Maybe it's because I'm indian, but I don't think tea bags smell as much as they absorb moisture and smells.

Also, hanging it outdoors for a while should air it out, but it might fade a bit in the sun.

Thanks for the replies, tie in freezer now. A much more satisfactory answer than I received via content farm Google responses. Also sorry if it was asked earlier in thread, was on mobile...

 

edit:

 

Another quick very unimportant curiosity:

 

My white linen pocket square is way too large for these TV fold instructions: http://www.samhober.com/howtofoldpocketsquares/flatpocketsquarefold.htm. Do pocket squares have any standardization in size?

Sorry to be blunt, but my suggestion is return the shirt. It's pretty horrible. If it must be worn, then under a crew neck sweater in the autumn only. But definitely not with a tie. But best would be to return it.

Since I see an increased use of lapel pins (especially the rockin' math pin from AAS) in fit pics I wanted to use some I have laying around (gathering dust basically). In this case a Studio Tobac-pin. Unoftunately today's suit (from Suitsupply with working cuffs) has a non-working/closed lapel hole. So it had me wondering:

Are non-working lapel holes on jackets (either suit or SC) common?

Just open up the hole. Cut the stitching.

The blue stripe is an easy one, but the orange strip not so much....either one, I am open to new ties ideas....


Thanks (should this have been started as a new thread?)


Great collar...

Yes. And ti can't always just cut the stitching, as they are often just embroidered on, and were never punched through. The only working one, on any of my clothes, is on my 1930's morning coat.

I have some jackets with lapel holes that just needed to be cut and some with just a line of thread stitched on to look the part. A tailor should be able to add a hole in the case of the latter for $10-15.

For those of you who have taken a pair of raws in to get them hemmed: did you keep the original hem or get a new one made? I just watched a couple of videos detailing both processes, and unless I misunderstood them, the only way to keep a solid Selvedge line in the final product is to construct a new hem. I really want to keep the selvedge id intact so that I can cuff the jeans, but I also think keeping the original hem would be dope. Any advice is appreciated.

Newcomer as I am, I mistakenly posted this in Streetwear forum earlier.

 

So have a new bus. casual job (in Dallas).

 

Need to buy a handful of shirts. Please help me figure out the right size RTW shirt to buy. Also advise on how to instruct tailor.

 

The shirt below is a Brooks Bros OCBD Extra-Slim fit 16" neck, 34" sleeve. For work I will iron and get other less casual fabrics, but I am especially asking about the size. What do you think about the fit? How should I improve it? 

 

Also I'm happy to get color recs (in addition to blue) as I've been told yellow is not good for my skin tone.

 

Thanks.

As your question is about denim, you might be better off asking it in the Streetwear and Denim forum.

Suit question:

I can spend up to $1000 on a suit. Ralph Lauren Black Label 38S fits me absolutely perfectly off the rack, but is $1600+ per suit. Eventually that will be my solution, but it's just not in the budget at present as I need multiple suits. I tried Kent Wang with okay results, but since he doesn't offer a short and the cut isn't as slim I had to make a half dozen alterations and would have to do a bunch more to get a fit anywhere close to RLBL 38S. Is there an easier solution to my problem? I'd love something off the rack but think I have exhausted the possibilities (Suit Supply, Brooks Brothers 1818 etc). J Crew Ludlow is also a decent fit but I prefer wider lapels and want better construction. Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

WHERE are pictures of well-fitting shirts? Please point me to some. I have seen lots of talk about shirts and their fit, where the shoulder seam should fall, etc., but I cannot find any pictures of real people wearing perfectly fitting shirts.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)








The shirt's very baggy. If you can't find a slimmer fit, take it to the tailor and get the sides taken in or get it darted. I don't think you have a huge gut and lovehandles, but that's what it looks like in the pictures. You don't want to blouse your shirt over your waistband like it's the '90s. The sleeves also look too long the way they're wrinkling and the sleeve placket is puckering.

Are you sure you're a 16" neck? You might benefit from sizing down if you never plan to button the collar.
