Regent is a little roomier than Fitz, but much less so than Madison. It also differs in that it generally has double vents.

Given the lack of detail in your original post, this is the best answer you could have hoped for. Most of the other options would have involved large amounts of snark, "LMGTFY", and "n00b".

Fair enough. Just didn't know what the "rules" were in regards to pairing the shirts with the shoes. Yellow and brown because they're earth tones?, etc.

I know the suits can go for more. I remember 30% off last year. I wouldn't be surprised if the sport coats are similarly discounted.

I would be tempted to buy now for the peace of mind. BB regularly runs out of suits and coats in my size. Either there are a lot of 40 Longs who buy from BB, or the store just keeps a limited number in stock. That's my situation at least.

I have a question about the resale value of used suits. I've tried searching the forums but haven't had much luck. I'm interested in this suit listed in B&S: http://www.styleforum.net/showthread.php?p=4375491 It's used (worn 5 times) but in good condition without any flaws. I don't really know what it's worth and I'd like to offer a fair amount. "Retail" is above $1000, but they go around $400-450 new. Thank you for your time.

If the pick stitching is subtle I don't think it would be a problem. The thing is most people don't know about pick stitching and may get distracted or the wrong impression if it is not subtle.

Hey guys, new to the forum. I just bought a navy blue and white checkered shirt from H&M. It fits well. Problem is, when I wear it with nothing else it looks like a table cloth. The checks are about 1/2 inch by 1/2 inch. I'd like to pair it with a cardigan and a tie with a clip. Thoughts? I'm thinking a navy blue cardigan with a solid skinny tie.

Suit or pant color is usually what's considered, not the shirt. The shirt certainly can contribute to a decision, but it should not be the primary factor.

The rules are really pretty loose. Just go with what looks right with each outfit.

Pretty fashony look. Certainly in right now, but there's nothing inherently wrong with that.

Dark solid sweater and a dark solid tie are safe choices. You might want to consider a woven tie or a chunky weave on the cardigan to add some texture.

How tight should a sweater be? I have a 38" inch chest. For a heavier wool sweater (SNS Herning), should I get a small with a chest measurement of 38.6", or the medium at 40.1"? (Would the small stretch out nicely? I hate baggy clothes).

Posted this in streetwear but didn't get a response. Does anyone know if the Sebago Lighthouse boots can effectively be used as rain and snowboots?

We all know Navy Pants are versatile when it comes to shoe colors. But what about Navy Shoes? What color does it go well with?
