Sounds obvious, but depends on whether it is one of their oxfords or not... It will say oxford if it is oxford.

I wouldn't have suggested it otherwise. They also have tailors. smile.gif

Bought my first pair of AEs (Mactavishes) about 3 months ago. Granted I wear them 5 days per week (to work) but I am suprised to see that the rubber part of the heel is already peeling away from the rest of the heel. AE told me to send them (using supplied UPS label) for inspection. The quick question is will I screw up my recrafting options if i take these to a local shop for repair? Should I just gorilla glue them? I hate to do that. I love these shoes but it seems a shame to start rigging things up this soon. What would you do?

You need to stop wearing them five times a week.

Agreed. I used some of this goop to keep the rubber part of a combination heel where it should be after it fell off (of some shell cordovan shoes with JR soles); as long as it doesn't do anything to the welt, AE should be fine with a dab to keep the heel on... but the real problem is wearing the same pair of shoes five days in a row for months at a time.

Two pairs of shoes each worn every other day will last much longer than buying a pair of shoes and buying another pair when the first wears out. Get a rotation going.

+1

 

You truly should let leather shoes air/rest one day between wearings.

I recently had a suit made but the tailor messed up the breast pocket. The placement is about an inch too high and I've been told it's irreversible. Is there anything I can do about it because it looks awful?
post #22959 of 28351
It's literally a hole in the fabric, so there's not much you can do about it unfortunately.
post #22960 of 28351

that sucks....coz everything else is spot on. Guess I should ask my tailor for a refund.

I guess I could understand not specifying pocket placement in conversations with the tailor about the desired suit, but didn't you notice the problem with the placement of the pocket prior to the final fitting?

Still seems like something a good tailor ought to get right. Who is this tailor, if you don't mind my asking?

And just to humor me, would you mind putting on the suit, taking a photo, and posting it here? Could be I'll think that the placement of the pocket is just fine, and that it's your perception of it that's the issue. (Meaning no offense, I assure you.)

Evening guys. I just acquired this linen Armani Collezioni sport coat for cheap. However I was wondering about the versatility, and what you would pair it with. My guess is that it's obviously best suited for spring/summer, and dark pants would be ideal. Indigo denim perhaps? Anyway, if you have any thoughts please feel free to chime in here. I just threw on a random shirt/tie combo for the picture..

Hey,

 

anyway I own a pair of beeswax clarks bushacre 2s and recently I applied the kiwi brown instant wax polish on them because I wanted to darken them and I have a couple questions, any help is great

 

a) was kiwi brown instant wax polish okay for the boots? will it harm them in any way? 

b) i think its cracking a little bit, is that normal? should i dampening a cloth and wiping it over the boots?

c) my friend just gave me a can of obernaufs heavy duty LP the day after I wax polished, can i apply it over the wax polish?

d) how can I remove the wax polish if needed?

 

thanks so much!

You can but some may suggest to make the stripe a different scale than what's on the shirt. I think if you wore a candy or dress stripe it may not look great. Maybe bengal. I think hairline stripes could work. You should always vary scale of patterns and textures. You could see how it's possible that a candy-stripe could be the exact same, or close, scale and would throw it off. Pin stripes too. Wide pin stripes, dress stripes, bengal, hairline, etc, could be good.
