Several points of view…
Anonymous asked: Hey man big fan of your blog, read it everyday. Any experience with Suit Supply Dress Shirts? Are Hugh & Crye, Kamakura better picks? Thanks for your help.
I don’t have a ton of experience with Suit Supply or H&C shirts to be honest. Kamakura makes fantastic shirts for an even better price though.

Anonymous asked: The photo at pier 59. Where is that jacket from? (The M65)
It’s from Piombo.
Anonymous asked: Hej, although i'm pretty sure something similar has been asked before i couldn't find it in the archive. I will visit NYC next week and was wondering if you can recommend good vintage shops, especially for denim (jackets, trousers) and leather jackets. I would be happy about anything even if it's not denim or leather. Thanks!
Here’s a great list of vintage stores in NYC. Many of them stock jackets of all kinds, but you are probably going to have to dig a bit.
Anonymous asked: How many ties should I take to university?
Really depends on how much you plan on wearing them. I’d say 2-3 at least.
Anonymous asked: Hi, I will be back in London next month. Do you know where I can get something like "brown calf x brown suede chelsea boot" from your post? Price range £100-£150. Thank you very much and keep up with the great posts! :)
Unfortunately I do not, especially in that price range. Those Carminas are the first chelseas I’ve seen in that makeup, and you may have to custom order them. I would email Carmina directly if you’re interested. These are the only similar style boot I can remember off the rack, but they’re lace ups without the wingtips.
Anonymous asked: Grey or black selvedge? Any opinions would be appreciated, since I kinda want both. Blog strong btw
Thanks. I would get a good pair of black selvedge and wear them continuously. They’ll fade to grey eventually.
Anonymous asked: as a college student, is it acceptable to wear cologne (lightly!) on the regular? i've got some CdG i'd love to wear but i feel it's a weird thing to do
I would save it for nights when you think it will actually be beneficial. Even then, tread relatively lightly.
