Should I return them to the store for a new pair, or simply accept that they will crease anyway not make a big issue out of it.


Thanks

As soon as you put on the other shoe, it's going to crease. you're going to be hard pressed to find a shoe from a department store that hasn't been tried on at some point. I wouldn't worry about it. It's not like your shoes are never going to have creases in them.

Perfect, thank you. That's the direction I was leaning in. I hadn't encountered this before and thought I'd ask the experts,.

Hi there, was just wondering what kind of suit I should by as a first suit? I'm thinking a navy blue or light gray. Its not for business just for looking smart, any help would be appreciated.

@Jloo96 can never go wrong with a navy blue suit it's so versatile and can be worn year round. You can dress it up or down. Go navy for #1

I'm looking at this Grenson dress shoe care guide.  Why will rubbing an open potato on the leather sole give you more grip?

I've had this shirt darted and it fits perfectly in the waist. I've also had the arms shortened. But, I can't help thinking the arms are too baggy. Should I get the arms "thinned" as my alterations tailor likes to say or do they look okay? Please bear in mind I'm not looking for a skin tight fit shirt as I'm already very slim.

I have a pair of Loake 1880's in a tan double monk - they're awesome. More of a casual shoe... excellent for going sockless in the summer with a higher hemmed pair of linen pants or whatnot... but I still wear them in the winter with greys mostly and get lots of compliments.

I think you should have the arms cut off. That's the only way they'll be slim enough.

The fuck is wrong with you.

I really like the look of Zonkey Boot's Jodhpurs but I wear rather slim pants and I wonder if this would cause a problem where the top of the boot may be visible under the pant leg? 

 

I don't wear chelsea boots because the elastic makes the boot too wide above the ankle but derby boots like the Edward Green Galway work fine.

This isn't going to answer your question at all, but I don't know that I would trust a guide that instructs anybody to use "plenty of polish." General consensus seems to be to use relatively small amounts.
