    Any navy blazer feedback? Leaning toward the Paul Smith one at the moment.

    They're all decent, but somewhat overpriced (esp the Paul Smith imo). I recently found a Navy Corneliani SC for 400 and it's fully canvassed, like Belvest.

    I'd also consider Samuelsohn; they have great Navy SCs that can be found south of 400 on sale (and they're fully canvassed too).

    But if you had to pick one from your list, go with Belvest.

    I also have many pairs of BB's milano cut pants. Definitely an endorsement here too.

    Not sure if this is the right place to ask, but I found this picture in the gallery from SF's anniversary party and I really liked the cardigan the man in the middle is wearing.
    Especially the buttoning. Does anybody know what brand/model that cardigan is, and where one could find a similar one, if not the same one? (preferably on the internet, since I reside in Norway). Been wondering about this for days.

    Link to a bigger picture: http://www.styleforum.net/gallery/image/view/album/308972/id/377441/flat/1/sort/upload_time

    Thanks.

    The Dalton comes with a leather sole. The Fifth Street might work, but also has a leather sole. The Malvern might be an option, since it has a rubber sole, but It's a chukka boot...

    I haven't tried them, but there are websites for this, such as http://www.trunkclub.com/. I have been pleased learning more about style from this site and picking clothes myself.

    A woven edge rather than a cut edge on fabric, you usually hear it from jean fetishists.

    I'm sure this has been asked a thousand times, but I can't seem to find the answer.

    Mexican sombrero - pointed crown or smooth? It's for the office . . . .

    Isn't this a little like asking which color over-sized clown shoes to wear to a state funeral?

    For the trousers, it is more formal to use a metal hook or button on the top of the fly? And what do you guys think of those with metal hook with a strap of fabric covering it and secures with a button?
