    What are your go-to's for belts?

    Anyone ordered from Mr Porter and/or Bonobo's (chino's) as well?

    Wait wait... how do you guys tie your laces with an odd amount of eyelets (ie. 5)?


    I asked this a few pages ago now, didn't get any concrete answers apart from the usual bridle leather makers (Equus, Narragansett, etc.), which may or may not be too thick of a leather for suit wear.

    I might also have to surrender to bracers/suspenders: any suggestions on where to start looking here in Sydney?

    Do you mean where to buy them?

    I just get mine from overseas - either directly from Thurston, from retailers like Brooks Brothers or J. Press, or from eBay, as braces from RL Polo and Brooks Brothers quite often appear on eBay.

    If you order from Albert Thurston, you can ask them to fit leather ends in your colour of choice (well, as long as your colour of choice is white, brown or black).

    I have no idea what is going on with the "straight across" lacing in that Valet mag link - it looks very confusing and I've never laced my shoes like that.

    I use "Ian's Shoelace Site" for shoelacing methods, and my preferred methods are "straight bar lacing" and "straight easy lacing".

    I actually use the Valet method but I just took a stab at my own method of straight bar lacing and it worked out like that. Not really complicated at all. I use it for odd and even numbered eyelets.
