It either signifies a manufacturer cheaping out or an informal sport shirt.

anyone know where I can get a pair of shoe trees for small shoes? AE doesn't make trees that fit their own size 6 shoes.

These go down to a UK 5.5.  A lot of conversions make the difference between UK and US a whole number, but in my experience it's less - I think US sizes tend to incorporate more "wiggle room".  Either way, these are sprung trees so might squeeze into a slightly smaller shoe.  If it's really tight, then it might be best only to leave them in for a day after wearing, rather than all the time.
 
I use these trees myself for a lot of my shoes, as they're crazy cheap.  Unpolished trees are best for removing moisture, and cedar also deodorises your shoes, and probably repels moths from your wardrobe too!  Worth a try for that price anyway.

I'm not sure what color belt to pair with the Neumok Red Leather (4075) worn with brown chinos or possibly black trousers. With such a stand out color in the shoe does one still match to their belt?

I am trying to update my spring/summer collection this year. All I have are a few good shorts (madras etc.), Nudie jeans, solid plain tees (white etc.), white bucks, suede chukkas, along with my 5 AE shoes.

I live in Toronto, Canada and sweat pretty easily. Basically I am trying to find out what sort of pants should I be adding to my wardrobe for the warm season and what type of shirts? Should I be getting lightweight wool or linen instead? What sort of shirts go with linen pants? Linen or cotton shirts? What pants go with linen shirts? Or should I just be rolling up the sleeves of my 100% cotton shirts?

Please recommend an alterations tailor in or near northern VA.

 

Thank you...

Lapels speak generally to formality more than to body weight or type. Peak lapels are the most formal lapels (you see them on dinner jackets for both white and black tie for example).  So to answer, yes they are perfectly acceptable and in fact, if the coat is a double breasted, it would be required (imo).

I did search, but I couldn't seem to find a definitive answer cause my inquiry seems a bit too specific (I'm really picky shog[1].gif)

I need some wool trousers for my internship this summer, and I had a couple questions.

I'm a really skinny asian college student, and so most of the pants I've found don't seem to fit me as slim as I want.
I'm looking for something with a 32 in waist, 10-10.5 inch rise, 11-11.5 inch thighs, a 7-7.5 inch opening, and 100% wool under $150 a piece. I know my measurements are a little weird, specially for the waist size, but I have a naturally thick waist (bone structure I guess), even though I'm pretty lean.

I know that my measurements aren't something I can easily find, so I was planning on just buying a pair of landend's tailored fit wool pants (since they're only $70) and just getting them altered.

My question was, how much can I alter these pants before they start getting weird? Can I slim down the legs 2 inches or so and also shorten the rise by 0.5-1 inch?

Thanks for all the help!

The real problem i find with slimming pants too far down is that when you walk, since the top of the pant is slimmer, there is no room for your knee to move in the pant and it ends up pulling the bottom of the pants up with every step. But this may not be the case here. I have slimmed pants by around 2 inches with no problem. I suggest going to the tailor and have him slim up the pants with pins and then walk around and see if it works. If it does, i do not think that it would look weird. 
 

Also, have you thought about MTM. In that price range you can find a few different companies that (i hear) would do a decent job (luxire is an example, http://luxire.com/collections/pants).
