    I have some Thurston Boxcloth braces that fall a bit below the wasteline. Can I wear these with a 3pc suit?

    Yes. With the right flannel suit. Beautiful boots.

    Anyone have experience with Etro wallets? What kind of quality can I expect? Thanks.

    The second is often referred to as 'crows foot' button stitching, for obvious reasons. I'm not sure if there's a name for the other.

    I really love Etro's use of colors and patterns in their clothing.... why may I ask are you focused on an Etro wallet? Their general overall quality is good but not sure what draws you to their wallet...anything in particular?

    I want to buy a couple of pairs of trousers... all i've got at the moment are a slim pair of mid grey Paul Smith trousers that are a little too slim to wear to work.
    I like heather grey, and i've been looking at BB and Borelli. I'd like to wear these pants with a navy blazer, various sweaters, mostly to work and for more formal occassions. Love what i've been seeing in the WAYWT threads.
    I've looked at Shop The Finest, ehaberdasher, mr porter, and sierra trading. Recommend any other sites that has them on sale?

    I'd kop these if they weren't linen...

    thanks in advance.

    edit: looked around on the BBBF sale a little more... digging these:

    not sure if too fashion forward? would also love some options sans beltloops for braces/suspenders.

    Their outlet has some nice looking wallets on sale, was wondering if the quality was worth it, I do need a new wallet. Aside from that, I quite frequently enjoy their ties, some great textures.

    ya I love their ties, scarves, some funky pattered SCs and sweaters.... but... they have an outlet!? I'd say if you're getting it on a good sale (maybe 50% or so) then I'm sure it's not a bad buy...where is this outlet you speak of?

    It was nicely hidden in the Premium Outlet in Florida. I never noticed it until recently, funny stuff...
