Might anyone know how to remove 'dimples' from the collar of an OCBD Lands End shirt? I have tried ironing with a large amount of pressure, spray water, spray starch, and high steam setting on the iron to no avail. It has been hard to accurately capture this with a picture but perhaps this will appear familiar to someone who may be able to suggest a solution. Thanks.

 

jesPak,

 

 

I'm no expert on the matter; however, it is my opinion that the fusing inside the collar has come loose and created that bubble. I do not think there is much that can be done about that.

 

Best Regards,

I believe there was a thread about this on here... or maybe it was on one of those blogs SF likes. Anyway, to answer your question, yes. It probably won't sit right afterwards, will cost you a great deal of money, and will look worse than before, but it is possible.

Can anyone tell me if these pants can be tapered at all? With there being an elastic cuff at the bottom? 

 

I just got these in the mail today and they clump up at the bottom, and are very loose so they look like MC Hammer pants.

I was thinking about picking up a pair of AE Fifth Aves in brown (I have them in black), but they are so dark in brown that I was wondering if it was worth it. 

 

Would getting the Fifths in brown open up any clothing possibilities, or are they too dark and too formal? Could I wear these with, say, navy dress pants? Probably not chinos, correct?

 

Thank you.

One in Navy certainly can. Especially with its different coloured buttons.
I have one which has brown horn buttons and it goes perfect as an odd jacket.
People will say no as it's part of a suit. But it looks good, so why not.

I was hoping for more comments about the brown ones I posted. Thanks for the reply, though.

I have the brown ones, and I think they are worth getting. They are dark, but not so dark that someone would ever mistake them for black. After a few wears and shines, they start to develop a nice patina. They are also considerably more conservative than the walnut ones and look great with a navy suit.

I think so, especially in navy as powneb noted. To me, the criterion is "is it obviously part of a suit?" Double-breasted and pinstripes jackets are obvious no-no's, but given that this one's a solid color and linen, I don't think anyone's going to know, especially if you change the buttons to, say, dark brown.

I was out thrifting today, and I found these shoes for ten bucks. Can anybody help me by identifying them? As a hint, one of them says "Permasole--the lifetime sole" on the inside of the sole. Would it even be worth it to take it to a shoe repair place to get the loose sole reattached? Thank you so much for your help.

Forgive me if this has been asked before but I've been trying to buy better made clothing recently and I'm wondering why (for example) a $165 button down shirt from Unionmade is worth the extra money vs. say your run of the mill button down that costs 1/3 of the price. I know there is going to be a bit of a cost increase due to it being made in the USA but is the quality really that much better?

Can donegal fabric be worn in the summer?
