    I just purchased my first Devoa jacket, http://www.blackcelebrationstore.com/Product-Woven_Jacket_,55,61. Love everything about it, but the jacket length and sleeves are a bit too long.

    What tailor would you recommend in Los Angeles or Orange County to shorten the Devoa jacket?

    Also, the sleeves are 2 inches too long but they have functional buttons and a structured shoulder. Is it a good idea to try to shorten the arms? I don't mind the sleeves being a bit long since I don't mind the look and a lot of the model photos have the sleeves hitting at the knuckle.

    I bought a jean jacket and I am in love with it, but I can't use it with jeans, unless they're black or gray. Do I just bite the bullet and buy four/five pairs of pants to wear this thing everyday?

    Not really about clothes but something I've always wondered about - what's with the face-blurring/obscuring in people's pictures of themselves?


    Is it because they're ugly? Is it because their faces would take attention away from their outfit? If the latter, shouldn't you be wearing stuff that goes well with your face to begin with?


    why

    Burgundy coats in general may be too feminine to wear, the toggles push it well over the edge.

    Don't recommend you wear the same anything every day.

    There is a cold-dyed version of an item that I want. Would it be easy and inexpensive to have it dyed black?

    Looking for a standard grey sweatshirt. The problem is most repros seem to be short, loose, and ultimately fit like a sail. I'm looking for a long and pretty slim fit. Would prefer loopwheeled, and raglan sleeves. So far all I can find is this midweight sweat from RM, but the dimensions still seem a bit off. Anyone have some suggestions?

    Anyone know what shirt/what brand makes this? I'd be surprised if I could find this exact one but any similar's would be good too. Thanks

    Posted this in CM by accident but anyone have any advice on parkas for Boston's snow? Looking to avoid the ubiquitous Canada Goose. TOJ would have been perfect (If anyone has a fishtail in a small, sell it to me. Any color is fine). Woolrich and spiewak aren't doing it for me. Just gonna be used for walking for no longer than 30 mins.

    Anyone know where I should look for a deep forest/olive green knit cardigan?

    Just a plain basic one, no frills.

    I've actually not seen a cardi that color I can remember oddly enough. There must be something available.

    MMM boots I'm considering say TTS. I'm usually a slightly roomy 44, good chance a 43 might fit me?

    Hi,

    Anyone know where I could get these cargo pants (or something else with similar fabric)?

    No idea about the cargos, but I'm pretty sure the fabric is ripstop.

    Anyone know what the Prop 65 warning on boots would be? Rubber soles or is there some chemical application on the leathers?

    Where does "genuine full grain nappa leather" fall under the leather quality scale?

    Epaulet makes these--not cargo but same fabric.

    Q: How do McNairy footwear run? I'm a 10 in Red Wing / Alden Leydon | 10.5 in Clarks / Jack Purcells / 11 in Nikes / 43 in MOMA.

    Would 9 UK be good? Or 9.5 (which means I'm out of luck re: the pair I'm looking at...)
