Thanks- I got the brown punched captoe on the simpson, Was going to ask you about toe taps- looked for info on them yesterday and found nothing. 

 

Its my second big shoe purchase (have a secondhand pair of g&g). Depending on how i like the carminas i might get another pair.

I'll also admit to owning a pair of EGs. Lovely shoes,not sure if they're worth the premium over other options these days.

 

Thanks Plestor.

I love the C&J's Sydney loafer. I have got them in brown calf (and am wearing today) and would love them in suede too. Think I missed the Herringbone sale on them....unless anyone knows different?

I think my next shoe purchase is either them, Carmina string loafers or a pair of Common Projects Achilles (though still a little unsure on the sizing).

I've only started wearing a PS regularly reasonably recently, and I notice that the breast pocket on my PJ suit is covered by the lapel to some degree, as opposed to Don Draper as shown here where the entire pocket and therefore PS is exposed:



Now, I'm sure that the Don has a much broader chest than me, but the pocket still looks pushed over towards the sleeve a lot more than my own (and maybe a little lower).

Is this something you can request from the maker? What do you all think of this look v. the PJ look where it's somewhat hidden? I didn't even go with the wide lapels option on my PJ - I imagine even more would be covered if I had?

*edit* See jason's fit pic. above for an example of the covered by lapel look

And ps- great tie Jas. I think i will have to put that on my evergrowing wish list.

Congrats on the Carmina. The Simpson last is tricky.  My wider feet prefers the Rain. Did you get it online?

Of course if knits were hand made you could do customizations.

Lachy styling would be one thing but i'd say it's mainly to do with that my lapels are wider more than anything, same with PJ.

Don's lapels are very narrow there, hence there is plenty of room to display a pocket square.

I think that it depends not only upon the lapel width, but also upon the placement of the pocket.

I've got suits/jackets from several makers - Deer Style, Herringbone and Borrelli amongst them - where the pocket square is covered up just a little bit by the edge of the lapel. However, I haven't noticed the same thing happen with the RL Polo and RL Purple Label suits or my Brooks Brothers jackets, even though their lapels are also fairly wide, and so the shape of the lapels and/or the breast pocket placement must be a little different.

Personally speaking, I don't like the narrower lapels on the suit that Don Draper is wearing in the above photo, but that's just me.

Lachyzee, you certainly could request it (some places might not want/ be able to do it tho). I would caution that it was an anomaly caused by the of factors you mentioned (lapel width being the main culprit). Higher gouge and/ or buttoning point will also cause this.

I still don't like it even on period pieces -- Vox recently put up some pictures from Breakfast at Tiffanies that also have the same thing going on if you're interested.
