this?!

Thanks in advance.

Ties are usually lined with wool to help them keep their shape and drape.  Unlined ties can be quite elegant if made properly.  It's usually a good thing.

Try R Hanauer Bow Ties: http://www.bowties.com/index.cfm/p/products/id/64027.htm

 

Not sure if he makes exactly what you're looking for, but you may be able to charm him into doing a custom one.

 

Good luck!

So it's not your foot?  If it isn't, you might want to try a wider shoe.

Thanks for the quick reply.  I'm not storing on the hanger, just threw it on there to take the picture with the label showing.

Anyone own these cotton-linen pants from Lands End, and can comment on fit? Also, someone in the reviews commented that the white is quite transparent. Not half-lined?

Ordinarily I would just order, try on, return if no likey, but I'm going to be travelling quite a bit in the next couple of months and want to avoid any unnecessary hassles.

 

Thanks guys.

I own the navy and the sand dollar colours. The trousers are excellent and the fit is pretty much perfect imo--slim but not too slim, with a nice moderate rise. Last summer I wore the navy pair every single week, and they were life savers on hot days.

HOWEVER I would avoid the sand dollar color. I have found them to be pretty much unwearable. They are indeed transparent (the colour of your undies shows through), and besides which off-white trousers just don't seem to go with anything. Last summer I kept putting them on in the mornings, but eventually taking them off in frustration when I couldn't come up with a reasonable combination.

^^^ great response, thank you!

 

I was looking at the sand dollar, to go with a couple of summer sport coats (navy and moss green).  Anyone have any recommendations for a similar product without the mentioned deficiencies, at a reasonable price point?  I'm not opposed to 100% cotton either, but some linen in the mix would be nice.

Hello smile.gif  Quick question...

 

I saw a pair of "Crockett & Jones for Brand X" shoes that I rather like, and I wonder if it would be equivalent in quality to C&J's own?

 

Can I assume so... but just wondered in case manufacturers make a lesser product for client co-branded shoes...

 

And would C&J offer the same refurbishment service on co-brands?

 

Thanks in advance

Often, but not invariably so. It can depend greatly on just what "Brand X" is.

Crockett & Jones for Nordstrom might well be equivalent in quality to C&J's own. Crockett & Jones for K-Mart might not be.

Sometimes they do. Although more often, if called on it, they'll portray it as a "more accessible" product, and not as one of lesser quality. ("More accessible" typically being a euphemism for "cheaper." Not that there's anything inherently wrong with a manufacturer offering a less expensive product line. Sometimes, changes which matter relatively little in terms of quality, can yield substantial cost savings.)

Quite possibly. If you want to know for sure, as opposed to getting opinions from strangers on SF, you should contact C&J and ask.

What do you think about wearing snapbacks like this? I'm not 'skater' or something, I just like them! And I think they give an "informal" look to your out fit, not to thigh.

I find those snapbacks to be aesthetically unappealing. I find little of stylistic merit to them. Consequently, I would not care to wear them.

If I had to choose wardrobe for a character in a movie, who was supposed to come across as a stereotypical clueless young punk, I could certainly see making use of such headgear. (I might well give him a skateboard, too. And several days of facial stubble.)

Well, you asked what I thought. Now I've told you.

They're certainly not formal; I'll give you that.

But I'm not sure what thighs have to do with it.

anything with the word "dope" on it is certainly not... and who the fuck says "dope" anyway?
