    Questions about a thrifted 50s (?) 613HH Perfecto I picked up a few weeks back.

    Hey folks, first post on here, fingers crossed I've got the rules down but feel free to yell at me if not. I can move this over to a post in the 'Ask A Question, Get An Answer About Outerwear' thread if this is simply taking up unnecessary room. Anyway, picked up this 613HH (I think - this is...

    Age range of this Bailey?

    I stumbled upon this Bailey hat online and it called to me enough to take a chance. It's well-loved, dirty, and has some small stains, which are features, not bugs, as far as I'm concerned. It was $25, as well, which was also a feature. It's a bit big, but some foam fixed that. Does anyone know...

    How Do I Tie N1 Drawstring Cords?

    Very random question, but my McCoy's N1 came with the drawstring cords undone. I'm trying to tie them similar to what's shown in the photo, but I cannot figure it out. I'm literally useless at this moment. Can anyone explain this to me?

    Price difference in Japan?

    Hi folks! My partner and I are currently saving up for an eventual trip to Japan. I know the prices of many of the Japanese-made goods we see here—The Real McCoys, Iron Heart, etc.—are inflated in the western market. I was wondering, just how much lower can I expect the prices to be in Japan...

    Does anyone have a Real McCoy AND a Buzz Rickson N-1?

    I have a Real McCoy's N-1 (2022 Khaki Plain) in size 38, but I'm leaning toward buying a Buzz Rickson N-1 in Navy. Comparing the two, it looks like a size 36 in the Buzz Rickson might be a similar fit to the McCoy's 38. Can anyone who has both brands offer a size comparison between the two? I'm...

    How we might get past the "hat phase"

    This is a question, maybe a discussion, and I hope I don't offend anyone by misspeaking, but I'm genuinely curious if anyone has considered the hat problem in the world. I don't really know where to start, but I felt that here would be the best place to discuss it. In the world, mostly...

    Is a black waistcoat acceptable with White Tie?

    I'm probably never actually going to NEED to know, but I'm curious as to whether or not a classic black evening waistcoat would be considered permissible with Full Evening Dress/White Tie. I heard somewhere that it was allowed in the Victorian era, but that it went out of fashion after 1901.
