The latter.

A very minor amount of heel slippage may be acceptable when the loafer is new, with the slippage ending as the leather breaks in. But emphasis on "very minor."

Hey guys,

 

I've just got my order of pocket squares from Sam Hober. Came in a fancy box and everything, I suppose that's natural considering I am getting pieces of cloth that cost more than some people's jackets.

 

In any case, one of my items is a linen pocket square 15 inches, and I am having a hard time getting a straight fold that does not look ridiculous since I do not have an iron. Do I have to iron after every fold? It is new so it's fairly flat/ironed already, it's not like it was crumpled before. It's just with that size, I have to fold it so there are 6 sides at least, or 4 folds if I bunch everything up where it's not seen. Is this normal? Do I basically just have to iron it and it'll be fine?

 

In the meantime I played around with folds and did this (I thought it looked like a flower but my roommate says it looks like an icecream... well). I think it looks kinda nice, but maybe it just comes off as foppish/silly. I think it looks fine, but maybe it bunches up and pushes the pocket out too much also? Thoughts?

It looks like an ice cream.

A good sort of ice cream, or a bad one?

 

In any case, I have coined a new fold then, the ice cream fold. Finally I will be famous.

Any thoughts on whether this coat would be a good buy?  I've been looking around for double-breasted coats, and this is the only one I like - at least from what I see online. 

 

Also, do you think it would be ok to size down to 36R from a slim 38R suit size?

Hi Incotex owners,

 

What is the difference between Slim and Regular fit Incotex Comforchinos? Some webshops usually mention this, but I've seen a couple shops not mentioning this at all, especially yoox. 

I have noticed that Regular fit chinos have back pocket buttons, while Slim fit don't, but is this true?

I would imagine it depends on the person, but to me the slim fit is VERY slim fitting. Made me look like a damn hipster.

Does the slim fit have other noticeable features than just the fit of the pants?

The Charles Tyrwhitt 14.5 extra slim fit shirts have a 36" actual chest shirt measurement according to their size charts yet on this forum, people say that CT shirts are not as slim as the slim BB shirts, which are given a larger measurement on their website. Is the CT size chart inaccurate, or is the advice on SF outdated?

The Brooks Brothers Extra Slim FIt is typically wider (at the chest) than the Charles Tyrwhitt Extra Slim Fit. However, the cuts of the shirts differ for the different neck sizes, so at some neck sizes the BB is slimmer and at other neck sizes the CT is slimmer.

The numbers I have are as follows. For the 14.5 inch neck the CT Extra Slim is 40.2 inches at the chest (garment measurement). The BB Extra Slim is 39.5 inches at the chest (garment measurement).

Impossible for anyone to say. You have to try it on.

I just got sized for an 8.5 EE in Red Wing Iron Rangers, however, I am looking to purchase them on sale from a retailer that only carries D width. Do you think sizing up to a 9 D would work?

 

Thanks!

I ordered a shirt online with following measures for the waist:

front waist width: 17.75"

back waist width: 15.75"

 

The shirt arrived with

 

front waist width: 43 cm ~16.9"

 

 

 

back waist width: 41cm ~16.1"

 

 

So total waist about 33.0".

Unfortunately too small for me.

 

I contacted the manufacturer and got replied that this is normal as "(17.75"+15.75")/2= 16.75" on average. Thus front waist would always be 16.75".

For me this doesn't make any sense for several reasons and sounds like an excuse not to remake the shirt. But could you please give advice on this matter?

 

Thanks alot.

Probably not.

If 9D fit the same as 8.5EE, there would be no need for anyone to offer footwear in EE width, after all.
