    Epaulet and Howard Yount are both in this price range, slim fit, and much higher quality than BR.

    edit...sorry read it wrong. Why not a split toe? Are you basically looking for a glorified boat shoe?

    Is this a forward or a reverse pleat? Also, would it be described as shallow or deep?

    Thanks, I knew I could count on SF to help me find something better than some of these mall brands...

    Any opinions of the quality of Howard Yount's brogues? I took a stab at it and ordered a pair in brown the other other day. Been exclusively wearing AE's for the last 5 years.

    Spilled a tiny bit of pasta sauce (quarter the size of a penny) on my tie today. What would you gentlemen recommend as the best way to get it out? FWIW, it's a silk tie (I think) from Brooks Brothers. Not super nice quality, but nice enough that I'd like for it to last for at least a few weeks.

    If there is any hope then its a good dry cleaner, you definately don't want to take water to a silk tie

    I've had success with saline solution on a q-tip for getting stains out of things.

    Looking for a pair of swimming trunks. I need to get rid of my baggy shorts. It's hard for me to find fitting shorts because most retailers only go down to 28" waist. I look in the kids section, but I can't find anything mature for my age, since the section is plagued by huge boardshorts with wacky colors and prints.
    Here are my measurements.
    Top of waistband on boxers is 2" below bottom of naval.
    Natural waist-26"
    Hip-32"
    Inseam(2"from top of knee to crotch area)-9-10"
    Outseam(top waistband to start of knee)-16"
    Thigh-17.5"
    Backrise(bottom ballsack to top waistband)-13-14"
    Frontrise(top waistband to bottom of ballsack)-11-12"

    I have a ~100$ price range. Looking for a 4" or 6" inseam since I am 5'4".
    Any help or direction is greatly appreciated, thanks.

    Don't buy it. It may be legitimate in terms of maker, but please go with one button peak or shawl lapel. The two button notch is pretty much a universal indicator that the wearer has no idea what a tuxedo is.
