Are they any different from a material and construction quality?
Ring Jacket is better quality. Very well made suits with fantastic fabrics. If you can get a Ring Jacket suit on sale for same price as MJ Bale Collection RRP I'd pick Ring Jacket no doubt. However, MJ Bale Collection in outlets for <$600 I'd definitely take over a Ring Jacket on sale at $1200. Considering you can frequent them in outlets fairly regularly and you have the advantage of actually trying them on here, I'd stick to MJ Bale.

Thanks for following, I noticed that. I don't think clickable links to other social media are allowed under SF rules.

I've been wearing my current corduroy trousers, from Charles Tyrwhitt and Land's End, for the past 8 - 10 years, and they're getting pretty worn. I'll have to retire them to weekend/casual wear rather than work.

I just noticed that Charles Tyrwhitt is currently selling pairs of wide-wale corduroy trousers for $39. If they're anything like the ones I've been wearing for the past decade, then that's a sensational deal and I just bought four pairs, in assorted colours.

So the question is - To cuff or not to cuff wide-wale corduroy trousers? Any opinions?

Yes, I've always cuffed mine in the past, and I just bought the Charles Tyrwhitt trousers unfinished, in case I want to add cuffs.

However, I've been wearing Uniqlo's "vintage" chino pants uncuffed lately so I did wonder if I should just have plain hems on the cord trousers, too.

30% off MJBale for Click Frenzy. Bought a whopping one tie. SuitSupply gets all my suit business nowadays, and shirts are all online MTM, MJB are just too restrictive with sizes. They should’ve learnt from the Jermyn St shirt makers to have more than one option in sleeve lengths.

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
