    Don't even think about dark shirts if you're ever going to be wearing them with a tie. Just a bad idea unless you have a damn good idea of what you're doing.

    French blue is a nice color though. An ecru (light tan) would be good. Striped oxfords and the like can be fun.


    So to sum up the advice. Shades of blue, white or ecru and patterns thereof are ok. Everything else is no good for now? Thanks.

    CREPE WEDGE SOLES: Where to Buy?

    I'm looking to put a crepe wedge sole a la sanders/mark mcnairy/yuketen on a pair of goodyear welted brown loafers i have, but i have no idea where to source them from. I'm not looking for the dark alden crepe, but for the light tan crepe that the above companies use. thoughts?

    I really want a brown shoe (or at least something that comes close) and I've been eyeing this baby for a while.

    I already own a pair of black Lombards and a pair of the chili randolphs so would the lubbock be a good addition to my shoe collection? My other shoes are a pair of Billy Reid boots and a pair beat up pair of Jack Purcells.

    Your humble n00b,

    Hi everyone,

    I am currently in Madrid for the summer and saw a shoe brand named Lorenzo Márquez y Gloria Castellano. http://www.zapatoslg.com/Html/princi...oductosIzq.asp

    I was wondering if anyone knew anything about their shoes in regards to quality, fit, etc. Also, if anyone knows any cool shoe stores in Madrid I would greatly appreciate it.

    Hello SFers Can anyone recommend me a nice navy cotton/chino suit? I have a wedding to go to in a about a month and a half and I was looking to wear something other than wool. (I've been scouting BS, but nothing for a 40R) The only one I can find that is easily accessible is this JCrew suit one, but if anyone else has some other input it would be greatly appreciated. I looking for a slim/trim look but on the timeless side, so not something with razor thin lapels that is more of a fashion type look. I also looked at indochino, but I cant find Navy cotton option. Price range would be around the Jcrew one I guess (400ish) Thanks in advance guys!

    I just came across this: Also, Hyperion seems like an interesting brand, anyone have any experience with it?

    Quelque'un? There is absolutely no information to be found about this brand. Is it at all obtainable i Europe?

    I just got a new suit, and the pants are a few inches too large in the waist. There's also some bunching in the crotch. If I get the waist taken in, should it take care of the crotch issue?

    When you bring them to your tailor, I might ask them if they can do anything about the bunching up issue on its own, independent of taking in the waist.

    Belt loops are wearing out on my suit pants - I am going to have to get them fixed. That said is there anything I can do to avoid wear going forward? Note I sit on my ass all day for work.

    Does anyone own this Gitman Japanese organic shirt? I would really love to get my hands on the blue version, shown below, in a size small. Not feeling the other colour combos as much.
    If someone knows where I can find a shop carrying one (besides woodwood) please PM me. I really would appreciate it, thanks. I would also be open to buying one used if someone would be willing to part with theirs.

    Other colors are fine too, just keep them light. But stuff like pinks, yellow and green can be a little more touchy with skintone than blue, white or tans, and are more uncommon in general, so they don't often make a list of basics.
    My question is related with footwear. As we all know that Reebok has introduced new ReeZig shoes a couple of months ago in the Asian Market. Which colour combination will suite teenage boys more?
    May I recommend shoes with a design not based off of quackery and styled for clowns? You're asking on Styleforum. Feel free to give reebok money if you want, but there's no way to make those shoes look good. Hypermodern trainers seem like they're designed to look as ridiculous as possible, because them look over-designed, thus signaling to consumers how awesome and scientific they are, when they really just consist of a sheet of cardboard for the insole, a sheet of thin foam for the footbed, and rubber and foam bits glued in an interesting shape, maybe along with some hard plastic as an outsole. Made in china for 2 bucks and sold for $89.95.
