Outta my snack bracket but I'd def pop in if in the area anyway..
post #4082 of 4449
Talking about poping in on a random trunk shows, yesterday I popped in on Kiton event in Robert Jones. No other customer was in there at the moment.

Turns out, Kiton's tailor who does measurements (who comes for the event from NYC) is my countryman, we grew up in the same city, roughly same age :-)

I had a good chat with him, so now I'm an expert on Napoleatan tailoring, and a friend with a Kiton guy wink.gif
I tried bunch of jackets, fabrics are fucking amazing. If only I had $10K lying around smile.gif

Mink oil? Venetion shoe cream? I have nano protector as well. How do you find it in repelling the salt on your suede? How often do you re-apply it during winter? The salesman I bought it from told me to re-apply every two weeks which seems a little excessive.

Call me crazy, but I may brave the crowds to check out Uniqlo tomorrow. 

I don't think I'll get anything there (unless any of the Uniqlo U stuff catches my eye) but I'll try and nail down my fit. I pray that the sleeves on their knitwear and pullovers don't drape over my hands like 87% of the other brands that I like. :bored: Granted, I know that it'll be North American sizing so I'm trying not to keep my hopes up.

With Uniqlo I was able to size down in NA sizing after going with my usual size at HK Uniqlo.

Cmon- starch v collar stays. Anybody? One thing I'm thinkin is less time fiddlin around with the collars every morn. Or does starch decrease the life of the shirt?

Honestly, neither. What's the need? With decent quality shirts and nice long collar points I've personally never desired more rigidity.

Are we, by chance, talking about open collar without a tie? If so, just go with a button-down. (Quite literally, a collar stay.)
post #4092 of 4449
Yeah Imanotieguy. Without the stays (or starch I'm imagining maybe) and w two buttons undone you don't get the nice pop.

I always kept button-collars for Friday blazers/slacks only(?)

Starch is a great way to get shiny collars. Plus this isn't 1920. Just buy some more stays.
post #4095 of 4449
starch isn't the main enemy, but heat and excessive pressing will get you shiny collars with the quickness.

That said, I would follower@RogerP's advice and get more collar stays...........problem solved!
