    brooks brothers alterations are largely free on black fleece suits, I have a great guy but the dude charges rather steeply, so I'd rather not spend $100 on basic alterations. Anybody have any actual experience with shifting the buttons?

    Burberry is my wild guess. i have seen some in the burberry outlet not more than a few months ago and if my memory serves me correct they were rather similar to that one!

    So I bought these suede Quoddy chukkas from Mr. Porter a week or two ago- http://www.mrporter.com/product/324191

    I had them sprayed with a suede stain protector and waterproofer right out of the box. I was helping with some food prep yesterday and a drop of oil dropped directly on the toebox. By the time I realized there was a dark nearly black stain in the middle of the toebox about 1/4 inch in diameter, devastating. I tried using cornstarch to lift up the stain then a tiny amount of white vinegar with little luck, a bit paranoid to overtreat and make things worse.

    Do I have any hope of saving these via a professional shoe cleaner? I am traveling until next Monday so the soonest I will be able to see one is in 3 days, hoping that won't make it more difficult to treat as well.

    Hello Everyone!

    I am updating my closet and getting rid of all my hollister/express jeans and starting off with something more plain and simple. What would yall suggest in Levi's the 514 or the 501 shrink to fit? I tried them on and felt them in the store the other day and the 501's felt way more durable and raw if that makes any sense. Thanks!

    I would try using a rubber eraser to try to get most of it out. Probably won't get all of it out but it will help. Then maybe use a suede brush after.

    The 501 STF are raw. I haven't tried on 514s in a long time but I don't remember them fitting that slim. If you want a pair of cheap jeans you should maybe check out Uniqlo.




    A cobbler should be able to do this.

    How do you trade with someone securely? I'm pretty scared I'm gonna get screwed (over pretty expensive stuff)- so how do I prevent this?

    Does the seller have positive feedback?

    Is he an active member?

    Is he providing detailed pictures?

    PayPal.
