Then you're limited to only a few choices. SE/BiG are the only ones I know of in NY but there could be others (doubtful, but it's always a possibility). Or you could break it into two jobs if you're so inclined (taper and hem it to just one inch or so longer than you want without a chainstitched hem at whatever tailor you use and then take it to SENY/BiG to get it chainstitched)

Hey, I was thinking of buying this coat:

http://www.usnavypeacoat.com/Product...ridge&CartID=1

How much could I expect to have it tailored? If the shoulder was an inch too big, is that fixable for a decent price or should I pretty much leave shoulders alone? Would slimming in the waist/chest be possible with a thick lined wool coat like this, or would I need it to fit OTR?

Thanks a lot for your advice and opinions...I am kind of new to this sort of thing but know it is an area you guy probably have a lot of experience in it.

Question about boot/shoe care: I bought a pair of these sebago's (http://www.fourhorsemen.ca/blog/2009...ghthouse-boot/) in the black/silver finish now as I've now found out the blackness is meant to rub off and expose the silvery brown colour underneath. I however want the boots to stay black and I'm assuming if I'd treated them with something it would have prevented this from already happening. So how would I go about re-blackening the leather and then sealing it? polish or something?

This one seems to go against what most on here want from raw denim jeans . I recently bought my first pair and really want to keep the dark crisp look to them , really dont want creases and fading

I know your gonna tell me im defeating the object but.............
Is it just a case of wearing them less or has anyone got any suggestions to keep that newish look

Cheers

Don't buy raw jeans, buy dark washed jeans

For a lot of people here it's price point. In my experience it's easier to discern quality after owning, washing, wearing, etc a pair for a while.. obviously, because that's when not-so-great jeans show signs of wear/tear. Just looking for features like tailored belt loops, selvedge, chainstitching could mislead you. But anyway, I expect well-constructed jeans to be made with heavy wear in mind. Thick, heavy and tightly woven denim, reinforced stress areas, narrow stitching w/ more durable thread. That's a little harder to distinguish but the cheaper stuff sticks out to me, I think lower quality stuff is a lot more easy to distinguish.

I'll be going to a dinner party some sort this saturday and it's formal (though not a black tie event). I have the following options.

Light blue OCBD, Light Purple OCBD, Light Blue Fine cloth buttondown

Only one tie - Navy/green knit

Black wingtips with mauve laces.

Suit color - To be determined.

With the options I have, what color suit should I get? There's the option of black, charcoal or dark navy. I'm only 18 so I'll be getting something cheap, but functional so I could wear it for interviews too (which is why I'm not too liking the black). I was thinking a dark navy suit, with either the purple or the blue button down, the knit tie (to make the fit less formal) and maybe even a green PS. How's that sound?
