Just wash it normally, or rinse in water.

What's the deal with wearing double breasted suit jackets with non matching trousers? I've seen it look quite good, is that as much of a sin as doing so with a single breast?

Move the tie bar down. Way down. It should be just under the 4th button on your shirt, or therabouts. It exists to hold your tie in place, it's supposed to be subtle and practical. Where you have it, it is neither.

After bleaching, you are best just washing it normally.

in both of these situations I just wash normally... always worked fine for me.

Same rules apply as for single-breasted jackets.

Thank you--this has been settled: I have seen the error of my ways.

I've been looking at Isaia sport jackets online, and I see a lot of references to different models, such as Base S, Base V, and Gregory.  I assume that the difference is how they are cut.   Does anyone know where I could find a description of the differences between the various models?

Has anyone had luck with darkening shoes with polish? I have AE walnut shoes that I'd like to darken. I am worried with dark brown cream the shoes would not truly take the color and walnut would show at some point.

I always machine wash, and machine dry, once before I have a shirt altered.  With one exception - I forgot to do this with my dinner shirt, before alterations, so now I simply machine wash, and air dry.

I'm a US-based guy who spends a few weeks per year in Europe (various countries).  I can honestly say that the Europeans are much more fashionable than the Americans.  I mean, I'm all about the US and all and I would fight for them and I think we kick ass and all, but, yea, that's pretty much a wrap.  Where is the question - there is none. :-)

I just picked up some Allen Edmonds Nashua tassle loafers, store gave me the off-the-shelf model for the seconds sale price so I went for it.

 

They're black with a brown kiltie and trim, so uh, what color belt do I wear with these?  I figure they're super casual so it doesn't really matter, but on days I want to match my belt what should I be matching? the body or the details?

^Either, and I think that's the point.

If my actual shoulder width is 17.5", and a sport coat I like on eBay has a shoulder width measurement of 18.5", would this be too wide for me? Thanks!
