Anything that can be washed in warm water will be safe to wash in cold, though the warmer the water, the better it generally is at removing stains. The standard advice is to wash things with water as hot as you can use safely with everything in the load. Though there are some detergents these days being made specifically to work better in cold water, so you may be able to get the best of both worlds.

I once saw someone make a forum post that had a list of details to consider when getting a MTM suit made. Has anyone bookmarked something like that and could link me? Thanks.

What tie colors (and PS colors for that matter) go well with a pink shirt (assuming either charcoal or navy suit)?

What is everyone's opinion on the look of these Land's End chelsea boots? I'm considering a pair of chesea boots, because of the laceless and boot aesthetics, but are these Land's End ones decent? I want to avoid square toes, and I have a preference towards shoes/boots that are somewhat pointed.

I probably won't be getting them anyway, because of the price. I'm a low-budget shopper, mainly.

Tailoring question - I'm aware that it's possible to have the back vents of a jacket sewn up to make it ventless, is it possible to sew up a single vent and then add side vents instead? If so, would this be an expensive alteration?

Also, I should add the jacket in question is a size too big for me. I've already had it taken in, though I don't know whether the excess material was left or not. I'm between two minds on whether to have it shortened and wondering whether to attempt some vent surgery at the same time - I don't mind single vents but this one isn't sitting well at the back and not because of tightness - if anything it's still a bit loose but I trust the tailor's judgment on how much it needed taking in.

Normally it's not possible to add vents; if its been taken in then the extra fabric might become enough to form a vent, but probably not.

Probably that there's enough fabric inside the sleeve to let it out up to 2 inches.

Those boots have already been featured on put this on and talked about on the forum. See : http://putthison.com/post/10797368619/folks-are-always-asking-me-about-more-affordable

During 40% off sales (which seems to get rarer nowadays), it might be worth it. Otherwise, as a low-budget shopper, I would be looking at eBay or B&S for a better item at a similar price point.

+2 normally means that the sleeve length is two inches longer than the brand's usual length. For example, on the Thomas Pink website the long sleeve shirts are typically two inches longer than the standard length

Muchos gracias.

That's probably too casual for a navy suit, regardless of the event. Large, colorful pattern and a button-down collar.
Something like this would be a bit better.
