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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
