    Those are pretty ugly, imo. If all you want is the slim, tuckback sole, they aren't that hard to find. It's just a Blake-stitch welt (Paul Smith comes to mind, but that's because I do love me some PS, and a number of others do the same). If you want that exact style, Prada is the brand that jumps out to me
    Thx. I wasn't crazy about this particular pair- too sneakerish- but I'm thankful for the technical term. Hopefully this will open things up for me. I hope Prada has something available beyond the ubiquitous hood sneaker at a reasonable price... any other brands?

    If you saw someone wearing a red harrington jacket, would you think they were trying to be James Dean?

    Do all "Coming Soon" jackets run large, or just some styles? I've got a 37" chest and am deciding between a 36 and 38.

    The couple that I've tried on didn't seem too large, but it is a Yohji brand (though it doesn't seem to be able to make up its mind over whether it wants to be drapey or not, pieces vary from individual to individual)

    Is there an oxford shirt thread? I'm looking for some good fitting oxfords and need some sources. The BB extra slim fit ones look decent. Open to other store and brands.

    Thanks

    Anything like Paul Smith York boots (brown leather) but with rubber/dainite sole?

    EDIT: nvm, PS Kasmin is what I'm looking for

    Hey guys,

    I am currently in Kuwait City, Kuwait. I am looking for some denim while I am out here. Any ideas as to where one might find a shop?

    I do, though its usually because the collar sits funny after being smashed up on the rack, and washing is the only way i've found that fixes it.

    dress shirts that come in packages, sometimes i can get away with just ironing out the creases across the front.

    Can anyone advise me on sneakers? I have big fairly big feet (I'm a UK size 12) and for that reason have been thinking of black sneakers. I would like to go with something brighter, but my reasons for wanting black are that it will stop my feet looking big, and will go with other colours more easily. I am on the lean side and tend to wear jeans that look fitted.

    Anyway, I have been thinking of Stan Smiths, but I don't know if the plain black ones are most commonly worn or look too bland; Adidas Dragons; Adidas Samba originals with the brown coloured sole, or Adidas Superstar (despite the bulky rubber bit at the toe). Any advice on this as I am willing to consider other brands / colours / styles as well?

    Basically I haven't a clue, but want something that is fashionable, doesn't make my feet look massive, and goes with any colour. As I say I would rather wear something brighter, but black seems easiest.

    Out of those, get the first ones. The less advertising that's plastered on your clothes, the better.

    What's the general opinion on Polo RL sweaters? Cut? Quality? I like a few of the fall sweaters they're starting to put out, mainly the colors.
    i have two: one in lambswool and a cotton one. IMO, they're mad boxy and a little short in the sleeves, but they're decent quality. I got the lambswool on sale for like 30 bucks, and it's one of my favorite beater sweaters.

    Is there an oxford shirt thread? I'm looking for some good fitting oxfords and need some sources. The BB extra slim fit ones look decent. Open to other store and brands.

    Thanks

    Search for the specific shirt you have a question on. I know the BB ESF shirts have a dedicated thread. Band of Outsiders makes a solid slim fitting shirt. I've been going MTM for mine lately. Cottonwork.com (who is an affiliate) has a few solid oxford cloth options for around 60 bucks. Mytailor.com also has a few good ones.
