On some recent online MTM shirts, I have detected a single thin horizontal ripple/fold of excess fabric just between the bottom of the collar and the top of the yoke.

I want a pair of these in black and dark brown - same Dainite sole too. Since the OP was 2009, any chance these are a regular Sargent offering now?

I love them. I have them in black, chestnut, and (finally after a long search) merlot. Almost bought them in chili too. On the 5 last so nice and sleek. Great looking shoe.

You can get the Loak Pimlico in dark brown suede for about $200 shipped. Great boot.

I have some pleated pants that need to be taken-in in the hip area. Is there a way this can be done without opening up the pleats?
