Any idea where I could find another of those horizontally striped Glanshirt shirts you posted a couple weeks ago? Or any similar horizontally striped shirt?
Dude, I had been searching for a really long time/given up trying to find one and stumbled across that accidentally. Sorry to say I don’t know where else they are available.
I haven’t searched through the fabric list at Proper Cloth, but it might be worth taking a look over there and making one MTM if they have something you like. I absolutely co-sign all of their products.
I'm looking for a long sleeved polo, or a sweater polo, but I've only had luck finding good looking ones on J Crew and I found one on H.E. Mango, and some on Asos (which I don't like much). Any other suggestions? Anything $60 or below would be lovely. Thank you, sir.
If you could go a little bit higher out of that price range, I’d highly recommend Kent Wang. Their long-sleeve polos are fantastic.
There are also a bunch of really great deals on Piombo long-sleeve polos right now on Yoox that are in your price range.
Did your design school cover front end web development?
They do, but not to the extent that some do. There are web design classes that I took where I learned HTML, CSS, and some programming, but there isn’t a specific major for front-end design. Our comp-sci department is pretty great though.
If you search through TCNJ’s website, there should be a course list for every department.
so I am studying abroad in Rome for fall semester (august-december) and I heard the weather isn't gonna be mad cold, but rainy all the time. what do you recommend a rain jacket that is stylish, but also very practical?
That’s going to be an awesome experience, man. I’m jealous. You’ll definitely be able to find something from these options:
What's up man? I took a long break from the menswear world over the past year due to a lack of funds and boredom but I currently came into a new job which means more funds and am looking to buy some nice clothes. I'm not going to be wearing these clothes for work as I do construction management (wardrobe = redwings, chinos, and t-shirt/sport shirt). I've always liked that Ivy Style look, any recommendations on items or brands to look into that wont make me look like a stodgy 50yo man?
Definitely. There are a solid handful of brands with a youthful/contemporary approach to Ivy-type style (or classic menswear pieces). I personally dig the following:
Gant by Michael Bastian
Carson Street Clothiers
You should be able to create a pretty solid base from the brands listed above, but you can always explore more on sites like Mr. Porter to find some other (and more expensive) options.
I've been looking to purchase a Panama hat for around the pool this summer. I was wondering if you know of any online stores? Something under $50? Thank you
Hey brother, not going to lie, this is completely out of my comfort zone. I can tell you little to nothing about brimmed hats. I really wouldn’t know where to begin in terms or recommending a lower-priced option, due to lack of experience.
Hey man! I love what you're doing here. I'd like to thin out my wardrobe. Over the years, I've accumulated a large number of random menswear items, and I know I don't need all of them. The problem is, I'm having trouble deciding which ones I should part with. When looking at a big wardrobe, how should one go about deciding what to get rid of? What kinds of things are best to keep? I don't want to be a clotheshorse; I'd like to have a practical wardrobe. Thanks!
I completely feel you there, brother. I recently did a huge closet purge a few months ago, and my wardrobe is looking great now. There were four aspects I kept in mind when choosing items to sell or donate:
Frequency of Wear: This is the main one, and it’s pretty obvious. Keep track of how much you wear the pieces in your closet. If you have a really nice shirt, but you’ve worn it twice in the half-year you’ve owned it, is it really returning on your investment?
Versatility of Color: What pieces work the best with the other pieces in your wardrobe, in terms of color? Synchronizing the color ways in your wardrobe is a huge help. Shirts or pants that you can only wear with one or two other pieces are a waste of space.
Versatility of Weight: Pieces that you can wear in four seasons are obviously more valuable than pieces you can only wear in one. Take that into account.
Clothing Condition: If that pair of chinos that has ripped in the crotch seventeen times is still chilling in your drawer (and you have a similar colored pair) get rid of them. A lot of clothes hang around because of sentimental value, but there comes a time where the cord has to be cut.
Those linen trousers are amazing, may I ask where they are from?
Thanks, dude. They’re super gnarly.
They’re from Hartford. I snagged them from Mr. Porter, but the white color way isn’t available anymore. They do have an olive color though; I’m a big fan of that. Also, for the record, I had to hem and taper them.
What do you think of the Meermin snuff suede derby boots in a college setting? I'm normally a Clarks guy and dress quite casually without blazers and with mostly jeans, sweaters and shirts - but i think it might be time for a change. However, I'm afraid these boots are a little too dressy. Appreciate your two cents!
Hey man, I’d absolutely go for it.
They’d look fantastic with jeans and a white OCBD, and if the occasion presents itself, you could dress them up too. I think footwear is the most flexible aspect of menswear, in terms of formal and casual (obviously excluding sneakers and patent leather formals).
What's your favorite store to get unconstructed sportcoats and blazers at? I'm having trouble finding quality pieces. Thanks!
I’m not entirely sure how experienced you are in the blazer game, but generally speaking, it’s the boutique type shops that carry the best options. Also, if you’re looking for a quality garment, expect a hefty price tag to be attached. You can check out these shops to start off:
In terms of brands, the traditional places to start are with the household Italian brands. Boglioli, Lardini, Piombo, Luigi Bianchi Mantova, and L.B.M. 1911. Higher end brands like Eidos Napoli, ISAIA, and Michael Bastian will have some more expensive pieces. Gant Rugger and Gant by Michael Bastian will provide some more American options.
Obviously there’s a lot I didn’t cover here, but you should be able to find something you like if you’re really looking. Also, note that the stores listed with an * only carry their name brand.
