    Is gabardine considered a flannel?

    Thanks for the advice and leads. Any particular recommendations for wool flannel, worsted or otherwise?

    Is gabardine considered a flannel?

    Northeast, which back in the day I would have said was much the same as the Midwest, but these days I think I should have a good amount of tropical wool and linen.

    Is gabardine considered a flannel?

    I did shorten the quote, and while things are clearer for me, I'm still learning the ropes on all this. Currently I'm trying to get to the bottom of high twist and covert pants. If you to recommend a trouser starter package, what would it be?

    Sorry duplicate message

    Is gabardine considered a flannel?

    Ah, so a wordier way of putting it would be "gabardine is another type of worsted wool fabric and tweed is another type of woolen fabric?" I still think it's confusing to introduce two fabrics in a primer that are not mentioned elsewhere in the article.

    Is gabardine considered a flannel?

    I thought it (and worsted wool in general) were distinct from flannel, but an article at Die Workwear (and others at Put Thus On), worsted wools are described as just being a type of flannel. The youtube video also attached only confused things more. “Like all wool fabrics, flannel comes in two...

    The unofficial Drake's London Appreciation Thread

    Are Drake's Games blazers limited editions, or do they come in and out of availability?

    Ah gotcha.

    The Official-ish DC Thread

    I found it all helpful. I thought the Zara comment might have been or trolling or was legitimately a shot on Todd Snyder - maybe both? Do you have any thoughts on MTM in DC?

    Ah, gotcha, thanks!

    The Official-ish DC Thread

    Yeah, I was thinking that they seemed like the next step up the chain from Banana Republic, Abercrombie & Fitch, and J Crew. Sid Mashburn seems like a winner though. I also saw there was a J Press listed as being in DC, though I don't know much about them.

    Gotta ask, is there a inside joke subtext I'm missing?

    Stepping up from Khakis and Polos

    Thanks that's a huge help! I haven't bought dress shoes in ages, and recommendations there?

    The Official-ish DC Thread

    I'd at the least like to see what their stuff looks like in person, so thanks for putting their brick and mortar store on my radar. I know there was a Todd Snyder in DC, but they had a fire and closed. Did they reopen, and are they worth checking out?

    Stepping up from Khakis and Polos

    Yeah, I'm that guy in the office with khakis and polos. In my defense, that's pretty much how everyone dresses there. What are some good basic pieces to get to elevate my look?

    The Official-ish DC Thread

    I'm trying to branch out beyond mall stores in my area of Maryland and was thinking of heading down to some stores in DC. Any particular recommendations? I'm mainly looking for business casual and evenings & weekends stuff.

    Birdseye as Sport Coat?

    Fair enough! That's why I figured I'd ask, wouldn't want to Gaetz up. I'll stick to Hopsack and Herringbone.

    Birdseye as Sport Coat?

    Can a wool birdseye jacket be used as a sport coat, provided it's not too formal a cut and the pants work? The first pic is from Suit Supply, and seems a much more casual look than what I think of as traditional. The second is from Proper Cloth, and nothing stands out as being much different...

    Introduce yourself.

    Hi Stylers, I'm Aaron, just turned 50 last year and trying cultivate a much better style than the minimum standards one I've been maintaining for too long - just picking up whatever from box stores. I went full time WFH right when COVID hit, so I've focused mostly on picking up joggers and...
