Im looking to purchase a blazer or sport coat, and I am leaning towards the Gant Rugger R. Canvas blazer in navy: http://media3.gant.com/media/catalog/product/cache/4/image/540x540/0dc2d03fe217f8c83829496872af24a0/7/6/76862_402_1.jpg

 

Does anyone have any experience with this blazer, or could anybody recommend something better? Im a student so I dont have the savings to go bespoke, but I need a blazer/sport coat for recruiting events, etc.

Don't get that one. Get a traditional wool blazer, available anywhere. What you have is an unstructured canvas blazer, and those are meant for more casual settings. If you're using this for stuff like recruiting events, you want something more formal than that. A more classic wool version would even work for an interview.

Brooks Brothers would be a good option, and about the same price as the Gant if you get it on sale.

Quick Question.  Below is a photo of my favorite belt.  I have been unable to find another with a similar closing mechanic anywhere.   This is not a belt with a track system.  It is simply a belt without holes that closes with a pinch on the leather.  

 

1.  Does anyone know where I can find a belt like this?  Please not this is not a mission belt or other track belt.  

2.  If you do not know a place that may stock this type of belt, do you know what this type of belt/closure mechanic is called? 

 

Thank you very much (I have been trying to answer this question for over eight years)

NEW YORK SLIM FIT

 

Any ideas on matching this shirt?  White/brown pinpoint oxford.  I'm having a little trouble putting a good outfit together.  Mostly odd jacket/trousers about half the time with tie.  Thanks guys.

post #23662 of 28327
^Tie could be just about any solid color, textured. Just about any jacket, but when in doubt, navy blazer.

I'll be catching an early morning flight out of Baltimore (brr, cold[1].gif chilly) in several days to attend a wedding in Hattiesburg, Mississippi (low 61ºF, high 86ºF). To cover the weather transition, I'd like to wear a pair of lightweight cords over brown beefroll full strap Polo Sport loafers on the flight and then the 2+ hour drive from NOLA to the hotel, similar to these and in this color (but not rolled up as in the pic).



I'm looking for suggestions for a sport coat and shirt to wear over it. I've got a heavy-ish sueded cotton navy sport coat as well as a variety of brass buttoned navy blazers in Loro Piana finer finish wools which seem at odds with the texture of the cords. My tweeds are mostly brown or gray and are too close IMO to the color of the cords and probably too heavy. My linens are mostly in earth tones as are the rest of my cotton sport coats.

Please note that having lost a LOT of weight a few years back has left my inner body thermometer out of whack and I'm cold when others are complaining about the heat.

Black gingham check shirt sound okay or too severe?

I dunno.

I'm looking to buy a pair of Double Monks, preferably in shell cordovan and a burgundy/red hue. Any suggestions APART from the Salinger offered by Epaulet?

Are any of those linen jackets on the green end of the earth tone spectrum? A bottle green or a very dark brown would look really nice... Even the linen/corduroy texture oddity might sort of work, I think. Perhaps a sweater to bridge the two textures and add a little variety to the earth tones.

 

Black gingham sounds odd; I'd opt for a more classic oxford to avoid the black gingham/textured earth tone mix.... If all fails, just use the cotton navy sport coat with any simple shirt.

post #23666 of 28327
^agree that avoiding black gingham is best. Gingham is typically a summer pattern, and would be a little at odds with your corduroy pants.

It may be cliche, but I pretty much always fly in a navy blazer. Mid-weight wool. And when you're wearing an open collar shirt under a blazer, pretty much anything goes. The gingham would be fine. It is associated with spring, but IMO gingham shirts work any time that's not winter. Hell, I wore green gingham a few days ago. A more traditional oxford would also be fine.

Hi,

I just bought glazed calf leather LV shoes as shown. Does anybody know how to condition this type of leather? Should I apply cream, polish?

As per LV website it is not recommended to apply cream on glazed leather. So, I really don't know how to condition my shoes.

Help would be very much appreciated.

Thanks a lot!

i really like the way long wallets look, but is there any actual utility to them in this day and age? they look like a huge pain in the ass (literally) to wear with jeans, and i'm pretty sure i could never use them with dress pants, which means i'd have to switch wallets depending on the pants i'm wearing.

They're infinitely more accommodating for jackets though. If you wear a suit 5+ days a week they're invaluable. Some people have both styles and switch between the two on weekends.
