If it helps, some gents pay extra for such sleeve detailing smile.gif

 

I wouldn't mind either, but they didn't offer me something like that.

And yes I know it's hard to find a good one... unfortunately. I did inquire where I got the jacket, and they specifically recommended this dry cleaner, so I feel kind of bummed.. There's no other problems at all, but this really bothers me!

 

By using press board was indeed the way that was suggested :) So it seems like there isn't really a better nor an easier alternative..

But you do think it can definitely be fixed though?

You should visit the tailor fit thread on this forum and ask that question. I cannot advise how much can be salvaged on the sleeve shape, but they sure can...

Hmm that's actually a great idea. I'm in the process of reading through the thread, but didn't think of asking there. I just did :)

 

I thought this would be a more common issue, not needing the help of a tailor, considering all the dry cleaning misery that's all around us...

I don't wear nice shoes when the pavement is wet and the sidewalks are salty. For the uppers, I brush them off when I come in, using a damp paper towel to remove salt, and I polish them when they need it.

I think that's just what they are called. But as they are usually a different colour, and at times composition, you would probably have to use something other than general, coloured polish.

 

I imagine neutral polish could work if it is leather, saving you having to track down specific products?

Those are denim jeans?  You might get more useful answers on the "Streetwear & Denim" forum.

You can pretty much wear anything with that. Personally I would wear a pair of longwing bluchers.

Not everyone would agree.

 

I certainly would never wear a black cap-toe Balmoral with that.

 

To be honest, I wouldn't wear that at all (which was one reason why I suggested the S & D forum).  Bu if someone forced me to wear it, I might go with suede ankle boots of some sort or another, in part because that coat looks like it's got some texture or nap to it.

 

Cheers,

Loafers, brown brogues, something suede as previously suggested, or Chuck Taylor high tops.  I often wear my royal blue par when I do that kind of look, and going somewhere that they would be appropriate.

It wouldn't be a bad look with a different color cardigan and a human sized pair of pants or jeans.

At least I don't think so.

I'd like to amend this after looking through my polo ties. The ones that say "Hand made in Italy" are the really nice ones. The others are just average.

Another forum suggested navy. This was the unfortunate result:

 

 

Thoughts on what would work?

 

 

Struggling to find any jacket/blazer that goes with such a large check pattern without looking incredibly odd.
