    Thanks. Loake for Herring "Dursley"

    Thank you Holdfast. I think a ginger suede would actually look really nice.

    Hey guys, I just picked up a new Plum Colored sweater that and am a bit confused on what to wear it with.. Does anyone have any experience on pairing it with either Light Brown or Medium Gray colored pants and which one looks better? Thanks..

    I have a purple-ish cashmere v neck. You can probably wear it with light grey trousers (flannel would be nice) and an OCBD (white or blue). I would advise against a tan color, go with a light olive-ish brown or maybe even a medium brown flannel. Also, if the sweater is highly saturated I would contrast it with a less saturated pant.

    Yup, Epaulet Japanese Pindot Flannel...great shirt.


    Some advice would be lovely folks. I have lost some weight, mainly due to illness :/ in the last few months. I am putting back on my muscle but it seems my midsection is slimmer to stay. I am concerned these items are "too big" now but when I look in the mirror it is fine, only on the cam pictures do I see issues. Mainly the waist of the sportcoat and the sweater. Thoughts? Traveling today and wanted a "smart casual" look.
    Macbook picture only to show fit a bit better, color/lighting jacked. Sorry.

    That is such a beautiful wear. How do you get them to that stage?

    -important message-
    NOBD has been banned for washing his jeans once again after repeatedly having been told not to.

    wait, wrong forum :p


    Seriously though; my guess is that washing raw denim frequently does improve its lifespan.
    As you can see from NOBD's APCs you will still get some decent fades even if you wash frequently.
    Nothing as extreme as this though.

    Love that cardigan. Sincere question though- are the shoulders supposed to fit like that? Thanks.

    yes.

    Don't listen to GQ. Knitwear needs a bit of slouchiness.

    meh. i'm a bit torn on this one. on the one hand, it does look good on Moo. on the other, it looks like an oversized, overpadded jacket would look.
