I work in aerospace, where chinos are plenty stylish for regular use. Therefore, I'm always needing a supplier of high-quality, good-looking chinos. Based on my reading here, I've tried Epaulet, Bill's, and Brooks Brothers.
I bought several pairs of chinos as well as some shorts from Bills...
As a shoe fan, I have a lot of different pairs and wear them and take care of them with all attention needed.

I really enjoy the quality and design of Polo Ralph Lauren clothing. Especially the fabric softness be it wool or cotton is simply superior to me when comparing to other brands. But I get more and more annoyed about the small polo player embroided everywhere on their clothing. Is there...

I am thinking about purchasing one of these two jackets, one for the fall and/or one for the summer:
I would greatly appreciate any advice on these jackets (quality, construction, etc.) and if...

OK, so its been close to a year since the CSE (when is it this year?) and I finally got a chance to try out the Sweaters that I won and I must say...WOW.
An amazing fit, feel and look (They even look rich).
And whats amazing and surprising in fact is that they as they feel and look.
as a younger man I haven't yet had the opportunity to buy shoes from the classic shoe brands like EG and C&J. The reasons behind this are both cost and appearance. I have always feared looking to old or out of place. So in the past two years I have been buying shoes from N.D.C.. I think...
