    For those of you who have taken a pair of raws in to get them hemmed: did you keep the original hem or get a new one made? I just watched a couple of videos detailing both processes, and unless I misunderstood them, the only way to keep a solid Selvedge line in the final product is to construct a new hem. I really want to keep the selvedge id intact so that I can cuff the jeans, but I also think keeping the original hem would be dope. Any advice is appreciated.

    Just get a new hem. Keeping the original looks dumb. You'll still have the selvedge, the only difference is the type of stitch used to hem the jeans.
    I personally would prefer to buy shirts that fit off the rack rather than pay another ~$20+ per shirt to have them tailored. Uniqlo has broadcloth shirts that will be slimmer. Blue is safe, or white, or light grey.

    Does anyone know where I can get something like the J Crew plaque belt but in #8 or burgundy? I probably can't afford shell, just want something about 1" wide no holes.

    Thanks!

    Does anyone ever buy the converse shoes from buyconverseshoe.com??

    I'm trying to buy rare converse shoes and I found the website "buyconverseshoe.com" there are lots of converse with kinda cheap price. Do you think this is fake website or authentic? im so confused.

    Hi all,

    Right now I have a classic navy blazer that I wear year-round and a corduroy (brown) jacket I wear in the fall/early winter.
    I'm looking to get a summer blazer that will be versatile for business casual/dress.

    I like the sage blazer here: http://www.brooksbrothers.com/Fitzg...var_MM00344_Color=GREY&contentpos=1&cgid=0218

    Would you consider this versatile re: pant/shirt combos? I think the following would work well and these are items I already own:

    1. Khaki pants, white or blue shirt
    2. Navy pants, white shirt
    3. Stone pants, blue shirt

    As for shoes, my best guess is brown, especially a dark brown, would be best. I have a pair of chili AE Lasalle's but I don't think that works, thoughts?

    Thanks

    Just picked up a pair of BB chinos in British tan but don't know what to wear with that color. Any suggestions on shirt colors and patterns? Thanks!

    Anyone know what these measurements are on Lad Musician's site?

    MODEL:H188cm B86 W74 H90 SIZE 46

    Height obviously, then I'm assuming bust, waist and then I have no idea. I'm pretty sure I'm too big for Lad stuff but I'm still hoping there's some chance. The clothing measurements for 46 seem like they could fit but if that is indeed his chest (33inches) then there is no hope...

    Lol. Really? You have tan khaki's and can't figure out what to pair with?

    Those pants are pretty much the most versatile color...

    Brooks Brothers' "British tan" and their "Khaki" are two different pants. I own the Khaki too and, yes as you said, it goes with pretty much everything.

    I'm asking about the the "British tan" color. It is much different than their khaki. It has a yellowish/mustard tint to it. It might not show up quite as well in the link I pasted.

    No I know the color. It pairs with just about everything. I mean, I wouldn't wear it with black shirts, but it's a very versatile pair of pants.

    What do you think it wouldn't go with?

    I tried it with the 3 shirts below, but they looked odd to me. In full disclosure, I am new to fashion and am just building my wardrobe. My previous "style" was printed t-shirts, cheap jeans, and cargo shirts. Simply awful. I'm trying to focus on versatility within a business casual work environment that I'll also carry over to the weekend.

    Green version of this

    shirt 3

    Hard to tell without seeing them together, but I think all but the third would have worked. The third has the same color in the shirt as the pants. Looks funny.
