    SPIER & MACKAY - Official Affiliate Thread

    Oh yes, I visit South FL often... smokin' hot. Did you notice much of a difference between the 2 fabrics?

    SPIER & MACKAY - Official Affiliate Thread

    Quite true. And luckily, as I am self-employed in a slightly offbeat industry, I have leeway to set the tone.

    SPIER & MACKAY - Official Affiliate Thread

    Thanks, I've enjoyed linen shirts and pants for the wrinkly coolness they offer, but had not considered hopsack or Mock Leno.

    SPIER & MACKAY - Official Affiliate Thread

    I'm looking at a linen blazer/ sportcoat for the summer months (northeast USA). Any comments from those who own a S+M 100% linen jacket (or a linen/cotton blend) as to how they feel & wear compared to seersucker? I wear sportcoats in business settings, a lot of walking around to different sites...

    Cowboy Boots

    Lucchese and Dan Post are solid with prices ranging from $250-$800 last time I stomped around the western shop. You can go way higher if you want - Texas Boot Co. has gator skins for $2k and higher.

    Suit or costume?

    Also a denizen of the legal world. Just a few thoughts, brother: Overall, the outfits look appropriate and classy, somewhat vintage in the boxier looser fit, especially the trousers and pleats. But pleats have never gone out of style and always add some class. It's a rangy, classic American...

    They were sold as "rose" trousers. We call it by the seashore Nantucket red. They do match well with color #8.

    The Official Alden Thread for 2024 - Share Reviews, Sizing, Advice, and Photos.

    Right. I tried to arrange a fitting at several stores in the (very broad NE/ NY) area and got nowhere. Ended up ordering them from Alden Shop San Francisco. They came in today - look and feel just right. Never sported such a fine boot before, they are tremendous. Heavy duty too. God bless the...

    Pulled the trigger on a pair of hard to find cordovan Indys, incoming next week. Happy New Year to all the Alden aficionados, you convinced me to join the club.

    The 2023 Allen Edmonds (AE) Appreciation Thread

    Wore the new bone-colored Strandmok Cap-toes on a recent trip; never heard more compliments over a pair of shoes, it was funny. Even some local tough guys liked them.

    Poor man's watch thread

    New to bronze watches but they're quickly becoming favorites. There are videos showing people speeding up the patina process with all kinds of wacky (to me) methods, but it happens quick enough here if you swim in the ocean. I do like that Omega! But the idea of resistant alloys defeats the...

    Poor man's watch thread

    hi watchpals, I don't clean bronze watches on any kind of schedule but wanted to start fresh with this one. This side by side contrast photo shows how a 2 minute vinegar bath removes the patina and brings back that warm coppery bronze. Happy I did it.

    Suede loafer Color choice, What after brown?

    Beige or Neutral look great in the spring / summer and match well with different colored pants.

    Looking for Budget Friendly Dress Shirt Recommendations (Building New Wardrobe)

    After dipping into the Spier & Mackay custom market (not happy with the fit after a few cleanings), I went back to the Milano line at Brooks Brothers. Usually get 2 shirts on sale for about $75-$115 per shirt. The fit is contemporary and slim without being too tight.

    Sizing loafers...

    I had the same issue with loafer buys. But I rate the risk of getting loafers too tight as worse than too loose. Meermin recommended buying a half-size down, which I ignored, thankfully. Wore them out of the box and 4 weeks later, they fit fine. Could try a shoe stretcher if you go small and...

    The 2023 Allen Edmonds (AE) Appreciation Thread

    Love to see that time-lapse. I should be OK though - they are in heavy rotation for the spring & summer, nothing like a light pair of bucks to spruce up your summer wardrobe. Then into deep hibernation in a winter closet.
