I'm honestly fine with either functioning or non-functioning sleeve buttons. I just don't like it when they try to look like functioning sleeve buttons.

And are you saying that non-functioning sleeve buttons with fake buttonholes is a lovely thing? This makes no sense to me.

 

I echo mimo's point about not removing the buttonholes - depending on the fabric, most buttonholes will display indentations if the buttonholes are removed.

 

Depending on the quality of your Canali jacket, you can ask your tailor to open the buttonholes.

Taking it to a cobbler is LESS trouble than taking 2 minutes to put it on B&S? Stretching it enough to make it fit will ruin it.

Do spectator style shoes fit into that custom of not wearing white after labor day?

I don't know.  But I guess it depends where you are: personally I like my specs and they fly all year round...anyway, some are obviously more summery than others: my calf./canvas oxfords are clearly for warm weather, but a double-soled cordovan and scotchgrain budapester (nice idea, eh?), would be a great winter shoe.

Mine are something like this. Except with white suede and a cap toe. I live in NYC.

i love this jacket, but it's impossible to find now and honestly, i dont think i'd want to pay any more than $150:

http://www.filson.com/products/oil-finish-trucker-jacket.10502.html

 

anyone know of something similar? i don't necessarily need it to be made by a brand with a strong heritage like filson

There are J Crew, Polo, Outback available in this eBay search.

Kensington, I don't know what the rules are, but I have to say white suede is quite delicate for anything other than a sunny day, and probably not suitable for evening.  But I personally can't see any reason not to pull these out on a bright, dry day in winter if it's mild enough for a blazer and chinos; even with a light cashmere thrown into the mix!

Just saw on Put this on (Trusted source)  http://putthison.com/post/60275065220/reviewing-two-new-shoe-companies-im-genuinely a brand that seams like a great option. Beckett Simonon is retailing Good Year Welted shoes starting at $115. Plus they are made out of Vegetable tanned full grain leather. Sounds like a great deal to me. I just pulled the trigger on their double Monk Straps.

Hello, can someone help me out? I just made an account and I am new to this website. I am currently a Junior in High School and would like to know what you guys would recommend as a "good outfit"? Just a few quick suggestions maybe? No one really dresses up at all in my school. The standard outfit in my grade is basically cargo shorts/basketball shorts, graphic t shirt, nike high socks with sport sandals. etc. I don't dress like this, and I am not afraid to dress different than everyone, so could someone give me some tips? How would you dress if you were my age? Footwear, shirts, pants, etc. I appreciate any answers...

You can dress well while dressing casually. Dark slim jeans, a striped polo, and casual leather shoes, like a pair of desert boots, for example.

Double post.

Thank you, that's similar to what I was going for. That is what I usually wear without the Desert Boots, but I planned on picking up a pair very soon.

I'm going to NY in Christmas for a few weeks and I know it's going to be freezing.

Thinking of keeping warm by layering so I will wear an undershirt, white/blue OCBD, sweater and peacoat. Maybe a navy blazer between the sweater and peacoat but I think that might be too many layers. 

 

My one dilemma is deciding which sweater to pack, I can only pack 2. I'm thinking of buying a grey cashmere sweater from Uniqlo when I get there so altogether I would have 3 sweaters.

 

Which one of these should I bring with me?

  1. Navy Cardigan - 50% Viscose, 45% Polyamide, 5% Angora
  2. Burgundy Cardigan - 80% Cotton, 15% Wool, 5% Angora
  3. Argyle Crewneck (thickest) - 95% Acrylic, 5% Wool
  4. Red V-Neck - 92% Cotton, 8% Cashmere

2 and 3. And buy a decent heavy wool one sometime.
