    Very quick question (as a maiden post)...how do all the Etro brands differ? I've seen various Etro with different numbers but Google-fu didn't help me differentiate between brands (i.e. is it like Boss Black v. Orange/Z-Zenga vs. just Zenga)...or just release versions.

    I am looking for pocket square cloth (I want to try to make one on my own), could anyone hint me in the right direction?

    I believe DWFII is referring to a close-up of where the sole meets the upper so he can examine the stitching more closely. Same shot, just a better view of the stitching.

    A few years ago Polo had some trousers that people referred to as "platinum trousers". Anyone know who the maker would have been? Made in Italy very sturdy/thick.

    any fabric store or online fabric retailer could be a source of silk, cotton or linen good for such a purpose.

    Who makes Barney's trousers? Are they considered good quality?

    Chances of finding a suit that looks like that OTR are about the same as winning the lottery and not spending it on dumb shit.

    I found this shirt that fit me in my grandpa's closet, but I have absolutely no idea what the hell I can wear it with. Any ideas?

    Denim, khakis, cargos, red or burgundy corduroy, lighter grey wool flannel, maybe donegal / tweed...

    Great looking shirt. Nice find, man.

    Thanks guys. I suppose it's much more casual than the rest of my shirts so I'll wear it when I'm not working,

    Are these t-shirts suitable to be worn together with chinos/shorts in the summer? Or are they really undershirts? I want an alternative to polos when I'm going to really hot places.
