    Can anyone recommend a soft-shouldered, single-breasted, wool-mix 2 or 3 roll 3 button 38R mid-grey sport coat with patch pockets for $350 or under? Plain or a subtle pattern would be fine. It should look plain from a distance.

    If I'm going secondhand (which is fine), any particular makes I should be looking for?

    Many thanks in advance.

    Something like this is what I'm looking for but maybe slightly darker:

    Are there any shop recommendations?
    The forum search was of no help.

    Looks like it could be Tom Ford which will cost more than most bespoke in any event. If you are just looking for a similar glen plaid pattern, there are lots out there.

    I have to wear a gold pocket square with my tuxedo for an upcoming event (not my choice). What type of material do you think I should get? Hober has satin, grenadine, and shot silk. I'm leaning towards shot silk, but looking for opinions. Also, are there any other options out there?

    What are the main differences between Brigg's golf umbrella and their normal umbrella?

    The golf umbrella has a larger canopy and has an aluminum shaft instead of a solid stick wood one.

    Tweed tie... am I doing it right?

    I suspect I'm not.

    Also, sorry my collar is a mess, apparently my collar extender exploded.

    Can you roll up already cuffed chinos? Just wondering, before I buy someone online.
