If you want to actually see the buttons, M&J Trimmings on 37th and 6th has an ok selection. There's also Tender Buttons on 62nd and Lex which looks to have a larger selection of buttons (not sure on their horn selection) but I haven't made a trip up there yet.

What's a proper winter hat for a young(ish) man to wear with a business suit. I live in a temperate climate, so I don't need anything for sub-zero. I just don't want to get a head cold and wearing a beanie with my suits makes me look like a dolt.

Hey guys. I have a green shirt (http://www.emmettlondon.com/item-det...offers=0&all=0) and was wondering if anyone could advise what colours would match up with it? Thanks!

Gray and charcoal. To a somewhat lesser extent, navy and khaki.

I'm looking for a vest, it does not have to have a print on it but solid color, stripes or checkered is fine. I would like it to be a tux style where it is thin on the shoulders and not the whole width of the shoulder. Also I want it to not have very many buttons maybe 3 or 4. Any brand names or online vendors you know of? thanks!

Not a fan of green shirts, but khaki would be your best bet.

Question: Are there formal suspenders / braces made for a tuxedo? Or do you just wear standard black?

They're often white or a white/black pattern.

I'd say you've got two choices here - Fedora or Driving Cap/Newsboy

Fedora will obviously be more formal, and is perhaps not your preference, but it's my go-to for a stylish winter hat. If you want to keep it looking modern, you probably want to keep the brim on the smaller side.

Driving Cap/Newsboy will be more casual, but okay with a suit (though it looks better with a sport coat, IMO) Again, I'd recommend a smaller brim, but this may depend upon your face shape.

As a side note, to the best of my knowledge, your head getting cold will not cause you to get a cold. People get colds in late fall because that is the time of year the germs proliferate most rapidly, not because of the cold - as a matter of fact, it is easier for germs to live in warmer places (like under the brim of that stylish chapeau.)

Has anybody here used or heard of Henry Herbert tailors in London? They say that they offer a visiting bespoke tailoring service. I'm thinking a getting a suit made but don't want to end up with a dud! Thanks ps and thanks re the green shirt.

Does anybody know where I can get (download) those old vintage drawing of gentlemen in their fine clothing? I just think those things are great. I don't even know what they're called, though. Any ideas?

what is the equvilent Euro size to a UK 52?
I am looking @ this Isais suit on Yoox, which it says is tagged as 52 uk, and marketed as US 46.
Its strange, almost all of the Isaia products I've seen are Euro size tagged, never seen their jacket tagged UK sized. I googled UK size, and serveral sites say UK size is the same as US size, so this suit is a US size 52?? That would be HUGE......
