    What ever happened to silk shirts?

    So I've been reading my way through the original (Fleming) Bond books and the most consistent sartorial reference I've seen is to 007 wearing white silk shirts. Was this common back in the 50's and 60's? If so, whatever happened to them? I could imagine silk shirts draping better than the cotton...

    Christmas gift for GF of one month?

    Have been dating a girl for roughly a month now - what do you guys think an appropriate gift would be? Obviously I'm not too invested but would like to find something thoughful.

    Wanting to get into jazz

    After taking a trial listen in response to reading a recommendation of the Good Night and Good Luck soundtrack by Dianne Reeves in the "smoking music" thread, I realize that I really enjoy this type of jazz. What are some artists (modern or classic) that I should try out? I'm very much...

    Caribbean vacation alone?

    Partially due to a recent upheaval in my personal life, I'm seriously considering taking a Caribbean-area vacation by myself in April. Should be some good time away and all that... I'm looking for location recommendations and anyone's experiences in doing this... I've done Mexico and enjoyed...

    SF Buy/Sell vs. AAAC

    This just occurred to me - why has the SF Buy/Sell become so popular versus the almost non-existent sales forum on AAAC? As recently as 2-3 years ago I can remember post counts being similar between the two forums. I would think that would equate to relatively equal chances for success between...

    Availability of discounted Gitman?

    The cheapest I can ever seem to find Gitman Bros. shirts is 25% off the retail price of $80-$130 at my local Belk's. Are there any online or B&M stores that tend to have sales/clearances better than this?

    The Next Food Network Star

    Anyone taking bets as to who will prevail Sunday evening? I personally can't stand the woman and her happy homemaker schtick, so I'm definitely rooting for the guy.

    Shopping in ATL

    I'm already planning to hit the NM Last Call, Syms, and Nordstom Rack - anywhere else I shouldn't miss?

    Bread in a Kitchenaid mixer

    I've had a Kitchenaid mixer with a dough hook for a little while now, but haven't gotten around to making any bread with it. Any good recipes that you gentleman use? I'm hopefully looking for something sort of rustic and French or Italian-inspired. In other words, certainly not something that...

    Appropriate "biz casual" outerwear?

    I'm getting ready to start my first job out of school - the dress code will of course be "business casual". What I'm struggling with is trying to find an appropriate coat to wear during the workday this winter. I would normally jump at the chance to wear a heavier sport coat such as a tweed but...

    Critique the fit of my HF Madison

    As the first two have obviously not worked out, I posted a couple of pics of a Corneliani on the second page I'm trying to find a new basic, SF-approved charcoal suit and picked up a HF Madison off Bluefly. The shoulders are a good fit I think but the rest, especially the back is iffy. Thanks...

    Basic suit at Paul Stuart?

    I picked up a made-by-Samuelsohn 2B, single vent, flat front navy windowpane suit from the "Top Secret" sale last week and it's the best fitting RTW suit I've ever bought. I'm now interested in getting the same cut (althought possibly with pleats) in a solid navy or charcoal to serve as a more...

    Good tailor in Raleigh, NC?

    This was inspired by a similar thread a few minutes ago. Has anyone had experience with a good tailor in Raleigh? I know Duke's is well recommended, and do a good job hemming, cuffing, etc., but I feel that they really don't understand the way tailored clothing is supposed to fit. I need to...

    Changing the angle of sleeve attachment

    I'm hoping I can articulate myself clearly regarding the question after a few drinks and so forth... Anyway, please bear with me. I've come to the conclusion that in order for many jackets to fit me properly I will need to have the angle at which the sleeve attaches to the chest adjusted...

    How to procure Canali on sale?

    I've come to the decision that I want to purchase a charcoal Canali suit as the cut works really well for me. However, I am rather reluctant to pay the $8XX that Bluefly wants for one - you guys have spoiled me with all of your discount shopping. As I am in NC, there are only a couple of local...

    A weekend in Charlotte, NC - Where to go?

    I'll be spending a long weekend in Charlotte, NC later this month and am wondering which stores are a must-visit? In particular, are there any decent outlets in the area? Any dining recommendations are also welcome!

    Where to buy a kitchen knife sharpening stone?

    My girlfriend recently purchased a set of Furi kitchen knives for me (not the best I know) and I'm looking for a proper sharpening stone for them. Have already checked L&T, BBB, etc. and found nothing but those awful diamond sharpeners. Any comments on technique would be appreciated as well!

    Breuer shirts at Saks.com

    They've been marked down from $225 to $67 and appear to be a pretty good deal. For someone with a 17" neck such as myself, that is. Does anyone have any experience with them? I'll probably have to have the sleeves shortened, which would be ok if they are anywhere near slim-fitting.

    Pictures of AE Soho

    Has anyone seen any pictures of the AE Soho besides the awful marketing photos on their website? I'm thinking of picking up a pair in cognac but would like to get a better look at them before I order. Thanks!
