    What can you wear with Chino shorts from J. Crew.

    I'm in college so I still wear some nice flip flops but I was wondering about shoes.


    Wear boat shoes, or if you must, sneakers. There is no such thing as "nice flip flops".

    Any idea where Luke Pritchard got this t-shirt? Can someone tell me the brand or did he rip it himself?

    Have you tried Brooks Brothers?

    Nice enough wools and full canvassing. I think there's a sale this month of 40% off but don't quote me.

    Not sure if Paul Smith belongs on the Men's Clothing side, but is $267 a good price for a pair of his shoes? I don't remember in they are cap toe or more of a wing tip. Does anyone think I can get them cheaper? They're at my local Bloomingdales.

    Converse - OK
    Purcells - better
    Stan Smiths - best

    IMO of course, but flip flops should not be worn unless you are within fifty feet of a pool or beach. time to grow up.

    Just got a pair of Tod's Gommini loafers and wondering what the best suede protectant I should get to put on them. Anyone know which brand the group suggests to use, or any at all?
    And how should I care for these too? brush them every week or so? I've looked on all the how to stuff on youtube but nothing for these exact shoes.

    I am looking to buy fabric to have a suit made. I did some searching on here but couldn't find a answer. Could someone please tell me how much fabric you need to have a suit made?

    Thanks!

    Can someone tell me what is the situation with Malford of London? The site is closed and I can't access his thread here. I ordered a suit from him and he sent the wrong size, but now won't answed to my message.. I would just like to change it.

    I believe he posted to say he's closing up shop.

    That depends on your size and what you want made. I wear a 44R and my tailor said I needed 4 yards for a single breasted suit

    I think it looks good but I would get a brighter color tie though.

    Good luck!

    Don't worry about being too plain. Except for very few jobs (like fashion related ones), what you don't want is attention to be drawn toward your attire. So, for interview, plain is good.

    Not sure if Paul Smith belongs on the Men's Clothing side, but is $267 a good price for a pair of his shoes? I don't remember in they are cap toe or more of a wing tip. Does anyone think I can get them cheaper? They're at my local Bloomingdales.

    Paul Smith has some shoes made by Crockett & jones, those are nice, and $267 is reasonable. Paul Smith made in Italy however, is fashion forward, so $267 is fine if you really want them now, but in general you can do better.

    Should I buy these C&J Cavendish tassel loafers for £18 ?

    They have a peculiar mottled appearance, unexplained by seller, who thinks this is intentional and likes them like this.

    I am confused and although they are cheap ( he reduced them twice) worried that they might be in fact buggered, or the leather corrupted in some way.

    I quite like the look but it's not really smart.

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/CROCKETT-AND-J...item1c1c43093f

    Advice please. Ends in ca. 24 hours.

    Fit should be fine although never bought C&J before. I'm a UK9.5 in Cheaney & Church, and UK10 or EU44 in Vass, bought on eBay last year.
