    Any opinions on these shoes? They are Eduardo G. captoes on sale for 165.00 and appear to be a good deal.

    I'd like to know what SF thinks of this jacket for spring and summer wear:

    Regent Fit Soft Jacket in Navy, in cotton

    Nii's list of essentials brought it to my attention. The price is very low and I assume that Brooks Brothers isn't bad quality (maybe that is a bad assumtion). I'd love to hear your thoughts. It would be my first light-weight jacket and therefore probably the only thing I could wear comfortably in the very hot Japanese summer.


    Can someone answer to this question? I'm also considering in buying this blazer

    Thanks

    I read this thread earlier today. There are 6 pages with a lot of good advice on shoe care and shoe care products.

    Looking for some hawk eyes to ID these shoes. The boat chukka is driving me mad - i've seen 4 or 5 people wearing them but can't find them anywhere.

    Any ID's get huge respect as these have defeated me.

    In fact, I don't know what to buy for a classic sportcoat between those two:

    - Brooks Brothers Regent Fit Soft Jacket (Pure cotton)

    - Bonobos The Alma Mater blazer (Textured Wool-Cashmere)

    Which one is the best for this spring-summer?


    Brooks is generally decent quality and style, particularly if you get a good price. At least in the picture, that jacket looks fine. You should try it on if you have the chance. I agree with Larson McCord, the bonobos jacket is ridiculously short. It also has too high button stance for my taste.

    I'm a small guy (5'7", 120lbs, 34" chest) and I'm looking to buy a new suit. Can anyone suggest lines that might have something off the rack before I start getting involved in MTM?

    Thanks.

    Any suggestions for a simple leather coin pouch? I know in the US you may not have much use for them but here in Canada we have $2, $1, $.25, $.10., $.05, and $.01 coins. I usually dont bother carrying anything smaller than $.25 coins but it would be nice to keep all my change in its own place in my front pocket. I dont like wallets with coin pouches built in sinc they feel too large. Any suggestions?

    Yup those are the ones. I'm not really a fan myself so can't offer much more in the way of advice/experience, just noticed the polo ones in the catalogue. They have some nice shoes in there.

    Anyone know any stores in Toronto that sell the Barbour Liddesdale jacket? I would like to try one on before I buy it but I cant seem to find any stores that sell them.
