    In a fanny pack, of course.

    RTW or bespoke?

    Leather fanny pack, if you can find one.

    I personally like it, and the jeans (those are jeans, right?) give it a casual look. The shirt goes good with it as well. But I can see why people would perceive it as making you look "old" and professor-like. Not 100% sure about the fit.

    I just bought a 6 button, DB blazer on eaby, only to discover that the only real button hole (aside from the interior button) is the bottom. It looks utterly ridiculous when I buton just the inside button, yet I hate the look of having the bottom button closed.

    Has anyone here ever had a button-hole added, and if so, how much did it cost? Is this something tailors typically do?


    A buttonhole should be somewhere around $5-10. They are incredibly simple to do.


    I like this blazer a lot. It fits well enough. Just make sure you show some cuff and wear an interesting pocket square to keep you from looking too professor-ish.

    Are these Kurt Geiger boots Goodyear welted dyt?

    http://www.kurtgeiger.com/online-sho...-geiger-accona

    Thanks


    Most likely not. There's a thread somewhere that talks about how some companies claim they use goodyear welt, but actually don't. The shoes that actually are goodyear welted are always in the 500+ range.

    500+ range? You might be paying too much for shoes...are you familiar with Loake and Grenson and Sanders .....all Goodyear welted btw...

    any1 know the sizing for Uniqlo stuff from Hong Kong? I'm 5'7 - 5'8 140 lbs, usually wearing sz Medium AMERICAN.

    And I heard that the +J is different as well. So how do u size in +J and regular uniqlo stuff?

    I'm specifically looking at the sweaters and cardigans.

    Just dumped my wallet in exchange for a less bulky clip and a couple of cards combo, but the lack of an obvious place to put my condoms/condom holder when I go out is throwing me off.

    Where and how do you guys carry your condoms?

    Tucked under the strap of one of my sock garters.

    I get the idea that for barrel cuffs, the shirt sleeves should be long enough so that the front edge of the cuff kisses the first joint of your palm. But what about double cuffs (when folded up)?

    I ask because I've seen photos where the cuff seems to extend a bit further so that the cufflinks can be seen when wearing a jacket.

    Well, I don't buy really expensive shoes. I just buy AE at 40-50% off and will not venture into better shoes for awhile. I've heard that high end Grenson's are real goodyear welted, but haven't about the others. Its hard to believe what people claim these days so I'm not really sure about any brands except those really expensive ones.

    Two questions. What's a natural (or mostly natural) cologne product I can pick up at my local mall (e.g. Macy's)? I've heard "Creed" is good, but it seems to be available only online--or at least not in my area. Looking to buy a really inexpensive linen/linen blend sports coat to wear this summer. Macy's has the following sports coat in khaki on sale for $36. Alternatively, I could get this one from Old Navy. Sort of a stupid question, but if you had to choose between the two, which do you think would be of higher quality for the price, or which would you buy? (Notice that the latter is a linen/cotton blend. I've heard that some people prefer the blend to prevent wrinkling. Also, the latter seems to be center-vented; the former from Macy's is side-vented.)
