Tailoring questions: - if I need my tailor to shorten the length of a sport coat (not the sleeve, but the body, perhaps by about 3/4 inch), how big of job is that? and what might be a ballpark price? - for sleeve shortening -- assuming the cuff buttons are not functional and assuming the sleeve is overall fairly slim/tapered, what's the max length that a jacket's sleeves can be shortened (from the end, not from the shoulder)? Or is there no max (i.e., 3 or 4 inches is fine)?

Number 3: I don't like the bridge.


Number 2: This was tough because these look very sleek to me but...


Number 1: The retro coolness of the tortoise shell rims speaks to me.


Hope this helps.

Thanks Digmenow for your time, I was a bit surprised that the Vintage Cartier screw sunglasses ranked low, they were quite popular among the 80s movie stars.

We aren't in the 80s anymore.

Lately, I often have the feeling we re-entered the 80s.

Brad Pitt agrees with you..



and so do Dolce and Gabbana who copied this design minus the Cartier quality.

Shortening the length of the coat 3/4 inch should be no problem provided the coat has not been shortened before. The cost should be $60.

I've had my sleeves shortened 1-2 inches in the past and would assume if everything else fits shortening them 3-4 inches should be no problem but I'm not a tailor.

looking for comfy undershirts. I was told that if I open up my collar a bit I needed a v-neck. I like american apparel, are there other alternatives? and is that v-neck thing true?

I liked the general look of the Cartiers but not the screws. Seems contrived. They do appear dated to a specific decade but I'll admit that I was unaware of their history.

It's been 20 years since I wore jeans. My legs are not straight and it look bad with Jeans. So I wear Khaki pants with sharp lines with iron. It looks very old style. Is there any way I can wear a pair of pants casual? What kind of pants style or brand would you recommend.

Sorry if this has been answered many times before...but is it ok to wear a pocket square without a tie? I like wearing jackets and would like to start incorporating PSs for a flash of color, but I don't have many occasions that would warrant a tie....

All cotton whatever from your local department store, and yes, if you open the collar you need a v neck. Otherwise you see the white tee shirt poking out, and it just looks sloppy.

I'm having a hard time finding linen pocket squares that aren't showy. Anyone know where I can get some simplified and humble ones? I'd really like a white one with a navy blue pattern. Something like this but inverted.
