I have two white shirts. One has sleeves that are only barely long enough, and can disappear up the coast sleeve, if not tugged down. The other is 15 years old and slightly yellowed. Next to each other the yellow is obvious; in its own in daylight, it probably appears white except on very close inspection. Sleeves in the old shirt are perfect.

Which would you say is the lesser of two evils?

Of course you can. The question is can you sew the ends back together. I'd guess you can't. Take it to your shoe guy; they know how to work with leather.

I was able to steam, and stretch the too short sleeves. It was a thrifted shirt that had sleeves too short, so I figured what was to lose, if I ripped or ruined it?

Do people generally buy half a size smaller in monk shoes compared to oxfords ?

No. Generally, one buys the same size in monks as in oxfords.

On the scale of formality between a button-down and a contrast spread color, where does a club collar fall?  Does it work with thin faces? And could it go with a straight barrel cuff, i.e. neither mitered nor rounded?

I read the article which strongly suggested to not have the groomsmen match (which I am all about), however, if the bridesmaids already have dresses in the exact same color will it look odd if the groomsmen end up obviously less uniform in different shades of navy?

The only pair of monks I have are johnston and murphy and I did size .5 down. The same size gave way to much heel slip. Although I do still have some minor heel slip. All in all monks rant for everybody.

Depends on the last.

Hi,

 

I'm looking for inexpensive, decent quality trousers/pants for work. 

I'm a size 28, most I seen are usually 30 are above.

Any recommendations on brands, where to look, etc.?

 

Thanks.

Are your legs also skinny?  I'm a 30, but I have to buy 32 pants and bring in the waist to accommodate my legs.

Yes I would say so.

Club collar verges on costume to my eye, and is certainly too unusual these days to be properly formal, whatever its original level of formality may have been.

Club collar works for anything from workshirt level to full-on morning dress, and works for all levels of spread as it's just a normal collar with the points rounded off.  May want to seriously consider it if you have a very square or angular face in order to soften your look.  If you like it, wear it.
