I assume they'd fit (assuming they were the right size trees for the shoes in question). Why would you even ask?

Because someone on here said the JAB shoe trees stretched out a pair of their shoes and I didn't want to have a new pair of shoes ruined.

They're just ordinary shoe trees, Left Hand. Made by Woodlore, if memory serves, and pretty much the same as the trees Allen Edmonds sells on its website. There's nothing uniquely wonderful or awful about them.

I suppose if you jammed a large shoe tree into a relatively small shoe, the tree might stretch out the shoe. But that's likely true no matter what the make of shoe tree; it's not as if it's purely a JAB thing.

If I can't wear it on top of a suit, is it not a topcoat?

I can't tell if you tried wearing a suit coat underneath it from your facts. If not I'd do that if it doesn't fit i'd return it for a larger size.

A topcoat isn't supposed to fit like a glove. You're supposed to be able to wear a sportcoat, a suit, or a sweater under your topcoat.

You're right; it's too small.

Could be that the Belvest topcoats just run small. Could be that you've put on a few pounds, although you'd probably be aware of that (since your other clothes would be a little tight). Whatever the explanation, it was nice of your wife to buy you a new topcoat, even if it doesn't quite fit. You let her know that, okay?

Admittedly, as someone who prefers traditional fit to the currently fashionable close/slim fit, I'm out of sync with most of the folks where on SF. Granted. But I'm not backing down from my position that with vanishingly few exceptions, a man should be able to wear a suit under his topcoat. Same way that if you can't button the collar button on your dress shirt, your shirt collar's too small. Or if you can't comfortably sit in your pants, your pants are too small.

I mean, I'm willing to be open-minded, but at some point I've got to draw the line.

Sorry, but that just seems so feminine.

90% of the clothes in ads are examples of the "feminization of mens clothing" from skinny jeans to suit jackets that barely cover the belt, to fitted top coats that look like womens coats.


Amazingly these ads seem to work quite well for 20 somethings.

Well yes. Topcoats were made to be worn over suits. wink.gif I doubt "feminization" or fashion has anything to do with this, anything that doesn't fit over a suit is simply not a topcoat. Maybe in 2112, businessmen will wear blouses and women's jackets, but even so, a topcoat would have to fit over those. XD

I foolishly sat on my tweed cap while in a restaurant for a Christmas lunch lasting several hours.







It is now severely creased.

Any ideas how get these creases out? I made an attempt to iron them out, but this was ineffective.

What color ties would go with these shirts? Also solid right as they're all patterned? any help would be greatly appreciated!

For the first shirt I would go with a solid blue as it contrasts with the orange.  For the next three I would go with a solid burgundy.  You can do striped ties as well for these, but make sure the stripes are widely spaced, as the spacing on the checks is quite narrow, and so the contrast would look good (and only if the suit is a solid).  Patterned suit with patterned shirts and patterned ties can be overkill.  When in doubt, refer to a color wheel - you can find one on Google Images, and pick colors that are diagonally across from each other on the color wheel or the colors that form an equilateral triangle with the color that you are looking to match with.

When divesting yourself of clothes, is there a good rule of thumb for selling on eBay yourself/consigning to an experienced eBay seller/selling here on B&S?

I have some stuff to get rid of - not a ton, maybe 20-30 pieces all told. The quality and desirability are all over the map (everything from a barely-worn RLPL suit and NWT LVC 501s to some middle-of-the-road Italian shirts to some decent but unexceptional Muji stuff).

Forgive me if this has been answered. I did some searches but didn't find anything.
