That depends on a lot of things- I only polish my shoes a couple of times per year.

However, I have a dozen pairs in my rotation, I don't wear a pair two days in a row, I have a couple of pairs of foul weather shoes and I hit each pair with the brush before I put them away.

Question(s) for the New Yorkers

 

Good alterations tailor in the soho/tribeca area?  If not available, who's closest to soho that can slim pants and do other simple alterations competently? 

 

Is Bambhis the move with regard to complicated work on high end jackets?  I've got a mtm jacket that needs some love after getting into summer shape.

One more Ebay related question (purchased the last one you all gave me info on so thanks for that again!)...these AEs look a little weird to me...either he polished them too much or they are bent odd...not sure if it's the lighting or odd/bad wea or if the cat didn't tree 'em:

What do you all think?

Those look like they had the old spring style trees like these-



They will sometimes give the shoe an odd shape.

Gross...do you think they can be re worked with a proper shoe tree or are they done?

I'd keep looking.

There's always a pair of park aves for $100. It's not a bad deal, but it's not a once in a lifetime deal, either.

Awesome...thanks for the reality check...I figured as much, just wanted it confirmed by someone that's a little more seasoned....

The pink is brighter than the picture and I'm not sure what type of tie/s to wear with it???

Doesn't need to be trendy, just formal!!

Thanks in advance.

Hi there, I have fallen with love with a vintage coat on eBay. Problem is, I don't know if it will fit. I normally wear a mens XXL in most items, and the coat is a tagged 46. This means it would be iffy. But the measurements the seller gives leads me to think it might fit, as they are quite generous (50+ for waist and hips).

Can anyone give me an advice about whether this would fit? I asked my seamstress Grandmother about the weird sizing, but she didn't have a clue.

Any help would be REALLY appreciated!

Here is the seller's description, for your reference

 

 

 

It is marked size 46, measures a 58 inch chest, 56 inch hips, and it is 36 inches long down the center back from the neck seam. It is in great condition, the most minor of flaws being pencil eraser sized balding spots, one on the back of each sleeve. Shipping will be $16.85.

Cross post from another thread:

I recently purchased a Paul Smith London suit. Fits great and is half canvassed. But I was curious as to who makes the suits for Paul Smith London. Here's the pic of the inner tag:




Here is a tag from a different Paul Smith suit (photo credit to Pocketcircle):



Who are these companies?

My quick question: Is wearing a cotton blazer (such as this) in a business casual workplace acceptable? Or should it be left for casual wear only?

I am looking for a messenger bag and a weekender.
Buget is between $250/200€ and $500/400€.

Any brands I should be looking at? Filson is an obvious one, any other brands?

A solid navy blue tie or a red tie with a hint of blue in it could work.  I would avoid stripes unless you can find a striped tie where the stripes are fairly wide apart. You can see more insight into this at my men's formalwear fashion blog: http://suitupdressup.wordpress.com

Any suggestions for sweaters of good value? Good value in this context meaning good cloth (pref. wool) and decent construction for 200$ pr. sweater. If the sweater is very durable, I might stretch my limit to 300$. 

 

Slim fit and no details. (Nothing larger/more noticeable than the PRL logo on their sweaters/other items) Anyone know of any manufacturers that spring to mind that present decent/good value? If possible, with regular shipping to Europe/Norway, but I can manage a proxy as well.

 

I've had some PRL sweaters, but they really don't hold up well. At least that's my experience with both thin merino wool ones and somewhat thicker wool sweaters I have had from PRL. Also tried sweaters from HM and different local vendors here in my hometown, but they rarely hold up nicely.

 

I will try to get a hold of the Inverallan 6A as I think that's a nice sweater of good quality, but any other good suggestions?
