Any recommendable tailors in SoHo/Lower Manhattan area? Primarily for just hemming some pants.

Does formal shirt sizing in S, M, L, XL etc. rather than 40, 41, 42 etc. imply: 1) more casualness; 2) less precision in proportions?
post #20479 of 28869
Shirts are sized by collar measurement and sleeve length, e.g. 16"/34". Probably best just to steer clear of anything that is measured otherwise.

It either signifies a manufacturer cheaping out or an informal sport shirt.

anyone know where I can get a pair of shoe trees for small shoes? AE doesn't make trees that fit their own size 6 shoes.

These go down to a UK 5.5.  A lot of conversions make the difference between UK and US a whole number, but in my experience it's less - I think US sizes tend to incorporate more "wiggle room".  Either way, these are sprung trees so might squeeze into a slightly smaller shoe.  If it's really tight, then it might be best only to leave them in for a day after wearing, rather than all the time.
 
I use these trees myself for a lot of my shoes, as they're crazy cheap.  Unpolished trees are best for removing moisture, and cedar also deodorises your shoes, and probably repels moths from your wardrobe too!  Worth a try for that price anyway.

I'm not sure what color belt to pair with the Neumok Red Leather (4075) worn with brown chinos or possibly black trousers. With such a stand out color in the shoe does one still match to their belt?

Where to buy long, drapey cardigans? Like past my butt long.
