    Just two posts above yours, Winston S. provided a link to the SF Shoe Care thread. I'm confident you can find comprehensive answers to your questions regarding product selection there.

    That's pretty awful. A shiny cheap plastic (poly/rayon) suit in a metallic color. Maybe if you just want to wear it to clubs, but otherwise kill it with fire.

    I know this is my first post, but I would appreciate some quick assessment on whether this blazer fits or not. Thanks in advance :)

    You're going to have to either settle for "close enough" plus a good tailor, or go MTM/custom made. That's one of the negatives of having anything much beyond an 8" drop, you're way at the twilight zone of the bell curve and mall clothes just aren't designed with you in mind.

    Anyone have experiance with Rick's Kansas City suits. At $499, it might actually be a better deal than BB's 2x$?? deal. Think I might go grab a couple suits from there if I head good things.

    Congrats on losing weight! Obviously it's a personal choice whether it's over the top, but since you're soliciting opinions I can tell you that it's over the top for anyone. As it was already said, it's made of plastic and looks that way. Synthetics like that might be great for space travel, but not dinner or work. Take a look around here and you'll see plenty of "over the top" done both very right and very wrong. If you're unsure of whether it falls into the "right" or "wrong" categtory, just read the comments associated with it, you'll soon get a group consensus. Good luck!

    We seem to be awash in the $500 suits lately. Rick's, Suit Supply and the Benjamin suit. Not sure how any of the three compare with BB or each other, but worth looking into.

    Trying to figure out what to pair a cream colored linen blazer with other than dark jeans. Suggested color slacks/shirt?
