    I haven't been into clothes until this year. I started going shopping at lot at the mall and a lot of the times, I go to a bunch of stores but don't buy anything. The workers at each shop sort of follow me around helping me out and waiting outside the fitting room while I try things on so I feel really bad when I don't end up buying anything from them...

    My question is, do these people get paid commission based on what they sell? I don't want to have people wasting their time on me.

    The stores I'm concerned about in particular are Club Monaco and Nordstrom.

    So in preparation of a suit/sport coat that should be finished sometime this week and arrive next week, I want to ask some questions regarding caring for it.

    Any reason to avoid a synthetic clothes brush? I will consider a Kent brush when I see one being sold as a second because I'll have to factor in international shipping.
    Locally I can either get a brush with a name at 2-3x the normal price, or a no named one at about 2-5 USD. The problem is I'm worried about the quality in China and since I have no experience with bristle I wonder if I might end up unintentionally buying synthetic anyway.

    When it comes to hanging a 3 piece suit, does the vest go with the jacket on the hanger or on it's own separate hanger? My closet space is limited. How does felt keep the trousers from wrinkling anyway? I can't get nice hangers here but I could try buying some felt material and sewing it around the bar if it's worth the trouble.

    Do bags with straps cause damage to the padding in a jacket? Is it better to get a new bag with a handle or am I over thinking this?

    What are some good brands/retail sites for flannels? Top range of $150-$200 but below that would be fantastic, thanks!

    If you are looking for a good weight, American made flannel shirt, I suggest Vermont Flannel. Their shirts are warm and last forever. Bills Khakis and Gitman also offer some lighter weight flannels in season.

    If you're looking for something more traditional, LL Bean is the best bang for your buck-- can't beat a lifetime warranty.

    Thanks for the suggestions!

    If I were after something a little more contemporary (i.e. Band of Outsiders-esque) what would be some good options?

    Hi guys :)

    Was wondering if anyone could give me a hand on OCBD advice. I've been out of the loop basically so I missed out on getting a TOJ OCBD v2. I really liked the deep dish buttons and the other little design details paired with the slim fit.

    I was wondering if there's anything comparable or the closest I could get on the market atm?

    Cheers!

    Hi, any suggestions for a pair of boots which look and fit like the old Vanishing Elephant Figler Military Boots. I'm having a ton of trouble finding a pair similar, and tired of wasting money on boots I wear once. I wish vanishing elephant would just reintroduce them.

    thanks
