    Not like black and brown, but I would personally stick to darker browns.

    If this question is too long for this thread, then my real question is, where should I post this question :).

    I basically have allowed my high school wardrobe to cross over through most of college and now that I am going to start law school I am ready for a change.

    Basically I want to toss a majority of what I have, minus a few items. What I want is entire wardrobe of casual but very interesting and sexy looking clothes. I am not rich but I dont want cheap clothes. I dont mind making concessions on certain things, cheaper accessories mixed in with some designer denim from an outlet, but also some more expensive items.

    I would like to limit the amount of simple tennis shoes, denim, tee combos.

    TLDR: Want to start a sexy new wardrobe for a 21-25 age range person. How do I start. (I have a very good knowledge base of designers).

    ^ not to be glib but you clearly know what you want, and if you are knowledgeable about designers then there's only one thing left to do.... Get Shopping!! :lol: OK... but seriously, what is your concern?

    Ha maybe locations and a better idea of what I am trying to describe. Some kind of theme, cohesion. Not just 10 expensive outfits picked at random.

    The 13'' hem is a general description I think. It applies to all listed sizes. Can anyone else confirm that the listed sizes are EU? I've looked at other pants from the same brand listed on Barneys, and it seems that the listing varies. One pair has them listed US sizes (goes down to 28), yet goes up to 48. This seems weird.

    Thinking of ordering some shirts from CT Shirts.

    When I try on dress shirts, a 17.5 neck fits me perfectly in the neck.
    Should I upsize 0.5 to account for shrinkage?

    The rise (difference between inseam and outseam) will usually stay the same regardless of the inseam. With good trousers the inseam is usually made super long to begin with anyway, and then finished to the appropriate length. What you need are trousers with a longer rise, which means a different brand or model.

    Bought a PoW checked blazer in just the last month. Its composition is 51%wool, 44%linen, 5%nylon. The thing pills like crazy. I know it's a very loose weave, points of abrasion, etc., but it seems like if I look at this thing cross-eyed there is fuzz everywhere. Is this normal, and will it settle down once the loosest threads work their way out? Should I just bic it and worry about far more important things? Cheers.

    Was it used?

    I would pick off the pilling and not worry about it, really. Cheaper fabrics do tend to pill easier, so I am not sure what the quality is like. All in all it is probably not as noticable to somebody look at you as it is to you look down at it while it is on you.

    Nope, brand new, and not cheap (it's Japanese nylon-inclusion, rather than high street nylon-inclusion). I'll pick away, see if it settles and just wear with insouciance. Cheers.
