post #26656 of 29365

I was just browsing and trying to learn about what makes a quality tie a quality tie. After doing some research I found out about the silk being "cut to the bias" or 45 degrees. Does this method of cutting the silk mean the stripes on the ties (the weave, not the pattern) will lie at 45 degrees as well? I'm just using Sam Hober as an example here because the ties on their sites don't have the weave at exactly 45° (see links). Btw, I'm just unaware and trying to learn, and just using Sam Hober as an example. Cheers.

Early in the 20th century it was not uncommon for men to wear a striped jacket or striped trousers which weren't part of a suit.  It's much less common today.

 

In particular, does anyone here have any thoughts on wearing pinstriped odd jackets or trousers?  (I’m not talking about orphaned suit jackets.)    Is it ever appropriate?   If so, how would one go about integrating them into an ensemble?

 

I’m asking because these days pinstripes are strongly associated with business attire, not sportswear, and so I’m wondering if anyone here would conclude from that, e.g., that to speak of a pinstriped *sport* coat is oxymoronic. 

 

Just wondering.

 

Cheers,

^ I am actually interested in this as well. I often see pinstriped, odd trousers not intended to go with any particular jacket... why?

Does anyone know the best way to remove this antiperspirant stain from a bag strap? I've tried wet wipes. detergent, dish soap, and regular hand soap and nothing has worked.

noticed your question about JP Crickets. we stock a plain velvet made in italy for 328.00 A very fair price. We also stock our black on black monogram for 328.00. Check these out under our collection tab on our site. Additionally we do a custom monogram for 450.00. Our quality is Italian. We sell primarily e commerce so we can offer a very fair price direct to consumer.

The silhouette is good. Not sure what "cohesive" means here. Do I think anything's out of place in formality? No. But I think the solid purple shirt is a bit obvious with the purple in the jacket, and you said the pants were pincord -- which I've heard used to describe both very fine corduroy and very fine seersucker -- and if seersucker, then they're all wrong with that jacket.

 

I also think the trousers are a rather boring shade -- I'd prefer more of a British tan shade, or either dark gray or light gray. Navy could be good, too. Or you could go full Paul Stuart and get purple cords.

 

I think the cloth of the jacket could be a fun one to put different shirts and ties against -- there's a lot you can play with there.

What is more comfortable to wear out of cotton trousers and wool trousers?
post #26664 of 29365
Depends on the trousers.

Seriously, that's an incredibly non-specific question to the point where it's entirely unanswerable. Cotton and wool are both woven into a huge range of different fabrics with a huge range of different properties. We could be talking tweed, we could be talking tropical worsted. We could be talking corduroy, we could be taking a paper thin open weave. The weather matters as well. Cold weather, hot weather? Dry, humid? What exact fabrics are your pants made out of?

There both are cotton and wool pants to suit most any conditions, and any of them might be comfortable and any of them might be uncomfortable, depending on a multitude of factors.

Reposting as this got lost in the other thread.

 

What is the opinion on this ? I am looking to buy something to wear with jeans or chinos but want some second opinions.

How are you cleaning it? It looks like it needs a thorough going over with a stiff brush.

A quick Google search returns rubbing alcohol as a possible solvent fire antiperspirant.

If you try rubbing alcohol, make sure to dilute it in water to see what happens first.

Right after posting, I was suddenly really hoping someone would provide some practical advice on using it, and it's effects. I wonder if anyone has tried it.
post #26669 of 29365

It looks like a polyester strap. I wouldn't be too concerned. If it works, I'd just rinse the area thoroughly after to make sure you get it all out. I said dilute first to make sure the color doesn't run since I'm sure certain dye's will dissolve in alcohol.

Can someone please identify the vintage of this Polo Ralph Lauren suit for sale on eBay? Not sure which set of numbers indicates which year/season.
