lookyoungspeakold asked: Hey Jake. Info on that rollneck? Can you maybe suggest a few places to find a good chunky oll neck sweater (around $250 max)? Thanks as always.
It’s from Drumohr. Unionmade has a bunch around that price range from brands like SNS and Howlin. To get some of the Italians down around that budget I would check out sites like Yoox and Farfetch. Just go to knits or sweaters and search by rollneck or turtleneck.
Anonymous asked: Have any recommendations for a starter sport coat for someone with a limited wardrobe? Being taller (6'4'') and interested in a slimmer, less structured look (a boglioli or cantarelli look, perhaps) that still has length, it's tough to find anything below 600$. A linen blend might be nice as it never gets too cold where I live.
I would suggest you go to Suit Supply. They have a wide range of sizes/fits and also use solid fabrics in a variety of weights and patterns.
curlyculture asked: I recently discovered Yoox. I live in europe. What I can say is that it seems like an awesome place to buy clothes, if you know your size. But it's so big, with so many brands, that I feel lost. Do you have any guide on how to buy good stuff and find what you need? thanks
I typically look for things on Yoox, Farfetch and the rest by brand. My list isn’t super long, but it consists of the ones that those sites mainly carry i.e. Boglioli, Lardini, Cantarelli, etc. You can also find great deals on random and lesser known brands like Tagliatore.
Anonymous asked: Would you wear Danite (Dainite?) soles in summer?
Anonymous asked: What do you think of the new Ludlow shoes from J Crew?
They look like they basically created their own Aldens, but undercut the pricepoint. They’re probably pretty decent, but it’s hard to say without seeing them in person/wearing them.
monsieurcustard asked: Hello there. I have a problem with a pair of trousers that were tailored, and then re-tapered at the calf area, but now it fits a bit too tight there. Is there anyway a tailor would be able to loosen the calf area a bit (I know it seems far fetched)? Also the trousers are from incotex and are cuffed in addition. Love your blog by the way. Thanks in advance...
You might be able to get them let out again, depending on how much fabric the tailor left near the seam when he/she tapered them.
