    Allen Edmonds Appreciation Thread - reviews, pictures, sizing, etc...

    Does anyone have pictures of what the bourbon color looks like after wear and several polishes (with either bourbon or walnut polish)? Curious to see how the color changes over time (or doesn't).

    The Watch Appreciation Thread (Reviews and Photos of Men's Timepieces by Rolex, Patek Philippe, Brei

     I bought a mid-1980s (toward the end of its production) ref. 6694 last year and love it. It's my one-watch and I wear it every day. Winds like butter, is a real workhorse, and goes with anything. Hard to beat and represents an outstanding value, as long as you don't mind having to wind...

    FS: Raffaele Caruso 50R/40R 100% Cotton Blue Herringbone Blazer/Sportsjacket

    Keep in mind the length is measured from the top of the collar, not the bottom. I find this to be around 0.5" shorter than my other 40R jackets.

    I have a beautiful Raffaele Caruso EU 50R/US 40R 100% cotton medium blue herringbone sportsjacket, just in time for spring and summer. I'd describe the color as "air force blue" and imparts a casual but tailored look with the herringbone cotton fabric. I'm the original owner and did not wear it...

    Allen Edmonds Appreciation Thread - reviews, pictures, sizing, etc...

     I use dark brown polish on my walnut Cliftons, and it has darkened the color slightly and developed a nice patina. Perhaps has made the color a little less tan and a little richer, almost like a chili without the red. But given your concerns, I think you just need to start with a different...

    Allen Edmonds "Burton" Bourbon-Brown 10.5 D NIB

    For sale is a brand new in box pair of Allen Edmonds Burtons in 10.5 D (medium width). The color is bourbon, which is a nice medium-dark brown with a hint of red that they don't use much anymore. Bought these recently for myself and they just don't work out for me, so selling at cost. These fit...

    Stunning Raffaele Caruso/Adriano & Sons EU 52R/42R 40R Solid Grey/Charcoal Birdseye Suit NWT

    Unbelievable suit for sale here and it kills me to sell it, but the pants are just a little too slim for me. This is a solid charcoal grey subtle heather birdseye fabric in a three-season weight. Size is EU 52R drop 7 but is on the slimmer side and could easily fit 40R's as well. This suit...

    The Watch Appreciation Thread (Reviews and Photos of Men's Timepieces by Rolex, Patek Philippe, Brei

    Just inherited this vintage Omega. Any thoughts as to the model, era or other provenance? Having a tough time finding a similar one online, especially because there is no designation such as Seamaster, Constellation, etc.

    Does anyone have one of their mid-length jackets? How do they fit? I'm also interested to see if anyone's bought one. What's the quality like, also? Anyone?

    Where can I find thick dress socks?

    Go to Macy's and check out their Goldtoe selection. Usually there are at least some thicker ones. That is what I've done for my slightly larger shoes.

    Interview Attire for a 15-year-old boy

    Wonderland? Suit and tie? What ever you're smoking isn't legal. Clean. No ripped jeans. No offensive risky tshirts. Dress pants,shirt and sweater is likely going to be better then 99% of the other kids. Of course maybe things have changed since I got hired at wonderland 30 years ago. +1 Dockers...

    Oxxford Suiting Lines

    Machine-made fully canvassed. Still excellent quality but not quite at their main line. Probably comparable to Zegna or Isaia in terms of quality. If you need a solid navy suit, this is a good deal. Retail is around $2500 IIRC (as opposed to $4000 for mainline).
