The tip about exposing the gap is priceless.
I've watched that video many times - generally a couple of hours before attending a black tie event
I would practice it on someones wrist a few times, then move to your neck.
I practiced on my thigh, closer to my neck size and I don't need anyone...
A couple of weeks ago, I spent a whole day shoeshop-hopping in Brussels. I covered most of the brands I'm interested in, taking notes of which last and size I need in a particular model. All the sales people were very friendly, although I didn't buy a single pair. Just make sure to put on clean...
In Europe, the dockers slim fit chinos are sold for app â‚¬90 ($140)
That's almost 3 times as much as in the States.
I thought we had a strong Euro??
Anyone feel like sending me 3 pairs of city chinos?
I was looking for foul weather knock-about shoes and got the Kenleys for 55$. For that price they seem ok, but I wouldn't have paid 200$. They do look a bit plasticky out of the box. We'll see how they develop after a couple of wearings.
Just got 9 pairs of colorful Effio socks from this guy:
They arrived this morning and I have to say that they are lovely. The seller claims that they are made at the same factory at which Nagrani and Paul Smith socks are made.
I really dislike that dinner jacket, mostly because of the lapels, but also because it looks a bit boxy.
What's your budget? I find that peak lapel DJs look best, of course with a self-tie bow-tie.
I would also try to find an auction where the seller gives accurate measurements so you're sure...
