    Slim/close-fitting withOUT waist-suppression?

    Anyone have any experience with getting a close-fitting jacket without all that feminine waist suppression? I've struggled with this for years in my bespoke suits... I recall reading Jeffery D or someone's analysis of Neapolitan tailoring, where he described this method of cutting close to the...

    Foundation to conceal redness?

    Anyone here have any recommendations for a mens foundation or something to conceal redness and dark puffiness under the eyes? I've tested a lot of products, watched a lot of youtube videos, and even had my gf put some stuff on my face and it always looks like obvious makeup. The powder stuff...

    Do double-breasted jackets really accentuate hips?

    It seems to be a common warning that DBs enlarge and draw attention to the hips, and men who don't want that area accentuated should avoid them. I wonder though if the DB really does do that any more than the single-breasted. It could simply be due to the fact that DB are often...

    3 piece suit:Trendy, classic or outdated?

    Trudeau proved today that the 3-piece is over; maybe it's the fact that he looks like he's 16 years old, but the vest just looks like costume and it detracted from his gravitas IMHO.

    How to fade a black shirt?

    Anyone know how to lightly fade a solid black t-shirt to charcoal without bleach? Bleach tends to do weird things like make it green or purple, since, as I understand it, most black dye is really just a very dark color. Soak in salt? Solid black seems too much like a waiter or art student to me

    Dress trousers and chelsea boots

    You need to buy higher boots, no other solution. I have no idea why the hell they sell ankle boots where this is an inevitable problem; I wasted so much $ on boots that were too short and my trousers always got stuck in them. I just go bespoke now and get them a few inches higher, never had...

    The Suits of Spectre (2015), the latest Bond film

    His suits are almost always too tight; pretty amateur mistake on the part of the designer. They really should be using a stretch wool so it doesn't look like a seam will explode every time he makes an action move

    The LL.M thread

    My impression was that the degree itself is pretty useless except for the networking opportunities being in school provides. Would be happy to be corrected though. Also, I assume this thread is for American JDs.

    anyone dealing with hair loss/thinning/balding?

    I don't know why anyone would risk side effects on their schlong with those pills, so I've been using hair-thickening serums and sprays. It's impossible to say if they're working or not since I don't want to risk stopping for 6 months to ascertain a control. I grow my hair out at the temples...

    Thin (not thick) normal-width neckties?

    Anybody know of any ties that are thin but still normal width (not skinny)? Trend seems to be for thicker ties for fatter knots, but I need a slim knot for a very narrow spread collar shirt I have. Thanks

    Unfunded Liabilities: a/k/a The Cloth Thread

    Mohair question: Does mohair twill exist? The two best-performing fabrics I have in my wardrobe are an 8 oz mohair/wool blend, which drapes beautifully like a fabric thrice its weight, and a cavalry twill which hasn't required cleaning in 6 years. Seems like the best imaginable suiting fabric...

    The Architecture Thread

     That's not at all going to look like another aging 80's relic in Van's decrepit downtown So many modern architects seem incapable of recognizing how their projects will look 30 years from now

    Show us your Chan

    I've had a few suits made by them, even in 16 oz, fitted in HK, and they're not perfectly clean. They're better than the OP's but not what I think one deserves with the price point. That being said, I've never had a clean back, even from SR, so I've come to the conclusion that it's simply not...

    Show us your Chan

     Lightweight fabric and grey color is the worst combination for showing fitting flaws, and I don't really think one can expect a tailor like Chan to churn out clean backs regardless. The only well-fitting light grey back I think I've ever seen was Jeffery D. I used to canvas the back of my...

    Zee's Leatherware & Shoe Co.

    Custom designed jodphurs off a last I carved myself. More Western looking than I thought but will work for casual wear.

    The Hong Kong Tailors Thread

    I'll keep using them too, simply because they have my pattern and the guys there are nice; but I don't feel like I'm getting a 'deal' anymore. I don't have an alternative recommendation, but if this Sifu guy is cheaper and it's still full canvassing then I say go for it.
