Can a cobbler cut this type of belt? This belt is a tad too long and I would like to trim it down. Thanks
I doubt it, but I'm not sure. The buckle end is finished, folded back and stitched onto the back side of the belt. I'm not sure a cobbler could reproduce that after trimming it

He guys,

I am in dilemma right now. I am looking for a casual, every day blazer that will go well with jeans. My measurements are 

chest(armpit to armpit): 18

shoulders(across):22

shoulder seam to wrist: 27

waist: 32

As you so I have a large drop between my shoulders and waist. I have looked into the Neapolitan style, but I am not quite sure what to look for. 

I really enjoy this look:

I looked into harris tweed but it seems they do not have any natural shoulders models.

I am looking to by used, as retail is not really an option. All your opinions and comments are greatly appreciated!

 

Thx.

Just crickets?

I have a blazer that is too big for me. In the shoulders and length. Its a 36r and I have a 35 chest. It kind of just looks boxy. doesn't contour to my body. Are those fixable and if so, how much would it cost? (a general estimate)

No, not fixable.

US Army Navy store. Or Marc O'Polo.

That looks good. I have heard though that J. Crew blazers are made rather poorly?

Also, what do you mean with just crickets?

Thx!

I just meant that no one seemed to have suggestions of alternatives along those lines ("heard nothing but crickets"). I know some J.Crew stuff is well made, but I'm hoping to find a couple of other options to consider, both stylistically and cost/quality wise.

Well, thank you for clearing it up. It seems that the jacket is no where to be found, it is all backordered.

Ebay seems to be sparse.

I bought a used J. Press tie on Ebay, and it turns out it's got a bad crease on the front where someone apparently ironed it, pressing it into the loop on the back.

 

Is there any way to "uncrease" this, as it were?

 

Thanks in advance.

 

Cheers,

 

Tim

Steam, maybe, depending upon the type of fabric. Silk ties should never be pressed.

Thanks.  Sadly, it's silk.

I've been invited to an art deco wedding with a 1920's and 30's theme.

 

Is there any way to pull that off without spending bucks on clothes I'll never wear again?

 

I'll be flying to Austin, TX for the wedding.

 

All suggestions appreciated...

 

Thanks,

That depends. What kind of stuff would you wear again? What kind of clothes do you have now?

The answer may be as simple as wearing one of your regular suits with a loud shirt, somewhat unusual tie, and a tweed linen (noticed you were going to Texas) cap.

Rent a nice tuxedo. A classic black and white tux is the essence of Deco.

When/where should I buy clothes?

 

A) New York - 1 week before Christmas 

B) Boston - During Christmas

C) Chicago - After Christmas

D) Los Angeles - After New Years

 

Not from the US so I'm not sure when stores have their sales. Mainly want to check out JCrew, Brooks Brothers, Uniqlo, Allen Edmonds, Epaulet, Nordstrom and Kamakura.
