My tailor once showed me but I forgot.
A picture guide would be especially helpful.
"Is there a way to reduce (or eliminate) the squeaking that comes from the tounge area on calfskin shoes? Would Lexol Cleaner/Conditioner in the affected areas help at all? Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!"
I don't have personal experience, but I've read here a number of times that people have had success using talcum powder to quiet their squeaking monkstraps. You might give that a try.
These are called 'creases', and they are ironed into the pants to give them more shape and a slight air of formal. One trick I've recently discovered is that pairing creased pants with decidedly casual tops (white t-shirt) and casual-leaning shoes (desert boots, mocs) lends a certain dimension to the look.
New to this site, so excuse any ignorance I might display. Got this jacket on ebay for 60AUD, Canali, just wondering what you all think of the fit? I like the fit, but I'm sure it could be tweaked - maybe a tiny bit shorter in the sleeves? Also, the shoulders extend past my shoulders by about the 3/4 of an inch...Is it noticeable? This seems like, due to the fact that it's such a small amount, a tailor could take it in at the seam on the back? Again, excuse my lack of technical know how etc if I am incorrect and I'm sure I haven't used the correct terms. Also, the jacket seems to drape strangely in this pic; I believe it's due to what I'm wearing (on a break from work where I often have to do heavy lifting); a thick flannel shirt. I don't know why it's pulling where I have buttoned it up as it usually hasn't done this. Of course I would wear it with more appropriate clothes! Also, my poses look a bit awkward which I think contributed to the ugly creases, which as I said, I haven't noticed before.
Also, any tips on what would look good with this jacket? Cheers!
^Altering shoulder width is very difficult. The back picture is odd, as there seems to be an almost feminine amount of waist suppression but drape that suggests the jacket is too big. I'd suggest posting in the tailor thread (following the directions in the first post) with a proper shirt and stance, and people much more qualified will chime in on the fit and how to address them.
I wasn't sure if those were pleats or not. What's the difference between creases and pleats actually?
