    BROOKS BROTHERS 17-33 Extra Slim Fit (price drop!)

    ****Price drop!!! Now only $50!**** Worn once. I've lost weight since I originally ordered this shirt and it doesn't fit me well enough to keep in my closet. This is a "green tag" shirt meaning it's part of their extra slim fit series. Feel free to as me any questions. I think I paid about...

    Remove sweat stains in seersucker suit

     I have oxyclean and some arm & hammer cleaning powder stuff. Is this safe to do to my cotton suit? Should I just spot treat or can I soak then wash on delicate and air dry?

    Remove sweat stains in seersucker suit

     I'm assuming the patina portion is sarcasm but I may end up just wearing it like this. I'm going to wear the suit outside and have my wife give me an honest opinion of whether the stains are more or less noticeable in the direct sunlight (clothing can play tricks on you indoors). Still...

    Remove sweat stains in seersucker suit

    Just got back from a thrift store where I picked up a white/grey seersucker suit for $20. It fits surprisingly well right off the rack and I think I can get away with just having it tapered a bit by a tailor. Only problem is the suit is obviously well worn and has some yellowing in areas...

    Cowboy Boots?

     I realize you're making a joke, but I absolutely hate that look on girls

    Cowboy Boots?

     Where do you work now? Still in Texas? As per the square toe, I don't know why those are depicted that way. Here's the actual pair I own: http://s.stpost.com/eccStoreFront/product_images/67610/f_67610_1.jpg

    Cowboy Boots?

     This is good info. I was curious about what kind of heal options are out there. I've also noticed that a lot of boots have large curls for the toe. I would prefer a small curl (or almost none) so they resemble dress shoes. Yeah in Charlotte it's obviously not going to be really common...

    Cowboy Boots?

    Hey Style Forum! It's been a while since I've posted here. I was really active when I was first putting together my "post-college, entry-level-work-world" wardrobe. This place really helped open my eyes to good style, quality clothing, taylors, and cobblers. Thanks! I need to add a pair or...

    What's your cellphone ringer?

    I used to use "old telephone" because I hated the gimmicky ringtones that came with the phone and after college I felt I couldn't have stupid hip hop songs as my ringers anymore... ...until I became obsessed with Archer and grabbed the Pirate Virus ringtone:

    Thoughts on the Citizen Eco Drive?

    There are three basic types of crystals used in watches: acrylic, mineral, and sapphire. Acrylic, which is a type of plastic, scratches relatively easily, but most superficial scratches can be buffed out just as easily. These used to be very common, but aren't used as often in new watches...

    Thoughts on the Citizen Eco Drive?

    I take that you're from the States? These brands are quite common in Europe, and basically offer the best watches for 200-600 euros (USD 250-800 ish). Usually other watches that achieve this price category may look good, but rarely feature things like saphire glass, and in my experience tend to...

    Thoughts on the Citizen Eco Drive?

    I wonder why I don't see many posts mentioning Tissot or Certina as a budget watch. Both have several very nice models that should satisfy the needs of the most. Swiss made and they're usually made out of quality components such as good reliable Quartz mechanisms and most models feature a...

    Thoughts on the Citizen Eco Drive?

    As an aside, where'd you get that Seiko / what model is it? I've been interested in picking one up and that looks like something I'd wear regularly. Not a fan of leather bands myself. Actually, I got it as a gift maybe 8 years ago. The face is pretty scratched because I've worn it daily since I...

    Thoughts on the Citizen Eco Drive?

    Thanks everyone for all the great responses!! I was worried I was going to get flooded with "that's a piece of crap, save more money and by [insert expensive brand here]!" I will take all your advice and do some more shopping, this time with some knowledge under my belt.

    Thoughts on the Citizen Eco Drive?

    No complaints with my Citizen, except that it doesn't have a seconds hand, which makes it a bit hard to get juuuuust right. But it seems to keep reasonable time and looks good. I think it looks a lot cleaner than the model you linked. But there may be a bit of owner bias on that one. I like...

    Thoughts on the Citizen Eco Drive?

    Among enthusiasts Citizen watches are known as something of a joke. Check out the poor man's watch thread for advice. Seiko's the best bet for the lower price ranges. My knowledge of quality watches is slim to none. I know with my price range I can't expect to get much as far as high-end is...

    Thoughts on the Citizen Eco Drive?

    Anyone have any experience with the quality of Citizen watches in this price tier? Also, would it be worth getting an extra brown band? I've never had a non-steel banded watch so I don't really know how hard it is to switch them out for matching purposes...

    Thoughts on the Citizen Eco Drive?

    Right now I just have a Seiko steel band watch. No complaints, it's pretty sharp looking, but days where I'm a little more dressed up I'd like to have a black leather banded watched with a nice level of class (for my price range). What do you all think of the Citizen BM8240-03E? My price...

    Viccel.com socks

    It's your own fault. You shouldn't have purchased the Viccel soccer/football socks. They always come up over the knee, then you need to fold them down so they are rest just above your shin guards. Next time, order the Viccel dress socks if you plan to wear them with a suit. Ha! Along those...
