    Looking for a grey suit or fabric with muticolor pinstripes

    Hi everyone, I was rewatching Mad Men and remembered how much I liked one of Roger Cooper's pinstripe suits. I am now looking for something similar either at a made to measure online shop or perhaps just the fabric to take to a local tailor. What I like about this fabric are the contrasting...

    **The Official Shoe Care Thread: Tutorials, Photos, etc.**

    Hi All, I cleaned my chili colored AE shoes with saddle soap and in one spot it looked like the soap got absorbed by the leather and was darker than the rest of the shoe until it dried. After it dried it became lighter than the rest of the shoe and wouldn't go away even after a couple of layers...

    Maybe I didn't wait long enough. I'll try some more layers with 20-30 min in between.

    Yes/ I polished them when I first got them, about a year ago. Since then I would just reapply some more polish every once in a while. A few days ago I started applying polish in small amounts first, but after about 5 layers and not much difference I tried thicker layers as well. It's almost like...

    Having trouble getting mirror shine on AE strands. I got to a point where no matter how much more I buff them with Saphir Pate de Luxe + water, there's no improvement. The surface is somewhat shiny, but I can still see the pores very clearly. Any advice?

    No, they're not too short.

    These are Allen Edmonds. Should I consider this a defect and try to return them or is this expected?

    Is the crease on the right shoe's cap toe normal? The shoes are 1-2 months old. I usually see shoes crease past the cap toe, but not on the cap toe itself.

    Hm, they're completely new, straight out of the box. I suppose it's no big deal if these would form eventually anyway.

    My brand new AE came in today and one shoe has this odd crease. Does this look like a defect or will a crease like this form naturally anyway?

    Thanks for the words of encouragement and inspirational photos :) I definitely spent more than one hour on one shoe, but I've read that first time shine usually takes longer. Plus, I'm sure I still have a lot of work to do on my technique. One thing I'm not sure about is whether I should let it...

    Thanks, I'll keep polishing with less wax. Beautiful photos! :)

    Thanks, benhour. My room temperature is around 27C. I'll give your method a try, but it's not radically different from what I've been doing. The difference is that every guide I've seen says to use the tiniest amount of polish and you're recommending a "generous" amount :) Update: tried...

    Custom jacket fit questions

    Hmm, the armhole isn't too deep vertically. If anything else, I think might even be too small. It's almost cutting into my armpit. Unfortunately, I don't know what a proper fit should feel like, so I don't know if it's too small or not.

    Custom jacket fit questions

    Thanks for your response. Just to clarify, when you say the armholes are too deep, do you mean that they are too far back and should be moved closer to the chest?

    Custom coat fit questions

    Why do you want to see a picture without a scarf underneath? The scarf isn't very thick. There's also a jacket underneath, but sometimes I wear the coat just over a shirt.

    Custom jacket fit questions

    Hi everyone, I need help deciding if this jacket is too tight in arms for me. It looks great when I'm standing straight, but if I extend my arms even the slightest, numerous folds form. Is this expected or is the jacket too tight? Driving gets a little uncomfortable with my arms extended, and...

    Custom coat fit questions

    Hi, I had a custom coat made recently and I'd like to hear some opinions. I'm concerned about the fold that forms above and under the buttons. The logical answer is to move the buttons so it's as tight around the waist area, but it doesn't feel tight. It fits perfectly, but has these folds which...
