    Any idea what 100w HTWD would be as a type of fabric? I am selling a Spurr by Simon Spurr blazer and vest but Im not totally sure what its made of. It feels like a rough wool but Im not totally sure. Any ideas?

    agreed, they don't seem to get much love. I think they're thought of as the Boss of Italy. Personally I think they're well made and very good for certain body types (eg mine, slightly rounded shoulders, or someone like my father with a decent sized mid-section). Their 15000 series is reasonably slim. They're probably overpriced, but I don't think as much as some other brands. Construction's good enough for sure.
    can't speak to their authenticity, but it seems very unlikely someone would proactively make a fake version of something that unusual.
    Ima going to disagree here. Camel might work but will totally depend on his complexion. Navy, on the other hand, will almost always work.

    I just picked up these deerskin leather gloves from Norse Projects and am wondering how to care for them? I was planning on using a leather conditioner, but was wondering what you guys use for protection, if anything?

    Thanks

    Nice gloves. Deerskin is pretty hardy stuff so leather conditioner should be fine. I have some deerskin motorcycles gloves and they take plenty of abuse through rain and bugs and whatever else and they've stood up pretty well with just regular conditioning. Enjoy.

    I picked up a pair of dark green plain toe bluchers. In lower light they probably look closer to black but are clearly green when it's light out. My question is what to pants and belts to pair them with. I was thinking pants would likely be anything but black or grey and belts would be either black or brown. I haven't been able to locate dark green belts anywhere. Any ideas would be helpful, thanks.

    I think a darker grey could work.

    For belts, you're never going to get a belt that matches exactly. I saw go with black and be happy about it.

    I am new to the world of dress shoes. I am about to start my life as a physician, and want shoes that will fit the part. First, they need to be incredibly comfortable. I will not be wearing a suit so I don't want too dressy, but I want them to be nice. Basically they need to look good with khakis, dress slacks and maybe the occasional suit. I like Cole Haan pinch cup loafers. Any suggestions??

    Not a fan of Cole Haan, but Alden makes shoes on its True Balance last which are supposed to be very comfortable. Shoes on the Barrie last are often able to accommodate an orthopedic insert. Allen Edmonds also has a line of comfort dress shoes. Either would be a better shoe than Cole Haan.

    Hi y'all, I've been thinking about buying a couple Rugby RL polos online, unfortunately I have no idea how they run and there are no Rubgy stores near me so I can try a couple on.

    I'ma pretty short guy (5'5) average build (145 lbs) and size small custom fit RL Polo fits me perfectly.

    Now before anyone asks, I checked out the size guide on Rugby.com and tried to compare it to Polo's, problem is Polo doesn't specify whether their sizing is for classic or custom fit.

    I'm on the fence about ordering an x-small or a small. If anyone owns either size I could really use the help. Thanks in advance!

    HI THERE
    I am really stuck on what size is right for me. I just bought a burberry mac coat and tried both S and M instore but ending up getting the M because the S one felt quite tight.
    But now I tried the M one on at home again and it seems rather big. The sleeves are long and go past my thumb. The mac coat only just stops above my knees when I stand up straight.

    I am 1.75cm tall and quite slim (9 stone). Sometimes I buy a bigger size hoping I will put on some weight in the future. But does that mean I will fit a medium? I get concerned that I will get bigger and then size S will be useless? Or is it to do with my height and the length of my arms which are permanently the same length.

    I have 30 days to exchange/refund so that will be okay.

    any advice would be helpful

    thanks!

    ^ Look into properly sized coats, as in size 48, 50,52, etc. and you should get a better fit.
