Would anyone care to help me on this?
hello, could someone tell me what's name for tie color on this picture? - http://www.forever21.com/UK/Product...tegory=m_sale&ProductID=2000023485&VariantID=
Just spend literally 35 seconds and you can find this:
My girlfriend, and soon to be wife, doesn't think the PS and the tie is a good combo. I would love your opinions on this.
(The colors are a bit off, the blazer is navy and the PS is pink with blue dots, the color of the tie is fairly accurate with dark and light blue stripes)
Most online retailers that are not considered luxury will sell what they claim to be pure silk ties for under $50. However, what you want to look for are detail specifications that ensure that the tipping (triangular portion on the back of the tie at the bottom) is also pure silk, as these can often be made with polyester. Additionally, you want to see if the interlining of the tie is woolen or a double layer that is one layer cotton and one layer woolen. Most ties that are $20-$30 in the market and are sold as '100% pure silk' refer to the body of the tie, not the tipping. Also, these ties are usually interlined with polyester, and often not with a double layer of cotton or wool (which help maintain the shape of the tie and ultimately result in a better knot). If you can find a retailer out there that is selling silk ties for under $50 with strong interlining and strong tipping, you've found yourself a good deal.
If you can't get those specifications, then you shouldn't be spending anymore than $30 max, and ideally around $20.
I travel to main fashion streets all over the world I really appreciate men's clothing.
I would like to ask if I can hire someone choose me my wardrobe and help me with new clothing and style so is it possible to get someone like that and do it within a budget.
X-Post from BB sale thread but more traffic here and more relevant here:
I'm still having navy blazer dilemmas. Narrowed it down to these:
If anyone can provide some feedback that would be a big help. They're all within my budget so I'm really just looking to hear which one would be the best fit and quality for a navy blazer that I can wear around an office that is mostly business casual (only Senior VP's wear suits daily).
Edit: I guess the links got chopped? The 2 BB's I posted at the Fitzgerald blazer in navy and the 1818 blazer in navy.
This one would be a slight budget stretch but it's manageable: http://www.parkandbond.com/product/112524204
There are a few image/style consultants on here, though I personally find the idea preposterous.
Use this forum as your fashion consultant. Try things on in stores, take pics, post pics, get feedback. Repeat until you have knowledge.
And that's free.
+1 . Before I came on here it was always about the name of the brand, now I've discovered smaller companies like Kent Wang, Howard Yount and many more. Most people on here want/try to help with questions you have and I hate to say it..but they're brutally honest but that's how I've been learning.
Does anybody know where I can buy bulk gemming?
I'm looking for some slim trousers in khaki/navy at around $100 a pair. Any suggestions?
Buy two pairs of Brooks Brothers Milano cut.
I endorse this post.
I posted this in the Allen Edmonds thread, but thought it may get more exposure here. Thanks in advance!
I've been going back and forth on what boots to get......the wife and I are going to Europe over late December/early January and I want a boot that could take some rain/sleet during the day yet still be able to wear them to dinner that night with a nice sweater or sport coat. I was thinking possibly the chocolate calf Dalton with the rubber sole. Any thoughts or recommendations? Thanks!
