Anonymous asked: To the pal asking for Scarosso shoes: I had a look at them a year ago in a Berlin pop-up shop and they are ok. As you'd expect, they are blake-rapid, but what made me put them back in the shelf is that there suede did not make a good impression on me (softness, fulness and color wise).

Thanks friend - very helpful. 

outlast1820 asked: I seen the suit on the browns pic from 8/19/2013 was hoping to know what type of suit it was

That’s from Rose & Born. 

Anonymous asked: Do you have an opinion on Scarosso shoes?

They look decent for the price, but I have no experience with them. They seem to fall into a pretty broad category of blake-constructed Italian shoes that all seem to be made the same. You can find a number of other similar brands on Yoox. If anyone has anything more distinguishing to say about Scarosso in particular, let this guy know. 

Anonymous asked: I think Topsiders are meant to be worn sock-less, but not dress shoes especially. What do you think? Thanks for your posts.

It varies, but generally I’d agree with you. I definitely used to wear Topsiders sockless, but tend to switch it up with dress shoes and loafers, according to various levels of wear and comfort. Aesthetically, I don’t mind sockless dress shoes, but not to anything formal or resembling business. 

Anonymous asked: What do you think of Uniqlo's upcoming re-release of +J? What are your favourite pieces from the collection? Thanks, and keep up the great work!

It looks decent - I was hoping for a little more to be honest, but I like the vest and the chester coat. +J has always been a little hit or miss for me, so I guess it’s par for the course. I’m glad they’re bringing it back though. The Pure Blue Japan stuff looks pretty awesome as well.

chrsmllr asked: Hey there- love the blog! Ive got a wedding coming up in October, in Nashville, "dress well, not quite cocktail, not casual". I've got Indy Boots and a chambray spread collar in mind, what would you recommend for trousers and jacket? Or any other recommendations on an appropriate ensemble? Thank you in advance!

I’d recommend a navy blazer and a pair of grey trousers. You can probably change out the trousers for a different color or shade, but that’s what I’d probably wear. Enjoy the wedding. (I have a cocktail wedding coming up and am wearing something pretty similar)

dnbanks asked: Again, the " toggled" sweater on your opening page looks as if it's perforated. I would really like to purchase this. Thanks deryk

I’m sorry - which are you referring to? Can you send me the date of the post? If you’re talking about the light blue cardigan I posted recently, then that’s from RRL. 

Anonymous asked: Live in NYC, need suits for new job starting Oct 1. Go to Armoury or hit up P. Johnson NYC fitting in late Sept? Or both?

You can’t go wrong with either really, depending on what you want to spend. I’d recommend the Armoury though - ask for Nick or Jeff.
