    The Quest for the Perfect Navy Blazer

    I own a hopsack navy blazer single breasted in MOP buttons. I would say the MOP buttons changed the look of the navy blazers. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Shoe cream (conditioner) - does it really matter which?

    My shoes are mostly 6 years old. I’ve been using Saphir Renovateur conditioner and have been happy about it. I think it does make a difference on my shoes in terms of shine and suppleness of the leather. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I went to O’Connell’s today

    Thanks for posting some pics of the store and the stocks they carry. My interaction with O’Connell is through email and online shop where I had the opportunity to buy the original Baracuta G9 jacket in British Khaki and Green, plus some ties and shirts. Ethan is indeed helpful as he walked me...

    Suit Advice for High School Grad

    I got my son a charcoal grey suit for his prom and a navy suit for backup. Both suits he’s been wearing for the last 4 years from graduation ball to college group presentation to internship. Minor alteration were made as grew thinner through the year. We both used the same tailor. Sent...

    Goldman Sachs dress code

    I still prefer to wear shirt, tie and suit even in an increasingly era of casual everyday (not just Friday). Call me old school and that’s fine. While growing up and finishing college, I had the option to work in a family trading business where there is no dress code or work in a...

    Louis Vuitton wallet

    I’m using this LV wallet which is compact (single fold) and discrete. Even the color is not LV. :) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Edward Green vs. St. Crispin.

    I owned a pair of EG Chelsea in 202 last and a pair of St Crispin Austerity Brogue. I can say that EG despite its wider 202 last would strain my feet at the end of the day wearing the said pair. The St Crispin, on the other hand, is so much better and comfortable on my feet at the end of the...

    Hermes ties

    I have one Drake’s ties in blue paisley and absolutely adore it. I have one Ferragamo tie. Just ok. I have a couple of Hermes ties. It’s hard to match with my stripe shirts. I think a solid color white shirt and light blue are the most for me when I don an Hermes tie. Sent from my iPhone...

    Not pleased with either shoe

    I don’t like either shoes and nothing wrong with your assessment. In my case, somehow after wearing for the day, the Carmina shoes in Inca last would hurt my little side toes. Hate the feeling and that’s why I seldom wear said pair. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Loden Suede Chukka

    Thanks for the suggestion. Never occurred to me to get the Superfeet insoles for my Alden chukkas which I have all three - snuff, brown and sand suede. That way, I’ll also be able to wear them regularly. Appreciate your inputs,SG_67. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Loden Suede Chukka

    Thanks for sharing your thought and sorry to hear that. I was on a long flight last Sunday and was wearing the said Drake’s chukka, no feet ache after a long walk in the airport. Pretty amazing. I’ve decided I will order the snuff suede version as well. I think it will go great with light...

    Which shoe is more formal?

    For me, it has got to be the no rubber sole black shoes. If possible, find a plain captoe and you are all set. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Is full canvass always better than half canvas?

    I always thought that the lightness or heaviness of a suit is dependent on the fabrics that were chosen. Mine is always full canvass with fabric from VBC, Zegna and Loro Piana. It has always been light suit for me. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Do you own multiple ties with same design but different color?

    I prefer blue shades of tie - dark blue, light blue, paisley etc. from different brands. I find blue ties with light blue or white shirt to be a good fit for my skin color. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Good color shoes for chinos and jeans

    I prefer the suede chukka for jeans and chinos. Preferred color of suede is snuff or dark brown. Just a personal preference. As to your preference, I see nothing wrong going for the MacNeil with the said color or even oxblood on the jeans abs chinos. If you put on a navy blazer, you will...
