    I've been looking for a pair of lace-up dress shoes, preferably light brown, that have a completely flat sole, i.e. no rise in the heel.

    Is there a specific term for these? If so, what is it?

    Also, is it recommended that when you buy slimmer jeans to have the inseem a size bigger than say a chino or straight leg jean to get the whole stacking effect?

    1.) No official term but check out Paul Smith or Schmoove (Gilt some on sale right now)

    2.) Yes

    I wear OCBDs to work 3 or 4 days a week in a business casual environment. Almost no one wears a tie in my office. I never iron my shirts, and I don't sent them to the cleaners. Every once in a while, I wear a tie if I'll be seeing a customer.

    Do I need to start ironing my shirts daily?

    I'm a college student. I have some clothes from H&M and Gap that fit good on me now but I know will shrink the first time I wash it and become too small. Any ideas on what to do with them? Another way to clean them perhaps?

    cold wash and hang dry will prevent alot of shrinking.

    that being said, i've never had anything from gap that shrunk enough to make much of a difference. I've tried shrinking a few gap shirts by washing hot and tumble drying hot, but even then the shrinkage was very minimal. Can't comment on H&M though, I only have one shirt from them and its a poly blend so it didn't shrink.

    ^^Hang them in the bathroom when you shower and it'll de-wrinkle your shirts enough to get away with.

    My OCBDs that are real oxford cloth (a lot of people use this to describe any shirt with a button collar) are incredibly easy to iron, especially the heavier ones. They crisp up real quick.

    That being said, they also look better without ironing than my harder to iron shirts.
