    I just saw a very nice grey suit from yves saint laurent. Do they have good suits or is it just a waste of money?

    They're ok. Made in France, fabric is nice, though mostly fused. Be careful with their style though, can be very 1970s/1980s (structure shoulder, slim fit, high cut vents). Some people like it, some don't.

    Need recommendations for a jacket/coat. I already have a peacoat so need something else. Something that is versatile and classy. Budget is under $600. Canada Goose?

    I find I can wear virtually anything with my gloverall original monty, I even wear it over my pajamas when I'm just walking around local neighbourhood/shopping centre

    What does "antique" mean, when referring to the C&J Belgrave as being chestnut antique?

    Weird question. I recently got a custom 3 piece suit and it was my first experience. I forgot to mention that I wanted the back of the vest in the shiny silk. So it came back to me naturally at in the same material.

    My question is, is there a way that a tailor can take the back of the vest and stick the silk fabric making it the way I want it?

    Thanks

    Was going to suggest a duffle coat when I saw you had replied. This is what I'm after now as well - maybe a Gloverall or Schott.

    What do you think about these? Why don't you like the first one?

    Vests are relatively basic and uncomplicated, any reasonable tailor can make or alter one.

    Anyone know if the cashmere lining inside of leather gloves can be rewoven or relined when it starts to fall apart? Hate to throw away nice leather gloves, but not sure if people work on this sort of thing. in the NYC area. Thanks...
