Quote: Originally Posted by D Yizz Is there a solution to this other than wearing a tent size coat, or am I confined to double vented jackets?

I'm built like a runningback and even my duel vent coats open a bit too much for me. The tailor insists that there's nothing to be done, because there's not enough...

Try Kiwi Parade Gloss. I use a slightly damp cotton ball, and spread a thin layer of kiwi on the shoe and buff it in a circular motion using the same cotton ball. Dont cake it on. With a little practice you'll learn to buff to a nice shine. I've been able to make some really old beat up shoes look new again. You do have to be careful, as the shoe will scuff easily. I've never had a problem with it cracking though as someone else mentioned.

Its possible your right arm might be a tad longer than your left. Unfortunately, most people aren't anatomically perfect. I wouldn't mess with it. Out in the world no one will notice.
Might have to pony up and buy a new shirt.
