    Hi all,

    New here. My name is Kyle. I have been trying to track down this jacket, or a jacket similar. I trekked throughout Italy in hope to find it, but to no avail. Can anyone locate me to a model similar to this? Also I have interest in the scarf as well.

    And one more thing, anyone know where I can find a pair of shoes similar to these? My budge is tight so I'm looking for something under $150.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi Kyle,

    The sport coat looks like a Cucinelli or Canali Kei. If you're budget conscience, I've seen Corneliani diffusion sport coats in a similar style; take a look on eBay.

    For the boots I'd check out AE. They're having a clearance which includes boots similar to the one in your pic.

    Welcome to SF.

    Looking for a great Tailor in Los Angeles.

    I have Suits and Sport Coats from Kiton, Brioni, Oxxford Clothes, etc., both new/unaltered and items that need adjustments.

    I have tried two Tailors here, Custom Tailors for alterations previously, and they were not very good

    I would guess that that's not a sports coat but a light-weight top coat.

    Rack Suit Makers - Which Offers Classic Look Short of Custom? Nothing Glued; Nothing Too Trendy

    Just as the perfect sailboat doesn't exist, I suppose the perfect rack suit doesn't, either. Rack suit makers come and go; trendy design dictates glued fabrics; materials are so thin, moths are hungry; one steam buck does the work of many, eliminating the traditional rolled lapel. If you drool at David Letterman's suits, then you'll appreciate this thread. The object is to identify a rack suit maker who gets close to a David Letterman look without paying for custom tailoring. By the way, does anyone know who makes his suits? I've guessed Sulka or Brioni ...

    I'll begin by nominating our American suit maker, Hickey Freeman. Their line is classic. It gives the wearer a "look" you can spot from across the street. While lapels are moderately rolled on their website, I find their suits hanging on racks to be flat-pressed. In recent years fabric selections have dwindled, extra material for alterations is gone, and almost every suit is what we used to call, "summer weight." Please share your thoughts to open my eyes to other makers offering a Savile Row look from an upscale rack suit. Let's see what you suggest. Thanks!

    If a woman buys you some Hober ties for Christmas, you marry her, right?

    Sorry to cross-post this but I was responding to someone specific as well as asking some questions.

    As a British expat working in Spain, the input of a native Spaniard could be really useful. I'm looking at shoes for business, is there a generally accepted style or recommendation for businessmen in Spain? Is it similar to us brits perhaps?

    Because I tend to work with many clients from all over (like Mexicans, Spanish, Dutch, Norwegians, Russians, Chinese, Americans, etc), how can I tailor my image to suit broad interpretations of style in business, maybe someone can offer advice on this?

    Thanks!

    You can keep the same basic style, but maybe you should mix up the colors a little bit. Try new colors and mixing different shirts, pants, shoes, and belts. This topic might be better in the Streetwear and Denim section since this section is more for dress clothes.

    So I just tried to post this but I'm not sure if it worked because I can't see it.

    I know this is a total noob question but I am new to all of this. I have a pair of chinos that need to be lengthened about an inch. Incidentally, there is about a one-inch hem inside the trouser legs. Could I simply rip out the seam and roll down the hem? Would the ends of the trouser legs look "unfinished" as a result? Again I know this is a noobie question but I'm just now maturing past my "Jeans and T-shirts" phase so this is new to me. Thanks!

    Wondering if a decent tailor can get pleats out of suit trousers?

    Generally a decent one should be able to.

    Looking for some chukka boots that are $300 or less. I tried on the Alden unlined chukkas and they were fantastic. Very comfortable, great suede quality, and most importantly, they looked sleek. Chukkas tend to have these bulbous toe boxes and these Alden's did not; they were great. Unfortunately I'm not willing to spend $460+tax on chukkas, so if anyone could recommend something high quality that might be equivalent that would be great.
