Best of Styleforum Classifieds, 12/21/2016

Every week, enterprising Styleforum member @razl takes time out of his busy schedule to search for what he can call the best of Styleforum’s classifieds. Out of that glittering company, we’ve picked our five favorites to share.


1. Ralph Lauren “Anthony” Shawl Lapel Tux, 699EUR – sold by @dijor (NEW)

We spent all of last week teaching you about the ins and outs of black tie, and this is one heck of a timely opportunity. This tux hits all the right notes – single button, shawl lapel, welt pockets, and a lovely trim cut – and at under 800$ (vs. $2500 at retail), this is quite a deal.

2. Crockett and Jones Connaught Oxford, Sizes 8.5 & 10 US, $349 – sold by @jreigen (NEW)

Speaking of classics, these beautiful Crockett & Jones “Connaught” oxfords in black calfskin will give you years of use if you take care of them properly. And again, for 50% of retail, you’re getting some serious mileage.

3. Begg & Co. Cashmere Scarf, $200 – sold by @dsutton (NEW)

Since 2016 is seeing itself out with a freezing blast, we definitely recommend avoiding frostbite with fine Scottish goods. Take, for example, this Begg & Co. scarf: cashmere so supple it feels almost liquid, and a pattern complementary to almost any outfit. We’re sold.


4. High End Fall/Winter ties (Vanda and Drake’s), $95 – sold by @TweedyProf (LIGHTLY USED)

One of Styleforum’s resident masters of neckwear, @TweedyProf, is selling what we think is a very handsome selection of ties appropriate for the winter season. They’re certainly robust enough in both fabric and design to stand up to your cold-weather wardrobe, and you’ll save a bundle over the retail price. If you’re looking to supplement your winter tie selection, look no further.


5. John Lobb “Chapel” Prestige Edition, $1,200 – sold by @MrVenneri (NEW)

Oh, baby. If you’ve got the budget for a pair of shoes that tops a thousand dollars, take a look at these beauties. John Lobb’s famed quality and craftsmanship, in a gorgeous and totally not Pitti-hashtag-worthy double-monk makeup. Yes, they really are that gorgeous.


Those are our picks for best of the bunch, but you can see @razl’s full list here.

Styleforum Editors

The Styleforum editors are a group of gnomes that actually do all of the work running Styleforum. Ari, and Jasper play air hockey, drink artisanal iced teas, and debate whether it's harder to get bolognese or bechamel out of grenadine ties, and whether either can be used to polish shoes.
