    Friday Silliness: "Brooks Brothers Suspenders"--A Song Parody

    I couldn’t help myself and played the song on iTunes while reading/singing your lyrics to myself. My wife couldn’t figure out what I was doing and gave me the craziest look, hahaha. Another great effort sir! I truly enjoyed this one.

    So what's new? Share your latest purchase here!

    You had turned me into PC in the past and I’m curious your overall thoughts on their tweed? I have been looking diligently at their 3 piece tweed suits and wonder how well put together they are? Looks fantastic from the photo!

    The boot bug hadn’t quite been put to bed apparently. Couldn’t pass up this pair of very lightly worn Grenson Fred boots. I hadn’t seen them in a two tone color scheme before and at a price less than 1/4 of new and barely worn I figured what the heck.

    Low Budget Suits

    I would second the Jos A Bank option. I would also advise looking at their clearance Signature Gold and Reserve suit lines because they can be had from $99-$149 when they run their 50-60% off clearance sales. The Sig. Gold will work better for the larger gentleman (heavier or athletic) because...

    I passed on a new pair of Grensons because we couldn’t quite agree on a price. It did however put me in the boot buying mood, lol. I have been wanting to try the AE Dalton for some time and when a twice worn pair made from burgundy shell cordovan came available I made an offer. Thank you dabondo1

    Grenson/Foot the Coacher Boots

    Sadly this is the only pair available and in this color combination only. I totally agree regarding different hues. A brown leather would have been preferred. A search of the archives here at AAAC showed that at least one other chap purchased these and he was lucky enough to score an earth toned...

    Grenson/Foot the Coacher Boots

    The price is $450 but I was going to try and negotiate a little :). That CJ boot is a great looking boot! Sorry to hear your size wasn’t available.

    Grenson/Foot the Coacher Boots

    Stumbled across a vintage styled dress boot made by Grenson for Foot the Coacher and the Japanese market. I’m looking for a little codependent enabling and am curious if these would be worth picking up? Looks like they were made as a limited edition run about 5-6 years ago and “Victorian”...

    Joseph Abboud lines and differences?

    My only insight is that the website and NYC store have more fabric options. Many of them higher “quality”. I was also told that they have different features available i.e. lower patch pockets with a peak lapel (see the what are you wearing today thread for a wonderful model worn by our venerable...

    What Are You Wearing Today 2.0?

    Thank you Howard! I most certainly did. I wore a full beard for most of the month except the last week or so I shaped it into the friendly muttonchops as I believe they are called.

    What Are You Wearing Today 2.0?

    Thank you very much for the kind words gents! I am glad to hear the combo went well. Seeing the pin collar pulled off wonderfully by @upr_crust is what had me get a couple made as I truly love the look as well. I think this was the only time this hat has ever been worn by me outside the house ;)...
