I love gray flannel trousers. Love. It's an unhealthy obsession. However, it wears quickly in the crotch. I found this article yesterday:

Can anybody give clearer instructions on how to find worsted flannel? I would love to try a pair.

Howard Yount flannels are worsted.

Best deal in a wool overcoat, single breasted for my Dad for Christmas under $1000? Something charcoal, simple and warm to be worn to work.

Luxire?

Should leather gloves coordinate with your shoes? Ex: Wearing charcoal overcoat and black shoes. Would brown leather gloves be too out of place?

Nothing custom, since I don't have his exact measurements and want it in time for Christmas.

Basically thinking something from one of the affiliates must be better made and better quality than a Burberry London piece.

They wouldn't be totally out of place, since us SFers are the minority. Personally I wouldn't wear black with brown unless I had no choice. I think watch straps might be my exception, because I'm too lazy to swap.

I would say brown/chocolate as the latter can be worn in dressier and more casual occasions, but the same could not be said for the former. There may also be a seasonal issue with walnut.

I realize that green sport coats aren't universally approved here, but setting that aside, is the color of this one in poor taste? I like it, but that might be the Thanksgiving turkey and wine talking.

To hell with what others think.  Your liking it is the most important thing.

 

Having said that I think it looks fantastic :)

I like it. Actually I more than like it.

 

I'd wear the heck out of it with jeans and an OCBD.

Do you guys ever iron your own ties?

 

I have one that is in pretty tough shape, with a couple of thread pulls and some serious wrinkles that I found in a jacket pocket which was probably forgotten there after a night of drinking.

 

I am on the fence about sending it out as it is not particularly good (Jhane Barnes) but I like the color and texture.

 

Thinking about trying to save it myself, and if it doesn't come out ok, just manning up and pitching it.

Hey, I'm considering using a laundry service regularly once I move. I enquired and they say they machine wash them then put them in a machine to have them steam dried and pressed. I understand that using the drying machine at home is bad for clothes, does the process at a laundry service better, or similarly bad for cotton dress shirts? The thing is I don't really have too much time to iron all my shirts, so alternatively I was thinking about just doing what I usually do travelling anyway, hand washing while showering (is this weird? I've heard of at least 1 other person on these forums who does that), let it hang dry, and then perhaps getting an ironing service. I actually have enough shirts that I can save up several weeks of shirts and have it done in one go.

Alternatively I was just going to let it hang dry and wear it, I mean, it's generally not that wrinkled afterwards anyway, but I don't know if that's kind of bad. It's just what I used to do when living out of hotels, and didn't want to pay for dry cleaning.

There's a suit I really want on sale. I would wear a 36, but lowest available is 38.

Can I have it taken it to fit alright or would it just not work?

post #24870 of 27575
You can have it taken in but it won't be simple or cheap. In the end, you probably won't have saved any money.
