My son's Bar Mitzvah is in about a month and I'd like to buy a couple of suits. The event has two parts; both formal, one is in the evening and one is the afternoon. I was wondering if I should go with darker colors for the evening event and lighter colors for the afternoon event? Any suggestions would be helpful.

I don't think that is needed. I say charcoal, and navy are suitable for most any occasions. Much more versatile.

Stubbs and Wooten. Del Toro. Rugby RL. Might not be the exact shoes but a good place to start.

PS. Those are house shoes.

Banana Republic's return policy specifies that they only take returns up to 60 days past the purchase date. If I bring my items to the store, will they actually enforce this and not give me a return?

Ideally I'd like a lifetime heal replacement warranty.  Thanks for your help, and sosrry for the typos -bt keyboard is slow.

FWIW the Iron Ranger is a narrow boot. It's not a cap toe, but the Wolverine 1000 Mile boot is another to consider and IMO is more versatile. It is still a work boot, but IMO can be worn a bit dressier than the Iron Ranger. I have both and the IR is rougher and cruder than the 1000 Mile.

Why a heel warranty? I bought several pairs of plastic heel taps from ebay. Put those on the heel, wear until almost worn out, replace. That's my heel warranty.

Give it a try and hope for a non-confrontational type BR employee. That is a pretty lousy return policy BTW.

Also, these are great. I never tried their pant hangers, but their suit hangers are perfectly fine.

Do the ones you use look like this? 350

Hi SF, need your help desperately for tailoring advice!

So I nabbed this suit off eBay recently, and the seller's measurements were a tad misleading and I ended up getting a size too large of a suit. I was wondering how feasible it was to make this suit workable. What do y'all think about the fit right now? I'm thinking if I leave the shoulders alone I could at least take in the waist a little bit and slim the sleeves, but looking at the photos now they look semi-passable, with just a wide shoulder.

Thoughts? I'm way more used to wearing soft-shouldered suits, and this is rather new for me. Thanks all!

(Also, all you 40Rs out there, if this doesn't work out for me... wink.gif )

Bonobos is having a sale currently and I came accross these trousers labled as "wedding trousers." I have tried looking around online and couldn't find a definition of this type of pants. Assuming they are same as the other pants on sale (brushed twill), is there any difference since they do not seem formal to warrant a "wedding trousers" moniker.

Desu describes these trousers a having a single forward pleat.  Is this the same as a scissor pleat?tumblr_ltsxmalWDb1qad1efo1_1280.jpg?AWSAccessKeyId=AKIAJ6IHWSU3BX3X7X3Q&Expires=1319988030&Signature=PGxtF0%2FLmgzDoAkHZL6m9fQEzi8%3D

You mean apart from the fact that it's ultra tacky?

Yes which is the reason why I'm looking to see how much it's worth so I can sell it. I got it as a gift
