    Luxire Custom Clothing - Official Affiliate Thread

    Has anyone ever tried the "fade wash" option on wool flannel? I'm thinking of ordering a pair of pants and want something like a garment-dyed look. See attached.

    The Uniqlo Thread

    Can anyone compare the Cotton single breasted coat (070876) to the Soutain collar coat (073162)? The price is the same and they look very similar online. I'm looking for something that I can wear with a suit.

    Recent Yoox Purchase

    Judging from the waist suppression and your description of the sizing, the Ferre is probably a women's coat. Glad you like it.

    Uniqlo B-002 in raw / dark wash?

    I am trying to figure out if Uniqlo still sells its "regular bootcut" jeans (the B-002 cut) in raw denim or a dark wash. They certainly did a few years ago, as evidenced by this thread: http://mynudies.com/showthread.php?5...B-002-day-one. However, all the Uniqlo website has now in the B-002 cut...

    Ask me about Eyewear!

    I got Crazy Glue on a pair of Tom Ford 5012 frames while trying to do a small repair. Then, to make matters much worse, I managed to remove the finish from the acetate while trying to remove the Crazy Glue. Will plastic polish restore the finish? If not, where is the cheapest place to buy a...

    Southeast Asia Trip (Bangkok, Ho Chi Minh, Hong Kong)

    That area is not what it used to be. the area from the train station and the mall is filled scammers, thieves and everything else in between. You will be shot, stabbed and gang-raped within 5 minutes if you're not careful and not necessarily in that order. I would avoid altogether. I visit there...

    Southeast Asia Trip (Bangkok, Ho Chi Minh, Hong Kong)

    Which tailors in Ho Chi Minh did you use? Any recommendations? I agree that Chan would be the best option but I just can't afford to spend $1,000 on a suit and doubt he can turnaround a quality product in 4 days. I can't recall the name of the only one I would even think about recommending...

    Southeast Asia Trip (Bangkok, Ho Chi Minh, Hong Kong)

    Here is my advice, having tried tailoring in all three cities. 1. Get your suits made at WW Chan in Hong Kong, or perhaps one of the other high-end Hong Kong tailors reviewed elsewhere here if you want to try to save a few hundred dollars. Even though WW Chan is relatively expensive - at the...

    Is styleforum turning off new members?

    I think the site does not have the same atmosphere it did initially. Amen to that.

    Cool Shoes, Paraphernalia & Desiderata - Part II

    John Lobb Perrier pebblegrains 9.5 BIN $299 someone please tell me this is marked a US size so I can buy them? They're UK sized, but I think you know that. Do you REALLY want a pair of used, rubber-soled, pebble-grain bluchers for $300 plus shipping, even if they're made by John Lobb?

    What are the most common/ acceptable/recognizable ties out there?

    Why must your tie be easily recognized (as what?) and common?

    Tailors in Hoi An or Hanoi

    Been there, done that - don't bother. The only satisfactory thing I've had made in Vietnam is a pair of linen pajamas. Generally speaking, Vietnamese tailors (I use the term loosely) have very poor knowledge concerning the proper construction of tailored clothing. Also, the selection of...

    Where to stay in Hong Kong

    When I'm paying my own way, I stay at the YMCA Salisbury. It is not your typical YMCA - think more of a really nice Holiday Inn. Very clean, very quiet, in a great location - across the street from the Peninsula, about two blocks from WW Chan. When others are paying, the Peninsula or the...

    Do You Recommend Pant Press (Valet)

    1) Yes. 2) Yes. 3) Yes - every time I wear slacks. 4) No. 5) Yes, but you will need to iron them first. 6) Makes no difference in the world.

    When do you retire your shirts?

    For those who retire a shirt when it frays, why is this? I always assume it's too subtle for others to see, and it certainly doesn't bother me.
