I have muscular thighs, so skinny fits make it look like I'm wearing a diaper. Even Slim-Straight seems to be a little tight around the thighs, and even if I go for them, the leg & leg opening are a bit too wide for what I'm looking for. Is a "tapered" jean the thing I'm looking for? Any recommendations? (Levi's seems to only have tapered that is "slouchy on top")

Most slim straight jeans have a slight taper from the knee to ankle. If they're tight on the thighs for you, then I'm not sure a tapered jean will work for you unless it's one with a slouchier top. You can take a look at the Naked and Famous Weird Guy and see if it fits you.

Does that mean I'm forever condemned to have the legs a real man should have and no way to show off my butt? :)

^Imperial Shearers have space for thighs and have small leg opening. Go to Self Edge and look at the measurements to see if you'd like them

Who does yoox use to ship products in the US? I need the item held for pickup as I will be out of town. I think it was UPS? Or was that only returns?

I'm having difficulty finding plain coloured slim-fitting T shirts designed for tall men (I'm 6'2" and in the UK). I've searched around lots of forums but none of the brands suggested seemed suitable and many links have expired. Lots of the brands of slim fitting T shirts I have seen are not just slim but short also. I'm not talking about extra-long shirts. I just mean shirts that look a normal length on a tall person but are still slim-fitting. So do you know any brands for high quality simple shirts like this? Thanks in advance!

Complete fashion noob here, only last week did I decide to learn a little bit and make some effort to dress decently. I'm in my 30s, with the build of a skinny computer guy, mostly wearing polos and khakis.

 

I'm looking for some not-too-expensive shoes to replace my Rockport sneaker-dress-hybrids (which are getting old anyway). Something not dressy, but not sneakers either.

 

Is the Clarks Bushacre boot in beeswax a good choice, or is it a bad idea to spend money on that instead of getting the actual Clarks desert boot? Are there other good options that you'd recommend to me? Maybe I shouldn't strictly avoid sneakers... it's just that I haven't worn them since I was a kid.

Can't decide between blacked out ToJ1 or black body white sleeves.  I feel like the white sleeves would help to emphasize the shoulders more (a lot of people actually have poor fits with the raglan sleeves on the ToJ1...) and also would rather get a separate black leather (MDR/CWU45).  

 

Going to sound silly, but how wearable is a black varsity with bright white leather sleeves?  In winter and stuff I guess.  What would I wear with it? I'm just used to wearing so many dark/neutral colors, especially for outerwear.  It's like my mind can't even process white sleeves in conjunction with the rest of my outfit mind=blown

Are there any Moncler or Canada Goose outlets in the US?

I don't know what the differences are but I'd just spend a little more and get the original. If you're wearing khakis and polos then clarks are probably a pretty good choice. If you want to ease back into sneakers I'd say go to your favorite brand (nike, converse, adidas, puma, vans, etc) and get the simplest design.

Perhaps a beefroll loafer from rancourt or oak street would replace your rockports.  I think it's hard to recommend cheap shoes, I would save up until you can afford something decent.  Allen edmonds makes some nice (and comfy) stuff, but even at the low end they might cost more than what you had in mind.

How much 'wiggle room' can one expect in a pair of properly fitted Red Wings?

I picked up these the other day (Heritage Round Toe, Briar Oil Slick), and they are pretty much moulded to my feet, even in the toe box. How much can they be expected to give over the months?

If your toes are touching the end, they are probably too small.

They aren't. Just pretty cramped.
