post #23296 of 30713

Has anyone taken their Jcrew 'secret wash' shirts to the dry cleaner and had them starched? I have done that on a number of shirts and want to know whether repeated starching has completely ruined the 'secret wash' feel or whether I can restore it some how.

 

Thanks in advance.

If you have the confidence to pull it off. It's a matter of personal preference. Try it and see how you like it.

Do you think these gloves (link below) will stretch a lot? I bought them in a size L, but I think I might've needed M. Shipping them back for an exchange would be too costly, so I'm not returning them.

 

So the question is - do these kind of (shearling gloves) stretch less than "normal" leather gloves? If these gloves stretch too much, they might become too loose after a while.

If they are too big for you now, chances are they won't stretch. Things usually stretch when force is exerted on them.

Is the following belt ok with both of the shoes here, or is it necessary to match colors more. I'm not looking for perfection. The belt is cheap and what I'm looking for even if it might not be the best color combo.

I think generally it's better to match textures first, then color, but it strikes me that that belt may be a bit wide for the shoes on the bottom. What's the rest of the outfit like?

What winter climate do you think this coat is suited to? It is 24 oz wool.

Also related question:


Do you think lighter weight flannel pants are suitable to be worn in a climate that often has winter highs in the low 60s?

Dependes on the weave, but a 24 oz cloth sounds like a good middle ground between too cold and too warm. Consult these threads for more info:

As for the second question, under the condition you specified, I believe light-weight flannel would serve you very well.

When is it appropriate to cuff your pant legs in order to show a little sock? Jeans, chinos, slacks, etc.?

And what's the best way to do it?

I would say no.  I think a light brown belt would work better for both of these pairs of shoes.  +1 for being too wide for the bottom pair.  The width is fine for the bucks, but I think a narrower belt would be more versatile in general.

Sorry, I totally posted the wrong belt. The one that I have is only 1.1". Definitely not concerned about the width. It is actually a bit darker than the one in the pic. This is more representative of what the belt color is. (and again, the shoes are tan grenson stanley and tan bucks)
 



@an acute style, it's actually pretty similar to the one in your avatar, aside from the different buckle.

Never, if you are going to roll your pants than no socks is appropriate to show a little ankle.

post #23308 of 30713

Always appropriate! As long as you have great socks, great shoes, and you're not rolled too much.. I also feel like you have to be on the thinner side. A heavier set gent is going to look a little awkward, me thinks!

I hadn't thought about stretching in that way, good point, thanks! :)

That was the opposite issue wasn't it? Shrinking as opposed to stretching?
