    ironically I was wearing G&G today.
    there was an impromptu snow blanket and i panicked.

    Oops, I didn't see the "over" part and thought you had just asked about a good brand for "shoes." I think one brand has been mentioned several times in this forum, but I don't remember the name since I generally switch to boots in bad weather.

    Thoughts on this
    coat? How do you think it will function as a goto rain coat? Good value?

    I'm looking for a white dress shirt that I can wear in more casual settings such as jeans, sweater, SC and no tie, but would also like to be able to wear it in dressier situations as well. Would a point collar or button down be a better choice? I just bought a J. Crew white dress shirt point collar and I'm not crazy about the collar, it lays kind of weird (flat) when layered with a sweater so I'm thinking of exchanging it. Any thoughts?

    I would say the Brooks Brothers pinpoint button down shirt (or OCBD) but my European brethren may not agree that button down collars are appropriate for "dressier" situations.

    Going a cruise next week. There are a couple "formal" nights. I plan on bringing a pair of sneakers and a pair of dress shoes. Out of these, which would you bring?
    C&J Bedford (black calf) AE Park Avenue (brown calf) C&J Boston (black calf) AE Player's Shoe (brown suede)​

    Need overshoes STAT. any Recommendations for a good brand?

    Swims. Pick them up online or at Brooks. There are also Tretorns, but they're less of an overshoe.

    What denim has a fit similar to the 501 STFs? I can't seem to find anything. Thanks.

    501s are a bit dumpy, so I can't think of any quality denims that are going to be cut like that. For slim but non-skinny denims try 3sixteens SL100x. You can also try APC New Standards. Both can be had for about $130 if you search for deals.

    There's also a denim thread on the SWD side of the board. You should ask them.

    I asked this before, but noone answered:
    I have a shirt that has the front buttons (2nd to 5th from the top) attached to a seperate stip of cloth, i.e. you button the buttons through both sides of the shirt.
    What's this for?
    thanks

    I think worsted wool fabrics look weird with jeans. You have to go with a courser material - cotton, tweed, linen.

    Plus, shorter jackets are better with jeans.

    If a jacket fits well in the shoulders but the chest is 2" too big in circumference, can a tailor fix it?

    It's so you can wear it with studs if you like. For formal wear.
