    The Armoury - Official Affiliate Thread

    I have a dark navy one for the summer. Nothing too exciting, but it goes with everything. Probably my most worn summer jacket.

    The Overcoat Thread

    Both look good, imo. Different lengths for different styles. If the coat on the right were as long as the one on the left, it would look bad. The reverse is also probably true.

    The Overcoat Thread

    Nah. It looks bad buttoned but good unbuttoned. It looks good unbuttoned because the fabric can do stuff and hang in interesting ways. It looks bad unbuttoned because it is too slim for the fabric to do anything and because it is too slim to enhance Simon's proportions. (It also looks weird and...

    The State of Black Tie: Your Observations

    I am looking for a rtw shirt (don't have time for anything else) and was wondering if you all had any suggestions as to where I should get one (I had an option that I thought would work excellently, but things fell through). A few preferences: 1) Not a pleated front. 2) Not too slim fit...

    Alteration tips for DB tuxedo

    Hard to tell from these pics. (It can also be hard to judge when things are so wrinkly and not draping properly.) As far as I can tell, though, the jacket doesn't look too big or anything. The sleeves are obviously too long. The waist on the trousers also looks too tight. In general, you are...

    The best Oxford shirt

    Mercer is probably the best, but by the time you do all the body adjustments, it can get rather pricey. Recently, I've been enjoying J. Press a lot. They switched to unlined collars, they ship right away, and they're not terribly espensive (they're often 15% off). The body works better for me...

    The Official-ish DC Thread

    TBH, I think that styling is bad. Putting fabric on a table is not the same as putting it on a human. Early on, I once owned a jacket like this. Not a good choice. A basic question I ask is what shirt, pants, and tie am I going to wear with the jacket. A jacket should either go with a blue or...

    The Official-ish DC Thread

    I'd try something else. A light grey glen plaid is also (normally) going to be a pain to pair with other things.

    Does anyone have pictures of their MTM? And what are the rates?

    Backpack vs Messenger Bag vs Briefcase

    Leather backpacks look stupid, IMO. Briefcases are good, but don't get one that's too formal. A lot also depends on how you use it. For several years, I used a Frank Clegg briefcase--and it was great for carrying around a laptop and papers--but once I changed jobs, it became inconvenient. I...

    The Least Official Natalino Appreciation Thread

    I think they're very nice. I like the Natalino cut, and the cloth, though hardly uncommon, is one of my favorites: good drape, good crease, and some visual interest. I wear mine regularly.

    Coordinating with Donegal Trousers

    Not a fan of donegal trousers in general, and I think those look particularly not good. Trousers should be subtler.

    Harley of Scotland Shetlands

    Cut them off. Don't brush. I have thick Harleys too, and they have been fine on the pilling front after the first few months.

    Harley of Scotland Shetlands

    I have Odies aplenty. They pill too at first. IDK. Every sweater I have ever had has pilled a good amount at first. Lockie, Odie, Harley, Inis Meain, etc.--doesn't matter. Some may be slightly better than others, but none are perfect. I am pretty sure brushing is quite bad for pilling. To...

    Harley of Scotland Shetlands

    Sweaters pill a lot at first and less over time. Old sweaters will pill the least.

    The unofficial Drake's London Appreciation Thread

    I like cable knit sweaters, but not cable knit shetlands. They are flimsier and don't hold their shape as well, and regular shetlands have enough visual interest as is.

    The unofficial Drake's London Appreciation Thread

    Drake's Shetlands=very pricey without additional quality to match. Many other options to consider.

    Styling shacket/overshirt with pocket square?

    You could. But it has to be a more casual material (not straight linen or silk) and in a fold that doesn't look too neat: maybe a poof, not a tv fold or anything with points. A good pattern would also be good.

    Where can a tall person buy a suit?

    Junior's does MTM in Philly. Also...NYC is not that far away. Go there for a day. Get a suit. Eat some good food. Go to a museum. See a show.
