    Could anyone tell me what the pattern on this fabric is called? Scale seems too big to be called a glen plaid. (Sorry photo is sideways, couldn't figure out how to rotate it.)

    Who makes Allen Edmonds italian collection, specifically the Verona bit loafer? I want to say that I read somewhere that they are made in the Bruno Magli factory. Previous threads did not comment on this specifically.

    kinda related to this question -
    when it comes time to resole the verona loafers (or any of the other italian made AE's)
    since they won't do it through the AE factory
    where can i take them?
    should i be seeking out a specialist or a particular store? or can any competent cobbler resole them?

    Hey all, I'm looking for the best slim-fitting flat-front wool pants I can get for my money (plan to pair with blazer), I'm looking to spend $50-70. I know epaulet and bonobos are decent but they're a bit more than I'd like to spend. BB appears to be my best choice but I was wondering if there's anything for a bit less money (land's end?). I understand that that's not very high for a good pair of wool pants but I'd appreciate any advice you could give me. Thrifting/ebay isn't really an option. Thanks

    Have you looked at H&M or Zara at all?

    These, for example:

    What is SF's opinions on wearing club collar shirts both casually and more dressed up?

    No problem. I actually want them for myself now, too. :)

    Does anyone have a good source for pant clamp hangers, ideally with finished wood? I'm considering this but there's some bad reviews of Honey Can Do's products on the web. I don't want to pay the premium for Hanger Project hangers.

    I use the ones from target. They are cheap and work fine.

    Also, these are great. I never tried their pant hangers, but their suit hangers are perfectly fine.

    AE website lists them as re-craftable.

    I'm looking for a cap toe lace-up boot to go with businesss casual wear. Though they could not be more different and probably should not be used in the same sentence, I've lked tthe RedWing Iron Rangers and the Peal Cordovan Boots. I looked at the Alden Cordovvan boots but the leather felt too flimsy and looked too hipster for what I want. Does anyone have any other high-end suggestions? Ideally I'd like a lifetime heal replacement warranty. Thanks for your help, and sosrry for the typos -bt keyboard is slow.

    I own two and wear them to work with suits.

    Probably wouldn't wear them casually.
