    Tried on some Lombard's and feel comfy, but when I walk it feels like my heel could come out of the shoe although I don't think it ever will. Is this considered heel slippage? There was no gap in the back, so I don't think its too large. Will this go away after they've been broken in?

    Also, best to get a little snug because itll stretch out over time? How would I know if it is too tight at the sides?

    Ah yeah AE Lombards are very nice and an essential IMO. Have an SA help you find your shoe size and shoe width.

    I can't believe I'm asking this question here, but I was at my tailor's, referring my friend for a suit and was there for the commission, and I got too excited and got myself another bespoke commissioned as well - it's a grey cloth with purple stripes. I like the fabric, it feels decent and I like the colors, but I'm about to pick it up and I have no idea what palette of colors I can make work with this thing... :confused: Anybody with decent taste got any suggestions? I don't like anything loud.

    Tried making a post about this, but it was held back because I just joined. Then I noticed this thread. Really need help finding a cap like this. It is not an ordinary flatcap/newboy/driver's cap. Note the very short brim, lack of button on top and a few other unusual details. I have been searching on and off for over a year trying to find one of these. Never even seen another one. Please help!

    So is it acceptable (or semi-acceptable) to wear linen coats year-round, provided it's hot and sunny? I live in f*cking Texas, man. It's 108 out there. Our summers are just too hot for summer jackets.

    Is there anything wrong with snap-up shirts for men compared to button-up shirts? I'm under the impression that snap-ups are more for younger people or little kids almost and pass up some good looking snap ups just because it's snap up and not buttons.

    You bought a suit with purple stripes and you don't like anything loud. O....kay....

    Since the suit itself is a kind of flamboyant statement piece, what you want to do is keep it simple and wear it with things that won't turn up the volume. So white or pale blue shirts with no pattern, black or dark brown shoes and belt, etc. Don't overthink this, man.
