I think the two possible work-arounds are pretty clear- change either the boots or pants.  Going with a full break would be another possibility, but if you prefer a slim leg then it would look sloppy. 

 

If you have the look you want, just manually adjust your pant legs when they get hung up.  It's no different than adjusting anything else that gets wonky when you stand up.  Part of the cost of looking sharp.

Hey,

I have been searching for a raincoat and stumbled upon this Herno one on Yoox:

http://www.yoox.com/us/41342156IN/item?dept=men#sts=sr_men80&cod10=41342156IN&sizeId=

Does anybody know anything about it? I.e. what season this might be from, the quality, the fit...or where it is made/if it is authentic? I know some Herno stuff isn't made in Italy, so i didn't want to risk making a mistake. Likewise, the styling is slightly different from other versions I've seen from them, so I wanted to double check.

Thanks!

BADLY WRINKLED SUIT LAPEL FIX?

I purchased an inexpensive (but still substantial in terms of cost) suit jacket from a forum member and he packaged it quite carelessly -it was folded up tightly and crammed into a 9"x12" priority mail envelope.

Despite having been advertised as "like new", the jacket is profoundly wrinkled, particularly the lapels, which are the part that I am concerned with. They are very out-of-shape, with multiple horizontal creases, and will obviously require professional attention. Is there any guarantee that they can be returned to the original shape, or will the jacket always look, in a word, f*cked?

Thanks,
mic

What's the suit made out of? Wool?  If so, it should come out with steaming and ironing with a press cloth.

I came here from /fa/, I don't know how you guys stand with them, but a couple of questions. Do you guys acept fuccbois? Is this place dadcore, gothninja, or is everything accepted? Finally, what general threads do you guys have (I.e. Waywt, cop or not, inspiration, recent cops, and obviously questions that don't require their own thread, threads)?

Take the jacket to your preferred dry cleaning establishment, which I am confident is better than most, and with the owner/manager of which I presume you already have a good business relationship with excellent communication.

Explain the problem. Show the person in question the badly wrinkled lapel. Indicate to said person any special preferences and instructions.

A few days later, your jacket will look just fine.

Well, ideally that's how it would work.

I mean, clothing gets wrinkled. It happens. Plenty of men stuff jackets into grotesquely over-packed overhead storage bins when they fly, and the jackets get wrinkled over the course of their 11 hour flight. Others buy jackets off of eBay, and the jacket shows up in a medium-sized Priority Mail Flat Rate cardboard box. (You're not the only one.) Still others get stuck spending 3 days in the same suit, sleeping in a snowed-in airport, and ultimately covering the final 800 miles of their journey huddled in the rear of a filthy truck. You think that doesn't tend to wrinkle a suit? (Don't ask me about that trip. Please.)

Fortunately, wrinkles can be pressed out. Almost every time.

Well I'm a new member and I have a question. I'm debating on getting the tanner goods workman wallet, and I was just wondering how much it actually sticks out of the back pocket? I would get the tether as well.

Hi, I am a new member and looking for information about the best sales for the best quality clothes throughout the year.  In an order of priority I need: spread collar shirts, ties, navy suit ( I own two ralph lauren blue label), grey suit ( I own one michael kors light grey suit and an evan piccone).

RTW = Ready to wear

MTM = Made to measure.

OTR = ??? (custom made??)

post #20861 of 30369

Off The Rack. So pretty much the opposite of custom made.

xDUDERx,

First, hello and welcome to the forum.  This is the Classic Menswear thread, there is also a Streetwear&Denim thread.  You might find more answers to this question if you try posting it over on that side. 

Second, the amount the wallet will protrude from the back pocket will depend on a number of variables.  (e.g. how large is the person, what brand and style of pants or jeans).  It will be unlikely that someone can answer that unless they have the same wallet, wear the same pants and are of the same stature as you. 

 

Good luck!

Got it, thanks. I was hoping there would be some brilliant solution, but it sounds like I should probably switch to lace-ups. Any recommendations for plain-toe bluchers in a brown/tan/burgundy shade that's on the more casual end of the spectrum (i.e., I won't look like a tool wearing them with slim dark denim)?

I'd recommend checking out the superdenim sub-forum on superfuture. It's also possible that one or more of the affiliates on the Streetwear & Denim side of this forum stocks Tanner Goods wallets and could answer your question.

I'm not able to pull that look off myself; I'm too big- I wear straight/normal jeans and in winter I wear chukkas.  No jeans in summer here! 

To Boot New York has some modern cuts that might suit you.  I think AE has a handful of decent casual shoes that would work with jeans.  I'm not sure but Bedstu and Clarks used to sometimes have a dress shoe redone in a more casual style. 

Red Wing has a plain toe shoe that is nice, but I think it has tread that might screw up the look. 

 

Sorry man.  I wish I had something more for you.
