Question for the experts regarding collar fit for someone with erect posture. Most RTW jackets I try do not fit me in the back of the neck: I get extreme folds behind the collar, running toward the shoulder seam. I have had a BB Fitzgerald jacket tailored by BB with excellent results. However, I am hesitant to try it with other brands, and have been told by onr tailor that it's going to cost over $200 to lift the back of a coat and redo the shoulder seam. Is this...
How do I prevent the points of my collar from curling? For example, this is a cotton oxford after a day of wear after being ironed with steam. I've never tried starch though .
Someone polished these light-color AE Fifth Aves with black polish, and now they're up on the Bay for pretty cheap. Should I buy and try to strip them?

Allen Edmonds Grayson 7D tassel loafer. Worn less than 10 times. Uppers in great condition with normal creasing. Color is between walnut and bourbon, not sure exactly. This was my first shoe in the 7 last, and it's a bit loose in the heel. Ground shipping CONUS included, no shoe trees. $65 $60

On ebay...
