    Have any of you used your wives scarfs as pocket squares?

    I ask because my mother has a few hermes scarves that I like the design of and wouldn't mind using, she has a couple doubles that Im sure she would let me keep but im not sure if it would look weird.

    design wise it would not be a problem (unless we are talking uber feminine colors/designs). Your issue might be size, you can have someone like Kent Wang make you pocket squares out of it. You would probably get 4 or more squares or so out of a scarf an you can sell the 3 for a tidy profit.

    Frankie Lee - Yes, I like that. If it were in my size, country and price range (bearing in mind I spent most of the last two weeks wages last night) I would buy it.

    What can I wear a black tie to/with other than with a black suit at a funeral?

    Hey guys,

    What's a decent lint roller that you guys use (preferably one that can be purchased off of Amazon)? I don't need a fancy one -- just one that will get the job done. Will this Scotch one work?

    I've actually never used a lint roller before. It won't ruin a wool suit, right? :)

    navy suit/white shirt/black tie is a classic combo. you can do the same with a grey suit. you can change the shirt to blue etc etc. I am assuming you don't mean a black stain tie.



    not being snarky, but if you have a suit that needs a lint roller, the lint roller is not the issue.

    I'm actually wearing two Brooks Brothers suits in the Fitzgerald cut. They're certainly not the nicest suits, but I think they're passable for a college student. They're not Men's Warehouse suits or anything, if that's what you're wondering. :)

    The reason why I'm looking for one is because I tried to wipe some dirt off my suit pants with this microfiber cloth, and it ended up leaving a bunch of fibers clinging to my suit. I thought lint rollers were pretty common to use, but I guess not. Maybe I'll just pick them off by hand.

    I just started working out of college and I'm trying to build a business casual wardrobe without paying too much. I've bought some Charles Tyrwhitt shirts and think they look and fit nice. Now, I want to start upgrading my pants and shoes. Any suggestions keeping in my mind my budget is limited?

    I mean a silk tie like this (Googled it and it wants me to look for satin, typo?)

    looks like a silk twill, I'd wear it in the outfits I mentioned without any issues. Black ties don't get enough love.



    I like neither but would go with the bonobos/sebago if I had to.



    Yes, the player is one of AE's nicest shoes, if not the nicest and $200 is a good price. Size wise, the rule is if you drop a width, go up half a size so these might be a bit too long for you.

    It's Mens Wearhouse, not "Warehouse", there's nothing wrong with a lint roller, they're great for small fibers and dog hair, but you may want to check out a clothes brush as well.

    Looking for suggestions for white spread collar "beater" dress shirts... something you'd wear if there's a good chance you're going to spill, snag, rip, etc. and don't want to cry if you have to throw the shirt in the trash.
