    You´re sure? I checked both- they do look quite alike. Well, anyway still trying to figure out the denim shirt. Any clues on that?
    Cheers!

    Many sunglasses (or glasses of any kind) tend to have unlevelled arms because of wear, tear or transport! You can adjust them by carefully bending ist to customize the fit to your head. but be careful: the cheaper ones can easily break. For the same look but with a bit more quality opt for the randolph engineering ones.

    My RE ones are great. I have gold with brown polarized lenses. I recently cracked one of the lenses and mailed them to RE and they replaced and sent them back for no charge. Don't know if this is the norm though.

    Quick question regarding cloth.
    I saw two images of Zegna cloth from their 2015 spring/summer collection that I liked very much. (numbers 62001 and 62006)
    I have been told Zegna is sold out in Italy and that the wholesaler in the US has none left.
    How does one go about finding a fabric if the factory is sold out? Is it possible? I am looking for 2.5 meters of each...
    How do I ensure that I get to see--on line preferred--images of the limited run cloth from my favorite designers?

    Many thanks,
    Andrew

    I personally wouldn't with a formal double breasted, but these will work with a suit like linen.

    Fred Astaire and his grey flannel double-breasteds beg to differ.

    I wouldn't do it with a worsted DB, though.

    That's what I meant by formal.

    Gentlemen,

    I'd like to solicit your opinion regarding a CARUSO Sportcoat I've just picked up. Trying to make up my mind if I should keep it or not.

    The fit is terrific as one can expect from Caruso. The material is 55% silk and 45% wool and the cloth has a houndstooth pattern (pied-de-poule).

    Because of the silk in the material, it shines a bit. Not a lot but it still shines; which can be expected from a silk wool blend.

    I'm just wondering if it looks too sleazy because of the silk shine? And no, I'm not a lounge singer. I just want to wear it in the evenings with beige or khaki chinos.

    Any feedback would be highly appreciated!

    I thrifted this Brioni polo. It says xl but is tiny on me. Is it fake or do they just make really small sizes in Europe?[​IMG]

    Guys, are there any tie colors that don't go with a charcoal suit?

    2nd question: I'm going to wear an end-on-end dress shirt very close in color to this:

    Requesting suggestions for tie colors.

    Does anyone have a source for well-made (and preferably OTC) discreetly-patterned socks? I'm looking for something along the lines of tasteful clocking or a herringbone pattern, that would wear will with worsted wool or flannel odd trousers.

    I'm a 9E in AE's 65 last (Park Ave). I need to buy some black cap toe Balmorals, but I'm not sure what other brands I should look for because of my flat arch. Should I just grab the Park Ave or are there other lasts by other brands I should look for that are known to be equivalent to that size?

    I'd really like to grab something from the classifieds here that are higher quality, but without being able to try them on, I don't want to get stuck with something that doesn't fit.

    In that case, I'd say go with navy blue solid if you've got one. White square. Solid black tie would be fine as well. Wouldn't stray too far form the solid, somber colors though.

    Got it. It may be a bit more lax than that. I also have Navy with cream polka dot, solid burgundy wool, solid brown wool, midnight navy with red polka dots.

    I'm going to change into a white shirt in the evening and wear a houndstooth tie. Do blue shirts pair poorly with black/white houndstooth ties?

    What's the diff in nomenclature of these two patterns?

    One is houndstooth but what's the other one?
