1. What is a "waterfall sleeve"?

2. To what do "open channel" and "heel nail" refer in the context of shoes?

post #19247 of 30718
1) Spalla camiccia, A technique where a lot of fabric is sewed into a smalll sleeve head creating a rippling effect in the shoulder. 2) Open channel means the stitching on the sole of the shoe is exposed. Heel nails refers to the nails in the heel of a well-made shoe.

I mean, it's your question; you ought to be the one to do the heavy lifting. smile.gif
But fwiw, I own lots of Allen Edmonds shoes. I'm pretty happy with them. I own no Grensons. So that's my bias. Then again, I have no idea where you live (UK or US), how old you are, what your shoe budget's like, which of your current shoes you like, whether you have an unusually large/small or wide/narrow foot, what your specific dress shoe and casual shoe needs are, etc. So just because I like Allen Edmonds does not necessarily mean that it'd be the better choice for you.

Okay, so I ordered these chino's from Jcrew, they are a 32 length because that's the size I wear my jeans. Anyways, these seem a little short to me, or maybe I dont know how chino's should fit because I've never had any.


Could I get some opinions, are these too short?

Length looks ok. However...I would not wear that combo.

The elbows of the jacket became sort of greasy and lustrous with time while the other parts of the jacket are clean. What is the best way to clear the elbow area?

What kind of jacket? Fabric? If you are talking about a wool sport jacket and the elbows are shiny, it is time to get a new jacket.

 Anyone know how much I should expect a cobbler to take to fix this?

Stitching of my 5 year old boots are getting slightly bad.

 

Thanks,

Looks a tad short, but may be because of the boots.

I accidentally ordered the wrong dress shirt: I placed an order for one with fine stripe motif instead of a plain light-blue one. I am now considering whether or not I should correct mistake, or if such a dress shirt would be an excellent addition to my wardrobe - which, at the moment, only contains plain, motif-less dress shirts.

I am worried that it looks too much like a pajamas, and that it will stand out too much at my corporate place of employment where tie and jacket are obligatory. I am starting there after New Year's, so I don't actually know how "brave" the other employees are in terms of dress shirts.

 

What do you guys think?

Can anyone recommend a place to find a thick/cable knit turtleneck sweater? Or is there a reason most of them seem to be in the women's section...
