    Does anyone know how Gant Rugger shirts fit compared of BoO shirts (I wear a Large in Band)? I should note a 20.5"-21" pit to pit/ 17" shoulder on any branded shirt is a perfect fit. Any suggestions on what size in GR I should pick up?

    Thanks

    Does anyone know if I can wash a 100% cotton blazer in a washing machine without destroying it? A little shrinkage would be fine, I'm just worried about destroying it as the tag says dry clean only.

    The jacket is a brooks brothers 100% cotton twill blazer, the material is fairly thick / heavy. The interior is lined with what looks like chambray, sleeves are lined with polyester. Thanks.


    Unless you absolutely have to, get it to a dry cleaner. It could easily ruin it if you wash it. Definitely don't advise doing that..

    Could be up for debate but i'd say you'd be a L in GR as well, just like BoO

    J Crew Fit Question. Regular vs Slim fit. I have a regular fit J Crew shirt (size L) which fits well at the shoulders/chest/arms but is too loose at the waist. Looking at ordering a shirt from the slim fit line. Do the slim fits maintain the same sizing on the shoulders/chest/arms with a slimmer waist? Or does it narrow up top too?
    I would think you would be L in slim fit. I have a slim fit in S and the regular fit in S which needed some darts.

    Do they still make these Dior Homme 19cm in indigo? If so, is there someone on the forum who still proxies them? I'm interested in getting a pair.
    That's the normal 19cm MiJ raw, of course they do. You can get it from any Dior stockist in the world.

    If it has a lining, it's not 100% cotton. Best not to wash it unless the care tag specifically recommends it.

    Oh -- and check the care tag. You might luck out. [​IMG]

    Are there any other respectable retailers\\etailers like Epaulet that have a good fitting and good quality line of inhouse chinos, shirts, dressshirts, trousers, etc? I have also been looking at ordering a few of Kent Wang's dressshirts as well.

    Any suggestions?

    I've ordered this denim jacket with a feeling that the chest measurement may be a bit too big for me. Would it be possible to get the pit-to-pit length reduced on it? I don't have any previous experience with clothing alterations.

    It's a big risk. Colour bleed is a possibility, and it may have fusing that could separate.

    If you're prepared to take the risk with washing it I'd handwash it in the bath or sink on a coolish wash rather than machine wash it. I have successfully handwashed garments labelled dry-clean only, but I've only risked it on items that I could afford to ruin...

    What shirts to pair with chambray shorts?

    Summer shoes recommendations that can be worn with socks?

    Shirts: Anything in a light color, I'd say. I wouldn't try to go for an all chambray look.

    Shoes: also light colors, maybe GATs?
