    Sneakers With Tailoring: Yes, No, Maybe?

    This nice way to dress down a formal outfit. Little concerned, though, about some collar gap.

    Unfunded Liabilities: a/k/a The Cloth Thread

    In Milan I enjoyed visiting Il Vecchio Drappiere (https://ilvecchiodrappiere.com/en/). Really a huge selection, including some lovely vintage fabrics, and a very pleasant and helpful staff (that seemed like family). Cool display of W Bill fabrics in the window, when I was there a couple years...

    Unfunded Liabilities: a/k/a The Cloth Thread

    Any recommendations for fabric shops to visit on a day free in London? Would be particularly interested in flannels, tweeds, cavalry twill and the like, and any linens on the (very) heavy side. Many thanks if you can help!

    Worsted flannel pants and woolen flannel jacket?

    I hate to burst your bubble, but that man is wearing oxford shoes.

    The Oxford-Shoe-Worn-Casually Appreciation Thread

    I'm trying to explain to you where the nuance is in our discussion. But you are not open to nuance. Your world is much easier if you divide your wardrobe into two buckets, suits and non-suits, and put the oxfords in the first bucket (because they are oxfords, not because of anything nuanced...

    The Oxford-Shoe-Worn-Casually Appreciation Thread

    Of course I have read the whole guide, multiple times. (It's sorta how I know what's in it.) My reason for bringing it up in the first place was to point out how the guide focuses on (sensible) principles such as 'city with city' and 'country with country' that can help us understand which shoes...

    The Oxford-Shoe-Worn-Casually Appreciation Thread

    It wasn't really meant as a jab, even a tongue in cheek one, but I do think it would be funny if there were some kernel of truth to it. I assume you grabbed those from a number of...how do we say it in these threads? "less offensive," is it?...options. But to the broader point I was trying to...

    I didn't highlight the word. He did. I quoted his passage as it is. And while I appreciate your resourcefulness, I know what urbane means. Here's the part I would have called your attention to, if I didn't think it was already obvious given the context (you know, of what I said he seemed to say...

    I'm not terribly familiar with how IG works. Does the explore tab not take into consideration your past preferences? ;)

    The Oxford-Shoe-Worn-Casually Appreciation Thread

    Well, I do. Or at least I do in a case like this, where we are talking about what are essentially matters of opinion. Otherwise I think it's a pointless rule and there's no sense talking about it unless it's to be pedantic. When the opinion polls are telling you you've got ten percent support, I...

    The Oxford-Shoe-Worn-Casually Appreciation Thread

    I'm curious what the "danger" is. I'm assuming that by "learning to dress through IG," what you mean is something along the lines of mimicking what people these days are wearing in large numbers, buying products that are presently being sold, etc. In other words, not finding the brightest, most...

    The Oxford-Shoe-Worn-Casually Appreciation Thread

    Here's one thing I remain a little confused about, @Jmr928. This is not CM: It's not at all CM. It's not pretending to be CM. It's not even trying to be CM. What I'm confused about is why there is some debate about applying CM rules to outfits that are not CM. I mean, the best I can take...

    The Oxford-Shoe-Worn-Casually Appreciation Thread

    I'm questioning whether it really and truly is a broadly held principle. It was not one that I recall learning when I grew up. The principles I was taught were more along the lines of 'formal with formal, casual with casual', but that had more to do with form/color/material than with category...

    The Tailors' Thread: Fit Feedback and Alteration Suggestions

    I'm assuming somewhere around 22" across is what you'd normally like? I'd say it might be worth a shot, but it depends on a number of things. One is how much you're willing to gamble on the experiment, assuming you have other options (return it, not buy it in the first place, readily find...

    The Oxford-Shoe-Worn-Casually Appreciation Thread

    I don't think we have any disagreement. That is precisely my view. That is to say, that some oxfords go acceptably well with some non-suit outfits, and for good reason. My point about this as a normative rule of thumb -- the rule being that oxfords are categorically unacceptable worn casually...

    The Tailors' Thread: Fit Feedback and Alteration Suggestions

    Do you mean that it measures 23.5" from pit to pit, and that your chest measures 40.5? How are the shoulders? Are they where you normally like them? A little extended? This could be a bigger issue than the chest, assuming the chest can feasibly be done.

    The Oxford-Shoe-Worn-Casually Appreciation Thread

    Well, I wanted to believe that this was true. Or, I gave it every chance to be true. But then I started looking around to see if the rule was in widespread use today, and the 'data' just simply does not support the hypothesis. I mean, it just doesn't, and I don't know what else to say. Plenty of...

    The Oxford-Shoe-Worn-Casually Appreciation Thread

    Well, yeah, but that was my point. In other words, that there might be some personal inclination on his part away from oxfords no matter what he is wearing, and not because he has no choice. I'd imagine, rather, that it's because they would feel more formal than he typically wants or needs to...
