    hmm
    i feel like i hardly ever see anyone talk about CANALI suits on SF...
    what are some of your thoughts on Canali suits?
    comparable in quality to other brands like RLBL and Zegna?

    I am a little confused between two colors. Brown and black.

    Is it a definite no to mix them up?

    I mean wouldn't this (http://www.pritchards.co.uk/polos-7/polo-ralph-lauren-brown-shirt-c0004-11326-1445_zoom.jpg) look good with black jeans? Or should I wear dark blue with it.

    If wearing brown, we can still wear Black oxfords right?

    Black leather jacket on brown polo (Like the above) or a brown shirt would look bad or good?

    And lastly, Is it a no to wear black waist length jacket and black jeans with a blue or white colored shirt tucked in?

    I think Canali and Zegna is pretty mutch the same thing. It's more about how it fits you.

    The older stuff I have handled has shoulders that are too padded for my liking. They have some new stuff that is supposedly much softer in the shoulder and cut slimmer.

    I quite like the fabric from the Canali stuff I have felt, but the shoulders were a deal breaker.

    Please help me decide which Chukka to go for.

    Between
    Loake 1880 £160
    [​IMG]

    and Herring £155
    [​IMG]

    Very similar shoes, good year welt, brown suede (one is a little darker), and both use rubber dainite sole which I think is nice for Winter.

    My only concern is I can't recall who made Herring, probably Loake if I remember correctly? Anyone has experience with 1880 line? It's supposedly the best line they have to offer.
    Thx!

    Gdot has a ton of Canali stuff IIRC. Maybe shoot him a PM and see his thoughts? I had one jacket in high school. Thought it was teh tits. Looking back, not so much. Same padding/fit issues that Achilles_ outlined.

    Last I heard Loake was manufacturing for Herring, don't know if that's still the case. Herring shoes are good quality, especially at that price point.

    Although honestly I think I like the colour better on the Loake in the pics you posted.
