    Shoe Wear Question

    I travel almost every 3-4 days/week for work. I carry on my luggage but between dress shoes and runnnig shoes for my workout, the shoes always tend to take up the most space in my bags. I am wondering - is it damaging to my high quality shoes to take only one pair a week but wear them on 3-4...

    High-Rise Khakis - BUT Clean & Tapered

    Can anyone recommend some makes/models of Khakis that are higher-rise but still not exceedingly baggy/sloppy/formless? I am fairly slim and would like a nice tapered leg, just don't want any of these lower rises that seem to be correlated with this fit. I dont want khakis that are tight - just...

    How Much Did You Like Your First SR Bespoke Experience

    I am curious about others' experiences with savile row or other high quality tailors. Particularly, how do you feel about the outcome of your early garments. For example, on a 1-10 scale (1 being abject failure and 10 exceeding even your wildest dreams) what would you rate your first one or two...

    What Are Your Thoughts on Flat Front Dress Pants?

    It seems that most 'classic' references are trousers with pleats. I am wondering if you view flat fronts as a viable alternative to pleats or is it something you associate with a fashionable trend that is popular right now? I have always preferred pleats and cuffs but I recently acquired some...

    Does Anyone Have ANY Idea What Shirt This May Be???

    Hey Guys, I know chances are very, very small but I was wondering if anyone might know who makes the shirts in the following images. They appear to be very distinctive (paricularly in the chest pocket design and the buttons that are on the sides of the shirt near the bottom). Sorry, i could...

    Measuring Shirt Collar Spread

    What is the typical way to measure it? Is it usually described in degrees (i.e. angle that the points make when meeting at the top) - can you measure it as the distance between where the points touch the shirt?

    How Should Pants Fit?

    I have been curious about this for quite some time. I am in the process of building out my odd jacket and trouser portions of my wardrobe (mostly trousers in flannel, some worsted, and some chinos for casual) and am hoping for some guidance on the fit of the latter. In a lot of the reading I...

    Suit Coat Question

    I had a question about how the shoulder should fit/look on a suit coat, when having one shoulder lower than the other. if the jacket is cut to fit each side (which seems like it is the 'proper' bespoke way, as opposed to just putting in some padding on the low shoulder side) wouldn't it be...

    Dunhill Bespoke?
