Anonymous asked: Hey man. Great blog. Im an avid follower ! Have a dilemma I hoped you could help me on. Have been in the market for some black cap toe oxfords for a while and had put 350 euro aside for some Crockett and Jones Hallams. However, through your blog and others I have become enamoured with Meermin, and for that price I could get their Oxfords AND a pair of the suede Double Monks. What ya think ? (I...
Anonymous asked: Hey, Jake. First of all, love the blog and how much time and effort you put into helping people with questions. I've thrifted a few jackets over the years and come to find out that they are probably orphaned suit jackets. Is there any way to deconstruct these or somehow make them less formal so they fit with other less formal/odd pants?
Anonymous asked: It seems like I see more pictures of people with suits without belt loops these days. Is this a good thing in your book? I think it looks pretty cool and was thinking about removing belt loops from some of my pants. Is this a bad idea? Is there a pair of pants/jeans/khakis etc. I wouldn't want to remove them from?

Anonymous asked: Affordable place to get opera pumps for a black tie outfit? I'm not adverse to spending more money but considering how inflexible this type of footwear is (I'd wear it like 3 times a year maybe) I'd ideally like to pay a little less.
Anonymous asked: I've been looking for something with patch pockets for awhile now (given that I'll really only wear it for casual occasions) and Trunk Clothiers' Boglioli Hopsack Dover jacket is perfect for what I need. However, they also have a full suit - in your opinion, would it be worthwhile splashing out that bit more for the whole set, or would the jacket alone be sufficiently versatile?...

hhabilis asked: Hello, I was wondering if you could point me in the right direction for a suit for a few summer I have coming up. I am 5'9 and a 34 suit jacket, and a 28in waist. I have come across a few articles saying I should try children's sizing. I am not opposed to this but I feel the cuts would not be ideal. I am looking for a slim suit that can also be worn to upcoming functions for my...
Anonymous asked: Firstly, I'm looking for a burgundy longwing - do you have any recommendations? While researching on brands, I came across the Alden 975, the Church's Grafton and the Loake Royal. My next question is with regards to the tremendous price differential, which is in spite of what seems to me imperceptible differences. Hoping that you can shed some light on the matter!
Anonymous asked: Hello ! First of all I really enjoy your blog, you've done an amazing work at inspiring many people including me ever since you've started it. I'm new to menswear though and I have an issue. I'm kind of fat (6 ft 2in and 200 pounds, not all muscles) and I'm having a hard time finding sports coats or pants (jeans or trousers) that fit well. Except losing the weight, which...
Anonymous asked: Great blog mate! Reading through your blog I understand you really like Meermin and hoping you own a few pairs from them. I was wondering if they fit true to size or do I need to size down by half or full size when ordering. I was thinking about ordering few pairs and wasn’t sure how they fit.
