    I'm looking for the shorts.

    I can't find them, so I don't think they are Adidas.

    So just search for Jeremy Scott stuff. I think Wayne was into his stuff seeing as to how he inspired the "Animal" Adidas and such.

    I'm wondering if anyone on here has any experience with Shades of Grey shirt sizing. Found a "slim-fit" offering of theirs online in size medium and I want to know if it would fit me. Usually I wear size small in Ralph Lauren/Rugy/JCrew/BB slim-fit oxfords.

    So anyone know what's up with this stuff?

    If not, check their return policy and order both sizes. Send the one back that doesn't fit. Alternatively, you could call them directly and ask.

    Might be worth a shot.

    It's a pretty tie. It should go with a dress shirt that has a white background and a tasteful pattern, such as light blue stripes or checks. Your dress code calls for a tie without a jacket? That is unfortunate, and lace-up dress shoes and trousers (not jeans) are about as specific as the advice that can be given now.

    I did, but couldn't find them.

    They look like Joyrich shorts, but again I couldn't find them.

    I've been searching for "leopard shorts" a lot too, but no luck :(

    Is a new BB Golden Fleece Madison a good deal at $499?

    Yes, assuming it's attractive. You can find better deals if you hunt and scavenge, but that's a good price on a nice suit, especially if you can walk in and try it on.

    Assuming it's not some weird color or pattern, it sounds like a good deal.

    Bear in mind, the Madison cut tends to be Brooks' more full cut and traditionally styled suit. It's what I prefer, but I believe most of the folks here on SF would prefer a more modern, slim-fitting suits, like the Fitzgerald.

    Hello I just joined because you guys seem to know your stuff. I just got hired as a full time employee at my University (was previously a student) and have been trying to update my wardrobe to dress nicely and appropriately.

    I have been wearing mostly Polo Ralph Lauren dress shirts and oxfords but have been recently looking at Ruby Ralph Lauren but have no experience with any of their items. I am wondering if Rugby Ralph Luaren shirts such as this one: http://www.rugby.com/shop/item.aspx?productId=12322599&categoryId=3940586&cp=3870663 are slimmer fitting than PRL custom fit oxfords? I want a slimmer look as I feel PRL shirts are a little big on me (especially classic fit.)

    I am 5'9, 140 lbs. Thank you for any and all advice.

    Hi guys, could anybody shed some light on the world of Chinese Faux-Italiano brands? My current understanding is that many of them come from the same factory, just with different names (sometimes more than one per suit) tacked on.
    Browsing past threads, I've gathered that
    Joseph Bach=Abito Sartoriale=Luciano Bardelli=Mattazari Uomo=Marco Valentino

    Can anybody confirm this relation?
    I'm asking because I recently purchased a "Luciano Bardelli" blazer for $340 thinking it was essentially the same as a "Marco Valentino" which based on some of the feedback on these boards, is considered to be a decent quality, entry-level make. It's navy and 100% wool with a half Canvass, fits me quite well and appears to be of good quality. Should I keep it as sort of a "beginner's blazer" or should I attempt to return it tomorrow.

    I ended up buying it because I couldn't really find a better deal in NYC (probably doin' it wrong; my inexperience is showing), and the next best thing I came across was a Versace sport coat for [email protected] Saks, and that thing was fused and 65% polyester.

    (Also, it says that the fabric is by Marzotto)

    I recently bought a shoe care kit and it came with shoe cream in black and brown. Are any of the ingredients dangerous to the health of my shoes? Or is it the standard stuff:

    Aliphatic hydrocarbon, light aromatic solvent naphta, diethylene glycol

    They had Fitzgeralds as well, which I ended up preferring. Had a large selection off sizes and styles, so I didn't feel rushed to make a buy. I may go back tomorrow.
