    looking for some recommendations on where to get a scarf.

    want to spend around $50-200, but am flexible and hard limit maybe $400

    important factors for me are:

    • the softness/quality of the scarf
    • i want to make a purchase with the best "bang for buck"
    • will be durable and last years with good treatment
    • pleasing design (distant 4th)

    right now i'm looking at cashmere burberry scarves, but am worried they are overpriced due to branding. can you guys offer any advice on where i should be searching?

    Based on your criteria, nothing beats Drakes London.

    I'd suggest you also consider size as an important parameter. I find anything smaller than about 70" x 12" limits the number of ways I can comfortably tie or otherwise wear a scarf.

    Looking for everyday shoes. Right now I wear Clarks desert boots but I'd like to have another pair to alternate with everyday. Preferably something black so its a bit more versatile, any recommendations? Not really looking for dress shoes but something on the same level as Clark DBs on the scale of dressy-ness..

    Pretty broad question. Sounds like you might be looking for something like boat shoes:

    or perhaps loafers:

    This pic shows two different styles of joining a suit jacket sleeve to the body:

    http://img233.imageshack.us/img233/7892/shoulderk.jpg

    The left image has a straight shoulder that runs smoothly into the arm, whereas the other has the arm attached higher than the shoulder, so you get a small 'bump' where they join.

    What is this bump called, and how is it made? What controls how pronounced the bump is, as some jackets have a more noticeable bump than others. I like it, I'm just wondering what you call it and how it gets there.

    What can I tell you to help you help me?

    I'll be walking outside in the winter with them, so I'm not sure if those two types of shoes are ok for that? Don't really like the look of the shoes in the first link you posted.

    Edit: Ok they look better than at first glance. I was looking at the more slipper types. They have some nice chukkas.

    Do these look good? And btw I said black but I just want a color other than brown that is very versatile.

    I just got this overcoat for London Fogg. Was looking to wear casual clothes with it too. If I can, what would be recommended to wear with it for casual events.

    I usually go naked under mine. YMMV.
