    Will I ever get a real answer? Not to be rude, but that's the 4th fake response I've gotten. Cosplay is dressing in costume from an existing media; that is actually a street style which apparently no one seems to have ever seen before. I mean super starched collars, layering, epaulets, classic patterns like that plaid, bright colours, zippers, vests, different coloured sleeves/collars, loose ties...no one knows what that's called?
    No one really has an answer for you. It's like a bad offshoot of punk/new wave/Victorian.

    I don't really know anything about the whole cold soak/hot soak stuff with jeans, so was wondering if someone could elaborate on whether I could shrink a new pair of 7's I bought a month and a half ago. They fit perfectly when I boughtt hem, but I've lossed a bit of weight so the waist is a little lose. They can stay up without a belt, but it's not perfect. Can they be shrunk a little bit at all?
    probably not, but it can't hurt to try. They're not raw (I'm assuming), so you're not going to get the inch or more of shrinkage, but if you wash them/dry them, they might shrink. of course it may also change the fit.

    I just ordered a pair of these shoes (Tretorn Skymras) and now I'm having second thoughts. Any opinions?
    I can kind of guess at the answer so maybe I'm just looking for someone to convince me not to buy these.

    I'm really not a fan. I really, really like the T-56 in white, though.

    Hi,

    I was wondering if it was still stylish to wear two polo shirts?
    I was thinking of wearing a baby blue Ralph Lauren polo over a white one. I'm not going to pop the colars because I think that looks ridiculuous.

    I will hopefully be buying a Barbour Bedale this week. Two questions:

    a) where should this fall, in terms of length?

    b) are they quite easy to tailor (both taking one in and shortening the overall length)?

    xpost from wallet do you use thread

    What do you all think is a reasonable price range for a wallet?

    My last wallet was the Tumi french calfskin bifold... but my friend lost it so I'm looking for the perfect SF replacement. That last wallet was $100.

    Now I kind of want the Bottega Veneta intrecciato bifold (without coin compartment). But $500 in the pocket, or $500 in wallet-form?

    Or a sharp Paul Smith wallet? Wexler and Co might be releasing a wallet soon as well. Too many choices.

    Hey everyone, I'm trying to decide whether to buy this shirt or not. It's on sale at a great price, but only an XL is left. I'm more of like a medium. Going buy the measurements...I will have to take in the chest 3 inches, not a problem. I'm concerned about having to take in the shoulders...(doesn't list measurements of this)

    Will a basic tailor (inside the mall) be able to do this, while keeping the nice dark, contrast stitching?

    What about the circumference of the arms? Will that be hella baggy and need tailoring too?

    Will the neck area be way too big for me, and will the pockets sit all weird(too low)? ahh please help!

    Here's the shirt (I'm guessing he's wearing a medium)
