Anonymous asked: What do you think of the grenson declan chelsea boots in brown suede, and do they go with chinos? Thanks
They look nice and would go well with chinos - I’d keep the pants pretty tapered though.
Anonymous asked: Are Danite soles lame from an aesthetic point of view?
Not at all.
Anonymous asked: Hello. I have a problem that's been bugging me for years. What is a good coat for winter. I'm talking ny winter, with snow, cold and all that jazz. A down jacket that makes you look all puffy? A duffle? What's your choice and suggestion? Thanks a lot!
It depends on what you’re wearing it with really. If you’re talking about something over a jacket or a suit, then I’d wear a topcoat, peacoat, greatcoat, or what have you and get a solid umbrella. For more casual situations, I’d consider a nice parka like the Norse Lindisfarne or something from Stone Island, Nanamica, etc.
Anonymous asked: What do you think about wearing a panama hat on fall-winter season?
Probably one of those items you should leave for the warmer months.
Anonymous asked: It looks like Tom Browne has realized pithy maxim by Mies that "less is more" is not always so. Often less is just less. So now one can by a Tom Browne suit and not, as before, wonder why it should cost so much with 4/5th the fabric of most suits. Though probably it has more to do with trying to widen the customer base to make the piggy bank fill up. Anyway if I had inclinations to drop money on RTW, I'd buy a Samuelsohn (Canali quaility for less and union made) or Belvest. But I use a tailor.
Leave “Tom” alone already. Hard to compare his apples to Lesser’s oranges.
Anonymous asked: Dear Jake, I have a dilemma (because I don't have tons of money). Saw two great offerings at Yoox. One of a navy cotton single breasted Boglioli and the other a brownish DB Piombo in linen. I can only get one. Now I have already some navy jackets in my wardrobe and a light brown DB cotton number from Beams Plus. If I were to get yet another jacket, which one should it be? I live in the tropics in case you are wondering. Thanks a lot man.
Hmm it sounds like you have both of those choices fairly well covered - perhaps you should wait and find something a little different? Maybe a plaid or a different color? If you have your heart set on one of those options though, I’d go for the navy cotton Boglioli - that will be a staple for you for a while.
productoftheinternet asked: I overheat quickly but I love turtlenecks I am looking for a brand that has cotton/linen/silk/other cool fabrics in their turtlenecks Any suggestions?
I don’t know of a ton of options, but I would check out Aspesi - they have some nice looking jersey rollnecks. I believe Uniqlo and Brooks Brothers both have some lighter weight options as well.
