    Australians, what websites are you buying your clothes from? A lot of stuff posted on this forum is great, but I get shafted by the postage costs.

    J Crew and Club Monaco have cheapish popovers, and there are some nice-looking cuban collar shirts on sale by COMMON Sweden

    Hello there,

    I'm just wondering if the following crotch stitching on Levi's 501 is normal? It looks a bit sloppy to me... Any thoughts would be highly appreciated.

    I've been trying to figure out for a while now what jacket this is. The person in these pictures said he lost it and has no idea himself. Could anyone help out?

    It's an ma-1 jacket. Whats your budget?

    I like Rick Owens the best for this but it's pricey. Cheaper/other brands that make it are Robert Geller, Our Legacy, John Elliott, APC, Acne, Enfin Leve, and I think falcon garments makes one too

    Any recommendations for all-purpose staple t-shirts? Thicker material with a nice drape, and not too short?

    a little late to the party here but I was wondering if someone could help me track down a lbm 1911 casentino overcoat in taupe, or blue. Size 52 or maybe something similar in the same price range ~600$

    Any good options for cotton/wool trousers for office wear around $100 each? I know there are good deals to be had on Incotex or other brands if you look hard enough, but I just want to find something affordable at retail and easy to find in my size and different fabrics. Is J Crew really my best option here?

    Reigning Champ might work. Like $50 a pop though

    Did you mean cotton or wool trousers or cotton/wool?

    If the former you could probably do Brooks Brothers in that price range, Club Monaco on sale.

    This question might be better in the Classic Menswear version of this thread.

    I've been wearing APC new rescue as the fit has worked for me, but unfortunately the line has been discontinued. Can anyone suggest an alternative that is not unsanforized? Easy availability from a return-friendly store is a plus. Thanks.
