Do u absolutely need a suit? Could be better to get a nice sport coat at Bloomingdales (lubiam,larding, lbm 1911) and less expensive trousers-- but in any case do bloomies, always good sales and this week is no exception. Sales associates will often scan discount cards at register if u don't have them, for additional markdowns

Aussie here. All the clothes in my city of Perth are poorly made and overpriced. Am visiting New York and would like to build a better wardrobe (On a budget). Which stores should I visit for:

-Business Shirts ($80 max)
-Business Pants ($120 max)
-A suit ($500)
-A Pair of Allen Edmonds
-Casual Clothes.

I realise online stores are the usual option for Australians but since I'll be there it will be nice to get these items in the right size in the first instance.

Cheers!

quick questions:

how do you polish patent leather dress shoes?

and

what do you use to store ties?
post #24948 of 28243

Clean with a damp cloth, buff with a dry one.  No actual polish is required.  If they are a little dull, one suggested cheat would be to give just a tiny spray or furniture polish onto the cloth.

Greetings gents. These will be returning from alterations tomorrow and I need to figure out where to go in terms of both a shirt and tie and an open collar shirt alone.

I'm kind of drawing a blank - suggestions?

is there any point in trying to get fairly small, darker stains out of a dark tie?

if so, what's the best course of action? i'm referring to NICE ties (i have a stain on a charvet that i'd love to get out)

How/Where can I start my search for a tailor? Right now, all I have to go off of is Yelp.

Go to a local high-end menswear shop and ask for recommendations.

LOL! Well, I do enjoy Yelp for its restaurant recommendations. Figure I would try my hand at tailoring as well.

Apologize for the sub-standard pics in advance. Are these gloves too big? They feel okay in the fingers but the palm seems to have extra material when I make a fist. Would love opinions ASAP so I can either give them back to the seller or keep them and go home.

 

Edit: Returned.

What city? Tons of tailoring posts all over this forum. Maybe yours has been covered at some point in time, or a city within an hour of you.
