    You need to browse the forum more. This is not a "quick question". You may want to check out Benjamin suits at ehaberdasher.com. Bank's are cheap for a reason.

    Suit Supply seems to be a popular suggestion to this question, as well as BB, and of course B&S forum.

    I can't offer a specific recommendation, but I know that the place I used to go to for basic suit alterations (not in NYC) would also turn the odd square of fabric into a pocket square, for a price, of course. So although I've never needed this service, I would think that it's something your tailor might well be able to handle.

    does anyone have any experience with the Cole Haan Shoes, Air Kilgore Plain Toe Oxfords? I was going to buy this one cause it looked nice and had good reviews on macy's, but then I went to zappos and it had 2 bad reviews about the poor quality of this shoes =/ My 2nd option is Calvin Klein Shoes, Gareth 2... looks about the same as cole haan and about the same price, what do you guys think?

    What can I do to prevent that I'm sweating through my dress shirts? I always wear an undershirt but on light colored shirt that just doesn't help enough.

    If you must pick between two evils, pick the lesser of the two. Cole Haan...

    I've got a pair of Cole Haan wingtips from a few years back (pre-SF). They're not the worst shoes I've ever owned. Not bad for glued, corrected grain shoes. As far as low-end shoe makers go, I'd put Cole Haan above Johnston & Murphy, way above Florsheim, but below To Boot NY. No experience with CK shoes. I would probably never buy Cole Haan again at any price and would advise against paying over $100 for them.

    What are the significant differences between the Clarks Desert Boot and the Clarks Original Desert Boot? My local store only has the originals.

    Hi guys, I'm looking for some good slim fit dress pants/slacks that I can get in multiple colors. I'd prefer pants that I can get in my correct size without needing them altered. I'm typically like a 33/34 waist and a 29 length. Another member here (herrmj) suggest I try Epaulet's slim walt trousers: http://www.epauletshop.com/servlet/the-Mens-Clothing-cln-Trousers/Categories. Those seem really great but they only appear to come in a 34" inseam and are a little bit more than I'd like to spend at this point, especially since I'd need to have the length altered. I'm especially interested in lighter gray. I have at least one pair of the standards (black/navy/charcoal) that fit well.

    lol my main concern is the review on zappa said that "the leather scuffed easily and thin, top shiny layer comes off with the slightest brush up against something rough", another one said "pealed after 2-3 casual wears"... so I just want to know if this is normal? its nappa leather if that makes any difference... to be honest i don't know anything about leather and dress shoes... that's why the 2 different answers by you guys just confused me even more! haha [​IMG]
