I dunno. They were overrated a year ago, but now seems to have settled in it's proper place as an easy to use staple rather than some grail piece. That being said, there is a bit of hype lingering about regarding patterned and printed grenadines.

I don't know why people were saying bespoke is overrated at the start of the thread. If it's within a wearer's budget, seems like viewing a good bespoke piece as a grail item is appropriate.

Overrated:
- thumbs
- Claghorn's (me!) and Stitchy's fits
- British kitchens

But, but... Surely British kitchens are what Classic Menswear is supposed to be all about! Or mostly, at least. And all the other SF forums, for that matter. Boxing promotion has come to be a big part of it as well, these last few days.

 

Underrated:

- Efficient moderating of new threads

Pantherella socks - are more expensive, last less long, and look no better than anything from Gold Toe.

Derek Rose nightwear. See no difference between anything they put out vs something from JC Penney, yet they charge 20 times the amount.

Zimmerli underwear. Same deal. Many multiples the price for little or no improvement in quality over what you can get in a cheap department store.

Almost anything to come out of Brooks Brothers in the past 25 years.

 

Some of the older stuff fine though. Thrift thread represent!

Blue shirts, brown ties, pants that are too short, things that are more expensive than what is really needed.

This thread

 

blue shirts are overrated? :foo:

Let me guess. Brown ties and gray pants as well? He harps on them every chance he gets.

Title should be changed to "what I overrate"

:lol:  Oh, i forgot the grey flannels.   put them together and you have a school uniform ..     -  I jest.    But it's true, these things are overrated, to the point where they exclude other viable options.

 

right thread though.

By whom? I own and like gray flannels, but I am not wearing them today.
