Thanks for the response!  Man, is half off retail still really too much for a fully-canvassed HF?  I see references to all these great deals, but haven't had much luck locating them. (I see lots of discount HF at Last Call & the Rack, but those are always the half-canvassed lines).  I did see a lot of attractive Belvest suits on eBay; unfortunately, I fear they'll be too heavy for the Texas heat.

I think Burberry has gone fused. The suits last year had a half canvass, but I couldn't find any canvassing for their suits this year.

Paul Smith is another good option, and it's definitely half canvassed.

How do these Kenilworths look? My best offer was accepted, I just want to know if I got hosed. They look to be in really good condition. My offer was between $100-150.

They look like they're in decent shape (barely worn).

Those are in good shape. If you like the shoes and are happy with the price you paid, seems like a good buy.
post #23034 of 27526

I'm quite happy with the price I paid (135, no reason to be vague, I'm paying for them), and I really nice a nice pair of brown bluchers. I just hope they fit. I wear a 12E in the 8 last, and an AE customer service rep said I might be okay with that same size on the 5 as they both lean long/narrow. Not terribly worried though, I can resell them if they don't fit. God I hope they do though, because I really like them. 

 

 

Edit: Forgot to quote the two posts above.  Thanks guys.

Probably answered before but couldn't find the right answer:
I'm getting new tuxedo pants tailored and have worn them with sidetabs in the past. I'd like to wear suspenders now but am unsure whether side tabs are still warranted or whether its stylistically appropriate to wear tux pants both with sidetabs AND suspenders.

Many thanks
post #23036 of 27526
No problem to wear side adjusters and braces.

Hi!

I have ordered a test shirt from an italian MTM shirt maker, and I have some rumples on my chest.

Is it too slim on the chest area? Or is it my posture that makes the rumples? Maybe too small armhole? Any suggestions on alterations for my next shirt?

Anything would be appreciated.

Sincerely Max



post #23039 of 27526

Looking for some advice... I am going to a wedding at the end of this month and trying to pull off this look.

 

 

I currently have this suit below and Allen Edmonds McAllistors in Walnut

 

 

 

The questions I have:

What tie would go with a light yellow shirt?

Should I stick with a black and white checkered pocket square?

Is it ok to go to a wedding without socks... if not what color socks should I pair up?

 

Thanks cheers.gif
