Danier also sells leather care products, but all Danier branded, I think.

What are some good sites that carry Nudie Jeans in a wide selection? I want another Thinn Finn (I think that's what they're called?). I have a pair in dark indigo and really like the fit.I want another pair in a different shade of blue.

Hi, I'm having a job interview next week and was thinking on wearing navy trousers, black oxfords, white shirt and black skinny necktie, perhaps a black wool blazer cos it's cold. Any comments would that be an appropriate combo for the ocation

You need to provide a generic description on the position, company, etc. If interviewing for a business role, anything shy of a suit is unacceptable.

Would you consider this to be too large of a fit?

post #24891 of 28652

^^^ I don't think so.  Obviously very casual, and I think it's meant to have that rumpled look on the sleeves, based on the fact that the bodice is the correct length.  It could be argued that the shoulders should be a little narrower, the bodice a little shorter, and the sleeves much much shorter, but, again, I think this particular jacket is meant to look a bit haphazard, so really precise and perfect tailoring would actually look out of place.  So it comes down to whether you like this look.  I think the deep-plunging v-neck T takes it over the line into douchebaggery, personally.

Yes, I would definitely consider that too large. Especially the right sleeve simply looks weird to me. But then again, this is not an outfit/style I would wear, so maybe I am mistaken. Might be a better question for the streetwear and denim section?

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.

I just did this to 2 silk ties with good results. I used a towel between the iron and towel. Be careful if you have a tail holder thingy as it'll show through after ironing.

edit: sorry wrong forum

For a business interview, it depends.  The standard advice is to wear a suit.  Also, I wouldn't wear a black tie because it is a bit too formal and stiff.  I'd wear a blue tie to indicate trustworthiness so to speak; red is too dominating, unless it's a sales position or one where you need to be more assertive, in which case I'd use a reddish tie. 

 

...anyway, I've spent a good amount of time thinking about the color of ties and what to wear where, so I might just be overthinking it!

What are these sock coverings?

Spats.

 

 I was looking for some advice in buying a basic suit- I have separate jackets but no coats except for a hideous thing I'd rather die than wear in public. So I'm looking for something... well, conservative obviously,  no more than $750 hopefully, and leaning towards an English style if a little American, but certainly not Italian- moderately slim but not excessively so, I'm 185 on a good day with a 36 waist, 6'1'' and not yet 21. So something that doesn't betray the little stomach yet doesn't make me look like I'm wearing my grandfather's suit. (I'm open towards hearing the merits of the sack suit, however). Navy, I'd imagine.

 

I was thinking the BB Madison or Fitzgerald... not sure what else.

Is buying a used (pre-owned!) suit on ebay a completely silly thing to do?  While browsing I found someone selling 3 Hickey Freeman suits in my size, and am considering biting.  So A. Is this a bad idea, B.  what should I look out for, and C. what is a ballpark fair price.  I'm assuming anything over $200 is bad, as they can commonly be had at NM Last Call for sub-$500.

 

Anyway, any help would be appreciated.
