    Any suggestions for something rummy? I really liked Idole de Lubin EdT.

    Woah, this is exactly what I'm looking for. Thanks! I've mostly been away from StyleForum the last three years, and you've reminded me what I missed.

    Anyone know where I can get light gray straight-fit jeans? I'm looking for better quality than basic Levi's 501s and not having luck.

    Random Fashion Thoughts (Part 3: Style farmer strikes back) - our general discussion thread

    You may have enough options at this point, but Ettinger is simple and nice: https://www.ettinger.co.uk/search?q=passport&page=1#row_1

    Random Fashion Thoughts (Part 3: Style farmer strikes back) - our general discussion thread

    This may sound odd, but women's Keds champions can work. It's a gender-neutral design. You just have to add 2.5 to your (men's) size, and get a wide (which is men's regular D) width. Cheap, good-looking, minimalist.

    Very first suit for an important job interview - need some advice in a hurry!

    48 is your chest measurement, in inches. That is how suit sizes are determined. A suit are a jacket and trousers that are made from the same fabric. A jacket and trousers that are made from different fabrics aren't suits. Black captoe balmoral oxfords are the ideal interview shoes. But I...

    Olive Mackintosh Dunoon with wool liner

    This is a fall 2014 piece by Mackintosh for J. Peterman. Nice brown-tan-and-red tartan button-out liner. Brown corduroy collar. Made in Scotland. It's in pristine condition. I wore it less than 10 times last winter, none since. Shoulder-to-shoulder: 18.5" Sleeves (shoulder to cuff): 25.75"...

    It's weird. I hadn't looked at that book in a couple of years, picked it up today, read that page (among others), and then saw your question.

    The Bespoke Shoes Thread

    Yes, unless they're five-pocket. And I wear them with other tailored clothes.

    The Bespoke Shoes Thread

     These are all good. But they would all look better worn with pressed corduroys or khakis than they would with jeans.

    The Bespoke Shoes Thread

     The only reason I could see doing this is if you had great difficulty finding boots that fit. It's a formula for creating something that's neither fish nor fowl. Would you order jeans, a t-shirt or a leather jacket from Steed?

    The Bespoke Shoes Thread

     Thanks. I probably should have waited to post until I've worn them more. I've only worn them a little around the house. I'm a difficult fit -- which is why I tried bespoke -- but I'm cautiously optimistic.

    The Bespoke Shoes Thread

    To add to the dark brown blucher parade, here's my first pair of bespoke shoes, from Maftei. I just received them and have a positive first impression of the fit. Pegged soles.
