post #18421 of 33081

Has anyone in NYC been to LNC post-Sandy? I dropped off a suit on 10/20 and was told I'd be getting a call from him, still haven't heard back, tried calling several times over the weekend with no answer. I'm wondering if maybe LNC is still closed.

do all Zegna Couture coats/suits have a collar tag to show where they are made in? I have seen some on ebay without a collar tag but everything else checks out fine. 

 

was wondering if its a fake or not.

 

Thanks!

How many of you iron a crease into your shirt collars?  I love the really nice roll some people get on their colors with ties, however every time I get my shirts back from the dry cleaner they iron a pretty decent crease in the collar, which makes the collar look crisper but not sure if the roll is the same that way, nor if its good for the shirt. As a side note, I typically hand wash and press shirts myself.

How does this shirt fit? It feels just a little snug around the midsection, but I think it looks OK there so I'm not sure. Are the sleeves a bit too long?

It would be easier to tell if the images showed the shirt tucked in. It's hard to tell when it's untucked.

How tight should a shoe tree fit in a pair of shoes? I get the feeling I'm pushing too hard on the springs to get the trees in.

Sleeves appear long, and the shirt overall appears a bit short. Neither of these are too bad however, as long as the shirt stays tucked in. How does the neck fit when buttoned?

Snug, but not like it's stretching the shoe. Is it just sticking a bit on the leather, or are you really having to wedge it down in there?

I don't know why I did that. Here you go:

The neck is fine. That's the only part I feel good about judging by myself.

Does 1 size down in EEE equal to 1 size up in D? i.e. 10D = 9EEE?

depends on width of your feet

Indeed, the sleeves are a bit long but the fit seems perfect to me. I like it that way. Not too tight but definitely not too wide!

It doesn't really require too much strength to push it down but I got the split toe trees so I'm worried it might stretch out the front width wise. I've attached a photo to show how much is sticking out without pushing it in. The trees are Woodlore size L and the shoes are a 44 (UK 10).

Generally, no.

Of course, as with most "would it fit me" type questions, the only way to know for sure is to try it on.

I do know that I typically wear a 13EEE. I cannot comfortably wear a 14D. And while I've never tried on a pair of 12 EEEEE shoes (which I have seen advertised now and then), I'm pretty sure they wouldn't fit well, either.

If you're asking because you've found a pair of shoes you really want, but they're not available in your actual size so you're wondering if you could size up or size down in order to get a fit more or less equivalent, I'd urge you not to buy the shoes.
