I have these RLBL shoes and they...tend to look black too.

So I is called Neiman Marcus and tolds them that I want to return my suit and they was like, "If it has been altered, then it cannot be returned." But then I is called another store and she was like, "Bring it in and let's see what we can do." 

 

I is not having a panic attack or a meltdown. Just trying to right the ship if it is possible. If the suit has problems then I is should return it. But unfortunately, it appears I is cannot return it.

If you've altered it, no.  

 

Can you return the shoes?  They are nice enough, but an odd combination (formal-ish captoe, but a derby), and they look like you had to size up and now they're a bit long.  Close?

I keep coming back to my weight change but it fits well now. This was taken awhile ago. I didn't know your feet got smaller when you lost weight.

It is one man's opinion but I believe he is pretty darn reputable. Either way, I am stuck with the suit but will just enjoy it.

You cannot make these shoulders wider. You cannot just add pads unless there is space to accommodate them and you need the pad to fill in that space.

Dark brown River II austerity brogue:



Those are pretty dark. Are they supposed to "lighten up" over time with exposure to the elements and the sun? I noticed that happened on a pair of dark brown calf shoes I owned

Thoughts on this SC?  Does this seem like an orphan jacket?  Also, about the lapels, is the notch too high?

Don't like that one, JR. Very blah American style. Baggy cut, high button point.

Go with a higher end maker. Those tend to be better. See the list I posted a few pages back this morning

Also I prefer blazers with patch pockets.

Thoughts on this one too?

 

I know I'm supposed to be staying away from patterns but its difficult. This and the above SC are listed under $200.

JR:  you're a Chicago guy.  Have you gone over to Neiman Marcus, Saks or Nordstrom to try on any of these brands to see what fits you best?  Do you know the measurements for a good fitting jacket to help determine whether something on EBay will fit well?

I wouldn't set foot in any of those places personally.  Nothing against those that do, it's just not my world or budget.  I know my measurements pretty well after a few mishaps.  :D   I've already assessed the measurements of what I'm postingand and they fit me.  It's just a matter of, am I buying the same country crap or a decent piece.
