I have a question in relation to MTM suits. If I have a 38" chest, roughly how many inches should I add to get a well fitting suit jacket chest measurement?

Thanks!

Clearances should be the tailor's job, not yours. Don't force a tailor let them make the call.

Thanks Patrick. This is for an Indochino suit, so a tailor will not really be involved. Based on my 38" chest measurement, they gave me a jacket that is 41.5" around the chest, which is a little too tight. I was asking more from a knowledge perspective.

Basically the answer depends on the style of the cut. There is no rule, some tailors prefer more, some less.

+1. 3-4" is pretty standard though, so that is well within the realm of reason.

Is there a name for a wool overcoat with fur-faced lapels?

Has anyone tried the Mr. B's line (from Aldo) Chastin shoes? They look like white bucks and are on sale right now...have a leather sole too...not sure about the brand or this shoe from them in particular...google mr. b chastin and you can find it...in class right now so I can't get too distracted looking for the link.

Okay, another quickie - is there ever a reason to have the DB buttons on a suit not be ornamental besides some lingering OCD desire to have them do something?

I am planning on getting the Men's Authentic Pea Coat from Sterlingwear but i cant decide between getting the form fitting jacket or sizing up as I don't know how tight the form fitting jacket is going to be. I am planning on wearing light sweaters and t-shirts underneath this coat and on certain events a suit and a shirt as well. So with this information should I get a form fitting jacket or the bigger version?

 

Also they asked me to take a jacket that fits me well and measure the length from the top edge to the bottom edge of the jacket. Unfortunately I don't own jackets that fits met well in terms of length so i was wondering if there is any other way of me measuring the length?

Where can I find a quality navy corduroy backpack?

So I wanted to replace the crepe soles on a pair of Faconnable shoes with a Vibram mini-lug sole.  The catch is that I want white soles, the same as this shoe (yes it is a vibram sole)

 

 

 

Vibram USA says that they do not have them in the catalogue nor do they supply them and as far as the guy could tell, Vibram Italy doesn't either.  I was told that the soles are made in China but China is a big place.  I have a buddy that is in Taipei so I guess I have access to items in the Chinese market but I'd rather just hit somebody's website and have them shipped to me.

I think that may be the coolest tie I've ever seen.

Or you could just leave them on top of the radiator for a week. They'll be just as ruined, and it won't cost a dime. biggrin.gif

Two quick cleaning questions:

 

i) I spilled dark beer on a brand new 100% silk tie. How should I go about repairing it? At this stage, taking it to a cleaner is not an option, because I need to go right back and wear it soon. 

 

ii) What's the best method to clean cashmere socks? They've really picked up an odor after about 5-6 wears. I was thinking of lightly spraying Fabreeze into the air and letting the mist settle on the socks.
