Received a couple ties in the mail - somewhat wrinkled  - is there a way to fix this, or should I try to return? Thanks!

OK, this one has to be a joke ^^^!!!!!

 

(Ask yourself "how do I normally remove wrinkles from my clothes?"  I expect the answer is "return them to the point of purchase".  Probably.)

Mimo-

Go ahead and give the real Mimo answer- something about how it should be lit aflame because that would simultaneously remove the wrinkles and keep me from having to look at it ever again. 

 

 

JesPak-

Take a normal white t-shirt and lay it over the tie- lightly run a medium hot iron over it in quick strokes so you don't scorch the fabric.  If that doesn't work surge with a little steam and repeat.  Take your time and don't let it get too hot or you'll ruin it.

^ I'll let Mimo have the glory on this one (unless he's already put Michael on ignore). At least he's graduated to the use of spoilers

I posted this in the Streetwear and Denim section, thought I would post here as well in case someone can help.  Thanks for reading!

 

 

 

I have a cream colored Diesel leather moto jacket that I tried to condition myself recently, with less than stellar results.  The leather darkened considerably and the finish, which used to be 100% even across the jacket, is no longer consistent.  The jacket looks ok, in a weathered kind of way, but I much preferred the look of the cream color, which was unique.

 

I am looking around for a good, recommended leather cleaning service that may be able to to clean/recondition this leather jacket.  I understand it may not be possible to get it 100% back to where it was, but I'm hopeful that a professional service who has dealt with this kind of thing before can get close.  Also, since it was natural/cream color, bleaching it shouldn't be a problem.

 

Any recommendations out there?  Online/mail order is fine, but if there happens to be one in Northern VA, that would be great.  

 

I found these through google, it would also be great to know if anyone here can recommend any of these guys due to positive past experience.

Any other recommendations or endorsements are welcome.

Hi, guys. 

 

I just bought a sportscoat from Suit Supply, but I am not sure if it is going to fit or not.

However I am going to need a blazer for next week, and unfortunately I don't have many blazers in my wardrobe.

Is it bad to use a suit jacket as a blazer? I am going to use this grey suit jacket as a plan B, what's your thoughts about it?

More often than not, I find it to be a less than ideal decision. But in the specific case of the suit whose picture you provided, I actually think it'd be okay.

It's when someone asks about wearing the top half of, say, his charcoal pinstripe suit as a jacket, that I'm likely to be hard pressed to keep from typing my response with the Caps Lock key engaged.

Anyone know the rise on a Brooks Brothers Madison trouser size 34 waist?

Is $400 a good price for a pair of Canali monks?

I have a light grey suit and plan on wearing some navy blue suede oxford shoes with it. What color belt would you wear with a shoe that color? These aren't the shoes, but they look very similar:

Any reasonably refined brown belt will pass muster. A tan would work alright, a dark brown would be fine, and a burgundy would be quite passable.

 

Blue suede would, of course, be ideal.

"Some guy I know" spilled chocolate ice cream on his poplin gingham shirt today. "That guy" tried spraying Shout onto the stain and then running it through the wash, but the stain is still subtly there (or so "that guy" tells me).

How do you measure suit lapels? Is it across the widest point? A picture would be very useful.
