BTW to everyone, the measurements are close for me but not spot on, if it doesn't work I'll pass it along at cost so let me know if there's anyone who wants next dibs.

NEXT DIBS!

Just hot water and Oxyclean, applied liberally to the stain.

Big thanks to GMH on the heads up on this PRL 38S navy suit. Unfortunately the shoulder are a little off on me - let me know if any of you other vertically challenged guys want it at cost.

Guys, I'm looking for suggestions on where to look for any of the following shoes in an 8.5. RL website is sold out and I really like the shoes.


Newent Chelsea or Burnished boot in black: http://www.ralphlauren.com/product/index.jsp?productId=13315472

 

Newent jodhpur. http://www.ralphlauren.com/product/index.jsp?productId=23471206

 

No luck finding them anywhere and I guess the season's over so they're going to release new ones next year. Blah sucks that I missed them at that price. Oh well...


Hopefully someone else can get a deal for what's available!

Eazy, I've got an all white Kiton shirt I intend to try the treatment on (sans the vinegar step to help save the buttons). If you want to hold off I'll give it a try and let you know. After my first successful usage of the treatment, I'm going for it and throwing a Kiton, T&A, and super current EZ formal shirt in the bucket.

 

Re: saving the buttons from etching, you know what I just thought of? Remember those clear crayons that come with Easter egg dying kits, that you use to write on eggs before dying? I'm thinking that might be a great colorless way to more or less mask off/protect the buttons during the vinegar step. Where does one find one of those this time of year?

 

Found these yesterday in what will soon be my size. They already fit great, just slightly snug in the waist. Will be perfect for summer adventures in Joshua Tree/hiking/adventuring. Looks to be a style from a few years ago, comfortable as hell, a few really light marks on the back but I don't care for $6...

 

Anyone ever heard of this brand?

All I seem to find is that it existed in the 90's for a short time and seems unsuccessful. Really interesting/odd military/workwear themed piece, a 2 button pop over with chest pockets that had riri zippers, and 2 big shell (or seemingly so) buttons fastening the shirt. There was a bit of discoloration on the front which kept me from kopping, but I'm still curious about it.

 

@SpooPoker How about this one? Sorry for the dark lead pic...

Ticket pocket, dual vent, partially unlined (Click to show)

 

No clue how to date it… This is the only tag I can find. You'll probably want to replace the buttons with leather, as these are plastic (can add a fourth button to the sleeves at the same time you're having them lengthened). 

Measurements being sent to your inbox...

And if it ever needs a patch/re-weave...

It also came with this (Click to show)

These will probably not fit waist wise, but there might be enough in there to make it work. The length is dead on if not a bit long. A bonus really, as the coat works well on its own, so if these don't work, no biggie.

I just stopped by a place that sells leather (like massive rolls and sheets of the stuff) and they had a box of free scraps.

As for slleve length, I think deadboy might be right. See if there's any fabric tucked under. I've seen people shorten sleeves before so there might be.

Also, your comment about fabric composition: I have handled almost two dozen gloveralls and I have never seen one that wasn't a wool/poly (polyamide) blend. Unless there's some ultra-luxe 100% virgin wool special edition line, I think you've got as good as it gets.

I was having my doubts about those sleeves, and I appreciate you guys weighing in. The most I could add would be 1/2 inch. It's a size 38, and I usually wear 40, but I the shoulders fit--presumably because they make them baggy.

They do (or did) make 100% wool versions, though.

Pretty sure that's just clear wax. Not sure if you would want to coat your buttons in wax though.

Below is a duffel that I lenghtened the sleeves on, very satified with result.

I would personally try to find one that matches somewhat close and just exchange the one broken toggle



And to the guy a couple days ago wanting to shrink a unstructured linen blend blazer, I would definitly try it. I have succesfully shrunken one, that one 100% linen though

Nicely done!

Agreed on clear wax. It'd be a pain, but I figured just adding it for the treatment, then taking it off. Could always just not do that and try oiling the buttons after. Six of one, half dozen of the other in the end.
