    Anybody know if Billy Reid suits are canvassed, half, or fused? In general vs. on gilt? Gilt is selling some made in Italy ones for cheap. Thanks!

    Has anyone ever brought replica designer shirts? If so, what did you think? And, where did you buy them from?

    Thanks.

    Ebay has Thomas Pink shirts for 25 bucks. Please don't buy them. Either save up or look for something cheaper, yet still decent quality.

    Hello gentlemen,so I'm thinking about this RLPL Silk 3piece suit,i like it,and if that was a blazer i wouldn't hesitate but i'm not sure about suit,I'm 19 and i like and wear a lot of clothing that is considered "old men's" nowadays,including brass button,double breasted blazers but I'm not sure this will look good on me,i think about pimpin' it a little bit with a colorful PS,tie.So what do you think about this suit for someone my age?and also what about 100% silk suits?I've neither owned nor seen one,only blends,what do they look,feel like?Also as i see pants on this suit are no-belt or how are they called,is there a way to convert them to normal type i.e. for belt?

    Is it possible to get a shirt let in on the sides and have the arms slimmed down? Will this cause problems with other parts of the shirt? and How much would that normally cost?

    You want to look your best, yet you're planning on wearing a "black suit with jeans"? To say nothing of the discomfort of wearing two pairs of trousers at the same time, way to aim low. [​IMG]

    All kidding aside, with what you're planning on wearing, the definite way to go would be a white dress shirt with black dress belt and dress shoes. They'll clash with the jeans, of course; it would be far better to swap them out for wool dress slacks, perhaps in a mid-grey to offset the stark severity of a black sportcoat.

    The ideal option for a prom, of course, is a tuxedo (which is always black with a black bow tie; not the multi-colored costumes they rent out nowadays), but if that's not doable, I'd say at least wear a dark suit (but not black) with a white shirt and a nice necktie. (As prom is a party, you can opt for a more whimsical tie than the ones favored around here, as long as it isn't kitschy or in poor taste. A paisley or a Hermès-type pattern would really come into its own.) Handkerchief in the pocket is optional as long as you're wearing a boutonnière, but it does add a bit of panache.

    I already own a pair of AEs Park Avenue and some other formal shoes, but I wanted something I can wear with jeans. I was thinking about these shoes which can be had for $155. I'm 23 btw.

    Opinions?

    Will they score you the love of a woman (or man if you are into that kind of thing....nothing wrong with it, of course....)?

    The logo is kinda tiny, can you find a pair with bigger logo?

    I am going to say no. Personally, I don't like bit loafers, so I'm not much help there.

    Second, they appear to be black and I don't like black shoes with jeans.

    I would recommend a blucher in in the dark tan to brown range. Plain toe or wingtip preferred, perhaps a cap toe if there is enough perf and pinking.

    Just my opinion, take it for what it's worth (not much).

    Chris
