I'd like to try that Martin Sheen jacket flip but I'm worried I will tear my new Canali.

 

Maybe I can rummage around and find an old Tarocash jacket to practise on.

Hi

 

Can anyone give me advice on what size Allen Edmonds belt to get?

 

http://shop.nordstrom.com/s/allen-edmonds-manistee-brogue-leather-belt/3178667?origin=fashionresultspreview

 

I'm probably a size 37 even though I wear size 38 trousers, some that fit fine and loosely - mostly the latter. My current belt says 38/95 and I wear it in the 3rd/4th hole.

 

Also in regards to the trousers, I think a size 36 is too tight for me and I'm not sure how to get the perfect fit.

Evening Gentlemen (and possibly Ladies that are reading over shoulders),

First off, a few years back when I last posted I think I asked about barbers and tailors in Melbourne and I got told about Rock It who are great barbers so I just want to thank those that offered advice and help on those matters.

Secondly, I have a Medical Ball coming up in September - Gatsby themed - just like every soiree that's popping up. I was hoping I could just get some simple advice on whether a Classic, clean cut Tux is what is in order or could I just pick a look from the movie/early '20's and roll with that?

Thanks for any help offered
woop

P.S. keep up the excellent banter

I've got a Gatsby function this Friday and I'm going like this:

 

 

 

However, I reckon a classic tux will be just fine.

That would be awesome to go like that and you'll certainly look the part, I don't have the stature to pull something like that off.

I was thinking something along these lines initially,


Especially since I don't own a Tux... Yet

That will be your Hollywood looks again Mr Nelson. You going to shave down to the pencil moustache?

Try the Ae thread itself.

If I remember correctly, conventional wisdom concerning belt sizing is to size up, rather than size down. So, in other words, if you have a 37 inch waist but you can't find a size 37 belt, then get a size 38 rather than a size 36 (as if you get a 36, the belt might look too short).

Don't forget that, depending on the design of the belt, it is possible to cut down a belt to size and to then reattach the buckle (this is much easier on some belts than others).

With regard to trousers, if you are in between sizes, you can either get a smaller pair that has some room to let out and have them taken out a bit (if there is fabric to do so), or you can get the larger size and have them taken in a bit. It really depends upon both your individual body shape, and upon the make of trousers, as to which option is best.

Thanks for that I'll have to go check it out biggrin.gif

Sounds like a good deal for $690, just not much info on these suits.

Fourth week in a row that Labor ministers have worn pink ties on Q&A.

Sartorially they wouldn't look that bad if they didn't have a winsor knot going.

And wtf - Tim Fischer is still alive!? I was just watching a video of Keating putting him through the mincer and he was a billion years old then...

They're trying to win back the base by reminding them subtly that they are the pinkos.

This is the closest thing I can find to that Barbour jacket I'm after :(

 

If I was to buy the barbour, could I get it made smaller?
