How do I remove it? I've dry cleaned this suit twice or three times this year already, so I would prefer to not do it again, but obviously would if I had no other choice.

a very general question, if i have a suit jacket fits me fine but the waist is too slim, can it be altered, i need to take it out about 1-2 inches, is that possible?

Yes, I've had this done many times.

Depends on how much you want to let out. There is usually about 1 to 1.5 inches of extra fabric built into the side seams. Every jacket model is different.

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?

The shirt looks fine to me.

I bought an ISAIA jacket size 48 (normally i wear 50), measurement seems OK but the waist. Thank you very much for the quick and clear answer.

Merry Christmas,
Andrew

I've been looking for a good Navy Birdseye Suit but I am having some problems finding some. I see Brooks Brothers doesn't have one, I was hoping so with that sale. Any recommendations?

If the jacket is unlined or half lined, you see how much material is in the side seam. Measure that across and you'll be able to estimate how much room you have.

If it's lined, you'll have to ask a tailor

Going to do a blind buy from Herring shoes

Which of these Church lasts (73, 93, 100) looks most similar to the Crockett Draycott on the far right?

My foot needs a very wide toebox, especially in the small toe area. Draycott fits nicely, no blisters.

It looks to my eyes like the 93 last is the narrowest.

Width order goes: 100 > 73 > 93

93 looks the most similiar but 73 looks to be a good fit though.

One of their Saxxon fabrics is what I consider to be a birdseye. It may be the one that they call "Tic" in their descriptions, but I can't see enough detail in their photos to be sure. It is a dark blue which moves toward a slate blue, but is not as dark as BB navy.

I've got a pair of Velvet Stubbs and Wootton smoking slippers...is there any product that can be used to keep them clean? I know Scotchgard isn't a good idea for velvet. I've also got a pair made out of taprestry, like what you hang on a wall, basically carpet...can I scotchgard those or use a dif product?

They're okay if you are tall, since they make the wearer look shorter. They're not as classic and timeless as the 2-button.

Thanks... Can't I get the tailor to make it look like a 2 button though? Have some suits on sale at my store and was thinking bout grabbing a dark gray 3 button and a 2 button navy
