Jeans, yes. Tshirt, no.

Anyone know the current maker of Piattelli for Barney's?

+1. A balmoral like that really shouldn't be worn with jeans. A blucher would be more appropriate with jeans. There are plenty of cap toe blucher brogues out there if you like the style. This cordovan Carmina is on sale from forum affiliate Epaulet right now and would look great with jeans IMO:

Why is every question about shoes and jeans these days?

I asked a few classic men's questions, but nobody answered, so I guess, like sex, I'll have to figure it out alone.

Made a thread for this before when I registered, but it got lost in about 10 minutes. Just figured I might ask it here as well:

 

I sent someone off to pick up a jacket I had dry cleaned a while ago, and somehow the sleeves look weird when I got it back. It does disappear to some extent, but not fully when wearing... 

What could have caused the rippling/puckering on the sleeves? And how do I get rid of it? I've been told it can be done by hand pressing with an iron and a cloth in between, but thought I'd rather ask about it here first.

The answer of course is to stop wearing jeans.  Those half-brogue oxfords (not brogues, not balmorals) would look lovely with chinos.

Finding a good dry cleanser is so hard to do, especially when suitings are involved. I would be interested in this as well, I suspect that short of re-shaping the shoulder on a tailor's pressboard, it will be a hard fix.

If it helps, some gents pay extra for such sleeve detailing smile.gif

I wouldn't mind either, but they didn't offer me something like that.

And yes I know it's hard to find a good one... unfortunately. I did inquire where I got the jacket, and they specifically recommended this dry cleaner, so I feel kind of bummed.. There's no other problems at all, but this really bothers me!

 

By using press board was indeed the way that was suggested :) So it seems like there isn't really a better nor an easier alternative..

But you do think it can definitely be fixed though?

You should visit the tailor fit thread on this forum and ask that question. I cannot advise how much can be salvaged on the sleeve shape, but they sure can...
post #25783 of 33196

Hmm that's actually a great idea. I'm in the process of reading through the thread, but didn't think of asking there. I just did :)

 

I thought this would be a more common issue, not needing the help of a tailor, considering all the dry cleaning misery that's all around us...

I don't wear nice shoes when the pavement is wet and the sidewalks are salty. For the uppers, I brush them off when I come in, using a damp paper towel to remove salt, and I polish them when they need it.

I think that's just what they are called. But as they are usually a different colour, and at times composition, you would probably have to use something other than general, coloured polish.

 

I imagine neutral polish could work if it is leather, saving you having to track down specific products?
