    I'm shopping around for suits for my three groomsmen ... Does target still offer any wool suits? I have just seen the poly blends in store and on the site and am hoping that may just be bad luck with the site's search engine.
    What are some other not-too-pricey places to look for suits for those dudes? jc penny, stafford, etc

    Is it against SF policy to post a classified in both the MC and SWD sides of the B&S?

    At that price range, nothing SF approved can be had. Try shopping during black Friday for some semi quality, or quality suits at steep discount.

    While maybe not "sf approved" it certainly is possible to find a suit that is "acceptable by sf standards" at a lower price point.

    Banana Republic? J. Crew? Anything lower than that would be a waste of money.

    Try H&M. Their cut is much better than the rest of the cheap mall shops. Some people actually look good in their jackets, I was quite surprised.

    would you pair a charcoal trouser with a full brogue in Chestnut or Dark Brown? I normally pair it black or burgandy but I'm getting bored with the safe combo. Other suggestions are welcome. Thanks...

    I normally wear a 7D US. I've tried on a pair of shoes on the C&J 348 last and found that 6UK was a little too narrow but 6.5 UK seemed to fit ok. Now if I wanted a pair on the C&J 341 last (wider than 348 from what I've read), should I go with the 6UK or 6.5UK? Thanks.

    I am looking to buy some trousers online, they have to be slim fitting and some shade of gray. Where do you guys recommend that I look? I would like to spend no more than $300. I need them for next weekend as I have an event to attend, I also have to buy a shirt and a new tie so i hope to not break the bank.

    The RLPL shirt, the gray trousers, brown cardigan, brown suede belt, purple tie and AE strands. What do you guys think about the combination?

    How do you add pictures in the sales thread instead of having to click the picture and letting it load? Also what is the rule about a big listing for one salethread? Thanks!

    edit : does it always take so long for the sales thread to load?

    I'm looking to get some new shoes and am looking into C&J Benchgrade. Are there any other brands of shoes that I should be considering at that price range? I'm looking for shoes with a level of sleekness similar to the 341 last.

    I am looking for a nice slim fitted shirt or long sleeve polo from Ralph Lauren / Tommy Hilfiger etc.
    Anyone here has some good ebay sellers who don't sell fakes? Since there are so many fakes out there I decided to ask it here to make sure it is not a copy.

    Thanks in advance!

    What is the third button hole for on the lapel? Is it a three button OR two button suit, or is it just how it is pressed?

    Please forgive my ignorance.

    100 % lana, 55 % poliester, 45 % viscosa.

    Is that good quality for a suit?
