Where can i find a denim shirt with a rounded white collar?

If I wear a sz 30 in the N&F Slim Guy, a sz 30 in the Earnest Sewn Fulton, a 30-31 in standard office pants, and EU 48 in the slimmest of the slim Italian pants, what size should I buy in the LVC 1947 501 in the rigid denim? Would 31 work, and what kind of shrinkage can I expect?

There are 103432 threads on this, and just can't go through them all right now

My knowledge of high-end suiting/shirting is sketchy at best, but I would try Andrisen Morton in Cherry Creek North (http://www.andrisenmorton.com/).

I'm 22 year old university student, and I'm going to buy my first navy blue blazer seeing as I hear so much about them being a "staple" in a man's wardrobe.

It needs to be versatile enough to appropriate for lectures during the day or a party at night, depending on the rest of the outfit obviously.

1) What material should I go for? Something machine washable would obviously suit me better being a student, I can't afford dry cleaning.

2) What sort of lapel?

3) How many buttons? I'm 5'7 and very slim, if that makes a difference. Would a one-button blazer a solid choice in this case?

4) Does it matter how many buttons are on the cuff?

5) Any other tips you want to throw my way...

Thanks!

I'm going to assume you want to be more conservative about this.

1) If you're going for your first blazer/sportcoat you need it to be wool. Which will not be machine washable. Suck it up and deal. Besides, you'll only really be dry cleaning it once or twice a season.

2) Notch.

3) One is super fashiony unless you know exactly what you're doing. Two or three.

4) No. Well, unless there's like 20...

5) Feel free to break rules 2-4, but seriously, stick to 1.

What is typically the maximum amount of material a tailor can take in on a pair of denim jeans? Can you go down a size or two without ruining the look of them?

I would go two buttons as it never goes out of style and do wool.

Just got a pair of Alden Indy boots in brown Chromexcel (pics/thread here), and wanted to condition and weatherproof them. It's winter, so there's snow and salt and water, and I'd like to protect these guys as best I can. My instinct was to just stick some regular Lexol Leather Conditioner on it, but am slightly hesitant since it's Horween Chromexcel which is a kind of leather I know nothing about (Horween's website isn't exactly helpful in this regard), and is high quality/expensive. So I thought I'd use the non-darkening Neatsfoot Lexol Leather Conditioner instead. Is either one recommended for Chromexcel? I also don't want to darken the white stitching on the shoe's apron. I'd also be interested in your thoughts on using Meltonian Water & Stain Protector. Thanks!

Rule of thumb for the '47 cut is size up one.

If you're dealing with serious winter and salt conditions, a good quality mink oil is superb protection, and my chromexcel boots took to it beautifully It won't darken excel or the contrast stitching, works well with the satin finish of the leather, etc. I can't speak to those other brands, but they probably have the same oil/wax combinations, with emmolients, like Mink oil. My excel boots after about a dozen applications of mink oil (dark areas are from dirt, indigo and one small and local application of brown polish for some deep scuffs, which I regret):
