    Those look nice. How's the fit/sizing on them? Price?

    They are slim fit, I sized up one size for a more relaxed fit. I paid 3990 JPY (about 40 USD).

    Decided to finally get a decent pair of shoes and ordered a pair of Loake Banks boots. Many said go up to C&J or Aldens, but I need to keep in a budget. With my daughter's college to save for and other bills the Loakes fit the budget best. I also picked up a new Alpha watch. I have worn their vintage hand wind chronos in the past and decided to try another. Alphas are homage watches and come with a great price. After my daughter's school is done, I can then get the final Rolex and the IWC I want.

    ^ it's funny that you like Alpha. another message board I post on got a group purchase together and bought a bunch of Alphas. a few arrived dead, and most of the rest broke within a few months.

    I have been very lucky. I had 2 of the hand wind chronos in the past and wore them for years before selling them. This is my first auto form them. Hopefully it lasts, if not I don't mind, it was only 47 dollars. After my daughter is done with school I will get the Rolex Perpetual to replace it.

    A length of brown multi-stripe ~8oz cashmere blend /worsted 120's from GRM for a new summer two-piece DB. No pictures of the cloth I'm afraid.

    Also- a new Geoff Nicholson tie-

    Thanks to all who advised me on the possible (which may not actually be necessary, we'll see) sleeve alterations to my most recent purchase. Moderate lapels, higher armhole, almost a fishmouth notch lapel, double vents.

    This is my first "vintage" item, a Douglas Hayward bespoke that matches my measurements perfectly-- even the trouser measurements. I actually plan to wear them as separates, so I now have a pair of flat front tweed trousers-- what does one wear with a pair of trousers like these (besides a trim fitting, open collar white shirt?)?

    I dig tweed, and it can work with everything from that plain white shirt to tattersalls to sweaters to sportcoats. It looks like they're a relatively lightweight herringbone, right? If so, I'd just treat them like any other pair of brown trou. I wouldn't pair them with a non-matching herringbone coat, but otherwise .... I normally pair tweed with items of similar spirit and heft, but there's no need to feel locked into the tweedy English gent aesthetic. Here, the herringbone just adds a little texture and surface interest.

    Just purchased another sale tie from Drakes as well as a knit merino sale scarf. The scarves are on sale until the end of March. Drakes delivery speed is ridiculous. Placed my last order on a Sunday, processed same day, arrived on Tuesday.
