    I just came across this: Also, Hyperion seems like an interesting brand, anyone have any experience with it?

    Quelque'un? There is absolutely no information to be found about this brand. Is it at all obtainable i Europe?

    Hello SFers

    Can anyone recommend me a nice navy cotton/chino suit? I have a wedding to go to in a about a month and a half and I was looking to wear something other than wool. (I've been scouting BS, but nothing for a 40R)

    The only one I can find that is easily accessible is this JCrew suit one, but if anyone else has some other input it would be greatly appreciated. I looking for a slim/trim look but on the timeless side, so not something with razor thin lapels that is more of a fashion type look.

    I also looked at indochino, but I cant find Navy cotton option.

    Price range would be around the Jcrew one I guess (400ish)


    Thanks in advance guys!

    I just got a new suit, and the pants are a few inches too large in the waist. There's also some bunching in the crotch. If I get the waist taken in, should it take care of the crotch issue?

    When you bring them to your tailor, I might ask them if they can do anything about the bunching up issue on its own, independent of taking in the waist.

    Belt loops are wearing out on my suit pants - I am going to have to get them fixed. That said is there anything I can do to avoid wear going forward? Note I sit on my ass all day for work.

    Does anyone own this Gitman Japanese organic shirt? I would really love to get my hands on the blue version, shown below, in a size small. Not feeling the other colour combos as much.
    If someone knows where I can find a shop carrying one (besides woodwood) please PM me. I really would appreciate it, thanks. I would also be open to buying one used if someone would be willing to part with theirs.

    So to sum up the advice. Shades of blue, white or ecru and patterns thereof are ok. Everything else is no good for now? Thanks.
    Other colors are fine too, just keep them light. But stuff like pinks, yellow and green can be a little more touchy with skintone than blue, white or tans, and are more uncommon in general, so they don't often make a list of basics.
    My question is related with footwear. As we all know that Reebok has introduced new ReeZig shoes a couple of months ago in the Asian Market. Which colour combination will suite teenage boys more?
    May I recommend shoes with a design not based off of quackery and styled for clowns? You're asking on Styleforum. Feel free to give reebok money if you want, but there's no way to make those shoes look good. Hypermodern trainers seem like they're designed to look as ridiculous as possible, because them look over-designed, thus signaling to consumers how awesome and scientific they are, when they really just consist of a sheet of cardboard for the insole, a sheet of thin foam for the footbed, and rubber and foam bits glued in an interesting shape, maybe along with some hard plastic as an outsole. Made in china for 2 bucks and sold for $89.95.

    Try calling the stores in Toronto to see if they have any smalls in stock. The stock on the website is different than in store.

    Dress less sloppy. Wear more tailored/fitted clothes. Make sure everything fits well.

    BB has this navy cotton, Fitzgerald cut in your size. Narrow lapels, and above your price point at the moment, but assuming 30% off during the semi-annual sale, you could get it for around $420.

    Dainite shoes are very giving. They are not as hard as rubber soles. I don't notice a difference between the two.

    Quick question for anyone who has a Belstaff leather jacket:

    Do ALL of them have the metal badge on the lining? Is anyone sure of this? I'm looking at one now and despite having a receipt from a Belstaff stockist, it doesn't have a lining badge.

    Thanks!

    Tuck in your shirt. Stand up straight.
