    Best suit fabric to avoid developing shine

    Thanks, this is great advice. I'm guessing then that my BB 1818s aren't great quality, because they've all developed a shine, on the jackets as well as the pants. I almost never dry clean, and I wear them on average 2x per week. I learned to sit on a towel at work because the modern mesh...

    Best suit fabric to avoid developing shine

    Hello all ! I'm planning to have some m2m suits made this Spring, probably at Knot Standard. My style tends towards BB 1818. Like everyone, one thing I really hate is when a suit starts to get shiny after a couple of years. What fabrics should I choose that will resist this kind of wear...

    Trying to find out if suits are worth selling

     Thank you. This makes sense, at least to me. I really appreciate the feedback. I'm still learning about this stuff.

    Trying to find out if suits are worth selling

    Thanks for the advice, but I'm not looking for a fool. I would never try to rip someone off. Every time I sold clothing I offered a 100% money-back guarantee if not satisfied for any reason, no questions asked. My friend was a very successful executive who spent a lot of time in Hong Kong...

    Trying to find out if suits are worth selling

    Hi all, A friend of mine passed away suddenly a few weeks ago, and I'm trying to help his family with his estate. I've bought and sold pre-owned suits myself in the past, but those were all known brands. My late friend's suits are M2M but there's no brand label inside as far as I can see, but...

    NWT Brooks Brothers 1818 Regent 44R Solid Navy

    I bought this suit last year from Brooks and it's still in the original bag in my closet on it's Hanger Project hanger. I haven't removed the tags or even tried the suit on. I have a lot of suits (my wife says too many) and my job now really doesn't require me to dress as well as I used to...

    Herman Miller Aeron Chair Shreds Pants?

    I've been using an Aeron at work for about 10 years now and I love it, so much so that I bought one for my office at home. That being said, about a year ago, I started a job that required me to wear suits to work, as opposed to khakis and jeans. In preparation, I bought some new BB 1818s, as...

    Advice: What to tell my girlfriend

     After my OP I noticed that I got rid of the wing collar at some point and replaced it with a turn down collar. I prefer the wing but I'm ok with either.

    What things about your own wardrobe annoy you to OCD levels?

    For me, it's when my shirt cuffs are either too long or too short. I get really stressed when that half inch of shirt doesn't show.

    Advice: What to tell my girlfriend

     She is basing her opinion on black tie functions that she attended in the past. I don't know how serious the dress code was for any of them because I wasn't there. The one we're going to is a charity function and we live in New York City, so I'm guessing that it'll be fairly formal. What...

    Advice: What to tell my girlfriend

    Thanks for all of the advice. The reason for my OP was for advice on how to explain correct formal attire to a girlfriend who doesn't agree. I don't need any confirmation on what the right attire is.

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

    Has AE quality gone down in noticeable ways? After about a 10 year hiatus I've started buying AEs again. I have some AEs that are over 10 years old and it looks like the new ones are in worse shape than the old ones. I bought another pair yesterday, and the sales guy mentioned that the pair I...

    I'm considering a Black Fleece BB4 that's currently on Ebay. I'm familiar with 1818 and GF cuts. Would the BB4 be closest to a 44R GF Madison, or something else?

    Advice: What to tell my girlfriend

    What really gets my goat is that she thinks a tux should be little more than a black business suit, and that there's something wrong with me for wanting to do it right. Actually, she think that what I want to wear is just plain wrong. For her to have stylistic preferences that differ from mine...

    Advice: What to tell my girlfriend

    It's tux season again, and my girlfriend has very strong opinions about my suit. She prefers spread collar to wing, straight tie to bow, and thinks my patent oxfords look feminine. Predictably, she also hates the cummerbund and isn't crazy about peaked lapels. She (rightly) says that most men...

    I'm a BB customer in NYC and am considering MTM. If quite happy with GF when I can get them for 30% off. Here's my question: Would a suit from Mr. Ned be better for less money? I know the MTM suit would fit better, but are the fabrics and construction going to be better as well?
