    Does anybody know how Chippewa GQ's fit compared to Iron Rangers? I tried Iron Rangers on, but I might just go for the cheaper Chippewas.

    You get back the crease with an iron. A little starch wouldn't hurt, either.

    I hate these click-photos. I'm always weary of downloading anything presented this way, but I just can't resist my curiosity....

    Hey guys (1st post), middle-long time lurker

    Just wanted to know some quick thoughts on black chukkas - more specifically http://www.lastcall.com/p/Sebago-Tremont-Lace-Up-Boot-Black/.
    Some of my thoughts are similar to what has been expressed by others on the forums. Personally a fan of the chukka style (but not crepe soles) and was originally looking for a pair in brown for more casual, everyday use. However, these seemed to be a good deal and less formal than pure black. My concern regards the mixed look of these shoes - the textured black is more casual but seems strange to me in context of a black chukka. Thanks.

    I was reading the WAYW thread and the words "break" and "stacks" kept coming up. I'm wondering what they mean. I know, I know, Sorry, noob question.


    Noob question #2: How do I develop a more discerning eye when it comes to what works and what doesn't? I notice in the WAYW thread a lot of people will critique other people's outfits with things that I don't even notice.

    You've been a member since 2008, and you don't know the difference between a pleat and a crease, or what an iron is for? Just...wow :)

    I've been lurking, just recently signed up. There's usually not that much explanation, though..usually just that something doesn't "work" or comments on somebody's fit. I know it's all about aesthetics, I guess I just haven't trained my eye to catch what works and what doesn't yet..just looking for some pointers.

    I think it was serious suggestion. Well...sort of. I think the best way to get this stuff is osmosis. Just keep looking at what people praise, think about what you like about it, and you'll notice your choices in purchasing and wearing improve organically.

    Though by all means, post while doing so (so I suppose...don't lurk more...but observe plenty)

    Cole Haan does not get a lot of love on these forums, in my opinion for good reason - they are not a good shoe.
    Sure.
    Check with SW&D.
    I disagree completely.

    "Break" is a term used for pants to describe how the hem falls. Usually described as "no break," "slight break", or "full break." Can look those up on your own.

    "Stacks" is a denim nerd term for how jeans with a longer inseam "stacks" or bunches up around your ankles if the opening is narrow enough.

    So, does no one have any experience with (or overall opinion about) the quality of Corneliani leather goods, or should I post the question on a different thread?
    Thanks again and sorry to bump my question, but I was encouraged by the questions of previous posters (mine cannot be that bad)

    Re the question about Mourinho's coat, I'm not 100% sure but I recall the press in the UK saying it was Ermenegildo Zegna.

    Start them on e-bay for $5 and let them go as high as they will. Neither of them are good sweaters, you shouldn't expect too much.

    Does anyone have suggestions for custom shirts? I'm currently looking for 1-2 nice shirts that will actually fit me better (since I'm so skinny [​IMG] and I already go slim fit) than the RTW I buy at stores. I'm looking to order one with Mina and NSM but does anyone have other suggestions?

    Joseph A Bank has a doorbuster sale today on their merino wool topcoats for $99. Are they worth it? I've definitely been in the market for one and the price is ridiculous.

    It doesn't look bad on the website but I've never been impressed by JAB products in the past. And don't rely on the "sale" vs. retail price of $450. I doubt that coat was ever sold for $450. JAB is notorious for misleading sales.

    But if you don't have a topcoat, can't wait to peruse ebay or the B&S, can't save money for anything better, and have already visited your local thrift shops and come back empty-handed then go ahead.
