Who makes an extra small shirt that would be comparable to JCrew's men's extra small?
Thanks alot !!! I just google mapped Leather Soul, will be sure to drop by.
I am a little bit confused, I was always told don't get your suede dirty as they are a pain in the butt to clean. My Clark's DB also got a lot of blue stains transferred from jeans, haven't been able to get it out. I am going to search on how to clean Suede leather here to read up on it. Would gladly buy another suede chukka if it is easy to take care of. Suede seems so versatile for casual.
Thanks Patrick, that's very helpful.
Those blue stains are dye transfer, which is a colossal pain to get out of anything, so raw denim with suede is a risk. Some folks just consider it patina
Most other stains are really easy to get out of suede - there's even a youtube video from Lefot showing how to wash the Alden flex chukkas by brushing them under running water. Not recommended for lined suede, of course!
I'm not sure this is the right thread, I'm sorry if not.
I'm looking for a navy rain coat/car coat, around $100-150 with visible buttons.
Something like this, but cheaper.
Also I wonder where suits for shorter guys can be purchased on the internet? I just recieved a suit from suitsupply which was way too long for me, I'm about 5'5", 165cm. The size was 34 uk 44eu.
is gray vest with a black suit okay?
And is matching tie color with your date's dress color tacky? Was planning to match shirt color or not match at all...
Thanks for the reply - this is kind of important to me !
Is it possible to make a sevenfold tie narrower? Like from 4" to 3.5"? Thanks!
#8 Chromexcel in either boat shoe or beefroll penny, which one?
Look would be a white denim/patterned dress shirt summer style, might do a linen navy blazer or a faded black cotton blazer. Might also do alpha khakis.
Thoughts on which one is best for said look, also which one is a bit more versatile?
I would like some recommendations on a 3rd MTM suit fabric. My first 2 are a charcoal herringbone, and the second a medium/dark grey with small, light blue pintstripes. I was thinking something navy or brown. I don't have to dress ultra city/formal to work, but maybe it would be nice to have the option.
How close should back pants pockets be? I want a pair of pants taken in and fear the "pockets too close" issue
thoughts? excuse the sloppiness of the tie and the lack of smoothing out hte jacket--debating whether to return or not, hence why the price tag is still on there. off the rack saks zegna cloth slim fit. are the shoulders too wide? please scrutizine as i know SF will be the most critical of eyes.
suit 2 (colors do not appear that much different due to lighting. this is gray, previous is navy).
A lower button stance makes you look taller, leaner, and smarter. Wear your buttons too high and risk looking like a waiter. Waiters don't get laid as much as you think.
If they're dress pants, then the pockets should not be (too) visible, so this should not be an issue. Regardless you can always have them taken from the sides.
Not without completely remaking the tie. Sell it or shelve it, but it's probably not worth remaking, especially since such work would take a skilled tiemaker.
I like penny loafers, leather sole. If you want a rubber sole, go with a camp moc or boat shoe.
Navy, but not too dark of one.
