I just spilled creamer all over my deerskin glove this morning. Is damp cloth the best I can do to clean it up? or is there a better option?

This explains Ambrosi Napoli

I hang shirts and sweaters and fold t-shirts.

Appropriate with an OCBD and dark brown captoe oxford? I work in business casual setting where most people wear wool slacks and open neck dress shirts. This might have a slightly more casual look, but at least it's a coherent one I'm thinking...

I always fold sweaters because I don't want them to stretch via gravity.

Is it possible to alter a 100% wool cardigan by making it slimmer through the waist? And around how much am I looking at it costing?

Thanks,

It's not going to come off as dated, if anything it'll come off as a little fashiony. Maybe in a few years it'll look as silly as the 80's landing strip shoulders look to us now, but I don't think that that styling is going to inspire such an extreme reaction.

The single breasted, peak lapel bit is a trend right now, and light gray pinstripe is a less formal suiting, but a well established one that won't look too odd now or in 10 years. I would not wear that suit to an interview, but for a wedding (not yours), a party, or a day at the office, it's a nice choice.

And pretty much any non-loafer dress shoe will go with that suit. Gray means black will always be a sharp choice, and the lighter gray is, the more shades of brown you can easily play with. Burgundy too, of course. The world is your oyster.

Clarksdb has the right of it, I think. Persols are nice, indeed. You could also do what Cary Grant did in North by Northwest and put tinted lenses in eyeglass frames. Or, if you want a brilliant take on a classic, get some Randolph Engineering aviators (avoid size 58 unless you have a very large head).

What should I wear under a black v neck sweater?

 

I was thinking a white ocbd and jeans.

When I buy shirts or cashmere sweaters there is always some tissue like paper wrapped around it. This tissue like paper is also used to fold up the sweater more neatly.

What kind of tissue paper is this? Is there some name for it? Where can I buy it?

I'm pretty sure it's just tissue paper.

I hope your jacket arrives safely, drtchock. And I suppose it might. Eventually. Maybe. But I'd have paid extra for something like FedEx or DHL, rather than taking the crapshoot that is the Italian postal service.

thanks, i hope it arrives safely too.. i got a bargain price for a margiela jacket and the seller said they would throw in free shipping so i accepted! i had no idea the italian post was so bad though otherwise i would have just paid the extra and gone for DHL. fingers crossed it arrives, i'm sure it will... i hope.

I don't think so. Wouldn't you have to re-weave it?
