Very similar, if not identical, IIRC.

Can someone explain to me what "3/4 placket" means? I've also seen the numbers "3/2" thrown around in the context of suits. I'm new to this and can't think of the right terms to search for on google. Many thanks.

3/2 is the buttons. Many classic jackets have 3 buttons but the 3rd is rolled under the lapel so you only see the bottom 2 buttons. You can see the top button hole on the lapel like here

Does anyone know if I can wash a 100% cotton blazer in a washing machine without destroying it? A little shrinkage would be fine, I'm just worried about destroying it as the tag says dry clean only.

The jacket is a brooks brothers 100% cotton twill blazer, the material is fairly thick / heavy. The interior is lined with what looks like chambray, sleeves are lined with polyester. Thanks.

I purchased two pair of Van Ness from them recently. They are fine as far as AE quality goes, not seconds. One thing about Men's Wearhouse, the shoes from AE are not leather soled. I thought I would give them a try and am happy with the decision.

I'd be REAL worried that the fabric would be fine, but the seams would be wrecked. The cotton, the lining and the interlining can all respond in different ways to the washing, and you could end up with weird puckering, pockets that won't close, collar not laying down etc. I'm really a novice on clothing care, but what I *have* learned tells me that this is a bad idea.

Hi guys, new to the forum

need your people's help.

Anyone heard of the brand Marzoni? They carry a large selections of fabrics (wool, linen, velvet, cashmere)
I suppose it's somewhat related to the Marzotto? or is it just some unauthorized brand?

I've heard good things about some lines of Boss and have Canali. Based on my experience with CK - I'd never buy thier clothes. Perhaps consider if the companies make fused jackets. If they are fused- I'd save the hassle and expect pants to be of similar quality. Not saying the technicality is the same but does make me believe they care less.

Canali is awesome- their prices are high for sure but amazing fabric.

Where can I get wooden heels? Bnelson refuses to sell their stock and I refuse to mail shoes from DC to NYC for their heels.
