    Edward Green Appreciation: Pictures, Info, and Where to Buy

    The difference between E and F has more to do with overall instep volume than it does with just the width of the shoe. I have made the mistake of assuming that width was the only difference and it's not. I once obtained a Chelsea on the (I think) 202 last in an F fitting to compare it to the E...

    Understood. I appreciate the explanation.

    Question regarding style of overcoat

    You are, of course, entirely entitled to your opinions, which is all your assertions of fact are. As are mine. But you did present your opinions of overcoat length and some other statements about double-breasted lapels and jackets as some sort of statements of general truths. So I was wrong when...

    I can certainly attest that wherever it is I am going, I am not going there fast.

    Question regarding style of overcoat

    I guess I'd have to ask what kind of jackets you're wearing where the peaked lapels "droop and bend"? I've never seen or experienced such a thing. This is just about complete nonsense. An overcoat should come well below the knees, several inches at least. Otherwise, what's the point? Also...

    Spectator Appreciation

    And funnily enough, I just got this delivery from Edward Green:

    Edward Green Appreciation: Pictures, Info, and Where to Buy

    These were delivered today, and they make me very happy! Custom Malvern III on the 202 last, made up in snuff suede and lily-white suede.

    The State of Black Tie: Your Observations

    I'll add my two cents' worth. For a first tuxedo, get a black, single breasted, peaked lapel jacket with grosgrain facings. Do not get vents in the coat. All good advice except for the vents. Ventless jackets are not somehow less comfortable, nor do they present a problem when sitting. Having...

    The State of Black Tie: Your Observations

    Thank you. Perhaps I should bring it out and give it an airing, again.

    The State of Black Tie: Your Observations

    It certainly sounded interesting when I bought it. But, I never really warmed up to it and I don't really wear it much any more.

    The State of Black Tie: Your Observations

    It's not all that strange. Indeed, unless you're quite close, it is not really discernible as seersucker at all.

    The State of Black Tie: Your Observations

    It might. It's so difficult to speculate. Personally, I'm not averse to mixing black separates (I have a black seersucker dinner jacket that I seldom wear, but I wear it with regular black tuxedo trousers), but midnight blue might be less successful.

    The State of Black Tie: Your Observations

    I would not. I wear all sorts of different color dinner jackets with black trousers, but midnight blue and black just doesn't seem to work. I've tried the combination in front of a mirror at home, and it just looked to me like I'd just accidentally grabbed the wrong jacket.
