thinking of buying these boots they are 210$
worth it? look nice on picture
I appreciate the exposure. If you are referring to the Algonquins, I think those are C&J.
Only if you're into the gangster look. Otherwise, a definite No.
nah im looking for something that is loose at the top
First post here.
I'm looking for a 3 button cardigan like in this combo here. Any ideas/suggestions. Am I even using the correct terminology?
^I think that's probably a vest, and looks like a unique piece from the designer. Certainly not a generic type of garment I've seen before. The one on top would be an irish fisherman's sweater in cardigan form.
Do you know where the picture came from?
Good pair of shoes.
Thanks for the reply, that's a shame.
It's in my lookbook folder. I'm pretty sure it originated from The Satorialist, though I can't find it now.
Edit: Found it:
Well I'm about to pull the trigger on some MTM shirts from modertailor.com. I have a shirt that fits me very well that can be used for the measurements. It seems that there is a gerneral consesus that measurung a well fitting shirt gives better results than body measurments. However, I did have a tailor take my measurements just in case. That being said, which option should I go with, shirt measurements or body?
Shirt and tweak it to your preference.
Cool. Thanks Yika.
I recently picked up a pair of light colored Olebar Brown setters. Of course, I'm a complete idiot and stained them the first time I wore them. Does anyone have any tips for removing grease stains from nylon/polyamide?
Take this with a grain of salt on account of my lack of experience, but I find the half windsor to be most versatile. Size wise, and also because of its symmetry. How wide the opening of the collar on your shirt and tie material seem to be the biggest deciding factors on knot selection.
I meant to respond to the original post... so new.
Hmm, looking at that in a larger size I'm not even convinced it's a knit. In fact, I'm pretty convinced it isn't- it looks like tweed to me. Vest, or maybe even an unstructured jacket, but wearing the sweater over it wouldn't seem to make much sense. More plausible than wearing two rough knits layered, anyway. Ever try to put a sweater on over a corduroy shirt? It would be impossible to actually put the second sweater on. Hard, but possible with a tweed jacket, though it wouldn't make much sense to me.
