    Please do not tuck shirts into jeans

    What is wrong with tucking in shirts? Sorry I didn't specify but I was referring collared shirts. I just don't think they look right untucked if you wear a blazer.

    I wear a 7 UK in Clarks desert boots and I have narrow feet. What US size should I get for L.L. Bean classic camp moccasins? Other SF reference size: 40.5 in Vass New Peter last.

    Thanks.

    Are there any rules governing how to wear blazers? I've never actually had one in my wardrobe, and I'm trying to incorporate blazers into my aesthetic, but would it be bad to wear them with jeans that have a really strange wash or too much distressing? I mean to me it looks fine when I put them on with some of my DRKSHDW jeans, but I wanna know for sure.

    Question on jeans: I picked up a pair of Lucky 221's (slim) jeans. The tag said to dry-clean only, but their online website said to wash in cold water and dry on low. I'm getting them tailored to adjust the length, and decided I'd wash them 2-3x in cold water to make sure they were shrunk as much as possible. Questions: 1. Was this a terrible idea? 2. Coming out of the dryer, the jeans are still very wrinkled. Any tips? Can you iron jeans? This is them: (have a slightly different wash but close, and I only paid $50) http://www.luckybrand.com/221-Slim-S...ectedColor=461

    I just bought some Red Wing Iron Ranger Amber Harness boots and I was wondering what kind of oil I need to get for these.. something I can order online or something easily attainable would be good.

    Thanks a lot!

    Question about sunglasses and your face shape. I have a square-shaped face, which, according to online sources should be paired with a circular or oval shaped sunglass.

    Would my face shape also match with aviator-style sunglasses, particularly tom ford ones? I'm not sure how to classify the teardrop shape of aviators, and it seems that some people say that aviators go well with all types of faces (?).

    Is the new TOJ varsity quilted and madefor the winter? Or is it thin like the old anniversaries?

    The general consensus seems to be obenaufs oil. Be warned that it will darken the leather, as will just about all leather oil/conditioners. The cheapest I was able to find it online was about $20 shipped for 16 oz. Many use in conjunction with sno-seal if waterproofing is important. Some also use mink oil, this will soften the leather more but many claim it also will damage it.

    I just stumbled upon Dave's New York on 16th St.

    Anybody else get stuff there? From what I could see in-store, they have a great selection of Redwings and workwear stuff.

    okay so a bottle of obenaufs oil, thanks. Also, do I need sno-seal for these boots during winter? I guess so right? I can put on the oil and sno-sneal at the same time without it messing these boots up?

    thanks a bunch Albert.

    edit: I just received my boots in the mail, put them on. A bit tight around the sides but my toes have plenty of room, ankle feels a bit weird but I guess the boots will form to my foot in a few weeks. I went down half a size and Ive never really worn boots before, used to canvas shoes.. so the feeling is kinda weird at the moment lol. Not too tight though which is nice, but I see some blistering in the future, especially my ankle. Considering buying a inner sole, thoughts?

    Thanks for all the help
