You're going to want to ask that over in the SW&D Ask A Question thread.

Question about shoe care: Will the build up of shoe polish on the areas where spit shine is applied (I only do the toe) prevent the leather from properly conditioning when applying conditioner during the next polishing session?

Yes. The whole point of a spit shine is that you're filling in all the pores and creating a perfectly smooth wax surface. But you don't really need to condition every polish, considering all real polishes (no guarantees for something that comes on a sponge or in a bottle) have some form of oil in them to condition.

Any thoughts about the jacket, by the way?

So I just found SF, after following what looks to be a typical path:
1. need some nice clothes
2. realize I want what I can't afford
3. think of checking ebay
4. Go nuts over anything with a designer label (Zegna, Armani)
5. Obsess over auctions
6. Buy something random (a mislabeled designer(?) jacket - Nardelli, not Mardelli (is this a decent designer?))
7. Find StyleForum and realize I have no idea what I am doing.

Here's my purchase:
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...SA%3AUS%3A1123

I am going on a cruise in March to the carribbean on Royal Caribbean Allure of the Seas. 1st cruise.

I used to dress okay 15 years ago (not by sf standards). I lived in Boston and haunted Filenes Basement.

We got moths. So now I have 1 suit - charcoal pinstripe Jones New York from Mens Wearhouse (embarrassed).

I like to dress up. So I would like to get a blue blazer, and some kind of sportcoat.

What do you guys think of the above jacket as a blazer? Is it an orphaned suitcoat? The tag says drop 6, does that mean it was a suit, or is that term also used to describe the chest to waist of a jacket? It was a gamble, and a cheap one at that, so I can start over if need be.

Thanks for your help

Though I recently turned 30 but my hair started to turn grey too quickly, within a year I have bunch of 'em... only front hair are turned grey though... most of the friends says if I colour all may turn white Is it true?
Is there any way not to color instead make them lesser grey?
Or I should colour them?

You should ask this question in the Health & Body subforum: http://www.styleforum.net/forumdisplay.php?f=6

Quick question regarding a proper fitting suit: Some time ago I picked up a suit that seemed to fit me pretty well. However, I am noticing that the collar of the suit doesn't really ride up next to my shirt collar properly. (It ends up exposing a lot of shirt collar). I'll post pictures in a bit, but I imagine this is a common problem. What's the usual issue? Suit too large in general? Would too wide of a yoke cause this? (It runs just a touch big in the shoulder for me by maybe 0.5" I think) The chest/waist are fairly snug for me, so there's no way I could drop from a 38 to a 36.

I had a friend with a tuff of grey hair at 15. It never got any worse until he lost all his hair.

I am thinking of buying these Zellis, which are on sale for less than $200. They're lighter brown in natural light:

Is the fashion forward split toe look ok for someone under 40? The suit is cut slim.

Also, will I be able to wear them with dark gray trousers?

Thanks for any advice.

I bought a suit off ebay. The waist on the pants is an inch and a half less than in the listing. It's MTM, no tags. No seam allowance. I will contact the seller next, but I was wondering what I should expect? He accepts returns, but it's international and I would be annoyed if I had to pay the shipping both ways. I've read the ebay directions for item not as described, but I was wondering if anybody has any insights for the specific scenario? If he says I should return and pay the shipping fees, should I open a case with ebay?
