    Need a Black/Navy semi-casual trouser/pant that fits slim. Preferably under ~$130

    Is there something between Navy chinos and Ervell trousers? Or am I better of just getting good quality chinos?

    Thanks in advance

    You can get oxford cloth shirts that don't button down, but obviously they're no longer OCBD's... Pretty much any English shirtmaker sells them.

    Anyone owned or tried on both Redwing Iron Rangers and Thorogood 6" Moc Toes? How does the fit/sizing compare?

    oh no. it's probably way too dirty for anyone to work on. however your mother might be willing to do it. just wash the jeans man.

    How to store jeans, and perhaps sweaters. The last couple of days i have been shopping, i have seen that many places store their jeans by using those coat hangers with clippers: Like this here; borrowed the picture (member furey posted this) [​IMG] Is this to save room? Or would it actually preserve the jeans better ? I would guess that it would prevent unnessarry folding marks. Also, if anyone has used their time to search; have anyone found any coat-hangers that doesnt give your sweaters those "shoulder nipples"? And good quality ones (wood if possible) with "clippers; like the posted picture above) Thanks!

    Depends on where you go. Denim Doctors, Self Edge, or Blue Owl (I think they all do repairs, but you should contact them) probably will. I'd probably soak them anyway, if I were you. The residual starch along with any dirt, salt, oil, &c. that have built up with wear are leading to extra wear at the crotch, which is part of the reason you're getting the blowout.

    If you're really concerned with high-contrast, starch-induced fades, just spray starch (after getting them back from being repaired) at the relevant points (lap whiskers, honeycombs, stacks) like IIIrd Icon does.
