They are narrower because they are women's belts gezza. Hahaha

Haven't had much luck with the conventional sizing as I tend to fit into large sized shirts/trousers and find that the sleeve length and trouser length is too long.

Also interested in herringbone shirts.

Thanks in advance


Try tm lewin. Go with fully fitted line. Multiple skywave lengths available.

They looked like it but any idea why they were among the ties and pocket handkerchiefs rather than in the women's section at the back?

Because they dump the large boxes up front i think. If you look at the sizing you see they're marked in women's sizes biggrin.gif

By the way, have you already put the order in with PJ?

Something similar to this (2 compartments), but for <$150 http://www.brooksbrothers.com/Leather-Travel-Toiletry-Case/926C________NBRN__________,default,pd.html

A dopp kit shouldn't cost as much as a pair of shoes...

Any ideas? If they do monogramming, it'd be a plus.

There is this but that BB is very nice and its also another $50+ for shipping http://www.mensbiz.com.au/geo-f-trumper-flat-cigar-brown-leather-wetpack.html

They do have others

Ha! Ok, I ended up getting a few pocket squares in the end.

They are 'dark horn', and they do look basically black.

*shrugs* The material is actually quite dark also, so yeah we thought they were best...

Good post, burnso. Could be smoke MOP buttons? try for a fit pic, even on itelefono

Edit: dark horn is cool. Cool colour fabric.
post #34482 of 55944
One thing I've learned trying different button types and configurations is that you can also go no cuff buttons if you're game. ?next level? Who the f... knows. I think it's cool.

Thanks, was very easy to talk them up. Yeah I will actually attempt a couple more fit pics, and see how we go. 

 

Fabric is so impressive. I'm sure another poster on this thread had the same fabric for their peaked lapel suitshop SC a while back. The grey version looks very nice also.

post #34485 of 55944
Top post Burnso... Sounds like a pretty good process...

A fit pic would be the icing on the cake, proof in the pudding etc...

Enjoy mate!

Go the Blues! What's the verdict on Lockys suit?
