How often do RTW suitmakers like Kiton, Brioni, Oxxford etc. release a collection? Do they have more than A/W and S/S collections?

Hi,

I recently removed a stitched on path/crest from the chest pocket of my blazer. Now there's small indentations, and a few slightly larger holes where the stitches were.

Fabric is navy hopsack wool

What can I do to fix this?

Please see picture below:

Thanks.

Getting it cleaned and pressed (or at least pressed) would be a good first step, and should take care of most of the issue, if not all of it. Provided we're talking about wool, anyway.

Join a barbershop quartet and get a nice new patch to cover the old one. 

 

If you have a shitty voice, a professional cleaning could help allow the fibers to reset.  Send it out and if that doesn't work get some voice lessons, learn "Sweet Adeline" and enjoy your sport coat with your 3 new best friends.

biggrin.gif LOL, appreciate the suggestions (my voice isn't up to par), I can see that mentioning that i removed a patch from my blazer makes some people think it was a bad purchase, but seriously, does anyone have any experience about what I can do? It was bought new so I don't want to send it to cleaning yet. Would a press be enough?

Sorry, I was kidding, of course. I've never had a patch issue, but I have had stitching from faux button holes and such removed. It will leave a gap and in my experience, only water, steam or dry cleaning will be able to get the fabric to compensate for the place tha the patch was sewn. Also, I'm in the military and I have to deal with pins and badges and patches on my uniforms. Only washing helps fill the holes. Maybe someone else has had a different experience?

Looking for pants like these, unfortunately they're out of stock in my size. Any other brands that make similar pants? These are brooks brothers, and definitley looking for summer weight. Thanks,

Does anyone think the Shepherds check is too large in scale?

 

I would agree with what people in general are saying on here and opt for the burgundy tie.  If you really want to go for a checked tie, I would go for the first option - the second one seems better suited towards casual wear as its more of a gingham style pattern.  While a light blue shirt can go beautifully with a burgundy tie and a navy suit, if you are really looking at strictly formal, a white shirt may do the job better.

 

As for shoes though, I think dark brown shoes could look extremely elegant, as long as they're lace-ups:)

I guess the second tie is out. So now I am between the first one and a burgundy tie. I am pretty set on the white shirt and black shoes. I would normally wear dark brown with a navy suit, but since this is an evening event, I am going with black.

Here are my burgundy options. The third and forth are shinier than the others. The first is sort of a faux grenadine.

I like one and two, but they're all fine.

Not sure if I should ask here or SW&D but where do you guys get good quality umbrellas? Preferably one that is pretty big when opened

 

I'm looking to get a full size one and a small one. 

 

Most of the ones I used before were pretty bad quality and I'm tired of buying them for ~$12 at CVS just to have them break after a couple of uses.

I just measured myself for Modern Tailor and was wondering if my body is disproportionate or not:

 

  CM IN
Neck 38 15
Chest 89 35
Waist 77 30
Hips 92.5 36.5
Shoulder 46.5 18.3
Sleeve Length 65 25.6
Wrist 16 6.3
Bicep 30 11.8
Shirt Length 70.5 27.8
Armhole 46 18.1
Height 171 5'7
Weight 65kg 143lbs

 

Where could I get ready-made shirts that fit me best? Here in Melbourne, Australia, the slimmest shirt company is Jack London but even their XS shirts with 37.5cm neck are made for a 96cm chest while mine is only 89...
