    The besom pockets look kinda sagging to me.

    It may be just the way it's hanging. I'll take a look at it again.

    Congrats on your wedding! I'd definitely go with the pocket watch, especially if it has sentimental meaning to you. I also vote for the tortoiseshell glasses . Regarding buttoning, that's a tough call. I'd unbutton when sitting, but when standing - hmmm...

    Brooks Brothers Milano is SF Approved.

    Do they sell the dress trousers in separates? I'm only seeing the Milano cut in the casual pants.

    I recently bought a pair of boots in a tan/light brown grainy leather. I wanted something a little more chocolatey in color but I couldnt find the shoe I wanted so I have these now. What is the best way to darken them? To what extent is using darker shoe polish on them (dark brown or cherry or even black) to darken them with time useful? Has anyone done this? What are the results? Thanks

    This fits great, but I am unsure if it's dated or ratty looking. Thoughts?

    4x1 has a dated vibe to it due to overuse in the 1980s, but with peak lapels, you might be able to get away with it. Looks like the V is fairly high, which is good for a DB jacket.

    I recently bought a 40L Zegna tux thinking that it was a 40R. How much would it screw up the proportions of the tux to have a tailor shorten it by 1" to 1.5"?

    From what I've read, 1" is about the most you can usually take off of a jacket. With a long, you might be able to get away with more though.

    Great link!

    Anyone have any thoughts on where these [dog pants] might be appropriate other than the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show? Even there?



    Sure, on halloween.

    I never liked these kind of 'decal' trousers, Ralph Lauren has similar ones, they attract too much attention to the legs; if you wear them for something other than house painting, treat them like Spiderman underwear and never let female eyes gaze upon them, lest your genetic code die out this generation . . .

    Party in the Hamptons, Martha's Vineyard, etc., or any other leisure activity where the people around you understand the go-to-hell pants. To a live episode taping of one of Jesse Thorn's shows.

    It's pretty simple. Darker shoe polish on lighter shoes = darker shoes.

    I found a white Lacoste polo for $23 out the door after various sales and coupons I have. Should I cop? I'm not sure how I'd wear a white polo.
