The following oddly-designed PRL loafers (latex combat sole, furry lining??) are listed on ebay. I usually wear AE balmorals, but need something a bit more relaxed. YAY or NAY?

Has anyone ever had good luck having shoes stretched? I have a pair of gorgeous suede captoe shoes that have the best suede I've ever felt but the toebox is slightly too small. Has anyone had good luck getting the toebox stretched? I'm probably returning these otherwise.


Thanks!

Looks like a great fall/winter shoe.

I am looking to buy some quality shirting fabrics online. So I can go to my tailor and do CTM.

 

Can anyone recommend me some websites? 

 

I also want to know how much fabrics do I need in order to make one shirt (I usually wear size S for every brand).

 

 

 

Thank you for your advice :)

Decent looking thread that covers your question:

Any suggestions for combinations with this jacket:

 

 

 

 

 

Initial thoughts are that a pink or light blue shirt, and stone, light grey or beige trousers would work. Perhaps add a pocket square with a slight pattern, or just plain white or light blue.

 

Jacket material is 86% wool and 14% silk.

I'm looking for some jacketing fabric in either brown glen check/pow or brown/burgundy gun club or houndstooth Around the 350-400gm mark. Anyone got suggestions wher I can find such stuff?
I've seen a couple really nice examples in the fox and John Foster books but I'm only looking to spend about $100-125 per meter.

I have two summer events (one a wedding, the other my 20 yr hs reunion) I'll be attending. One on the north shore of long island and one in nj, both at waterside dining establishments. Given the season and location of both I want to wear cream colored wool trousers, and a blue odd jacket. My question is shirt and tie. I've been looking for an excuse to buy a blue Sheppard check and now I've got one. My concern is how it will show against a light blue shirt. I didon't like the idea of white shirt and cream trousers. Any thoughts?

Is it reasonable to wear a shorter sportcoat in the summer? I'm thinking of buying a seersucker sc that's 1-1.5 inches shorter than what I usually wear.

Blue and white stripe? Or blue with a white contrast collar?

 

When you say a blue shepard's check, do you mean navy and white?

Hey everyone,

 

I'm in my second year of Law school, and will be in the interview process soon. I'm looking for a pair of fine, classic, black lace-ups. I'm looking at a budget of preferably under $500. I was wondering if anyone here (with your extensive knowledge!) can point me to some of my best options. I'm not looking for too pointy of a toe, just something that will look sharp with a well-tailored suit and shine!

 

Here's an example:

 

 

Thanks!

Carmina are good.  Try these, too:

http://www.jfitzpatrickfootwear.com/products/windermere-black-box-calf#.U3uLgtLa58E

 

These are a hell of a lot of quality for your money.  I especially like the toe shape on the latter.  The former are safer and more conservative if you prefer not to have any brogueing.

I'd just go for black PA's man. Why spend more when you can get what is essentially the american gold standard.
