    I hear that this only happens to bow ties that are under $130.

    I don't care for the look of dark brown pants with a navy blazer. Still, if you really think it looks good, go ahead and post a picture or two.

    It's not that I have anything against dark brown flannel pants, you understand. Or with navy blazers. It's just the combination that I don't think of as something which works particularly well. Still, I suppose exceptions exist, as exceptions exist to nearly any rule.

    Are arrival dates on Bergdorf accurate? Just ordered something for the first time in a while from them and they say arrival date is January 5th :cry:

    1. Need a few pair of socks. Seems like all the good socks here in Canada are at least $30 each. Can someone point me in the right direction? How much should I be paying for good quality without breaking the bank? Also, what fabric is desired? Will be wearing with my AE Strands.

    2. What kind of ties should I be looking at to wear with jeans mostly?

    3. Pocket squares here seem to be $30, $40, $50, $60 which is crazy. Can someone point me in the right direction for some good ones online?

    Eh, the best price you can find is $30 per sock? Sierra Trading Post has Pantharella wool socks for ~$10 after sales and coupons pretty regularly. For cottons you can go Viccel for about seven bucks, use the Style Forum discount link for 20% off.
    With a sport coat or what? What kind of occasion?
    Kent Wang and Sam Hober both have a bunch in the $20-30 range. You're not going to find many decent squares cheaper than that.

    Yeah Pantharella socks are $35 in stores here lol. Same with Paul Smith etc. Thanks for the help, will look into those places.

    Yes sport coat + jeans...what kind of ties should i be looking at? No special occasion, wearing mostly casually, maybe family gatherings, work (business casual).

    Will look at Sam Hober, Kent Wang doesn't seem to have a big selection of pocket squares.

    Knit, rough wool, and/or skinny. If you must wear a tie. Generally speaking, if you're wearing both a tie and a sportcoat you should bump it up to chinos. If you're set on the tie and the jeans, I would wear a sweater of some variety. V neck or cardigan.

    Hey, I'm looking to have a casual collared shirt (such as the one below) made by a tailor. What is the structural difference between formal and casual shirts that gives the latter its softer hand and appearance?

    mostly it will be your choice of material and how the cuffs and more importantly the collar are constructed. the shirt you pic'd has a button down collar which is more casual... and the less structuring that goes into the cuffs and collars will result in a more casual shirt.

    Yup. Material, fabric color, buttons, often a shorter collar, softer collar and cuffs. Play around with those as you see fit, that's the point of having a tailor make it.
