    Where can you buy a REAL Moccasin?

    These people might have them https://www.manitobah.ca/collections/moccasins but there is a choice on the page to specify made in Canada and using it takes out quite a few of them.

    Add pearllea.com to godior and kissingsilk scam sites?

    Some suspicious signs. Looks like one of the scam sites offering great prices and terms and either inferior clothes or nothing arrives after you pay. There have been several of them recently. They pop up, sometimes with images from other sites,. If you search pearllea reviews you will see there...

    That is some lapel in the top picture. Don't think I've seen them that short and that wide.

    New job, business professional dress code

    Consider choosing pieces that may be worn with the rest of what you have and are getting. The ability to mix and match your clothes and know with confidence that the pieces go well together is comforting. I once had drawings made to demonstrate the idea that you could get many days of different...

    Minimalist Dress Shoes

    I did this for a few years when I had trouble with my heels. Worked fine. The rubber used was approximately 1/4" thick.

    It's TWEED Season!

    Nice that they showed a second tie with the outfit. I wonder why shops don't always show variations. Seems to me that would both: a. accomplish the upsell for them; and b. save the buyer time and mistakes and extend the life of the clothes by letting them buy several variations that go well...

    A Winter Scent Wardrobe.

    Personally, I haven't worn cologne since trying some after Walt Frazier disclosed, in Rockin Steady - A Guide to Basketball and Cool, that he wore ?Aramis?, but my wife does enjoy the smell of a fire, and after watching that Katie Puckerik review I should probably revisit. Ha ha. That review was...

    Biggest balls begin

    Puca shells with sharks teeth? No. Medallions on short chains. No. Exposed clavicle medial ends not on a woman? No. Yet, those are the future unless action is taken. It will take long to turn the tide. There will be scorn and ridicule and public humiliation. But, in the end, we have no other...

    Good Looking Chinos?...Convince Me!

    I think it is as simple as my eye preferring a darker pant to be worn between shoes and jackets that dark.

    Good Looking Chinos?...Convince Me!

    They seem very popular in America, but they are far less popular where I am except for very informal wear. For me : a. they seem too casual to be worn with blazers or suit jackets or even dress shirts that are smoother than oxford cloth; b. the very common pairing of them in light color with...

    Tie fabric acceptable with every jacket fabric, except fabrics such as really thin linen?

    Worsted jackets, tweed jackets, silk jackets. Seems to me shiny silk ties will not go well with tweed or at least not as well as something with more texture would go with worsted and tweed and silk.

    If i were in the market for a shirt in their price range, saw they have a fabric I like, and was confident I knew enough about fabric to know what I would be getting, then sure. They did everything right and well.

    A bachelor buddy, age about 58, lives in northern Miinnesota.
