    Allen Edmonds black McAllister men’s shoes 10.5D wingtips

    Selling my Allen Edmonds black McAllister men’s shoes in 10.5D. I purchased these classic wingtips new from Zappos on 4/21/2009 (receipt included) and they are in used but good condition having been worn approximately twice a week. I’ll include the original red Allen Edmunds shoe bags. They need...

    Dress shoes and foot corns?

    Thanks for all the advice. I think I am going to try a bunion stretcher - I wanted something to stretch my shoes in that spot but didn't know what it was called. And I may try going down a half size but up in the width (e.g. from 10.5D to 10E or something like that).

    Dress shoes and foot corns?

    I have two pairs of AE shoes - Park Ave and Mcallister - both 10.5D (and both are the 5 last). I've been wearing them for about 3 years, alternating between them during the work week. Lately I have developed corns on the outside edge of my pinkie toes on both feet. Until these developed, the...

    Shrinking rise on BB Fitzgerald suits?

    I have several Brooks Brothers Fitzgerald suits in 38R purchased over the last 2 years. I just ordered a couple more from the website and after trying them on, I find the rise to be way too short if the pants are sitting at my natural waist. Is BB selling low-rise suits now? I measured the...

    Most expensive repair on your watch?

    My new omega seamaster started freezing up overnight when it was only 6 months old. Sent it in and was repaired under warranty so I don't know the cost, but I later sold it and have no further interest in expensive automatic watches...my quartz Seiko works just fine (I do wish I could get a...

    Best Tailor for Alterations in Dallas?

    I also recommend Cantu Tailors, I've never had a problem with their pricing but I've never had major work done there.

    Polo Custom Fit vs. Brooks Brothers Slim Fit vs. Brooks Brothers Extra Slim Fit

    IMO you shouldn't fit your hands through the cuffs without unbuttoning them. That's why there are buttons. You can't fit your head through the neck without unbottoning it can you? Actually, I can:

    Silk Robe Instability

    There is this wonderful new invention called a "safety pin." It was scientifically engineered to attach one piece of fabric to another. Look into it.

    Brooks Brothers Friends & Family Sale 2010

    Today I bought a Fitz navy blazer using the FF sale + $60 of BB rewards cards. The reason I did that is because I've never seen the classic blazers go on clearance and don't expect them to. Well that and the fact that the blazer was of better quality than the suit in terms of fit and...

    Self-alterations: how hard is it to hem your own suit pants?

    I'm trying to get my suit pant length just right and I find that the tailors usually overshoot or undershoot regardless of what I tell them. For plain finished bottoms (not cuffed), how hard is it to do this yourself? I looked up instructions on doing a blind stitch by hand (I don't have a...

    When should I purchase Brooks Brother suit?

    If you had a corporate discount, they bumped it up from 15% off to 25% last weekend. Oddly, their website was giving even bigger discounts on suits with the corporate code. I bought a $1099 Fitzgerald 1818 Saxxon for $562. Basically it applied the 2 for $1499 deal then took 25% off without...

    Any experience with Richard Anderson Ltd.?

    Richard Anderson you say? I had no idea MacGuyver was so multi-talented!

    Dress Pants

    The problem is you bought dress pants, which are baggy, like a woman's dress. You should've asked for office pants, which are tight, like a cubicle.
