    I have a thrifted pair of fifth avenues and LOVE them. Great shoes.


    If it's a reasonably relaxed crowd, I can't see the harm.

    Topys can be good for traction or weird delicate soles that you want to take extra care of. Frye boots are meant to be worn and JFC they're shoes… of course the soles will get scratched and discolored. Carry on.

    Like I said...they're my first pair of boots with a leather sole. I don't know much about them, or a topy for them. I was more concerned about the scratched sole somehow preventing a topy from being added more so than the actual wear.

    But thanks anyway.

    I think everything matches well enough that it's OK. I'd wear it to a casual reception or the like.

    Yes. Way too much going on.

    I'm not a big blue on blue on blue on blue fan. But, even if there were some non-blue relief, that would still be quite busy. I think the most offensive part is the matchy-matchy tie and suspenders. I also don't think that shirt, with two pockets, lends itself well to a tie and suspenders. I don't have an issue with any of the pieces individually (I could see myself wearing each of them as parts of different outfits), but together they're a hot mess.

    I need some help on getting the right size for a leather jacket. I'm looking at a Schott bomber jacket and I'm confused on what size I should get. I've read a few times now that if I have a 44" chest I should get a 50" chest for a jacket. But that seems really big to me, but then again I'm a huge noob when it comes to all this. Any help on the subject would be much appreciated.

    My measurements are:
    Chest 44"
    Waist 36"
    Shoulders 21"
    Arms 25"

    I don't know if you need any measurements other than that. I'm looking at some vintage ones right now so I'm not placing an order to my size or anything and need to know which ones would fit well. Thank you for any help!

    Depends. Does part of your job involve you and a dozen or so co-workers climbing out of a tiny car?

    Anyone have any experience with Rag and Bone Classic Fit wool suit? I found a new one that fits well and quality seems really nice. It retails for like $1200 and this thing is about $200. I have no experience with Rag and Bone at all. I would never consider dropping this kind of money on a suit that wasn't custom or from something established in that space. But for the price... might be worth it.

    If my dress belt is too long for my waist and the end of the strap hangs in the air after the buckle, what can I do to secure the end and it keep it from hanging? Is there a clip that I can use that doesn't look noticeable?

    My dress slacks are a size 38 but when I began to put on weight the size 38 belt was uncomfortable to put on. When I changed to a size 40, there was extra space at the end.

    I'm going to a cocktail party, and am wondering if it is okay to wear a charcoal flannel suit.

    Thanks!

    Sounds a bit staid for a cocktail party.

    Probably not the most appropriate but probably also acceptable.

    I've recently bought a length of cloth which reads "Trisco Mohair" on the edge. I've done some search online and find no information about Trisco. What actually is Trisco?
