    A wedding is more formal so you probably don't want to go with the button down collar. You may also want to x-post this question over in the MC version of this thread.

    does canada issue sterlingwear coats?

    if not wouldn't it be a better idea for him to order a US mil-spec one off ebay or something?

    Looking for brand recommendation for a jackets that will fit my measurements. I'm 5'10 but with a 8-9 drop (39chest, 30 waist) so smalls are very tight in shoulders and chest and mediums are ridiculously big in the waist. Looking for a bomber type jacket but don't want to spend as much as for a MMM or Dries.

    Thanks!

    R U looking for leather? If so, TOJ might work for you. I believe you can customize the measurements to your specs.

    Sorry, should have said I'm looking for nylon/military style. Does TOJ make a nylon one? I'm seen some on B&S but none on the forum.

    does anybody know a reliable place to buy replacement laces for common projects online?
    or a generic narrow lace that looks similar?

    I've tried CP directly, tres bien shop, nomad and a couple others with no luck.
    I need new laces for my '09 black training boots (9 eye) and for my '10 grey canvas safari boots.

    any suggestions would be welcome, thanks!!

    There was a guy who just tailored his own cheap jacket until it fit like something slim and uber-fashionable. He started a thread detailing the process; maybe someone else can chime in with a link.

    Where can I find the Red Wing GT or Beckman in the chestnut colourway? Hoping to find an online shop in N.America with them.

    Edit: I'm a sz 9.5 or 10...I'm aware of zappos.com but they're sold out of sz 10. Not sure if a 9.5 would work.

    Might be a bit of a weird question - will the arms of a shirt stretch at all after a few wears? Even a little? I have two Nom de Guerre shirts from last year and the shirts fit perfectly, except for the arms being a little overly tight. I don't have any issues with other shirts.

    Just wondering if there's anything I can do, or if it's a lost cause.

    I was always curious as to what exactly is the process for washing raw lightly colored or white denim. Are there any specialty brands of detergent for the lighter denim colors or anything else I should keep in mind compared to the darker variants of raw denim?

    Anyone know of any nice sweat pants that can actually be worn out that are reasonably priced - Slim (preferable with ribbed ankles though if it is slim enough it may not be needed) Maybe a slight drop crotch
