    What would you suggest for someone of my body type and age looking to build a capsule wardrobe inspired by classic menswear?

    The Modest Man (Brock McGoff) is a similar height and build, and he has plenty of good YouTube videos, articles, and photos that might provide some good ideas. https://www.themodestman.com/how-to-dress-in-20s/

    Cashmere Sweater Hierarchy

    Same problem here. I would have bought more items, but my sizes sell out quickly. Signing up for the email list helps. Their emails are very well done with style tips and insights, not just bulk mailings. Now that I know my sizes and that I like their stuff, I can pounce quicker on the autumn...

    Cashmere Sweater Hierarchy

    Thanks. I compared the measurements carefully before ordering, and maybe this would work better for a taller person. I am an athletic 5'9", and Colhay's fits perfect for me. It's getting to be hard to buy anything else. Colhay's has great quality and value. I just picked up a cashmere jumper -...

    ** Quintessential Crockett & Jones Thread ** (reviews, quality, etc...)

    Is this really the case? I have not noticed in my purchases, other than I don't like the new shoe bags as much.

    Big fan of those, and I wear mine with jeans quite often

    **The Official Shoe Care Thread: Tutorials, Photos, etc.**

    What are preferences on sole edge maintenance? I wear a couple of dress shoes, but mostly Crockett & Jones boots and casual derbies and oxfords. I have been using teinture franchise, which helps maintain the dark brown color. For black sole edges I use a sharpie. However, I am concerned over...

    Cashmere Sweater Hierarchy

    Brora cashmere doesn't get much discussion here (and I didn't see them on the Excel hierarchy sheet), but I am considering a couple of their items. What are people's experiences with the quality and fit?

    ** Quintessential Crockett & Jones Thread ** (reviews, quality, etc...)

    Very nice. I prefer the silhouette of the 341/Swansea to the 325/Pembroke. Those are a great deal at sale price, and I would get a pair if they had them in tan scotch grain.

    Looks great! Do you know which Last these are on?

    Edward Green B/S/T official thread.

    Can Edward Green shoes be resoled with an R1 through independent cobblers, or does this need to be done directly through Edward Green recrafting?

    Edward Green Appreciation: Pictures, Info, and Where to Buy

    Does anyone know what this color and leather is called for the Edward Green Chelsea? This is my first pair, just picked up secondhand.

    ** Quintessential Crockett & Jones Thread ** (reviews, quality, etc...)

    Wow. That probably prices me out. I hope this is because business is good, with demand outstripping supply, and not because they are struggling to balance the books. I guess it's better than cutting corners on quality. ETA: It feels like a big increase over the past couple of years for me...

    ** Quintessential Crockett & Jones Thread ** (reviews, quality, etc...)

    These boots are very versatile. I think because of the cap toe, the 378 toe doesn't seem as pronounced stylistically versus a 378 plain toe. However, the 378 adds room in the toes, which is appreciated. The three pairs of boots I wear every week are the Roughout Conistons, Hurricane Hide...

    ** Quintessential Crockett & Jones Thread ** (reviews, quality, etc...)

    Jim McFarland with McFarland's shoe repair resoled them. When I sent him my Islays, I was hoping to resole from Dainite to Ridgeway. However, we had trouble sourcing Ridgeway and he suggested Londra instead. On Jim's website, you can pay for the resole online and send him your shoes. He does all...

    ** Quintessential Crockett & Jones Thread ** (reviews, quality, etc...)

    These are beautiful boots. After picking them up from Division Road this summer they are a weekly wear. As noted before, it is like a more premium version of CXL. After buying these boots I got them moving outside and gave them a slightly rugged and broken-in look. That's where they really...

    Welcome to the club! This combo has been amazing. It is my most versatile AND most comfortable pair of boots.

    ** Quintessential Crockett & Jones Thread ** (reviews, quality, etc...)

    Here's an impressive and appreciated feature of the speedhooks used by Crockett & Jones. A couple of months ago, I snagged my top speedhook on my jeans when pulling them off. It bent the speedhook pretty handily. Although I bent it back in place, the speedhook died this morning and popped off...

    Scarf Opinions and Key Elements

    Great points, all. I live in Southeast Texas, so there are not many sub-40 days. One scarf should be plenty enough, since it is mainly for utility but should be stylish also. In most other wardrobe facets it has taken a couple of iterations to find the right fit for my style. However, maybe...

    Scarf Opinions and Key Elements

    Scarves are mostly a foreign concept to me. However, I have been wanting to get one that has both great form and great function. Mainly, I would like it to keep my neck warm on cold days. However, it also needs to be very versatile to easily be worn with a jumper or overcoat. Any thoughts...
