    I think those are okay. Blue suede would look good.

    Do these boots and pants go together? I'm having a hard time with what color to wear with burgundy pants.

    They don't sound first quality to me. The sole should not have any signs of wear in my opinion. I would probably overlook discolorations that you can't see when the shoe is laced. Heck, I have a pair in walnut that had a little discoloration on one of the toes, but after a few polishings and wearings, I'm the only one who can see it. I pointed it out to a friend yesterday and he claimed he couldn't anyways.

    Hats off to the New Allen Edmonds!

    I have the waxed Mile Marker jacket and think it’s a good, lightweight version of a Barbour

    Does anyone has experience with the wool overcoat from Goodfellow & Co featured today in the main page? I'm worried about the fit and how padded the shoulders might be (returning it is no option, that's why given that it would be my first overcoat it seems like a "safer" bet than more expensive jackets). Just as a reference I wear 34 in SS jackets or 36 in Ludlows, and Target only carries Small (not XS).

    Thanks!
    If returning is not an option, I would pass on Goodfellow. Too many instances where there are major sizing variances.

    TUX Jacket with black dress pants from another suit


    Can I wear a tuxedo jacket with black dress pants for a black tie wedding event ?
    I feel a full on tux might be too much

    Also if I wear the jacket ( https://us.suitsupply.com/en_US/even...ngwear_Package) can I wear a skinny tie instead of a bowtie ?
    Why would a tux be too much when attending a black tie wedding event? If actually black tie, they want you in a tux...?

    You can wear a skinny tie if that's your thing, but a bowtie is more traditional. This one is more personal preference.

    Sure, you CAN--but do you want to? Usually tux trousers have a satin stripe to match the lapels. But I've done it in a pinch when I didn't have the $$$ to get new trousers. The world won't end.

    Same with the skinny tie. Nobody's going to kick you off the social register, most likely. Also, the skinny tie looks somewhat better if it's satin.

    But you can buy a bow tie very inexpensively, and I would wear a cheap bow tie over a skinny tie.

    Alright, thanks. Would you wear anything underneath them?

    I've seen a study somewhere, I want to say from england?, that they don't actually aid the workout but they help the post workout. The increased blood flow is supposed to help get the lactic acid build up moving so you don't spend as much time being sore

    I have had multiple jackets altered for sleeve length. If it’s an expensive coat, I would take it to a good tailor and not a dry cleaning place. Talk to them about the details, like using a thicker thread.
