Thanks!

I ended up ordering a 7.5 and I wear an 8E or 8.5D in AE PA's which run a hair long. Should work out!

They were 175 on gilt!


Your welcome! I hope they work out for you and that you found the Pediwear link helpful.:)

First-hand opinions on the comparative slimness of CT Extra Slim Fit vs. BB ESF? I see measurement charts assembled on 3rd party sites that would list the CTs in this comparison as slimmer, but wondering if anyone could speak more directly to the question. Which brand's ESF in a 16/35 will be slimmer?

FWIW, I take 16/35 in BBESF just fine. Up to now had only tried CT Slim fit, which were good, but still a bit of volume in the trunk - however, the measurement charts put the CT ESF as almost 4 inches smaller in the waist than ESF and wondered if that was true or just e-measurements being e-measurements.

If I don't want to tie the belt of my trench on the front which is the more appropriate way to wear it : to tie it on the back or to tuck it into the front pockets ? I would naturally tuck it into the front pockets but my trench has closed pockets so they need to be opened if I want to wear it that way.

I loop my belt in the back if I want it out of the way.

I am quite big into cigars wink.gif There is a thread simply named cigars here, which is about the only thread for cigars I read on this forum.

I think the measurements on the websites are correct and should be a good guide. I don't have a 16 inch collar handy, but I just took a BBESF 16.5 inch collar out of the cupboard and measured it. The waist is 45, just as the BB website says. I also just measured a CT ESF 16.5 collar. It's 42 on the waist, just as the website says.

I have been getting my shirts with darts in the back lately to reduce extra back fabric.

 

I want to do a make up with side pleats AND darts, thoughts? 

post #27384 of 28795
Well I suppose if you feel you could use a bit more room up around your upper back and shoulders but the shirts are baggy round your middle or lower back, you might need both darts and pleats. I get darts but no pleats myself.

Shaving soap, does it really make much difference from using regular hand soap?

For shaving, or for washing?  Though, in either case, yes.  Shaving soap, which I used a bit many years ago, provides a much more comfortable shave than would hand soap.  Shaving with hand soap sounds abominably unpleasant.  Shaving soap, I would imagine, does not cleanse the skin in quite the way hand soap would.  I would use each for its intended purpose.

Sorry, I just saw this thread. I think I should have posted this here to begin with.

Because of my dog's newly developed appetite for shoes, I need a pair of dress shoes by Saturday.

Tuesday, my dog ate my black dress shoes. This wasn't too big a deal, since they were old and of low quality to begin with. I have a dance to go to on Saturday though, so I have to get shoes by then. I only have a few options that I can go with, as I need the shoes so soon.

The options:

Florsheim Edgar (really not as shiny as the picture makes them seem)



Bostonian Andover





Cole Hann Caldwell

(I don't have any pictures of these, the other two pairs I ordered from zappos to try out. The cole Hanns are at a store nearby.)


Any advice? I've never owned a good pair of dress shoes with leather soles. I'm excited to have something better to wear and to dance in, but I want to make sure I choose shoes that I can use for a few years, and for work/ formal events. The cole Hanns are 155, the other two are 120. If the cole hanns are worth the extra few bucks, I'm not worried about the price difference. They are very shiny though, is that appropriate for a variety of situations? Or do they seem dressier because of that?

Thanks!
