Just wondering what a fair price to pay for a pair of vintage Florsheim Imperial longwings (black/shell cordovan). I understand about 80% of that price is dependent on condition, but some range would be great. eBay is useless at the moment.

^ Too many factors: condition, sizing, etc., prices for such pair swing considerably. I have seen a pair can sell at $40 here in SF, and some gone for high $300s after a day of listing on ebay.

1) When is the next Brooks Brothers sale? 2) Does anyone actually buy two pairs of shoes in different sizes to fit their feet? (so 9.5 for the left, 9.0 for the right)?

is it possible to have a tailor let out the sleeve width of a suit a little? i.e. the jacket is a little tight around my biceps and I'm wondering if it's worth taking to the tailor or if there simply isn't enough fabric there in general to let it out at all.

I always thought midnight blue was darker in theory, but I can't tell the diff in reality. Then I saw this:

According to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Navy_blue (and other sites) the hex code for navy is: 000080

Whereas according to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Midnight_blue the hex code for midnight blue is: 191970

So whereas midnight blue has a tiny bit less blue, it also has more red and green. If the two are this close in color-theory, it seems to indicate that in clothes dying, there really isn't going to be much difference between a true navy and midnight blue.

This true?

Clothing terminology is different from color theory. Midnight blue means near black with a shade of navy, think of it as the very very dark navy. While navy blue means the lighter shade of navy.

Opinions about this suit? I think about wearing it with white shirts for formal events and small gingham red check and a solid tie when i'll want to pimp it a little bit. Anyone else had experience with Indochino?are their suits good?

Any way to save these?

As always, deeply appreciative of the knowledge of this forum Questions on dress shirt: How is fit measured? For example I know by now that a 44R jacket actually is 46-48 inches p2p because the coat needs to be loose. How does it work for shirts (traditional and slim fits)? I'll make the question simpler. I am ~ 22.5 inches p2p (one side). What would be an appropriate p2p measurement for me for a dress shirt - traditional fit and a slim fit respectively? Thank you.

Got em wet? I have 2 favorite ties that had some food stains so I tried washing them in the sink.. They look just like that. Hanging, rolling, steaming, pressing, nothing has worked. My next plan is to get them disassembled, steam/press the hell out of the silk and then remake them.

Any idea what "buttonstand" measurements mean for a suit? Thanks!

Love the color and pattern, fo sho mo fo. I'd wear it with a plain white shirt and plain tie to let attention be drawn to the suit itself.

I tried steaming them and ironing them lightly but without any major effect.
