Brethren, This thread seemed like the right place for this question. I just bought a Woolrich Yankton jacket (essentially a Harrington copy). I really like it, but the sleeves are a little long and a little baggier than I expected. Could the sleeves be tapered and taken up, or does the cuff and sleeve lining make it impossible?   Picture of jacket here: http://www.famousbrandsoutlet.com/img/product_large/7398_303.jpg
Just listed this morning.   E Zegna Trofeo chocolate brown trousers - 40x31 http://www.ebay.com/itm/271029143044?ru=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fsch%2Fi.html%3F_from%3DR40%26_nkw%3D271029143044%26_rdc%3D1   E Zegna chocolate brown flannel trousers - 40x31 http://www.ebay.com/itm/Ermenegildo-Zegna-brown-flannel-pants-trousers-40x31-Incotex-/271029147152?pt=US_CSA_MC_Pants&hash=item3f1a989610   Canali navy birdseye blazer -...
Two AE questions. I'm sure you guys can help me out. I'm buying my first pair of quality shoes, and need some help.   First, about fit. The footbed on all AEs I've tried on has gone up right where my big toe is. The rest of the shoe feels great, but right at my big toe (big toe only), there is an upswing that is a little uncomfortable (but tolerable). Is that something that will go down as the shoe is broken in? Should I keep looking?   Second, I ordered these Weybridge...
I'm looking for a briefcase for my job. A thin Saddleback is probably in the future, but I need to buy some clothes/shoes as well, so I'm looking to save a little money on the briefcase end. Office dress is business casual, and I thought this bag from Frost River looked great. My wife, however, said the handle makes it look "feminine". Your thoughts? The size is just right, and I don't want a bulky, oddly-shaped messenger bag. Just need enough space to hold the company...
Ending in the morning...E Zegna 40 R sport coat. Really nice.   http://www.ebay.com/itm/270900307360?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649
Where exactly is the "wear spot" on the arm of #5? What is the measurement from pit up to the top of the sleeve seam? (I don't like big blousy, baggy arms)
I just bought an navy, unstructured cotton blazer. It's got a worn look to it. Kind of like this one pictured. What kind of pocket square would go with this (if any at all)? Would silk look too polished with something like this?  
Quote: That's how I go about it: in order of need. Right now, I most need shoes, pants, and jackets. I hit those first. I rarely even look at shirts because I never find anything worth wearing.    
Hey guys. Wanted some opinions. Found this coat below for $40 (!!!). This store is usually pretty reasonable, but they mark up "high end" items. Not sure this is high end, but it is sweet. It's not part of their sale rotation, so it's always going to be $40. There's light staining around the collar. It's 100% wool, made in Poland (or maybe it was Hungary). Virany brand (never heard of it). It's missing the 3rd button, and part of the lining on one sleeve is coming away....
Just listed a pre-owned E Zegna sportcoat. It's really nice, in great condition. I would've posted it to B&S first, but I haven't been here for 45 days yet, so I went straight to eBay. Here's the details of the listing and a couple pics. More pics/deets on the listing.   I will sell directly to a SF member for $50 shipped (CONUS only). Just PM me and we can work it out (before I get any bids,...
