Outsuka. 

 

I don´t know what´s wrong with my feet, but typically when I try to shop for shoes, the sales assistant shoves my foot in the bannock, hands my a UK9 or equal size and then baffels when the shoe just falls of my foot. For some reason I tend to need a full size down from the recommended size for my foot lenght. Probably in part due to a rather narrow heel.

There are those who would maintain that once you cross the line and wear a black suit, details like choice of belt fade into insignificance.

Typically, I would not assume this.

It's at least as likely that your foot could swell a little, and take the fit from "tight enough to raise blisters," to "unbearably painfully tight."

In general, I look for shoes that fit right, from the start. Not too tight, not too loose. A shoe that fits properly from Day 1, is much more likely to continue fitting properly, than an ill-fitting shoe is to "break in." The notion of shoes breaking in isn't quite a myth, but it is a thing both less common and more subtle than many people choose to believe.

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?

Did you dampen the shirt before ironing?

No, I guess I should try that.

What are some brands that have nice quality slim dress pants? I'm lookin for one in black, willing to spend up to 170

Also, whats the best quality dress shoes I can get for under 300? I have small feet so finding the right shoe is hard sometimes(I'm a 7.5 in vans, 7D in red wing, and 7 in Clark DB)

Generally, rather wash them in the machine than hand-wash.

And yeah, dampen works wonders. Try an atomizer (I have a small pocket-fragrance-atomizer which I fill with water, I suppose those water atomizers with a fine spray should work, too). Just damp them, don't make them wet.

Buy pants via this forum on B&S. You will find nwt pants for a fair price as Borrelli, Loro Piana, RLPL so check that out!

For shoes you can go Allen Edmonds, good quality for that price. They also have a sale now on their website :)

I've just started to wear leather soled shoes on a regular basis, but am not sure what to do when the weather is less than perfect. I will be getting myself a set of Swims, but am not sure how anal I need to be about using them. Should I throw them on when the ground is wet even a little bit? Or is it okay to wear leather soled shoes when the ground is a bit wet? Any tips?

post #15807 of 33127
Can you afford to have your shoes resoled? Can you afford another pair? If so, it's only worth worrying about this so much. Leather soles will survive getting wet.

You can always get a pair with rubber soles for rainy weather.

does waterproofing the sole help?

Regarding lapel pins and boutonnières as seen on sportcoats from L.B.M. 1911, Lardini, Isaia and Tombolini. Keep or remove?
