    GQ's Style Guy doesn't think a Button-down Collar shirt is a dress shirt

    When I first read this, I felt like asking you if you know what Alex does for a living. Then I looked at your join date and realized that you probably did. So I will ask you this instead: I have never owned a Yugo or a Ferrari, does that disqualify me from commenting on their functions and...

    English shoes - where to go for mid-range quality?

    I read on another forum that EG is having a pop up sale in London where their shoes are selling in your price range. Don't know if I am allowed to post a link here. You should be able to find it by Googling it.

    America The Slovenly: Dressing Down and Blimping Up

    Lighten up Shave. Admittingly, I've been away from this forum for a long time, but when did it become such a serious and stuffy place? Since you have looked up my profile, you should know my inner child often runs amok.

    Of course slovenly dressed and obesity are interrelated -- ain't no money left over for clothes when it's been all spent at Krispy Kream.

    The Rake: A Warning

    You obviously have no understanding of the market research concept, or possess the capacity for rational thinking. The purpose of market research is to find out the existing and potential customers' likes and dislikes, buying habits, price tolerance, etc. with the aim of product improvement to...

    The Rake: A Warning

    What I find so appalling is that Mr. Barker started a thread on another clothing forum seeking reader feedbacks, and then decided to cancel someone's subscription when said feedback was negative.

    Do these combinations work? (pics)

    ^^ Nice. Navy blazer and gray pants do not have to look drab. When worn with a high quality tie and pocket sqaure it could be quite dapper.

    Keep your shoes in shoe bags?

    +1. I also use them mainly for travels. At home, shoes that are not in active rotation I keep inside shoe boxes.

    Dunhill blazers - Who makes 'em and how good?

    All of my older Dunhill suits and sport coats were made by Zegna. But my more recent wool blazer has a label that is definitely not Zegna's. The quality of the blazer seems to be of higher quality than the others. I did some on-line research and it appears Caruso is the maker. A S.F. poster...

    Some Shopping Success - and Hickey Freeman Question

    This is where you are mistaken. Loro Piana requires other manufacturers to put the Loro Piana label on their tailored clothings when said clothings are made with L.P. fabric -- which is of course a form of free advertising for them. As for J. Crew cashmere sweater (I have read that article...

    Some Shopping Success - and Hickey Freeman Question

    The label says Loro Piana because the suit was made with woolen made by them. It is not a designer label that Hickey Freeman had paid a premium to have it slapped on and had the cost passed onto the buyer. Now, whether the Loro Piana fabric is better or worse than another mill's is a different...
