    Beige, pale blue, orange, brown, navy, wine, black - they're a pretty versatile colour

    Can anyone in Central London recommend a tailor to do shirt alterations? I want to shorten some gitman vintage shirts I have, but don't trust a dry cleaner service.

    Is it possible to find a jacket/coat that is:
    - non baller (<$300)
    - not hooded!!
    - not a leather jacket (preferably not a blazer as well)
    - versatile: can work on jeans as well as shirt/dress pant/oxford
    - short/mid-length

    It almost seems like peacoat is my only option. I am okay with a peacoat except for the fact that it drapes like shit when unbuttoned. So any jacket or brand recommendation especially with sales that is going on right now?

    does it necessarily need to be for cold weather? Like are you out fighting snowstorms or are you sitting on the beach in cali...

    Nope, only for mild winter temperature like around 40s to 50s. Kind of like San Francisco, except it's more humid where I live so it feels colder.

    You could get some waxed cotton from Filson or even BB. For Filson, look at Crane's Country Store as they sell under MSRP over the phone. BB will have a huge sale starting X-mas day (online) and the 26 (at B&Ms)

    Honestly, there are better options. Read around here more for some other ideas.

    Want to get some new casual sneakers, was looking for something new to buy kind of like Vans only a little different that not everyone has, the pic was taken in Germany, not sure if they are a German brand.

    It's a Spiewak New York Cop Jacket. Was $139 on Gilt today so I picked one up on a lark.
