    NFL 2016-17 Thread

     Disagree. Cleveland has way more cap space than they know what to do with, gets a 2018 second round pick and a 6th round pick in exchange for a 4th round pick. Worst case, they park him in the roster for a year and get a bit more draft value. Best case, they trade him to someone dumb.

    Mid-2015 Clothing Thoughts - Have Your Views on CM Changed and Why

    Last year I put together a mid-year clothing insight thread (http://www.styleforum.net/t/405006/mid-2014-clothing-insights-a-year-in-the-life-of-a-sf-wardrobe), where I tracked a lot of what I wore and how often certain things came out versus others. I was originally going to just update it with...

    Wardrobe Building Philosophy Discussion (Optimization, Variety, Versatility, Uniform)

    Recent discussions on a few threads here on SF have prompted me to spend a fair amount of time thinking about how the concept of optimization applies to our wardrobes and how it intersects with variety and versatility. These considerations also tend to apply to how we decide what to wear / how...

    2014 Clothing Insights and 2015 Clothing Plans

    As we near the end of 2014, it’s about time to start thinking about insights on clothing we’ve gained this year and our plans and ideas for next year. For your reference, threads from previous years are here: As the starter of the thread for this year, I suppose it's my responsibility to go...

    Mid-2014 Clothing Insights (A Year in the Life of a SF Wardrobe)

    I may be slightly insane or just enjoy tracking way too many things in an Excel spreadsheet, but a year ago I decided to record the jackets I ties I wear (or if I am not wearing a jacket or tie) on a daily basis and get a sense of what I actually reach for and how often I bother to dress up. I...

    Chicago SF Meetup Interest

    Chicago SFers, I haven't seen a thread on a Chicago-based SF meetup thread for a long time (last I saw from a quick search function was back in 2009) and thought it would be a good idea to start one. Those of you who are around the city and interested, let me know either via this thread of PM...

    The Great Ecru / Off-White Shirt Conundrum

    I did a couple searches and it seems there are not a lot of threads dedicated to ecru / off-white shirts. Perhaps there is a reason for that, but it's been awhile since we've had a thread on it and I thought it might be interesting to see what the consensus is. SF loves to talk about white...

    Brooks Brothers "Design Your Own" vs. 1818 / Suiting Essentials

    I've looked through the Brooks Brothers website and they have a "Design Your Own" function for suits. Basically you start with a fit (Madison / Fitzgerald / Regent / Milano) and pick other details such as buttoning style, lapel stitching, flap vs. patch pockets and a few other things. You then...

    The Casual Suit vs. Odd Jacket and Trousers

    Sometimes a man attends a wedding, funeral, job interview or work in a formal environment where he's expected to be in a suit. In these environments, one is probably going to default to a conservative blue or grey worsted, possibly with stripes depending on the occasion. There are times when...

    The Linen Non-Navy BlazerSuit

    I've seen a couple of threads on possible BlazerSuit variations but haven't seen much discussion on creating a BlazerSuit in a non-navy linen. A linen suit seems so inherently casual to me that patch pockets would work very well on it, not to mention that I think unlined or quarter lined jackets...

    The Wardrobe Construction and Development Thread

    Apologies if this has been done before, but I did a couple searches and didn't see anything comparable. The idea of this thread is to have a place where people who are in the process of building out a more complete wardrobe can post about the current state of their wardrobe, their aspirations...

    Brooks Brothers MTM Process - A Review

    In late March, Brooks Brothers had one of their semi-annual made to measure events here in Chicago and I decided to take the plunge. I'm very happy with my things from Joe at MyTailor but figured it never hurts to try something new, especially when you have a brick and mortar store that you can...

    Large Scale Herringbone Linen Trousers - Summer Appropriate?

    About a month ago, I purchased a pair of light brown herringbone linen trousers from Lands End. At the time they seemed like a reasonably priced way to add some light brown linen to my summer wardrobe. After wearing them once, I'm starting to think that the large scale herringbone pattern makes...

    Thoughts on New Odd Jacket Commissions (Meeting Joe of MyTailor on Monday)

    After having rebuilt a decent amount of my wardrobe (gym expanded me to a 40S from a 38S) and getting back to basics, I'm debating where to go next and am going to have Joe at MyTailor make me up a couple of things next week. I currently have (from various sources): Suits / Formalwear - Black...

    Poll and Discussion - Most Worn Shirt Color

    Hi All, I thought it would be interesting to take a poll and see what shirt colors appear most commonly in SF members' closets / daily lives and see how that diverges from the general population. Please note that tuxedo shirts do not count for purposes of this poll as there is clearly only one...

    How Do You Wear Your Navy Blazer

    There was a suggestion in the "The Great Navy Blazer Conundrum" thread to start a new thread about how those of us who love the navy blazer wear it, so here goes. I wear my navy blazer most often with cream, tan, light grey and medium grey trousers. Depending on the trousers, time of day and my...

    Seersucker Double Vented Suit

    Hi All, I've been mulling over buying a seersucker suit for a couple of years and have finally decided I'd like to buy one. The only problem is most of the seersucker I see comes with single vented jackets. Nothing against these on other people but I just don't think single vents look good on...

    OCBD / Button Down Collar Shirts - Understanding Their Purpose

    Hi All, I've tried finding an answer to this searching the forum, but to no avail. I'm trying to understand the purpose and value that OCBD (or really button down collars in general) have in a well dressed man's wardrobe as they seem to be fairly popular on here and praised by several posters...

    AE Park Avenue to C&J Drummond Size Translation

    Hi All, Given the relative strength of the dollar, I'm thinking about buying a pair of C&J Drummonds. I've read up about size suggestions and all but on looking back at the Pediwear website, I see they now have the Drummond in G width. I normally take an 8EEE in the Park Avenue (5 Last); any...
