I have seen the drop number used with a sports coat. Makes no sense.

I need a cobbler recommendation in London.
One of my pair of goodyear-welted dress shoes has a hole in the sole and I need it to be repaired.
I am terribly afraid to get it repaired wrongly by someone who has no idea what he is doing.

If your shoes are English made you could contact the maker and arrange for the replacement of the sole. This may be more expensive than using a regular cobbler but it promises your shoes will be perfect when you get them back.

I contacted the maker and it is an "independent" brand, they recommended me to go to a cobbler.

A sportcoat still goes around your waist. A higher drop sportcoat may have more waist suppression.

Is taking out the cloth inside the sleeve the only way to increase sleeve length? I have heard it is possible to bring down the whole arm from the shoulder. Is that true?

Only if there is seam allowance at the shoulder. There's likely to be more at the end of the sleeve.

Hi guys! First post. I'm an attorney.
1. I need a light, casual, stylish jacket for Las Vegas winters and occasional travel to San Francisco for work. Water proof would therefore be useful. Brands appreciated.
2. What business-ish jacket can I buy that will go with any pants? Dark blazer? I'm talking slacks, dockers, etc. I need an emergency jacket to hang behind the door in an otherwise business casual office.

1. Trenchcoat fits the bill.

2. Navy Blazer would be my choice. Unless you wear jeans/navy pants a lot, then Navy looks weird.

It's also more expensive if you're taking the entire arm off like that. It's useful if you have working cuffs, though.

Hi,

 

Im looking to buy a dark brown leather belt to wear with these dark brown boat shoes:

 

 

1000

 

they look black in the picture but are a dark brown,

 

 

So im stuck between a smoot hleather belt or a plaited leather belt, these two:

 

 

1000

 

 

So my question is which of these two belts is most versatile and suitable for chinos, cargos, and denim jeans , all worn with the above brown boat shoes

 

Also, ive seen dark brown belts with a gold/brass buckle, and some with a silver buckle, which do you prefer on a dark brown leather belt?

 

 

thanks :)

That makes pefect sense. So the drop is a reference to the waist size of the suit jacket, not the waist size of the trousers?

No. Its your chest size minus your waist size.

Get the plain belt. Brass vs. silver buckle is largely a matter of personal preference.
