I am in Denver for the week. Where can I find clothes, shoes, etc.? Mathieu

One of my shoulders is somewhat forward, so that there is a hollow space over my collar bone. The sneaky jacket takes advantage of this: the fabric does not go smoothly from armscye to lapel, it kind of collapses in due to lack of support. Is there a way to fix this (shoulder padding, canvas, etc.)?

Oftentimes, narrower and extra 1/2 size compensate. So you may wear regular width shoes a half size smaller. The basic question is: would you really spend US$350 on AE or Alden shoes?

1. "My shoe size in American shoes is 12-C which may present complications in the European shoes." Why? 2. Why exclude C&J and other English shoes? 3. Vass would be $400 per shoe in Hungary. Even more in the U.S.
jmswentworth, I understand your problem. In order to avoid this I sometimes invite people to come to my place instead of going to a bar. This way I am sure that I'll find something drinkable.
