    The problem is that you bought a gaudy brandwhore belt not because it looks good, but because it screams how much money you paid for said overpriced belt.

    You don't know me or what I paid for the belt so how can you say that? I got an incredible deal on it so I have it, and I came on here where I thought I could get some recommendations. Dont see any issues.

    Two questions:

    (1) Thinking of having a suit made in either navy or black. Where can I purchase good light weight
    fabric in south Florida that will not break my pocket?

    (2) Has anyone here ever purchased a suit from ITailor.com or indochino.com? I am interested
    in knowing how was the quality of the work done by both companies.

    Okay, so you didn't spend excessive amounts of money on it. But that does not change the fact that you are in possession of a belt that, no matter how it's worn, screams "I'm a brandwhore!".

    There's a whole thread dedicated to Indochino.

    what can i wear the orange side of my hermes belt with? i have the blk/orange with the hold H. cant think of many combinations of colours that could pull it off

    Think basic colors - navy jacket or shirt, white or tan pants. It's a pretty bold look by itself, so eveything else will need to be subdued.

    It seems you do it wrong.

    You pick your suit, then pick your shoes, then pick your belt. Not picking your belt and then trying to see how to match things with it. If you do the later part, that means the belt with the logo is the central point of focus of your attire. In that case, it seems rather silly.


    Any overpriced fashion label should be fine. Remember, it's not how it looks on you; it's how much it costs that matters.

    Kid bought an orange belt with a big logo. He asked 'what does it go with?'. He didn't ask to play brand association with your neuroses. Have some manners and or get back on your meds. He has his own problems to deal with. Seriously, would Spoo have come so far if he'd had to deal with you asswipes when he first got here?

    What? Reread the discussion. He asked 2 questions. The first question was on the belt, I didn't give any answer. The second question was on what the problem with the first question is. And I answer this question. This is a Q&A thread and I did exactly that.

    Where's the best place to cop Johnstons cashmere scarves ? With regards to sales and variety. Free international shipping would be better!

    I'm looking at this site here now - http://www.highlandstore.com/acatalo...e_Scarves.html


    Ebay. I've got one incoming to my house (monday probably) that I got for a mere 3£ (4£ postage), 100% cashmere, nice colours. They're out of season at the moment, along with gloves, so they can be had for no moniieees at all.

    How exactly should you measure your sleeve for a shirt order?

    I know you start from your spinal column, straight across the shoulder/back, and then down the arm.

    However, some websites/videos state that bend your arm at a 70degree angle, and measure over the elbow, while others say to keep your arm by your side and relaxed.

    Also, do you stop at the wristbone, heel of hand or the 'V' where thumb and index finger meet?

    I need a definitive answer.

    How is this suit? Are the lapels of this suit too wide?

    Could it be still be worn normally or is it dated?

    Thanks


    Looks pretty old, shoulders are very built up IMO. Obviously would look better with a regular suiting outfit with it.
