You might ask your cobbler if mineral spirits (my Dad used to call it "safety solvent") would work to remove it. This has the effect of stripping. Could be too extreme?

I'm not going to bother with alterations...if it doesn't fit, back it goes. +1 on that. Don't bother! Good luck.
Sounds like too much tailoring for me.
I think you are John Heder. I would go with larger, generally rectangular shape with a regular width temple. Zegna makes some nice styles. Avoid smaller rectangular with thick temples and avoid colored trim at all costs. Also avoid the ones Heder is wearing and anything circular.

I would say those are exactly the outfits I put my boys in when they were 15 for with jackets and ties and khaki or gray pants, but only for weddings and funerals. For a job like this I think a button-down with a tie and khakis (non-school uniform kind) would be find. Jacket is pushing it IMO.
No black and blue. Not big on cardigans under a jacket anyway. Too warm and too bulky.

I have at least 6 pairs I acquired over the last couple of years, regular price $450-$500, on sale for half. Other than that you are pretty much stuck in the Cole Haan range. I meant to say on the Brooks Brothers website. Just the other day they had white wintips, two models in my size for $250.
