camjaynowsd asked: Hello Jake, I'm looking for a keffiyeh wrap/scarf to appeal to my military/adventurer style. However, I want to invest in the the raw authentic kind and not the cheap bagged ones made in mass production. Would you happen to know of any makers?
If you must, this is probably your best bet.

Why not? I have and I think it went reasonably well.
Anonymous asked: Hi jake, I highly value your opinion. I am looking to purchase some winter trousers from Howard Yount and there is a large selection. Tweed, flannel, lambswool, donegal, winter nailhead etc. I'm hoping you can help me narrow down the most versatile options as I am budgeting for 3 pairs. I am on b2b sales and typically wear trousers, shirt and tie with sportcoat. Thank you for your time and keep up the inspiration.
You’re probably going to be best off with a navy and a charcoal grey to start with, depending on your blazer selection (go with two shades of grey if you primarily wear navy blazers). I would go with two staple solid colors in flannel and wool to start or perhaps mix in a little texture (something flecked like donegal). For the third pair you can opt for either further versatility like a dark brown or khaki, or try something a little more adventurous like a plaid or tweed. Up to your personal taste in the end, but definitely get at least two pairs of basics in a mid to heavier weight.
Anonymous asked: Any opinion on how Sid Mashburn shirts fit? I'm a small dude (5'7"-5'8" & 125 lbs) and am wondering if the smaller sizes will be trim enough.
They fit on the slimmer side - probably close to Brooks Brothers slim fit. If you need them slimmer you can always take them to the tailor as well.
irgenius asked: What color jacket/blazer would you wear with a navy shirt? More specifically, a navy seersucker shirt.
I think darker navy shirts work great with olive green casual jackets like field coats or harringtons. They also work with black/charcoal jackets like peacoats or leather jackets and go well underneath knits/vets. If you really want to pair it with a blazer, I’d probably go with something in the darker grey family.
Anonymous asked: Hey Jake! Awesome that you answer ppls questions on such a regular basis! Very informative! I'm looking for a chukka boot in suede and I'm very fond of the Loake 1880 Pimlico. The slightly chiseled toe and the very dark brown seem very nice. What's your take on it?
I really like the Pimlicos and think they are one of the best options at that price point - super versatile. You should definitely go for them.

albilicious asked: Hello there, i was thinking if you could show me what to wear if you were getting married and what the best man should wear, preferably in pictures. Best regards from Sweden. thank you
I would wear a made to measure tuxedo - mine would probably be midnight navy with peak lapels and besom pockets. My best man would probably wear a navy suit of some kind. I’ll post a few shots after this.
