I got a olive oil stain on my suit.
How do I remove it? I've dry cleaned this suit twice or three times this year already, so I would prefer to not do it again, but obviously would if I had no other choice.

I am worried that it looks too much like a pajamas, and that it will stand out too much at my corporate place of employment where tie and jacket are obligatory. I am starting there after New Year's, so I don't actually know how "brave" the other employees are in terms of dress shirts.

What do you guys think?

A fine stripe shirt is still pretty tame. I wouldn't think twice wearing one in a conservative environment.

Do you think it looks like a pajamas? What I'm trying to find it is what I would get the most value out of: A plain, light-blue one - or the one I have linked.

 

The following is the plain one: http://www.harrods.com/product/modern-fit-shirt/armani-collezioni/000000000002925420?cat1=new-men&cat2=new-men-formal-shirts

a very general question, if i have a suit jacket fits me fine but the waist is too slim, can it be altered, i need to take it out about 1-2 inches, is that possible?

Yes, I've had this done many times.

Depends on how much you want to let out. There is usually about 1 to 1.5 inches of extra fabric built into the side seams. Every jacket model is different.

The shirt looks fine to me.

I bought an ISAIA jacket size 48 (normally i wear 50), measurement seems OK but the waist. Thank you very much for the quick and clear answer.

Merry Christmas,

I've been looking for a good Navy Birdseye Suit but I am having some problems finding some. I see Brooks Brothers doesn't have one, I was hoping so with that sale. Any recommendations?

If the jacket is unlined or half lined, you see how much material is in the side seam. Measure that across and you'll be able to estimate how much room you have.

If it's lined, you'll have to ask a tailor

Going to do a blind buy from Herring shoes

Which of these Church lasts (73, 93, 100) looks most similar to the Crockett Draycott on the far right?

My foot needs a very wide toebox, especially in the small toe area. Draycott fits nicely, no blisters.

It looks to my eyes like the 93 last is the narrowest.

Width order goes: 100 > 73 > 93

93 looks the most similiar but 73 looks to be a good fit though.
