    So charcoal grey pinstripe suit jacket + charcoal grey (or black or herringbone grey) solid pants = ok?
    Meh, i guess there are different opinions on this one. I can tell you taht technically, no, it's not kosher, but in real life most people won't notice or care and if it helps you get more millage out of your clothes then just do it. The pinstripes are what would give it away. If it was any other pattern or plain, it would be easier to do. For guys with big wardrobes and who are fussy about traditions, it's a no, but for the average person, I'd say try it a few times. It's not a serious faux pas IMO

    do certain lapels look better on some body types or is this a personal choice thing?
    On peak versus notch, I don't really think there's any reason one person versus another couldn't wear them. Probably the most important factor is the WIDTH, which should be proportional to the frame and suit size. I'm a 36, so I prefer 2.5-3 inch lapel widths. 3.5 looks a little too wide on me (for single breasted anyway)

    i would like to know how apc rescue jeans fit i am a size 38 are they super tight, loose?
    Try the Street Wear and Denim version of this thread...
    The rescues if I remember are the loosest cut, wider then the Standards.

    Quick question:
    Shirt collar under sweater or out?

    I pretty much always go IN. Out just seems too 70's to me and often looks sloppy too as the collar ends up spreading out too much

    Also, I am set on owning a vintage Burberry trench coat in 38/39R. I want an authentic Burberry with Novacheck, but can't afford a new one with my student budget.
    What would be the best way to get in touch with someone in the UK who could help me with this? Post in WTB? Join another forum like Fedora Lounge?

    Close, but the temples on the pair worn by Perry don't seem to be quite as tall as the others.
    So what kind of eyglasses do you think Mathew has. I've been looking to find the model for a while. any chance someone knows??

    Hi sf! Quick one after surfing around a few forums and still am unable to decide whether to resole or not.

    Do these need a resole?

    p.s. hope image size isn't too big (chose smallest size on photo upload site)

    I think it's fine for now. As long as the thread is not broken, I will not resole it.
