    Hello all,

    I have been flirting with the idea of getting a suit made for some time now, and I have come across Made to Measure web sites such as Tailor4less.com, ITailor.com, & indochino.com. Has anyone used either one of these companies? What was your experience? Of the 3 which would you use.Also, I am interested in knowing if the quality is good as well as the legitimacy of the companies themselves. Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.

    Quick question:

    Dark grey slacks, navy sport coat, burgundy captoe shoes, and pink/light blue shirt....does this combo have any potential to work? Obviously this is a high level question, but if something along these lines will work, it would be very helpful to know.

    I fuckin hate spazzatura - the mark of a wanker.

    Take the tie to a seamstress and get it shortened. It might cost as much as $10.

    Could look smashing. I would go with the pink shirt, it ties in the red tones of the shoe. Without that tie in, the burgundy would look out of place in the charcoal and blues, unless you pulled it in some other way, with the stripe of a tie and a burgundy pocket square. However, a tie with a base color of burgundy is simply not working well for that in my mind's eye.

    If you wanted to wear the blue shirt, dark brown shoes. Or a different color pant- the burgundy would play off of something warm much better, say a khaki or a rich brown. But either of those radically changes the character of the outfit.

    As for tie, navy with red dots could be a good choice.

    Basically, pay attention to execution and trust your eye. If you use an unexpected color for the shoes, tie it back in somehow.

    Any one here ever heard of "dimitri" shoes?I'm seeing them pop up on ebay.They simply have the name and "made in italy' on the inside of the shoe.

    I've never heard of these at all and a search on here or google didn't turn up much either.

    Am I smokin' crack, or has the "Official Events and PSA thread" disappeared from the stickies at the top of the page?

    Looks to be. Grenadine comes in at least 2 weaves - grossa and fina, if I'm not mistaken. This would be the fina. The cognoscenti seem to prefer the former. Sam Hober makes the very best, and they'll run you about $100 with shipping. Grenadines tie a really nice knot, and you won't see yourself coming and going.

    Never heard of them, sorry.

    I have heard that "Made in Italy" is lately becoming code for "Made in China/Taiwan/India, but then imported into Italy where a final small touch is used to complete the product and allow us to call the product Made in Italy, even though it is not."

    First post here and I feel as if this is the right spot to ask.

    I'm looking to get a pair of round tortoise colored eyeglasses with thin frames. I don't know exactly where I should be looking to find a nice pair though. Could someone possibly point me in the direction of where to find an affordable pair? I'll have to be able to put prescription lenses in them.

    I recently bought a pair of salmon-colored chinos and wanted to know if they were seen more as S/S chinos rather than a pair that can be worn during A/W.
    Also, I have never bought a pair casual shoes such as derby's. What is a reasonable first purchase to start off with?
    Thanks in advance.

    I'm liking Warby Parker for this sort of thing these days. They'll send you a few pairs to try for free with no obligation too.
