    I have a TOJ Varsity jacket, but it's a big for me in the shoulders by a couple of inches (the original commissioner had broad shoulders). Do you think the average neighborhood tailor would be skilled enough to reduce the shoulder width?

    Or if anybody has a size 46 jacket to trade, that would be excellent.

    Thanks in advance!

    I'd like to know what SF thinks about: The best leather varsity jacket that is frequently sold new in the market place. I have not tried tracking down the discontinued winter varsity jacket from TOJ in my size, but I do know it sets a high standard.

    Price range flexible.

    Use the photobucket app (I'm sure there are others, that's the first one that comes to mind) and depending on whether you use the Rich Text or BB Code editor, use <img> (needs to be entered using the Source option in the Rich Text editor) or [​IMG]

    This may be slimmer (maybe call and ask them for measurements?).

    I'm looking at getting the Yuketen Sport Chukka boot. I'm a size 8 in Vans. I can get a 7.5 in the Yuketens or an 8.5. The online SA says that the 7.5 is close to 10", and says that I should prob. get the 8.5, because they don't have an 8. They do have a 7, which according to their measurements is just shy of 10". Any advice? I don't want to buy it just have it sent back. If it's really TTS, and I'm an 8 in that shoe, then I don't need to buy it. For the price, it's got to be spot on, I feel.

    Thanks.

    I'm actually not a tailoring expert, but the one thing that is constantly repeated by the tailors is that jackets must fit well in the shoulders, and most everything else can be adjusted. If it can be fixed, it's a complicated, time consuming procedure. It would be further complicated by leather. I would contact TOJ and see if they have advice.

    Recommendations on an online source/vendor where I can buy NATO straps for my watches? They look like such a simple/cheap concept. I don't want to pay $65 for one when a $5 one will suffice. But I also don't want to get one for $5 and see it fall apart or rust 2 months later. Any reliable brands or sites you'd recommend?

    For untucked button up shirts, is a straight or rounded hem better at the bottom of the shirt?

    I bought this Epaulet shirt in medium a few weeks ago and it's a bit baggy, but the collar fits snug. My dad said the shirt suppose to fit like that and it's nothing to worry about. I took his advice and waited too long that now I can't exchange it for a smaller size. I want to go to a professional tailor to get it fitted perfectly, is it possible? If I take it to the tailor what do I ask them to do?

    Note: I'm a fashion noob and never been to a tailor, so please take it easy on me.

    Syro forget bagginess and the neck, those arms look way too long on you.
    It's not helped by the high waist on the pants, but I think even without that they would look long.
    Have you had yourself measured? If your proportions are different than standard sizing (S/M/L), you might be better getting shirts with a proper neck & arm measurement.
    Epaulet is a popular company so you would probably have no trouble selling for 70% what you paid or so :)

    Hello,

    In the UK:

    Looking for a dark - brown, burgundy, not black - cap toe derby with dainite/commando sole to wear with blue, grey and khaki trousers and chinos, and dark jeans. The Crockett and Jones Bradford (last 341) looks a bit slim and the sole is leather, the C & J Sedbergh (last 325) may fit the bill, and the Trickers Matlock appears to be a tad wide - though I like it, commando sole, seen from the side. I'm just going by pictures. Please can I have your thoughts/experience re the shoes and/or suggestions of similar ones.

    New to this lark, please be kind - probably put a 'Kick Me' sign on my back :)

    Cheers,
    wigs

    Syro you look like me when I try to fit into a Medium in most any decent brand. Too long arms, too much baggy in the upper arms, and not so awesome bagginess in the back. Can't really see from the pic what the chest and shoulders are like. You should measure yourself (chest, shoulders, arms, waist etc)

    As far as tailoring...I think its a waste of money. You'd need to dart the back and possibly shorten the arms, maybe even shorten the length depending on how it is. I'd say it makes more sense to sell it and get a small

    Oh and I just noticed the shoulders in the back...unless Epaulet is diff to most shirts it looks to me like the shoulders are quite a bit too big....you are most likely a small.

    I'm sure your dad is a great guy but don't ask the older generation for advice...most fogeys dress like Steve Carrell in Crazy Stupid Love.

    I appreciate the help a lot meso and corneliusparky!! I'll make sure to check my measurements before I make my next purchase on a shirt. I took the advice and I'm selling it on classifieds :D

    So as Fall is slowing moving in, I'm totally want a vest or two. One atleast being a puffer (puffy) vest. What do you guys wear under it? I know you can sport a buttondown but what about a cardigan or other types of sweaters?
