For the S/M/L stuff some will have narrow shoulders some will be wider.

If I went back up to 154 I guess I would be close to a 42 inch. Others might be a 38.

A tape measure isn't that expensive. Even a myotape is less then a pair of socks.

True, but i was just after a general guide really. Like when buying suits they usually pair 36inch chest suits with 32 inch trousers and things along that line.

I bought a medium sized coat you see and the fitting range is 38-40inch. The small was 36-38 size. Im always confused as to what size to buy. I think i am am about 37 you see and would have prefered to try the small size coat but they had sold out the small which really bug me.

I really like the red and the brown on their own, but I wonder how well they would match with stuff. Which two/three would you guys recommend?

Cotton"”not very warm. Don't know if that's a problem for you.

Measurements taken using the Blue in Green method. Blue in Green Soho is a shop and its website shows a method for taking measurements of jeans

I have some brogue boots that are already conspicuous enough for me but they sound like chicks high heels when I walk. Any way to silence them?

Stop wearing grown-up's shoes and stick with sneakers.

I think you'll learn to appreciate the sound, it just comes with the territory. I love leather soles.

The standard rule for collar size is that you shouldn't be able to fit more than two fingers laid flat against the neck. I have skinny fingers. Is 3/4 of an inch too much room? (Collar circumference minus neck circumference.)

Hi, I just bought my first pair of quality shoes, AE Weybridge (chili). I am looking for a thread (i am sure it exists somewhere) about general shoe maintenance, including creams, polishes, products etc. I basically want it to have everything I need to know starting out about polishing, etc. Also, cedar shoe trees, should I get AE's or is any old tree good (i.e., will it maintain the shape properly)? Same question from the polish, do I need the chili polish from AE? thanks!

Generally, you want to have .5" of allowance, so if you have a 15.5" neck, your collar should measure about 16". Obviously this varies with personal preference. Most tailors/makers allow for around .25" of shrinkage, so .75" prior to washing is about in line with normal.

Woodlore makes AEs trees, I'd try to order some Woodlores off Amazon or similar. Just make sure you select the correct size (you can find the ranges on their website), and I'd opt for a model with a full heel.

I actually really like the AE shoe conditioner, as well as their liquid polishes that come in tubes. They're actually rebranded from a European company.

In general, you don't have to use the 'chili' color, any vaguely brown variety will work just fine.

I jjust bought this SC on the B&S. I expect it to be 1/2" too long for me in the sleeve. Instead of getting it tailored from the shoulders, I am thinking of removing the last button and removing the stitching and getting it altered from the sleeve end. Wanted to confirm if this will be possible Picture of sleeve end

Buying on forums question: I've read around that Mabitex is a great slim pants to have, and I'm in the market to get a couple pairs of new, nice pants. There's a lot on sale because of the Daffy's thing, so I'm very tempted to pick a couple up. Should I buy a couple of my waist size even I don't know my inseam/knee/rise measurements. and have them tailored? Or should I wait til I can try some pants on or get measured then buy some later, hoping they're still there? I'm very new to buying pants online so I don't want to do something I'll regret. Thanks!
