    RL shirts comes in three different sizes (classic fit-->custom fit-->slimmest fit). I'm using slim fit shirts, since the other two (classic and custom) is to big. Also using small in Ralph Lauren sweaters.

    I don't understand why Ralph Lauren have marked some of their sweaters with "Custom fit". Here is two examples:
    Custom-Fit Long-Sleeved Tee
    Custom-Fit Long-Sleeved Polo
    A Ralph Lauren sweater like this one, in small, fits me perfectly. Would these "custom fit" sweaters fit me?

    Most stuff that is dry clean only that is outwear/formalwear is only so because of the acetate lining that shreds in machines. woolens and cashmeres you can gentle handwash. edit: hows the construction/durability/quality on neil barretts stuff? i think im in love -___- now if only they had smalls in stock
    ok, thanks
    I hand wash my shiz, such as RO, damirs, etc etc. except suits or anything has substantial amount of wool/cashmere, synthetic material. Those I get them steam cleaned/dry cleaned.
    I've been hand washing so far I guess I'll keep doing that. Dry cleaning a shirt or poplin pants is a bit extreme for me, but I was wondering if its absolutely necessary.

    I hand washed my poplin drkshdws. no problems. just go easy with the detergent. Most dry cleaners do more damage to the clothes than good. My shizz don't get dirty since I have a lot of clothes. Just a warm soak with some mild soap does the trick for me.

    What do you guys think is the optimal height for a boot, for the "boot tuck"? Like length of the shaft.

    Supposedly washing in cold water prevents shrinking. But my tees stretch out after a couple of wears. I tried cold water before, and didn't notice any difference.

    Common Projects Training Boots, size 44 - where can I get these online? Usual google results are all sold out. Are they going to be re-released in the spring or something? I can't imagine they're always this hard to find...

    it seems to work for me. When I bought the AA tees that have that label which says they all shrink by 20% or so I decided to just wash them by hand to prevent this, and they haven't shrinked at all.

    I machine wash all my AA tees, since I wear them to work out. But I treat my ROs, Damirs, Juliuses a bit better.

    Is it possible at all to make the sleeves on a leather jacket slimmer? Would a tailor be able to do something like that?

    Possible. Costly. How much was the leather jacket?
