I try to minimize the dry cleaning - once a year - and if a suit is totally wrinkled, it gets to my tailor for a new press. If...
Probably your feet are different in size from morning to afternoon. On the other hand, if the Borgioli are, as I suspect, Rapid-Blake's, the break-in process can be extremely painfull, and will be longer than Goodyear. You can get them streched by a cobbler and put some shoe stretcher foam on the inside until they are broke in (had this problem with a pair of Martegani, which took around 2 years - 6-7 wears in the meantime because it was too painful to wear them). The...

Yes, if the bride is not bridezilla! A stroller is a more flexible piece than a morning dress!

SB PL one button (pinstripe maybe), mohair, unlined, white linen (or buff) SB or DB waistcoat, can be done without back (like the white tie vest), shantung tie, buttoniere. Formal enough, informal enough for an outside wedding. Frankly, even if the wedding is the day for the bride and groom (to be honest, it is more for the bride, bachelor party is for the groom), for both of you the day will be not the most comfortable in your life. BTW, make sure that your shoes are...
To join the crowd: 1. A navy blazer - most versatile piece of garment - if you have the funds go for a MTM programme (if you can find it in the sales) 9 - 12 oz fabric; 2. Yes, charcoal looks better of rather rotund guys (see my avatar), buy a second pair in mid grey, but make sure it fits (no pulls, waist strangling, etc.). - better buy a bigger size and have it tailored, than a smaller size and to risk that you do not have enough room to let out)! 3. 4 shirts - you can...
