But wouldn't the navy one clash with the indigo colour of the jeans? (dark blue on dark blue and all that)

BTW, I've just got measured on the weight scale. I've lost 2 more pounds. I'm 37 lbs. lighter and now 330 lbs. Getting better folks. What do you think of me losing two more pounds this week?

Probably best discussed in the Health forum, mate.

I have two Harvie and Hudson dress shirts that I recently noticed were really creased up. I had hand washed both of them and hung them to dry, and I must have not been careful because they each are incredibly creased up with lines. I tried to iron one this morning and had little luck getting it smooth. 

 

Can I fix this issue simply by throwing it in the washing machine and washing them in cold water? I really hope the shirts aren't ruined.

Anyone who are familiar with Barba Napoli's sizing of shirts? I already own a Barba polo shirt, sized to 48 EU, will 16 US fit me nicely, or do I have to go down to a 15.75?

I know a navy blue blazer is the classic colour, but it feels like a khaki blazer would be more appropriate in this case?
*** Ideally this should be as versatile as possible, across a full range of colours (not just the jean colours that I currently have)

 

White is versatile like heck, love my white sc nod[1].gif

Maybe someone knows a little about jewellry.

I've been given one ring and one brooch. Both are stamped as 585 gold. I won't get to visit a jeweller to estimate them in the next few weeks, so I figured maybe someone of you could give a first rough estimate on whether they're likely junk other than the gold value (which I guess tongue.gif) or not.

Ring, 6.3 grams.

I've lurked here for some time and have learned quite a bit. I'd like to purchase my first good suit and I'm going the ebay/used route as my financial standing does not match my tastes/desires. I missed a really wonderful Armani recently by a few dollars just yesterday so now I'm looking agressively. I've come across the following listing: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=190696415464

 

While the authenticity is all but certain and the measurements seem perfect, I'm trying to decide if I like the fabric and, furthermore, if this model is excessively outdated. I *think* I like it but something is giving me a bit of pause, but I suspect that might be because I was expecting to find a charcoal or subtle pinstripe suit. Oh esteemed style gurus, what say you?

I imagine an EU48 will have something of a neck around 15.5-15.75.

How snugg should a shoe fit when I try it on in the store?

 

If I can feel the shoe fit against the heel when I stand and feel it tighten up against the heel when I walk, is that I sign that I should size up half a size?

Depends on your feet and preference and shoe material (type of leather). Those of us with toughened feet due to wearing leather shoes for a good amount of time can be perfectly comfy in an initially snug fitting shoe. Tenderfoots may need to size up as you feet will get larger during the day.

This is so true. I like 'em tight to almost painful when brand new. After a dozen wears or so they become just snug - which how I like them.

But I've been wearing leather shoes my whole life. I grew up in the era when properly fitted leather shoes were considered important to the growth of healthy feet. Don't know if there is any truth to this or not - but my feet are certainly well adapted to leather shoes.

Can't relate to the young men of today who approach a leather soled shoe as if it is some exotic beast from a far away land.

The younguns call them "hard bottoms" as if they hurt to wear.
