I was wondering if there's any 'official' way to tell if a particular Zegna pant is made by Incotex. I see the usual signs (belt prong loop, blue band in back, made in Portugal/Romania) on my pants, but still want to confirm that it is the case.

Thank you for your post, do you have any knowledge specifically on Topman leathers though?

Just buy the jacket. You'll either prove everyone wrong, or learn a valuable lesson.

Do all AE business shoe models have the same size? I tried on a pair of Park Avenues in person but I am thinking about buying a pair of Cliftons online.

 

Thank you in advance!

Different models have different lasts. Their balmorals however, (and correct me if I 'm wrong gents) are mostly in the 5 last. My strands are in the this same last and they go tts with park aves.

Just the .02 cents of a biker.

 

Indeed.  As a fellow biker, I can personally vouch for the need for a jacket to fit closely.

 

There is the practical issue with a bike jacket of not wanting clothing that catches air and drags and flaps in the wind: noisy, uncomfortable, and even slows you down.  And of course, a bike jacket is protective clothing: not much good if it rides up under your armpits leaving your body exposed if you have a low-side.  That's why real bike jackets are normally tighter, and rather stiff and/or reinforced.  "Fashion" bike jackets, not.

If you mean about leather quality, there is no such thing as "Topman leather", as they don't make anything themselves.  Just assume it's very cheap.  If you mean about fit, then as we're talking about a cheap fashion garment rather than an actual bike jacket, the sizing is hard to guess.  But my guess is that a jacket, even made of leather, aimed at young men with limited budgets, is going to fit most slender teenaged types pretty true to size, and already be close-fitting by design.  Also, even if the leather stretches, the polyester lining won't.  I suspect too small is too small.  But maybe if you enquire they can give you a definition of what "small" and "extra small" mean in their sizings, with chest, waist and shoulder measurements.  You can be certain they have a standard, and it might be different to another brand you're used to.

I hereby publicly vow to never order clothes online again unless I already own the same model and know it will fit.  I will try on all clothes before buying them, even if I have to pay a little more.  That is all.  Carry on my good people.

haha why is that. the only thing stopping me from going all out on online shopping is the worry that ill suffer some sort of consequence for making as many returns as i do.

Going to HK in 10 more days... Average temperature is 27 degree celsius. Going to walk and take photos a lot. What to wear for style and comfort?

If you were planning to walk around in your hometown taking pictures, and it was forecast to be an average of 27 Celsius, what would you wear?

Wear that.

If you're going to do the tourist thing, bring a jacket in case the weather drops when visiting the big Buddha. Also bring a small light umbrella in case if rains erratically.

 

The most important thing is to bring sneakers that you are comfortable wearing (broken-in sneakers are best) because you don't want to develop blisters. I don't know how your weight fluctuates or how fast is your metabolism, but bring "fat" pants if your group is eating all day because I'm guessing you will since HK has amazing food - from street food to 5-star restaurants (HK offers great food at pretty much any price point / budget). 

 

Another tip that doesn't pertain to your question, but just in case you find it useful. Chung King Mansion offers the cheapest currency conversions. Just go towards the middle/back for the cheapest rates.

I just got my first pair of chukka boots, the Loake Pimlicio, and am not sure if they fit properly: If I tie them tightly, the feet don't move and I've got about a thumb's width of toe room. The width is fine too: I can feel my foot sitting on the leather on both sides. However, on top of the shoe, there is a few millimeters of air between my foot and the leather. When walking the shoe creases at that point. I can also easily flex my toes when wearing them. Is this normal or are they too big?

When one calls for black business or cocktail attire, would a navy suit/white shirt/burgundy tie/black cap top oxford be appropriate?

post #23819 of 29143
Navy suit is fine at night, but I would do a black tie instead of burgundy.
post #23820 of 29143
Btw, what is "black business"?
